Decent list, needs more firespout, my suggestion is -4 negate +3 broken amb -1 wog and +2 spout, Also, your manabase seems a little devoid of red/black sources, try replacing the esper trilands with the grixis ones.

do not play broken ambitions, it is not nearly as good as remove soul or negate especialy as a one of in the deck because when you draw it l8 game they can always pay for it or they just counter it w/ a better counter spell.

You also don't seem to be taking advantage of the fact that you do have 5 colors to work with. Condemn and pyroclasm might be good to test with and cloudthresher might also be good either main or sideboard. Bant charm is a decent card to test out.

I agree with Bant charm, I've been trying it out and its been working great. In regards to the one broken ambition, I use it mainly because I've been running into A) Faeries (alot) and B) 'planeswalker' deck. Personally I hate the early Bitterblossom drop and try to counter it at all possible. I'd prefer to use my Charm's for drawing then destroying enchantments, and Remove soul doesn't counter Planeswalkers where is broken ambition does. As for the other one slots, well you don't need more then one nucklave its really only there for the LATE game i.e grabbing Cruel Ultimatum and a counter, The one makeshift is just there for the late game as well. The deck has a ton's of card draw so you would be surprised at how often you see those one slots. Luck has nothing to do with it.
