DankStompy ArchonBlue Cast Down is simply the worse option. Dank I don't know what meta you are playing in and it might be the right choice for you but Cast Down is in no way strictly better than Fatal Push. Push is and continues to be a format defining card and if we take a closer look at the top played creatures in modern (As per MTGGoldfish):
Of the above only Street Wraith cannot be pushed and even then no one is hard casting a Street Wraith in modern. In fact the first instance of non-pushable creatures comes at number 22 in Gurmag Angler and number 23 in Hollow One and then the only other card in the top 50 in this group is Primeval Titan at number 42.
Revolt is incredibly easy to trigger with an ideal manabase of fetches and shocks, I've never had an issue triggering revolt in modern. The debate here largely comes down to efficiency, Push answers turn one Goblin Guide and a quick affinity start immediately, Cast Down simply can't, maybe there is room as a one-of but not in favor of Push, but more so in a role similar to Terminate or Murderous Cut. The speed of modern though demands push, and will continue to for a very long time, one mana removal is just more efficient, and anything that can't be pushed can be Path to Exile.
Also Esper Charm is sneakily the best card in this deck, its removal, discard, and card draw wrapped into one, it does everything control wants with added flexibility. With the fetch-shock manabase its relatively easy to set up as well without being difficult to cast.

Tamiyo is by far my favourite planeswalker, maybe even my favourite card in all of Magic. I've fiddled with bant a lot but I never came up with anything viable in modern that can run Tamiyo and isn't just your generic midrange shell. Since bant already has a ton of amazing curve-outs into Tamiyo (Noble Hierarch into Reflector Mage or Loxodon Smiter; alternatively Serum Visions into Tarmogoyf into Thalia, Heretic Cathar are thinkable) I struggle a bit with making a creature up that fits this shell. Between Tarmogoyf, Reflector Mage, Loxodon Smiter, Spell Queller and so many others, Bant has an insane creature toolbox, Bant doesn't fail because of creatures, but because of the extremely weak interaction - Path to Exile alone is rather weak, and Blue's Draw-Go Approach clashes heavily with Green's Tapout philosophy. As such, I don't think I can create a creature that doesn't aleady exist in some way or form, and I'm intentionally going over the top here.
Johnny Baggins, Daydreamer
Legendary Creature - Kithkin (or Hobbit)
When Johnny Baggins, the Shire's Foulmouth enters the battlefield, draw a card.
, : Target creature gains indestructible and gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
, : Target creature gains hexproof and flying until end of turn.
, : Target creature gets +3/+3 until end of turn. You may put a land card from your hand onto the battlefield tapped.
Dream, and you may just start believing. Believe, and your work may seem effortless. Work, and your dream may become real.
Create an absurdly agrissive creature of any CMC you'd like that fits into any aggro shell. It's super amazing if it works, but it has a brutal downside if it doesn't.

This deck doesn't stand in the current modern metagame, and I am concerned with the amount of people saying otherwise.
The deck runs a 9 mana do nothing (Reya Dawnbringer) and Archangel of Thune with nearly no lifegain. Restoration Angel is being run without Blade Splicer nor Siege Rhino, and it can't get it's legs off the ground before turn 4. Be that point control will have wiped your field and will present win with countermagic against your lategame, aggro would have won, and combo will have won that turn or the turn prior. Midrange decks will have shredded your hand with Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, and be presenting efficient threats while you wait to rebuild.
If you want this deck to be better, I suggest building a deck that isn't a normal midrange, control, aggro, or combo build. Death and Taxes is the style of deck you want.
The deck runs small and efficient beaters that it cheats out with Aether Vial to shut down the opponent.
Against control? nice try Supreme Verdict, Gaddock Teeg has you beat, fast paced weenies will outpace or at least generally nor get shut off by Thoughtseize. Aggro has to get past Kitchen Finks and Blade Splicer tokens. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben can help in that deck as well.
I'll go build of a list for GW death and taxes. This deck isn't far from it, Noble Hierarch instead of Avacyn's Pilgrim, and other small changes, 4x Flickerwisp and probably only 1-2xRestoration Angel, etc.

I'm sorry but it isn't competitive deck for tournaments, in T1 and T2 you have way too low interaction that isn't supported by the rest of the deck. Because for example, when you T1/T2 will be one bolt to creature and then you play Savage Knuckleblade to keep him alive you can't play anything turn 4 or you play it as basic 4/4 for 3. I think that you could make those cards into casual commander deck that will be fun and all that stuff or kitchen modern(casual modern or whatever you want to call it) rather than competitive environment. For T1: Birds of Paradise or another 1 mana Noble Hierarch ramp but idk your budget. BTW 7 drop is waaaay to high.

Experiment One would be good as a one drop, considering all the big guys you have.

Sorry it's taken so long for me to respond to your query about my Noble Hierarchs. I didn't see anything in your binder I was really looking for. Thanks much though, and I look forward to trading with you sometime in the future!
