Chances of actually playing still don't look good, but I'm kind of committed to deck charting as a bit of a hobby, in addition to the usual "get this thing fine-tuned first thing so that you don't waste early money on needless cards" situation.

Anyway, I finally cottoned on to the fact that expecting a deck to win while just trundling along probably isn't going to be that effective in most cases (read: I wasn't that aware of needing to include some cards as dedicated win conditions). So now I have to figure out what to vector in without messing up the deck's mechanisms of creature-removal-via-combat.

Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest

Alluring Siren
Archon of the Triumvirate
Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice
Balduvian Warlord
Balefire Liege
Boros Battleshaper
Boros Reckoner
Captivating Crew
Coveted Peacock
Dominus of Fealty
Dragonlord Ojutai
Forgestoker Dragon
Giver of Runes
Identity Thief
Iroas, God of Victory
Jhessian Balmgiver
Lavinia of the Tenth
Lyev Skyknight
Mesmerizing Benthid
Odric, Master Tactician
Sage-Eye Avengers
Soulblade Djinn
Sower of Temptation
Warden of the Eye
Warkite Marauder

As Foretold
Bident of Thassa
Brave the Sands
Close Quarters
Ghostly Prison
Glory of Warfare (Gleam of Battle is kind of expensive, compared to this)
Martial Law
Military Intelligence
Stand or Fall
Street Riot

Armillary Sphere
Commander's Sphere
Forebear's Blade
Grappling Hook
Rogue's Gloves
Sol Ring
Sword of Feast and Famine
Thaumatic Compass
Vorrac Battlehorns
Wayfarer's Bauble

Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer
Nahiri, Storm of Stone

Amass the Components
Mystic Retrieval
Open into Wonder
Seething Anger
Time Wipe

Boros Charm
Chemister's Trick
Master Warcraft
Orim's Chant (and/or Moonhold?)
Response // Resurgence
Shattering Pulse
Swords to Plowshares
Valorous Stance

LANDS (36)
Cascade Bluffs
Clifftop Retreat
Command Tower
Fiery Islet
Glacial Fortress
Hallowed Fountain
Irrigated Farmland
Meteor Crater
Mystic Gate
Mystic Monastery
Rugged Prairie
Sacred Foundry
Slayers' Stronghold
Steam Vents
Sulfur Falls
Sunbaked Canyon
Temple of the False God
Windbrisk Heights

With regard to win conditions, I've been told I already have two charted, Odric and Open into Wonder. Unfortunately, my mind's running a bit blank as to what else out there would qualify.

Note that once my application has Throne of Eldrayne cards vectored in, I will find a way to get The Royal Scions in. Probably at Street Riot's expense.

If Open into Wonder is your style, why not add some more of the same? Artful Dodge and Distortion Strike come to mind. Both can mean one near-dead opponent by turn five. Also, Reckless Charge.

You could also run other creatures that are naturally unblockable and give Shu Yun's double strike to them.

Skullclamp should probably be mentioned, too, as well as Infiltration Lens

I could be wrong. I'm just not in the mood.
