If you play Nephalia Drownyard without any black mana, you're gonna have a bad time.
Sorry wrong land I was looking drownyard up for anotger deck I meant to put Evolving Wilds

in that case, azorius guildgate is just better

actually... you only have 22 lands.   bump that up to 26 lands ASAP.  and i'll help you get there.

-2 cloudshift
-2 inaction injunction

+4 lands (probably some basics and some ghost quarters)

Do you really think I need four more lands? Because the deck has been running really good with only 22 lands. There have been some games that I have been mana flooded drawing land after land. But when gatecrash comes out I am changing the deck to esper and that is when I will add the drownyard. I am unsure about droping the above mentioned spells they both have helped me out a lot along the way. I use conjunction junction for early game agro and cloudshift to help protect my creatures from removal.
yes.  most experienced control players will agree that you need a higher land count to really survive games.  even legacy control decks typically play about 24 lands, and they have a significantly lower mana curve.  if you feel you're flooding too much, you need to run more card draw.  having solid card draw really is the foundation of any worthwhile control deck.

also, geist is pretty terrible in these types of decks.  its fine for the sideboard, but its not where you want to be maindeck.

you have a number of good things going, but you just need to shore up the loose ends.

I agree with Buring_Forest that you should bump up the land count. Also, I'd play Terminus over Supreme Verdict.

This is a deck build I've been using as a Primer for my own UW Control

zombies and the like are less of a think, so supreme verdict's stock has been rising.
