When a player casts a spell, sacrifice Standstill. If you do, each of that player's opponents draws three cards.

You're welcome. At the moment I'm also trying to work on this button, would you be so kind and check, if my upvote-button in the description section of my Saheeli's Ironworks (KCI) does work?
But I'm not only here for your coding, I've also tested your deck. I think it does work well in a multiplayer-game. You're never the main threat on the board (for your opponents) until you get in the position of dealing high damage. I'd recommend Settle the Wreckage , it works well with your Land Equilibrium , maybe Magus of the Balance or an early Restore Balance . Shimmer would definitely create some hate against you, but could be useful. Standstill is very effective for control decks, because in normal case you'll get some card draw for cheap and also hinder some opponents in their board development. In the Maybeboard put something in against Graveyard-decks like Remorseful Cleric , but this depends on your play group.

if the thing you want is to have a deck focused on flying creatures or spells without good or bad additions, why not make a commander deck? if you already got the colors figured out you could use Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, Azor, the Lawbringer or even Medomai the Ageless. with that combination you got a lot of ways to control the board and protection for your creatures, and add 40 more cards to the deck. Aboshan's Desire, Flood, Tidal Flats, Spirit Bonds, Invocation of Saint Traft, Angelic Favor, Entreat the Angels, Tidal Surge, Decree of Justice, Battle Screech, March of Souls, Descend upon the Sinful, Storm Herd are cards that you could use in commander but not in this deck... if you want to have a reliable way to trigger Sigil of the Empty Throne you can use Flickering Ward, Shimmering Wings, Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Viscerid Armor, Ephara's Enlightenment and others. Aven Mindcensor, Mana Short, Boomerang, Standstill, Magus of the Moat, Bident of Thassa, Sigil of the New Dawn, Hindering Light, Supreme Verdict.
ooor make a pauper deck edh or a normal one... :P

Well first of all, dropping my link at the bottom. But some all-stars include:
Dreamscape Artist is exceptional ramp.
Glen Elendra Archmage is... hopefully going down in price thanks to the reprint??
Plaguecrafter is a strictly better Marauder or Executioner.
Spore Frog is the best. The actual best.
AEther Barrier seriously slows down aggressive decks.
Animate Dead can hit Muldrotha from the grave.
Excavation is nice.
Font of Fortunes, also nice.
Standstill draws cards.
Unbridled Growth is basically : draw a card.
Chromatic Lantern is FOUR DOLLARS RIGHT NOW
Expedition Map is good ramp.
Perpetual Timepiece is self-mill and woo!

Control, eh? The handy trio of Fleshbag Marauder, Plaguecrafter, and Merciless Executioner will keep your opponents low on creatures. Recurring the Plaguecrafter especially is super tough on opponents. Underrealm Lich lets you basically Ancestral Recall for each draw. Want to have the whole table hate you? Standstill every turn. Journey to Eternity Flip is another great way to reuse creatures every turn, and that along with Meren of Clan Nel Toth will keep your recursive engine going. Need to ping lots of dudes at once? Walking Ballista and Bane of the Living will keep the board clear.

This is actually really close to Fortifications (Darksteel Garrison is the only one), which is a subtype that did interest me but I'm not sure how much actual design space there is for it.
I would like to see something like Trap Cards from yugioh, like a spell that exiles itself until some trigger happens and then they are cast. Cards along the lines of Angelic Renewal, Standstill or Hesitation, but you can counter it with a counterspell instead of needing to either hit it on the way down or stifle the trigger (which still leaves it on the board!)

There's a lot of viable Mono-Blue Control (and control/combo) decks in Legacy.
Some you might like:
Mono-Blue Fish (this one isn't a control deck, but it's worth looking at because it's cheap to build, can be configured for Modern, and has a lot of overlap with other decks in the format)
I'm partial towards Omnishow, which is a combo deck that plays very "draw, go" before it dumpsters all over your opponent's face.
...and add something like:

In commander, there are a lot of great politics cards that you can use to help/hinder your opponents and play mind games. Game Plan is a great card for this. Also Standstill. Also never underestimate the political power of Telepathy in a multiplayer game.
Cards like Diplomatic Immunity will help keep your commander/wincons alive.
Cards like Freed from the Real offer scary combo potential.
Hope this helps! :)
