When Disinformation Campaign enters the battlefield, you draw a card and each opponent discards a card.
Whenever you surveil, return Disinformation Campaign to its owner's hand.
Disinformation Campaign Discussion

I want to fit in 2x Hostage Taker into my esper here deck, Esper Hero. RIght now the way the maindeck and sideboard is constructed, I have pretty good matchups against aggro decks and control. I have enough incidental lifegain and removal that I can get past the early game in aggro matchups and they run out of gas and I take over in the late game. I've had success against red based aggro, mono white, and other hero decks with this. In control matchups, between Duress , Thought Erasure , Basilica Bell-Haunt , and Disinformation Campaign I have enough hand disruption/discard that they can't' take full advantage of all their card advantage and it really evens the playing field. I've had success against esper control, jeskai control, and bant nexus because of this. My tough matchup is against sultai. I usually do well in the early game against them, but between their removal and the card advantage they get from Krasis and Find they can out grind me. I think Hostage Taker can help in those matchups. Whether it's taking a krasis or and explore creature I can gain a little bit of card advantage myself which would be great in the late game. I just don't know where to fit it in. I can see it being a liability in some matchups, so I was figuring it's more of a sideboard option in my deck. But honestly I don't know what to cut from the sideboard. There isn't anything I don't use regularly out of the sideboard at FNM. I know I can't be 100% prepared for literally every matchup, but I can see this coming in for more than just the sultai matchup, I just think it'll help the most there. Any suggestions as to where I can make the change, even if you think it's the mainboard. Maybe hearing others thoughts and opinions will help me decide what's best. Thanks!

OK - I have been playing around with similar builds and have a few comments.
2) I found that Disinformation Campaign under-performs and slows down the deck. If you play 4 Siren's Ruse you don't need Blink of an Eye , specially if you play some other cards that might speed up the deck.
3) Thief of Sanity can be a total game changer in this deck, allowing you to select your opponent's strongest cards and play then as your own. I like equipping Aether Tunnel to Thief of Sanity to create an unblockable 3/2 creature that does damage each turn and also gives you one of your opponent's cards into your 'second hand' each turn. IMO 3,or 4 Thief of Sanity are a must in your main-board.
My choices would be:
-2 Mission Briefing (pay 2 mana to select an instant to replay -then have 2 less mana to play that card - doesn't work until late in the game)
+1 Siren's Ruse
Then have some fun
Building on this theme, I would certainly have Hostage Taker in the side-board. It is a pity that we can't also play Nightveil Specter (from the guild-kit). I would consider the option of being able to drop Blink of an Eye for Curious Obsession to give your unblockable Thief of Sanity even more oomph.

Blink of an Eye it is then! =)
Thanks a lot for the suggestions and the upvote!

Since you're banking on both surveil and discard synergies, I think Disinformation Campaign is good enough to mainboard, as it plays very nicely into both.

Thoughts on getting Seal Away in? Imo, you have enough counter spells to drop one or two and jam seal. Cheap cost gets you another head up on aggro, and the exile clause is super relevant against Phoenix / Find , and same argument for Syncopate over Sabotage (plus it hits some other nonsense ).
I'm on the fence for Disinformation Campaign but you'll have to let me know how it runs. I'd be more comfortable with just one/none, another Chemister's Insight / Search Flip and maybe even a Precognitive Perception . I could be totally wrong though, it could absolutely trash an opponents hand, so I'd love to hear feedback on its reliability.
Hype for esper control though, and from someone with very little wild cards, you're doing god's work by getting some firsthand testing in!

Rekindling Phoenix is a great option. I really like discard at the moment, especially in grixis because there are so many options. Disinformation Campaign is really good alongside Thought Erasure , and even better if you change Ionize to Sinister Sabotage . Grixis also has access to Angrath, the Flame-Chained , Carnival / Carnage (in a week or so), Discovery / Dispersal , and The Eldest Reborn . Also, I can easily see aggro decks running all over this, I would run some number of Ritual of Soot or some kind of wrath effects with additional ones in the sideboard.
