Victim of Night Discussion

passimo on Ghoulcaller's dream

Hi Arthaiser, thanks a lot for your suggestions. I think you are right about the Merchant, but i love that card, and i'm not sure i'd be able to part from it! I'll test the deck anyway, so I can see how it would go without that card.

Thanks for letting me know your opinion about the Nameless Inversion/Ghoulcaller's Chant swap! I think i'll put it in. I was honestly thinking of replacing only 1 Victim of Night with it, because it costs exactly the same converted mana cost as the inversion, but i'm not so sure about it, also because it would be difficoult to find it in the deck. Should I remove also 1 Disfigure, in your opinion?

Viscera Seer and Bloodsoaked Champion are some other creatures that could work here. Depending on your meta, Victim of Night might be better than Go for the Throat too.

also, you were complaining about removal being expensive: Victim of Night, Malicious Affliction, and Tragic Slip are all cheep and playable

If I were you I would cut the Blue. It seems not as good as mono black zombies. I would also add some lords and one-drop zombies to speed up the deck. I would also remove the counters for more removal instead.

Suggestions for 1-drops:

Diregraf Ghoul, Dread Wanderer, and Gravecrawler


Lord of the Undead, Lord of the Accursed, Diregraf Captain(if you keep blue), Undead Warchief, and Death Baron

Some other good zombie-related cards:

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Unbreathing Horde, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Whip of Erebos, Liliana, Death's Majesty, and The Scarab God(again if you keep blue)


Nameless Inversion(It counts as a zombie card), Victim of Night, Ultimate Price, Smother, Doom Blade for budget options.

Cool deck though! Hope this helps!

Welcome to Esper Control :D I would recommend doing some google searches for esper control and esper midrange decks to get an idea of which cards work in this colour scheme. Some initial thoughts looking at the deck are that without fetchlands to fuel your Logic Knots, you wont be able to play them on time. Maybe replace them with a couple Negates until you find some fetches. I also believe that your Jace should be a Jace, Architect of Thought because it will help you deal with tokens and small creatures.I believe that the Hedron Archives need to go. 6 mana to draw 2 cards is far to costly. As a budget alternative to Serum Visions, just play Think Twice, which is great here because its an Instant.Lastly, you need some proper spot removal. The reason that cards like Path to Exile and Fatal Push are so great in this format is because of their low CMC. Never//Return is going to be played too late in the game to save you from aggressive decks. Consider alternatives like Go for the Throat or Victim of Night. Same situation with your board wrath card Fumigate, you really want to be able to play a wrath on turn 4 so if you can a hold of a few copies of Wrath of God or Supreme Verdict then do so.

Make sure you take a look at some of the other Esper variations out there as it will give you a feel what you need to survive until the late game when you can take over and play your win conditions. Control in general is super difficult to play in Modern as you need to know opponents decks as well as you know your own in order to determine what you need to counter, and what you can let through, however when you win a difficult match up it is very rewarding. Best of luck in your quest.

What I would do to reduce dependency is focus on the lifeloss side of things like in the Bloodburn deck I linked since it's typically more reliable than mill.

One idea may be to throw in Archive Trap and some Ghost Quarters as a finisher. 13 life loss with the Guildmage or 26 with Bloodchief. I run Ghost Quarters just for the ability to trigger a graveyard hit when I want so they won't be a dead card.

If possible I'd toss doom blades for Fatal Push or Victim of Night as a budget option.
