How can Battle of Wits become a top tier deck in Standard?

Truthfully, I think the only way this is going to happen is if Return to Ravnica has a lot of powerful spells. Back when I played battle back in 2002, it wasnâ€™t a combo deck. Iâ€™d say a majority of my games were won by 2-for-1 followed by 2-for-1, and winning with Urzaâ€™s Rage with kicker and Yawgmoths Agena. The spells arenâ€™t as good and the creatures are so much better today. Both Geists (Geist of Saint Traft and Strangleroot Geist) are a problem. And the manaâ€™s not as good today, and the acceleration is awful. Itâ€™s still fun, but itâ€™s not going to be a top tier deckâ€¦ although Iâ€™d love for it to be!
By playing 200 less cards.
Iâ€™m not sure it actually can, but itâ€™s a very fun alternative. Weâ€™ll find out after today if it can!
They would need to make more tiers.
I donâ€™t think it can become a top tier deck.
How can it become a 'top tier deck?' I guess it needsto drop 190 cards. And Battle of Wits.
