Serum Visions Discussion

Well the cards you want to avoid spending on are pretty much the core of the deck. I also wouldn't recommend playing Blue White Control if you're new to magic and on a budget. It's one of those decks that needs an experienced pilot to do well in the current meta.
That being said, I don't know what half those creatures you listed do but U/W Control typically plays only Snapcaster Mage with Celestial Colonnade as its primary win condition. Control usually runs 3 win conditions and most find the third in a planeswalker like Elspeth, Sun's Champion.
The 1 Spell Queller you have is legit but I'd drop all the other creatures. Fill in the empty slots with some of the following: Opt, Serum Visions, Think Twice, Vapor Snag, Repeal, Dispel, Negate, Spell Pierce, Mana Leak, Rune Snag, Condescend Logic Knot, Detention Sphere and additional Supreme Verdicts. You could use Day of Judgment but being uncounterable is relevant.

So a cop, politician and a parrot walk into a bar...
I'm sorry I couldn't help myself. I really like the deck and lifegain in general, despite the fact many people think it sucks in EDH. As for suggestions I think one time small spells like Serum Visions and Ponder are for standard or modern and not for EDH and I'd suggest that you try to get your hands on something better, Sensei's Divining Top would be my choice.
On another note, why the hate on Torment of Hailfire mate, the card is awesome. You might think it under-performs, because it doesn't fit in your deck (you have no strong ramp to power it up and no counterspells to protect it). Apart from that yeah you should replace it asap with something else maybe Aetherflux Reservoir or whatever you like.
Solid deck +1

If you want to budgetize, you can cut Baral and replace him with any combination of Cryptic Serpent or Young Pyromancer and cut Remand and replace it with any combination of Serum Visions or Electrolyze.
Once you are done cutting, you have a clear upgrade path in front of you!

hitting tasigur with bob hurts a lot
the red splash seems super unnecessary.

I'd also cut one Selfless Spirit for another Aether Vial, because something like Spell Queller, Drogskol Captain, or Mausoleum Wanderer covers targeted removal, which I think are more common than board wipes. Aether Vial on two lets you bring in Phantasmal Image at instant speed, which can be used to fizzle yet more removal, by copying Drogskol Captain.
Also, add a sideboard.

I've added playset of Serum Visions, so Faithless Looting would make this deck run too many cantrips...I'll think about Guttersnipe though, I may add it to sideboard :). I like this deck being really aggressive though...

I forgot to add the most important thing: why aren't you playing any cantrips? Opt, Serum Visions, Thought Scour, etc. cantrips are THE reason to splash blue in any deck. They let you play a lower land count while still consistently hitting them on curve and they let you dig for answers when you need them. Thought Scour also enables turn 2 Tasigur.
