Seems u reliable, I won games day with jeskai wins an the reason it so good is it never mulligans (or almost never) u might have a really good hand that explodes out but if your 1 or 2 threats are dealt with then u end up with nothing much left, also, playing dark steel citadel in a 3 colour deck must really hurt ur mana base

I thought you'd be on Jeskai Gui!!!

I'm playing Esper Control and it's hard work, but a lot of fun!!! Got a Temur midrangey thing built which I'm going to try out for the first time on Thursday... Think it's ok but not amazing.

yeah the colourless can hurt, have to be careful what i do and which dual land to tapped, spring leafdrum helps a lot but being able to make a 5/5 indistuctiblre outweighs this negative

I agree with steve, elspeth isn't very good right now and Pericles vault is just as good as end hostilities, + the mana is better in blue black so u can play radiant fountain etc...

Part of the reason is that I only have 1 perilous vault at the moment so I'm trying to cover the gap with end hostilities - there's very little white in it, just that and 2 Utter Ends I think. Pretty easy to fetch for the white with flooded strands so it doesn't take too much away from the deck.

The font of fortune is interesting... Had thought about it but discarded it. I originally had +2 jaces ingenuity and -2 drown in sorry but I'm very scared about token decks at the moment!
