I wouldnt focus on Vanquisher's Banner . It will make your Mana curve hard to reach. On the other hand Mentor of the Week is a great addition. I personally love that card. Also you can look into Tocatli Honor Guard and Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben for sideboard, and main board Conclave Tribunal and Radiant Destiny . For more card draw Ranger of Eos , Survival Cache and Bygone Bishop

Kumi First off, thanks so much for the feedback!
While I do want to build W/U (mainly for the off-the-radar vibes), I realize that G/W is probably the better option just because it has access to Gladecover Scout . That being said, I have some reasoning for some of the card choices here:
(and a disclaimer: I do not profess to be a Bogles veteran, so feel free to tell me if I'm completely off on something)
I wanted to play W/U specifically to make the bad matchups less bad; these matchups include Ad Nauseum or Prison decks (decks that run Ensnaring Bridge ). I do see what you’re saying, that 5 counterspells might be too many. I just felt like I wanted to see one to two every game, and 5 felt like the right number.
I agree that Dryad Arbor is super important in the Jund/GB Rock matchups, but I assumed that the real key player was Leyline of Sanctity , because, from what I’ve seen of the matchup (and this is super limited experience here, so feel free to take it with a grain of salt), the real danger in the G/B midrange matchup is the discard that they have available. I feel like a turn 1 Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek taking a hexproof dude would be a much earlier game over. In terms of Liliana of the Veil , my plan was just countering it with Spell Pierce or Stubborn Denial .
In terms of Spellskite , I wasn’t even thinking about Burn or Scapeshift, but rather Infect. As Infect seems to me like a garbage-fire of a matchup, I was considering Spellskite as a way to slow them down and build my own clock. Also, Spellskite seems like it would be absolutely busted in the Bogles mirror. But, as neither of these decks are particularly prevalent in the current meta, I see your point. Faster is better.
I totally get the Gladecover Scout over Invisible Stalker argument. But going down to two Kor Spiritdancer seems strange to me, just because I’ve heard from several Bogles players that, depending on the matchup, it’s straight gas and better to have in the mainboard.
I also understand the concern of not having enough Auras, which is why I made the decision to run Curious Obsession over Unstable Mutation . I think I’ll be going up one Curious Obsession to have a full playset; maybe I’ll take out the mainboard Spell Pierce .
And...I think that’s about it. Once again, I’d just like to say thanks so much for the feedback. While I do adore W/U, I’m strongly considering switching to Bant Bogles because of the boost I’d get from both Rancor and Gladecover Scout .
Oh yeah! One final question: considering how prevalent Humans is in the current meta, should I keep the two Tocatli Honor Guard in the board? It seems like a ridiculous bomb against that deck.

How has a full playset of Tocatli Honor Guard in the main board worked out for you? Is your local meta extremely Golgari and/or mono red dense?

You should add Tocatli Honor Guard to the (Creatures Control) category !
A good Hushwing Gryff without Flying and Flash.

Here are some cards you can try out:
- Devoted Caretaker
- Torpor Orb
- Tocatli Honor Guard
- Spelltithe Enforcer
- Phyrexian Revoker
- Harsh Mentor
- Thalia, Heretic Cathar
- Grand Abolisher
- Gorilla Shaman
- Leonin Arbiter
The thing about going the hatebears route is that it is adjusted to your meta, how is your meta been like? I would also say going heavy in the Sunforger route would be great. Including cards like Wear / Tear , Chaos Warp , Oblation , Forsake the Worldly , Teferi's Protection , Tithe , Comeuppance , Faith's Reward , Lapse of Certainty , Rebuff the Wicked , Ghostway , and Eerie Interlude .
Hope that gives you some ideas you can toy around with!
