You could go full control and 2x card:White Sun's Zenith. I've seen people easily first an FNM with it, it's just too hard to play against. "End of turn flash in 20 power, I'll swing for the kill". I've seen it splashed black, simply for a playset of Doom Blade or Go for the Throat

It'll mean you can go a bit more draw-go. Black splash allows for Forbidden Alchemy to be fully made use of, and I'd swap Ponder for Think Twice . It's not as good, but it's at the end of their turn, so it always leaves your mana open to stop what they're doing, and if they do nothing, you draw, win-win.

Timely Reinforcements is a 3/4 of. It's blockers, and life gain. 1/2x Phantasmal Image is a useful drop.

Gideon Jura and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage are what I run in UW control currently. It's only about $30 for 2x of each if you ebay them well. They work stupidly well together, and on their own, protect themselves/hold their own.

I would always 1x Karn Liberated into the side. In an FNM enviroment, it's painfully slow and long to watch to control players slug it out and you may get a draw if you side in, to use him as a win-con but there's little else you can do.

Intangible Virtue and Geist of Saint Traft would perfectly fit in this deck

Wow thanks off your advise guys!

Crazzled1, I took your advise on the Think Twice & White Suns. Great ideas! Not sure about splashing black yet, gonna playtest with that & the different planeswalkers.

Olihot, I love both of those cards!! Don't know how I missed them! Thanks for pointing them out, But what to take out for them...?
