Blue skies can be a very powerful deck in this format, so long as you are taking the right approach.  No 3-cc cards in this deck, that's going to be a bit much.  Here's the battle plan

1. play a cheap threat

2 protect it with everything you got.

Pretty simple concept right?  Here's the deck

4 spindrift drake                                                                                                              
4 cloud sprite                                                                                                                      
4 flying men                                                                                                                     
3 balduvan conjurer

4 rushing river
4 force of will                                                                         
1 thwart
4 counterspell
3 mana leak
4 gush
3 windfall (great synergy with gush and thwart

19 island
2 maze of ith

windfall is flat out broken, and works great with the whole return islands to your hand thing.  I couldn't think of anything better than the rushing rivers, so I'm pretty open suggestions as far as replacements go.
