hello and welcome to the forum

please autocard your cards
either individually like so: [c]Island[/c] => Island
or the whole deck like so
[deck]24 Swamp
36 Relentless Rats[/deck]
=>


generally speaking without knowing all the cards
less 1-ofs and more 4-ofs
decide which cards are your best and run 4 copies of them

Did as you asked, and this is what I have. Didn't have many multiples of some of my better cards.

Post the deck list as you would want it ideally, solicit feedback, and then use it to find out which cards you need to buy or trade for.

Here are two good articles that I recommend:

Building Your First Deck

Magic the Classroom: The Rule of Nine

I would suggest getting some Gates from RTR. Azorius Guildgate will allow you to play either color, they aren't expensive to buy and although many people will tell you to dump money into Shock Lands I wouldn't worry about it for now. I would cut out the mill theme. You don't have enough cards to make it worth your while. White/Blue does great at control so perhaps look into some counterspells like Mana Leak or Dissipate. Oblivion Ring is great (or just get more Fiend Hunter). I would also play Captain of the Watch since you have lots of stuff for token generation and she buffs other soldier creatures.
