I like your use of Exalted to get Bushi Tenderfoot / Kenzo the Hardhearted big enough to survive combat and flip. I personally am not a big fan of cards like Ephara's Radiance , I just don't like slowing down my creatures, but you get it to work in this deck because you can put it on an Exalted creature who doesn't attack. The Bonds of Faith can be a little hit or miss depending on what the opponent has, but versatile and forgiving. +1 Great noble idea.

Thanks for the feedback! I was originally running 4 angelic benediction, but when I saw the tenderfoot while looking for some doublestrikers I knew he'd mesh perfectly with exalted. And while I have plenty back-up attackers, the overall feel of the deck is almost pillowfort-esque.

I think flying is probably better poised than first strike for your non exalted creatures.
Lifelink and Radiance should go, they're not ideal for an agressive deck and open you up to lightning bolt being a 2 for 1. Cut remember the fallen you're not even using all the modes. Angelic Benediction isn't that great either.
Play 8 counterspells. Maybe 3 sunlance and you can side them out if you fight a white deck. Also Guardian of the Guildpact is real good in control or aggro matchups and probably worth a maindeck slot or two as a standout exalted target. Also why stop with first strike maybe there are some double strikers at low cmc for a great exalted target. Maybe lotus petal would be worth running as fast mana.

I'm looking for some tips on a sideboard at this point, as I think I'm going to buckle and buy this one. Let me know if you've got any suggestions.
