Shield of the Oversoul

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

As long as enchanted creature is green, it gets +1/+1 and is indestructible. (Lethal damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it. If its toughness is 0 or less, it's still put into its owner's graveyard.)

As long as enchanted creature is white, it gets +1/+1 and has flying.

Shield of the Oversoul Discussion

Alixen on Rafiq and his Many Weapons

So you seem to have a pretty solid deck here. I have some suggestions based on my decks Daxos of a hundred blades and Honorable Combat

For evasion and protection

Spirit Mantle pro creatures and a buff

Steel of the Godhead unblockable and lifelink

Unquestioned Authority pro creatures and a card

Shield of the Oversoul a nice secondary source of indestructible.

Offense

Fireshrieker or Duelist's Heritage was kinda surprised not to see double strike on anything else, it's useful enough you'll probably want it on hand if you can't keep Rafiq out.

Concerted Effort or Odric, Lunarch Marshal share all your keywordsInvocation of Saint Traft the timing of this triggers after your single attacker gets exalted so you get all those

Tutor

Wargate I will often use to get Maze of Ith

Dueling Grounds this one messes up swarm decks like mad and prevents you from getting overrun by a few creatures slightly larger than your exalted support.

Any reason you aren't including the aura Shield of the Oversoul which gives your commander +4/+4, flying AND indestructible?

You might wanna switch Shield of the Oversoul for something green blue. It's outside your commander's color identity.

Loads of nice suggestions mate, need to look into playtesting some later. The enchantments were used at one point, but I removed them for 1v1 games. I swap Shield of the Oversoul and Steel of the Godhead in for multiplayer games though. I think pumping up individual creatures doesn't serve much here, since Alara doesnt affect those. The fliers are very interesting as they tend to be the finishers every time. Thanks man!

I rean a lower cost aggro variant of this- relying on Shield of the Oversoul, Clout of the Dominus and Steel of the Godhead with Civic Saber and Blessing of the Nephilim to pump up, and Zur the Enchanter as a one-of. Curved into mantis rider and Lightning Angels where the shroud could really shine. Sedraxis Specter deserves a look as a resilient and powerful threat, and Skyrider Elf is both cheap and big without knights. Hide/Seek is a really powerful tool. I ran Shifting Sky for a while as a mixed pump with Guildscorn Ward, but it isn't great.

Looks like a fun deck, Rafiq is great and can be very powerful!
Saw your deck on the commander thread, here are some quick suggestions, hopefully some of them you like and are in your budget. Cheers!
Lands: cut Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree and some of your ETB tapped lands for some etb untapped multicolor lands to help your color production be reliable: Command Tower, Yavimaya Coast, Adarkar Wastes, Prairie Stream, City of Brass, Breeding Pool.
ramp: Sol Ring, Simic Signet,Azorius Signet, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach.
control:
Wrath of God > Terminus.
Rout > Martial Coup.
Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares, Cyclonic Rift.
recursion:
Eternal Witness, Seasons Past, Mystical Tutor, Archaeomancer.
card draw:
Recurring Insight, Fact or Fiction, Stroke of Genius.
things to help Rafiq of the Many crush your enemies:
Rancor, Inquisitor's Flail, Steel of the Godhead, Shield of the Oversoul, Swiftfoot Boots, maybe Command Beacon, Sword of Vengeance, maybe Sigarda's Aid.
given how many creatures creatures you run, you might want some tricks to protect your board from boardwipes. Bastion Protector, Make a Stand, Dauntless Escort may or may not be useful.
anyway those are just the things i thought of. I built a rafiq deck a while ago, you should be able to find it in my profile if you want any more suggestions, i went a little bit more in on the pillowfort/control/combo side of things but the list was a bit pricier too. anyway have fun and keep crushing!
cheers
