A Jeskai control list based around Outlaws' Merriment

I really slept on this card but after cracking two and testing around I've found that Merriment is surprisingly powerful, and have decided to make a control shell around it

Like any good control deck the goal here is to stall whatever our opponent is up to then grind them out with 1 or 2 Merriments in play giving constant sources of chip damage or blockers

Sideboard is where I'm the most shaky, it provides a good toolbox against whatever you might encounter but I haven't played enough Bo3 in Arena to really be set on it

In the Maybeboard Realm-Cloaked Giant could very easily go in over Time Wipe , still testing that
