tlhunter07 Control Freak
Ancestral Vision is a 3x sideboard card when control and grindy decks are prevalent. It has an incredibly high variance which makes it an unreliable card draw engine.

Hey man sorry for the late reply.. Been extremely busy. Not really looking for the Ancestral's priority wise. Trying to focus on finishing off my EDH deck (Cards left listed on my page). So if you get anything I need for it let me know.

Uh... Is your deck private, or did you delete it after sending the link to it to me?

@Happymaster19: I like Big Gideon, and he's even better now that he contributes towards Gideon of the Trials and his emblem. The problem is, Elspeth is just so much better than Gideon that I'm including her for now. But, as I said in an earlier post, I haven't tested the deck very much because I'm currently in Germany visiting friends. My dad hasn't been around for the past month, and his computer has Cockatrice on it and he's the one who plays paper MTG, so I've played for about 10 hours total in the past coupla weeks.
Gideon Jura is definitely an option though.

@TheAnnihilator: I switched competitively from Esper to UW. I think that UW is just better positioned than Esper, and I'll still be playing Esper at FNMs and online. Jace is absolutely insane, he helps a lot with aggro matchups, and 2 Jace is standard in most builds. I usually play him to help me dig for an answer, but I haven't tested the deck very much because I'm currently in Germany visiting friends. My dad hasn't been around for the past month, and his computer has Cockatrice on it and he's the one who plays paper MTG, so I've played for about 10 hours total in the past coupla weeks. I'm currently testing another Cryptic in place of a land/TT, but I've really gotten used to 26 lands, and it helps the consistency of the deck.
@cplvela0811: I don't like Gideon because his ult is completely irrelevant (most of the time). Actually rethinking it, it could grow our PWs when we're swinging for the kill, but if I'm including a bid Gideon it'll be Gideon Jura.
Thanks to both of you, you guys have been instrumental to the development of this deck. (and cplvela0811, I finally included an Eslpeth in one of my builds LOL)

Eh, I could see him in the right meta. The issue is that he dies to Kommand, and one of the strengths of Esper is how it makes all of the opponent's removal dead in hand.

Why no Thoughtseize? I know you mentioned on MTGS trying to beat Burn and Company more than Combo, but Thoughtseize is something that should be in every Esper SB. I may try Stroke, I'm liking it when I think about it.

TheAlexGnan, Corey released a CFB article and video series about a new Grixis brew of his called Blue Jund, if you're feeling disappointed in Control I suggest you give it a shot.
TBH I'm thinking about building it myself, all I really need is 4 Tarns and a set of JVPs along with a few Fulminator Mages. Hope you like it!

Do you think that Ancestral Vision has a place in Jeskai Control? I'm thinking more of my straight-out Control type build. Thanks!

Hot damn, congrats on 100 upvotes! Do an update, as is customary :) Keep on doing what you do, it sure as hell has been working for you!

1) You should make it Modern :)
2) I think that 3 Nahiri is too low, and I"m not sure about Illuminations.
I like otherwise tho, +1
