The basic idea for this deck is to prevent damage and keep the board clear for long enough to make Myth Realized, Luminarch Ascension and Thing in the Ice  Flip able to kill off your opponent. Here is a card by card description for each category in the decklist: Show

HAZE (Prevent damage/make those planeswalkers worth it!):

Dawn Charm: Prevents damage in a pinch, can also counter the pesky burn spells that mess with Luminarch Ascension or regenerate Myth Realized and Thing in the Ice  Flip when needed.

Ethereal Haze: Prevents damage in a pinch.

Holy Day: Prevents damage in a pinch.

Silence: Nice card early game when you don't have one of your win conditions, or late game after an opponent just drew a bunch of cards. (can be combined with Isochron Scepter to lock an opponent out if that is where you would like to take the deck)

BOARD WIPE (Pretty self explanatory. Get rid of all opposing creatures, not too detrimental to your own creatures if you play them right):

Supreme Verdict: 3 words, CAN'T BE COUNTERED!

Wrath of God: Takes care of regeneration.

Path to Exile: Best modern legal single creature removal spell.

Tamiyo, the Moon Sage: +1 "super taps" a creature or a vulnerable land, really anything that could be usefull.

Cryptic Command: Ultimate control multi-tool, can tap all creatures and/or return one to its owner's hand.

CANTRIP (Because card draw is awesome!):

Serum Visions: My personal favorite one drop for card draw, lets me sift through dead cards.

Remand: Delays your opponent and draws a card.

Dictate of Kruphix: Can be worth giving your opponent extra cards to get to find what you're looking for faster.

Narset Transcendent: Draws me an extra card most turns, and the ultimate effect destroys creature-light decks.

Tamiyo, the Moon Sage: Can be great for card advantage late game right before a well timed board wipe.

Cryptic Command: Ultimate control multi-tool, I can use any of the effects and draw a card.

Sphinx's Revelation: Very helpful as the games draw longer to help stay relevant.


Elixir of Immortality Because this is a control deck and it draws games out very long sometimes, so extra life and a never-ending library is very useful!

Sphinx's Revelation: Great for card advantage and life.

FOR THE WIN! (Got to have a way to win right?):

Luminarch Ascension: It's usually pretty easy to escape 4 turns with no damage taken thanks to our hazy cards.

Myth Realized: No brainer given that ALL the cards except for Thing in the Ice  Flip are non-creatures.

Thing in the Ice  Flip: Sturdy defender for and board wipe/beater all in one after just four spells? Hell Yes!

Hope you enjoy this deck, feel free to leave any feedback/tips in the comments, and don't forget to +1 if you like it!

I see you have gifts in your sb, I run an esper gifts deck and thought I drop a few unsolicited tips-
Noxious Revival- great for piles when/ if you can't do the unburial.
I always suggest adding a snow covered basics as your second basic if your running more than one of a type. It isn't that expensive and doesn't cost a slot for a minor possible advantage if you need to gift for lands (deck thinning or blood moons) But I'll admit it has only came up a few times but those times it did I was glad to have it.
I would also change the second wrath of got to a Day of Judgment so you can gifts for a set of wraths

Nice deck, Made something really similar in simic colors.

Have you considered Turn Aside or Spell Pierce or Rebuff the Wicked, kinda good to keep the things alive. but sadly kind of useless for anything else.
