You're welcome... the upvote was just my approval of the changes you'd made; Paths + Pridemates are going to do you a world of good. I'm hoping Archangel of Thune finds her way in here eventually, too (note: her best friend is Spike Feeder, for its last ability).

Compare Dawnbringer Charioteers to Aerial Responder. It's very nearly the same creature; vigilance is usually far more advantageous than 1 extra toughness, but granted, toughness 4 does put Charioteer out of immediate Lightning Bolt danger (red player needs to wait for it to block before bolting it). Charioteer also has the ability to generate counters for itself, but with only 4 cards which may allow for this, it'll seldom happen.

The most meaningful difference between these two is 3 CMC v. 4 CMC.

Rally the Ancestors, Thatcher Revolt (maybe), Norin the Wary, and Champion of the Parish are pretty strong cards to run for tribal humans, especially since you're going for the aristocrat theme. Since you already have Xathrid Necromancer, Rally + a Sac outlet just makes them all zombos and puts them back in your yard.
Is Dawnbringer Charioteers ever good enough though? Otherwise Throne of the God-Pharaoh is always stellar in go-wide aggro decks.
I haven't attempted Humans but have been considering it with Tetsuo Umezawa but still unsure of it, but what you have going seems perfectly good. OH! Viridian Longbow is great to let your Queen assassinate her prey :p

This is a pretty cool deck! I would recommend Undergrowth Champion as he can get pretty big and still be a great blocker. Some other suggestions that I like to use in my +1/+1 counter decks: Dawnbringer Charioteers, Primeval Protector, and Solemn Recruit.

I'd start dropping/trading spells before cutting anymore creatures.

Could sideboard the 'defensive' spells (Path to Exile, and a mixture of Blossoming Defense/Gods Willing) until you need them... For more Heroic bodies... as a creature-beatdown deck, it still seems a tad light... Vanguard of Brimaz can help you go wide... Dawnbringer Charioteers is a bit high on the curve, but lifelink is nice...

Also, I found a few more spells to consider. Defiant Strike, Viridescent Wisps. These cantrips could help you cycle through your deck a little faster to get to more spells to cast... I know you're already fairly packed... but more options!... Options are never bad.

I would recommend getting rid of a lot of mana rampers. If you do heroic right, you don't need much mana at all, and 25 lands will absolutely get you mana flooded. I would get rid of Wingsteed Rider and get two more Akroan Skyguard. Also, get rid of Archangel of Thune, I'm fairly certain her ability does not trigger heroic. Nyx-Fleece Ram is much better replace with Lagonna-Band Trailblazer. Also add in Fabled Hero and Dawnbringer Charioteers, they are basically staples for WG modern. Throw in Unflinching Courage, Ethereal Armor, Canopy Cover, Hyena Umbra, and Gods Willing.

Sunbond and Dawnbringer Charioteers is a really fun combo to run in a deck like this. Sure he doesn't have hexproof, but I am sure you can find a way to give it to him which would just make him even more powerful!

I'm definitely digging the ideas man I really appreciate it! I would love to put Dawnbringer Charioteers in along with Sungrace Pegasus to combo both of them with Sunbond.

I like the concept of Nyx-Fleece Ram more for the passive ability and that is not usually a card people target. If I had a Fabled Hero I'd definitely throw it in.
But ill definitely put in Favored Hoplite and Hero of Iroas (I had those in the original tim ross' w/u heroic deck) I can also put in Ethereal Armor and Launch the Fleet in there as well.. Really wasn't trying to bring in tokens on here but ill definitely do what I can since it seems like a solid idea for this. In the end I guess I had too much going on.. Either life gain with the Sungrace Pegasus/Sunbond combo and counters with Phalanx Leader and Gleam of AuthorityIll definitely throw some of the cards I already have in there though. Thanks for the help! If you have any other ideas please let me know!

This actually has some pretty cool ideas for a first deck.

I think you might benefit from focusing more on the noncreature spell plan than on the lifegain plan. You can certainly still have both, but having a card like Soulmender just to trigger your two copies of Sunbond seems very committal when you aren't getting other synergy out of it. If you are more interested in the lifegain plan, just let me know and I can certainly provide other suggestions.

With that in mind, some of the creatures could be swapped out for others with heroic or similar abilities. Sungrace Pegasus and Lightwalker could be replaced by Akroan Skyguard or Wingsteed Rider. Graceblade Artisan could be Tethmos High Priest or Fabled Hero. Soulmender could be Myth Realized or Favored Hoplite. Student of Ojutai could be Dawnbringer Charioteers. Nyx-Fleece Ram could be Hero of Iroas, Vanguard of Brimaz, or Monastery Mentor.

If you want to stick with the enchantment theme, you might replace the non-enchantment spells with something like Eidolon of Countless Battles, Ethereal Armor , or Daybreak Coronet. Otherwise, heroic works well with spells that have multiple targets. Some examples are Ajani's Presence, Launch the Fleet, Phalanx Formation, Blessed Alliance, Dauntless Onslaught, Shoulder to Shoulder, Tandem Tactics, Redeem, and Cauldron Haze.

Well, there's some ideas to mull over at least. Good luck with your deck man. (Oh, and by the way, card linking is done using double brackets, not double parentheses.)
