Quote from Colt47 »Hi all, I'm thinking of going for this archetype come rotation due to the powerful engine and win conditions still staying for a good while.
I do have a few questions on the build, though as far as numbers. I've heard nothing but praises for Search for Azcanta, but many builds run only two main. Is it the lack of graveyard payoffs and the need to filter the top deck that makes it a bad choice to drop early? Also, what top end would work well in a world without gearhulks? I was thinking the 5/6 flier might be good since it can swing into Lyra and survive Fight with fire. It also can be cheated out early with an artifact like Sentinel totem.
Typing on phone so card tags are not working. Am talking about the dominaria legendary blue genie.

Uh, I wouldn't worry about esper becoming unplayable. It has the best removal in the format and synergy based strategies are horrible against targeted discard. The biggest losses are The Scarab God and Torrential Gearhulk, which have had more than enough time in the sun. We got lots of stuff that hasn't gotten a chance to see play yet that will work well in a smaller pool.
