    So are you guys also on an 8 charm list? Im curious, because mainly I really want to know how something like rabbit's list would fair.


    I'm playing quasi-Draw Go version with 0 Esper Charms. I replaced some with new 3 mana planeswalkers at one point. Now, I've replaced with them 2 Force of Negation and 2 Archmage's Charm. I still have two Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and two Jace, the Mind Sculptor as my win cons. As SanityLost said, the biggest problem is actually just finishing the game. I tend to play very fast and somewhat more aggressive than I should in games 2 and 3 just to finish the match on time. That said, you have all the tools. It's really a matter of being familiar enough with your own list to figure out your specific plan of attack.

    I've either been very lucky against Tron or we have a good matchup against them. I'm playing with 2 Big Teferi and 2 Jace though. Game 1 is atrocious. Games 2 and 3 seem to be a breeze though. I still feel like I've been lucky thus far though.

    Discord. I believe FlyingDelver or one of his mods has to put an invite link out?

    I'm wrong. https://discord.gg/znSgCc

    But why Search for Azcanta? I feel like Narset, Parter of Veils took that card out back to put it down like old yeller.

    How well does your deck handle Humans?

    I think the days of Search for Azcanta are over with the printing of Narset. Maybe as a one of, but the floor on Narset is just so much better than SFA


    I'm not sure there's many who would disagree.

    I'm curious if what y'all would think of for an updated Jeskai control list. Lightning Bolt is starting to look really appealing again, but it's been so long since I played, I'm not sure I'd trust anything I would put together. I've been playing a lot of Esper control, but that deck doesn't fit my play style. You don't really ever get to turn the corner and go on offense.

    Another question for the Esperites: Have any of you considered adding some number of Thoughtseize to the main deck? If it's bad (as I assume most will say), why is it bad?

    Why am I the only one who's not super impressed with Blast Zone? It's so inefficient to kill anything that doesn't have 1-CMC

    I think Jeskai isn't really popular now because we got Narset and little Teferi taking up a bunch of slots, and it's tough to fit in the red cards. However having bolt and helix to deal with walkers is of course a huge boon. The most relevant percentage loss of jeskai over UW is vs tron.

    If I'd go to a large tournament expecting a lot of UW and little tron, I'd sleeve jeskai I think.


    Lightning Bolt still isn't that good right now though. Slightly better than recent months, but not that good either.

    Then what is your plan against Tron and Valakut?


    Surgical Extraction and Field/counterspells.


    That only delays them. It doesn't kill them. So how do you kill them?

    Do you guys mainboard Unoored Ego ?


    I don't. In fact, I've never really found the sideboard copies to be quite good enough as a 3 mana sorcery.


    Then what is your plan against Tron and Valakut?

    I'm fairly certain UR Phoenix is a bad matchup.

    @hoser2, I really like Roalesk, Apex Hybrid and Storrev, Devkarin Lich. Are they really not good enough to make the cut?

    I'm just riding with Assassin's Trophy. It cleans up most of that stuff at instant speed and is still relevant against other decks. I will say that U am a little more interested in Abrupt Decay lately.

    The first live run went very well. I was shocked. I also initially wasn't a fan of the idea, but Jeskai had done it to decent success (when Lightning Bolt was better positioned), which is why I didn't think it would be a huge problem. I don't know how the guy I saw on Facebook did it with 24 lands, but I went to 25. It seems unbelievably greedy to run any Field of Ruin in a 3-color deck. In any case, I'm going to continue tweaking it. It seems pretty nice against Tron and control builds. I'm looking to test against Phoenix and Humans next.
