The Quiet Storm

The thunderclouds roll in for a slow build and reign death from the sky... This deck is meant to be an unusual and playful approach to blending white/blue/black archetypes. I was inspired to construct this around a few cards that caught my attention from among cards I happened to have: Windwright Mage , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Psychic Intrusion , Etherwrought Page , Agent of Masks , and Alluring Siren . They seemed to suggest a strange, almost gothic, synergy, and strange, ghostly, sneaky, and fun became my keywords. And of course lovely, dark, moody art. I am also excited to include two Origins planeswalkers with interesting mechanics, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy   and Liliana, Heretical Healer  , which flip from creature to planeswalker. (If only they had one like that for Elspeth, too!) I've had some success in early tests on this deck so far, with a few possible weak points. I'm wanting to tweak and retest. I'm wondering which cards from my "maybe board" (partly a wish list), or my so-far-sideboard, might be best to grab.

One big question still on my mind is the commander. Currently I have Dromar, the Banisher , but I have also considered Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign who worked well when I tested the deck with a borrowed Yennett; the mysterious Sen Triplets ; and the formidable Oloro, Ageless Ascetic . Feel free to suggest or discuss, and thanks!

NOTE: TappedOut mixes my mana rocks and ramp in with the non-land cards, so I'm afraid my mana stats are not accurate in the graphics along the right here. Does anyone know if there is any way to fix this?
