Agreed. I've had a number of SCR draft decks which have been almost 50% Reborn cards, none of which was fixing.
My problem with esper is that if more than one person goes esper, both decks end up mediocre. Being able to table cloudheath drake, darklit gargoyle, and shieldbearer is key.
Just got back from another FNM and I'm finding my opinions continually vindicated. Even in the hands of a competent player, I didn't see an Esper deck beat anyone except scrubs all evening (over 3 drafts, 2 of which I played in). On the other hand, Bant is waaaay better than I even had previously thought, and I'm talking full blown WUG Bant. You have a ludicrous amount of good creatures, quite a few of which end up being UW, so you really need to have a consistent mana base. Also, I'm beginning to think that Grixis is almost dead as a deck as well, because it's just so much worse in Reborn. There was still a lot of great quality unearth stuff even in Conflux, but there's just so little in Reborn, and you lose all of your good cards to BR aggro, which is just better.
This might be playable in standard, but I like it better in Extended with spells like Ancestral Vision and Hypergenesis and Living End. 0cc spells FTW!
I am sure that there are some really good cascade combos or decks that can be made in standard, but it seems much more suited for limited or extended comboliciousness.
Seems like another 2 for 1 card for control... while Faeries can use this, this actually seems better in 5 color, as they can counter your creature spell and get back a Mulldrifter, or some other creature that breaks your back.
