Why not replace the Inquisition with 2 more thoughtsiezes?
Oh haha, sorry. I just threw this up to give my buddy an idea of why I think esper (or even Dimir + X) control is bad. The issue is that the cards you want to play in black (lingering souls, inquisition, liliana, and thought seize) are all sorcery speed cards. But you're also kind of forced to play instant speeds as well - path, counters, push, etc... And dividing up a control deck between reactive and proactive is never good... You either want to play all proactive or all reactive.
To finish my thoughts on the matter... Playing esper means you'll want to play sorcery speed, which means you don't get to play a lot of the best control... So, you basically need to mainboard 4 chalice, play lots of board wipes, lots of discard, liliana, jace, detention spheres, etc... And you need every proactive card to be just as good as the instant speed answers that Jeskai brings to the table.
any reason for the lands?
Wow I totally missed that all the basic lands are forests. The non basic ones I like just cause they're always handy, but forests....
Yup sorry. It wasn't a real deck. I was just talking to a buddy on the phone and threw it up so show him why Dimir + X is bad.
