Holy Day is a sweet card, I do not want to run more than 10 fog effects though. It was between Holy Day and Riot Control. Ultimately I went with Riot Control since it's a fog that prevents all damage instead of just combat damage. Riot Control also is a one sided fog effect so if the attacker is swinging for lethal on multiple players or if my opponent casts Earthquake, Riot Control will only save me and not the other players.

You could add Holy Day. No one expects a fog when your holding up a single white mana

I love the idea of playing curses and I think you've got a lot of good cards. I playtested it a few times and have some notes:

I'd def include 1-2 Hall of Heliod's Generosity.

I'd cut at least all 4xDuress, if not all 4xInquisition of Kozilek, too. Having 8 discard spells favors early game play but I think it puts you at a disadvantage later in the game.The enchantment curses are geared toward a slow game, eeking out a win around T10. By that time, there are fewer, if any viable targets for Duress, let alone Inquisition of Kozilek. On top of that, you have 8 removal spells, 4 of which double as a boardwipe, and also Torment of Hailfire, so you have effective means of shutting opponents down.

Damn seems like a fantastic fit here, providing a useful boardwipe as well as early spot removal.

Vindicate also seems like a great spell here, providing a broad range of removal making it always useful. That said, at 3MV, if half or even all the discard spells were cut, Revoke Existence or Disenchant would be good additions in the sideboard.

I think I'd either use the slots freed up by cutting discard spells to increase the number of creatures, or I'd cut the 3 defenders entirely. They're not likely to help much with so few numbers. I'm leaning toward cutting them. There are better ways to gain life and draw cards and they're not blocking for much.

If you cut all the creatures and discard spells, you'd have 11 slots to give you an edge. I think you'd want to maintain the MVs of the cut spells, keeping everything to 2MV or less. Darkness/Holy Day could be decent. Fatal Push and Path to Exile also. I think 4xNight's Whisper or some other draw spell would be good, though only if it's drawing at least 2 cards for MV 3 or less.

Since you're playing a long game, Dark Petition might be a possible option.

Overwhelming Splendor is an awesome spell, but even with one copy, the prospects of hardcasting it from a draw seem slim.

Work on a sideboard that can help you against your worst matchups. In addition to Revoke Existence or Disenchant, Infernal Reckoning, Tainted Remedy, Extirpate, Everlasting Torment, Ratchet Bomb, and Elixir of Immortality might be good options.

I've been working on my own version of this set, and I gotta say you made some great choices.

Some suggestions:

Otherwise, I love it, and I'll be using some of this in mine!

MortisAngelus - overall, this looks pretty good to me. If it were my deck, I'd be looking for 6 cards to cut to make room for 2-3 removal, 2-3 draw/tutor, and 2-3 counter/protection spells. Rest in Peace is in too many sideboards. I'm sure there are plenty of other threats, too. I feel like if I can devote at least a few slots in a deck to those three (removal, draw, protect) utilities, it's much easier to have an effective sideboard.

Cards below are just off the top of my head and should be considered as examples and standards.

removal: Path to Exile / Oblivion Ring

draw/tutor: Sign in Blood , Mastermind's Acquisition

protection: Ephemerate , Gods Willing , Holy Day , Riot Control

Final concern: Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit is Legendary, so 4x might not be great?

I only have not included Insurrection , because it was a "throw stuff i have lying around together deck". But you are right, it fits 110%. And Holy Day is perfect. I like cheap, situational, but therefore impactful cards such as this one :)
