The Purge (Developing Competitive)

Modern Competitive Control W/U (Azorius)



Well boys, here we go again. Another big shift. First it was from Jeskai to Esper, and then now here we are at UW. The main reason for this switch is that I am so excited that there is a Tier One/Two Control deck. I've been extensively testing this deck throughout the past couple of months, and it's been putting up excellent results. It's based off of MTGO's bennyhillz and his Tap-Out style of UW, so credit goes to him for this list. I'd also like to thank Joarthus, he's an amazing UW player and streamer, and he has helped me improve so much as a player. I will continue to practice Esper, as it is going to be another couple years before I feel comfortable playing that deck. If you guys wanna see my Control list, here it is.

And, last but not least, I'd like to thank the entire TappedOut community for helping me and supporting me throughout this past year or so. You guys are all so amazing, but I'd like to thank 2 users in particular.

TheAnnihilator is an amazing Esper player, I totally recommend him for any Esper questions, as well as Control in general. He's been a big mentor to me in developing my skill at playing Control decks. Seriously, this guy is amazing.

Here's his Esper Control list:

cplvela0811 has been supporting me from the start of my Control decks here on TappedOut. Although he doesn't play Control, his kind words and valuable insights are why I'm here today. I would never have made it without you, bud.

Love it! Although I think you should Drop a single Verdict for a WoG to dodge surgical and whatnot. Also this build is begging for a Batterskull

How do you feel with the 3 Tec Edge / 1 GQ split vs. 2/2? Why not play 1 Logic Knot over the 3rd Leak? Is the Glimmer better than just the 4th Cryptic?

How do you feel about your Burn game 1, and would you consider Spell Queller over Clique? Queller tagging setup spells has been amazing for me, since it's miles better than Clique vs. Burn and aggro in general.

Imo. I believe Quarter is better with the format being so fast. That most decks do not have 4 lands in play by the end of the game. Also spell queller is better than clique in a vacuum. Also the glimmer seems weird seeing 4 cards is cool and all but nothing matches the power of cryptic command. Lastly Logic Knot is really good right now it is most of the time UU exile one card counter spell. Everyone in modern is tapping out on turn 2 3, 4, where logic knot is best but it also has great late game application

I had to cancel at the last moment because of a family obligation:(

This deck needs Storm Crow. It gets through with its over powered flying ability, and it can't be killed by Razor Boomerang either. It's also a great two drop.

@Jafjaf5 I think Mist Raven fits much better. If we're talking about Un-Modern, Carnivorous Death-Parrot is good too.

I agree completely. You need to save a kill spell to deal with that guy.

I really like this. I'm drinking the UWx Control Kool aid by the gallon. One question, why only one Ghost Quarter? I feel like Tron would outpace Tectonic Edge.

Looking beautiful as always. You must be having so much fun with 3x Cryptics. I wanted to play it as a 2x of in Sultai.

@SlimJim83: Yeah, I drink a LOT of that Kool Aid :) I think that TecEdge gives us better percentages against Titanshift, but I like the one GQ because it can help with mana fixing, and on the off-chance that we need to catch them early

@cplvela0811: Thanks. This 75 has never been more fun. I really wanna play 4 Cryptic, but it's unrealistic. I like your Sultai list BTW.
