As far as i know in standard the only hexproofing i can think of is Mask of Avacyn . But it's definitely not as good as it should be if it needs to be competetive... howabout card:Apostle's Blessing as an alternative which could make a creature unblockable as well as protect it from unwanted spells. I like the touch with Essence Harvest , adding in Trepanation Blade could make the spell a lot more devastating too. Angelic Benediction would definitely be a hindrance to an opponent. They'd be leaving at least 2 creatures open to block and you'd have the option of killing either one with your attacker if they're forced to block every turn. I think a flyer with evasion and vigilance would suit this deck very well... Serra Angel or Serra Avenger . The prior is pretty costly but being able to attack and block with the same creature is a pretty big deal

@xiitributeiix I hadn't considered Undying Evil much before now, only because when I've used it before it was on creatures who had some type of effect on entering the battlefield that I wanted to maximize. Its a great card though and it might be something I can try out in this deck. I prefer low mana cost cards and try to keep the whole deck beneath 4 if possible. Thanks for the suggestion!
@gheridarigaaz I'm with you on Mask of Avacyn , and am eagerly watching Ravnica spoilers to see if there is anything new that would replace Swiftfoot Boots . I think Apostle's Blessing is good, but with Faith's Shield already in there already it is very similar. May have to play test a bit and see how it would work. Thanks for the suggestions!

I haven't seen any really good replacements yet sadly. Although, I do like the Desecration Demon , a 4 drop 6/6 flyer who just gets bigger and bigger is interesting for this deck too.

Spirit Mantle is rotating out as well. Early on I had both the Duty Bounds and the Aven Squires, but ended up rotating them out in favor of the Abolishers and Nighthawks. What I experienced was that the regen cost on the Duty bound was too high and the Avens were just ok, but not as much of a deterrent as a flyer with deathtouch.
So far the Dark Favor seems to be playing well. It is low cost and with all of the lifegain from the vaults and vamps it isn't a problem. The +3 gets doubled or quadrupled quickly and unlike the exalted bonus it sticks around after the attack phase to make tormented souls (or whatever its enchanting) less vulnerable.

Seeing how you want the deck to be fast i might be tempted to knock the land count down by two, it also means that with Vault of the Archangel and Cathedral of War you may wind up short on colored mana to mass-cast your smaller spells. I would actually run Duty-Bound Dead here because it gives that extra +1 the regen only suffices for late-game use. Tbf for a 1-drop at 2 toughness that's not too bad
