Bruna, the Fading Light Discussion

Alright some cuts.
Primeval Protector 10/10 vanillas that can get chumped by Soldier tokens feels bad man.
Vastwood Animist Not a fan of turning lands into creatures. Plus it's only ever going to be like a 4/4 because by the time 4+ allies hit the battlefield, you're either going to have the game in hand or someone is going to blow up the board.
Undergrowth Champion Not a lot of synergy here.
Avenger of Zendikar Craterhoof Behemoth Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Gahiji, Honored One Malignus I put all these here in the same pile cause they fit into what I call "Good Stuff" that detracts from what I think the overall strategy of the deck should be. For me Allies is a deck that accrues value every turn by dropping one creature after another in a synergistic chain. These guys are at the top of the chain but either for me feel "Win More" which I'm not a fan of, or feel like they do something different than what the deck really wants to do. Just my two cents.
Mirror Entity This guy is a closer.

Another way to meld quickly is by self-milling and tutoring Bruna, the Fading Light from your graveyard. Gisela, the Broken Blade returns from her cast trigger, as she will likely already be in the graveyard. In the mean-time:
It's up to you, but definitely in maybe . Grapple with the Past and Pulse of Murasa for the tutor, and maybe even Splendid Reclamation/Nissa's Renewal for much needed ramp. Emeria Shepherd is similarly great.
If you haven't tested this angle I recommend it. Your current iteration of this deck is a more general Selesnya-midrange only with Brisela, Voice of Nightmares on the roof, but no ramp.
And I understand the synergy between Always Watching and Stitcher's Graft, but it's vulnerable to any Naturalize effect. At the least basically 2-for-1'ing you consistently. Probably why it isn't seen in a lot of Standard decks these days.
Just food for thought - I'm brewing in these colours and experimented a lot with similar cards :)

Maybe remove two Plains and one Razorverge Thicket to make room for two Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse and one Forest. The ability to do extra late-game land drops and activate Admonition Angel an extra time might be really handy.
Since it will take a while to get your Angels on the battlefield, it may be a good idea to have Angels who retrieve any blockers that died. Some examples are Angel of Glory's Rise, Bruna, the Fading Light, Emeria Shepherd (works well with the extra landfall too), Karmic Guide, Reya Dawnbringer, and Twilight Shepherd.

Mario21 I used to run Phyrexian Reclamation and Athreos, God of Passage. In fact the deck originally started with him as the Commander. By my count that's 6 new cards you're suggesting I add. That is going to be hard to do. I don't know what to take out. On a side note Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade were removed for Angel of Sanctions and Aven Mindcensor. Faith's Reward was removed for Cruel Reality. Radiant Purge was removed for Forsake the Worldly. Without going into greater detail all of these changes were made just to see how they might perform. What would you suggest I take out for the other 6 cards?

I like that you're trying to convert it.
When you jump from the human tribal shell into Naya "Good Stuff" essentially, you will need to lose the Metallic Mimic as you are no longer all in on the tribal. Once you take that away then Expedition Envoy suddenly loses a lot of it's value (especially when you're SO heavy on the 1-drop slot.)
I see no Thalia, Heretic Cathar so now we add 2 copies for all the utility it brings.
Here is where it gets tricky. With 6 slots left I would personally assign them thus: 3 Thalia's Lancers as this deck is laden with Legendary creatures. 2 Gisela, the Broken Blade as she is naturally stronger than her other half, and 1 Bruna, the Fading Light. Bruna is a massive 7-drop and as such we would rather tutor her up with the lancers than draw her early.

My superfriends build plays like, 8 creatures. 4 Permeating Mass, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Bruna, the Fading Light, and a couple Thalia's Lancers. Still prob not most efficient, but again I really like scry 2 and make two 5/5s
