Thanks for the replies, will give blood operatives another go tomorrow :)
Really enjoy this deck with Blood Operative and Plaguecrafter. Also running Thief of Sanity as I only have one Dream Eater. Has won me games on its own tbh
I`m running 3 BO`s instead of Essences. It stabilizes your game vs izzets((jump start/phoenix) and golgaris (graveyard) due to additional exile. Also might help vs aggros/tokens but tbh it`s not what you are looking for in these matchups. In terms of control we are favoured vs Grixis/Golgari and about 65/35 to izzets. White/Blue mills, Teferis and basically everything counter/draw heavy is trashing us - won`t skip that.
I do really well against aggro with this deck, most of my 7-0 runs were because it was mostly aggro matchups. Control is definitely tough though since the deck is so creature removal heavy. Hopefully after some more runs you can get used to the deck (or just have better luck).
This deck seems good, but I'm getting destroyed by aggro decks like Mono-Red Aggro, Boros Aggro and White Wheenie. It's very hard to win against Izzet decks and Teferi decks too. Maybe I had very bad luck but I went 0-3 / 1-3 / 0-3...
Man, love this deck. Fought against it twice in a row with my Golgari deck and it felt so punishing to get hit by thought eraser into Disinformation Campaign. He was also playing Divest, which seems sneaky good given the amount of fast monster starts you can face.

Matches can run long, but love control. Got a number of impatient opponents to scoop thinking they're dead even when I haven't completely stabilized.
I like the 1 of detection tower. I run one in my list and up the land count to 25. It helps against tyrant and also randomly against other hexproof and things like dive down.
I tested out a ton of cards, the only thing that I was thinking of adding to the Maybeboard (which is basically just ideas people can throw in based on their playstyle) was Nightveil Predator.
Have you given any further thoughts to your "Maybe Board"?
mono red is my favorite matchup with the deck, not sure what you are doing wrong...
