My buddy actually swapped to this deck day of the SCG Open and played it, went 5-3-1 day one. Decklist above was updated to what was played.
From the break down of the SCG open for day 1. His 3 loses were to good players who were able to curve out very well.
Round 1: G/W Tokens VS R/G aggro, He won in 2. No issues
Round 2: G/W Tokens VS U/B Graveyard, He won in 3. Ran into trouble game 2 when opponent got all 4 of his prized amalgam into graveyard and was able to bring them back very early and kept them out.
Round 3: G/W Tokens VS Grixix Emerge, He lost in 3. Deadlock Trap locked down Gideon most turns and each game. Elder Deep Fiend finished the games off. Lack of manlands can hurt in times like these.
Round 4: G/W Tokens VS W/R Aggro, He won in 2. No issues
Round 5: G/W Tokens VS W/R Vehicle Aggro, He won in 2. No issues
Round 6: G/W Tokens VS Enerdrazzi, He lost in 3. Both loses opponent either Emerakul or Ulamog Turn 4 or 5.
Round 7: G/W Tokens VS Jund, He won in 2. No issues
Round 8: G/W Tokens VS W/U Double, He lost in 2. First game he didn't play around counterspells main board VS blue deck.
Round 9: G/W Tokens VS B/G Delirium, Went to round 3 with only 10 minutes left. Opponent slow played and went to time. He missed 1 trigger for a +1/+1 counter and that cost him the game. Opponent has 1 life after attacks on turn 4.
Finished the weekend with 5-3-1, didn't make day 2. Better luck next time.

Sep 25, 2016Posted in: Standard ArchivesQuote from GoblinRabblemaster »I would say that if you are playing at SCG next weekend go with a linear aggro deck. Something like R/W vehicles, R/G aggro, or some sort of white weenie that uses Thraben Inspector as a one drop that can power Smuggler's Copter. Wait to see what the meta shapes up to be in a few weeks, maybe even after the PT, to see what control looks like. I am on the bandwagon hoping that control can become tier 1.
That said I THINK that running 3 color control is dangerous IF on turn 6 or 7 you play a land that comes in tapped when it needed to come in untap. Could be wrong. Peace.
Buddy that is going with me is doing a W/R deck with the Copter, i want to test a deck that isn't the same.
Sep 22, 2016I have been paper testing a lot of decks with the new cards against current tier 1 decks in standard seeing how they will hold up(even if they are rotating) I will be playing the first SCG open of Kaladesh and would like a decent deck going in. Please leave any feedback you have. Thanks and enjoy!Posted in: Standard Archives
I am stuck between this deck, a G/W Tokens deck, and a W/R artifact/Nahiri Deck. I believe this Esper deck will come out on top.

Build I have been thinking about doing since Dovin Baan preview, pretty much an already established deck except it is loosing a few good cards. I am going to run Succumb to Temptations over Live Fast because I have no energy spenders and would rather cast that at instant speed at the end of their turn. Depends on the new meta game on what cards go into sideboard. Some of them are just going to be good overall, some will be removed.
Feel free to post any feedback, lets see if we can continue to improve this deck.
Sep 22, 2016Personally I don't like the Cataclysmic Gearhulk as a sideboard card(almost exactly like Tragic Arrogance)Posted in: Standard Archives
This person has an Esper deck as well, i like cards you have and cards he has.
Both decks splashed Blue for Dovan and the Oath.
I am not a fan so many cards being double in the same color, but shouldn't be to bad.
Also, if anyone could tell me how to put the planeswalker(+count), creature,instant,lands in the deck lists with sideboards. I Can't see to figure it out

Is the build I am going to be running Week 1 for Kaladesh. I feel the 2 planeswalkers alone can stall long enough to get those modules online and working over time. obviously my sideboard will have a lot of control cards and board wipes. against huge aggro decks the modules will be removed.
Sep 18, 2016I messaged around with B/W Angels when Eldritch Moon first game out. I wasn't to impressed with it because Gisela is a 3 toughness and gets removed so easily, with Fiery Impulse gone, might be viable. I am looking to include the Modules, I believe they will do so much work, turn your missing a big creature you just create a token with a planeswalker and then create a bunch of 1/1 servo and get that many +1/+1 counters making a creature bigger.Posted in: Standard Archives
I am looking to get this deck ready for opening weekend and take it to Indianapolis Starcityopen. Considering this deck or a R/W control deck that has been bouncing around this forum, had a similar idea and adapted a few cards from it.

This list I have been running at my LGS's on both Standard FNM and Standard Mondays. The only struggle I seem to have currently is against the new Storm decks. for last 2 weeks i have gone 15-1 losing only to R/W aggro deck that got 2 copters online ASAP and started the beat downs.
