comment What are good strategies against counterspell decks?
Another strategy is to force the control player to play/spend mana on their turn as much a possible. You do this by playing instant speed threats such as Restoration Angel on their turn and then they won't have the mana to disrupt/counter on your turn.

Also, I want to add some more ideas. Over tax their counter spells: Make the person run out of counter spells before you run out of resources by playing as many must counter threats as possible (i.e. play powerful spells every turn and eventually you'll run them out of counter spells). For example, have a lot of similarly costed creatures that will end the game if unchecked or play as many different threats as possible if the opponent has conditional counter spells (i.e. play both powerful creatures and planeswalkers and force the opponent to deal with the diverse threats)

comment Where can I play magic in Berlin?
@JonathanHobbs, I disagree because part of the the gaming experience is the social aspect of meeting people to play, especially for MTG. Unless you're playing with friends or on MTGO, knowing where the local game store is located is necessary to play. I agree with shujaa that if edits are needed, we should edit it to be more general, i.e. "Where can you find a place to play MTG?".
