_The most efficient means to control all creature based decks. Mandatory.
2 x Declaration in Stone
3 x Grasp of Darkness
2 x Anguished Unmaking
3 x Murder
2 x Languish
2 x Planar Outburst

_Specialized hate.
1 x Fragmentize
3 x Dead Weight
1 x Suppression Bonds

_Card advantage & card selection.
3 x Whispers of Emrakul
4 x Read the Bones
1 x Diabolic Tutor
1 x Tamiyo's Journal

_The 4 best walkers for the job!
1 x Liliana, the Last Hope
1 x Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
1 x Ob Nixilis Reignited
1 x Sorin, Grim Nemesis

_Win conditions. DT for Bruna should be the way most games are won.
1 x Gisela, the Broken Blade
1 x Bruna, the Fading Light

_The Lands
2 x Geier Reach Sanitarium
2 x Isolated Chapel
2 x Shambling Vent
3 x Forsaken Sanctuary
3 x Evolving Wilds
1 x Mortuary Mire
8 x Swamp
5 x Plains


Reasons to add ...
3 Glimmer of Genius
1 Jace, Unraveler of Secrets
_These replace Read the Bones. They scry & draw with the upside of not losing life at instant speed. Energy is also added to fuel x3 Aether Hub to ensure the best 3-color mana base!

3 Telling Time
_This replaces Whispers of Emrakul. Your trading Hymn to Tourach for efficient card filtering in a 3-color deck.

1 Dispel
2 Unsubstantiate
_These could replace Dead Weight for better match-ups against non-aggressive decks.

2 Imprisoned in the Moon
2 Scatter to the Winds
_These replace DT, Bonds, & Journal for better match-up against control & planeswalker decks. I usually am torn between these and x4 Spell Shrivel for ease of use but because games last so long I'm preferring what I've got already.

1 Jace, Vryn's Prodigy
1 Disciple of the Ring
_These replace the 2 angels. These are more efficient at beating non-creature spell heavy decks. You've got Spell Pierce and tapping on a stick as well as flashback any target instant/sorcery.

In conclusion, WB is better against aggression while Esper is better against much slow decks with fair game against aggro.

There is never a reason to add blue. Island is the worst card in magic.

The issue I think we will start seeing with Blue Hulk is how few staple instants are available in Esper that you want to run in large numbers. ATM, your W/B list has 8 in total (3x Grasp, 3x Murder, 2x Unmaking). You'd likely have to cut down on your sorcery speed spells to accommodate the Telling Times, Glimmers and counterspells to make it worth it.

If you're adding Blue for Hulk, then Dead Weight would have to go.

Deal. +1 Suppression Bonds but the Whisper of Emrakul are staying in.
