Shards of Alara Block Constructed Part 8: Esper February 18, 2009

Posted by James in : all, strategy, tips, constructed, shards of alara block , trackback

Conflux has given Esper very little other than Court Homunculus, but it is a great addition considering that Esper was a little on the slow side. Here is my current idea for an esper deck:
4 Ethersworn Canonist
4 Tidehollow Strix
4 Scourglass
4 Court Homunculus
4 Etherium Sculptor
4 Master of Etherium
2 Sharuum the Hegemon
2 Sphinx Summoner
Tower Gargoyle
4 Agony Warp
4 Arcane Sanctum
2 Crumbling Necropolis
2 Seaside Citadel
6 plains
6 island
4 swamp

Ethersworn Canonist, Court Homunculus, Scourglass, and Master of Etherium are “must haves” in an Esper deck.  Etherium Sculptor and cards with high mana costs, such as Shruum of Hegemon, might not be a good idea. They can be replaced with more removal (Path to Exile and Oblivion Ring), Sanctum Gargoyle, and/or Esperzoa.
