Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn. If you control an Equipment, put a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token onto the battlefield.

i think Open the Armory , Steelshaper's Gift , Magnetic Theft could help. being able to abuse sunforger and helps. could also add a Darksteel Mutation so open the armory could get you some removal for problematic commanders.
I was not a fan of Balduvian Rage since you have to attack.

Looks like fun! I assume you're operating on a budget?
Consider some cheap dual lands like Blossoming Sands or Selesnya Guildgate to help make sure you have the colors you need when you need them. A step up from those without spending too much money would be Sunpetal Grove , Canopy Vista , and/or Fortified Village . If you wanted to go nuts you could look at Windswept Heath , Temple Garden , and Cavern of Souls .
Maybe look into Blossoming Defense or Heroic Intervention to replace Woodcutter's Grit , Strength of Arms , and/or Cloudshift .
The front side of Mayor of Avabruck Flip buffs your dudes, and the back side provides you with more bodies when you need them. Champion of the Parish is of course nuts in a deck like this, but it is a little expensive.
There's plenty of other changes you could make to make the deck stronger, but that's where I would start. Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

I think there are a couple of different directions to go with this deck. The main ones I've come across in my brewing are:
I wrote a bit of a explanation of the inclusions in my brew if you're interested.
Here are some cool things I found:

Deco_y and Gleeock,
I'm with y'all on Gift of Orzhova and Commander's Authority ... they're not my favorites but they're way up there.
Thalia's in Strength of Arms ... is that maybe what you meant?

I've been trying to break Zada, Hedron Grinder since she was first spoiled. Same with Mirrorwing Dragon. And though I've seen and played a bunch of REALLY fun brews, I've yet to see one that's competitive.
That's where I'm hoping y'all can help: Please share your ideas and brews!
To get us started ...
Here's a list of all the ...

Here are the known playable archetypes:
- Blink: Abuse Blink effects (Essence Flux, especially) and ETB Creatures
- Clues/Artifacts: Investigate effects (Confront the Unknown, especially) and Artifacts-matter cards
- Counters: +1/+1 Counter effects and Counters-matter cards (multiple cards ... IMO this is the strongest archetype so far)
- Energy: Energy counters and Energy-matters cards
- Prowess: Prowess made better with Zada/Mirrorwing
- Tokens: Token-maker effects ( Silverfur Partisan , especially ... though Strength of Arms may actually be better)
- Something else entirely?
With both Zada and Mirrorwing rotating out of Standard in September, we don't have much time. Thanks in advance for your help!

Strength of Arms is quite good for buffing your creatures.
Mikaeus, the Lunarch also helps.
Mother of Runes provides some good protection.

To make the deck faster, you could add another 2-drop (e.g. Hamlet Captain or if you can afford it Duskwatch Recruiter Flip ) and some more combat tricks or removal (e.g. Blessed Alliance, Aim High, Repel the Abominable, Strength of Arms, Survive the Night, Prey Upon)
I suggest to cut Ulvenwald Mysteries, which only hekps in very long, grindy games and Neglected Heirloom Flip despite its synergy with Avacynian Missionaries Flip. Save it for the werewolf tribe, they have no trouble flipping it.
