I needed a board clearer for when the opponent can outpace my control. Flowing much better now after this latest alteration.

River's Rebuke is solid for removing a single player's stuff.

Aragon_Neotrix: Love the potential of Depose / Deploy ! I'll play around with it. The incremental life gain has played really well, but I like the versatility of that card.

Narset, Parter of Veils is not on this list, because I have struggled with mana fixing just a bit too much, and her ability hinders that. I replaced her with Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor who has worked so much better. But you're right...maybe I'll replace Invoke the Divine or something in the SB for control decks.

Regarding River's Rebuke , creature removal isn't a problem, so that really would be added for walkers. However, I'm using The Elderspell in leiu of that, which works better. But then again, now that I'm writing this, it could be also good against enchantment and/or artifact heavy decks. However, to my knowledge (which isn't much about Standard meta), that isn't a big archetype. I'll just add it to the maybeboard haha

Okay then since you are keen on this

River's Rebuke deals with any deck including control, preventing a amass (heh) of powerful walkers

Narset, Parter of Veils should definitely be in the sideboard for preventing control from refilling their hand but maybe in the mainboard since you only run 3 creatures

Rather than Revitalize try Depose / Deploy the first side stops aggro a bit and replaces itself and the second side gets you evasive tokens, blockers and gains you life at instant speed

I like the idea - BUT:

x4 Search for Azcanta  Flip seems a tad much...

Instead of x2 Clear the Mind , consider the possibility of x1 Clear the Mind with x1 or x2 Mainboarded Devious Cover-Up .

While speaking of Devious Cover-Up, I feel like you're lacking in Hard Counters - Sinister Sabotage seems really good in a deck like this.

I think the idea looks cool - just think the deck needs a some tuning, adjust the numbers to make room for the above suggestions to help you survive early game.

The deck needs to stall and disrupt and survive early game so you can chain River's Rebuke and get to the point where you can Chain Nexus of Fate too so you can win.

Hope that helps.

River's Rebuke could save you if your opponent manages to get a board state.

Love River's Rebuke here. Recasting all their stuff isn't easy when you have a board of taxes in place. Would you humor me if I asked your reasoning for The Wanderer here? I know that Grateful Apparition can keep it alive longer by being a pseudo +ability for it but what are you specifically getting from Wanderer's ability?

FenrisBurgess, that is very valid criticism. My playgroup is not consistent in power level, so even though this list is not optimized with tutors to grab all the answers, Narset still becomes Archenemy (turn 3 Anointed Procession + Storm Herd off the top one time will do that haha). I have tried to keep the density of tutors that directly find me win conditions down. I like digging through my deck to find the River's Rebuke answer to my opponent's copies of Platinum Angel under Daretti.

Recently though I have moved and have not played as much, so maybe it is time to get to an LGS and consider Enlightened Tutor and similar depending on the meta. They could make the deck significantly more focused, though I'd have to stare at this for awhile to figure out what to cut. Thanks for the feedback and upvote!
