Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:

You do also need some cards to add support which you have a few of but these three are pretty hefty; Iroas, God of Victory , Purphoros, God of the Forge and Hero of Bladehold .

You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .

Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:

I know your goal isn't to nessecarily win via commander damage but these two cards I find are helpful and threaten any opponent usually... Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice

Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs

Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.

Petition to change the deck name to "5-Chad" because it's the best nickname for Gideon I've ever heard.

Definitely use asterisk CMDR asterisk to denote which is your Oathbreaker and Signature spell

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip could be a sixth chad. Also Oath of Gideon seems kinda good and on theme.

I disagree with Kjartan. At worst, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is a Savannah Lions . Still not at best case scenario, its a blocker that can turn indestructible.

So while his flipping will probably be minimal, I think it's still decent.

Aight, I'm going to give you my imput on budget deckbuilding- you need to pick one thing and do it well. Since the most generalist options are off the table you need to identify a set of cards that work well together and don't break the bank.

For tempo, this means 1 drops that can put out the damage, and 2/3 drops that keep you alive so that damage gets there. Geist is intended to make the control matchup playable, by providing a hard to remove clock- a slot dragonlord is also competing for.

For value, this means resilient threats and spells that trade well. Resto/wall/reflector/flickerwisp does a lot- U/W blink decks which have fallen out of favour will have a lot of tools to tinker with. It doesn't match what you have described wanting to do.

Your spell selection seems good for Delver, so I'll focus in on that.

If you want to sit very low on the curve, I'd look at Steppe Lynx , one of the few one drops that can keep pace with delver, and which backed by Field of Ruin and some more fetches offers a lot.

Pteramander is a new option for delver, which between Mission Briefing and Thought Scour can come online very quickly. Those two would also offer Logic Knot a single slot.

Switching your less aggressive creatures to these will offer a lot.

Next up, the other important part of budget deckbuilding- Sideboard. You have another fifteen cards- a sideboard that works well is the difference between a bad deck and one that crushes your local meta. Notable options include Judge's Familiar / Cursecatcher & Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip in addition to the usual modern staples.

U/W is very versatile, but it likes to keep mana up for counterspells. This means end of turn effects, instant speed spells and creatures, and 1 drops are really, really good compared to everything else in the colours.

No problem! It's kind of nice to use the random knowledge in my head to help out here and there! Especially with a deck as sweet as this one.

I wasn't aware we had gotten a second Tibalt card, and this one is actually pretty good for your deck too!

My only other thought was the lack of card draw, the only card coming to mind being Mentor of the Meek , whol is a 3 drop 2/2. but enables a lot of draw. He isn't very fast though, and I onlt use him in my mono white soldiers where the early game uses things like Gideon's Lawkeeper to delay possible aggro a bit... So your mileage would certainly vary.

I like the idea of Judge's Familiar . Since you can pair it with Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, and even sacrifice it to stop any spells/Burn while still triggering the Gideon flip. Or just have it there to keep your opponent from trying to be sneaky. It has no bad synergy in the deck, is a one drop, and can possibly stop a dangerous spell! Though, I'm not sure if the 1/1 flying body surpasses the utility of Damping Sphere ...
