I am a co-owner of Steel Hammer Games, specializing in collectable card games and related events.

I have also developed shareware products, specifically BBS games, a long time ago in a Pascal far far away.

comment What general strategy exists for countering a white swarm/pump deck?
Do you mean Chalice of the Void will counter Hive Mind copies of spells? No it won't. From the rulings on Hive Mind: "The copies that Hive Mind's ability creates are created on the stack, so they're not "cast." Abilities that trigger when a player casts a spell (like Hive Mind's ability itself) won't trigger."

While Circle of Flame isn't a bad answer, there are a more than a few inexpensive 2/2 white humans. It also doesn't answer the pump up. How does shock take out 1-2 enchantments? Are you supposing that the pump ups are in the form of enchant creatures?

@DForck42 Yes, I wasn't sure if white weenie also included the pumping characteristic.

Then "enters the battlefield" implies "on the battlefield"?

comment What is the most effective creature that can be resurrected from the graveyard in MTG?
It can be flashed, so it can be played at the end of an opponent's turn. This way, their response is severely limited.

comment Can you claim a Double Sacrifice Bonus?
You would be able to claim a bonus for "whenever a creature is sacrificed" worded abilities, but cannot use it for sac x: do y because the Eldrazi is stating the sacrifice is an upkeep cost.
