Andy Hanson's Cascade Control

How do you beat a deck like Jund where nearly all of its cards are more than one card? If you're Andy Hanson at the Hiawatha, Iowa Magic Game Day, you do it by playing more such spells! Most of the cards in Andy's deck have cascade, meaning when he casts Bloodbraid Elf he's almost assured to turn up Esper Charm or Blightning, which are plus two cards either way you slice it. A powerful strategy for the new world of Standard.
