Also trying to build a Bruna deck. Some cards that I'm going to be testing that are good to chuck into your graveyard along with your auras: Chemister's Insight , Deep Analysis and Glory . I think you should find room for Frantic Search as well as its card draw as well as a way to get auras into the yard. An aura that I'm hoping will really pull its weight is Curious Obsession .

Finally, since you're playing Cole, I would suggest considering Scribe of the Mindful instead of Archaeomancer. In my estimation it's a turn quicker. If you draw it early game, you can put it out a turn sooner as a chump. PLUS, neither creature will typically get you a recurred card until T4 anyway, and with the Scribe, you will have more mana left over to actually cast the card you recur. If you were playing Jim or Anthony, I would say don't bother, but Cole, man, fuck... you need every advantage you can get.

Additionally, Ancestral Vision and the others like it can be cast using it!

Living Death is a classic gravepower card that can help you win the game in one or two turns. It fits in pretty well with what you're doing already.
Grim Discovery is similar to Aid the Fallen, and can help keeping up with the early and midgame curve. Hermit Druid also helps keep your hand stocked with land early game, and lets you throw a bunch of creatures/other cards into your grave.
Covenant of Minds is great draw power in a deck like this, and can be used politically as well. Foster can not only help your creatures replace themselves, it can throw some more cards into your graveyard on the way.
Genesis Wave is a fun way to throw a bunch of permanents on the board for free, and everything else into the graveyard. The nice thing is the effect isn't compulsory, so you can choose to throw a particular creature into the grave if you want.
Try Phyrexian Delver , too. It's a great two-for-one because the creature it brings back hits the battlefield immediately.

Blue has similar effect, sadly the best ones are spell focused, i mean cards like Pieces of the Puzzle .
Hence i would recommend trying to build a RBx deck if you want to stick with the "delve" theme.
If you want to play esper i would look around esper draw go control, esper gifts, and the midrange-y esper obzedat/goryo's vengeance lists. Oh and Myth Realized decks are also in color. (There is also ad nauseam, but i doubt that is what you are looking for)

Anybody think this is worthy of a singleton slot in U/W Control?

In terms of what to cut, Crab Umbra does protect your commander from a board wipe and lets you untap, but it doesn't help with Dralnu's painful downside and there are more efficient ways to untap your commander. Corrupted Conscience also seems a bit random in your deck, since it doesn't really synergize with anything, though it's still a powerful card. Unwind seems like the weakest and narrowest of your counters, of which you already plenty. Nightveil Sprite is a great card in 60-card constructed, but might fall short in a multi-player, 100-card format.
Great deck! I do not look forward to playing against you...
