JMarostica, Bloodytrailz, and precociousapprentice: thanks for your suggestions and feedback. Here are my thoughts on suggested Ravnica Allegiance cards:

Bedevil is definitely going in. Not as strong as Anguished Unmaking or Utter End but it is another flexible removal spell. Great suggestion.

Smothering Tithe I'm considering. It's obviously a great ramp engine in White. However, what am I ramping into? Would I just be putting an annoying enchantment on the battlefield that attracts too much attention? Also, at 4 CMC it is a bit awkward for a ramp spell. At 4 mana I want to be casting Marchesa or other pillowfort effects. That is why I like ramp to be 3 CMC or less. Having said all that, it is a ramp machine and deserves consideration.

Captive Audience is an incredibly flavourful/fun looking card. Unfortunately as a pseudo-curse, it kinda works against my usual game plan. It incentivizes one opponent to come at me hard in retribution. It doesn't cause discord amongst my opponents which is what I aim to do.

Revival//Revenge wouldn't be optimal in my deck. I don't have a lot of small creatures for the first half. The second half has the problem of not actually killing someone. While more mana-intensive, Torment of Hailfire , Debt to the Deathless , and Exsanguinate can actually kill opponents (sometimes all of them!) Revenge can't do that and only hits one. I'm thinking of putting Torment of Hailfire back in as a late game win con. I've been wrecked by that card even with X being quite modest.

Cards I'm considering cutting:

I agree with the critiques of Teysa. She is just too much at 7 mana. I've had a soft spot for her because I think her design is cool, but she rarely lives up to expectations.

Delaying Shield also hasn't been living up to expectations. The fact that it helps me avoid losing the monarchy is nice, but I have to many pillowfort and fog effects that this shield typically isn't necessary. Again at 4 CMC, I always prefer casting Marchesa than this card.
