Creature — Spirit Knight
When Moonshaker Cavalry enters the battlefield, creatures you control gain flying and get +X/+X until end of turn, where X is the number of creatures you control.

Adeline, Resplendent Cathar might be a reasonable addition. she isn't a soldier but gives you extra fodder for you to buff and will hit like a truck. Also Mirror Entity and she will be good friends with the tokens she poops out.
Errand-Rider of Gondor, Resistance Squad, Spirited Companion, Loyal Warhound, Solemn Simulacrum, and Knight of the White Orchid are always reasonable additions. you need cards and mana to play them. they also love to be blinked and revived, which is what white does best.
You have plenty of blink synergy already. Eerie Interlude, Ghostway, Semester's End are things you should strongly consider, the delayed return allows you to dodge wipes, although youll lose your tokens. Teleportation Circle might be reasonable to add. Planar Guide can also be used offensively too. And The Eternal Wanderer is outrageously strong. It does everything.
Cut Arm the Cathars its awful at 3 sorcery speed. Things like Akroma's Will exist and are 100x better. I'd honestly have you revise most of your instants and sorceries. You dont have enough draw to use spot removal like this without putting yourself at a disadvantage.
Darien, King of Kjeldor is pretty silly, although he's expensive. with the soul sisters you run, you become very very hard to kill. Conclave Phalanx isn't great in my opinion without some blinking, but if you use something like Nykthos Paragon, its very silly Knight-Captain of Eos also can do a lot to make you invincible.
Flowering of the White Tree is an amazing anthem. probably the best in the game. Spear of Heliod is probably second if you keep mana up, just because it will likely turn offense to other players because of its awful ability.
Moonshaker Cavalry is probably an instant win if you play it
LANDS: This deck might actually be able to run Scorched Ruins.
I'll look at more low cost stuff later. most of my recommendations are like 5cmc+

I have a copy of End-Raze Forerunners in my Chulane, Teller of Tales EDH deck, but I plan to replace that copy with either Craterhoof Behemoth or Moonshaker Cavalry, but I am not certain which of those creatures I should choose. White is my favorite color, and I generally am more fond of flying than I am of trample, but the behemoth has haste, which could be very crucial, if I need to defeat an opponent quickly.

Cool deck :D
Also, new from Wilds of Eldraine, Moonshaker Cavalry, great way to close out GoWide games

ParacleX Thank you so much for the kind words! Boromir, Warden of the Tower is definitely a great card, being a direct improvement over Dauntless Escort. As a general rule, the list I show here is what I consider to the optimized in a vacuum. So feel free to experiment and adjust the list to fit your meta/matchups! And agreed, Moonshaker Cavalry aka Craterhoof #2 was exactly what the deck needed at this point.
So the reason why I feel lifegain doesn't have a place in this list is because it requires too much investment to be viable. The only inbuilt lifegain mechanic Emmara has is attacking with the tokens she makes, which have lifelink. This is sub-optimal since (1) you don't want to risk getting your tokens killed, (2) you can only attack once per round (3) you are normally tapping her tokens for mana and they don't naturally have vigilance. As such, if you really wanted to go lifegain with Emmara you would have to start adding cards like Soul Warden and Essence Warden. These cards are great, but by themselves they are kinda useless. At that point you might as well just go all-in and make a lifegain Emmara build, which in my opinion is not an optimal way to play her. But to each their own! Other than that, I cannot think of a lifegain card that is powerful enough by itself to slot into the current build. I am always open to suggestions though!

Moonshaker Cavalry getting full-art seems like kind of a poor decision for a new card.

Being honest I haven't really paid any attention to new MtG cards since maybe Modern Horizons 2 back in 2021. Really the only "new" card I can think of whose art I really like isn't even out yet - the textless promo version of Moonshaker Cavalry found here. The base art is cool, but that textless promo art is just exquisite.
