Sphinx's Revelation Discussion

Alright, so I play UWR control, and I'm planning on going to a GP next week. I'm still looking for something to replace my 2 Dig Through Time now that they've been banned. I've thought about Telling Time, Think Twice, Serum Visions, etc. but none of them really catch my eye. Could Jace, Architect of Thought be playable, maybe even as just a 1-of? I just feel like I need more card draw, and throwing in more Sphinx's Revelations doesn't help me until the later game. Any thoughts?
The deck in question:

I like the theme a lot, but I worry you just die to very much interaction. With access to blue, and being only in two colors, I think you could easily afford to lose a bunch of your creatures, a win-con or two, and Kodama's Reach to make room for card draw and counterspells, in addition to other answers. You're well positioned against most creature-based themes, but otherwise very vulnerable.
Another thing to point out is that your maybeboard Wall of Blossoms isn't modern-legal (unfortunately). Being in white and hiving Wall of Omens is basically equivalent. As you mentioned, Sphinx's Revelation solves a lot of your problems too. Cyclonic Rift is also a very viable option if you can make room for it.
+1 though, love these kinds of decks!

Tiggawoo, from what I've seen with testing so far, you're absolutely right with the draw spells. All I really have right now is Sphinx's Revelation, and that takes a while to get going. I just have to figure out where to fit them in.
