ghostssssSee why i told you to play it, it's like one of the best card for your deck. I will also add that Ephemeral Shields would be better than Sheltering Light since you can cast for zero mana with convoke. I would also look at Not Forgotten for recycling your card and Dawn cause it's a wipe that can also bring back your graveyard to your hand.

Looks great but I have a couple of thoughts:
My initial impression is that Glorifier of Dusk is a better 5 drop than Vanquisher's Banner because it gets you cards right away and also applies pressure. I'll admit that the banner does seem better in a control matchup because it dodges essence scatter and removal.
If you are looking for more incremental gain then I thinkTwilight Prophet beats Vanquisher banner. This also gives you the flexibility of just sitting back and draining your opponent while making horses. The bad news is that she dies. I would recommend fooling around with these over Vanquisher banner though. Also, it doesn't even hit horses! Good Grief!
I think that Adanto Vanguard is so good you should go up to a 4 of. Forces your opponent to have Moment of Craving or a Magma Spray.
I think you can go two Dusk over fumigate. Fumigate is better against straight aggro decks because of the life gain but you already have a settle and the ability to just trade a bunch of creatures and Dawn them back seems great. It's also cheaper and has caked in card advantage.
I like Sanctum Seeker. Gives you great reach an survivability I think it's worth the tax on your mana.
I like Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle more than I like queen's commision. With your curve you are planning to attack on turn 3 anyway so Mavren is the same thing as queen's commision with additional value later on. The only bad news is that it can get essence scattered I guess but I think it's worth it.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan seems good enough to be a 2 or 3 of. Tough to see where to cut. Could be Radiant Destiny. Just seems so conditional. It's a 3 mana legions lieutenant that requires you already have a board presence. I just think it fails too often to be better than Yahenni.
Interested in your lack of Fatal Push in the main. I don't think it's wrong, just interesting. I suppose you are mostly white anyway and mostly the beatdown anyway. Still good to kill sneks and siphoners though so I'm glad it's in the side.
One more card to consider that I think is underutilized (though not sure if good enough) is Elenda, the Dusk Rose. it's good board wipe insurance and sort of combos with Yahenni. Not sure if it can fit though, the horse plan is probably better.

Some of what I've seen that would be a good 1 of closer outside of Zetalpa are Oketra the True, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, and Trapjaw Tyrant. I understand all of them (possibly not Oketra since you're running her monuments) are out of flavor. I know that people who play tribal don't want to necessarily want to "break theme", though you are looking at potential closers.
If you run Dusk know that there are times where it helps just casting it knowing that nothing will happen and it will just go right into the graveyard. It seems strange but people will have a hard time determining what to kill if they know the next turn you're just going to cast Dawn and get a replenishment of creatures back, especially if Oketra's Monument is out. If that's out, just keep your tokens back and that should help.
Fumigate is also a white counter that's almost required in standard right now for removal. Ixalan's Binding, Solemnity, and Gideon's Intervention are also options to look at, depending on your local meta. My lgs has a lot of energy decks so I actually have Solemnity in my main board. Hopefully that helps some with getting a better idea.

Okay, there are a couple different routes you can go then. You can go with a sort of re-animator theme with cards like Rally the Ancestors, March from the Tomb, Immortal Servitude, Return to the Ranks, and Dawn. If you then combo these cards with things like Cliffhaven Vampire, and Ondu Cleric it can wind up raking up a lot of damage. For example, if you cast a Rally the Ancestors on 3 and return to play 2 Ondu Clerics, 1 Cliffhaven Vampire, 1 Kalastria Healer, and 1 Hada Freeblade, you wind up doing 20 damage to your opponent, gain 55 life, and wind up with a 5/6 Hada Freeblade for the turn. This style of deck would be interested in pretty much just using all your allies as blockers and looting through your deck as fast as you can so you can cast your re-animator spells for massive value. There is also the option of introducing some sacrifice elements like Viscera Seer with Zulaport Cutthroat in conjunction with Rally the Ancestors to further pump your damage output, kill your allies to prevent the exile trigger from rally, and scry into more combo pieces.

Yeah, I think so. Angel of Condemnation gives a later game mana sink that is synergous with the deck. I took out Vizier of Deferment because I dont wanna end up holding it in my hand against control. Whatcha think?
Also, I see the comment on your thread about Dawn...may consider it.
