About Esper Midrange
Mulligan and Game Stance
vs. Control (Esper and UW)Removals become useless in this match, while we want counters and discards. The ideal is to be able to keep Malevolent Hermit on the board to counter spells or prevent our plays from being countered, as this deck has a tap out proposal, not giving us much room for us to spend the turn with open mana for interactions.
vs. Midrange (Esper, Jund and Bant)There is no general rule for sideboarding Esper mirrors or against Jund. Ray of Enfeeblement is good against Esper and worth adding, removing Luminarch and a Kaito or two Kaito in case we are on the draw. Massacre can be useful on the draw, but unnecessary on the play, it's better to leave a Portable Hole.
