Looking at the commander more closely, you've already hit on the Wanderwine Prophets and the Trophy Mage in to infinite mana combos. Now it probably makes sense to look at ways you can more consistently find and execute them.

In these colors the go-to win conditions would be Laboratory Maniac, Splinter Twin combos and Aetherflux Reservoir. I don't think this commander supports storm or Twin. Are there other combos we could do with her specifically?

No Mox Diamond?

Felt like building a casual deck? it's something I've been considering, too.

@rothgar13: Yeah, the difference between T2 and T3 is massive and the reason she's still never made it in to one of my lists. While she can be used to blank a Reality Smasher and makes the Merfolk matchup slightly less miserable, I don't know that it's enough.
22 land is where I've been at for mono-white; 23 is what I've done for Eldrazi & Taxes since its mana is so greedy. This hasn't caused problems yet but I think it'd take some Karsten-style math to really figure out what's optimal.
Two other things I've been eyeing: Phyrexian Revoker is good against Tron decks and can turn off Devoted Druid until they find a way to remove it. However it is very vulnerable. That's what's stopped me from running it in the past. Linvala, Keeper of Silence is also a powerful hate card, but only hits creatures and at 4 CMC can't fit in the maindeck. She would have to be in the side, which is already pretty cramped. Do you have any experience with these?
I guess I'm mostly interested in shoring up the Counters Company matchup.

I didn't see too much UW control at the last event I attended, but it won the previous one and that usually draws more people in to play a given deck. A lot of enfranchised players here means many grinders can switch decks from one event to the next. I'd rather Spirit be the fourth Splicer, but also don't fancy getting blown out by Supreme Verdict. At the same time though, maybe Smuggler's Copter makes up for that?
Interesting point on the 23 land. I do run that many in the Eldrazi version. With four Restos, do you think it would be wise to do the same here?

@rothgar13: I've had mixed results with Selfless Spirit and have considered changing to to Splicer #4, myself. That said, the metagame in the Seattle area where I'm grinding PPTQs has always been grindy and removal-heavy. The Spirit is something of a concession to that. Gideon is as well but has been consistently high performance for me. I may do as you suggest and drop the Spirit.
Alternatively, what would you suggest to shore up the midrange and control matchups?
I don't know how well the desert package will work. Each one is made better by the others since they can sacrifice whichever other desert is least useful at the moment for multiple activations. I never had issues with 9 colorless sources before, so if this goes well I'll be able to run maindeck GY hate; that sounds pretty awesome.
