Your deck is like a classic Soul Sisters. On these last years, some new good stuff came to improve this deck. I'm obligated to recommend you some cards:

  • Ranger-Captain of Eos: Like Ranger of Eos, but exchange card advantage for 1 less mana and some sort of control buying you a turn against some combos, like Gifts Storm and Ad Nauseam decks, for example. Good to sidedeck, but you can also run some copies on main deck along with the original Ranger of Eos.
  • Voice of the Blessed: As soon as possible, exchange all your Ajani's Pridemate, especially because it's a monowhite Soulsisters, unless you're playing it on Selesnya variants. Obvious reasons.
  • Ajani, Strength of the Pride: The best planeswalker for Soul sisters, by the way. His first and last loyalty abilities are really helpful, also his second loyalty ability gives "Ajani's Pridemate" tokens. An unsanswered Ajani can win some games, so if possible, run 2 or 3 copies.
  • Castle Ardenvale: Land with token generation. Good especially on late game (issues as card advantage for short hands, no spells remaining and/or mana flood).

Some other stuff too:

  • Daxos, Blessed by the Sun: Another soul-like card. Lifegain events are triggered both when creatures ETB or dies, for 1 more mana and is legendary. Like Auriok Champion, it won't die to Lightning Bolt.
  • Solitude: An alternative to Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares.
  • Path of Bravery or Force of Virtue: Alternatives for Honor of the Pure.

I like the deck, but you're missing a lot of my favorite token deck cards. Here's a list worth perusing. It's a long list, and I wouldn't expect that you could find room for all of them. Just something to give you some ideas to think about.

Also, if you already have any of these on your list and I didn't notice, I apologize.

The only other thing I might mention would be Monologue Tax, which would be useful the way that you have your list set up.

Cheers!

Looks cool,my opinion:

Ahhh, hello again Omniscience_is_life. I feel like you’ve seen me through most of the big changes in this deck and I am always happy to hear your input.

Monologue Tax has honestly done it’s job really well. It ramps me or keeps other players pace slower and I can benefit a lot from both. I think it’s gonna stick around for now.

My initial thought on cutting Elspeth Tirel is “BLASPHEMY!!” and I wanted to counter with cutting Skyclave Apparition instead, But when I think about it more, you make a valid point. Skyclave is more versatile removal, and i’ve cut so much artifact/enchantment removal in recent iterations, I really do need it. Between Elspeth and Ajani, Strength of the Pride she is definitely the weaker of the two. I will try cutting her. I think 3 board wipes is still sufficient.

Now the question is, am I cutting her for Esper Sentinel , or Solitude ? Solitude is for sure going in, so i’ll have to drop something else to fit it in.

As for flash/instant speed bounce, i might just drop a plains and slot Winding Canyons back in. Canyons, Emergence Zone , and the redundancy of fetching them with Weathered Wayfarer or Expedition Map should be plenty. Although I do still have a Vedalken Orrery laying around from Oketra’s early days.

Maybe Ajani, Strength of the Pride may be useful? Nice lifegainer, you would take advantage of the token’s ability too and last option is very powerful and pretty easy to achieve in your deck

Omniscience_is_life maybe. Angelic Chorus gets insane though. 1 creature cast ends up making 10+ life with oketra and the soul sisters. Running out of spots of things that feel like they can be dropped. Maybe a board wipe? I have 5, but each lends it’s own benefit outside of wiping the board.

Winds of Abandon is one sided

Fumigate gains me tons of life

Dusk recurs my most needed creatures afterwards

Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Elspeth Tirel both gain tons of life and are atleast partially one sided.

Not sure which is weakest....
