Leyline of Sanctity Discussion

APPLE01DOJ, thanks for the feedback. -4 Myth Realized for +4 Lingering Souls is an interesting idea. Could you elaborate more on this? I am worried this would make my deck a bit slower. Though I definitely see some benefits in being able to play around stuff like Chalice of the Void and Leyline of Sanctity.

A lot of great info. I would like to adopt most of your suggestions but will first have to add cards to the shopping list. In particular, I'll look to get my hands on a couple Weathered Wayfarer and a full playset of Path to Exile. Once I get my hands on them, what would you recommend I cut to put them in? Student of Warfare, Celestial Mantle, Sphere of Safety, and Authority of the Consuls have been great additions that have won me games and I'm hesitant to remove them.
Gold Myr seems interesting. I'll definitely try it out. I will cut Heliod, God of the Sun for other cards. Akroma, Angel of Wrath has been worth it so far as an extra body on field, although I'll keep Akroma's Memorial in mind.
Great sideboard help. Rest in Peace, Mirran Crusader, and Stony Silence will definitely get in there, as well as Leyline of Sanctity if and when I can afford it. Is there any reason why you suggested Cast Out over cheaper removal like Banishing Light? Stasis Snare is already present for Flash.

Also in terms of sideboard you want to be able to hate on other matchups. Rest in Peace, Grafdigger's Cage, and Relic of Progenitus enable graveyard hate for the dredge matchup. Leyline of Sanctity for burn. Keep Mirran Crusader but cut the other knights, Odric, Lunarch Marshal is personal preference. As is Stony Silence is a staple of white sideboards. And then from there prioritize removal and converting to aggro. Cast Out for removal, and Mirran Crusader for aggro.

Hoo boy... List time!
CreaturesYou have a lot of high impact creatures that, without a doubt can take the game on their own, but I see that you have no late game big creature removal. I would suggest taking out the high cmc cards like Angelic Skirmisher and Aurelia, the Warleader and replace them with Figure of Destiny or Dragonmaster Outcast. I would also suggest taking out Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and replacing it with a better one: Gisela, the Broken Blade because the broken blade is much cheaper, has first strike, and lifelink. If you are going to run that, I would also suggest Bruna, the Fading Light because, you know, meld. The purpose of aggro decks, which you labeled this as, is to overwhelm opponents early before you run out of gas, so you need lower cmc creatures, haste preferred. Goblin Guide is a perfect example.
ManabaseAlthough aggro decks aren't as mana demanding as control decks, they still need more dual lands. I would suggest taking out Boros Garrison and replacing it with Sacred Foundry. Shock lands are great because of the potential mana advantage that you can get with this card. Manlands are also great, and I think that Looming Spires would be a perfect fit in this deck. A few mountains and plains are great, but fetchlands are better.
Wincons:Your deck does have many cards that take the game, but I think that it needs a sold wincon. Most decks have 2 parts to it, the wincon, and the supporting cards. If you are running blue, your wincon might be Thing in the Ice Flip and you supporting cards may be bounce and counter sells. If you are going to run Gisela and Bruna, their melded versions can quite easily win you the game. I think that for a wincon, Transcendent Master would be a great add to your deck. Lightning Bolt is a great card and so is Path to Exile. Deflecting Palm can also be a great instant if you use it properly.
SuggestionsI think that overall, you should use cheaper cmc creatures, and maybe some planeswalkers like Ajani Vengeant and more enchantments. I see that you are lacking in sideboards, so for a start, I would suggest putting in Revoke Existence and Leyline of Sanctity.
ps. take out Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas. once you play with her, you'll feel her underwhelmingnessess
Sorry if I sound condescending but I just needed to get these points across. Good deck tho +1

Since I now mainboard one copy of Blessed Alliance, could the BA in the sideboard become a Celestial Purge or a third Leyline of Sanctity? I'm leaning toward the Leyline because of how bad our Burn MU is.

You have to ask yourself, what matches are cards like Thought Scour going to improve??? None? Okay, it's not worth the SB space. The SB should not be deck extensions but cards that improve your match ups against things your weak against. In your case Control of both flavors. I'd also imagine your Burn match is pretty tough.
So for decks like BG/x I would recommend Suppression Field, Bile Blight/Marrow Shards, and stronger grave hate like Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace. Leyline of Sanctity and Pithing Needle are also valid choices.
As far as traditional control goes, you're really in a bad position. The best SB cards against it are in green (Choke, Thrun, the Last Troll) and the manland game plan isn't particularly viable for you either. Lastly your threat density isn't enough to not have to worry about counters. Hopefully someone else can offer up a viable option for you.
Burn is an easy fix. Dragon's Claw.
A few other cards I would suggest to consider are Anguished Unmaking as a 1 of, Illness in the Ranks, more copies of Stony Silence, and possibly Hurkyl's Recall (can be great vs Affinity but also Infect).

I've got both Thalias and Blind Obedience, as well.
I think generally, I've got a bit of a lower curve, so Gaddock Teeg would turn off less of the deck. I wouldn't know what to cut for the Cartouche. I run Madcap Skills, but not Angelic Destiny, Runes of the Deus, Holy Mantle, Gift of Immortality, or Ghostly Prison, preferring instead to run stuff like Snake Umbra, Keen Sense, Ancestral Mask, Blessing of the Nephilim, etc.

LeaPlath thanks for the input! I knew this deck really lacked direction going in, which is why I put it up for help. I'm fairly new to constructing a deck so I wanted to get it under the eyes of people who are more experienced at it. The three foundation cards are Isochron Scepter, Silence, and Grand Abolisher. The initial idea was to counter a spell heavy control deck that constantly threw out counter spells. Getting out Grand Abolisher provides a safety bubble to cast spells within my turn.
Also with this deck being on the artifacty side, you think it would be better suited to go more artifacts and add in a Darksteel Forge? With that in mind I could swap out Elspeth, Knight-Errant for Saheeli Rai and/or Tezzeret the Seeker to help get things out onto the battlefield.
Any and all suggestions are welcome.
