Hm, I don't know, man... but, the mix of creatures you're running seems really sloppy. I mean, what is the Isamaru, Hound of Konda good for? And the 4 copies of Cryptic Serpent and Delver of Secrets  Flip being bounced back to your hand due to the effect of Awoken Horror  Flip look a little out of place.

I love UW Control, and I play it myself as TrUWe Control. I know some cards are hella expensive, like Snapcaster Mage, Celestial Colonnade and Cryptic Command, but you have a lot of cheap options that are nearly auto-include in any azorius build:

  • Serum Visions - our one and only cantrip in modern.
  • Blessed Alliance - although this is not necessarily a 4-of, is aggro kryptonite and you need some.
  • Path to Exile - THE Removal for modern. Just had its third or fourth reprint, so it's time to get yours.
  • Detention Sphere - doesn't really seems like mainboard material, right? haha But, I've been using two and they're extremely useful.
  • Aaaand lands. You run so few lands. You'd might want to use some more, since you can't afford losing land drops.

But then you might ask yourself: "How the fuck will I win if I just take out all of my creatures?". Yes, that's though. Awoken Horror  Flip by itself is a solid wincon, but he gets Fatal Pushed very easily, so you can't relay solely on him to win. I'd recommend some planeswalker, like Gideon Jura (who is having a recent price spike) and Elspeth, Sun's Champion and even Narset Transcendent, but I don't know about your budget.

Anyhow, I hope my tips helped anything about your list.See ya!

The aim of the deck is that you just put one creature at a time and counter / bounce / comply any other spell. An alternative to the kiln fiend deck that is much quicker but not interactive. I saw the Blue Delver in Mono-U decks, and tried to make a budget version with white splash and Cryptic Serpent that is a big body for 2 or 3 CMC, as you use Thought Scour and Winds of Rebuke to fill graveyard. Flashback cards are here for value (Think Twice and Comply).

Serum Visions is great but slow at sorcery speed, Peek seems better with Comply and Winds of Rebuke.

Maybe I have to work a bit more on this deck.
