Then, Deploy the Gatewatch, and "Oops! All Gideons!"
Cast Gideons earlier in the game with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Leyline of the Meek (goes well with Oath of Gideon or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar tokens). Get even more devotion action with Evangel of Heliod.
Do you think you'd need Mirror Gallery?
Ah, I don't know, don't take anything I say seriously. Like the deck, though.

A few things: this isn't a Standard deck. Secondly, you're running far too little lands for a deck with a CMC of 3+. I'd add some more lands, especially Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for lots of mana. Speaking of devotion, Heliod, God of the Sun should help you here, along with Evangel of Heliod and Spear of Heliod.

I am new here and I have created one deck for our game group. But I am not sure which variant I should play? Shall I go for Boros or for Selesnya? Feel free to comment any other improvements to the deck that you think would be good.
I own all commons and uncommons of the Ravnica, Return to Ravnica and Theros block twice plus Magic X. Please note that this is a strictly budget deck. I am willing to buy rares as long as they are not more expensive than 1 USD. Also in our group we have the rule not to include more than 4 rares in your decks. This should ensure that the power level of the decks is similar.
Normally we are four or five players and we play free-for-all, two-headed giant and prisma. So the deck needs some defenses.
My deck list is strangely formatted. How do I do a better deck list?

Nice deck you have there.
I do have a couple suggestions:
Due to the fact that you are running Sublime Archangel, I would recommend utilizing creature tokens to create Burst Exalted triggers. Creatures like Evangel of Heliod will provide a HUGE number of tokens, translating directly to power and toughness for Rafiq when he attacks.
You could use a bit more artifact support as well:
It is important to keep your equipment safe, Voltron decks far to often fall victim to their own pride. Opponents can easily target your equipment and remove it without having to weaken Rafiq first. Giving your equipment Hexproof is a surefire way to keep your artifacts where you want them.
This Leonin combos really nicely with Puresteel Paladin, as you can bounce around your equipment to different creatures at instant speed.
Additionally, consider these lands:
A standard Commander staple due to its versatile nature and speed.
This is the only Check Land you are missing from your colour cycle. Replace Sejiri Refuge with it.
Tapping for your devotion (in this case, White) can significantly accelerate your board state. You have a lot of White Chroma active with all of your permanents, use that to your advantage.
Another Unblockable trigger, for statistic probability. Better safe than sorry.
A bonus Exalted trigger.
Hope that helps!

I'm not sure it's worth it to run Sunforger with so few Instants in the deck. Also, you might want to trade a Mountain or two for Swamp/Plains. Impact Tremors would be a nice addition with your strategy, and perhaps Mardu Ascendancy. You can definitely do without Evangel of Heliod and perhaps Relic Seeker. Considering your lack of Shocklands, Cyclelands, or Tangolands, you probably shouldn't run Duergar Hedge-Mage since he won't be all that reliable.
Hope this is helpful!

Interesting...so, it's white devotion deck without Enduring Ideal.
Ok, so a quick search on gatherer, and it looks like white devotion's options are impressively bad.

Or if you look at it this way, it doesnt affect the tokens produced by Evangel of Heliod.

Nice! Got a few ideas for...You can run Lightning Runner for some extra combat steps to trigger Alesha...it might be too slow without additional energy sources like Glint-Sleeve Siphoner or something but the upside seems pretty good. Tymna the Weaver & Moriok Replica for more cards. Dictate of Heliod is a great combat trick/anthem. Grey Merchant of Asphodel and Evangel of Heliod don't get devotion from your commander but they are still great to sneak in from the yard for 2 mana. Happy gathering!
