love the deck but there is not much removal so a couple Oblivion Ring's would not be bad

Mass Calcify blows up all your equipment. Why not just use Wrath of God or Day of Judgment? Oblivion Ring is flexible removal you can tutor for. Buried Ruin is a nice utility land that can retrieve a key piece of equipment that's been destroyed. Argivian Find has the same effect. Open the Armory is a second Steelshaper's gift. Silverblade Paladin is a second Fireshrieker effect and a good voltron target in its own right. On that note: why no Fireshrieker--it effectively cuts the game in half? Lightning Greaves prevents you from equipping anything else to your own dudes; replace with Swiftfoot Boots. Mother of Runes is a must run.

Land Tax, Path to Exile, and Jitte should not be "maybes"; they should be in the deck.

It really depends on your budget, but if it isn't an issue, then definitely run Leyline of Sanctity over Ivory Mask if you can afford it. Banishing Light will up your Oblivion Ring count to 8.

So much ramp, and nothing to spend it on? I have a good suggestion for you for all that ramp: Enduring Ideal. Then every turn you can just fetch out your answers.

I'd up the heralds to 4. They cheapen everything in your deck.

Good luck!

You don't have a lot of consistency to be honest. You might want more duplicates of the same card and not so many one-ofs. I wouldn't play a card really unless I had at least two or three of them. Mana curve is another thing to consider all though yours isn't that bad. And I would assume you wouldn't want to make the deck too strong and over priced :P Maybe 4 Vampire Nighthawk. More Anguished Unmaking, more Dark Ritual, more Blood Baron of Vizkopa. could focus on devotion with 4x Gray Merchant of Asphodel Gift of Orzhova. I dont think you need life link enchantments, should just use life link creatures. Anyway some cool and cheap cards to also consider maybe Obzedat, Ghost Council Unmake Oblivion Ring Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Debt to the Deathless Crypt Ghast Victim of Night Murder Tribute to Hunger Mortify

I get your interest in not overspending. It's something that every MTG player has to fight themselves over (myself included). Path to Exile doesn't give the opponent health but does give them a land. However, giving the opponent a land is worth removing a creature from the game completely for one mana.

The other two peeps above gave really good suggestions. Path to Exile, Remand, and Serum Visions are kind of your go-to in U/W Control, and then from there you grab what you want. Detention Sphere is really sexy for heavy removal, and Oblivion Ring is good as well.

Darth_Savage mentioned using Wall of Omens and I agree. It's a must-have for early games.

Like Memphismaymagic5 said (although I shall paraphrase), Mana Leak is the basic bitch of counterspells. Cheap, easy, and fun, but there are so many different counterspells that which one you use is dependent on person preference and what you're up against. I am personally a fan of having a set of Rune Snag.

One thing, though, is that you should boost your landbase to 21-22 lands. Any less and you'll risk mana drought, and you don't want more than that unless you are consistently trying to drop CMC 5+ stuff.

The great thing about U/W Control is that once you've got the basic stuff down, there are several ways in which you can take it. I recommend taking a look at other decks, seeing what people are doing, and figure out what it is that you want to do with your deck. Then go from there.
