The Azorius Senate Deems Your Actions…. Unnecessary: Modern UW Control

Okok, I gave it up once. now we’re back. I want to play blue in modern again. But I don’t want to play a blue deck like Storm, or Grixis Shadow. I just don’t like the move to Terminate/Fatal Push over counter magic.
I want to play true control. I wanna jam Cryptic Command, lock my opponent out of the game through basically every form of denial. I wanna be the unfun Blue player at the kitchen table!
Sadly that’s not quite doable, but here’s the initial list:

Main:
4 Celestial Colonnade
3 Cryptic Command
2 Detention Sphere
4 Flooded Strand
4 Ghost Quarter
1 Gideon Jura
2 Glacial Fortress
3 Hallowed Fountain
3 Island
2 Jace, Architect of Thought
2 Logic Knot
1 Negate
4 Path to Exile
2 Plains
3 Polluted Delta
1 Secure the Wastes
4 Serum Visions
2 Snapcaster Mage
2 Spell Snare
1 Sphinx’s Revelation
4 Spreading Seas
2 Supreme Verdict
1 Temple of Enlightenment
2 Wall of Omens
1 Wrath of God

Sideboard:
1 Celestial Purge
1 Condemn
1 Crucible of Worlds
1 Dispel
1 Elspeth, Sun’s Champion
1 Grafdigger’s Cage
2 Negate
2 Rest in Peace
3 Stony Silence
2 Timely Reinforcements

I’ll be running through some testing, but I feel “fairly” confident in the list. But hey. The only way to be sure is to actually play it.
