It was, and probably always will be, one of my favorite formats. But what do I know? I suck at this game.
I remember this format well because I was rooming with Josh and the rest of the crew that year for Gencon. Everyone was literally like "Well I guess I play Dreams, or find something that beats it." Leave it to Josh Lu of course to build a Deck I would say... Ten hours before the start of the event, test it a bit, abandon it, and then come back to it that morning, and still Top. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough to build ten copies of the same deck.
The solution to Dreams was to not Attack. If they were only knocking two cards out of your hand with Dreams and not getting two back, you were both going -2.
