Kamahl, Fist of Krosa might be to your liking. These too: Somberwald Sage , Faeburrow Elder , Elvish Rejuvenator , Ulvenwald Hydra , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Cauldron of Souls , Wall of Omens , Fierce Empath , Woodland Bellower , Amulet of Vigor , Lotus Cobra , Stone-Seeder Hierophant , Aviary Mechanic , Oketra's Monument , Pearl Medallion

Barbarian_Sun_Pope: I think the issue with all of the cards you suggested is that they are either too situational or lacking a bit in power level. Charming Prince outshines Deputy of Acquittals , Aviary Mechanic & Faerie Impostor . Return to the Ranks doesn't get enough of my creatures back and Brought Back & Eerie Interlude can be hard to setup properly. Selfless Spirit does a better job at protecting my board against the most strategies overall. I still appreciate the time you took to give feedback though!

I think Chosen by Heliod and Hobble could be added. Both add 1 devotion and draw a card, can be grabbed with Pilgrim and be bounced by Aviary Mechanic and Kor Skyfisher . Up to you though, if you don't think they Jyve with the gameplan then I would hold off.

I think you'll definitely want Heliod's Pilgrim in there, as well as Aviary Mechanic , Kor Skyfisher , and Whitemane Lion to get extra value out of all of your ETB creatures or extra commander activations. Some more Aura cantrips probably wouldn't be a bad idea either.

Hmm ... Brought Back and Return to the Ranks are the first cards that come to mind with this ETB theme. They give some insurance for your creatures. Eerie Interlude is a pretty nice repeat effect once you've established a board. Deputy of Acquittals (flash) and Aviary Mechanic / Faerie Impostor (easier to cast) can also provide a bit more bounce for very little mana. Hope this helps.

Switched up the sideboard a bit, now that the first round of bannings is out and I know what my local meta is like a bit more.
I also dropped the playset Aviary Mechanic . They don't do anything without the monument out. In fact, without it, they are embarrassingly bad. Instead, until I figure out what I want for 2-drops, we're back on Hanweir Militia Captain Flip. Not astounding, but he demands an answer and rewards us for what we were already doing. Unlike mechanic, which actively messes with it. Charming Prince , when we don't have monument out, is a better Mechanic for the most part.
Calling out for help here actually: we need more two drops. What should we run? Lavinia, Azorius Renegade is pretty good against the devotion decks, though she stresses our manabase quite a bit.

Hmmm... Well, I suppose that's another reason to keep Emancipation Angel; unless there's something better than her for the same purpose... Kor Skyfisher? Aviary Mechanic? Both look like WAY better alts anyway...
