Your Guide to Control in EDH, Part 1: Threat Assessment

I’ve seen a few posts and comments around the EDH subreddit asking for advice in building and playing control in this format, and, since I seem to pilot a majority of decks that are classified as control, I decided to take a stab at talking about it.
