White doesnt bring much. Id say Push is even better than Path for Mill because we arent going for lategame, we just want to hold off opponent for some time, so we need to hit little things more than big things.Quote from yianni78 »Hey gang, I'm wondering why people have gone away from the Esper build of the deck? The great sideboard cards plus Path (with archive trap) seems great. Why has this gone away? Is it just the worse mana base?
@vito653 I can agree with most you said calling it personal preference except Iquisition vs Thoughtseize. Inquisition is not a side tech vs aggro and midrange so life doesnt matter when you want to disrupt combo or control. Also maybe you overestimate Oboro. I play it myself and it rarely matters. Most of the times Crab dies or one of us wins before I can abuse Oboro. Besides the fact that you cant search for it. Btw Im not a fan of Surgical main. I share the opinion that its the most misused card. Recently I brought them for combo matchup but my opponent sided into Geist of Saint Traft and I died two times to it. This lowers its value for me because its not super good even vs combo. But Mill is one of the greatest shell for it and it has results so I call it personal preference too.
