Battle Angels of Tyr
Creature — Angel Knight
Flying, myriad (Whenever this creature attacks, for each opponent other than defending player, you may create a token that's a copy of this creature that's tapped and attacking that player or a planeswalker they control. Exile the tokens at end of combat.)
Whenever Battle Angels of Tyr deals combat damage to a player, draw a card if that player has more cards in hand hand than each other player. Then you create a Treasure token if that player controls more lands than each other player. Then you gain 3 life if that player has more life than each other player. (It's a colourless artifact with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any colour.")

Brion Stoutarm deck:
Commander / EDH
SCORE: 2 | 7 COMMENTS | 1233 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER
So this is the deck as it was pre changes. First of all, I think you'll notice that I swapped 17 cards, not 15 lol. Secondly, you'll see that Osgir, the Reconstructor has taken Brion's job. After all the changes the deck has been through I found myself rarely casting Brion and the few time I've played with Osgir have been valuable experiences ;)
Cards out: Brion Stoutarm, Felidar Sovereign, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Serra Avatar, Iroas, God of Victory, Descend upon the Sinful, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Magma Phoenix, Prison Term, Figure of Destiny, Student of Warfare, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Land Tax, Dawn of Hope, Lone Rider Flip, Needle Spires
So with Brion out so too are the cards that combo with him the most like Serra Avatar and Magma Phoenix. With everything else I just needed to make space for stuff that I can squeeze a little (or a lot) more value out of. The one thing I am thinking should find its way back is Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. It's a powerful finisher and I'm now short on things that can take my board state and put an end to the game.
Cards in: Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Zirda, the Dawnwaker, Venerable Warsinger, Feldon of the Third Path, Battle Angels of Tyr, Dockside Extortionist, Deep Gnome Terramancer, Archivist of Oghma, Akiri, Line-Slinger, Wheel of Fortune, Faithless Looting, Teferi's Protection, Anointed Procession, Smuggler's Share, Expedition Map, Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Citadel

I just want to say that the Meekstone with vigilance is clever, I'm really intrigued to see that card used in something that isn't, like, Esper control (LOL).
One thing that jumps out at me is Kor Spiritdancer with only 8 auras in the entire deck. Usually, decks I see that use the spiritdancer have like... 20 auras or so.
Similarly, Glacial Crevasses (8) and Sram, Senior Edificer (9) also have relatively few cards that they actually interact with. Additionally, unless I missed one, none of your land tutors can actually find the mountains that Glacial Crevasses requires?
I get the feeling that the deck is trying to do too many things all at once, if that makes sense.
For the draw issue...
Magus of the Wheel and Wheel of Fate would be good cards to help, although the latter requires a bit of planning/foresight. Aerial Extortionist could work, too, since it also triggers when commanders are cast, and says "Whenever" with no X-per-turn restriction. Aggressive Mining would help you lean into the asymmetrical lands thing, but I wouldn't run it with fewer than 36 land. Battle Angels of Tyr are a bit more on the expensive side, but also great.

Welcome to EDH! My first Magic deck was a Boros deck, so it has a special place in my heart. <3
Additionally, I would consider removing most of the Mentor cards and replacing them with more immediately impactful cards. Mentor takes a while to build up and each mentor creature only buffs one other creature at a time, meaning it usually takes a few turns to get enough out if it to secure the win. If this is a token deck, I would recommend adding some more token produced as well, such as Hanweir Garrison Meld and Leonin Warleader.
Also, you have very little card draw and ramp. My recommendation is to have at least 8 sources of card draw and 8 sources of ramp. Some ramp I would suggest is: Boros Signet, Talisman of Conviction, Mind Stone, Smothering Tithe, Keeper of the Accord, and maybe Cursed Mirror or Professional Face-Breaker. Some card draw I would suggest is: Esper Sentinel, Battle Angels of Tyr, Court of Grace, Jeska's Will, and Laelia, the Blade Reforged.
I highly recommend checking out sites like edhrec.com for deckbuilding advice, as well as the Command Zone on YouTube:
I hope this has been helpful!

There are some creatures that hit pretty hard by themselves, or create tokens with Myriad. The tokens don't count against Exalted since they weren't declared as attackers:

Hi all! I'm getting back into the swing of things as I'm back from all of my intense AP Reading stuff and am playing again. I have another gameplay report, some updates, and some other thoughts related to the deck partly inspired by some player comments and questions here. Before I get to that however I want to respond to everyone I hadn't had a chance to yet!
The must-play card from Baldur's gate is Battle Angels of Tyr, which has already replaced Emeria Angel in my deck. Beyond that it's creating a headache for me with my Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck since there are so many more dragons to consider, but I haven't seen a ton more for Giada.
Glad you're enjoying the deck! You can totally write it up and link it here if you'd like! The more resources, the better for us all! As far as protection goes, Commander's Plate is a good choice, as protection is so much better than we think it's going to be. Ephemerate not so much unless we have a blink theme because of the one-off, situational nature of the card. I'd also add that, in my experience, we don't need to worry too much if she dies a couple of times. At 2cmc we can recast her a few times no problem, and smart opponents will not feel it's not worth it when there will be more immediate threats on the board, or will not want to target her when she has already put some massive threats out. They killed her four times the other night, and when they ran out of removal I put out a massive flight of angels to kill them out in almost a single turn! I'd agree on Eye of Vecna being really good draw. Less so on Thorough Investigation; it's rather Dawn of Hope that always manages to be just not that great for me, though time will tell on this all. I'm trying to get Inspiring Overseer back in as it seems good. I have Angel of the Dire Hour in my binder too and just want to warn that it is a trap card. We'll almost never hold open seven mana to use it, so most of the time it will be an otherwise vanilla 5/4 flyer for 7 which is just terrible. If she were 4cmc, then she would definitely be played!
Thanks for the compliment, comment, and upvote! I upvoted your deck too. Feel free to let us know how it goes and share any insights you have from play!
Thanks for the compliment, comment, and upvotes! I am glad you are enjoying the deck, as I have been! As far as cards go, I can definitely see the case for Shadowspear. It does fit the curve and gives us life-link, and if there are Sigarda players or other annoying things like that in your meta it could me a good choice for dealing with that as well. Akroma's Will also probably belongs, for thematic reasons as much as anything. It would be a good replacement for Eerie Interlude, though I have another plan for replacing that card currently. Legion Loyalty does sound like fun and I'd recommend it for more Timmy-minded Giada players. At 8cmc I'm personally not willing to risk it, but that's just me! I can see some ridiculous "I win!" plays with a card like that from time to time! Blessed Sanctuary does sound like fun, and my unicorn/alicorn/pony loving daughters would probably appreciate it very much! That being said, it doesn't do much to help us with life loss combos or infinite attacker/attack step combos, which are pretty common out there, and as such is pretty narrow on those grounds. I play a lot of combo myself in other decks, and my top deck on tappedout is my Inalla, Archmage Ritualist deck which is about the most degenerate combo deck outside of cEDH imaginable. So, my tip from the dark lord about dealing with combos is that the best way to deal with them is to kill the combo player, destroy the combo pieces, or call out the combo pieces so someone else with removal can help us destroy them. That being said, unicorns are fun and flavorful, and if your meta has lots of ping-type infinite combos I could see it as a good meta choice in those circumstances!

I like the flavor route you went with your primer. Definitely makes for a more interesting read lol.
If you want to lean into Exalted single combat shenanigans, I'd recommend checking out Silent Arbiter and/or Crawlspace, and force your opponents to play closer to your terms. Crawlspace is a bit on the pricier side depending on your budget. That's mostly because it lacks reprints. Silent Arbiter might be a better fit for you.
If you want more Myriad stuff which fits with your Battle Angels of Tyr (a card I'm very excited to try in my Isshin deck), I'd also recommend checking out Hammers of Moradin, also from CLB. There's also Duke Ulder Ravengard which can give your stuff Myriad, and technically attack solo. I used to run Herald of the Host before upgrading to Battle Angels of Tyr.
Hope some of those suggestions are to your liking.

Master of Ceremonies didn't perform as I wanted while taking a 4 cmc slot, which hurt a bit.
Halo Fountain on the other hand worked great for me! I got to draw an extra card alomst every turn when I had this out.
I took out Elspeth, Sun's Champion because I really want to try the new Ancient Gold Dragon but I guess Elspeth, Sun's Champion is the better card. In this case I just wanted to play Ancient Gold Dragon :D
I will play around with the dragon a bit and then I will put Elspeth back in or I'll try Battle Angels of Tyr, which I'm also a big fan of.
Thanks for the tip with the Grand Crescendo. As of now I don't know if I will put this in the deck, but the synergy seems pretty neat!
I'm thinking about taking Guardian of Faith so I guess this would be a nice card to swap in :)
