Drawing inspiration from On Serra's Wings, Serra's Boon, Serra's Liturgy and Serra Ascendant.

It can't be a commander itself, but useful in general for commander format. Especially decks with Elspeth, or Superfriends decks with a lot of 1/1 token production. Or just any token production decks with a lot of white.

Make a land with suspend. Unless that's a ninja I see on the notification beacon. In which case, do the challenge above.

ZanarDusk on Azorius, hand of control

I'm liking the idea but I think there are a couple things that don't flow well with the deck. Makeshift Battalion doesn't really have a place as a 3 drop in a deck like this.
For similar reasons, On Serra's Wings could also be hard to use. The best case scenario would be a Warden or a Guardmage, but even then you aren't really going to make a big difference. I'd invest more on control and add other wincons with a sideboard.

This deck seems to have a couple of weird things and a couple of holes in it. First off, your ramp seems to be through the roof and I don't really see why that's necessary. I would recommend cutting some of, if not all, the cluestones or maybe a sorcery speed ramp spell. Maybe consider switching one of your current sorceries for a Skyshroud Claim and probably switch Druid of the Anima for Sylvan Caryatid . Related to this is your current lack of enchantment cost-reducers. I would recommend adding one or two back in. You can switch some of your ramp for cards like Herald of the Pantheon or the new Starfield Mystic .

Next is card draw and tutors. You're not doing too bad at this, but I'm surprised you're not running Satyr Enchanter , Kor Spiritdancer , Sram, Senior Edificer or Open the Armory . Maybe even Three Dreams or Plea for Guidance are playable as well. Also, I think Harmonize deserves a spot because it can get you back in the game without any help.

Another thing you seem pretty weak on is removal. Both targeted and mass. I think Beast Within or Generous Gift or both would pretty easily fix your targeted removal. Maybe even Decimate or Qasali Pridemage . I think you ought to run at least one more board wipe. Single Combat or Divine Reckoning seem prudent. If you wanted to be able to hit more types of permanents, I'd highly recommend Tragic Arrogance .

My final category of things to add are other auras/enchantments and recursion/protection. Bear Umbra has been reprinted and it's still not here and Unquestioned Authority is also good. Also, the new Treefolk Umbra seems good enough to run. Maybe add back in Snake Umbra for card draw. Maybe On Serra's Wings or Asha's Favor for the host of abilities they grant and maybe Boar Umbra . For recursion and protection I'd say Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Umbra Mystic and Boros Charm are all cards that belong in here. Adding back in Retether seems like it would be fine and including either Eternal Witness or Auramancer or both might be good too. In general, I think this deck needs to be rebalanced a little bit.

Now, I'm sure you're thinking, "But my deck is already perfect. What am I supposed to take out?". I'm here to tell you, you're wrong and there are a few cards that seem ripe for removal. First off, Gideon's Intervention seems kinda silly in here. Really not what the deck wants to do. Maybe there are one or two cards that you really don't want to see in a game, but I think having single target removal in place of that would be better. Next off is Combat Celebrant . This guy is kinda slow, really vulnerable, and not an enchantment. If you really want this effect go with Aggravated Assault which, in concert with Bear Umbra, can give you infinite combats. Also, I think it's time for Wall of Reverence to bow out. It can gain you a bunch of life, but I don't think that it's worth the slot. As I mentioned before, the Keyrunes are easy pulls for some card draw spells, enchantment cost-reducers, and maybe another (probably basic) land or two. Maybe one or two other ramp spells (I might consider cutting Burgeoning if you don't add in more card draw) are worth cutting. I think 10-12 is a good number of ramp cards for this deck. Some of the weaker auras I'd look at are Scourge of the Nobilis , Felidar Umbra and maybe Mammoth Umbra and Burning Anger . Maybe I'm wrong about most of or all of those auras. That seems like the most difficult category to cut from.

I hope you've had fun reading all of this and that maybe a couple of my suggestions make a difference.

Hell yeah! Another heroics deck! I have one too but Daxos the Returned commands mine, same idea tho.

Some creatures that I don't see here that could benefit the deck are Celestial Ancient , Danitha Capashen, Paragon Dawnbringer Charioteers , Graceblade Artisan , Lagonna-Band Trailblazer , Sram, Senior Edificer , Wingsteed Rider , Umbra Mystic and my personal favorite Thran Golem .

Some enchantments I really like in my deck are Celestial Mantle , Daybreak Coronet , Divine Favor , Face of Divinity , Griffin Guide , Hope Against Hope , On Serra's Wings Angelic Destiny and Bonds of Faith can go offensive or defensive. You should look into some umbras like Felidar Umbra and Hyena Umbra .

Windborne Charge is a great little pump spell for a good cost. I'm surprised you're not running any enchantment tutors. Crystal Chimes is great graveyard enchantment recursion.

I noticed you have some token generation. Intangible Virtue could be an option. With that said Sigil of the Empty Throne is an excellent card in decks like this.

I realize I've only suggested white cards but that's the only overlapping color our decks share.

Sorry to spam this comment with so much but I got excited. I love the heroic mechanic and I'm glad to see other people utilizing it. A big enchanted +1 from me!

xaarvaxus on Brago - Where did my cards go?

Cards like Ghostly Prison and Propaganda plus putting in some boardwipes like Wrath of God will help curb token strategies. Throwing down Cleansing Nova and then blinking out your team with Eerie Interlude is going to give you a huge advantage.

Beating out big flyers that can block your commander will probably come down to more evasion like Whispersilk Cloak and Steel of the Godhead [which should replace either Wings of Aesthir or On Serra's Wings as those 2 auras really don't do enough].

Could make the argument for taking out a Reaper. The damage to you really hurts vs. aggro and it can generally be a little awkward if you're behind. But it's basically our only way to grind vs. control and midrange.

Since you want to be curving out as well as possible, I wouldn't touch the 1-, 2- and 3-drops, as you're a little light on those already. On the other hand there are loads of 4-drops to pick from. Although I like the knight flavor, I'm not big on On Serra's Wings and would probably start there. Although it can steal a game here and there, the risk of tapping out for a 4-drop and ending up getting 2-for-1'd by cheap removal is a dealbreaker for me.
