Basic idea of the deck is to lock down the opponent's creatures, then either mill them with Jace, win with fillibuster counters, or just damage them to death with archon.

I do not wish to add another color to this deck.
I do not wish to drastically change the core idea behind the deck.


Suggestions?

 Milling with Jace only works in certain matchups.
Trust me when I say you aren't really going to win with filibuster counters in standard. Maybe..casual standard but definitely not in a competitive standard event.

If "being open minded" means using the same green turbo fog build as everyone else, I'm not interested.
You could start with cutting a Win-Condition.  The deck needs more focus on doing 1 thing well.  Milling and Fillibustering luckily need about the same support to work so you could easily run those 2 and just cut your Archon beatz.

You're ideal solution would be to add in Green for some Fog, but you're against that.  You could run a bunch of MD Sweepers and Countermagic and hope that it's enough, but it could be risky.

We're trying to help, but if you won't consider something we think will be the better overall inclusion, you're not making it easy.  At best we'll give you sub-optimal advice.

Not trying to be difficult here, I just don't want to use the same deck everyone else is.
Since there isn't an effective Howling Mine or similar card in Standard right now, I don't think many people will try for this route unless they can hand over the cash for 4 Snapcaster Mage, because he's the only way they'll be able to ensure they can play enough Fogs in order to prevent Aggro from killing them.

If you do find someone else with the same deck, it won't be because it's "what everyone else is doing" it's'll be because "these are the cards that make the deck work the best".

winning is winning, don't play medicore cards or decks just for the sake of being different.  there's nothing heroic about it.

besides, there really isn't anyone playing a straight up UW control deck, most people adopt a 3rd color or go for some niche style of building the deck.

There is the occassional Azorius control deck as piloted by Edgar Flores and others. It seems good with him placing top 16 in the two events I seen him play with it in. But I'm on the tri-color control bandwagon myself. We have the mana fixing. So why not?

but, in all fairness, those deck lists are very outdated.  UW control hasn't been a thing since after the 2nd week of this existing metagame.
