I had Teferi, Temporal Archmage The Chain Veil Contagion Engine in the deck and you're right they are very good.

The issue i have with the Tutors is i only have 99 cards and with access to real tutors that get any card I most likely will pass on those. Demonic Tutor > Call the Gatewatch Fore example.

As for the Oaths...I really want to use these cards, even just for theme. But doping something will be hard. The deck is very "pillow fort" with the idea of fending off 4-6 (95% of which are creature decks) player games. In my experiences Planeswalkers draw a good deal of agro. I'm looking for a way to mitigate that creature agro and the oaths don't do much in that department.

Supreme Verdict could replace Wrath of God or Damnation trading the counter spell ability for regeneration.

Now I really like Djeru, With Eyes Open I may sub him in for another creature. Most likely Stuffy Doll

I would personally put Teferi, Temporal Archmage for his neg 10 becuase of how useful it is for planswalkers abilities to be instants. I would aslo considier The Chain Veil so you can get planswalker rolling along faster. You might could aslo useOath of Nissa Oath of Gideon Oath of Jace Oath of Liliana and Oath of Ajani. I know you have a few sideboarded but they are quit usefull. You could also use Djeru, With Eyes Open to get a planswalker you need and keep them alive. Two more fetch planswalker spells areCall the Gatewatch and Deploy the Gatewatch. You can also use Contagion Engine Fuel for the Cause and Tezzeret's Gambit for extra proliferate. A good side board spell is Supreme Verdict. Sorry for the long comment hope this helps.

YOU MUST ADD Captain Sisay, Teferi, Temporal Archmage AND Rhystic Study! They are WAY too broken not to play.

Cut Simic Nissa, Cut Cursed Garruk, Cut your gideons unless you are playing more of them, Cut all your jace's but unraveler, Cut Lord Of Innistrad, Cut Tezz if you aren't going to play more rocks, Cut Planar Bridge, Cut Pernicous deed, Replace vindicate with Utter End Cut Grim Affliction, Cut Putrefy, Replace Day Of judgement with Wrath of God, and finally cut Steady Progress. Most of these cards your walkers should be replacements for or aren't good in a walker deck.

Also I'm not a huge fan of the Eldrazi titans (blightsteel included) because they are just no fun. Walker decks are powerful and fun.

Cards to add or at least think aboutCounter magic of any kind

If you have any questions about why let me know.

the volleys are terrible, and this deck wont be fast unless you get a perfect opening hand. Call the Gatewatch is better for searching out planeswalkers than Diabolic Tutor. you need better removal than just "deal 3 damage" type cards. attacking with Gilder Bairn is too risky. an opponent will just block and kill it.

Are you an MTG goldfish fan too? Also, I like the control theme, that will definitely help keep gids alive. For suggestions, how about Call the Gatewatch or even Deploy the Gatewatch? They are expensive, but control of all things should be able to handle it.

Definitely needs Call the Gatewatch, and Throne of Geth can be good since it can sac itself

Sunscour? Martyr of Sands as a hate against fast aggressive strategies?
Call the Gatewatch or Thalia's Lancers
