As far as strict upgrades go, Serum Visions needs to become Preordain and Anticipate needs to become Impulse. I feel like Snap would be better thanUnsummon. Lastly, I don't think there are enough shuffle effects to make Brainstorm good here. Maybe Shadow Rift or Counterspell could take it's spot.
I do like this deck though. Lifegain is rarely worth it on its own, but Daxos gives free card advantage too. Best of luck at the tournament.

Thanks for the upvote at Untapped Potential - Dragonlord Ojutai. You're right in that I don't dance around the fact it's a Voltron deck. I have tried to hone it to the point where all my cards either ramp, Voltron, or control. Anything else is a just useless fluff.
Neat Taigam deck, you're a little all over the place though. A few suggestions for cards to cut -
A bunch of your aura's are iffy, Shadow Rift is much more in line with what makes Taigam so good. Know that you can cast it immediately after declaring Taigam as an attacker, before blockers can be declared, and it will rebound. Nifty nifty.
A few cards to consider for rebounding good times: Ponder, Preordain, Serum Visions, Sram's Expertise, Impulse, Gitaxian Probe. There are more out there for sure, check out edhrec for the gigantic list of playable stuff.
I'm excited to see how your deck evolves, I am strongly considering switching to Taigam too. Though to be fair, Ojutai isn't so much slower than Taigam, just a little bit slower haha :)
One thing to consider moving forward: a lot of Taigam decks I've seen out there go crazy with a huge list of reboundable spells in the deck, but totally forget that Taigam needs to be protected in the worst of ways. His deck typically is hugely reliant on him staying on the field.

I'm not sure I like the amount of auras included. They work counter to Wydwen's biggest strength, her return to hand ability. Cards like Open Into Wonder, Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Taigam’s Strike, & Shadow Rift don't have the lasting impact, but can also fuel the addition wincon of Rise from the Tides or Runechanter's Pike.
Consume the Meek is another good, cheap sweeper, and an instant. Its listed at nearly .$50 here but I'm seeing a lot of $.20 copies on tcgplayer. Barter in Blood/Innocent Blood doesn't hurt the player either, b/c there's so few creatures and Wydwen can save herself.

you need Serum Visions and Sleight of Hand to help assemble your combo pieces. also, Slip Through Space is strictly better than Shadow Rift. if you add black, you can add discard spells to get rid of your opponents removal so they cant just immediately kill your creature when it attacks. it also gives you access to Tainted Strike so you have another 1-mana "damage doubler" so you don't have to run those 2-mana double strike cards. i actually have this same kind of deck posted as well if you want to take a look at it. just click my username and look for the grixis OTK.

Hey fun deck. I got an idea or three..Infiltrate, Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Shadow Rift, Spellheart Chimera, Runechanter's Pike.... Teferi's Veil + Obliterate is an old school combo that can save your creatures and give you extra ETB triggers. It might not be good enough, but it sounds hilarious enough. Archaeomancer, Izzet Chronarch, Charmbreaker Devils. I love how Sharding Sphinx goes exponential if you can get through with the thopters. It might be cool to have Thopter Spy Network too, since you are already using thopters. Happy gathering!

Thank you Snacrifice and Entrei, those are some really good suggestions. Dauthi Embrace and Shadow Rift are exactly what I am looking for in pollitical-ness. Cards I can generally use for my benefit, but they can support an opponent should it be needed. I'll definitely try those out.
Magosi, the Waterveil is also an interesting idea that I never really thought of. I'll give it a shot.
As far as budget restrictions and the competitiveness of my pod goes, I really don't want to go much higher in cost than it is right now. If the card fits perfectly though I would definitely consider it. My pod really ranges in terms of how competitive it will be. I would say most of the players in it are pretty skilled, but the decks can range from a "5 color-red deck" to highly tuned Yidris and Meren decks. The main thing is we usually refrain from infinite combos.

Hmm... How competitive is your pod?
Given your current budget restriction, Ponder, Preordain, Peek, Gitaxian Probe and Shadow Rift could end up being pretty useful for this deck. The rest really depends on what other kind of decks are in your pod and how much money you are willing to drop
