I recently posted a write-up of my Esper Control list after a 9th place finish at the SCG Classic in Milwaukee. I haven’t had an opportunity to take the deck to a larger event since the SCG but continue to find success with it locally. I’ve gotten a lot of feedback regarding this deck’s ability to close out games vs. combo decks and its potency in the Humans match-up. I have no concerns on either front. Lingering Souls is a hell of a card and we often forget how aggressive four 1/1 fliers can be. Beyond that, this deck packs some of the greatest removal spells available to a Modern control pilot. I’ve never lost to Humans.
In the first three matches that I’ve recorded thus far, I’m faced with a few oddball decks that may not be the best measure of the current meta but do a fine job of demonstrating this deck’s general function. I’ll continue to capture games and add them to this post-please follow us on our Facebook page to stay up to date with new posts.
