Winged Words is just a draw 2 for 3 mana in your deck since you don't have any (flying) creatures, so any other draw spell would likely work better. Omen of the Sea would be a good example.

Conclave Tribunal is also hard to justify in a deck with no creatures since you can't make use of the Convoke, might as well just run some Banishing Light instead.

Typically any control deck that plays will play a few copies of Teferi, Time Raveler and Elspeth Conquers Death, which I would highly recommend. It could even bring back Ugin, the Spirit Dragon from the graveyard if you discarded it to Chemister's Insight jump-start.

Chandra's Outrage is pretty expensive at 4 mana for what it does, you could run Storm's Wrath instead for something that has much more impact on the board.

Jaya's Greeting is fun but compared to something like Scorching Dragonfire, the scry1 really isn't worth it when you could have the option to hit a planeswalker and having them be exiled on top of it.

You could try to include some Fabled Passage in your mana base instead of some of the tap lands, I'm sure you'd much rather draw that than a Swiftwater Cliffs if you're waiting for your 8th land to play Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.

I really don't think this deck needs Clear the Mind. You won't mill yourself, and on the off-chance you'll happen to draw it against a mill deck, you might as well run anything else that will be far more useful to you.

Hopefully these suggestions are helpful, cheers!

Infinity_Dragon_Blade Thanks, and glad to hear others had the same idea. I'm already at 3 Winged Words, and I don't think running 3 Frantic Inventory to go up to 4 Winged Words is a good trade-off - in playtesting I like the instant-speed draw.

That's a cool looking deck. I had a similar idea. I think Duress is a good one drop to enable turn 3 storm wing. One suggestion I have is repalicing Frantic Inventory with Winged Words since all of your creatures have flying and it has a better failcase.

Nice! There are three other cards to consider for budget UW flyers: Sky Tether, Winged Words, and Rally of Wings. Rally is seriously one of the best combat tricks out there.

Well, Divination is not allowed in Standart, however there is a card with does the same thing and could be cheaper to cast, because the are some flying creatures in the deck, its Winged Words.

In my experience, Lotus Petal, Miscalculate, and Brainstorm are really underwhelming in this format. The conditions that make them great cards in other formats just aren't present in PDH most of the time.

Winged Words and Secrets of the Golden City are generally much better than Brainstorm.

Doublestrike spells are good enough that I'd consider running more of them, like Uncaged Fury.

Into the Roil is outstanding, I'm glad to see it on your list. Did you know there is another one?

Confound is a tiny bit more versatile than Keep Safe, since it can shut down your opponent putting auras on their stuff. Probably wise to run both.
