Secure the Wastes Discussion

Chasmolinker thanks for the upvote!
So for field probably check lands
But this list is pretty differnt then most esper lists (and very experiential, ive only played like 10 games total with this threat package) which is why im not running allot of the draw go staples. It's moddled after a list from 2017 that got top 8 at gp kobe. The focus point of this deck is the card advantage from Painful Truths and then using a turn 2 Glory-Bound Initiate to mitigate the life loss. The rest of the deck is just designed to be as grindy and disruptive as possible. So it doesnt really want to hold mana for stuff like Sphinx's Revelation or Secure the Wastes and we're too reliant on our nonland creatures to play a mainboard board wipe (we should probably play two in the side but im really not worried about the side until after i finish buying it.)
Detention Sphere is really interesting though any thoughts on how to make room for it? And if a 3 mana removal is worth it in this set up?

However currently you should run Settle the Wreckage, as its GREAT against both hollow one, and boggles. And it doesn't eat all of your tokens.
P.s. If you splash for cards that make your deck faster at the price of loosing late game winning power (aka. inevitability) you are hardly creatign a control deck. Especially if you already started with a deck that should be called "gideon tribal midrange". I meant that if you are focusing on early turns with targeted discar that is 6x do nothing cards right there, true "draw-go" lists would beat decks built this way easily. By powerful late game cards i meant cards like Secure the Wastes or White Sun's Zenith - producing your win condition at the opponent's end step is significan't, you win at instant speed, hold up all the mana you may need on their turn, and can even wait till they tap out.)

If you are taking the deck esper, esper control is a really underappreciated deck in my opinion, then first and foremost I would pick up the card that makes esper so appealing in Esper Charm, it does virtually everything you want and is the real reason to go esper in my opinion.
Additionally I disagree with the above sentiments regarding Search for Azcanta in fact I would even consider upping it to 3, as I'm sure you know a control deck in modern these days is largely judged based on whether or not it has Search online, and recently seasoned control players such as Benjamin Nikolich have been championing 3 in the mainboard.
Also for sweepers I think Supreme Verdict is still the best option, its more flexible and most of your lands are already blue sources so it makes sense. I would aim for 3 since you have the lingering souls plan. Also I would cut 1 Tasigur for another Logic Knot though that stems from my strong control preference.
Overall, the list looks solid!
Good draws, Oloro

Go down 2 Captain of the Watch , it's a 6 drop, you're going to need more value early on.

For the sideboard, I'd cut out 2x Geist of Saint Traft and 1x Kor Firewalker for either 3x Leyline of Sanctity or 3x Timely Reinforcements, depending on your meta. Secure the Wastes could be good too.

One card came to mind that could be something to look into. Secure the Wastes. Nice little instant speed "oh crap i need a blocker(s) now" kinda card
