Nice I rly like it I would put in Dark Ritual just to help get you set up sooner and for some card draw I rly suggest Dread Presence as it is flexible with gaining life or drawing cards. and maybe some things like Sign in Blood which can get you cards but sometime be a rly funny finisher, or Treacherous Blessing as the life lost overtime is not that big of a deal. but overall is an interesting idea that I like because you are able to keep it budget

Pretty plain Esper Control list. Most of your cards are pretty low in power though.

Unsubstantiate is pretty weak counterspell/bounce. Saw It Coming is better 9/10 times.

Solve the Equation , The Birth of Meletis , Professor Onyx , Archmage Emeritus , even ECD (depending on the matchup) are all pretty slow. Esper lists in Standard right now have a lot of value packed into them. Most of them use Yorion, Sky Nomad as a companion and love to blink things like Omen of the Sea , Treacherous Blessing , ECD, and Sad Robot . Skyclave Apparition is usually pretty good too, as it removes things much earlier than other exile effects.

Speaking of removal, let's work on that. Murderous Rider is not a good rate anymore. Bloodchief's Thirst , Heartless Act , or Eliminate are the removal of choice usually, and Shadows' Verdict the sweeper.

I'd even probably take out the 4x Neutralize for some combination of Disdainful Stroke , Essence Scatter , and Negate .

With Strixhaven coming, I expect Elite Spellbinder to be a good addition to control. It blocks well and disrupts your opponent's curve.

In the sideboard, with the prevalence of control, 4x Mystical Dispute is a necessity. You'll also want something for the mono-red aggro matchup, probably more Shadows' Verdict s. Against mono-white aggro, you want Shadow's Verdicts and maybe some Ravenform . Shark Typhoon is also good in the control matchup (hint: you'll almost never cast it, but cycling can't be countered and gives you a card back). Disdainful Stroke should also add up to 4x between mainboard and sideboard, as the control deck of choice at the moment loves to run big spells. Unfortunately, this deck will fold to Dimir Rogues and I can't think of a sideboard plan that would change that. Their fish tactics are just too good against dedicated control decks.

Lotus Ramp Example List:

Example curve:

  • t1 land, Elvish Reclaimer

  • t2 land, sylvan scrying

  • t3 land, Kiora

  • t4 use Reclaimer to jam Lotus, untap lotus with Kiora, Pore over the pages and Vizer to sift through your deck a bunch of times until you can jam Pelakka wurm.

That is, of course, a rough draft.

Wishclaw Blink exmaple deck:

Plus some stuff, get to 80 cards, add Yorion in SB as companion, eventually win with token flood.

I want you to look at those too first-draft fairly optimized decks. Take a really good look. I want you to count the number of cards that are in both decks.

Now, I want you to do this exercise: guess how many cards in the lotus ramp deck can go in the wishclaw deck, and how many cards from the wishclaw deck can go in the lotus ramp deck.

Tell me your answer, and we'll see if you're right.

SaintFinni, this list has been working very well, I did go 3-0 at the first Kaldheim-legal standard tourney and took no game losses.

Hooded Blightfang is decent, but yes QBeast would be better overall as it is much more impactful for just 1 more mana. And I strictly play paper magic, I just don't really care for Arena, not nearly as much fun lol.

Doing that with Eidolon and the aura's will increase the removal package substantially but you will be watering down the core of the deck. Treacherous Blessing made huge impacts for me during the tourney and its just a single card on curve for a typical play-out of this deck, which makes it one of (if not the most) efficient ways to fill our hand back up in BG.

Call of the Death-Dweller over Treacherous Blessing then ditch Snakeskin Veil and add 4 lands. Then you are golden...for best of 1 on Arena at least. No in person Magic in my area yet so it's the only way I get to play.

Thank you for your thoughts! I'll explain my reasoning behind the three cards you mentioned:

  1. I initially had planned to build a mono black deck around Erebos, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel was a must at the time. I left it in this deck because I had more black cards in the deck than white (which might've changed).

  2. I thought Omen of the Dead would be a good card as 1 black mana can return a creature card from the graveyard, but the deck is enchantment heavy, so I reduced it from 4 to 2 copies and added Omen of the Sun.

  3. As for Treacherous Blessing, I was going to use it for card draw, and then it would be sacrificed to Doom Foretold.

I'll remove the 2 Gray Merchants from the main deck, and in their place add a 2nd Vito and a 4th Birth of Meletis (Cheap enchantment to sac to Doom Foretold) I'll remove the Omen of the Dead and add 2 more copies of Omen of the Sun in their place. Reduce Treacherous Blessing from 3 to 2 and add a 3rd copy of Bastion of Remembrance. I will modify the sideboard accordingly.

Most of the decks I play against are precons, but one friend of mine (who I haven't played MTG with in a while) used to run a dinosaur deck. Let me know what you think of my changes!!

Cool. I'm not that up-to-speed with standard (i pretty much exclusively play modern), so hopefully someone here can give you better advice than my questionable thoughts - but here's what I've noticed:

  • I don't think Gray Merchant of Asphodel is worth it in this deck. Normally he shines in decks where you're running mono-black, with a high devotion count to black... I don't see him doing more than around 3ish points of damage here, and I think you can fill this spot with a better card.

  • I also don't think Omen of the Dead is entirely worth it. Most of your creatures are indestructible, and those that aren't don't really need recursion. About the only card you'd want to recur would be Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose - and in that case, you'd be better-off just running more copies of that card.

  • How has Treacherous Blessing gone for you? It feels like it could be strong in situations where the game is about to end, but not so much if the game drags on. Maybe 2 copies works better than 3? But really, I have no idea.

The rest of the deck looks decent to me. I'd question the sideboard though - it seems to mostly have additional copies of what you already run maindeck. You'd be better off having sideboard cards that hate on the particular decks you play against.
