those are good cards but if they have creatures im not doing it right and i do have verdict and cleansing use Quicken into Supreme Verdict

While I do see your point in that, sometimes creatures are inevitable. Counterspells typically don't come out untill T3, and Supreme Verdict is a T4 at best. You won't always have a wipe on hand, and AEtherize and Celestial Flare do a great job of slowing board states down. Then again, you do have so much scry and draw you might be able to get more consistency.

That aside, I'd run one more AEtherling . Heavy control is all nice, but you still need to win somehow.

well there is always the Elixir of Immortality clock were i control you well into turn 30 when my deck is now just cycling through counters and draw cards has happened like 5 times and is priceless

I don't like Elixir of Immortality in these decks, unless you can guarantee a 2-0 win, you'll run into issues with the clock.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion needs to be mainboard, and you should look at including Jace, Architect of Thought
