My question to you is.....

If I was holding a gun to your head and I said you need to play this deck and you need to do well with it. What changes would you do to it, with out turning it into something total different.

Refresh my memory, but wasnt this deck a fluke?
And that it never seemed to work right?

Mana Drain, Time Walk, and Mystical Tutor are considered staples of blue-based control. Fact or Fiction and Skeletal Scrying less so, but still good. The most obvious slots to cut are, imo, the Tax/Rack engine.

Add fetchlands. They roxor my soxor.

I'd stop with that (which is all somewhat within the original deck)... but only if you were pointing a gun at my head. =)
