Well...Here we go AGAIN. Time number four, and this time we've gone full circle. We're back on UWR, and this time it's a Tempo deck utilizing Geist of Saint Traft as it's primary wincon. The only issue is that I'm too broke to buy Scalding Tarn, but that'll be on the way. The reason I made this switch started at a PPTQ I attendd with UW Control and I ended up going 2-4, missing any sort of prizes by a mile. The deck just didn't feel right. So I took a break, played some Esper Control, and then I realized that I had an Open coming up that I wanted to go to, and I'd get flattened if I played Esper. I had seen Jonathan Rosum and Harlan Firer doing well on the SCG circuit with a Jeskai deck similar to this one, but Opt hadn't been released. Harlan just got a trophy with the deck, and Rosum has top8ed multiple times with the deck. I gave it a try, and I was hooked. The release of Opt has just made it better.

I'd like to give credit to a couple people who've helped me on my journey.

Nathan Quantanilla, or GreatNate on YouTube, has been putting out fantastic Geist content for years. He's really good at the deck, shoutout to him.

axman on MTGSalvation is also a veteran with Jeskai Tempo, and his tournament reports and careful answers to my stupid questions are one of the reasons I'm here today.

TheAnnihilator is a true friend. Although he despises Jeskai, he's really friggin good at any deck he plays, especially with Control. His suggestions and corrections are one of the reasons I'm such a good Magic player. Thanks for all you do, bud.

cplvela0811, although he doesn't play Control, gives good suggestions, compliments, and criticism to every deck I put up here. If you need some help with deck-building, and especially the Sultai colors, he's definitely your dude. Thanks so much for the work you've put into my piles, man. I wouldn't have made it without you.

And last but not least, I'd like to thank the TappedOut and MTGSalvation communities, and the countless but no less appreciated users who helped me to my goal. You guys are amazing.
