May have been me lol. I play alongside Creeping Tar Pit in my Dimir rack deck. May be better suited for my version since I dont run ensnaring bridge in the main and I dont have a very demanding curve.

So actually, I have thought about the addition of Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive just for a little bit of poke, maybe kill a Jace, the Mind Sculptor or two. My findings have brought me to the conclusion that Creeping Tar Pit and/or Faerie Conclave would have the same, if not more impact on controlling planeswalkers. Thank you for your suggestion, however I feel that running man-lands creates more interaction and possible board impact.

Neurosis, Creeping Tar Pit is the only man land that can't be blocked, and also Mystical Teachings flashback cost is 5 colorless and 1 black, the black is definitely needed in the deck, and the curve on this website is off but it plays out just fine. I 2/0 amulet titan with this deck so.. Not really complaining with those results lol

Creeping Tar Pit and Planeswalkers

Thanks for the insight guys, I really do appreciate it.

That said, i'm not sure how much more wincons I'm looking to add. Between the Colonnades, Snaps, and Walkers I feel like I have a good amount. I'd probably add Creeping Tar Pit before any of the other suggestions.

If I main deck Surgical Extraction , should I be running Extirpate in the main as well?

I like Countersquall , and I'll work on fitting a second Spell Snare , but I had thought modern doesn't run three drop counterspells. Is it the life gain that makes Absorb worthwhile?

PlatinumOne is trying to change your deck from Esper Control to Esper Death's Shadow. I wouldn't go down that route, as it's a totally different deck and I think Esper Charm is phenomenal in a Control build. Also Delver of Secrets  Flip is bad in Modern because it's so fragile, so I don't know he would suggest that.

If you find that you want more win conditions, there's plenty you can build into Control without changing the entire archetype. More Snaps, Vendilion Clique , Creeping Tar Pit , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Torrential Gearhulk , Tombstalker , Necropolis Fiend , and Tasigur, the Golden Fang are all good options.
