Selesnya has access to all of white's great removal. Swords, Journey, Wrath... Though, if she is running tokens, then Reprisal and Retribution of the Meek may work better for her hero problem.
For Dimir, I would just similarly run some spot removal. Nothing bothers an aura like watching it hit the bin after your target is bounced/doomed/kill-destroyed.

I think the Deathcult Rogue is a bit slower than anything else you're playing without offering a substantial bonus. True-Name Nemesis would be a solid replacement, Oona's Prowler is alright in a build like this as well.Posted in: Casual & Related Formats
I would drop Unholy Strength, letting Cloak and Dagger hold up the pump, then just run Morsel Theft, you'll hit the Prowl with your critter line-up.

Non-intensive multiplayer combo that wants more cards.Posted in: Casual & Related Formats
False Cure + 4x Skyshroud Cutter and/or Reverent Silence (or a 2 Cures and half the greens)
With duals or shocks you can easily run this as a deck. Which make it crazy with this format's rules.
T1: Tutor, Mana Severance, or set up your next draw with Ancestral Knowledge.
T2: Usually win?
You can fill it out with things like Manamorphose, manaless cycling, and Pact of Negation protection.

I feel Recurring Nightmare pumps while cycling creatures (or tokens into cards). We could also run Karador, Ghost Chieftain with Bounty, generating 2 or more creatures per use of his ability.might be stronger than . The former gives things to play around with reusing the graveyard, Posted in: Casual & Related Formats

I think Messenger bears repeating. I'm happy to have it while ballooning up or recovering from sweepers.

Decks don't need themes, but the human brain does. There are many things we necessarily categorize for survival or social interaction as well as things we categorize for ease of communication. Decks themes probably fall primarily in the latter batch, and we apply themes to decks that don't really have any theme to speak of. For instance, 'Goodstuff' decks just use whatever spells are efficient and brutal in whichever color combinations, but to quickly reach understanding we say 'Goodstuff' thereby communicating a common link between cards which may or may not have any flavorful theme between them.Posted in: Casual & Related Formats

Ninjas like little evasive critters to allow them to sneak through. Ornithopter sees use for this.Posted in: Casual & Related Formats
Shelter would also be a good way to get some use out of your ninjas combat triggers, speaking of, any particular reason you are opting not to run Ninja of the Deep Hours?

I think Winston is the best 2 person draft format. And since it is randomized from the start, you can redraft the same packs repeatedly while putting together different builds.Posted in: Casual & Related Formats
This means you could splurge on some pricier old packs (since you only need 6 total) and draft some Ravnica, Onslaught, Mirage, Stronghold, or whatever strikes your fancy.

Short answer, the same reasons you put ramp in quotes.
Middling answer. Coracle lacks support spells to make it abusable, Treespeaker lacks elves to cause explosions, and creature sweepers are more common than artifact and land sweepers.
