Soul Barrier Discussion

I don't know what it uses, probably mana curve and something else, but it has made some stupid decisions in the past, this deck locks good! Maybe a Dismal Failure, Soul Barrier or Dissipation Field? I'll +1!
P.S. I don't play commander and my opinions may not be expert.

Vraska - Vorel can't double the counters on Planeswalkers. I still like Kiora in this deck, but the only way to user her -8 ability right after you cast her is Doubling Season.
Winterblast - All of your suggestions are terrible and you should feel bad. (Except Crystalline Crawler, that's fine.) Why do you hate fun?
Arikarin - Mostly I agree with Vraska; you need a lot more mana. Try to run at least 38 lands, and get some more mana rocks. The very best Mana Rocks for you are Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia, 'cause they can get really out of hand really fast with Vorel. I also run a Pentad Prism - it just a Crystalline Crawler without a body, it's pretty nice.
Mostly I think you need to take out a bunch of cards that are... sort of just terrible?
- Chronic Flooding
- Hunters' Feast
- Predator's Rapport
- Mending Touch
- Soul Barrier
- Zephyr Charge
- Beetleform Mage
- Adaptive Snapjaw

So, I just learned that Seizures, Errant Minion and Soul Barrier are all illegal in the online pauper format. Which basically means this deck is not viable. I don't think there are any legal approximations, but I am open to suggestion.

I am building my own pauper taxing deck based on an old, old deck I once played with using Errant Minion and Winter Orb. I thought I'd see what I could do with a pauper variant. Here is a link to my deck: A Tax to Grind
To start off, I really like what you have going here.
A few suggestions...
Most cards in pauper are very cheap and lots of decks are very thin on mana production as a result, so playing Rhystic Study can be a huge burden. Playing more than one, is almost unfair. Plus, you should really have some card drawing ability.
Shimmering Glasskite might be an interesting creature to consider as well. It'll be hard for your opponent to cast two creature-hate spells in a turn.
You might want to consider Fade Away for the sideboard if too many creatures are hitting the table.

Eater of the Dead is definitely a card you should get for your deck. It's usually a wincon by itself. Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura allow you to get massive milling from just a lot of blue mana. Pemmin's Aura can even use your black mana to increase the creature's toughness for more milling. Tree of Perdition is a new card that sounds really fun in Phenax. I plan on getting it for my Phenax deck eventually. Wall of Frost is a good wall you can play with Phenax.

Soul Barrier is fun depending on how heavy in creatures your meta is. Either they waste 2 more mana or get you 2 damage closer to drawing a card each turn.
