How does your deck handle Hangarback Walker?

Ivan Floch

Ivan Floch: I'll just have to destroy it and then kill the tokens. That's why the card is so annoying. There's no other way around it for my deck.

Fabrizio Anteri

Fabrizio Anteri: With Anafenza, the Foremost, or just fight back with my own Hangarback Walker.

Thoralf Severin

Thoralf Severin: Well, I can counter it. And if it's small enough it doesn't harm you, and if it's big you can either destroy it and then sweep the board with a Wrath-effect. Or just chump it and ignore it.

Andrea Mengucci

Andrea Mengucci: I have Abzan Charm and Anafenza, the Foremost. The key is to resolve Anafenza and kill Hangerback Walker on the same turn. You don't tap out for it on turn three but wait until you have extra mana for something like Dromoka's Command.

Michael Bonde

Michael Bonde: It can be a problem if I attack into it. But once I can create a boardstall it can grow as big as it wants, because I am just going to attack in the air. If my opponent then can't kill it himself it's not going to do anything.
