The one-two punch of Traverse the Ulvenwald + Tireless Tracker is becoming more and more of a mainstay of Shadows over Innistrad standard format. We have seen it paired with just black, with black and blue, and with black and red. MODO user GBruno decided to pair it with blue and red, leaving black in the bench, and he managed to make a 5-0 run on an Competitive League with this.

The inclusion of blue and red allow us to include some cards to attack the midrange battle from an entire new angle. First of all, Counterspells - Counterspells are extraordinary well situated in today's metagame, since everyone is aiming to tap out as many turns as possible, making cards like Clash of Wills very effective. Second: Jace, Vryn's Prodigy. If the metagame turns out to be a midrange fest, being able to filter our hand and replay our best cards is a nice feature to have.

The card that took my attention was Brutal Expulsion. A very hyped card, we don't have seen much of it. However, we have a lot of instants here and creatures with Flash, so it is feasible to pass turn with 4 untapped mana and get a crucial advantage - how about returning that Avacyn you're playing back to your hand while exiling your Hangarback Walker?

Standard is becoming a format that rewards practice with your deck and with your format. So why not attacking it from a different angle? This will make your opponents unable to take well-informed decisions.
