Yes, its probably going to be a terrible format for control. No, that doesn't deter me from posting this tap out control list.


4 Azorius Guildgate
4 Steam Vents
4 Glacial Fortress
3 Island
3 Sulfur Falls
3 Hallowed Fountain
2 Izzet Guildgate
1 Plains


4 Snapcaster Mage
4 Augur of Bolas
3 Thundermaw Hellkite


4 Think Twice
2 Desperate Ravings


4 Pillar of Flame
4 Mizzium Mortars
4 Supreme Verdict
2 Terminus


3 Izzet Charm


1 Devil's Play

Things of note:
Gates in the manabase - You can afford CIPT lands, and I don't want to take 3trillion damage from shocks.

Gates are strictly worse than shocklands.  Even if you rarely want to take the shock, it's still nice to have the option, because sometimes you just need to cast that wrath to not die that turn.


this is truth

anyways, its a little rough around the edges, but all in all, i'm definitely interested in a deck like this.  (angelfire, anyone?) 

Blue is the best color ever. How do you deal?  ------------------------------  Team GFG - "gulf, foxtrot, gulf"

I think you probably will want some O-rings in this.  That zombie troll dude gets around red removal and wraths rather easily (Terminus notwithstanding).

Hopefully we get some kind of instant white exile spell.  Probably not, but a guy can dream.
It needs more beats. Gotta be able to end the game with more than three guys. Terminus and 4-of Augur seem meh to me atm, almost like overkill. I think you could use these slots to add in more creatures and go a little more midrange like the old Angelfire.

I know the list looks rough, but that was just 20 minutes of brainstorming. I'm having difficulties as to which direction I should take the deck.

I can take it pure UW Miracle control, UWr Angelfire or UWb (because of Lingering Souls). My brain is tilting towards lingering souls or the pure version. I can also see the untapped potential of RWb control peeking its head too. I'm pretty braindead at the moment and my head is only spitting out GW lists. I'll revisit this if I feel revitalised about the concept.

esper doesn't have the guild support like UWR does.
