Hello! Do you have any tips on building a good esper blink deck? Also I love you and you're great!

Nope! But I know how to build a Bant one. Does that help?

Try to achieve a good balance between what causes blinking and what does the blinking. If it’s EDH, who’s the commander, and how do they interact with the deck? My blink deck is lead by Roon of the Hidden Realm, and he’s normally the source of the blinking, so I only include a few blink cards and have mostly creatures that are affected by Roon. Does that make sense? 

In terms of card recommendations, Deadeye Navigator, Mistmeadow Witch, and Brago, King Eternal bounce stuff in your colors. Oracle of Dust helps deal with those pesky attackers that will come back at the end of the turn, and Stonehorn Dignitary is just as frustrating as it needs to be. 

Also, if anything taps for effect, get Illusionist’s Bracers, and Second Wind. Good cards, those.

Ya’ll have been good waiting for me while I post all this non-magic crap, so here’s a lovely lockdown combo for you.

Venser does +2 to bounce Stonehorn dignitary for the turn, and once he returns to play his triggered ability causes the opponent to skip their combat phase, they lose the chance to attack Venser. And since you can use Venser’s ability once a turn every turn, permitting both Venser and Stonehorn are not destroyed, your opponent can’t attack for the rest of the game!
