2 cents: I find running 3 colors in an exalted deck is a bad idea but i'm still trying for it. try adding 3x Ajani, Caller of the Pride gives you the option to - if placed on third turn put a token on a creature. His most important ability is giving one of your creatures double strike and flying. add 3xElspeth, Knight-Errant give you the option on turn 4 one of your creatures +3 and flying. example hand turn 1 Akrasan Squire. Turn 2- Aven Squire and attack with Akrasan Squire. Turn 3 Ajani, Caller of the Pride- put token on Aven Squire and attack for 4. Turn 4 Elspeth, Knight-Errant - attack with an 8/8 Akrasan Squire double strike flyer. or/and even throw down a Mutagenic Growth in that attack.

EspioNova I don't think Angelic Page is a good creature, and it doesn't really have any good synergy with angels. If it's 2 mana flyers what you want, you could use Leonin Skyhunter which is a knight, or Aven Squire which gives +1/+1 without tapping, or Angelic Wall which is on theme with angels and will block many things in early game. But really, it would be much better to use those 2 manas in more powerful cards like Wall of Omens, Knight of the White Orchid or Honor of the Pure, or at least in adding more knights like Knight of the Holy Nimbus, Knight of Meadowgrain or Accorder Paladin.

PedroMarcello Those are all great suggestions and thanks for the +1. I am seriously considering the Mind Stone and other ramp options for this deck, since it would be good to get the Seraph out T3. So far, the early game plan of Sacred Cat+Exalted=lots of lifegain and/or Aven Squire +Exalted for big air damage have been working very good. I've had games when the Aven was swinging for 7+ and has won games on its own, no Angel needed, so getting the Seraph out early might not be that important(?) I guess it depends on which path you take with a deck like this...

I was sort of thinking it might have been too much.

I made a W/U exalted deck for this.

2 islands and 2 plains.

1 of Akrasan Squire, Aven Squire, Ethercaste Knight, Triton Shorestalker, Oppressive Rays, and Distortion Strike.

What do you think of it?

I believe it was some god-awful / exalted mess built out of cards from a deck builder's toolkit with things like Duskmantle Prowler, Duty-Bound Dead, Guardians of Akrasa and Aven Squire. It probably had more than 60 cards.

Selesnya Charm, Simic Charm mer, please no. Sphinx's Revelation bit wonderful late game ending spell to pull ahead of everyone else, I just don't think it belongs in this deck. Armadillo Cloak your spots for enchantments in this deck are hella tight, i don't think this one can make the cut. When looking at equipment i think Conqueror's Flail (We don't play a lot of blue, and i think people would just use removal off turn or inresponse to the cast.) Behemoth Sledge seems like the weakest out of all of the equipment, maybe drop it. Sovereigns of Lost Alara i tihnk if you had some bombs it would work wonders, but you dont. Stoic Angel seems a bit out of left field, i dont think it fits. Aven Squire, Ethercaste Knight, Giltspire Avenger, Knight of Glory, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Silent Arbiter. o boy, i just dont really like these cards all that much maybe look at dropping some of them for the last cards.

you could try some exalted and see how that works for you, Aven Squire or Cathedral of War are options. You could also try True Conviction and see how that works out for you. I would also recommend not cutting any lands.

For a voltron deck, you have many creatures, a fair amount are sub-optimal. Using creatures that have exalted, or exalted + some useless ability is detrimental for what you are probably aiming for. These are the biggest offenders: Akrasan Squire Aven Squire Dawnray Archer, Ethercaste Knight Frontline Sage, Guardians of Akrasa, Outrider of Jhess, Rhox Bodyguard Rhox Charger, 3 three "sigiled" creatures, and Waveskimmer Aven. That is 13 creatures. You will want more interaction with-- and defense against-- your opponent(s). Swords to Plowshares, Krosan Grip, Aura Shards, Dispel, Stifle, and Rootborn Defenses are all cards to consider. For buffing rafiq, Berserk is a near must, the sword of x&y cycle (however many you can get), and the Sovereigns of Lost Alara+Eldrazi Conscription are also near musts.
