Notes/Comments:
The mana curve on this deck is way out of whack (check the deckstats link), but it has enough early game control elements to hold on until it starts dropping hard to deal with flier after hard to deal with flier.

Archetype of Imagination? I get that all your stuff already flies, but "My board is unblockable" still seems worth having, no?

Yeah I definitely considered it. It's always nice to ground the inevitable dragons that are somewhere on the table. Will add to the want list

What, no Glasses of Urza (and Trinket Mage)? Ingenious Thief? I didn’t check the whole list because I’m on my phone, but Unsummon effects are a nice way to both clear blockers and guess right when you connect with Isperia.

Trinket Mage doesn't fly, so that's out.

Ingenious Thief is cool! I'll have to look around for a copy of it :)

Glasses of Urza, even though they're cheap, don't really do a enough to warrant a full card. I did have a lot more bounce effects in the deck for exactly that reason, but I tuned it more to be a U/W control list with a theme than focussing solely on Isperia's ability. Having said that, bounce + counter is a pretty effective control strategy and it's something I do keep coming back to; in theory I could cut down on the number of creatures and add a fair bit more bounce so I know what I'm naming, and can therefore search out more reliably. What would you cut?

Wardscale Dragon seems a little underwhelming for the cost, but I suppose that depends on your meta game. I find that my Isperia deck is always mana hungry, so Vengeful Archon seems difficult to maximize. Flying creatures get expensive and I always have more cards in hand than I can cast, much less leave mana open for that.
