This looks much too expensive for me to play but I would love to play it a few times!

Question, what is teh win con of this deck...otehr than just control....is it the sword, angels, golems? or all three, because I would focus on just one, like maybe adding cloudshift for the splicer if you can...flips delver and gets you more golems

Inces_Velus: It is to annoy the crap out of the opponent with Vapor Snag and and luck sack its way to victory by always having two swords in its opening hand with a blind delver flip revealing a Mana Leak . Sounds good amiright? lol It is basically to play a guy or two and beat the opponent down slowly while playing control to keep threats off the board and protect your guy. I do have to say, I would run the images in the side and go up an additional Restoration Angel and Snapcaster Mage .

Hmm, I wish I knew of way aside from DOJ to rid yourself of Dungrove, I might try and add another wipe or two in the side but I highly recommend Terminus given zombies rise to power. Another Sword of Feast and Famine in the board as well will be good, I hate seeing that card when I play my zambies or my Jund list.

I has been almost a month since I played this deck, I do agree almost completely with most of your suggestions, but my problem with them is I simply don't own the extra sword, and 4th of the two creatures. Also I found that I didn't really like the playstyle of delver, then again for 7 months before I played this deck I had been tapping hero's and crusaders of white to victory

Yeah, I know the feel, I have tried at least 4 different delver lists and hated all but my Delver says NO. This deck made people red in the face when they played me. So instead, I saw that delver began to dominate and so I designed all my decks to at least handle delver, which they could until the feast and famine was added recently and somehow my decks crap out and they always have F and F in their opening hand. I may just have to go Naya pod again with my jund list and hopefully the recent changes to my bw zombies will keep its head over the list.
