Hi NV_1980 First of all thanks for your upvote and your suggestions.
You do make some good sugestions, some I've had considered before, others are new to me. Out of the ones I had considered, the main reason why I didn't buy the cards is pretty much their price tag, I would love to have Batterskull, Basilisk Collar, Enlightened Tutor and Umezawa's Jitte for example, but at the moment they are out of my deck budget.
As for land ramp I have to agree with you, it can be a huge problem with this deck, at the moment the only ramp card I have in the deck is Sword of the Animist, I've considered adding either (or both) Knight of the White Orchid / Kor Cartographer as once again Extraplanar Lens and Land Tax are out of my budget.
Once again, thank you for the suggestions, and I will have a look at your decks soon.

Hi Fuklaw, I like this deck and would like to build something similar; a few comments though:
Shouldn't you add some more land and/or ramp? A MTG decks usually contains at least 1/3 lands; even single color decks. In terms of ramp, I was thinking: Weathered Wayfarer, Oreskos Explorer, Knight of the White Orchid, Extraplanar Lens and/or Land Tax (an expensive option, I know, but soooo good).
In terms of equipment, have you also considered the following options: Armory of Iroas, Basilisk Collar, Batterskull, Blade of Selves, Bonesplitter, Champion's Helm, Chitinous Cloak, Darksteel Plate, Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip, Ogre's Cleaver, Stoneforge Masterwork, Trepanation Blade or Umezawa's Jitte?
Hope this helps!
P.S.: would you mind commenting on some of my decks?

LeaPlath i am not going to protect my choice to play Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip, i only play it because i think the card is awsome. i played Containment Priest before and replaced it with Hallowed Moonlight to sideboard inn against a token decks, lands and the normal decks you board inn Containment Priest inn and it gives me a card draw too. I know that i loose the card draw when i have 1 of my 2 Spirit of the Labyrinths in play, but i have not been much of a problem for me, and the extra manacost form Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is not a problem because i usually have enough lands to play it, and i often use Aether Vial to play creatures. My picks may not be better but when i made the deck i was trying to make a different version of Death & Taxes and this is my replacements so far.

Containment Priest > hallowed moonlight. Moonlight is shut down by your own Spirit and Thalia. Priest isn't and can be vialed in.

Thanks seshiro_of_the_orochi and Heretic_Dragoon for your comments! I was thinking about putting in Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip but I talked to a friend who has one and he said it is pretty difficult to make it work well. And I would throw in some white if I could but I don't really feel it is necessary, and it would just add some extra cards, kind of like why I took out Necrotic Ooze earlier on. And Seshiro I did end up swapping those two out, thank you very much for the suggestions.

Would you be so kind as to, in the Description section, explain what the theme/purpose/win-cons of this deck is/are? This in turn allows other people to better suggests ways to improve the deck. It looks like there's a lot going on in this deck so knowing what it is you want the deck to be (and what it currently IS) would make providing assistance much more worthwhile.
Just from what I can see here, it looks like you want to use Flying/Unblockable creatures to flip Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip for the win. If that is the route you want to take, then there are certainly ways to build upon that.
I'll check back later!
