      What's the success rate in getting this team's lock down in place? I love the idea, but how effective is it?

      Against teams that aren't running insanly fast agro, such as Tsarina and Lantern Ring, the deck wins pretty often. It is for sure not tuned to a competitive level yet, but could be tweaked to match a local meta.

      If your local meta involves walling up and clearing the board before a swing, then this team should do good things for you.

      You don't happen to have a link to this team? I love the way it sounds. I'm a big fan of playing blue in MTG so this definitely fits my play style.
