Description

So, this is my attempt at an Esper control. This deck has changed quite a bit and right now I'm sort of fixed on this version. I'm thinking of adding Nephalia Drownyard or another land that can help this deck out.

Lingering Souls, Entreat the Angels and Increasing Ambition round out my token base. With Talrand, Sky Summoner also helping out!

Drogskol Reaver for life gain; as well as Vault of the Archangel for tokens.

Please let me know what you think!!

I have a few Intangible Virtue 's and i've been thinking of adding them but I might put more Talrand, Sky Summoner 's in place of the Evil Twin s, so Feeling of Dread would be a lot more helpful in that case.

Hmm, this deck is good (albeit expensive) but the card quantities are bad. Let me explain. Note that all my examples are from your strategy-

4 Of's

You should only have 4 Of a card if...

-it is a necessity to the strategy

-it is something you don't mind having 3 of in your hand at once

-the more copies of it, the better it gets

-see Lingering Souls

3 Of's

You should only have 3 Of a card if...

-using just one is enough for you to still win

-it contribute to the strategy, but isn't a necessity

-it is subject to the "Legendary Rule," which I assume your familiar with

-see Talrand, Sky Summoner

2 Of's

2 is actually a terrible number, as the chances of drawing it are garbage compared to the other numbers, so it is a quantity to be avoided unless...

-it is a card so similar to the 3 Of's or 4 Of's that it's basically a copy

-see 3x Dissipate s + 2x Syncopate s

1 Of's

You should only have 1 Of a card if...

-it isn't a necessity to the plan, but if it gets out it's a game stopper

-see Drogskol Reaver

With this in mind adjust your deck's card quantities to specs. Have fun reconstructing!!

Stab Wound is much less damge then Intangible Virtue in adition to teh fact that you can block with those creatures 2 i would sideboard stab wounds against special decks where you got rly good targets

Evolving wilds but no basic lands?

Syncopate is awfull. If you spend 1 for X, Mana Leak is strictly better. If you spend more than 1, Calculated Dismissal, Hinder and Render Silent are far better. The guy who told you to add them is clueless.

Look up "esper draw-go" for ideas. With that said:

+Esper Charm

+Anguished Unmaking

+Countersquall

Consider Ancestral Vision

Idk if you are not using fetch lands like Flooded Strand for budget, but they can fetch shock lands like Watery Grave in addition to basics. Using fetches with about 2x basics each color and only 1-2 of shock lands lets you choose what you need in the moment. Consider throwing in fastlands like Seachrome Coast instead of cut shock lands.

Syncopate is great not for its raw power, but its versatility. In the early game you can usually have x=1 and counter whatever you need. In the late game it's still good, unlike mana leak, because you can still have x be big enough to counter whatever you need.
