Esper aggro-control with focus on Surveil and filling graveyard with instants and sorceries. Finishers are Pteramander, Dimir Spybug, Warden–all of which can become dangerous 4/4 or 5/5 flyers; or a bunch of flying Thopter tokens via Deploy.

The spells perform one or more of these:

– [b]surveil[/b] to improve your next draws
– [b]control[/b] ala countermagic, discard, removal
– [b]tempo[/b] to slow down opponent
– [b]protection[/b] via counters (Siren Stormtamer), hexproof
– creature [b]tokens[/b] as finishers

The Azorius split cards Depose // Deploy and Warrant // Warden are amazing. Early they can be tempo, and later they create tokens to finish the game. So they count as creatures, but also fill the grave for Pteramander. Furthermore, they can be flashbacked with Mission Briefing–it’s absolutely sick. Recast Deploy to gain more Thopters and gain huge amounts life; or recast Warden for another 4/4 flying vigilant.
