Gleeock: Yes but Poochie had a home planet to go back to. Jace has Ravnica. We can't escape him yet.

Well, nearly three days later, and not one person has come out openly in favor of Jace. I'm ... kinda disappointed. I was hoping someone could provide an alternative viewpoint for me to properly debate.
Next article may be bumped back a week. I've got 8 days straight of work I'm in the middle of, and my time to write has suffered for it.

Creature - Angel Ally
If the Kicker was paid, Outreach Angel enters the Battlefield with Flying. If the kicker was paid, Outreach Angel enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it.
Whenever Outreach Angel, or another Ally you control enters the battlefield, if Outreach Angel has Flying, all other Allies you control gain Flying until the end of the turn, and if Outreach Angel has +1/+1 counters on it, all Allies get +X/+X until the end of the turn, where X is equal to the number of +1/+1 counters on it.
Another Kicker-Ally, different base color this time.

Unyielding Truth of Lies
Legendary Enchantment Creature - Unyielding
When Unyielding Truth of Lies enters the battlefield, you may counter target spell. If that spell is countered in this manner, exile it instead.
: You may cast a spell exiled by Unyielding Truth of Lies, spending mana as though it were of any color (or colorless). If it is a permanent, exile the spell as it resolves, and put a token into play that is a copy of that spell. If it is not a permanent, Unyielding Truth of Lies exiles that spell as it resolves.
Unyielding Truth of Lies' Power is equal to your devotion to Blue.
Unyielding Truth of Lies' Toughness is equal to your devotion to White.

Take another crack at the Unyielding.

TheRedGoat: If you want to consider the conceit that Planeswalkers are supposed to be the distilled essence of an archetype of that particular color or colours, then there are a few potential ways that could go.
First, we have the 'classic' "Wizard in his tower". This would be the 'walker who would focus on deck manipulation - Srcy, Fateseal, Draw and Tutoring. Possibly even extra turns! Second, we have the Artificer. Blue has long been a supporter of artifacts, so having Tezzeret the Seeker represent this isn't a bad thing.
Third, we have the Board State Manipulator. This is the 'control' version of , which would include things like boucing permanents, changing card types (say, Phantasmal Terrain as a -2) and otherwise not stopping the opponent from acting, but simply making it take more effort to act. This version could also invoke giving out extra turns - or even phases, such as with Paradox Haze.
The fourth is the combat mage. This one will make creatures unblockable, throw out -X/-0 effects, or even generate Illusion creatures that pop when you so much as glance at them funny. Or even go old school, and remind people that Leviathan, Polar Kraken and Jokulmorder exist.
And that's just four major archetypes.

Planeswalker - Amese
+1: You may create a 2/2 Green Cat Warrior Token under your control.
0: You may sacrifice a Forest. If you do, Gain 3 life.
-2: You may search your library for a non Legendary creature. If you do, reveal it and put it into your hand. Shuffle your Library.

Fan the Flames
Whenever another player or a creature or planeswalker you do not control would take damage, they take that much damage plus two instead.
Whenever you would take damage from a source you do not control, it deals half that damage (rounded up) instead.
I'm thinking ... a card that cares about the order of cards in the graveyard. Because I had to remind someone last night that you're not allowed to arrange your graveyard however you see fit.

Szadek, Lord of Secrets is an alternate Mill condition in these colors. He grows exponentially when he's unblocked!

If you did, I glazed over that, and for that, I apologize.
However, does your variant allow for Momentary Blink's Flashback cost to be out of color of your commander? If it doesn't, then you may want to consider Cloudshift, Acrobatic Maneuver, Journey to Nowhere or even Gaze of Justice if you want the last two to be more offensive removal, rather than flickering something of yours.

I'm pretty sure that in Tiny Leaders, much like Commander, your Commander has to be Legendary. The Wayfaring Temple isn't. Looking at your deck, I think Rhys the Redeemed would be your best bet. Sadly, there are only four Tiny Leaders, which makes this particular combination harder to invoke than others without going for a third color.

Then you should keep her in the back of your mind, should your local meta take a swing in that direction. But if you feel she's not a good fit, then there is no reason to include her.

As for potential sideboards, I would look into Guttural Response for dealing with control, an Inferno or two in case someone can get out a big creature fast and you don't have any Heelcutters - or the boardstate has stalled out, and Pyroclasm as a cheaper Volcanic Fallout if your opponent isn't playing control.

I'm confused about the presence of the Talisman of Dominance. You don't need the it gives you. Chromatic Sphere, Chromatic Star, Coldsteel Heart, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens and Silver Myr all are in the same 2-drop, and provide mana without the damage drawback.

You know whom I despise more than anyone else? A certain character who has mediocre cards, and could be forgotten about tomorrow and the story would go on without?
Yeah. I thought so too.
