Thanks toastySmorc. I may decide to cut Dissolve and Disperse for more burn but I'm unable to get my hands on more bolts at the time. Also, Counterspell is banned in my playgroup so that's not an option unfortunately. As for Pieces of the Puzzle I may decide to put it back in, the only problem I had with it was it putting my key creatures in the yard, and it won't let me draw Pyromancer Ascension off of it either. However, depending on how it plays I may put it back in. Thanks for the suggestions as always!

Hi there. Deck looks a lot more streamlined now which is always good, but there is still room to improve.
Cut: Magma Jet. From what I understand, you like this card for its ability to dump away bad cards, but Ponder and Preordain just does that so much more efficiently. They cost 1 less and replaces themselves.
Personally, I don't feel like the Satyr Firedancer does enough, because you only run like 6 burn spells. Would replace them with Nivix Cyclops or even Monastery Swiftspear. They trigger off of all your spells and have a lot more snowball potential.

Hey, love to see someone getting into UW control. First off, to get a more competitive build will be a little tight on the budget.
First off, your mana base needs to be better. Some great budget options are Prairie Stream, Glacial Fortress, and Port Town. The reason you should consider these is that they have a chance of coming into play untapped, and while control can generally survive a few tapped lands, having as many as you do now would be deadly. Temple of Enlightenment is one of my favorite tapped lands though. I have personally been very impressed with Field of Ruin over Ghost Quarter. Once you're able to put a good amount of money into it, go for Mystic Gate (only one), Flooded Strand, Hallowed Fountain, and Celestial Colonnade.
I'm a big fan of big flying angel win conditions. Torrential Gearhulk is fantastic, but just make sure you're running enough instants to make it worth it. Nyx-Fleece Ram is definitely a sideboard card, don't run it in your main deck. 4 Wall of Omens is a pretty good defensive option.
Dissolve is my favorite counterspell, but you shouldn't be running it in modern. 4 Mana Leak. 4 Remand, and 3-4 Cryptic Command are the usual counters to run. Disallow is pretty interesting though. You should not be running Condemn, it was some pretty early Death's Shadow sideboard tech, but there are better options. You will definitely need to invest in a playset of Path to Exile, luckily they're at a pretty low price right now. Instead of Jace's Ingenuity, cantrips like Serum Visions, Opt, or Think Twice would be better options.
I would not run Divination or Ugin's Insight. Your board wipes are pretty spicy, but a little slow. Supreme Verdict is the most typical UW board wipe. Wrath of God and Terminus are other great options. Terminus is a personal favorite.
Planeswalkers you should consider running over the ones you currently have are Jace, Architect of Thought because his +1 will protect you quite well while the -2 is a fantastic source of card advantage. Elspeth, Sun's Champion will win you the game if she goes unanswered, pumping out little dudes with a board wipe at the ready. Narset Transcendent shines in instant/sorcery heavy decks. Gideon Jura is another great planeswalker. All of his abilities fall into control very well, saving you from attacks, removing opponent's creatures, and beating face.
Other great cards to consider; Geist of Saint Traft, Vendilion Clique, Entreat the Angels, Secure the Wastes, Faerie Conclave, Sphinx's Revelation, Baneslayer Angel, Dispel, Spell Pierce, Spell Snare, and Jace Beleren

Hi, thank you all so much for taking the time to help me with this deck.
I think I can go two copies of Dissolve and two copies of Disallow in place of cancel. I wanna add Cryptic Command, but I wanna keep this deck budget friendly. So, unfortunately I can't. However, I do feel that Reliquary Tower is necessary in this deck. So I think I'll add two copies of that.
The problem with Serum Visions is that it's a sorcery. I only wanna add instances in this deck.
Hyperalgialysis, to answer your question, it is basically a slow mill deck. Dictate of kruphix, Mikokoro, Jaces and Geier are there to slowly mill cards from my opponents library, while I sit there counter everything. That's why I'm playing Learn from the Past to shuffle my graveyard in case I mill myself too much. My second win condition is obviously Thing in the Ice Flip. And the third win condition is Guile.

Agree with the above, Dissolve is strictly better than Cancel.
