Perhaps the 2 Dryad Militant for 2 copies of Tidehollow Sculler? I think that Militant is a good card, but perhaps better in the sideboard in case you have to face things like Lingering Souls or Snapcaster Mage.

In my opinion, discard is never a bad thing in any matchup. Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize remove all kind of threats, whether creatures or non-creature spells, so it is good against aggro, control and basically anything in between. I would probably say that they work best against midrange decks like jund or abzan because Inquisition of Kozilek alone is capable of removing their biggest threats (Tarmogoyf, Liliana of the Veil and Grim Flayer). Kinda depends on your local meta too.

Tarmogoyf??? JK, this deck sucks with him. No Lingering Souls though? Thats value town

Lingering Souls can single handedly take over games. It slows aggro, chumps midrange, it's resilient value, works with Ensnaring Bridge and pushes extra damage through.

Myth Realized has sorcery speed protection but really what decks are playing sorcery speed removal?

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.

-4 Myth Realized +4 Lingering Souls

-3 Smallpox + 2 Blackmail & 1 Fatal Push

Cutting Smallpox you can afford to cut some lands to MB Ensnaring Bridge, it's personal taste though.

lagotripha, I like Lingering Souls as much as the next man, and would like to have it in the deck. Maybe I'll try to shoehorn it in here somewhere :-D

I think you would benefit from playing Delver of Secrets  Flip in the deck. Or, in other words, play more like a Delver deck with Death's Shadow rather than a Zoocide deck with control elements. Trying to win on turn 2 consistently in a large tournament is going to be a problem. You're going up against a variety of different decks. If you're going all-in on a combo, you're gonna eventually lose to a deck like Jund Midrange or Grixis Control when you inevitably run into them at a large event.

One of the guys at my shop has done really well playing such a list. You can play a turn 1 Delver of Secrets  Flip or Thoughtseize, then lock your opponent out of the game with Remands, Mana Leak, and Stubborn Denial. The best part is you have Death's Shadow to inevitably wreck your opponent's day.

Here is what (I think) his decklist looks like:

That's one of the reasons I would play Esper Death's Shadow over the regular all-in version of the deck. Right now, you're not taking full advantage of the colors you're in except for Snapcaster Mage, Path to Exile, and Lingering Souls.

My suggestions may be too much to test in a short time frame if you're planning on going to a large event soon. I agree with APPLE01DOJ that your sideboard needs work. It's the best way to prepare for a large event without changing much.

I'd suggest something like:

2x Stony Silence
2x Kor Firewalker
1x Spellskite
1x Lost Legacy
1x Hibernation
2x Inquisition of Kozilek
1x Anguished Unmaking
1x Timely Reinforcements
2x Countersquall
1x Murderous Cut
1x Nihil Spellbomb

Splashing into white without Lingering Souls feels like a but of a waste.
