Target creature you control gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn. (It can't be dealt damage, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targetted by anything of that colour, and anything of that colour attached to that creature immediately falls off.)
Scry 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)

I've been out of the loop for a while, so I'm not familiar with the Rakdos Midrange matchup. Would Ashes of the Abhorrent be good for the same thing? Or are you saying I need to put in Rest in Peace to replace something like Gods Willing for even more coverage? (Unlicensed Hearse at 3x would be over $30, and the deck now is only like $60 so kinda pricey to me, but otherwise I would absolutely slam it instead)

But Shelter isn't going to help Ivy block feather, Gods Willing is again not helping Ivy against the voltron, same with Feat of Resistance, same Balduvian Rage, Emerge Unscathed. That is a good amount of common Feather cards right there that have minimal benefit to Ivy if you are casting them for a Voltron attacking benefit, If you wanted to you could lean more into other cantripy agro only instants that grant something like menace or "cannot be blocked".. & again that is complete poopy for Ivy to copy as a defender... targeted extra combat is again useless as the defender. There is still a whole line of voltron open against her, particularly regarding instants/sorcs that are only beneficial for attackers.
& no I don't like her, I'm not a guy, & is she lazy? Yes, in a non-equipment voltron-rich meta she can swizzle other player's strategies. I just think that is different than truly shutting them down.

No. Act of Treason creates a control changing effect with a limited duration. It never "gives back" the creature, the effect simply expires. In addition, protection granted by Gods Willing prevents Damage, Equipping/Enchanting, Blocking, and Targeting. It can stop Act of Treason from resolving by making the targeting illegal, but once the spell resolves it no longer targets and the control changing effect can't be interacted with other than creating a new effect that overwrites it (such as by another player casting Ray of Command or activating Homeward Path).

Suppouse i use Act of Treason and i take control of my enemy's creature, then i end up my turn and when Act of Treason's forces me to give back the creature, cast Gods Willing and give protection against red to that creature, do the protection against red disables the "give back" ability from act of treason? if thats the case, would i keep that creature?

WhiteEagle_12 this is an aikido deck. That means no burn without countering or preventing or blocking. I need Essence Backlash for that very reason instead of Lightning Bolt. I've already played a burn deck before, and I don't particularly like it. Gods Willing isn't what I'm looking for either. Thanks for the feedback, though.

I would cut Essence Backlash entirely. It's just too expensive for what it does. I would also cut Archmage Emeritus, once again, too expensive for what it does. That puts your deck at an even sixty cards, which is optimal. From there, I would replace Harm's Way with Gods Willing. Replace Basri Ket with another Harmonic Prodigy and a Lightning Bolt followed by replacing you choice of your counterspells with three more Lightning Bolts!. This is Modern, we play Lightning Bolt in decks with red. It's essentially a given, especially in Spellslinger builds.

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.
Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.
Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.
Banisher Priest is good.
Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.
Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.
Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.
Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.
Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.
Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.
From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.
Welcoming Vampire is good too.
Feat of Resistance is nice.
Gods Willing is good.
Aligned Hedron Network is good.
Font of Vigor - see previous comment
Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned
Also consider Sphere of Safety.
I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!
