Firemane Avenger is a good budget card, but doesn't really interact with your auras. Tiana, Ship's Caretaker is good too, but I don't know if you want to be playing four copies of a legendary 5-drop. You might want to sub out some of those for Favored Hoplite , Akroan Skyguard , or Graceblade Artisan .

I would actually add a lot more mana ramp, especially mana rocks that tap for colored mana. From what I've experienced, creatures also aren't as relevant. I would shorten your 'Heroic' list of creatures to just a few ( Akroan Conscriptor , Akroan Skyguard , and Tethmos High Priest )

There is also a lot of instant/sorcery ping, which will be viewed as super threatening and could mean a boardwipe with enough of them, which your deck could easily do.

more 1 mana cantrips : Bandage , Cloudshift (with things like Solemn Simulacrum ) Expose Evil

Again, you mainly need more mana (in my opinion)

Here's my build.

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is a good alternate commander, she's pretty cute.

Akroan Skyguard , Akiri, Line-Slinger , Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Sun Titan , Swords to Plowshares , Mother of Runes (the eternal masters version), Damia, Sage of Stone , Jace, Cunning Castaway .

Fist of Suns could be altered to have Thanos' handsome self on it.

There was a shirtless men tribal deck that got a lot of attention, so you could check there for some inspiration.

I might take out a couple of enchantments for a couple more creatures if I were you - it can be a real drag drawing nothing but spells to point at creatures, but have nothing to do with them because your opponent keeps picking off your critters. Akroan Skyguard and Phalanx Leader are both worth considering.

For your spells, I think the single best heroic enabler in blue/white might be View from Above - since all of your creatures are white, it will return to your hand every time you cast it, letting you enable Heroic as many times as you can afford! Hidden Strings is also strongly worth considering - you can tap two blockers before attacking, then untap up to two of your creatures to activate Heroic on them both. Getting a free pair of Heroic triggers so long as you can land a hit on your opponent each turn should wrap up the game quickly!

Akroan Skyguard , Phalanx Leader , and Centaur Battlemaster are all good heroic creatures. Cauldron Haze and Launch the Fleet are good budget options for targeting a bunch of creatures.

I think I just don't own one. But I should definitely get Fabled Hero in here. I could swap it with Akroan Skyguard, that card is underwhelming.

Also I think I need 2-3 more ramp pieces so I can have better "big splice" turns.

eyes2sky,Akroan Skyguard is just so much better than Lagonna-Band Trailblazer.
But it feels really awkward to have all my creatures as 2-drops, I might try it because sometimes Trailblazer justs sits there doing nothing all game, but at least she dosen't die to bolt.
Yes, I often find myself empty handed. But when it happens my opponent is often so near death that any spell kills either by pinging with Firebrand Archer, direct damage ike Lightning Bolt, trampling with Temur Battle Rage or just giving protection from color allowing free passage with Emerge Unscathed.
If I find myself empty handed and my opponent is not near death, that's a lost game for sure.

This looks really brutal +1...have you considered Akroan Skyguard? Such a good beater in a deck like this. Also wondering, do you find yourself with an empty hand often when playing this deck? I'm curious because it looks like you could use some more draw, not many options though besides draw then discard or cantrips.
