In your sideboard, I would use Doom Blade or Victim of Night. They are good options for hard removal (versus deck with creatures higher than 3 toughness). If you face an army of 1/1, you should look for Blazing Volley (1 mana), Electrickery(instant) or Shrivel(-1/-1 for your creatures too). Finally, Duress is always interresting versus heavy spell decks.
Also, something to protect your noble would be amazing, but I have NO idea what could be used there.
Overal, nice deck idea. I like it a lot!

This deck has no way to deal with aggro decks, Bile blight isn't worth it, because it requires all the offending creatures to be the same name. I would suggest Killing Wave, or maybe Shrivel for clearing boards.

This comment is based on the differences between my deck:Thulsa's Doom Quiver and this one.
Wow! I really appreciate the thought that must have gone into this. I'm anxious to hear more of your thoughts. Here are mine...
The more I think about it I agree that Shield of the Oversoul is the better card. While it is not transferable to other creatures and vulnerable to destruction itself, it does protect against Shrivel and from back-to-back creature destruction in ways that Broken Fall can't.
Both decks are based off of getting a certain amount of creatures in proportion to a certain amount of effects. In playtesting I often found myself with duplicates of some cards that I couldn't use effectively. For example one creature but two Neurok Stealthsuits. Being able to cycle cards in hand as well as some added card advantage I think offsets the cheaper casting cost and I like Compulsive Research better. For now...
While both one-drops, the first turn Sedge Scorpion followed by a Psionic Gift on turn two, is my deck's most formidable one-two punch. And since I feel the late game is already in this type of deck's favor, speed is more important than late game heft. So I like Sedge Scorpion better, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on why you think the Durkwood Baloth is the better choice here because I'm having difficulty seeing the advantage.
I like the addition of counterspells, but I feel like the deck needs lots of deathtouch creatures to function. There will be significant creature hate. My intent is not just to use the deathtouch creatures for shooting other creatures but also for attacking and for creature removal even if it's 1:1. That said, I'd like to playtest this variant a bit more...

Atony1400: Hey! Thanks for the suggestions. I was thinking about Dark Ritual or Altar's Reap to replace Wring Flesh actually. However, since I am suddenly in a "budget" phase, I'm leaning away from the Ritual. =(
Grasp of Darkness is cool, but is in use in another deck. Plus over budget. =(
Shrivel on the other hand, I could see in the sideboard.
Thanks, though, what about a better 2-drop creature? Any ideas?
