Death is a New Beginning (Esper Midrange)

Modern Competitive Midrange Reanimator W/U/B (Esper)




Welcome to Esper Midrange

Currently Looking for a good 5 drop creature that I won't mind Unburial Ritesing.

The deck plays similarly to most midrange shells, but we utilize our ability to fill the graveyard quickly to give ourselves a more powerful endgame with Unburial Rites. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Iona, Shield of Emeria both have the potential to lock opponents entirely out of the game, while Lingering Souls and our delve threats provide us with a lot of powerful board presence.

Hedron Crab, Thought Scour and Search for Azcanta  Flip allow us to quickly fuel our delve threats, as well as search for our unearth cards, while Liliana of the Veil, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, and Collective Brutality provide better than average upside as we have a lot of cards that are great even when discarded.

Pack in a some of the best removal spells in the format with Path to Exile and Fatal Push, and Chart a Course to dig faster, and potentially discard unneeded cards, and you have a pretty powerful value engine that can goes bigger than most other midrange decks, and has some chance against combo with some luck.

I feel like this deck has the potential to be very competitive, it just needs some tuning. If you have any suggestions or comments, please leave them as this is my current project, and I am working toward building this deck. Also, if you like it, feel free to give it a +. It helps me get more exposure, and make the deck better.

Note: Please do not suggest Gifts Ungiven. That card is a build around and adding it to the deck makes an entirely different build.
