I didn't even think making the Famished Paladin a lifelinking pinger. That was very big brain!

Thanks. That is the only one of the two card combos that I found without the help of the internet. When I first built the deck, I was only thinking of two card combos like that, but there are so many 3 card combos I didn't see at first. For example, Famished Paladin was put in the deck to combo with Resplendent Mentor, but if you enchant it with Presence of Gond and you have a Soul Warden on the field, you can get infinite life and 1/1 Elf Warriors at the same time!

I have decided to put my Korvold deck I wanted to make recently to the side which "due to big debt from previous card purchases" made it look like it might be too expensive for what I wanted. So, I was looking around for a new commander of some kind and despite the fact of how much I absolutely hated the original Theros block and how apathetic towards this one I was I saw the new heliod and really gave it a look over for the first time and realized she would be a really fun and NON super ultra instinct level commander. I tried a mono green as my very first commander which was the locust of mana so I think having a new mono color commander could be fun for my deck rotation. So, help me brainstorm for ideas for what to put in this deck. I already know all about EDHREC and I looked it over and I think we could do a bit better than the list of stuff that is given there.
I already have the showcase version of heliod - Not foil unfortunately- and I was thinking of adding this combo in the deck.
Famished Paladin + Resplendent Mentor I also was thinking maybe doing a slight "aura" theme with the deck-but I don't think there is enough good mono white auras to make use of creatures like Hero of Iroas I could go with tokens as a secondary theme which cards I was thinking of using like Honor of the Pure Benalish Marshal and Storm Herd could be good. But then I might run into the problem of overdoing it with Tokens which I would have to decide WHICH kind of white tokens I would want to aim for that would still let me get in the "lifelink" theme that the deck would run on. I also have things like Sun Titan Archetype of Courage Dawn Charm Loyal Unicorn Idyllic Tutor and Three Dreams in addition to some of the staples from edhrecs' list. I know this can potentially be a really great mid power white aggro life gain-Possibly aura and tokens deck. But I don't normally play white-ever. I have probably have ever had possibly 2 mono white decks "both standard at the time" during the entire time I have ever played magic the gathering. It will also be a challenge since statistics show that having any white in your deck what so ever, even a single card gives you a -1% chance at winning games LOL. Not lying, so to beat someone with a mono white deck would be highly satisfying, especially if they are playing a higher power commander with the higher powered colors like blue green and black or heck, maybe even all three.
Anyone else can brain storm up some ideas? Possibly combos that are infinite or just a singular combo that is fun or strong or possibly what kinds of auras or creature base I should shoot for? Should I go soldier or humans for my lifelink or simply just fill out my deck with creatures with lifelink with no thought to what else they are or do?

Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies = Infinite Green mana. Devoted taps for G then Vizier takes the -1 minus 1 = 0 -1's. redo for infinite mana. Famished Paladin + Resplendent Mentor = infinite life. Enchant Paladin with Mentor. You tap Paladin for life / you gain life so he untaps - So on and so forth.

I feel like the lifegain could be a little more consistant and a little more aggressive. Creatures like It That Rides as One and Glory-Bound Initiate , Anointer Priest , Bishop of Wings , Charming Prince etc. There has been a decent amount of support for lifegain printed.
Dawn of Hope offers card-draw.
There are a bunch of lifelinky 1 drops if you want to lean into that- Haazda Marshal and a bunch of 1 drop lifelinkers will work when backed by the quality p/t increases in the format.
If you go multicolour, you get access to God-Pharaoh's Faithful and drain effects in black. A Gate to the Afterlife deck would be possible, as would rally. Soulfire Grand Master / Seeker of the Way offers a red/white spellsling style.

LadyZ, thanks for comments.
Maybeboard for this deck is some randome stuff near vampire theme from my card pool. So, I indicated that it is possible to advise cards not only from there. And I don't consider Duskmantle Prowler or Famished Paladin too.
Think I don't need Anguished Unmaking right now. In our playgroup I don't see deck with graveyard interaction. So don't need change simple "destroy" on "exile".

I can see a few cuts as well. I don't like Sangromancer for this deck, life gain isn't necessarily something you want to worry about. More an incidental benefit. I'd replace Mortify with Anguished Unmaking .
From your maybeboard, I looove Bloodcrazed Paladin . Excellent way to rebuild from a boardwipe. There's some cards there that I wouldn't consider personally. Duskmantle Prowler for example. 4 mana for a 2/2 haste? you probably won't be using Exalted ever. Depending on how you build your deck, you won't always be able to untap Famished Paladin
