Duress is an all-star against control in all formats. You will see a lot of decks running between 3-4. I just chose not to. There are jump-start cards in the format. Duress helps nabs boardwipes, counterspells, removal, and PW's. Vess I moved into the main deck because of it's solid body. Do NOT feel the need to kick it. Although it is a great top deck for that reason, a 4 mana 4/5 is great on it's own. Especially being Legendary as it dodges Cast Down. Menace is a very real bonus as well. Golden Demise comes in against golgari, tokens, and the white-red & bores aggro. Control start taking out creature removal. Against the normal control decks, take out Moment of Craving and Seal Away to begin with. There's a lot of stuff that helps against the control MU. Just be carful of a Lyra Dawnbringer in from the SB. Vivien Reid helps with that along with getting card advantage going. Perhaps cutting Impulse for Autumn or Bloodfast as life total isn't threatened as often by control players. But watch out for Fight with Fire kicked or Banefire with Azor's Gateway  Flip. Apologies if there was something I didn't get to! Against aggro is where sweepers come in in place of all the 1 for 1 removal, but keep some so you have time to get to sweepers. The 8 2 drops w/ first strike are great against super aggro decks. Hope this helped!
