TheMazter13 on Esper control

If you're gonna run Counterbalance , Sensei's Divining Top for sure. Spin the top in response to the counterbalance trigger, rearrange your cards to find correct CMC, then counter a spell pretty reliably

Probably cut Isochron Scepter , don't think it does enough. It hits Counterspell , Cyclonic Rift , and Lim-Dul's Vault . It also hits Enlightened Tutor , but who cares you're already finding enchantments with Zur. Probably the only good card to hit is Silence which just reads "Pay : Opponent can't play Magic", but only in a 2 player game. In 3+ players, it just picks on one player, which could be good, but I don't think that's what control is getting at.

Rings of Brighthearth does actual nothing besides making mana with Basalt Monolith , but even mana in this deck does nothing

Don't think Sheoldred, Whispering One does much apart from sacrifice for opponents. While powerful, her first ability doesn't do much. You could play Dictate of Erebos or, for cheaper, Attrition or Grave Pact . They all pretty much do the same things, but your creatures do have to die. However, you could play Bitterblossom (In place of your Rings of Brighthearth for example) to make creatures that can not only attack, but be fuel for a sac fire

If you want to get more Tax / Stax -y you could play Rest in Peace over one of your do-nothing unblockable things cough Aether Tunnel Cough

Throw in some card advantage with Necropotence but also some card disadvantage with Helm of the Ghastlord . It's not 3 mana, but by god does it do wonders for hand sizes and for commander damage
