Target creature you control gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn.
Scry 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)

I have yet to feel the lag yet in matchups but it is something I might consider thank you.
Glimpse is just amazing. I usually only have two board threats at a time to keep my hand stocked in case of removal I can't response: Gods Willing etc. With Battlefield Thaumaturge Glimpse becomes a free multi use tactic. Including tapping my field end of their turn for W and activating heroic for all of them.
This looks to be coming along great! The only cards that seem out of place right now are your Elvish Mystic and Raise the Alarm . You do not need mana ramp in this deck with the highest cost being 4CMD. If you want another 1 drop, see about Favored Hoplite , or more flying with Abzan Falconer .
Good luck and let us know how your games go!
Without more Gods Willing and/or Feat of Resistance you're just going to get your threats removed and essentially get 2 or 3 for 1'd over and over. With only 16 creatures, you'll find yourself with 1 or 2 on the field and struggling to not get overwhelmed by both aggro and midrange decks alike.
Soldier of the Pantheon is extremely under-rated in the current Standard that is so very gold bordered. I would also recommend more Battlewise Hoplite as his ability to help scry things is really helpful to keep the hurt comin' once mana is good. I don't think Akroan Crusader fits too well as you don't have any token support or ways to overwhelm via token. That said, I'd also drop Launch the Fleet as that's going to be most effective, again, with a token army and that's a different deck all together.
You're going to be paying a lot of life to continually be using Mana Confluence and Shivan Reef - why no Mystic Monastery ? I know it ETB tapped, but with literally no way to regain lost life it's something I would highly consider. That, or some way to stabilize your life loss. Without addressing this fact Jeskai wins and any other flavor of burn will thank you for making their job easier.
I know you're going for card draw, but there are some spells with Rebound and Flashback that you might want instead. I think you are needlessly hindering yourself by insisting on draw
anyway i'm bored. goodnight
For unimpeded swings / more resilient defenders Spirit Mantle might be worth a sideboard?
Nice Shell! I have a few suggestions.
I would run Brimaz, King of Oreskos MB as a 2of, he is a beast.
Spear of Heliod and Mardu Ascendancy can both be ran Sideboard, as well as maybe Gods Willing in place for walkers like Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or more burn. Lightning Strike ], Magma Jet or the all powerful Stoke the Flames
Take a look at my Mid-range Mardu build for some ideas. +1 to a fellow Mardu Horde Mate!
Boros Charm is really one of a kind.
Maybe Spirit Mantle would be nice to avoid all blockers? Susceptible to removal spells though.
I gotta say, I was a little hesitant about the build at first, but I think Hornet Nest is fresh approach to the abzan deck. The mid game might have some issues, if you have creatures wiped before you can really get the counters up. Might be worth considering Gods Willing ' Oppressive Rays , or Ajani's Presence for some added protection. Otherwise this looks like a fun deck to play!
