Creature — Angel
When Restoration Angel enters the battlefield, you may exile target non-Angel creature you control, then return that card to the battlefield under your control.

If you are going modern, Felidar Guardian is not a Restoration Angel also, why not have Thousand-Year Elixir sac tokens created with kiki and blink your Prime Speaker Vannifar with Felidar Guardian if you are going for overkill? Lol :)

for now I'm fitting in Torrential Gearhulk since my instant package is pretty large, but akroma could be fun at least out of the sideboard?

Wall of Omens alongside Delver of Secrets Flip isn't where you want to be. Get rid of one or the other. I highly highly recommend 4 Spell Queller . If you want to play Restoration Angel , I don't think Monastery Mentor will be better than Geist or Queller. But if you wanted to go a different direction and play fewer creatures and tons of cantrips, then Monastery Mentor could be insane. Medomai the Ageless is 6 mana. Don't play it. Ojutai is greedy enough as it is.
Opt is popular in UW because it can hit Terminus . In this I think Serum Visions is better, especially if you're trying to flip Delver of Secrets. But on the whole this doesn't really look or feel like a delver deck.
I guess, what do you want to play? What cards are you attached to building around?

So I would replace a few that already have, I don't think geist is very well positioned and dragonlord is more of a top end control finisher
I love mentor as a card but unfortunately we just don't have the support to play it in modern (yet) imo. It feels awful to tap out turn 3 with it, and we don't get any immediate value out of it in the later games. Now I have seen it do work g2 out of the side board. Medomai is just another great late game bomb, but its a control finisher, and thats not where you want to be imo. I'm no expert though! I'd look at some established UW midrange lists, I'm more of a tempo player.

captainamerica thanks for the suggestions.
I put Restoration Angel for a flash flying creature but it's a flex slot. Minamo, School at Water's Edge in theory should make Dragonlord Ojutai a hexproof, flying, vigilance creature, but still flex slot. Reflector Mage is something I can consider since it bounces threaths.

I played a total of four games this weekend. I wanted to try using Leonin Relic-Warder , So I intentionally played Two games trying to win with it. well, Both games...I was able to win on T4 using Leonin Relic-Warder . Which at first I thought was going to take awhile to pull off, having to tutor for everything but I found it to be quite simple.
Another game, which was a pod of 5, I won on T6 using the good ol' Buried Alive | Karmic Guide + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Restoration Angel . I could have actually won on T5 but I misplayed. So what I did was, having 3 Mana left open, I Grim Tutor on T5, grabbing Reanimate , setting me up for the win on T6, when I should have played Mausoleum Secrets (which I also had in hand) to tutor for Reanimate and with the remaining I could have played Reanimate that same turn. Which goes to show, I still need a lot more play time, So these simple mistakes don't happen.
The last game was 1V1. I could have won on T5 with Kaalia of the Vast + Master of Cruelties but I didn't end up playing it because, well, I felt a little bad. And I ended up losing on T7 that game But realistically, we could just say I won if I hadn't shown mercy.
Sir_Flash Lifegaining is working but its hard to maintain to utilize Hatred . The reason being is i'm almost instantly the target. It's hard holding onto life when i'm up against 3 or even 4 other players and they're all pinging/attacking me each turn. The lifegain is there but it never maintains along with my tutoring, just makes it harder for the use of Hatred . But I have yet to die by life total becoming 0. I'm either knocked out by infect or by someone else going infinite before I do.
And the thing with Gamble , every time I play it, I cross my fingers and I clench my jaw and think to myself "I can win if it plays in my favor" but then it's like it can set me back a bit if it doesn't. I may have played this deck a total of 25 times so far and used Gamble about 8 of those times and it's played in my favor each time except for once (during a tournament of all games, go figure)
Although Sneak Attack is great. I don't see it fitting the tempo of this build. I could be wrong, Spirits would have a better assessment about this than I would but so far from playing, the deck would have to alter a bit to accommodate Sneak Attack which would take on a slightly different build. I have yet to win a game with creatures attacking, the only thing I could see it working with is throwing out Rune-Scarred Demon or Doom Whisperer for some quick tutoring and possibly even Demonlord Belzenlok or Razaketh, the Foulblooded . But with a to cast and an additional to play, it gets me thinking of just throwing in Diabolic Tutor as an additional tutor source. But I could certainly be wrong and i'd be more than happy to receive some clarification as i'm still fairly new and getting a hang of this.

That is a great idea! I added a couple things today haven’t updated it here yet but Illusionist's Bracers was among them. So tempted to scrap it and build a Teysa Karlov deck. I would take out most of the big mono ramp stuff and splash an orzhov signet and a few value etb white creatures like reveilark and Restoration Angel . I dunno.
