Not bad, but a few things seems to contradict each other, Yahenni's Expertise and Demon of Dark Schemes kinda defeat the point of Docent of Perfection. There are better counterspells for non artifact decks than metallic rebuke for 3 mana, like Spell Shrivel, Disallow, and some at 2 mana are better too like Negate and Essence Scatter. I like Rise though, it's a fun win con.

viperfang4, I am aware of the problem with Docent of Perfection Flip and Yahenni's Expertise/Demon of Dark Schemes. It's fine, though, because my goal is to keep their board clear. The wizard tokens are not part of the win condition, just a fun side bar if I happen to get any. I really want the 5/4 (or 6/5, if I do manage to flip it) body that flies.
Negate is quite good, and I like Horribly Awry because it exiles the cards (unlike Essence Scatter). Sure, it doesn't hit some of the larger creatures, but those aren't the creatures that generally give me the most problems. I played a lot of people wanting delirium, so Horribly Awry definitely annoyed them. I had 3x main board but decided that Just the Wind will be better in the main, and the above list will be adjusted accordingly quite soon. I will give Essence Scatter a try, though, and maybe it will be better because it can hit a broader range of creatures.
Thanks for the feedback! This is definitely a work in progress and it needs help...
