Pauper Commander UW. Basically Ascended Lawmage and bunch of Auras. The most important auras tend to be:

Benthic Giant is another hexproof-threat, and gets value out of Dragon Scales and Dragon Wings. The two six mana landcyclers are in the deck for the same reason (and to find basic lands). Bastion Inventor from Aether Revolt is another hexproof creature for the deck, and so is Striped Riverwinder from Hour of Devastation.

The deck has a few ways to tutor for the important stuff, namely Drift of Phantasms and Heliod's Pilgrim.

Quite a few creatures bring a token with them on ETB (Eldrazi Skyspawner, Seller of Songbirds, Attended Knight) to make opponents' creature sacrifice effects that much worse.

Wretched Gryff is a decent-sized flyer and gets value out creatures that have already done their job (most creatures have an ETB-trigger). Angelic Purge is also good removal for a common.

There are a few creatures with Exalted to boost the lone striker, and some randomly impressive commons (Seeker of the Way, Kor Cartographer, Mulldrifter). There's also a smattering of countermagic (Counterspell, Muddle the Mixture, Condescend).

Monk Idealist and Dragon Wings is a nice little engine to cycle through the deck.

Removal is mostly enchantments (Journey to Nowhere, Pacifism-effects, Oblivion Ring) with a few instants for good measure (Celestial Flare, Last Breath).
