You also seem to have three different ideas competing for space here. You want the life gain + Resplendent Angel Combo to work for you, you want Knight Exemplar to come out with Day of Judgment, and you're playing both angels and knights, each of which is only half your creature base (Lyra Dawnbringer only boosts the angels, while History of Benalia only benefits your knights). These are strong on their own, but aren't acting cohesively.
Also, I know that Shalai, Voice of Plenty prevents your opponent from interacting with your fancy dudes, but you're not using the handy green-related ability.
I recommend making a choice: go all knights (with minor angelic support... Sigarda, Heron's Grace?), or go stronger into angels.
If angels: Call To Serve and a whole lot more removal spells (keep killing their low-level threats until you can get good angels out to defend yourself). Pull the knight-specific cards (but keep ones that still boost angels, like Benalish Marshal).

I know I am not making any use of Danitha's second ability, and I have since moved Novice Knight to the side board for matchups with Goblin Chainwhirler and instead run Dauntless Bodyguard. I know Sigiled Sword of Valeron can be great, I just really struggle to find something I would comfortably cut for that. Even something like Helm of the Host can get out of control in this deck, but again I really don't know what it would take the place of.

Bloodtallow Candle seems super slow because of the cost. Have you ever used it in a game?
You have 4 and 5 drop cards so you may want 25 or 26 land. Is this casual or standard? If casual, maybe consider Secluded Steppe to prevent mana screw and mana flood?

Oh, I thought you had Knight's Pledge's. Novice Knight becomes so good if you have both in 4 times. I do think that Druid of Horns is good if you "missed" early game, also he isn't as effective if you can't give him Hexproof. For that purpose, I recommend Shalai, Voice of Plenty ! It's really good to give Hexproof to all your creatures, and she's in the right colors too. Also, I'm about to try a Rogue list, with 3-4 Dub's and History of Benalia's. I'll tell you how it goes if you want to.

I've thought about Novice Knight it can still eat removal though but it is good as a blocker. I feel like Deeproot Champion does this better since he can be played on the same turn and he benefits from all enchantments.

Hi ! Love the deck. I've been playing a GW Aura and I think splashing Blue is really cool and smart. I just wanted to suggest adding Novice Knight 'cause having it early is reeally powerful. And yes, I would delete the Dub's for Oakenforms, I don't think First Strike is necessary if the creature is big. Gl hf !

Welcome to Tapped Out!
You could adjust your mana production, you have more than you need on and need more unless the deck gets more black spells. I'd run four of Authority of the Consuls, Edge of the Divinity and Novice Knight. Not sure about keeping Demonic Vigor since you can't reuse the Aura.
- You may not have a need for Arvad the Cursed considering he's has a cmc of 5, but if you get a few more legendaries it might be worth it.
- Haakon is interesting since you can graveyard cast knights with him on the battlefield. You can use him as a discard card.
- Bloodcrazed Paladin is good when a creature wipe happens and gives it a number of +1/+1 counters, even on the opponents turn.
- Student of Warfare is a great early card that can be leveled up with on your turn.
- Since you have a large number of permanents, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could be useful on having large amounts of mana to cast multiple spells or quickly leveling up the Student of Warfare.

BaneOfLordran I like the deck changes. I'm glad you liked cutting red. I am having enough consistency issues with my Arcades deck in bant colors. I am almost all blue/white in that deck besides splash of green for arcades.
My first thought to make the deck more competitive is you have many 1-2ofs and so few 4ofs. This will impact your consistency. Take the rest of these suggestions with a grain of salt. I find the best way to narrow my deck down to consistent 4ofs is to play the deck with many 1-3ofs and see what cards I like and what I don't.
Now for cards like Azor or Teferi, 1of is probably correct. I think you should cut Overflowing Insight for more Patient Rebuilding. Rebuilding enters the game faster and combos very well with Psychic Corrosion. 4 Diligent Excavator seems correct although it is not historic nor a defender. I would recommend a tad more removal to help you get to late game. Cast Out is great for maintaining instant speed or more Seal Away or perhaps Baffling End. Sai, Master Thopterist has been only ok in my deck. It may be better in yours with instant speed draw card ability. Wall of Vines might want to be replaced with Novice Knight. It is also a 1 mana defender that loses reach but gains two power which makes him a much scarier blocker. It depends on your local meta as far as how often you will be against flying creatures.
I think I'm going to buy the pieces and morph my Arcades deck into yours. I do not have a Teferi online but two Azor will do fine. I like how it will survive the Kaladesh/Aether Revolt rotation. That was a requirement when building my Arcades deck. Keep playtesting and tweaking!
