    Interesting, previously people thought Teyo was a lady, guess he's just handsome and wears a robe.


    The few white dudes they put on cards these days mostly look like a cross dresser at best lol


    Such as?


    The new Domri art looks like some teenage girl at a My Chemical Romance concert and that blue twin planeswalker from the multiplayer set I forget the name of is basically Brienne from Game Of Thrones but a man? lol. This new planeswalker too.
    But to be honest, it's hard finding examples because there basically aren't any white dudes in any of the artwork anyway lel. Older sets were a nice mix of everything, but the newer sets are pretty blatant with the whole appeasing to political correctness. Oh well, the game is still fun.

    I went 3-1 at my local FNM last night. Won against Mono Red, Sultai Control and Orzhov midrange. Lost to Simic Merfolk.
    Should have had a great game 1 versus Merfolk, but had to mull a lot and had some bad draws in both games. Bummer, but that's just how it goes sometimes.

    All the other games went pretty well and it was fun to play.

    My list is pretty similar to most other lists, only difference was I had 1 main deck Lyra (which was pretty handy in a few game 1 actually), so my main deck win cons are Lyra, Chromium and 4 Teferi. I took one settle out of the main to make room for Lyra. I just miss having more creatures in the main deck from pre rotation and I find it too slow with only having Chromium and a couple of Teferi as win cons. As fun as it is to make people concede on Arena with a Teferi on board, it's really boring in person, and I don't like watching whoever I'm playing against whine and moan and get frustrated with "playing until I'm forced to concede"

    I was also running 9 more creatures in my sideboard, so it basically becomes a midrange'esque deck post sideboard versus some matchups, which is pretty fun. I should probably just play Esper midrange hehe.
    I have 1 more Lyra, 2 Angel of Grace, 2 Hostage Taker and 4 Theif of Sanity.
    Like mentioned above, I think people are aware of the thieves coming in from the sideboard, so it's probably time to adjust that sideboard plan, but people luckily for me they didn't expect so many more creatures coming in Smile

    I put 1 Field of Ruin in the deck, but didn't have a matchup where it was needed and the times I had it on the battlefield it wasn't a problem not being a colour, so can't really say something about how useful or bad it was yet.

    Anyway, glad I had a good win ratio for once at FNM and it was fun to play. I usually get my ass kicked all the time there.

    How are you all feeling about adding one Field of ruin? Flipped lands are running pretty rampant as of late.

    How are you all doing so far?

    I went 1-2-1 at my first FNM last week. Deck felt strong, but a little slow and clunky the way I built it. Not enough early interaction. Still managed to get my one win agaisnt Boros aggro hehe (Although he wrecked me in roughly 4min game 1 hehe) Ran two Angel of Grace and two Lyra in the sideboard. Those Angel of Grace are for real!! They were really good in my matches.

    I think I'm going to tool my deck around this build for my next FNM. It's got some more early game stuff going and looks strong and fun to play.

    I still miss the pre rotation style of Esper with fatal push, Scarab God and stuff like that. I REALLY miss Fatal push hehe. I don't know if I'm going to play standard until rotation again. I can just feel it's kinda time for me to get a proper modern deck too.

    How are you all seeing Esper Control now that the new set is out?

    Very disappointed in the Andendum keyword and a lot of the Azorius cards. But 4 main deck Kaya's Wrath is making my nipples hard lol. Such a sick card!

    Angel of grace is awesome too. Imagine having a Lyra on the battlefield and then flashing this in? GG hehe
    Most of those UW cards were not supposed to help control. Quench looks good.
    4x Kaya's Wrath is killer. Been running them in BW Control.


    Yeah, it's bull***** they made Azorius crap because of Teferi. I still went with them at the pre release either way hehe.

    To me Quench seems better than Syncopate. Syncopate is almost always the first card I side out and they kinda fit the same spot.

    The question to me is still, is the deck strong enough now? Is it better than Niv Mizzet? I like the non damaged based removal from black over the red damage spells, but Niv Mizzet alone is pretty much better than everything else hehe.
    I still think jeskai is stronger, but I prefer playing with Esper.

    I'm just hoping that Esper Control gets back to it's pre rotation glory. I'm kinda thinking that Jeskai will just get more fuel from this set though. Jeskai is cool, but I just prefer Esper.

    I told you bro yesterday. MARO flat out said we did are best to keep Teferi down despite that rule never applying to other powerful walkers but now control must be kept down. Look if WOTC doesn't like control fine but then they need to stop wimping out and fully rebalance color pie so every color gets better creatures.


    ***** sucks Frown
    I'll still wait and check the full set before getting too sad, but man I miss my pre rotation Esper Control deck Frown

    Hmm, very disappointed with Addendum. It's totally opposite of what a control player wants to do. I'll wait and see the full set before getting too sad about it, but man.... pretty lame mechanic.

    You say that as if creature decks are not a solid option? The pro tour was won by creature decks, BG is (if you believe MTGGoldfish) 26% of the meta.

    Creatures are more than fine and idiotic 'protection' like hexproof doesnt improve the game.


    I swear they don't want control to exist at all...Midrange and Aggro only under MARO & FRIENDS. No Control and No Combo Allowed.

    Maro even said yeah we are going to make sure not to print cards that make Teferi better in Azorious...I am sorry why does this apply to Teferi. I don't remember Chandra being pushed to all hell and MARO coming out and saying we plan to make sure Red gets nothing good in Amonkhet or Ixalan or Dominaria. Of course, not Red got good after good card and spent months on top of the meta. But the Control Walker is good so we need make sure he doesn't get better. SMFH. And not only will we make sure Control gets nothing or as little good as possible, will print a card that rekts the best board wipe in standard cause I guess there is just not enough creature decks in standard.

    And yeah according to mtggoldfish apparently 14% of the meta is too much dominance for control meanwhile aggro and midrange have the other 85% what is good amount of control apparently 0% according to MARO.


    Man, this makes me worried. Esper Control was my favourite deck pre rotation and I was hoping when this set came out it would give it the tools to be awesome again, but I'm worried about this statement.
    I love playing control, I even think control vs control is really fun, but hearing people whine every time you play a counterspell gets tiresome. People need to hate less on control and just play.

    Temur riot counters??? Sounds good to me!!!

    Hadana's Climb here I come!!!

    Adapt seems pretty weak. Pretty sad about that. Was hoping to finally have a sick Hadana's Climb deck hehe. I'll keep my hopes up until the full set is revelaed though. I love that card and +1/+1 counter synergies Smile

    Really hoping for some sick Azorious cards. I really want to play Esper Control too in standard and not go down the jeskai route.
