Icefall Regent

Creature — Dragon


When Icefall Regent enters the battlefield, tap target creature an opponent controls. That creature doesn't untap during its controller's untap step for as long as you control Icefall Regent.

Spells your opponents cast that target Icefall Regent cost more to cast.

I think you should probably use Hunted Lammasu or Akroan Horse instead of Hunted Phantasm . Giving them one creature would be much easier to manage than having to deal with 5 1/1s.

Right now, Serum Visions is the only card that Teferi, Time Raveler helps out. You could probably cut those Teferis for more finishers, like Icefall Regent or Niblis of Frost .

I think you need some way to permanently deal with creatures. In modern, there are some creatures that you can't just let a stay on the board for extended periods of time, like Dark Confidant .

Frost Titan or Icefall Regent ? Both are >$1 and could help close out the game. Awesome list!

Browbeat is certainly an interesting cantrip option, but it is unreliable because it depends on the other player. Blightning is awkward in this deck because of its mana cost, and tbh I think I'd rather stick to Bolt.

Thunderbreak Regent is shifting the deck in a more midrange direction. Although it is proactive it isnt really what I want to do as a control deck, as it doesn't contribute to the lockdown effect that Icefall Regent provides.

But thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to make these recommendations. I appreciate it and would be glad to hear from you more often :)!

All fantastic ideas, for sure, since I do run Guardian of Tazeem, Icefall Regent, and Vizier of Many Faces (even though I keep forgetting to update...)

I would put in Roil Elemental and Rhystic Study for sure if I had them, because...well, Rhystic Study is silly.

I had thoughts about Hypnotic Siren, however it would only work once, as I don't think I can clone it for its Bestow cost, therefore it would only be a one time usage.

I have a Keiga deck too, here's a few of my thoughts from my build.

Guardian of Tazeem & Icefall Regent because they can be political or slow the board down for a turn.

Roil Elemental & Hypnotic Siren: more stealing options in case Keiga cannot stick.

Vizier of Many Faces & Body Double: Vizier gets you 2 clone activations and BD can get a threat from the yard or target a previously used clone to target Keiga and thus steal again.

Fact or Fiction & Rhystic Study: are 2 draw outlets I always jam in my blue decks.

If you want to play things like walkers and big spells in the Esper Colors, you should probably go for a control shell.

The cards you should be looking into obtaining if that's the case (That aren't overly expensive moneywise), are:

Serum Visions and Opt are the best consistancy spells. They Allow yoy to filter your draws as the game progresses.

Path to Exile is the best Removal spell in your colors, followed closely by Fatal Push. If you don't find them too expensive, play them (5-8 in a combination of the twon is my recomendation.) Besides those, Go for the Throat is good, but don't play more than 2. Blessed Alliance is a very flexible removal option. Condemn is also playable. It's really good against Death's Shadow, but otherwise mostly just a replacement for Path to Exile if you can't get enough of those.

As for counterspells. You've got a lot of decent options. 1-3 Mana Leak, 1-2 Negate (or Countersquall if you feel your manabase is consistant enough). 0-2 Remand and 0-1 Spell Snare. Other than those there is Deprive, which I don't particularly like, and Logic Knot which really takes Fetch-lands (like Flooded Strand and Polluted Delta) to be worthwhile.

Lingering Souls is a super consistant both as a block outlet, and a damage rack. I would run between 2-4 in almost every slow modenr deck that has black and white. But it's potential increases and decreases with how likely you are to get it into your graveyard by your own card effects. ( It gets better in decks with Collective Brutality and Liliana of the Veil). If you do decite to play Lingering Souls, Sorin, Solemn Visitor can be a great planeswalker.

Esper Charm is flexible card advantage. It's great.

As for Mass Removal. I would run a couple Supreme Verdict, but Wrath of God is also an option.

As for what to cut from your current list, I feel like your very worst cards currently consist of:

Gideon, Champion of Justice, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Tezzeret, Master of Metal, Diabolic Tutor, Quietus Spike, Icefall Regent, Angel of Condemnation, Aegis Angel, Followed Footsteps, Authority of the Consuls, and Dictate of Heliod.
