The Problem with Ghostly Prison and Propaganda is that they don't protect your planeswalkers, try using Silent Arbiter and Dueling Grounds

I play Mystic Barrier Silent Arbiter and Meekstone in my superfriends deck. Not sure how creature heavy your meta is. I also play Karmic Justice to threaten my opps lands if they screw with my pws.

Have you considered a Deepglow Skate or Flux Channeler?

I once accidentally took unlimited turns by flickering a Deepglow Skate with Venser, the Sojourner while I controlled an Oath of Teferi and Teferi, Master of Time so I love the card lmao.

Nice build!

If you're just trying to play defensively I think the upside of Silent Arbiter stopping wide swings will come up more often than it does nothing against voltron decks. Especially if you have something indestructible or pro-creatures to block with.

Just don't cast it if your opponent's on a voltron deck.

Myriad maybe? Attack all opponents at once so you get multiple Goads?

The Red spells that steal a creature for a turn do double duty here. You don't need to waste your guys attacking/goading and maybe you remove a blocker as well. Captivating Crew does it every round.

If a player has a Goaded creature and you have Silent Arbiter only the creature you chose can attack. That's some serious control.

This deck looks really fun to play!

I'll throw two suggestions your way that may help you deal with more of the table:

Silent Arbiter can slow your opponents down long enough for you to get a few more combat turns in and Triumph of the Hordes can also take out multiple opponents at once.

Hope they help!

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!

Captivating Crew could be a good card. Steal a creature, swing with it, and give it to another opponent. The creature is not returned to the original opponent since 'you control it until end of turn', but since you don't control it anymore, nothing gets returned. And since Blim's ability only says something about controlling cards they don't own, those creatures will also count.

Silent Arbiter and Smoke are good to limit aggression.

How good is Master of the Feast in your testing? I can't imagine that giving your opponent a 5/5 flying demon that can block you commander would outweigh the one card you draw per turn.

Overall looks like a really fun deck :)
