Sideboard Izzet Staticaster. It's so good against any small deck, but especially tokens.

This deck seems totally sweet these days.
A few things that I raise my eyebrows at:
First, Remand. It seems like an odd choice to me. The meta is so low to ground these days that I find it surprising that it warrants a spot. However I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.
Secondly, Fulminator Mage. GR tron was so all-in that fulminator was quite good against them. But Eldrazi tron operates so effectively without tron online that I find it surprising that Fulminator Mage sets them back so well. Again, I'm curious about your experience with it.
On the more minor side of things, I really want to see 1 more Terminate and 1 less Fatal Push. Stuff like Ponza plays threats like Stormbreath Dragon exclusively because it doesn't die to Bolt, Push, or Bolt. Similarly, opposing Tasigur's need a Terminate to kill. Sure, the Terminate is awkward against, say, humans, which will be the much more common matchup, but all the same I've always felt exposed with less than 4 pieces of hard removal.
Otherwise, I love where the list is at right now. If I had cryptics I'd play it for awhile, but alas...

Very out of date, but informative nonetheless.

Ponza is designed to prey on slow midrange decks. They ramp early, disrupt you, and their inevitability on topdecks is similar to that of Tron. However, they're still beatable. To beat them, you have to disrupt them early so they can't ramp ahead of curve, then kill them before they can recover. Thoughtseize and Fatal Push are ideal disruption because you can strip their game-winners away and kill their ramp. However, this deck is just too slow to beat Ponza before they can recover. Once Ponza makes enough mana they just have to wait for a topdecked bomb (which they play plenty of), so establishing a quick clock is crucial. Kalitas and Thrun are generally slow creatures and Spellskite is just awful against Ponza. Even stuff like Liliana isn't great because they can topdeck so well. Tarmogoyf and Tasigur are great against them, but otherwise this deck grinds way too hard to present a fast enough clock.
Out of curiosity, how do you fare against eldrazitron? The 2 matchups are very similar for midrange decks like this.

It would enable combo finishes, but unless I'm comboing it doesn't do much in the deck. In particular because of the delver plan, and especially since it costs 3 mana to cast, I don't think it's worth playing.
I'm officially 5 cards away from the deck now. 4 forces and 1 last knight. Too bad forces are so expensive. Please 25th anniversary masters have a reprint?
