Gideon, Martial Paragon is a white card I've been playtesting with Elves, Marwyn and Shalai. His +2 can uptap all your creatures while also pumping them. This can result in fantastic turns of using Marwyn's ramp two times a turn or one time and then attack with her for a turn.
Tapping all mana Elves including Marwyn, Rishkar, Servant and any Elf with a counter on it to make mana to pump the team with Shalai. Then untapping all these creatures pumping them to attack. Gideon is also board wipe insurance since his 0 ability he can become a creature to attack which is a huge benefit for Elves.

The way you described this deck is amazing. It looks pretty good, but consider adding Avacyn, Angel of Hope for obvious reasons, True Conviction for also obvious reasons, and consider both Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Gideon, Martial Paragon. Ally is good for creatures, and martial will just end games with his ult. +1 upvote.

Updates: So, Golden Guardian Flip is fun with enrage...as I thought it would be. Golden Guardian + Ripjaw Raptor --isn't it funny how the raptor has a 5 butt? That's just neat or as Forrest would say, "They go together like peas and carrots."
Zacama, Primal Calamity WANTS....no NEEDS to lead this deck, but in my humblest opinion Gishath, Sun's Avatar is superior in every way. Most notably, Gishath wants you to have a dino deck, but Zacama could go into any naya build and not even remotely need dinos.
Mana base plays fine, even without costly duals and extra special land fixing.
Spells are fine, as long as you enjoy the creature style of decks. This is a creature deck. Getting an Elemental Bond is great, because you constantly refuel until someone realizes your are crushing them with draws and removes said enchantment. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is equally efficient.
Both Gideon, Martial Paragon and Huatli, Radiant Champion seem right at home here. I thought of other walkers, but no one else seemed to match the subtheme. And I promise if you hit Gideon's ultimate, you should win hands down. But his +2 ability really made me wanna play exert; I just couldn't comfortably fit it into the deck...
The rest is all fun. Queue Jurassic Park music!

I know he is underwhelming, but Gideon, Martial Paragon seems good here as a one-of.
I would probably do a 3-3 split on Baffling End and Cast Out.
This looks fun! Kudos!!

I don't really like Vizier of Deferment here, especially since you took out the Verdant Rebirth which kinda synergizes with it. Not necessarily replacements for Vizier of Deferment, but I think some of these cards might be good here: Gideon of the Trials, Gideon, Martial Paragon, Everdawn Champion, and Emissary of Sunrise.

I appreciate you checking out my deck, it's still evolving (I actually just made a few updates).
I only play 1 of the 4+ drop Vamps generally to find with Forerunner when I need them. This deck functions the best when I can consistently play 1 and 2 drops then supplement with Radiant Destiny + Lieutenant. The Foreunners help find the higher drop vamps to clear a stalled board or draw cards when my hand empties. I don't typically have more than 3-4 creatures out (occasionally 4-6), so playing the Champion and losing 4-5 life isn't a big deal. Actually, that card has probably won me those most games, especially against other aggro decks.
The Duskborne is an additional 1 drop to help keep the curve low and rolls nicely into Vanguard and then Mavren. Many of my games have been won in the air because the ground is somewhat stalled. Having a Radiant Destiny + Lieutenant out turns the Duskborne into a 3/3 and because it can usually attack will proc Mavren to make more tokens. I was originally running 3 Conquistadors (which I still think are good), but I had occasional mana issues.
The 2 Vraska's are mainly there because nearly every matchup has a big creature that is tough to deal with (Scarab God, Hazaret, Rhonas, Phoenix etc). Could probably get away with side boarding it, or playing Ixalan's Binding.
This deck doesn't flood the board with tokens like some vamp decks do, so Legion's is not always flipped. When it is flipped, it's almost preferable to use it for white mana to play a better vamp, like the Vanguard.
The only losses I have had are due to not drawing enough mana (I just swapped in another Unclaimed) and to not drawing removal. My plan is to test a few Plainswalkers, to see if any fit the deck. Going to start with Gideon, Martial Paragon, then likely Vraska, Scheming Gorgon

Hey! Looks good as a strating point! Solemnity is a little slow to be a real answer to the energy decks in the format and I'd almost recommend trying to just stay more aggressive than they are! Hashep Oasis is defiently still very powerful in combination with Adorned Pouncer and I would defiently suggest keeping some! Gideon, Martial Paragon is okay but honestly, I'd say you're better off with more creatures, Resilient Khenra is very strong and would recommend up-in the amount you have of him. Lastly Heroic Intervention whilst powerful vs cards like Fumigate + Sweltering Suns is a little worse in the main board in most situations vs Blossoming Defense (which allows you to be more aggressive aswell) Id recommend trying to move the interventions to the side and fitting Defenses in instead.All in all its a fun/good list that won't embarrass you at all! Very powerful cards in here that'll win you a lot of games!
If you're looking for other standard decks to try I have a few up that are p fun and powerful (I at least hope so haha)
