You shouldn't ever run out of permanents while keeping your opponent free of blocking creatures. Any deck that relies on getting big creatures into play without hard-casting them (Oath, Reanimator, Angry Hermit) won't be able to win with this guy on the board either.

Conclusion:

It takes quite a bit of skill to know when to attack and when to tap or bounce with the deck because I've lost damage races one way and let the game slip away in other games. For the most part, it's pretty obvious what to do. If your opponent has 4 creatures and you have 5 with and Oppo, it's probably best to attack with your biggest creature instead of tapping a single land.
