Alexander Hayne returned to an earlier Standard archetype for Mythic Championship VII: Esper Hero. His version only had one copy of Hero of Precinct One, but still! It counts, right Brian Braun-Duin?

In any case, this is a classic control deck for the current Standard environment: sweepers, removal and just a couple finishers. Kenrith, the Returned King only really needs its blue and white modes to justify its place in a control list. Instant-speed card draw on a stick lets you hold up countermagic every turn without worrying about falling behind on card advantage, and gaining 5 life on demand quickly puts you out of reach of aggro decks.

Not to mention, all that life gain makes Bolas's Citadel into a six-mana play-your-whole-deck.
