First off, Ice Cage is awful and shouldn't be played in any deck except for your five-color-control draft deck.
Pick up another Tamiyo, she's good to have as a two-or-three of.
Mana Leak and Thought Scours are both four-ofs in your deck. Get Ponder and Snapcaster Mage. Day of Judgement and Terminus are both going to be good, along with Entreat the Angels as your finisher. 
If you feel like building a control and don't really care about your colors, look up a deck called Esper Superfriends, or Esper Walkers.
If Wizards put hundred dollar bills in each pack, players would complain that they weren't folded right.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

What is your budget and your restrictions(can you only play standard or are you a casual player?)

White/blue is not really supported in the most recent block. But is very well supported in a more casual environment. In standern the counterspells are getting worse and the anti counter hate cards are getting better.

The first question is are you willing or able to pick up a couple more taimyo? If you are going to base your card draw on her you need to be able to get her consistently.

Here is a white/blue deck that features taimyo, the main problem of course is that it is very hard to play well. It should be cheap except for the taimyos and perhaps the mistbind cliques. It requires knowing the stack and the flash rules well.

(basic white blue faeries deck) It is not standard or modern legal. Casual or legacy would be fine.
