Looks badass!

Armistice could provide card draw and gain you life.

The Blessed Alliance should go in here, that would be nice.

Authority of the Consuls is good at slowing creatures down but a bit expensive, Blind Obedience is a cheaper alternative.

Curse of the Forsaken would just be evil. Lol Although a bit slow.

Lifelink, Oust, uh idk what else. Lol Those may not help much, looks good as is.

Oh and Save Life for sure! ;)

on second thought in a removal heavy meta I'll go with Spell Pierces as they're also good for stuff like Blessed Alliance or Celestial Flare

I think you have enough humans that Thalia's Lieutenant and Heron's Grace Champion could be considerations.

As for your sideboard, here are some cards that I run in my standard sideboards. Mine is a bit more controlling so it has to devote a bit more to fight against aggressive decks than yours will. You still should have a plan for those decks though.

Authority of the Consuls: for decks that try to make infinite creatures or super aggressive decks

Blessed Alliance Also good against decks that unload a lot of damage quickly

Fragmentize: Note this is sorcery speed which doesn't usually matter but there are some match ups where it does. Cheapest way to hit big ones at instant speed are Decommission&Appetite for the Unnatural

Descend upon the Sinful for the decks that keep reanimating creatures, this can exile all of them.

Quarantine Field a catch-all for that one super annoying permanent

I think going with a life gain style deck would be cool. Things like Lone Rider  Flip, Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn and Night Market Lookout are kick ass. Plenty of good angels you can use too. Life gain makes Dismember much more affordable.

I would go with Rest for the Weary over Resupply. There is no card draw but its a lot cheaper mana cost. The land fall is great with it.

For some card draw Sign in Blood, Asylum Visitor.

Edge of Divinity is great and even better for creatures that are both black and white.

Getting a look at your opponents hand is always great, and making them discard something is good too. Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are your more pricey spells money wise, Duress, Despise, Blackmail are cheaper.

Blessed Alliance has multiple uses and can be used at the same time if you can pay the mana.

Hope this helps mang

Sajomir The deck used to have 3 but they were actually harder to flip than expected. Since it flips at the end step the opponent always killed it beforehand. Of course there was always the Blessed Alliance gain 4 life trick, but I felt that Lambholt Pacifist  Flip was a much better card in the early game.

Sorry for bombarding you with comments, but I keep getting thoughts, possibly try Complete Disregard over Grasp of Darkness, Blessed Alliance and Anguished Unmaking are possible if you splash white. The Oath of Ajani beats out nissa in mana for the same affect. Natural Obsolescence might be good in the side, and Monstrous Onslaught could also be a nice finisher which can also be hit of Rishkar's Expertise.

2 Questions: 1) What's the plan for flipping Lone Rider  Flip? Is it just Blessed Alliance & Essence Extraction because I think that you'd rather play some of that more powerful removal in your sideboard.2) Can you slide in anything that flies to give some evasion for everything with Odric?

Here's one possible solution to both problems: Aethersphere Harvester can do 3 damage of lifelink in the air (Bonus points for also adding lifelink to Odric's abilities, AND Lone Rider can crew the Harvester if he can't profitably attack).

Also, there is no point in a Fumigate in the sideboard since you want to have a bunch of creatures out on the board. I would put in Blessed Alliance in it's place.
