Legacy Esper Vial by JTL005
Jeff Lin, aka JTL005 on MTGO, did it again and won a Legacy PTQ on MTGO with his pet deck, Esper Vial! He’s the master of the archetype and keeps on crushing with a deck that he only seem to be winning with.
Charming Prince is certainly a card you don’t get to see often, but this deck has four copies of it! It’s great in combination with Gilded Drake since you’re able to first cast the Drake, get your opponent’s creature and then play Charming Prince to blink the Drake that you own, but don’t control. Then, at the end step, you’ll be able to steal another creature while keeping the one you stole previously. It also combos with all the other disruption pieces such as Venser, Shaper Savant and Palace Jailer, where you get to do incremental advantage that your opponent cannot keep up with.
This deck requires a deep knowledge of the format, just like every Meddling Mage deck ever. It’s also very intricate to unveil since there’s so many subtle synergies, and it’s no surprise that only Jeff has managed to master it at this level.
