Regal Caracal Discussion

Argy What did you mean about not being allowed to ID at FNM level? Don't the MtG Tournament Rules allow you to draw at any sanctioned tournament (which any FNM should be)?
x12721 I had to think for a bit before I worked out what seemed off about your deck. Then I realised that you have no sweepers in the mainboard. I highly reccomend some number of sweepers. Probably 3-4 main and then none side (2 Fumigate and 1-2 Settle the Wreckage ). The reason for this is that control decks which go 1-for-1 with opponents (as your deck does) fold to decks which make lots of creatures. That's why I played grixis instead of UB last season - it had a better matchup against the aggro and token decks.
If you add sweepers to the main, I would probably move at least 1, maybe both Vona's Hunger to the side, or maybe cut one altogether because 2 seems a little clunky to me. I also think that Dovin Baan is poor in general, and isn't particularly strong in this deck more than otherwise.
Finally, I think your sideboard is a little sub-par. You should definitely have 2 Authority of the Consuls and some number of either Regal Caracal or Lyra Dawnbringer. Given that the meta has adjusted to Lyra, I would suggest Caracals. I don't think you really need 2 Nezahal, Primal Tide. They are a house against control, but you also need to run enough denial still.
Unwind is a cool spell, but I don't think you need it as well as the 3 Negate. Probably play another copy of Duress though, because it's arguably the most impactful card against control. I would also recommend a Sorcerous Spyglass because it is amazing. You also probably need some number of disenchant effects, so either Invoke the Divine or Forsake the Worldly.
Finally, other sideboard cards include Doomfall, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Lost Legacy if you are worried about Approach (although I think it is less necessary at the moment), and Arguel's Blood Fast which is great.
I know that I have suggested a lot of sideboard cards (more than you have room for), so sorry for that. I basically took the most impactful cards from my UW and Grixis sideboards and suggested them.
Also, sorry for the really long post, I didn't originally intend it to be this long. Also sorry if it sounds like I don't think your deck is good, that isn't the case. I just think it needs a little tweaking.

Really appreciate the feedback Chasedrk1, will take some of the suggestions into account, with some explanation below for certain card choices.
I admit that Unsummon and Gideon's Reproach seem weak, but they are mainly to serve as early game non-permanent based removal. Seal Away is sideboarded and these cards are in place due to Urza's Ruinous Blast wiping nonlegendary permanents, so the removal suite for the whole deck has been focused more toward the few non-enchantment based removal that exists early for U/W, Unsummon in particular being a weak inclusion primarily chosen to slow decks such as Green Monsters and Red/Green Aggro long enough for turn 4 or 5 wraths, especially in regards to needing an answer on the draw for turn 1 Llanowar Elves. It also has some light synergy as far as getting additional value out of a History of Benalia or saving a crucial Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage or other creature.
I'm trying to stay away from Approach of the Second Sun as I prefer the creature based strategy of U/W Historic over the alt-win conditon of U/W Approach. Search for azcanta while a great card does lose some potency when in a deck not focused on Approach, which is why I went very weak on card draw, though I do absolutely agree that it is almost certainly lacking too much and will benefit from Glimmer of Genius.
Regal Caracal is in the sideboard as a replacement for Lyra Dawnbringer post-board, as the meta is shifting towards boards containing answers such as Crushing Canopy and Fight with Fire that struggle against the multiple, ground based bodies of Regal Caracal. Cataclysmic Gearhulk was also considered, but Abrade being so inclusive also limited the amount of Artifact Creatures I wanted to depend on.
Thanks again for the help.

Just a couple quick takes:
Gideon's Reproach should be replaced with Seal Away4 Blink of an Eye and possibly no Unsummon would be wise, Unsummon is a combat trick card usually for tempo decks & this isn't that. I would mainboard 1 Fumigate & SB 1.Not sure that Gideon of the Trials is the best decision here for its 3 slot. Perhaps a 4th History of Benalia, Benalish Marshal or Kinjalli's Sunwing for more disruption & evasion. Merfolk Trickster is a great card, 4 in the Mainboard here seems to be to much though. Field of Ruin can be run up to 3 copies in a deck like this. it will assist you in many ways including shuffling in an Approach of the Second Sun (which would make more sense in your sideboard than Regal Caracal I believe.
Card Draw or filtering is missing/anemic really. one of the best tag teams are Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - Search for Azcanta Flip - Approach of the Second Sun - Glimmer of Genius. I feel like these cards are staples in U/W right now every bit as important as Settle the Wreckage, Seal Away, Cast Out, & Lyra Dawnbringer.

Sinner2000 thanks for the advice :) :). When creating this deck I initially considered Oketra's Monument but considering the deck wants to win as quickly as possible I'm reluctant to take a turn off by casting a 3-drop that doesn't add anything to the board. Plus considering I have 8 one-drops and Marshal it won't make everything cheaper.
However your other two other suggestions are great!! I'll look to put Regal Caracal in the sideboard.
With Angel of Invention I've been considering swapping Shalai out for something and this could be the perfect late game bomb. I feel like I'd need two however. Anything else to suggest swapping it with other than Shalai??

I like Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, since i can replace a few Regal Caracal with it. Also im not sure about Shining Shoal anymore, since the probability using it with the 5 drops in hand is pretty low. I guess i'll just change it into more 4 drops or maybe more 3 drops. Not yet sure though. Thanks for the help!

Alright I think I can help a bit. You need 11 more cards for this to be legal.
Budget (less than $5)
Need More Ways to Close the Game
Less budget (over $5 but less than $15)

Baral, Chief of Compliance would be a good inclusion, as would Seal Away. For finishers, I would cut Regal Caracal for Lyra Dawnbringer. The cats are really only good when you can start stacking them.

You are runnning a high number of lands for an aggro/midrange deck - I would trim it down to 21-22 and replace them with 2 more bolts. I would also try to find room for Collected Company, maybe cut the Ajani, Caller of the Prides? They don't really add a lot to an aggro deck and are awful without other creatures to support. I agree that Loam Lions are worth consideration but idk what to replace with them. Maybe change the numbers around a bit: 2 Regal Caracal (high CMC), 2 Qasali Pridemage (good but discourages attacking with the team which is what you want to be doing) and +4 Loam Lion for another efficient 1 drop.
