Against a lot of aggro, schemers can be Bruma Profiteer. Mages trick can be crushing blow, but right now mages trick is awesome because it kills thing.

Why no Paarth? Also why College?

Parth is too slow in every single matchup except the control mage mirror. College helps every single matchup.

Where's my bae Lydia?

lydia is a decent card but it's so weak to removal you only play it control decks that don't have a choice
Lydia it's a very nice guard that can mess things up for your enemy, if short of units or spell to one shot it you may also have unit to end the game but oops on the wrong side of the field and can't do anything. She is really a smart card, need to play her whisely
@Imperatrix Lydia may be a strong guard herself but with the amount of lethal creatures (tempo green for example) shes a weak option.
With her defending both sides is also the greatest weakness here.

Lydia is just a better version of Hive Defender, thats like saying not to play Hive Defenders because they are weak to removal? I find her very useful vs token decks idk...

Lydia is a much worse version of hive defender because she does not cost 4 mana, and because her effect is a downside occasionally.

The key point to consider is that guards are meant to protect both yourself and your creatures. A guard that can be reached through both lanes introduces new avenues for an opponent to trade efficiently with one side of the board that would have otherwise been awkward to contest had there simply been a Hive Defender in place.

Lydia is still a useful card, but she is not a strict upgrade.
Fire storm instead of elusive to face aggro could work?

Why no Arrest for The Scout Combo with Soul Tear and Parthunaxx? I am Thinking to cut 1 Dawns Wrath for 1 Arrest.

Because you still get wrecked by scout even with Arrest :P . Not worth teching for scout, just try to SMOrc them,

Hi Romanesque ! Any replacement for "college of winterhold" ? It seems hard to find nice spells value in another card :( ... thank you for sharing by the way
Have you tried couldron keeper over knight of the hour to get more value out of winterhold?

it's absolutely not worth it. You need the high prophecy count.

seems not LUL
Uhh, just play lydia. No other real replacement.
how about orb of vaermina for college? since it's very good against other control decks

You don't want to build this deck to beat other control decks, it's not designed for that. Play this deck when you see lots of aggro.
