Honor of the Pure Discussion

This would push white weenie into overdrive. Honor of the Pure, Rally the Ranks, and a pile of Elite Vanguards and Expedition Envoys will turn into a value machine, and +1/+1 counters are easy to come by. Even dropping it down to base power 1 might not be enough.
My first thought is that if you want it to allow multiple draws per turn, make it a quantity limit, something like "Whenever you attack with six or more creatures, draw a card for each attacking creature beyond the fifth." I'm guessing at the numbers, so that might be too restrictive.
This card has potential, but I think it's giving a little too much free value to white, playing too much to its strengths.

I understand that the list as presented here is made up of cards from your pre-existing collection, but you may find it worthwhile to track down a few upgrades for the fun of it!

Not aware of the format you're referring to, but as a general deck, i've got the following suggestions:
If you're planning on making the deck "Go Wide Weenies", then you should be aiming to keep your mana curve as low as possible. Having spells costing 4 or more mana feels counter-intuitive to an aggressive gameplan.
You have a LOT of 1-of and 2-of cards in the deck, which is going to make is super inconsistent. I'd suggest getting more playsets of the cards that matter.
You currently have very few cards that help you go-wide, or benefit from doing so. I'd suggest focusing more heavily on the strategy of a quick, go-wide gameplan, and have cards that actually reward you for doing so (i.e. Honor of the Pure).

I build my decks to do 2 - 3 things max. Aside from ramp and draw, which every deck wants to have.
Let's look at Daxos the Returned. What does he want?
Okay. Let's see. We know we want to get tokens out, and we see his activated ability is not a tap ability. So we should take advantage of this and have an immense amount of mana rocks. Yes these are artifacts, but what we want is to be able to activate his ability 3, 4 or even 5 times per turn. We need the mana, so we need the slots.
Next, we know we want enchantments. Let's look at what type of tokens he creates: They are both and tokens, so enchantments such as Bad Moon and Honor of the Pure work beautifully as early-game curve pieces, or late-game fast plays. Then you also have Righteous War which will hold synergy with both colors.
But an army of tokens isn't enough; You also want to stop opponents from interacting with you. Here, you can choose one of three routes:
- Lay hard into prisons so that nobody can touch you
- Lay hard into death & taxes to destroy plays
- Mixture of both
This comes down to your personal meta. If your meta sees lots of heavy combat, prisons are best. If your meta sees lots of combos and big plays, D&T is best. If your meta sees both, mixed is best.
But all things should revolve around Daxos pumping up his tokens. True Conviction, Whip of Erebos, Ethereal Absolution, Brave the Sands, Commander's Insignia, Death Pit Offering (Wonderful after a wrath, or early game), Etchings of the Chosen will protect Daxos... and these are just pump spells. There's so much more you can have going on in there, such as: Anointed Procession, Divine Visitation, Song of the Worldsoul, Sigil of the Empty Throne... you can combo Conspiracy with Endless Ranks of the Dead... if you give them lifelink, through the plethora of enchantments that do so, you have Necropotence, Greed and Erebos, God of the Dead who all serve as draw engines...
So my Daxos deck would do the following:
- Ramp INSANELY hard
- Massive amounts of enchantment anthems
- A mixture of prisons and stax effects
Go wide and tall at the same time while building offensive and defensive positions. No card you draw into will ever be a dud, because it'll always serve to strengthen your boardstate.

Think of it as an Honor of the Pure that triggers your commander AND has an upside. Good card.

Hello IHATENAMES! Thank you for your comments!
Personally, while I think Adeline lends herself to work well with equipment, I don't want that to be the focus of the deck - I'd like the deck to focus more on powering up the tokens through anthem effects. Most of the equipment that is there is because it's able to offer things towards our gameplan (Veteran's Armaments, Stoneforge Masterwork), give some form of protection or evasion (Loxodon Warhammer, Darksteel Plate, Whispersilk Cloak), or offers an additional form of removal (Godsend, Sword of Feast and Famine, Shadowspear). Batterskull provides an additional creature, which further boosts Adeline's power.
My main problem with mass removal in a deck like this is most of the time it's counterintuitive, meaning it messes with us more so than our opponents. Otherwise, I would run Wrath of God and Day of Judgment 100%. As for targeted removal, I am aware that my package is rather lacking. I'm a big fan of getting rid of things before they're even a threat or have a chance to be a threat, hence the Silence and Orim's Chant. I want to add more, but my problem is I also like utility and most of the cards that say "Destory target Artifact or Enchantment" are over-costed in my opinion.
As for the anthem effects you suggested, my main problem with them is they're over-costed for what we get. Take Honor of the Pure as an example - it's two mana for a +1/+1 effect for all of our creatures. Metallic Mimic does something very similar, as does Thalia's Lieutenant. Intangible Virtue is perhaps something that I might add, but all the others are too much mana in my opinion for what they do. My problem with cards like Gauntlet of Power is there is another mono-white deck at the table, and I'd rather not help them out.
Regardless, again, thank you for your comments!

Kithkin Zealot might be nice SB tech for Jund, and Augury Adept seems like a great card advantage engine. Knight of Meadowgrain is excellent with pump effects, so depending on how many you have in your updated version I'd consider it.
