I'll pick up the Magister Sphinx, it seems really strong when used properly. Gisela is a little slow. Are any of the bringers any good?

Phage the Untouchable!!!!!!!!...Or not...

Sun Titan and his titan buddies are pretty good.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Magister Sphinx, and The Mimeoplasm come to my mind for recursion targets.

If it was a playgroup call to eliminate Magister Sphinx then that's totally fine. I just believe that steel wind sphinx is taking up a slot that could be better filled. Some other big threats you may want to consider would be:

There are a few cards I'd like to call into question.

And there are a few cards I think you should really consider:

I tried to avoid recommending anything super expensive but I believe that any of these cards would slot right into your deck.

I have noticed that this is the ONLY planeswalker that people let go off for their ultimate. Steel Golem is hilarious.

Here is a few options you could try out Telepathy so you will know which opponent is the best option before hand, Retrofitter Foundry, Thopter Foundry, Sword of the Meek, Skullclamp, Hangarback Walker, and Sai, Master Thopterist for the combo insanity. Then of course Magister Sphinx and Sharuum the Hegemon because they're just too powerful to pass up.

hi Daggerfella,

I see.

You can go aggro control. Most of the creatures do hurt (5 power) with effective etb effect/s. Flickering them reuses their etb and give pseudo vigilance.

I will raise a disclaimer that esper tends to run "good stuff" because, well, there are good spells that have little to no alternates.

From the creature list: consider keeping

--removal Angel of Despair

Ashen Rider

Lavinia of the Tenth

Reflector Mage

--draw Sphinx of Uthuun




--value Arbiter of the Ideal Brago, King Eternal Diluvian Primordial -> great when many spells in opponents' gy

Sepulchral Primordial -> another good one, getting creatures in opponents' gy

Magister Sphinx -> my bias. similar to Sorin Markov

Vela the Night-Clad -> could be a win con, when you flicker enough

Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign

Resolute Archangel

Sun Titan -> not sure if you have many 3cmc permanents, but usually great to have

--combo Deadeye Navigator Peregrine Drake

maybeboard Boreas Charger

Chancellor of the Spires

Demonlord Belzenlok

Djinn of Wishes

Felidar Guardian

Jace's Mindseeker

Mistmeadow Witch

hope this helps.
