At the beginning of your draw step, you may draw two additional cards. If you do, choose two cards in your hand drawn this turn. For each of those cards, pay 4 life or put the card on top of your library.

@double0Z Hey thanks for the upvote and the comment This list is kinda old, I have added a few cards in the meantime and never got to update the list. The following is what Ive added and/or going to add.3 shocklands, 4 KTK fetches, Trophy Mage, Hokori, Dust Drinker, Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt, Enlightened Tutor, Jace's Archivist, Sigarda's Aid, Steelshaper's Gift, Sylvan Library and Winter Orb
Ill be getting rid of the tapped lands, and making this deck a little more cutthroat. As for Stax, if you like more ideas, you can always check out my Selvala, Explorer Returned list.
Its not Voltron, but its more Staxs then this is :)

johnito, thanks for the suggestions. Mentor of the Meek seems like such a no brainer. I will likely try Abzan Beastmaster and Mind's Eye as well. Sylvan Library might be added if I pick up a spare copy, and if I'm still not happy with the card draw I will try your other picks. Thanks again.

I would suggest more cards with "whenever you draw a card" effect :
Or cards that can make you draw "for free" :
And you NEED this card :

I've been using this deck to playtest against, and I've gotten maybe 20 games in against my decks now (they're all private, don't bother looking). I have a few suggestions.
Overall, you struggle when you can't find Quest for Ula's Temple. This is just an unfortunate fact of building around a specific card, but fortunately there are numerous ways of cheating creatures into play. Here are some ideas: See the Unwritten, Quicksilver Amulet, Proteus Staff, Polymorph, Mindwrack Liege, Lurking Predators, Elvish Piper, Call to the Kindred, Braids, Conjurer Adept, and Belbe's Portal.
Your topdeck manipulation is both mediocre and only used to dig for Quest for Ula's Temple. The idea of using creatures to dig is dandy, since they trigger quest as well, but they are a bit slow, and I'm not convinced the trade off is worth it. Here are some deck manipulation options: Brainstorm, Crystal Ball, Cream of the Crop, Mirri's Guile, Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library, Soothsaying, Sensei's Divining Top, Aqueous Form and Worldly Tutor.
Here are some ways to take further advantage of topdeck manipulation: Oracle of Mul Daya, Courser of Kruphix, Druidic Satchel, Bloodline Shaman, and I'm sure there are more, but I'm falling asleep in my chair.

Just found your decklist and brotha, I gotta say, this is the flavor deck I've been trying to build with my own Saskia!
I am motivated to help you.
Saskia is of THE FREE FOLK. AND SHE WILL NOT BEND THE KNEE TO THE LIKES OF !!!
Let me help you add more rebellion in your deck. And draw power later.
Seems like you need cards like Tectonic Instability strategy for aggro is to tap out and swing anyway, so this wont hurt you; tap all lands for mana in response to the trigger, War's Toll, Defense Grid (super good against control decks), AND MAKE THEM SUFFER WITH Curse of Marit Lage AND Price of Glory.
DRAW ALL THE CARDS!!!!
You need these in your deck to draw lots of cards:
- Sylvan Library
- Phyrexian Arena
- Null Profusion + Recycle + Reliquary Tower draws a CRAP TON of cards!!
- Wheel of Fortune + Geth's Grimoire for that burst draw into 28 or 35 cards.
Hope this helps! Keep raging against the tyranny of Blue Control, comrade!

Howling Mine becomes one-sided card advantage for a cheap cost.
If you have the funds for it, Time Spiral is pretty dank. Free wheel effect with potential mana refund if you're running stuff like bouncelands.
Sylvan Library seems like a strong option for additional card advantage.
Vampiric Tutor is another top-quality tutor spell.
Toxic Deluge is a strong option as a boardwipe.
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter also gives you extra mileage off your spells.
