Soltari Trooper Discussion

You mentioned in another thread you had tried /R /U /G variants to moderate success, is the same true for /B? My local meta is pretty high in control / mill / burn and being able add 4 Scoured Barrens and swap out Soltari Trooper and Cenn's Enlistment for cards like Syphon Life, Castigate, Raven's Crime or Devour Flesh would be an asset in those matchups.
I'm also pretty curious about Gods Willing over Stave Off. I can see how in a deck with no card manipulation scrying is valuable but losing the soft-counter for Inside Out or Rancor seems questionable.

Really Fun deck! (Well to play with, not against :P)
Some cards that might fit are Shade of Trokair, Kor Skyfisher. Shade of Trokair is a great card that be "cast" on turn one and it comes into play just when it is relevant. While playing this deck I often found I had a lot of excess mana and nowhere to put it. It can also be a blocker when you need it since for the most part your creatures can only block other shadow creatures (a rare sight). Running Kor Skyfisher lets you bounce and reuse your "control" enchantments allowing you to freely use them on tokens to gain Card Advantage as well as being a solid evasive body that can block. Overall I would cut 4 Arrests (generally worse than the other enchantments) and 2 Soltari Lancers (with Soltari Trooper being straight up cheaper I don't ever force the firststrike being useful.) for 4 Shade of Trokairs and 2 Kor Skyfishers.
