I heard having a sideboard is good but cards to consider are spellskite to protect your puresteel paladin and dismember if you're expecting a heavy creature meta. Possible sideboards cards are Leonin Arbiter to slow pod down, some combination of revokes and divines for Tempered steel, and mana leaks for control decks to stop their titans or days from resolving.

Ponder is not a valid replacement for preordain. It's better to just have 4 other slots instead.

Hmm, So Invisible Stalker (Hexproof Tormented Soul) is a nice thought to throw a Blade on. I see you are trying to reenact Caw-Blade there. The problem is you have no early card draw like Hawk gives. But I don't get much of the rest of the deck. I see you are trying to put Mentor, Puresteel, and Trinket Mage in there to combo Huge card draw and substitute for the Carddraw you miss with Caw. But in order to get the Cardraw you are throwing really poor cards in. You have no creature generation or comboing for Mortarpod to be valuable (currently Mortarpod and Basilisk collar, combo for insta kill, but Basilisk is gone). I don't think you have enough Spot removal. 3 Dispatches are cool, but maybe you remove 4 of the less useful equipment for Mana Leak, Oring, or even Dispense Justice. In fact Dispense Justice is one of many cards that will kill your Invisible Stalker even though he is hexproof.

With Caw-Blade, Twin, Valakut, Eldrazi Green all gone, you are going to start to see alot of Tempered Steel, Puresteel decks, and Human. And those decks are going to be FAST!!!. This deck is all weenie creatures but takes a while to ramp up its card draw. By then you will be killed. Think of a typical Tempered Steel Draw. Turn 1 Memnite, Mox Opal, Signal Pest, and maybe one other weenie. Turn 2 Tempered Steel for 11 damage. Not many decks will compete with that draw except Mono-Red or UB control, but at least the other decks will ramp up big by turn 4 or 5. What are your counters? You simply will start to get decent card draw but won't be able to really ramp with all the weenies and no bonuses.
