You should put more creatures. Take out 1 Tormenting Voice, 1 Dinosaur Stampede and 2 Act of Heroism and put Sun-Blessed Mount, Etali, Primal Storm or something.

The way the stack works, you'd have Murder on the bottom, because your opponent cast it. Act of Heroism would be on the stack next, as your response. Casting this triggers Ojutai Exemplars, which means their trigger is on the stack above Act of Heroism, and thus resolves first, so your Exemplars would flicker before anything else happens.

Unfortunately, the Exemplars permanent that returns to the battlefield is a different permanent than the one Act of Heroism targeted, so your Act of Heroism would fizzle. Luckily for you, the same applies to your opponent's Murder.

The spell you cast, Act of Heroism, requires a target. Once you have that target leave the battlefield the spell Act of Heroism is invalid. Just as if you cast Cloudshift instead to avoid the Murder.

I know this doesn't answer your question exactly but it has the result of not working as is.

In a recent game, I played Ojutai Exemplars. An opponent played a removal spell (let's say Murder) targeting Ojutai Exemplars. In response to the casting of Murder, I cast Act of Heroism from my hand. My goal was to use the third ability of Ojutai Exemplars, which reads: "Whenever you cast a noncreaure spell, ... Exile Ojutai Exemplars, then return it to the battlefield tapped under its owner's control". My goal was to have the Ojutai Exemplars ability resolve first, then have Act of Heroism resolve, leaving me with an untapped 6/6 Ojutai Exemplars. However, my opponent says that Act of Heroism must resolve first, so Ojutai Exemplars would become tapped. Is this true?

Provoke seems to work amazingly with First-Strike.So things like Cartouche of Solidarity and Ethereal Armor is where it excels.

For Extert you should consider Act of Heroism, Copperhorn Scout,Dauntless Aven,Mobile Garrison,Seeker of Skybreak, Veteran's Reflexes and Village Bell-Ringer

I like it! Seems like you might be able to drop two of the Act of Heroisms for a couple swords to plowshares or path to exiles for spot removal just in case your opponent gets out an early Demon to counter your angelic army!

Good luck.~BoS

Very nice! And nice background work too :)

You seem to have most of what you need. Tight list. Most of the stuff I initially thought of are already here.

One thought I have for you though would be some untap instants. Djeru's Resolve, Act of Heroism, Refocus, and Tidal Bore. These will basically serve as counters spells and combat tricks with some added utility, like buffing and drawing a card. Something to test perhaps.

Otherwise, very nice look. Reminds me of my friend's first commander deck :)

What about Pride of Conquerors instead of Act of Heroism. With the Cartouche of Solidarity and Oketras monument you'll create plenty of vigilence tokens so the untapping won't matter that much. You'll probably have the city blessing without a problem
