Your deck isn't pure control, rather it is an aggro-control hybrid, which is fine.

Lets deal with the NO (counters) section of a control deck. The first cards I thought of when looking at your deck were Delay, Grimoire Thief and Countersquall but they might be more than you want to spend. Since your using creatures to exile Familiar's Ruse is budget friendly and gives you the chance to recast your creature and exile a new card. Judge's Familiar is a creature and a cheap evasive creature at that, so is probably worth consideration. Perplex Might work as a counter or tutor. Honorable mentions Dawn Charm (fog or conditional counter), Dash Hopes (a black counter, really) and Dissipate. You might want to think about other spells too Thought Scour, Vapor Snag, Appetite for Brains, Castigate and Transgress the Mind...

The creature side of my suggestions is much shorter, first up is two one drops Deadeye Tracker and Mardu Woe-Reaper, they have similar uses essentially sending cards back to exile. For two drops there is Brain Maggot, basically additional copies of Tidehollow Sculler. Now we jump a bit to the control finisher, your using The Eldest Reborn I'd suggest backing that up with Cryptic Serpent and maybe Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Finally Murk Strider is worth consideration as well.

I'm not expecting you to use all of these cards, rather I'm throwing out ideas that might be of use to you. Hopefully this is of help, have fun with your brew.

What is the interaction between Oracle of Dust and Murk Strider? Is it only if your opponents have something in exile?

Ok then, I have seen your card pool and I've seen lots of interesting cards.

As said before: Oblivion Strike, it's a too slow removal and you have tons of other things that exile, making it useless. Probably I'd change it with Dismember, Hero's Downfall or Go for the Throat; they do what you want them to do (destroy an opponent's creature) and they are faster and cheaper than the strike.

Other cards I would take in consideration:

Things I would consider as sideboard are:

Now, what I DON'T like of your deck:

  • Fathom Feeder, 2 specific mana to cast an easily destroyable creature. And it's ability costs really too much.

  • Oblivion Strike, I've already expressed my opinion on it.

  • Benthic Infiltrator, at first sight it seems good, due to it's "unblockable" effect, but is it really worth? it's a 1/4 (and so sometimes you would prefer to leave it as a blocker instead of attacking, thing that it's supposed to do), it costs 3 mana, so it will attack for the first time, we hope, on turn 4, doing just 1 damage to the opponent. You have better options than this.

Animate Dead, Necromancy, and Copy Enchantment might be kewl here. Also, eldrazi processors like Murk Strider and Oracle of Dust have a neat synergy with Astral Slide.

Nice deck!

Sun Titan Holy crap he is a must in this deck.

I'm just spit-balling here:

Felidar Guardian

Geralf's Mindcrusher or Jace's Mindseeker would be cool to go infinite with

Great Whale or Palinchron more bang for your buck (plus its nice to have options)

Knight of the White Orchid is a better Kor Cartographer

Phyrexian Ingester I'm not too sure about the interaction of repeated flashes, but it could work.

Murk Strider or better yet Ulamog's Reclaimer

HAHAHA I am definitely going to go and make a FLICKER DECK IM SO EXCITED. Thanks for the idea, man. I spent so much time looking these cars up I just can't not make my own deck! +10000

maxbuchmanmtg, Murk Strider is the weakest thing in this list, they would be first to go, if you have more than two copies, Mist Intruder is not a great card, but definitely cut the Murk Striders first as the mist intruders are actually a free cast off the reshapers. enjoy :)
