Introduction to Esper Control

Esper Control has become a strong, viable color wedge with the introduction of new associated dual lands and spells with Ravnica Allegiance. The deck aims to deal with all the opponent’s threats and play the long game. They deck is packed full of creature removal, counterspells and hand disruption. Win conditions generally involve powerful planeswalkers with inevitability such as Teferi, Hero of Dominaria.

Esper Control can have a lot of variety when building the deck. The suite of spells to deal with opponent’s threats will differ depending on the meta of the ladder or the tournament at the time. For example, cheap removal such as Moment of Craving is good against Mono Red but not so much against anywhere else.
