@TheRedGoat I really appreciate the input. This has given me some other cards to consider that could possibly streamline this a bit more. I was originally trying to make some sort of blink combo with
Call for Unity
so I didn't have to rely on creature destruction or exile. By telling me this gives me a better understanding of the card. I'm really bad about trying to find "hard control", I'm still used to pre-8th Edition control, compared to the more "soft control" that happens in the current state of the game.
- Revitalize over Blessed Alliance for the card draw, if it can be put on a stick.
- Sigil of the New Dawn should be put back into deck in the event of board wipes as well as Call for Unity .
- Bringing back Heliod, God of the Sun might not be a bad idea for the tokens and it synergies well with Sphere of Safety .
- Monastery Mentor and Leonin Warleader are other viable options due to Mentor of the Meek 's trigger allowing more card draw if mana is available.

Hey, I think a card that's going to be helpful for Esper Control in the beginnings of new Standard is Revitalize . Instant 3 life and draw a card is good when early on against lots of aggro. In my opinion the more spells you play that gain you life the better to grind your aggro opponents out giving you more time to set-up Teferi. Creature removal is important to have against aggro, but less so when the damage coming your way is burn.
There's no early game draw here, the earliest is Insight. When playing three colors with color requirements of , and early game draw can help to draw into the right dual lands.
Consider adding 4x Revitalize, cutting 2x Treasure Map and 2x Essence Scatter?
Good luck with your deck.

I'm not sure what role Revitalize serves but there are plenty of more impactful cards at this CMC: Negate , Remand , Arcane Denial are all cheap counters, 2 of which draw you a card; Go for the Throat , Dreadbore , Terminate are all decent removal.

I probably wouldn´t play Revitalize. There must be better options. :-)

Have you considered Boros Signet, Worn Powerstone and Gilded Lotus? Heartless Hidetsugu is game over if Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is out. Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods and True Conviction are great for beatdown. Boros Charm is really versatile in this deck. You can swap Take Vengeance for Swords to Plowshares. Sunforger is the greatest card in Boros and can grab any instant at 4 CMC or less. // It's good to run Command Tower, Battlefield Forge, Temple of Triumph, Needle Spires, Ancient Amphitheater, Boros Guildgate are good for mana fixing. Slayers' Stronghold, Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion and Rogue's Passage are good for combat tricks; Mistveil Plains brings recursion; Spinerock Knoll is great at cheating costs; Secluded Steppe and Forgotten Cave for card selection. // Revitalize, Lightning Helix, Demystify, Fountain of Renewal are subpar in this deck.

Hey, I noticed that other than Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, and Chromium, the Mutable, this is just a dimir control deck. While Teferi and Chromium are great cards, esper control is just really weak right now because it doesn't have the right lands. I would suggest converting this to dimir for now until the next ravnica set is released. You don't even need to make that many changes tbh, just find a way to add some Thought Erasures and Disinformation Campaign, maybe a Doom Whisperer or two and a one of The Eldest Reborn. If esper is what your set on, though, I think you could stand to add more white cards. Settle the Wreckage or Cleansing Nova are better than Ritual of Soot. I've seen Dawn of Hope be used as a control win-com before and it wasn't half bad. Ixalan's Binding is a must against other Teferi's (the sideboard would be fine). Seal Away is great against phoenixes and everything that doesn't like to stay dead. Lastly lots of people have been throwing a couple Revitalize in their control lists because aggro/midrange is just so damn strong rn. Hope I've been helpful, good luck!

The deck I saw running that scapeshift combo was UGW, he added white for the selesniya gate and Revitalize
