We asked a couple of players how to beat Abzan, arguably the biggest deck in the format and the one match-up one absolutely has to have a plan against …

How do You Beat Abzan?

Thoralf Severin: With Hornet Queen! Trading five to one is pretty good and returning it with Whip of Erebos is absoluetly insane.
Matej Zatlkaj: By being aggressive and exploiting their lack of consistency, punish their bad draws, ignore Siege Rhino. Either that or go over the top with control or delve strategies.
Oliver Polak-Rottmann: Grind out the game with better late-game options. Siege Rhino doesn't affect the Sultai deck.
Denniz Rachid: My plan is to play better; my deck probably has a 50-50 match-up against Abzan—like most decks really.
