Here's what goes through my mind when considering Erebos's Titan in your list.. 1) It's first ability is extremely conditional, and therefore unreliable. (Not to mention opposing Dismembers are a thing).. 2) You have no way to trigger it's second ability at all..
So while Lashwrithe doesn't add Devotion, it does stick around and grow bigger & bigger.. A Godsend(lol) when you're in "top deck mode", and you draw a small creature; even better when it's a Deathtouch/Lifelink..
You actually make a good observation about Flaying Tendrils.. In that case you should keep the pair in your sideboard.. (Myself, I ran a mainboard Mutilate and a Damnation in the side).. However Protection doesn't apply to most Boardwipes in general, because they don't Block, Target, Damage, or Enchant.. (example: A Mirran Crusader can be taken out by a Drown in Sorrow)..
Faerie Macabre confused me at first too.. You see, this card can technically go into any deck, (I actually run this in Modern & Legacy colorless Eldrazi) because you never actually Cast it! It just chills in your hand until a Snapcaster Mage comes down & targets a spell, or they try to turn-1 reanimate a Griselbrand, or something else scary out of their Graveyard (even yours!).. You then say: "While that is on the Stack, I'll respond with discarding Faerie Macabre to exile X & Y.." Super sneaky & cutthroat as hell, but I will concede that it is strictly worse against Living End. But such is life, and why you want to build a varied sideboard..
Here's a link to my old list: Devoted to Obliteration.. (Note: I haven't updated the Primer in forever)..

You've got 2 Sunspear Shikari listed here.
One of my personal favorite, but under valued cards, is Dragon Throne of Tarkir. It can work well with voltron-y token decks like this.
Aside from all that, IMO, you've got a lot of land for a pretty low curve. On the otherhand, you don't have much in the way of mana rocks so 41 lands may be a good idea. :P
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx likes mono colored decks with lots of devotion.
I am kinda iffy about Sigil of the Empty Throne in this. If you can get out, you've only got 8 other cards that could trigger it and it doesn't make cats.
To bad Knight of the White Orchid isn't a 'cat.' :/

Thanks for advice! Let me comment on each of those:
- Elspeth, Sun's Champion is (at least in my opinion) too mana costly. I probably need something cheaper to use it earlier in the game
- Always Watching / Honor of the Pure - I used to have Honor in my deck, but now I prefer to throw a Knight that actually does something and now I've got even better boosts from Knight Exemplar. On the other hand Always Watching looks tempting, thanks for this suggestion :)
- Emeria, The Sky Ruin - one of this instead of Sejiri Steppe might sound like a plan. I think I've got enough Plains to utilize this, because you can count fetchlands and Flagstones of Trokair (aka. White Fetchland) as other Plains :D
- Godsend - I completely forgot about this card, looks promising. 3+3 cost looks awful but maybe after playtests I'll change my mind
About Light from Within - thing is, I used to use Elspeth, Knight-Errant but she gave me boost to only one creature, while Light gives a little less but to every knight I have. Also that little blocker sometimes wasn't enough so I buffed my royal army to use them as a shield, especially with spells like Brave the Elements
Anyway, thanks for help, I really appericiate that, hope you like this deck :)

Looks like a fun deck! I would consider adding the following:
Elspeth, Sun's Champion - A real killer!
Emeria, The Sky Ruin - 1 or 2 of those can be good, but maybe you would need more plains for that.
Godsend - Is truly a godsend, any creature with Godsend equipped becomes and end threat.

A little expensive, but would be great:
- Sigarda's Aid
- Golem-Skin Gauntlets (cheap to equip and buffs a bunch)
- Sword of the Animist and Explorer's Scope (both work as ramp)
- Angel of Invention (anthem + tokens)
- Obelisk of Urd
- Windbrisk Heights
- Forsake the Worldly (given the amount of enchantment/artifact trouble we can get into)
Kemba wants low equip costs:
- Stormrider Rig
Grafted WargearAll equip for free.
Dragon Throne of Tarkir buffs your army for you.
- Sigil of Valor buffs Kemba via her army.
- Haunted Cloak
- Empyrial Plate
- Chariot of Victory
- Dust Elemental (Saves things - it can return itself and 2 other creatures)
- Goldnight Commander or Valor in Akros
- Gideon, Martial Paragon (for the ultimate) ->
- Gideon's Resolve works as a tutor and Anthem

I broke out my GST deck and looked again at this.Am just curious:
Wall of Denial is a solid blocker in this format, but as I was thinking about it, it kinda forces your opponent not to attack pointlessly into it, and a lot of folks will keep blockers up just to dissuade you from attacking with GST himself. I feel like more evasion is needed, be it something like Invisibility for unblockability, Stratus Walk to fly over, or Ghostly Touch/Niblis of the Breath or any tap effect. Thus, New Prahv Guildmage can fill two of those effects.
Spear of Heliod gives anthem and plays a little defense.
Cards I'm not sure of: Chasm Skulker feels unsynergistic without extra draw effects and a token theme with Phantom General or something. -- Thalia's Lieutenant is okay with a few other humans, but would feel better with a more widespread theme to support it. I see the Strionic Resonator, but every deck I know carries removal for just such a creature. -- Is Call to Mind really good with only four other inst/sorcs in the deck? -- I haven't played with Burnished Hart, but sinking 6 mana into the effect feels questionable to me?

Mistveil Plains + Squadron Hawk is simply too good to miss out on, it gives infinite squad hawks, thus infinite blockers, or just insurance against discard that does not target, like from lilana (+1).
You should really decide what do you want to do with the deck on equipment front, as Trophy Mage is very powerful (and should be present in 4 copies), but there is no point in running Batterskull alongside her a single copy.
I would check out other good 3cmc artifacts, like Sword of the Animist, Godsend, Grafted Wargear(?), Quietus Spike, Whispersilk Cloak... etc.
In my humble opinion you should not play planeswalkers, just for the sake of having planeswalkers, but each to his own i guess.
On creature front i would probably consider Spell Queller, as that is one of if not the best card in these colors, while in theory it could also fit in this deck, as it already includes a lot of counterspell, the more the merrier!

Since you have Extraplanar Lens, I would recommend using Snow-Covered Plains instead of regular ones. Depending on your meta, it would help make sure you don't give other people extra mana. I'd also consider adding in Godsend, Angel of the Dire Hour, True Conviction, Angelic Arbiter, Chancellor of the Annex, and Celestial Mantle.
