I like only running 2 Elvish Mystic here. Definitely like 4x Satyr Wayfinder to put cards in your graveyard. I would also add 4x Sylvan Caryatid to this brew still for mana fixing. It's also hard to play a green deck without Courser of Kruphix. Definitely possible, but I think it deserves a spot here. Siege Rhino is great on it's own and great whip material! I'd cut the Hornet Queen's down to 2. That's getting your mana cost up there pretty high. I would say run 3 HQ's, but Ashen Rider is a card I would put in this deck for sure as a 1 of. Pharika, God of Affliction is good in here. I would keep that and Doomwake Giant (probably as only a 2 of though for Doomwake Giant) in the deck and Courser really helps with that. 1 copy of Soul of Innistrad or Soul of Theros wouldn't be bad in here. They do well on the field or graveyard. For other spells, I'd probably go 3 whips (like you have), 2 Commune with the Gods, 2x Abzan Charm, 2x Hero's Downfall, and 4x Murderous Cut. If you played with those spells and 24 land, you should have about 23 creatures.

Jace, the Mind Sculptor is actually extremely playable in any format where it's legal. Especially in control and combo decks. The reusable card advantage is incredibly important in a long game, and it can get rid of possible threats. He gets even better if you play some fetches of course.
Speaking of combo, how does this deck hold up against combo decks? You're only playing 5 counterspells (7 if you include Squelch and Stifle, which in this case, I don't), so disrupting a combo deck will be quite difficult. I'm also not seeing alternative disruption, for instance Aven Mindcensor. So I'm inclined to believe this deck has a difficult time handling combo decks. Swan Song, Delay, Pact of Negation, Venser, Shaper Savant, Counterspell, Mana Drain are all very useful and much more maneuverable than a Draining Whelk or Time Stop.
Manarocks might not be your style of playing, but playing Kor Cartographer as your only ramp/fixing seems very lackluster, not even Sol Ring? In my meta, EDH games are won by card advantage and winning the land/mana race, neither of these seem very achievable with this build. How do you cope with faster decks that can produce 6 mana on turn 3?

Hey, I am really interested in 2 of your Elspeth, Sun's Champion ($41.88)
I am prepared to offer you the following 2 offers for them:
Offer 1: 3 Goblin Rabblemaster ($40.65)
Let me know if either of these offers appeal to you. Thanks!

Ashen Rider so you can potentially blow up things that they put onto the battlefield, it'd be awkward if they got an emrakul too, perhaps just 1-2 though

No matter which color you go, I think that there are some other reanimator cards you might want to look at. Nyx Weaver can get creatures into your graveyard and can pull out a whip in case it gets milled. Endless Obedience can pull creatures permanently out of the graveyard and can be convoked by your Satyr Wayfinder and the Nyx Weaver. Ashen Rider is also something to consider as a huge creature to pull out of the graveyard. As for my take on sultai or abzan, I personally prefer sultai for delve because Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is like a Nyx Weaver with the ability to stall until you can reanimate, plus she can convoke your Endless Obedience

@goodair: I believe you mean Immortal Servitude? That doesn't sound half bad, though I think Whip would still be better-- mainly because Whip gets repeated uses. I'm considering using Pack Rats for discard, so that I can use Whip to cheat Ashen Rider and such into play. In general, I think Whip is superior resurrection for this deck because its lone drawback is nullified so often, leaving it simply better than stuff like Unburial Rites in my opinion.
Even though I do like 3 drops for Sun Titan synergy, I don't think I use quite enough to justify the Immortal Servitude.
Also, I just discovered Nightveil Specter. What an absolutely hilarious card!
I'm thinking about adding Angel of Serenity, because it's essentially a win condition. I'll have to see how I feel about the deck's speed after playing it for a while. It probably deserves a slot in the sideboard, at least.
