Seekers' Squire

Creature — Human Scout

When Seekers' Squire enters the battlefield, it explores. (Reveal the top card of your library. Put that card into your hand if it's a land. Otherwise, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature, then put the card back or put it into your graveyard.)

Seekers' Squire Discussion

Hey, consider 4x Seekers' Squire, 2x Dark Bargain, 2x Final Parting and 4x Cabal Stronghold? Squire, Bargain and Parting can put a potential Demon into the graveyard. This is the part of your strategy that's lacking here; when you play Liliana you want to be able to reanimate a Demon either Belzenlok or Razaketh this will give you some advantage. Consider 4x Belzenolk and 2-3x Razaketh more Demon goodness to reanimate? Belzenlok is your best Demon option for reanimation he's also only six mana so he can be cast in a game.

Stronghold is a reason to be playing mono black. Being able to first play a spell like Bargain or Parting getting a Demon into the graveyard and then playing Liliana all in the same turn. I quite like Parting with Stronghold because Parting can both put a Demon into the grave and tutor for Liliana.

I don't think you have enough creature fuel for Whisper. Even the tokens from Rite are not enough because you need to use the tokens to feed the Demon at your upkeep so you don't lose 6 life. You can't really do both feed the Demon and fuel Whisper.

Consider cutting 4x Dire Fleet Hoarder for 4x Squire? Cutting 2x Whisper for 2x Bargain? Cutting 2x Razaketh's Rite for 2x Parting and cutting 4x Swamp for 4x Stronghold?

Good luck with your deck.

I see. Well there's only one way to make it work 3 colors and that's lands that rotate. But if your going for sub par I'd probably cut -3 Drowned Catacomb and -1 Seekers' Squire for +3 Fetid Pools and +1 Hinterland Harbor. Catacomb is generally coming into play tapped as is. Might as well smooth out the mana base, provide consistent land drops, and still have a late game option to cycle flooding. Plus another blue mana seems needed. Nice job!

I run a similar deck, Perhaps you want to consider replacing Seekers' Squire, you already have 6 spell at two mana cost and you want to run both of them much more than squire.

Also if you plan to play any artifact other than gearhulks/panharm/throne you should remove the madcap, you don't want to hit a scrap trawler or a filigree with it.

Try running Cataclysmic Gearhulk for the decks that goes wide.

I really like this deck and how it uses explore. Very fun to play. I have found in my own playing that I like Seekers' Squire better than Tomb Robber, but that's just me.

I can see a lot of issues with this deck.

I'm not surprised that you are being overrun by Aggro decks. You don't have much of an early game. Just lots of early Creatures that aren't particularly effective, and hardly any removal.

Fatal Push should be four copies.

You are in some of the best colours here, and your spells should reflect that.

Things like Essence Scatter, and Thopter Arrest will slow your Aggro Opponents down.

Put Fumigate in the Sideboard rather than Bontu's Last Reckoning.

Take out all but two Gate to the Afterlife and put at least another two God-Pharaoh's Gift in the deck.

If you only have one God-Pharaoh's Gift then all your Opponent has to do is put it in your Graveyard, then Exile your Graveyard, and you can kiss that sucker goodbye.

With so many copies of Abrade, and so much Graveyard hate running around, that isn't hard to do.

Some copies of Refurbish would also help.

I'd like to see Dusk Legion Zealot replaced with the woefully underused Metalspinner's Puzzleknot. It gives better draw options, and you can sac it to turn Revolt on for Fatal Push.

I don't think Seekers' Squire or Trophy Mage are that good. You need less Creatures in a Gift deck. Replace them with removal, or just plain old counter spells like Disallow.

I do understand that you are using Creatures that are nice for God-Pharaoh's Gift to bring back from the Graveyard, but if you run out of time to cast the Gift, they won't be very effective.

You need more Non-Creature spells to let you make it to the late game.

Hey magicsheep, thanks for your comment!

Seekers' Squire is usually a 2/3 about 60% of the time, and if not, gives me the ability to either toss a creature I don't need into the graveyard or to hold it at the top in order to draw it the next turn, or thins my deck by immediately drawing me a land. This also lets me hold my ground against aggro while I dig for Gate to the Afterlife (which in turn will result in God-Pharaoh's Gift being played). Refurbish only does something if God-Pharaoh's Gift flies into the graveyard, which would have meant that I have it in my hand... 1/30 chance. It's a redundant card if God-Pharaoh's Gift isn't in the graveyard. However, I understand that it might work in a deck with rapid digging (i.e. Strategic Planning, Chart a Course ), but that's not the flavour of this specific Esper Gift!

Vraska's Contempt and Hour of Glory are fine replacements for Lost Legacy. It's a slightly budget deck (as shown with the lack of The Scarab God ) and Vraska's Contempt is quite expensive. Good insight!

Negate and Spell Pierce might sound interchangeable, but since you're fighting against Control (when you sub in Negate), you rarely want to allow the opponent to have a leeway out by paying excess mana (which is typical of Control to play their spells on your turn).

What about Vraska's Contempt or Hour of Glory? Lost Legacy is effective, but against some decks that have different indestructible creatures, I always use one of each for removal. Also, here's the strategy of most Gift decks: Use Minister of Inquiries to get a God-Pharoah's Gift into your graveyard, then use 4 mana to use Refurbish. 4 Refurbish are essential, and also you should probably add a Spell Pierce to defend your artifacts from removal. Remove Seekers' Squire, because you're not running an explore deck and Dusk Legion Zealot is a lot better. Great deck Twence! (You might want to put this deck under the hub "Esper" :)

I look forward to seeing (if) any changes. I have my own Esper deck, maybe I'll try this out at FNM and get back to you.

Vona's Hunger could be better than doom blade or unlicensed disintegration.

Swords to Plowshares might be able to fit in on the budget

Custodi Soulbinders could be fun to swing out on a full board

Magmasaur repeatable board wipe?

Seekers' Squire could explore for value

Banewhip Punisher is repeatable creature kill

Emissary of Sunrise probably to expensive CMC, but i think i like explore in your deck

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden most of your creatures have 2 power, this seems great!

Herald of Leshrac if you wanna be mean, but funny at the same time!

Solemn Recruit could get big fast

Taurean Mauler could get big fast

Vampire Hexmage planswalker hate

Rally the Ancestors could be clever. get your combo into the grave, play this and win!

Mask of Memory help filter your draws

I wanna re-suggest Key to the City and Vampiric Rites. card draw is good

Dauthi Mindripper might be better than delirium skeins

Maybe cut

drana, liberator of malakir for budget reasons
