I would take out Phyrexian Rebirth , AEther Adept , Serra Angel , and/or Elixir of Immortality . Lavinia of the Tenth can be good in builds with cards like Cloudshift , Ghostly Flicker , Restoration Angel and Flickerwisp , but here, she's not that great. She could be taken out too, if need be. Also, I'd recommend Detention Sphere , Meddling Mage , Frost Titan , Azorius Charm , Drogskol Reaver , Celestial Colonnade (REALLY GOOD, but pretty expensive), Geist of Saint Traft , Echoing Truth , Path to Exile , Vapor Snag , and Jace, Architect of Thought , to name a lot. These are just suggestions, keep in mind. Obviously you can't do all of them. You might also want to consider adding another color like Black or Red. Esper and Jeskai Control tend to be better than Azorius, just because they have more options. With UWR Control, you have access to Lightning Bolt and Lightning Helix , Boros Charm , Jeskai Charm , Anger of the Gods , Ajani Vengeant , and Thundermaw Hellkite . Esper control, I don't know as much about, but you have access to discard like Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek , as well as removal like Doom Blade , Go for the Throat , and Hero's Downfall . Hope some of my suggestions gave you something worthwhile!
Personally I'm a huge fan of Martial Glory instead of Titan's Strength , also, I'd put in an extra two Coordinated Assault and a final Boros Charm because pumping Fabled Hero and Anax and Cymede at the same time, multiple times, often leads to an OHK.
What do you think of Boros Charm in here? It takes care of board wipe threats and can potentially accelerated the win one turn w/ the double strike option.
I'll take everything into consideration and thanks for your input. I never looked at Mindswipe that way and I agree maybe Mana Leak would serve better. As for Restoration Angel shes in there because I do plan on acquiring some Snapcaster Mage for the board and she would have synergy with him.
Thanks for the feedback!
What decks with the lots of discard are you playing against? If it's 8Rack, I'd suggest you run either Loxodon Smiter in Small Zoo or Obstinate Baloth if you're doing a more midrangey build, but never as a 2-of in your board. If you're running a Small Zoo build you're deck is generally good against discard, because most of the threats you play are cheap anyway, so usually you can get something to stick before their discard engine gets going full till, but if it gets problematic, Leyline of Sanctity also works well to nullify their discard spells. If you're main concern is Liliana of the Veil , Celestial Purge , Lightning Bolt and Boros Charm answers her well.
Thanks for the +1, MachineAge. Yes, Boros Charm , we will miss thee. I've been considering Ajani's Presence as a replacement. Though it's no Charm, it might be able to at least protect a couple creatures.
I guess we shouldn't be arguing about whether Swiftspear or Guide is better, because I think you should be playing both. It is my opinion that Monastery Swiftspear is almost certainly better than Lightning Helix in this deck, so that can go should you want to keep Boros Charm .
Think about it a little. Swiftspear is worse on turns 1 and 6+, but almost always better in between. When you don't have Eidolon, it's a great deal better than Guide and can attack into many more creatures.
Regarding Boros Charm : The last mode is completely useless and the second mode is marginal at best. Two mana for four damage is a little worse than 1 mana for 3 damage, even if it is a better topdeck. Remember that you are playing to kill them before you are in topdeck mode, so you want to be casting cheap spells as much as possible. Even in the early game, you want to cast multiple spells per turn if at all possible.
