Bastion Protector Discussion

Hey there Epicurus, this gives me a TON to think about, thank you! I really like the look of AEther Barrier and Sylvan Safekeeper but the shroud part of safekeeper worries me for of course the same reason as Lightning Greaves , and Aether seems a bit risky with my dorks, and things like Giver/ Mother of Runes , etc. However, Stonewood Invocation , Guardian Augmenter , and Ghostly Prison appeal to me greatly, with Swiftfoot Boots coming a close fourth, and I think all most definitely deserve a spot though I'm struggling a bit with the cuts. (By the way I do have Bastion Protector in the deck). Green Sun's Zenith is kind of dumb yeah, it was originally for my dorks and Dryad Arbor but after arbor got cut I kind of forgot about it, and it definitely needs to get out for sure- yet, the deck needs at least one more unblockable spell and I was thinking about cutting it for Infiltrate . Besides this though, I think I can definitely cut Mammoth Growth for Stonewood (Mammoth is a bit slow, especially if you just drew it and need to play it, and the deck relies on speed), leaving Guardian Augmenter and Ghostly Prison for my top scorers, though there are a ton of others you suggested I have to look into. I'll see what I can cut for those. Thank you very much!

Nice build, very creative. Damn, that was a lot to read through, haha.
My impression is that it doesn't have enough protection. The one card that I see in your maybe board for that which I like is Stonewood Invocation , since it doubles as a pump spell. But I would also like traditional protection cards like Heroic Intervention and Swiftfoot Boots (you wouldn't want Lightning Greaves , since they would prevent you from pumping Rafiq). Some other less standard protection cards might include Sylvan Safekeeper , Bastion Protector , Guardian Augmenter , and Shalai, Voice of Plenty . I would maybe pull from your mana-ramp to make room for at least a couple of these, since your mana curve is so low, and your pump spells are so cheap.
As for the disruption category, if it were my deck, I would do it differently. Blue and white have all of the best tax spells. It would take a novel to list them all, but for this deck I would include Ghostly Prison , Propaganda , Kataki, War's Wage , AEther Barrier and Norn's Annex , as well as artifacts like Crawlspace , Defense Grid , Damping Sphere ... this list could go on forever. And I like that you included Silent Arbiter , which makes me want to recommend using Dueling Grounds as well. Especially if you can fit in that Maze of Ith on your maybe board.
And finally, I'm confused by the inclusion of Green Sun's Zenith . What are you searching for with it? Your big pounder is in the command zone, not your library. Are you tutoring mana dorks with it? It doesn't seem entirely necessary. Maybe you can explain the reason to me that I'm not seeing. Frankly, I'd replace it with another land. You only have 32 of those.
Hope any of that helps. Cheers!

No Shielded by Faith? You are already running the other half of the combo in Siona, Captain of the Pyleas. Not to mention it also works well with Jared and Pariah pretty much making your life untouchable.

Great list! I'll add Temporal Mastery to my maybe board and try it out.
You may like Bastion Protector. It's great to get down the turn before Rafiq, makes him indestructible (which is hilarious when paired with Berserk), and buffs him up too.
Also, Miscast might be better than Disdainful Stroke.
