@Pygmyrhino990: Your primer was a very interesting read and I must say I agree with many of your card choices and direction you wanted for the deck. As a matter of fact, pillow-fort and combo were the first type of decks played early on, and I think I can help you hone your list a little bit. I'll first point out a few things I noticed while reading your primer, and then I'll talk about some suggestions on how to improve your list.
I strongly agree wth you that Esper (UBW) is a very good color combination, as it gives you access to arguably the two best colors in the format (UB) and allows you to splash W for its enchantments and removals. Colorwise, you are on point, and this is the way to go with a pillow-fort, combo deck.
You said in your primer that Triplets give you political superiority. I'm not quite sure I agree with you here. It's a strong spell no doubt but if anything, it makes you a hate target, at least that's been my experience playing it and similar decks. In addition to the hate, the other challenge to playing Triplets is to resolve it and then keeping it alive. However, I can see you have that covered with some staple permission spells and artifact protection given by spells like indomitable Angel. Personally, I'd go with some cheaper counterspells, as my plan to cast + protect Triplet would require less mana (e.g., switch desertion and dromar's charm for somethgin like swan song and dispel).
Now, there are a few cards that I feel your deck is missing and that I know they would improve it tremendously. They are the following:
- Yawgmoth's Will: Black staple and the best graveyard recursion spell out there.
- Replenish: If you are playing lots of enchantments, this card is a must. It's also a cheap way to "reanimate" powerful enchantments. I'll get back to this later.
- Academy Rector + Flash: Single best way to cheat a powerful enchantment like Omniscience into play.
- Intuition and Entomb: Now, I mentioned YawgWill and Replenish earlier. They are good cards on their own but they are much more powerful when used in combination with spells that let you choose what's on your graveyard. Intuition and entomb are the go-to for enhancement-based combos. Picture this: Turn 3 intuition at your last opponent's EOT for solemnity, decree of silence, and omniscience; no matter what they give you, you Turn 4 replenish and lock your opponents from the game.
I think I have a list here that play things along this line. Here it is: Oloro, The Omniscient. The list is probably outdated now (I really like your solemnity+decree idea and would prob incorporate to that oloro list) but it might give you a few additional ideas on how to improve your Triplets list.
Anyway, good stuff you have here. I know you enjoy the deck because you must have spent so much time writing this primer. Keep it up and good games!

And this has nothing to do with magic but in the line
It should just say Cast not Casted. English is weird and cast is the same for the past and future tense. So you say I am going to cast the spell. Or I have cast the spell. The only time the word cast changes is for the present tense. So you would say I am casting the spell but you never say casted for this word specifically. I hope that makes sense.

I'd cut both enchantments and put in a Preordain and Mana Leak / Negate. More importantly though, you could use another solid boardwipe or two. Obviously Damnation is the need here, but if you don't have one, Sudden Demise, Black Sun's Zenith, or Bontu's Last Reckoning? Feels really important to have a couple of hard wipes to be able to Intuition.

Thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately Intuition and Necropotence are also banned in Leviathan. Fire Covenant, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip and Dack Fayden are great, I'm trying to find them to add to the deck. Land's you've mentioned are also good addition.
Today I've get a little bit depressed cause I've realised that all shock lands that I'm using can kill me during Worldgorger combo :( I didn't think about this before and no-one have noticed this. That's a shame cause I can't afford original dual lands now.
Beside of this shock lands misunderstood the Breya was great in 1v1 and 2v2. I have won most of the games, with ratio per FNM like 3 won, 1 lost. Most of the lost games was because of the flood. I feel like I'm running to many lands, maybe I could cut one or two.

I have no idea what Leviathan is all about... but,
I guess Necropotence is banned?
If you're missing a tutor you could use Intuition, it's alright for getting 3 of the same thing, and can sometimes set up salvagers-LED if you have a reanimation spell already. You can also try Dark Petition, which is a little slow, but is real good at setting up a mid/late-game doomsday.
I'd look to adding Fire Covenant and Dack Fayden, they're real good. I also really like JVP, which has already been mentioned. I don't really like Reanimate unless you have a stronger reanimation focus or some kind of combo with snapcaster or something.
You said you were playing this in a 2vs2 environment... how has that been?! I'm curious!

I really feel like Intuition and a few more tutors could easily make their place in here. Id say drop a few weaker cards and throw more tutors in like Demonic Tutor and Imperial Seal. Probably swap Faithless Looting for your other storm card Grapeshot. You might also think about throwing Reliquary Tower in there
