Single Scoop: Esper Blink 182 (Historic, Magic Arena)

Gameplan

We're an 'enters the battlefield' style of deck that is looking to take advantage of Ephemerate and other blinking abilities!

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

With how many ways we have to blink (hence the name and my love for Blink 182), we should be able to accumulate a ton of value and out grind our opponents! The deck looks light on interaction but a ton of our removal comes from blinking cards like Ravenous Chupacabra and Hostage Taker! We also have disruption out of blinking Meddling Mage, Acquisitions Expert, and Elite Spellbinder

Conclusion

The deck is playing a bunch of two-powered creatures and can't really punish an opponent for tapping out. In most situations, a rogue or control deck can't tap out in fear of a punishing follow-up play but with our deck, we don't really have anything to punish with. One thing I'd look to add is bigger threats. I'm not quite sure what that would be outside of something like a Cavalier, but those are intense on mana colors. We need more ways to speed up the clock and to interact with cheap spells. The deck is a lot of fun and was a sweet starting point but definitely needs a ton of retooling. 

Thanks for watching and I'll see you at the next video <3
