Ehy BenMonte, I know you haven't been editing this deck for a while, but what about the new Novice Knight instead of Lagonna-Band Trailblazer? It can become pretty big by turn 2

DangoDaikazoku Hey man, thanks for your comment! First of all, love the name! Immediately made me sing the song in my head haha. I appreciate your input on my deck, so let me just explain why I picked some things.

I put in Pillar of Origins for two reasons. One, I could declare either Wall or Dragon, allowing me to get a free mana with either, also freeing up mana on my board for potential combos, extra creatures, etc. I also picked it because it's an artifact, and would go well with Tezzeret, Artifice Master Zero ability, allowing me to draw two cards, if I have three or more artifacts on the field. I have Tezzeret's Gatebreaker in for three reasons, one is that it allows me to basically scry 5 cards, and seeing as how most of the deck is Blue or Artifacts, I'm almost guaranteed to find something I could use from it. Reason two being it's another artifact for Tezzeret's draw ability, and reason three, I could always use it as a backup in case both of my Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive or Suspicious Bookcase's are in the graveyard, exiled, bottom of my deck, etc. I only kept Novice Knight in there for a decent one drop creature, so I could totally substitute in two more Wall of Vines instead. Putting in some three drops is probably a good idea as well, do you have any recommendations? I'm looking on gatherer now, but any advice would be appreciated. I'll also totally add some counter spells to my sideboard. Thanks again for your comment!

I'm not all too familiar with the standard meta, but I'd suggest more three drops to curve out. If Unmoored Ego is a problem for you, I would suggest sideboarding in counterspells to prevent it from resolving since Ego appears to be more of a game two type of card. I also think you're running a lot of two drop cards that you could shave off a bit. Pillar of Origins doesn't seem the best in my opinion, because most of your Walls cost generic mana, or are mono-colored. I guess you could name Dragon with it, but it seems like a waste to spend that on one creature in your deck. You might want to add some three drop cards to allow you to curve out better as well, since you aren't running any right now. Tezzeret's Gatebreaker seems a little high on the curve for what it is. I would much rather run cantrips like Opt instead because it feels more consistent and mana efficient than a four CMC five card dig spell, and it's second ability is useless with Tetsuko on the field. I would also cut Novice Knight because it doesn't seem to be benefiting from anything in this deck since you're not running enchantments or equipment. Wall of Vines is one of the better one drop Walls in standard, so I would add a couple of those in Knight's place. I hope that's enough advice for now, I know I threw a lot at you but if you have any questions feel free to tag me and I'll find my way back here. :)

Novice Knight or Mist-Cloaked Herald would probably be good for the deck, though right now they are pretty hard to consistently play on turn one. Until we get Hallowed Fountain, there just aren't that many turn one untapped sources. Maybe it's worth it regardless though. Who knows?

Playtesting myself, I've felt that Danitha Capashen, Paragon and the Captain's Hook have been a bit clunky, so maybe one could swap those and a Squire's Devotion for a set of Novice Knights.

I did a little play testing and found that there aren't enough creatures. If one of your creatures bites it you may not have another target for your equipment. I would suggest Novice Knight or Mist-Cloaked Herald.

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 knights: consider Sigiled Sword of Valeron, Novice Knight, Valiant Knight, Knightly Valor, and Lena, Selfless Champion. There's a ton of other knights out there that are also worth including.

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.

It is cheap but I would drop some of the non-creature spells in favor of cheap creatures. Core 2019 has Rustwing Falcon and Novice Knight. Or any of the many white 2/1 creatures from various sets.

Moar Benalish Marshal

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?
