Tempo in MTG Standard: Izzet/Mono-Blue with Worlds and Brothers’ War

The Worlds metagame turned out to be an Esper-fest. Almost 70 percent of the players brought Esper Midrange, which is a crazy number and definitely makes it seem like it is the best deck in the format. That said, it can still have a bad matchup. 

I’m writing this article at the end of Day 1 and you might be surprised that the only two players who brought Haughty Djinn decks are currently 4-0 and 3-1, with the only loss coming in a match between themselves! 

Is the Mono-Blue Tempo deck the answer to this format? I believe it might be.
