Naya splash black or blue?

I'm trying to revamp my Naya deck and would like some insight / feedback as to whether to go with black or blue?

If black, I can use:

Olivia Voldarenc
Rakdos's Return
Lingering Souls

If Blue, I can use:

Sphinxs' Revelation
Jace, Architect of Thought
Supreme Verdict
Azorius Charm

Thoughts? 

Main cards in deck are:

Centaur Healers, Borderland Rangers, Huntmaster of the Fells, Thragtusk, Restoration Angel, Angel of Serenity
Go for the black and add unburial rites to the list, it can get some great value.  While the blue cards are good, they just aren't what you want to be doing in naya (beating down).

Why does everyone think I'm phantom lancer? QFT:

I'd also bet there is an entity floating thousands of miles above us, looking down on the current state of game, shaking its fist like... "Wtf are you doing?! You're getting it all screwed up!". Awkward—to be evolved, and yet still subject to the ladder that is the concepts of the game. In this case, misconception, corruption, and deception. With the realities of each color becoming distorted (through oblivious designers), leading the game to reflect a false state of reality that warps the understanding that other people have about those things. For example, people thinking that white could be anything except pure good. This shouldn't be too far off though, I mean...Magic is designed based on reality after all, so that entity (those entities) should be subject to those things. Anyways, I guess when you're busy doing space stuff you can't always be around to ensure quality control. It's no wonder they choose Garfield, they're so much alike; that's exactly what happened to him and Magic.

black is ultimately better, blue doesn't really give you anything.  amongst the blue cards you listed, only the revelation should be run in a "zoo" list.

as for black, don't forget to run slaughter games in your board 

Blue is the best color ever. How do you deal?  ------------------------------  Team GFG - "gulf, foxtrot, gulf"

If B_F is rejecting blue, you know it has to be right.
