I lost in the finals of a modern gp trial today to a very cool esper deck with stuff like geist of saint traft, the 2cc w/b creature that steals a card from opponents hand, lingering souls, pte, iok, thoughtseize etc. just a very cool deck (i was running g/r tron). It got me thinking about a standard esper deck. obviously standards hand destruction is pretty lacking right now but this is the list I just threw together. Delver with utility creatures and restoration angel. Any ideas/thoughts/suggestions to improve the deck? there are 2 versions. check em out

2 [M12] Island (4)

If it's between those 2 lists, I'd play the first one, because nephalia smuggler is just not good at all, and if you play anything with BW in it, you have to have a good excuse not to play lingering souls.

If you say you played against an esper deck with geist of saint traft in modern (with the better creature base), why don't you run him in any of the decks?

I'd like to see some equipment in there, with all the little critters/tokens. Swords are still overpowered and in standard Very Happy

I don't think there is enough to warrant the black splash. Delver is fine u/w.
