I could go with Blind Obedience I suppose. If Oblivion Ring turns out to be extraneous, I could switch the two. But probably just for lifegain. It would only slow down cards with haste though, but I suppose that's worth it. And Sever the Bloodline sounds good in the sideboard.
Otherwise cool deck
more Sphinx's Revelation . take out Render Silent and Psychic Strike and replace them with Dissipate and Syncopate . some creatures to include are Snapcaster Mage and Augur of Bolas . Cremate and Crypt Incursion should be in the sideboard. Inaction Injunction is bad. dont play it. Jace, Architect of Thought , and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are good. Lingering Souls is very strong and should be played. perhaps a 1 or 2 Terminus and/or Sever the Bloodline main board. Think Twice or Forbidden Alchemy . you shouldnt need to be running mill cards (besides jace), your cards should clear up the board enough so your lands will do all the milling for you.
I wouldn't count on getting a vraska ulti as your wincon, since without ramp, it's only going to come out on turn 8 if you're willing to sac vraska, hit 5 land-drops in a row, it doesn't get countered, they don't play burn, AND protect her for three turns, then hope they don't Supreme Verdict or Sever the Bloodline or Detention Sphere etc. your tokens. The Downpour is rather situational, don't you agree? Fog is cheaper, and can stop more creatures. I'd at least playtest it.
Aurelia seems out of place in this deck. You're not attacking with an army she can trigger... just an aetherling and maybe a snapcaster. I'm surprised there aren't at least some Detention Sphere
s, as they dual purpose as both Oblivion Ring
and Sever the Bloodline
, especially vs token decks. If you find yourself running into little creatures, or finding yourself in need of card filtering, Izzet Charm
would provide great options. I second the Blind Obedience
, as it's equally useful vs control and aggro.
I could give great ideas if you told us what types of decks you're struggling against.
Skullcrack stops life gain and give more direct burn, Rakdos Charm can ruin selesnya decks. Mizzium Mortars (or Homing Lightning , depending of which you feel is better for the cost) can stop larger creatures. Weapon Surge is useful as a pump and can trick your opponent into blocking and them losing all their creatures. I like Midnight Recovery to allow you to get creatures back if playing against a lot of board wipes or removal. Sever the Bloodline is basically another Mizzium Mortars , but can get rid of larger creatures, and gets rid of them for good. Fling because I love the card and it's underrated utility. Finally, Slaughter Games to stop your opponent from dropping a bomb after turn 4.
That's easy enough:
What removal is there in Blue and Green in Standard? Rapid Hybridization , or counterspells, and I can't be sitting on counter spells and simultaneously attempting to ramp into 4, 5 and 6 CMC spells.
If you can provide better removal and disruption besides counterspells... then I'd consider it... but I don't think it's there. Evolving flyers Cloudfin Raptor ? Not good enough and instead of dropping a turn 2 Gyre, I'd be dropping a turn 2 Remember this deck is not fast, it's on the longer end of mid-range, and the Thrags assist in the beating I'll be getting up until that point.
