REDWHITEandBLUE on Trans girl power

Ok now i have some more time so ill try to make some suggestions for you. First i think that all the life gain is pointless. The deck is aggro so you should be lowering your opponents life total instead of raising yours. Elixir of immortality also does the opposite of what you want in this deck. You also have some pretty bad removal in this deck and there is much better budget options. Better card draw would also help. In an aggro deck you are going to run out of cards fast. Last i think there are some creatures in this deck that shouldn't be. but thats ok cause i think you are also running too many creatures so its an easy fix haha. Also i can tell that you wanted to go with an allies theme but alot of your allies have more than 2 power. You only have 12 allies and 4 of them have more than 2 power

Out:
Angel's Feather
Staff of the Flame Magus
Staff of the Sun Magus
Elixir of Immortality
Pacifism
Banishing Stroke
Celestial Flare
Aether Poisoner
Borderland Marauder
Death Cultist
Filigree Familiar
Harvestguard Alseids
Kambal, Consul of Allocation
Supply-Line Cranes
Tireless Missionaries
Underworld Coinsmith

In:
Mentor of the Meek
Faithless Looting
Fiend Hunter
Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
Reveillark
Karmic Guide
Sol Ring
Skullclamp
Swords to Plowshares
Burnished Hart
Boros Charm
Return to Dust
Terminate
Mortify
Tormenting Voice
Victimize
Reforge the Soul
Ashnod's Altar
Commander's Sphere
Darksteel Ingot
Cathars' Crusade
Mardu Ascendancy
Vampiric Rites
Behind the Scenes
Assemble the Legion
Vandalblast
Noosegraf Mob
Key to the City

lastly your land base seems alittle weird so ill suggest some stuff for that to.
1x Command Tower
1x Nomad Outpost
1x Evolving Wilds
1x Terramorphic Expanse
1x Rogue's Passage
1x Temple of Triumph
1x Temple of Silence
1x Temple of Malice
1x Temple of the False God
1x High Market
1x Hanweir Battlements
9x Mountain
9x Swamp
9x Plains

this would be a good budget land base for this deck. If you have any questions on cards then just ask. And obviously dont take all my suggestions it is your deck. Have fun!

Definite Cuts:- Collective Blessing- Oath of Ajani- Zendikar Resurgent- Ajani's Presence- Celestial Flare- Soul's Grace- Impeccable Timing

Potential Cuts:- Fireshrieker- Darksteel Ingot- Manalith- Evolution Charm

Any ramp that's in Potential Cuts is with the thinking that you can find more efficient ramp spells in Green. And I'm not certain how to value equipment yet, so I'm looking at the ones that seem weakest.

Potential Includes:- Eternal Witness- Sun Titan- Stoneforge Mystic- Birds of Paradise- Bloom Tender- Sakura-Tribe Elder- Farseek- Rampant Growth- Cultivate- Llanowar Elves- Elvish Mystic- Fyndhorn Elves- Path to Exile- Swords to Plowshares- Tooth and Nail- Chromatic Lantern- Selesnya Signet

36 lands is as low as I'd want to go here. So if I were going to cut 5 cards, they might include the following.

Cached Defenses/Dromoka's Gift - I don't like the cards that only Bolster, since you can't pick your target and they only affect one creature.

Sandsteppe Mastodon - Very powerful, but as a one time ability on a high costing card I'm not a fan.

Dromoka Captain - I feel like this will take too many attacks before it starts generating real value, and on its first attack is so easy to block and kill.

Not Forgotten - Pretty narrow at sorcery speed.

There are some other cards I'd consider making swaps for too, but I think these are less important than upping our lands first. But some choices:

Naga Vitalist/Druid of the Cowl/Honored Hierarch - These could be Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, or Cultivate. Things that put lands into play are usually better in Commander, since board wipes are so common. The Rishkar, Peema Renegade mentioned earlier would be the only creature I would really consider here, but thats just me.

Celestial Flare/Swift Reckoning - Looking at removal, Blessed Alliance has a little more flexibility. Beast Within is a little costly, but its one of the best things green can run since it hits everything. Sylvan Reclamation fixes land, or gets rid of two problem artifacts or enchantments, very useful! Ainok Survivalist is another possible option, again b/c you don't have many things to deal with artifacts or enchantments. Caustic Caterpillar is worth a look too.

If you already have the cards in your list, then try them out before swapping over this is all just general thoughts since I haven't played the deck. Adding those lands is really my #1 desire.

You should try to run more 4 offs on your deck, having lots of single copies of cards reduces the deck consistency and makes it feel very clunky. Also, since your goal is to build a deck with a strong late game you need to include the means to not die until you get there, so let's work on that first.

You're already running 3 Emancipation Angel, maybe adding 4 copies of Wall of Omens as a support cards is a good idea, Wall of Omens is a good blocker for the early game, draws you a card and is a great target for the Emancipation Angel effect. I recommend cutting some of the 6 mana cost cards for the Wall of Omens. Restoration Angel can also flick Wall of Omens and is a solid creature on its on, including 3 or 4 of them would be nice.

Archangel of Tithes has a solid body and helps slowing down an aggressive opponent, consider adding some to the deck.

Now, there are lots of cards on your deck that don't really help achieving your goal and can be cut without worries. I would start by cutting Tranquil Cove and Prairie Stream for 4 Emeria, The Sky Ruin. Sigarda's Aid only interacts with 4 cards on your deck, there's not enough support for it to be effective and every single artifact on the deck except Quicksilver Amulet can also be cut without problems. You can cut these cards for more early game bodies and support to your lifegain sub-theme with Lone Missionary/Inquisitor Exarch or removal with Path to Exile/Celestial Flare.

Also, Sun Titan is not an angel but does exactly what you're looking for.

Maybe Blessed Alliance instead of Celestial Flare for its versatility?

I think Soul Warden or Soul's Attendant will do more work than Soldier of the Pantheon. You might also consider Kazandu Blademaster - even without any other Allies, a 2/2 with first strike and vigilance is nothing to scoff at.

Celestial Flare as a sideboard against hexproof and indestructible. Oblivion Ring is really useful, too, even at 3cmc. Pithing Needle is nice against planeswalkers.
