I'm 70% built. Have finished the deck but have most of it sleeved already.

Angel of Invention seems superfluous here, as it's mainly a pricier Aerial Responder. Also, the Glory-Bound Initiate doesn't give anything you control lifelink, because it only gains lifelink after combat begins.

I think that if you are trying to abuse Okretra's Monumnet you should go up to 3 copies since its a main combo piece for the deck. Having some other cards like Wall of Omens that have good ETB would be good as well, cards like Lone Missionary, Blade Splicer, and Angel of Invention. If you add blue you can play Reflector Mage, Spell Queller, and Trophy Mage to search up the Monument with. You should also know, in case you are not aware, that the Lens doubles the opponents white mana as well if you are playing an opponent that has plains. Most people that run Lens play Snow Covered basics like Snow-Covered Plains so that if they are playing an opponent that shares a color with their deck, they are not doubling their mana as well. A couple more removal spells would be nice for the deck too, like Path to Exile.

I would probably add Ipnu Rivulet for more discard options.
The good thing about the GPG decks, the major components in it, ie. God-Pharaoh's Gift , Angel of Invention, and Champion of Wits are here for quite some time. I'm sure there will be things in the new set that we can plug into this deck when the other sets rotate out. There are some nice, smaller flyers that can be put in place of the Mausoleum Wanderer that will come back as 4/4, but can be used as speed bumps against red.

It seems that after a while of testing you were correct after all that Angel of Invention is an auto include in a God-Pharaoh's Gift deck. Testing and more tournament play has also pointed out that Minister of Inquiries is not the all-star that I thought it was and was eventually cut for your suggestion of Strategic Planning.

These suggestion are awesome, thanks!!
First of all, Solemn Recruit feels awesome, just sitting there chomping +1/+1 at every block, if only i had something to give her trample..
i will totally add a couple Authority of the Consuls in the side against fast aggro decks, the additional board swipes are there for that!
Yeah i considered Oketra's Monument and it could be good against slow decks, could also ramp into an Angel of Invention at turn 4, but i think i would probably prefear an extra creature in my hand most of the times, i have to test a little.
Basically at the moment the strategy is just populate and get the most from the bonus +1/+1 to all creatures, what are the decks i ll have the most trouble against?

The problem I see with the Gift is, that it contradicts the other goals of the deck.
- The cost is pretty high. There are decks that really try to get the gift out as soon as possible with a graveyard that's full with creatures with good ETB effects.
- Diregraf Colossus doesn't trigger with the Gift, since your not casting anything. Also you are emptying out your own graveyard, so he will have less +1/+1 counters.
- Once the Gift "fake eternalizes" a creature it's in exile. So Gisa and Geralf can't get it back, and again the Colossus likes to have some zombies in the 'yard.
I think God-Pharaoh's Gift is a really cool build-around card, but you have to design the whole deck around it to fully take advantage of it. Mainly with self-milling (Champion of Wits & Strategic Planning), Refurbish and Gate to the Afterlife. Also some nice creatures like Angel of Invention to hit really hard.

My choice would be Regal Caracal and Sacred Cat over Angel of Invention and Adorned Pouncer, with a few Anointed Procession on the field, you can rapidly summon a very large number of cat token creatures.
