You have so many ways to make use of extra mana, and lots of creatures. Cryptolith Rite would be amazing here, i suggest adding 2-3 copies. It can help you really go over the top by generating a lot of extra mana.
Heroic Intervention, while a cool effect, isn't something i would want more than 1-2 copies of in my maindeck. Keeping up 2 mana is a very real cost, and it doesn't even protect you from Engulf the Shore or Yahenni's Expertise.
Compulsory Rest is an odd choice for a removal spell, since it doesn't really answer creatures with powerful static abilities like Metallic Mimic, Lord of the Accursed, Winding Constrictor or Tireless Tracker. You might want to consider Stasis Snare or Declaration in Stone to replace it.

not sure why Detonate and Shattering Spree are in the main, those are sideboard cards (and dead draws against infect?)

Blessed Alliance is a more versatile form of Celestial Flare and isnt as taxing on your manabase.

not sure how your creature base helps with infect, most of them are too small to have any impact.

Compulsory Rest, Prison Term, Reverence, Path to Exile, Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo, Archangel of Tithes, Aurelia's Fury,

also aside from using burn/reflect spells, how do you win?

Almost forgot: An opponent played Compulsory Rest last night as United Customer Service. LMAO.

Thanks for the comment InfuriatedBrute. I agree that Gideon's Intervention would be a great sideboard addition. Obviously great for combo, but also great against Heart of Kiran since, as you mentioned, this deck struggles with fliers. I'd consider Compulsory Rest over dec in stone, but would keep dec in stone in the board as the former is terrible against vehicles. I'll have to do some playtesting with Toolcraft Exemplar. It is definitely a good card as long as I can turn it on consistently (which is currently dependend on clues). I also like the card draw so that is why the Refiner is in there for the most part. I agree about Serpopard. Good sideboard against control, but playtesting has been underwhelming otherwise. You think Selfless Spirit or Spell Queller or I could even do something like Aerial Responder as replacement?? Thanks again!

Gideon's Intervention kills most combo and doubles as an overpriced Pacifism. I also prefer Compulsory Rest over Declaration. Obviously a sideboard would help. I think trading Rogue Refiner for Toolcraft Exemplar fits your deck more. And I think having a single flyer would be nice (probably the WU spirit), and maybe move Serpopard to sideboard to make way. Decent deck overall.

clayperce on Best Amonkhet card for sealed ...

Ok, Exemplar of Strength is my vote for best Common/Uncommon, and Glorybringer for best overall.

Here are some more thoughts though on my favorite Commons/Uncommons:

Draw well!

InfuriatedBrute, this isn't Amonkhet updated quite yet, and probably won't be until the set actually releases (I still haven't completely built this model of the deck yet for budget reasons), though I'm not a big fan of Compulsory Rest. Seems like a worse version of Pacifism. Gideon's Intervention might work for the deck, but I'd have to test it out because my mana cost is already decently high for what this deck is. Thanks for the feedback!
