Creature — Human Warrior
You may exert Devoted Crop-Mate as it attacks. When you do, return target creature card with converted mana cost 2 or less from your graveyard to the battlefield. (An exerted creature won't untap during your next untap step.)

Devoted Crop-Mate Discussion
4 days ago
You might want to consider playing Warrior tribal instead of Human tribal. Your key Glory-Bound Initiate, Devoted Crop-Mate and Metallic Mimic all still work as intended. The upside is that you can play Oketra's Monument and buff the tokens. The monument is probably one of the strongest cards for a deck like this, and giving the tokens +2/+2 or something would be insane. You also buff the tokens from Oketra the True.
Consider replacing Verdant Rebirth with Heroic Intervention and Blossoming Defense. Popular removal like Vraska's Contempt and Magma Spray does not get stopped by verdant rebirth. It also loses you a lot of tempo since you have to replay the cards. This deck can go very wide so protecting the entire board with one card feels amazing.
Lastly, you are running a lot of green sources. You have plenty of good dual lands and all of your creatures are white. Keep one forest in case of Settle the Wreckage (a card you should watch out for btw) or Field of Ruin. You don't have a single green creature so running Unclaimed Territory end up looking a little silly since it at best says : Add to your mana pool.
Cool deck overall, and I hope you have success with it. Please crush some of those grixis builds will ya? ;)

Disciple_of_Doran Well, you would be 100% right if it was a faster deck. I am considering it to be more of a mudrange anyway. And the sole reason why Champion of the Parish didnt make it to the final cut is, because i wanted Thalia's Lieutenant to buff creatures, when pulled by Devoted Crop-Mate. Plus i guess he would shine more if i remove Authority of the Consuls, which is just a Nahiri activator, and add some flicker cards like Eerie Interlude or Acrobatic Maneuver to dodge some aoe.

Sorry it's taken me so long to test this build.
I like it a lot. It's a very fresh take on Standard.
It has four main problems:
Any deck that has stuff to Exile all Graveyards is problematic for it.
You have partially addressed this by having Naturalize to take care of Crook of Condemnation.
I would suggest you also add Field of Ruin, to stop Opponents using Scavenger Grounds. That's my personal go to for Graveyard hate.
There's no real reason to put things in your Graveyard, other than to Embalm or Eternalize them. Here are some cards you could consider, so that you can interact with your Graveyard a bit more:
Bishop of Rebirth
You have no Draw, which means you will run out of cards to play by your mid to late game.
You can use Gatherer to find some Draw options.
You don't have much removal.
Ixalan's Binding, and Cast Out are staples for decks at the moment.
If you don't have ways to interact with your Opponent's plans, you run the risk that they will get their house in order, before you do.
I think the way forward for this deck is to refine, and cut back on, the Creatures you have.
Decide which ones are essential to win, and replace the rest.
You will have to be brutal, but it will result in a much stronger deck.
NB. I did test this using the playtest notes you gave.

You could really get a lot of value out of creatures with exert, you untap the every turn with Aurelia and on top of that they gain vigilance with the trumpet.Devoted Crop-Mate, Angel of Condemnation, Tah-Crop Elite, Glorybringer.
You will inevitably run out of cards in your hand, it's a Boros deck after all. Here are some ways to refill it: Ghirapur Orrery, Staff of Nin, Culling Dais, The Immortal Sun (a bit pricy but it's really good), Loreseeker's Stone, Oracle's Vault.
Some equipments Mask of Memory, Rogue's Gloves, Skullclamp, Infiltration Lens.

mana reduction is combo breaking with sram
As for Assault Suit, i felt the same way intially, but after playing a few matches watching as 5 people colluded to destroy the suit and sacrifice my creature it really hit home that the suit is by all means not that reliable, and if your creature has too many good equipments that benefit you people wont swing. At best its a hilarious card which might save you from a sacrifice but it still leaves you open and prone to being attacked with your own creature and it getting sacrificed, which is especially bad since you run heavy enchantments and those dont stay around.
Speaking of staying around, here is a bunch of recursion I don't see mentioned:

Glad to hear :) I will keep u posted. Tbh the aether hun was only in here because i originally intended It to be a tri-color human deck with focus on exert, 2 mana humans/ Devoted Crop-Mate and counters. I like your suggestion, also i am still considering either some red or black human for sideboard/maybeboard

The other change I would think about is this:
2 months ago
Seconding the thoughts that the deck right now is too all over the place. The cards I'd include as full playsets are:
- Glory-Bound Initiate
- Honored Crop-Captain
- Lightning Strike (you don't have them now, but you should)
- Gust Walker
- Ahn-Crop Crasher
- Cartouche of Solidarity (I like this better than the other one)
And then some number of:
- Oketra's Monument (really sweet in aggressive decks)
- Bloodlust Inciter
- Combat Celebrant
- Devoted Crop-Mate
- And not to forget your Gideons.
Hope this helps!
