Pendrell Mists Discussion

I don't have many aggro decks to my table, but i saw someone objecting how would you remain alive so, more for them than for you, here it is a little list of things that could be use for protection: the more renowed Ghostly Prison , Propaganda and Ensnaring Bridge , or the less known Koskun Falls , Crawlspace , Web of Inertia , Pendrell Mists , No Mercy . So, aggro it's not really a problem for Esper, including all wraths that the combination have.
Anyway, i'll surely build this up with a couple of changes (including Soothsaying ) and i'll let you know how it goes.

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:
Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.
Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

"Group hate" isn't as well defined to me as it seems to be to you. Resource denial such as stax and MLD are only fun to play against if you are prepared for them. Most casual tables I have sat down at are not prepared. Once a meta shift happens and people are prepared I have noticed these players often complain about being "hated out". I'm not sure they are looking out for everyone's enjoyment by providing a challenge so much as trying to pubstomp.
On the other hand, taxation and "death by a thousand cuts" group hate provides a challenge that you can confront in-game instead of during deck building. Kataki, War's Wage , Pendrell Mists , and Spelltithe Enforcer require you to prioritize mana usage or permanent importance, but don't stop the game dead if not immediately answered.
Group hug I put on a level with the second category. Though I prioritize getting rid of hug pieces much higher than other people do. I often destroy hug pieces before the end of my next turn because they are horrible disadvantage. Every round a Howling Mine is out is 2 cards of disadvantage in a 4 player game.

Hey thanks, Bloodsucker1211! I didn't even know people were trying to play aristocrats with Rayami. First of the Fallen ...because Rayami stops creatures from having death triggers. I thought aristocrats tried to capitalize on those triggers with Blood Artist and the like?
I wish I still had my Tabernacle, and I think the enchantment you're thinking of is Pendrell Mists . Great suggestion, and I have that noted!
I was thinking we could take advantage of some of the morph creatures with keywords. You pay to play the creature face down, and if that creature dies while Rayami is out it'll be exiled face up with a blood counter.
PS Nice username to go with Rayami!

@Ilnez twister, workshop, and tabernacle can all be replaced with Echo of Eons , a basic or another simple mana rock, and Pendrell Mists if you're looking for budget cards with similar effects. You can check out my budget build for 2500$ that only cuts those cards in replacement of the cards i just mention. Bear in mind I've yet to touch those lost to replace PEngine yet as I just havent has the time to edit 3 other lists.
@smurf800 while the 2 arent necessary 1 is...twister, or the budget version echo of eons, is actually a win condition of the deck. In the primer it list how we can assemble a twister loop to cast certain spells over and over if we dont have access to another win condition. Twister loops are commonly used in a large variety of cedh list as generally they are difficult to stop once they get going...narset just helps in this regard since it leaves our opponents handless while we play solitaire.

I'll admit this is not exactly a "budget friendly" build, but it wasn't always that way. There are definite easy swaps and removing 3-4 cards should save thousands of $.
The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale - Its honestly worth the money, but replaceable. While it being a land is why its an amazing play, there is Pendrell Mists to replace the effect. Yes Tabernacle doesn't usually tap for mana but I often times have Urborg out to make it produce black, so be prepared to up the land count as well.
Invoke Prejudice - It is really good and often times people have never played against it so it catching people off guard makes a big shift in play. But the (the only card in the game with that mana cost BTW) is really rough to cast without a really solid mana base (Proper fecthes/duals and moxen are $$$$) BUT... there is a great alternative with Ward of Bones . The colorless helps make up for the fact that it costs one more mana but it also means they can't play more lands than you making up for another expensive card, Land Equilibrium .
All three cards are Legends Rares, of which there are only about 17k making them more rare than any one of the power nine by comparison so another justification for the high price-tag. However, Legends was reprinted later in Italian and with a higher print run so sometimes you can find HP Italian at 1/3 the price if that helps. But also, with solid Enchantment/artifact creature hate, Copy Enchantment and Copy Artifact means for $10 you can have TWO of something! Works great on Greater Auramancy as well.
Another part of the big budget can be fixed by running cheaper versions. This also has Alpha/Beta Sol ring, Demonic Tutor, and Counterspell; Masterpiece Urborg, Stifle, and Scroll Rack etc. Cheaper versions should easily save a lot. Also, Timetwister can be replaced obviously. The only place I'd say NOT to skimp is the mana base. it runs a very low land count but also has all the best mana rocks. So be prepared to add more lands or alternative ramp.
As far as Counter spells? Yeah, too many are bad IMO. Especially on Isochron Scepter. Your counter spells should be just to make sure you win or someone else doesn't ruin you. Saving a GOOD counter spell for someones Cyclonic Rift, or having one to make sure your win con resolves is more important.. and honestly, more fun to play both with and against. Instead of more "No!" in the deck that you'll just be holding in hand... Play more effects that work WITH your deck. Instead of playing Humility and holding onto a Counterspell , play another card like Torpor Orb or Portcullis and make THEM have more to play around! Let them destroy it and then bring back with Replenish or Brought Back instead. Brought back is a nice way to bring back two lands after playing lotus vale or cracking two fetches, grabbing duals, then bringing back the fetches to play. THAT kind of flexibility makes your deck BETTER and still serves as a proper response.
Let me know if you put a decklist together, I'd love to see how you run it.
