Glacial Fortress Discussion

You have a couple of non-standard cards in here. Prairie Stream, Give No Ground, Port Town, Shrine of the Forsaken Gods,Declaration in Stone are not standard legal. Replace Prairie Stream with Glacial Fortress.

I really like this deck! I'd be interested to see how it would play out. I do have a few suggestions:
I think you are running too many basics. I'd cut 2 basics and one Hallowed Fountain for 3 more Glacial Fortress. You're already dealing damage to yourself with Noxious Revival and most decks don't run more than two Hallowed Fountain anyway.
As a previous commenter mentioned, this deck is a little low on hard answers. Instead of running Remand I'd run another Condescend, just because the Scry ability is great for this deck, and then maybe a hard counterspell like Logic Knot or even Cryptic Command.

Your land base needs some work, I'm assuming you're on a budget which is why you're not running Celestial Colonnade, but Hallowed Fountain and Flooded Strand would be great in your mana pool, and Glacial Fortress is super cheap so there's no reason you shouldn't be running that over a second-rate dual land like Port Town. Also unless I'm missing something there's no way for you to cast Akroma, Angel of Fury, and even if there was that card is meant for the sideboard. If you want a big scary win condition white has some awesome planeswalkers. Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar would be fantastic in this deck.

In terms of straight up suggestions for your current build, I do not think vial is particularly awesome here. I would switch it for 4 Cloudshift. Additionally, detention sphere + flickerwisp + cloudshift means you can handle any nonland permanent and if any extra copies come in, you can deal with them too. I would play more d-sphere, probably in place of 2 phantasmal image, which do not work with blinking.
Additionally, since you are playing Nimbus maze in your mana base, I would include some of the cycling lands from amonkhet and some Glacial Fortress.
You certainly do not need the taxing sideboard. You need to be interactive and play as much as possible at instant speed, so some form of a more controlling sideboard would be great. Negate and Field of Ruin and Archeomancer to brink back your spells is great.
4 Leonin Relic-Warder should take care of any artifact/enchantment based decks.
Your worst enemy is hand-disruption. A really good SB card that is super expensive is Leyline of Sanctity that just says no to a lot of decks.

These are the things I think your deck needs to fix, if you want to make it competitive.
(I can't tell if this deck can go 5-0, as I don't know your local meta.)
The number of lands you have is too small. I often had to mulligan, as I had one or none in my opening hand.
You need some lands that will help you colour fix. Tri coloured decks just don't work without these, at the moment.
I would do something like this:
2x Aether Hub
3x Concealed Courtyard
3x Drowned Catacomb
3x Evolving Wilds
3x Glacial Fortress
You need better removal than Fatal Push.
If your Opponent has large Creatures they will get away with their game plan, and overrun you, particularly if they have efficient, early removal.
A deck like Stompy Whompy Dinos outraces you.
Vraska's Contempt would work better for you, I feel.
- Counter spells
You have access to , so you should use Counter spells in your deck.
Cancel is cheap, but so is Admiral's Order.
It might feel as though you will weaken your deck by taking out some Token focused cards for other spells, but in point of fact you will strengthen it.
Flame-Chained wrecked your deck by Sideboarding in Lost Legacy, and Gonti, Lord of Luxury. If you had a Counter Spell in hand, you could have stopped those cards from taking your stuff.
For a Sideboard, I would do something like this:
2x Bontu's Last Reckoning - board wipes everything, but you can Embalm your Creatures. Deals with Carnage Tyrant.
2x Dispossess - removes annoying Artifacts.
3x Essence Scatter - Counter their biggest Creature.
3x Lost Legacy - take their Approach of the Second Sun.
4x Negate - stop Planeswalkers, Approach of the Second Sun, board wipes, etc.
1x Vizier of Many Faces - also good against Carnage Tyrant, Ghalta, Primal Hunger, and just about any annoying Creature.
This assumes you have a Counter spell and Vraska's Contempt in your Mainboard.
Hope that feedback helps.

Perhaps 1501vandgarr, because I was thinking of a variant on this deck of playing miracles. Since now with Jace, and Search for Azcanta Flip (I have a playset of these now too) I think Entreat the Angels, Temporal Mastery, and Terminus could be quite effective, and Opt could certainly have a place too.
I might build this deck here, but I will likely start off with a more budget manabase involving a playset of Glacial Fortress' along with more basics. I only have 1 Jace atm unfortunately and he has spiked hard, so I will have to see what I get from Masters 25 which I might buy a box of if the set is favourable.
