The fact that even with cards like this, Sharuum the Hegemon, and Master Transmuter, Esper took a back seat to Jund and Bant at tournaments really speaks volumes.

"I love stumbling into artifact cards and seeing "Works great with Master Transmuter. There are probably three whole artifacts in the history of magic that DON'T work with Master Transmuter. Stop bringing it up, we get it."

I'm pretty sure people are bringing that up because of the "during your upkeep" clause on Scourglass. So along with only paying U, you get to put it down on the safety of your upkeep and activate it immediately. If that doesn't sound like a huge deal, consider that in a 1-on-1 if you tutored this (rather than top-decking it) you're shaving one turn off of locking down the game, and in a larger gameā€¦ well, put this down on your main phase and see if you can survive to your ne...

Scourglass + Sanctum Gargoyle + Master Transmuter = wipe out your opponent's board EVERY turn.

Really didn't want the card in my artifact deck but my wife made me put it in(obviously she is smarter than me). Playing a friend of mine put it in play. He had Broodmother dragon(?) on the board for a while. MANY DRAGON TOKENS. 1 Scourglass later, cleared the board of ALL his dragons and won the game. He officially hates the deck now and named it "Outta Time".

couldn't you use bringer of the white dawns effect to play this during your upkeep and then activate this ability since it is still technically your upkeep.

this card is broken. Esper itself is broken. This card mixed with cards like sharuum the hegemon and master transmuter makes you wipe the field....every turn. sorry not wipe the field, wipe your opponents field. This card makes me cringe.

My only issue with this is that you can only use it during your upkeep, was a moment of sadness when I read that on mine.
