Very nice deck. Super cool. Very spicy. If you want you could sideboard Bassara Tower Archer if you are feeling extra dapper. Does cost double green though. Also, if you are looking for a nice cat, Fleecemane Lion is seleznya and can obtain hexproof. But is basically a 2 mana 3/3. Overall, very spicy deck if you want to see a card list like this, click here.

Yes. Fleecemane Lion is white because it has white in its casting cost and doesn't have a color indicator or ability to overwrite it's color. If some other effect (such as Darkest Hour) is changing it's color, it won't be effected by Brave the Elements.

Would Fleecemane Lion be protected from my desired color with Brave the Elements?

The first thing I would add would be Fleecemane Lion, probably over Skyhunter Skirmisher. I would definitely add more dual lands like Canopy Vista and Temple Garden, fetches like Windswept Heath. If budget is a concern you can get stuff like Selesnya Guildgate for really cheap.

Next I would add some sort of removal or answers to what your opponent is doing. For instance, if someone plays Ensnaring Bridge against you, you effectively cannot do anything about it, but if you have Disenchant in the sideboard, you can answer artifacts. Path of Exile is a staple for creature removal in white in modern is something else I would add.

You also can consider anti-board wipe cards like Heroic Intervention, or maybe some graveyard recursion in Return to the Ranks.

This deck could use some love on the curve too, right now you have no 2 or 4 drops in a deck that probably wants to play a creature every single turn seems like bad tempo for a mid-range tribal deck.

Ok, sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I see what you have done, and I do have some suggestions for you.

1) What is Fleecemane Lion doing for the deck? He doesn’t do anything related to tokens, so... I get that it is a great card and all, but it doesn’t feel in place with a deck like this.

2)Mother of Runes is great protection... for one creature. In this deck, Selfless Spirit is much better, because it gives all your creatures protection, rather than just a single 1/1 token. Also, the namesake and key card of this deck, Oketra, already has indestructible, so she’s good. I would recommend switching those out for more selfless spirits, because they protect your whole army, rather than one token

I would replace Aerial Responder for either more angels (more Gisela, Linvala or Shalai), or for another Thalia, Heretic Cathar, or for more green ramp like Somberwald Sage which allows you to play big angels on turn 3.

Also, Fleecemane Lion and Sylvan Advocate are nice but don't fit the theme and don't really have great synergy. As suggestions, Knight of the White Orchid can help you not falling behind on lands, and Silverblade Paladin is extremely good at making your angels very very dangerous. Or you could just mainboard some of your sideboard cards, I think most of them would be more helpful than the lion and the elf, especially Wall of Omens, Utopia Sprawl and Dromoka's Command.

I have a couple angel decks you might like to check :) Angels are coming, Mono-white Angels

Considering you've tagged this "Budget" and "Casual" I understand you don't want this to be too strong or expensive, but this would greatly benefit from a green splash. Mostly for Fleecemane Lion, but also some other lifegain synergies..
