I highly recommend the Swords to Plowshares and Aurelia, the Warleader. I'm running both in my Ghired. Swords is still one of the best removal spells in the game as the cheap cost to exile a creature in a format where things don't stay dead long enough to even be noticed can't be overstated. Aurelia is key to triggering Ghired more often and growing the token horde quickly.

I have decided to put my Korvold deck I wanted to make recently to the side which "due to big debt from previous card purchases" made it look like it might be too expensive for what I wanted. So, I was looking around for a new commander of some kind and despite the fact of how much I absolutely hated the original Theros block and how apathetic towards this one I was I saw the new heliod and really gave it a look over for the first time and realized she would be a really fun and NON super ultra instinct level commander. I tried a mono green as my very first commander which was the locust of mana so I think having a new mono color commander could be fun for my deck rotation. So, help me brainstorm for ideas for what to put in this deck. I already know all about EDHREC and I looked it over and I think we could do a bit better than the list of stuff that is given there.
I already have the showcase version of heliod - Not foil unfortunately- and I was thinking of adding this combo in the deck.
Famished Paladin + Resplendent Mentor I also was thinking maybe doing a slight "aura" theme with the deck-but I don't think there is enough good mono white auras to make use of creatures like Hero of Iroas I could go with tokens as a secondary theme which cards I was thinking of using like Honor of the Pure Benalish Marshal and Storm Herd could be good. But then I might run into the problem of overdoing it with Tokens which I would have to decide WHICH kind of white tokens I would want to aim for that would still let me get in the "lifelink" theme that the deck would run on. I also have things like Sun Titan Archetype of Courage Dawn Charm Loyal Unicorn Idyllic Tutor and Three Dreams in addition to some of the staples from edhrecs' list. I know this can potentially be a really great mid power white aggro life gain-Possibly aura and tokens deck. But I don't normally play white-ever. I have probably have ever had possibly 2 mono white decks "both standard at the time" during the entire time I have ever played magic the gathering. It will also be a challenge since statistics show that having any white in your deck what so ever, even a single card gives you a -1% chance at winning games LOL. Not lying, so to beat someone with a mono white deck would be highly satisfying, especially if they are playing a higher power commander with the higher powered colors like blue green and black or heck, maybe even all three.
Anyone else can brain storm up some ideas? Possibly combos that are infinite or just a singular combo that is fun or strong or possibly what kinds of auras or creature base I should shoot for? Should I go soldier or humans for my lifelink or simply just fill out my deck with creatures with lifelink with no thought to what else they are or do?

I guess you have already seen the new boros commander Haktos the Unscarred ? I'm currently thinking about building him, and I'd love to hear your opinion about him.
My thoughts for now are the following:
Adding Tajic, Legion's Edge , The Wanderer and Loyal Unicorn and some damage based sweepers such as Hour of Devastation seems a possible route to go because this way, not only Achilles himself, but your other creatures are as well protected grom your own boardwipes. Possible ways to pump him are Hero's Blade and Obsidian Battle-Axe because their etb-triggers don't target. To have them when he enters the battlefield, Steelshaper's Gift and Open the Armory seem useful. Another thing I am considering are "global" protection spells as they don't target and thus ignore his protection.
I'm not sure if the deck should include more equipment or enchantment, but if, then these natirally would have to spread evenly among cmc 2, 3 and 4.
I'll try to upload a first draft of a list later. If you'd like to see it, I'd be happy to link you there.
Until then: Best regards

I kept Loyal Unicorn in my build, and I really like how it performs. Giving Tuvasa vigilance when she is huge really pressures the table.

I like it. I don't know the age of your son, but it seems rather user-friendly. That is one of the nice features of these colors. I would suggest more card advantage. Perhaps something like a Skullclamp , Shamanic Revelation of maybe even a Dawn of Hope .
For green, it seems to be lacking in ramp. There is no shortage of ramp in these colors, but consider Cryptolith Rite .
Beastmaster Ascension is pretty much a must for any token deck.
Oketra is nice and works here. The other Oketra would be nice too God-Eternal Oketra .

I feel Sigil of the Empty Throne could be pretty decent in this deck. Oath of Lieges may also be a fun addition, if you ever wish to put a group hug element into this deck. I feel that more hoofed creatures should be added, so maybe consider Loyal Unicorn . Ethereal Armor could be of use to you. Hyena Umbra , Eland Umbra and Umbra Mystic are fun additions if you ever decide to go towards a Voltron strategy.
I hope these have helped!

This deck is fabulous. I run a banding deck in pauper EDH (any uncommon can be your commander, but all of the 99 must be common) and its commander Loyal Unicorn might be handy here!
