So after our Heroes left Dominaria to fight Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker on Ravnica something began to happen to Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain. After fighting the Cabal for some years she became more and more obsessed with her artifacts. She neglected her crew more and more as she crafted some powerfull artifacts to help her and the crew against the Cabal. It went as far as she banished Shanna, Sisay's Legacy from the Weatherlight because Shanna questioned the crews worth compared to the artifacts. The rest of the crew new they had to do something so they started a mutiny against thier former Captain and Hero. This Broke Jhoiras heart and at the same time infused an enormus rage inside her. All of the crew members who participated in the mutiny saw jhoria gather magic, powerful magic and then just dissapear. She was no longer on Dominaria.
Next challenge: Create a modern balanced squirrel who transformes into either a planeswalker OR a stronger creature!

Im very cautious of anything that requires me to do damage to my opponent. It really needs a sure way of doing that, like Thief of Sanity. And with something like Weatherlight, even if you get the attack through you're not guaranteed to get anything from it. But yeah the synergy is there, its just that sometimes, for some reason cards just dont work. Logic may didtate that it should, but only experience prove it for sure.

The other thing with a spell like Syncopate is that the Opponent can play around it.
When I had Clash of Wills in a deck I always Sided it out in Game 2, for that very reason.
It took me a long while to realise that I just needed to drop it.

Interesting deck idea, i think you should capitalise on the whole historic mechanic, since you have a good engine base here, its just a bit messy. I think cards like Weatherlight and Board the Weatherlight would be useful here, as well as increasing Danitha Capashen, Paragon to a 4 of, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain to a 3 of, Valduk, Keeper of the Flame to a 3 of and Shalai, Voice of Plenty to a 2 or 3 of. Shes very strong. Of coarse this means dropping some non legendary creatures, like Champion of the Flame , Adanto Vanguard and Storm Fleet Sprinter , i like Siren Stormtamer in here for protection.
omg and you can use Urza's Ruinous Blast effectively too! Thats real nice.
Now with this Legendary synergy going on, I think 3 Blackblade Reforged is your best equipment! I'd drop the 2 Short Sword for the extra two copies. I also like Forebear's Blade over Sigiled Sword of Valeron so its up to you which one you want to run, but you'll want 2 copies over 1 of each, in my opinion. I like being able to move the equipment for free on Forebear, but making dudes with Sigiled Sword is good too. Your call here.
And yes, i hope you pull well for the land base, it will speed it up immensely!
Best of luck! +1 I'd like to see where you take this list. It looks interesting. If you got some time, i'd appreciate if you could give me some feedback on my deck? Song of the Conclave (Tokens)

Hi DeadStrife. Thanks a lot for the comment and the up vote! It is great to get some feedback, even when we still are in spoiler season, so a lot can change.
I would like to answer each of your points:
I would not go below 25 unless I would cut two 5 drops. This deck and standard in general, you need to hit your land drops. This deck really wants to be able to play on curve, and at least be able to potentially activate Resplendent Angel at some point consistently. The deck does lack card draw. Losing Chandra, Torch of Defiance really hurts this deck, and I have considered many different options, and Mentor of the Meek could come into the mainboard, but I think it would hurt the overall gameplay game 1. Huatli, Warrior Poet is just a bit of testing and for fun. Ideally she would be the new Tajic ! Or Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants, but you would need to play 8-12 two drops for him to shine. Weatherlight is sweet! Always wanted that card to work, but is a little slow. Abrade not being in standard anymore might make it work. Sarkhan's Unsealing is a no-no. Lyra Dawnbringer is the only way to trigger the card, and to make it work you need to play much more higher end creatures.
The problem I have with Boros Challenger is that the mentor ability lends itself to be better in an aggressive deck. The power level is a little low, and Mentor does not strike me as a great constructed ability you want to be build around. If you want to synergize your creatures and play with the mentor ability, I would play Goblin Banneret and Boros Challenger. Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice and Legion Warboss does have mentor, but I would argue that this a just extra topping, since we are playing them for the static abilities. As I told Southland,Knight of Grace is better. Also gets the trigger with History of Benalia.
I am going to change a lot of the numbers and the deck in general the next weeks to come. Still needs some testing, but it could be a fun deck to play at FNM. I tend to tune things and see how far you can take it, so please comeback in a bit of time and check it out again if you are interested. Again, thanks a bunch for the comment and suggestions!
Another thing I'm considering is adding blue to really spice things up, and make it as close to Jeskai Aggro we saw in INN-RAV standard, but Mantis Rider might be a bit too good for standard again ;)

I feel like Board the Weatherlight is excellent here as well, since RW doesn't have the best draw. You could also run the actual Weatherlight though too. It's a bit expensive by comparison, but it'll give you a lot more attempts to search up your angels. Sarkhan's Unsealing could give you some extra removal when your angels land. Obviously, you don't want a full playset of Swiftblade Vindicator in control and it might not be an angel, but the card can get so scary with Aurelia and Shalai that you might want to consider 1 or 2. You could also do to pick up Karn, Scion of Urza if only for the draw power and ease of cast. Lastly, splashing blue for Teferi, Hero of Dominaria (and for Blue in general) could really push your deck into crazy land- even if it would hurt the overall effectiveness of Shalai's Counter/Anthem ability.
Love your deck so far +1, I can't wait to see what you do with it as more GRN cards are revealed this upcoming week. :)

I imagine you're running way too many lands. I think the big issue this deck has (and just R/W in general usually has) is it's lack of draw. Consider adding your Mentor of the Meek to the main board or a second Arch of Orazca for some much needed draw. Huatli might be a little under utilized compared to another angel, but I think she'll be fine overall. All in all a fun deck list I think if you can get it rolling. That's an easy +1 from me.
For new card suggestions, Sarkhan's Unsealing could add some extra bang to the entrance of your biggest angels. Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants assists your little guys and mentors. I think if we're looking at pure fun, I think the Weatherlight is a blast to play with in Midrange and it'll help you get Aurelia and Lyra super quick, and it can be piloted easily enough by your setup's 3 drops.
Everything passed this is kinda safe to ignore if you're happy with your deck as Midrange. While it's kind of a moot point since you're not aggro, I agree with Southland in that Boros Challenger has potential, but if you're dead set on triggering Path of Mettle, consider Sunhome Stalwart. Knight of Grace is good and pretty darn cool, and it doesn't die to black removal or Vraska, Golgari Queen but it's not going to help push the game for you or synergize with Aurelia.
Lastly, I think your deck lends itself really well to a Tempo build with your current costs. Consider looking into Goblin Banneret, he can even Mentor your Angels if you give him a chance! Playing the Goblin or Healer's Hawk gives you a nice curve to play your angels into, and they're both great Mentor targets. It's not quite aggro, because you'd be playing them as filler creatures hoping to get some advantageous trades as your opponent burns removal on them. It's just a little more buffer room for you to sweep the game with your Angel Army when Resplendent Angel and Lyra Dawnbringer hit the board.
Obviously keep a look out for the new GRN cards, since Tajic, Blade of the Legion will be (probably) getting a new card. He maaaaaaaay be useful for you. :)

I think you have something there! I have a couple of suggestions:
