With Ensnaring Bridge in play, all creatures with power greater than the # of cards in your hand will be unable to attack. Keep in mind that this also affects your creatures as well as your opponents’! If you’re playing a Weenie deck with creatures that are difficult to block (i.e. Flying, Shadow, Landwalk, etc.) then you can fly under the radar while your opponent is prevented from attacking. One loophole around this is to use inflatable creatures like Frozen Shades or Dragon Whelps and inflating them AFTER you’ve declared them as attackers. Also beware that activating abilities that cause you to draw additional cards may offset the protection offered by Ensnaring Bridge and you may need to take precautionary steps to not draw additional cards, like I’ve shown in the video below when I had multiple Thieving Magpies in play.

Just because your opponents’ most powerful creatures can’t attack doesn’t mean it’s game over since they can still defend. But keeping them at bay for a few turns might buy you the time you need to come up with an effective counterattack.
