The Eldest Reborn Discussion

My two decks on Arena right now are Ux Control and GB, so I empathize with you(: control destroys me too. But I’ve also been crushed playing control against BG decks, haha.
My advice would be to decrease just a little of your MB discard (Rumors and Divest in particular) in favor of a tad more aggression. Slam a Tyrant, Duress to clear out opposing Settles, and you’ve got the late game covered, but you need to pressure the control player to force them to spend resources. Paired with card advantage from the SB, that would beat any of my control builds right now(:
For card advantage, Arguel's Blood Fast Flip is great as a 1/2-of main. Dryad Greenseeker works in some lists. I love The Eldest Reborn to kill their finishers and Teferis, and also to recur any Tyrants they killed.
Also, splashing Banefire might be an option?
That’s all I got(: but I’ll keep thinking. Best of luck!

I feel like the deck could use some more mill, and it's also lacking recursion. 2 World Shaper and 2 The Eldest Reborn might be worth running if you replace Golgari Raiders. Raiders needs at least 4 creatures in the bin to be worth playing for 4 mana, so it can be a dead card at times.
I think Molderhulk would be a decent replacement for Charnel Troll, since it can easily be a 2 or 3 mana 6/6 without the downside of exiling creatures every upkeep and making your Undergrowth effects weaker.

Hi, nice deck!
Ignore this lower part if you like the deck the way it is
you could splash blue and black for Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip and then you get access to cards like The Eldest Reborn and some nice sideboard options. With the amount of removal in your deck right now niv mizzet seems like it could destroy some people if you get to untap with it.

Disinformation Campaign feels too much like a build around to me, the edict on Plaguecrafter is just extra removal that I can rebuy with The Eldest Reborn or Connive / Concoct, especially with Blood Operative being my surveil focus since you can sac it, play Thought Erasure and get him back. I do think azcanta should come out, I forgot to swap it since this was control to start with, Thief of Sanity might take the maindeck spots for it. I had freebooter but it doesn't line up with the sweepers so I cut it. Thanks the suggestions!

Reclamation Sage is a permanent card that you can bring back over and over! Play at least 1 Mainboard!
Prodigious Growth is an awesome Permanent card that you can bring back over and over!
Torgaar, Famine Incarnate has a powerful ETB that you can use to reset your life, OR shut lifegain decks up!
In Bolas's Clutches another permanent that you might want to return from the grave!

Actually, I really do want 4 Assassin's Trophy. There are so many problem cards that are non-creature permanents in standard (Ixalan's Binding and the like, all the planeswalkers that Wizards is shoving down our throats, Search for Azcanta Flip, Legion's Landing Flip, The Eldest Reborn and other sagas, Dawn of Hope, etc.). Also, Thud seems okay, but without a phoenix on the battlefield and a guarantee my opponent doesn't have removal, I will likely never play it over Shock or Lightning Strike. Thanks for the suggestion though CHAREDot9!

Hey, I think you really need Hallowed Fountain if you want to play white as anything other than a splash for Teferi and Chromium with current Esper. I think a true current playable Esper manabase can't support . The only current dual land option for Esper to get more white sources is Meandering River, it's not a attractive option and if you play River you might as well just play Azorius. Evolving Wilds is another option and it's honestly better than River because it at least puts a card into your graveyard to help to flip Search. Another potential way to help the manabase situation is playing Opt or Anticipate. These cards can help to find white lands, but you don't really want to have to play them as they take spots from other cards. If you're a fan of Settle, Lyra, Nova for control then consider Azorius or Jeskai as both these color combinations can support cards.
Here you're trying to make , and , but the manabase can't support all these color requirements. The manabase here is very good right now for only splashing white for Teferi and Chromium (11 sources of white). My advice is consider decreasing white (cutting Settle, Lyra, Nova and one Plains) to consistently draw more black and blue cards which the manabase can more easily support. Consistency with the manabase is key for control. I suggest more black and blue to consistently be able to cast on curve Sinister Sabotage and Vraska's Contempt. Consider 3x Ritual of Soot? Aggro and tokens (go wide strategies) are hard matchups for control because you can't afford to only one for one creatures with removal and counters, but Soot can be a main deck answer to these problems.
For the sideboard I think you can add some more spice :) Consider 3x Thief of Sanity? It can be a busted creature for control who demands an answer in any nonaggro or nonGolgari graveyard recursion matchups. Consider 1 ofs Arguel's Blood Fast Flip and The Eldest Reborn? Both are very good value cards for control.
Good luck with your deck.
