BG Constrictor Problems

So, the night of M19 before prerelease, for constructed I ran an Esper Control Deck nearly outfitted with everything. I had gone 3-0 with either 2-0 or 1-0 wins for the first 3/4 rounds but the last matchup was BG Constrictor. I did fine first match however my opponent ended me 2 after. I made 1 vital mistake and that was removing constrictors but how would I go about beating a deck such as GB?

its a little hard to tell what you mean by making "1 vital mistake and that was removing constrictors" but I am going to assume that you mean you didn't remove the constrictor which is almost always going to get you killed. I think that the other big problem is that Green has quite a few good cards against control so game two is going to be very difficult, maybe its just a bad matchup, however, if you ever want to win I think you need to remove Constrictor first because it largely determines how good other cards are, you should save counterspells for cards like Jade light Ranger because jade light will draw cards and I think you should ignore Walking Balista, because it does not do all that much without constrictor, But if you do so you need a counter for Gearhulk.
