Like above, Golgari as counters is a really bad strategy. It plays a much stronger midrange game. Stuff like Tarmogoyf, Dark Confidant, and Liliana of the Veil.

Anyway some good SB options: Back to Nature, Creeping Corrosion, Maelstrom Pulse, Damnation, Leyline of the Void, Fulminator Mage, Choke, Spellskite, Golgari Charm, & Sword of Fire and Ice

I think it has it's uses and moments when it shines but won't serve your deck very well. Do you face Bogles a lot? If not then it's a slot that could be more counters or targeted spot removal.

I still think your biggest issue is you just need more counters and less Gideon.

Also I know your SB is cramped but Telepathy offers a huge advantage for Control decks game 2 and 3.

Well Rune Snag is better than Mana Leak in the late game. I'd advise you to run 4 but it sounds like the early game is the issue not the late game.

Vapor Snag & Rest in Peace is a great combo against Hollow One.

Honestly in your build I would cut down on all the Gideons in favor of more early game interaction. I've always found 4 wraths to be the right number.

Ceremonious Rejection, Hurkyl's Recall, & Stony Silence are great against Affinity

More catch all counters will help against humans, and then wraths are your best bet. They can do annoying stuff late game like double Mantis Rider but stopping an early game Kitesail Freebooter can be the difference between a win and a loss.

I recommend, Remand & additional Mana Leaks myself but white also has some unconventional tools that can shine at times. Mana Tithe, Oppressive Rays, Condemn, Soul Tithe.
