So i was looking to make a T2 deck that is functionally UW Control.

As of currently my deck is
21 Lands
4 Nimbus Maze
4 Adarkar Wastes
2 New Benalia
6 Islands
5 Plains

28 Spells
2 Mind Spring
4 Think twice
3 Snapback
3 Wrath of God
3 Pact of Negation
4 Mana Tithe
4 Delay
4 Rune Snag
1 Commandeer

11 Creatures
2 Guile
3 Soltari Priest
2 White Shild Crusader
4 Vexing Sphinx

2 Commandeer
3 Condemn
3 Pollen Lullaby
1 White Shield Crusader
3 Evacuation
3 Persuasion

I really only seem to have a problem vs Aggro decks, control decks i win because of counters, Doran is no problems if you take out their mana base. Black decks are a bit of a pain G1 once i bring in commandeer's its all over. Pollen Lullaby works Wonderfully vs faeries and other token decks because it buys my one turn and possiblly 2 turns. The only thing that i dont have is spot removal which is a slight problem.

Any suggestions on creature choices OTHER THAN VEXING SPHINX, would be greatly appreciated.

UW reveillark blink is also a control deck. How is this one better, except perhaps in the mirror?

Your win conditions sucks. You need better ones.

Sacred Mesa
Razormane Masticore
Feudkiller's Verdict
Aeon Chronicler
Sower of Temptation

How about a build like this:

24 Lands

4 Nimbus Maze
4 Adarkar Wastes
4 Terramorphic Expanse
4 Plains
7 Island
1 Urza's Factory

28 Spells

4 Wrath of God
4 Rune Snag
4 Cryptic Command
4 Mana Tithe
4 Oblivion Ring
4 Foresee
4 Think Twice

8 Creatures

3 Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir
3 Razormane Masticore
2 Venser, Shaper Savant


3 Feudkiller's Verdict
3 Sower of Temptation
3 Tormod's Crypt
3 Pithing Needle
3 Flashfreeze

I'm not sold on the Mana Tithes, but the build looks solid, both in terms of curve and card quality. You have Verdict out of the board vs burn, Crypt vs the rev combo, Needle for manlands, etc... You can also fit in a Disenchant for the pesky Bitterblossom. Honorable mentions for a singleton Akroma or Austere Command, as well as a couple of Crovax

However, I don't think it is as good or as versatile as the tier 1 decks (MRB, Faeries, Lark)

700th post!!!

Okie I am going to expand on what Ved posted. You really need more lands. I would play 24-26 lands. I have some cuts and adds that would give the deck a lot more game vs most of the field.

-4 Mana Tithe
-4 Terramorphic Expance (no 'Goyf food plz)
-4 Foresee
-4 Think Twice
-1 O-Ring
-1 Razormane

+4 Storeage lands or Mutavalut
+4 Mind Stone/Coldsteel/Relic
+3 Aeon (Razormane food)
+3 Condemn (spot removal)
+2 Crovax (blossom answer)
+2 Mind Spring (storeage) or Austere Command.

i like how people say things like "this deck looses to aggro," and ask for advice, when they do stupid things like run only 3 main deck WoGs and none sb.
