You adapted a Modern deck to deal with the restrictions of the Noble format. Clever.
Given the number of 1-drops and 2-drops you want to play fairly quickly, you might be better off playing Raise the Alarm, instead of Captain's Call. Yes, you get one less creature, but cutting the mana cost in half lets you play a Soul Warden on t3 and play some tokens.
Scatter the Seeds is another token-producing spell that you might want to consider, especially since Convoke lets you cast it more easily.
Presence of Gond is not good in your deck. Unless you're going infinite, it's pretty much just a single 1/1 each turn. Your deck is likely to kill on t5 or t6, so you only produce 3-4 tokens, assuming the enchanted creature hasn't been hit with Lightning Bolt. The only time you get an advantage is when you cast Archangel of Thune, and use your soul sisters with the token produced to get more +1/+1 counters. However, I think a convoke card that produces tokens would be more useful in that situation, as well as being better in most other scenarios.
I don't like Rootborn Defenses in this deck. How are you willing to leave 3 mana open during an opponent's turn? Unless you add Raise the Alarm, you have no other way to spend mana during an opponent's turn, so you waste any turn where you leave up mana for Rootborn Defenses without casting it, and the best you can populate is a 1/1 flying Spirit token.

Ok, wow! Thx for this analyse! To be honest, I hate this deck.. But it will probably be the favorite of my gf. I didn't look at the actual modern format of it. I just look at what can be interesting for a deck like this.
I prefer to stay with Ajani's Pridemate. He doesn't depend of the noble to be great in the deck. At the moment he's on the battlefield, it's going to be bigger and bigger. Spike Feeder is an infinite combo... Who likes infinite combo in a casual and friendly format??
I never look at the land.. You're right, there's some that make you gain life. Should have think about it.
I like Captain's Call. If i draw it at turn 4-5 and i don't have a lot of cards in hand, it just better than Raise the Alarm cause the mana is not a problem anymore. I still can play anyother 2 drop + Soul Warden at turn 3. Also, I still will add Raise the Alarm and I only have 2 Captain's Call, so i think it will be fine like this.
Thx again for all these suggestions and advices! It's very appreciate!

Oh and btw, Graypelt Refuge is unco, so I won't use it

Sorry, I meant Selesnya Guildgate, not Graypelt Refuge. Got my land cycles mixed up somehow. Yeah, if you're using your uncommon slot for lands, you have better options than Refuges (Gemstone Mine, City of Brass, tri-lands, etc).
Now that you're playing Raise the Alarm, convoke spells get better, so I'd be tempted to replace Captain's Call with the last two copies of Triplicate Spirits, since Raise the Alarm is free if you're convoking a spell in the same turn. In the scenario you described, you have 4 mana and a mostly empty hand, meaning you either got boardwiped (Electrickery is a common), or you probably have 2-4 creatures onboard. For that situation, Triplicate Spirits is better, since the tokens have flying. The reason I recommend Triplicate Spirits over Scatter the Seeds is that you're fairly heavy on white mana, so you might not have GG when you need it.
"Who likes infinite combo in a casual and friendly format??" Anyone who comes up with decks like this one: The Bourgoise Ascendancy. The deck doesn't need to go infinite to win, but it makes the math easier.

thx for all the suggestions and analyse once again!
For the infinite.. I'm playing with friend. We play for fun. If you get a deck that win in 3-4 turn (everytime) it's not really fun for them. That's why i don't like infinite combo in this format.
(btw, a 400$ deck vs a 40$... I'm not expecting that the 40$ will win in general... I don't play competitive)

The $400 price tag is because the list has 4x Lotus Petal, the price of City of Brass is listed for the Arabian Nights version, and I wanted to list the Jeskai Ascendancy as foil to indicate the Noble. I was testing Lotus Petal online because I wanted to see if I could replace some lands with a card that doubles as a target for Retraction Helix. The actual price is somewhere around $60.
