Not a lot of Esper aristocrat decks out there, so I thought I'd give it a shot and see if I could make one that works. Now that I've had the opportunity to play it, I love it!

There are 40+ spells in this deck that will generate Faerie tokens off Alela, tokens which get the +1/+0 buff from her since they fly. There's little reason not to attack if the skies are clear, but even better to use those tokens as sac fodder for various aristocrat staple effects that hurt the whole table.

This deck intends to use Alela's ability to generate tokens, and then sacrifice those tokens for card advantage. Eventually winning either by a combination of combat damage from flyers and out-valuing the table with death triggers, or getting a combo onto the table: Aetherflux Reservoir + Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top, or Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond/Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose. It helps that these are all great cards on their own, and most trigger Alela for a faerie token.
