DanowarElf - Eyes Everywhere could be handy, I just need to figure out if it's better than another card in the list. The scry only at upkeep means I get to fix my draws, but it doesn't help my bigger aim of trying to keep the top card something I can cast using Elsha of the Infinite. As for Blasphemous Act, it's a great boardwipe in red, but since I am playing white, I opted for Supreme Verdict, which is non-conditional and cannot be countered, and Day of Judgment and Time Wipe which can deal with wide boards from opponents but let me keep a useful creature like Elsha of the Infinite herself or something like Niv-Mizzet, Parun or Monastery Mentor. Also, Cyclonic Rift clears only my opponents things, and gets rid of noncreatures as well, all at instant speed, thus warranting that as worthwhile. Blasphemous Act is a fine include, but I haven't found myself missing it so far, and if I needed another boardwipe I would probably add Wrath of God first.
I generally prefer the talismans over the signets, as the mana is usable on its own. If you cast a talisman and you have no lands untapped, and then the next card on top of your deck is something like Ponder or Sol Ring or Brainstorm, you can cast it too. Not the case with the signets. Also, if you had say two islands and a Talisman of Conviction and needed to play Narset, Parter of Veils, that's no problem. If the talisman was a Boros Signet, however, you couldn't cast the Narset. That may not be the best example, because you can argue the other way too; if you need to cast a spell with RW in its cost and you have two islands and a talisman, no can do. Was just the best example I could think of off the top of my head. The difference between the two is very small though, and the downside of needing to pay 1 life if you need a specific color is irrelevant in 90%+ of cases.

Erst mal 3 relativ simple Vorschläge:
Rest in Piece muss ins SB.
Celestial Purge würde ich fürs Wishboard ein Mal spielen.
Monastery Mentor als SB Option gegen die Creature Decks ist vielleicht ganz gut hier.
Hier nochmal ein etwas ausgefallenerer Gedanke: Die Meta ist voll mit guten, blauen Permanents, besonders blaue Walker wie Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Teferi, Time Raveler , Narset, Parter of Veils und dem unsäglichen Oko, Thief of Crowns , der neuerdings überall gespielt wird. Die wirst du mit deinem jetzigen Deck nicht wirklich los. Und Council's Judgment ist ein bisschen langsam. Wie wäre es also mit einem kleinen Rot Splash für Red Elemental Blast bzw. Pyroblast ? Als schöner Nebeneffekt tötet das auch Ice-Fang Coatl oder Delver of Secrets Flip usw.

Also, there are SOME card draw effects in white- Mentor of the Meek effects exist. Almost solely for white.

In rough order of how much I like them:
I recently saw a deck based around Haunted Dead that played Prized Amalgam + other graveyard shenanigans, Fiery Temper , and Elder Deep-Fiend in Pioneer, so that was pretty cool and synergistic although not a standard two card combo.

Legendary Creature - Bird Monk
Instant and sorcery spells you cast cost less to cast.
Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, create a 1/1 white Monk creature token with prowess. Then you may draw a card, and if you do discard a card
Legendary Monastery Mentor

Grubbernaut I assume just like most control decks vs ramp. Hope they don't have it and accept it as a bad matchup. Obviously we can't counter everything and those nasty cast triggers can be tough. maybe Monastery Mentor in the side as well as lyra could let us but just aggressive enough to race.

MOnks are sweet.
First, this isn't standard tho, it's either Modern or Pioneer.
If you have dual lands put them in, the temples are pretty reasonable. I'd trade out the Dragon's Eye Sentry for Gods Willing , so you can protect your guys, also lose the Jeskai Students, since they are just vanilla prowess. They don't really bring anything else to the table.

The short answer: fetch lands. Everyone was playing hyper-powered 3+colored decks. There was also the scourge of standard at the time: Siege Rhino . Fate Reforged introduced the Whisperwood Elemental and Monastery Mentor decks. Dragons brought in cards like Atarka's Command making fast aggro decks prevalent. The Dragonlords also gave control a big boost. Plus at some point in that time-frame there was a Rally the Ancestors deck performing well in Standard. Origins introduced Hangarback Walker and the flip walkers, all of which (besides Chandra) saw play.
Basically BFZ came in and outside of Gideon, nothing could really crack into any of these decks. Even Ulamog was relatively underplayed until Khans rotated. Once OGW arrived and Khans/Fate rotated, BFZ block started seeing play. However, once SOI block arrived, BFZ block started falling to the wayside again outside of the Gideon/Nissa tokens deck.
With all of that said, my favorite standard deck of all time was spawned because of BFZ. I played a W/B eldrazi processor control deck and it was super fun.
