Fish Five-0: Esper Superfriends

Loading Indicator


If you're in this article, you've definitely seen my prior content and my love for Planeswalkers and Esper. It's been a while since War of the Spark, but I feel that Esper now has hit a critical mass of Planeswalkers and that means it's time to get the band back together.

Meet The Wandering Emperor, our lead vocalist. The Wandering Emperor has already proven to be a powerful Magic card as that flash ability essentially allows us to activate her twice.

She could be a way for us to get threats, or she could be our answer with some nice lifegain on top of that hehe. Up next, we've got a new band member to join the superfriends...

Kaito Shizuki is exactly what our deck has been missing. It's a cheap early win condition that can easily pile up on the card advantage as that unblockable 1/1 is key.  The 1/1 is a way to make our +1 just draw a card or the +1 can be a loot if needed. A nice thing about Kaito is that it dodges Vanishing Verse which is the premier removal spell right now.

Another instrument the band got was March of Otherworldly Light. This card is an absolutely absurd removal spell right now. Hitting creature lands, artifacts, or enchantments is absurd. At the time of filming, I was a young man and didn't understand that this card should be a four-of in our deck. Farewell is another efficient sweeper for standard. Hitting everything except a planeswalker is exactly what we need. 


The deck got so many powerful new threats and tools. The numbers may be off but I think we could probably add another Kaito Shizuki and Farewell. Our answers are so potent right now that I assume this will be the deck to dethrone the Orzhov control deck. 

Thanks for watching the content.
