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.

Blinding Souleater could easily be replaced by Law-Rune Enforcer, or, if you'd prefer an artifact creature, Burnished Hart is just better in general.

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.

Consul's Shieldguard... see the Aegis Angel comments.

Court Street Denizen... see the Blinding Souleater comments, though this one is better so it's definitely worth keeping around if you want.

Drillworks Mole is a cool card. Basri Ket, Felidar Retreat, and Cathars' Crusade are good too.

Eldrazi Devastator is actually a card I used to run in my decks as a finisher. I would recommend something like Finale of Glory as an alternative that you can really sink your mana into.

Felidar Cub is nice, but War Priest of Thune is strictly better.

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.

Inspiring Overseer and Knight of the White Orchid are good.

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.

Toolcraft Exemplar is a really cool card that I have NEVER seen before. If it's working well for you, you should try out Serra Ascendant as well. It runs in a similar vein.

Welcoming Vampire is good too.

Celestial Flare could be replaced by Silence.

Dauntless Onslaught could be replaced by Charge, Bastion Protector, Benalish Marshal, Ethereal Guidance, Glorious Anthem, Guardians' Pledge, or Path of Bravery.

Divine Verdict could just be replaced by plain removal, like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Conclave Tribunal, or Oblivion Ring.

Feat of Resistance is nice.

Gideon's Reproach - see Divine Verdict's feedback.

Gods Willing is good.

Kill Shot - see Divine Verdict's feedback. Actually, for the rest of these cards see that and Dauntless Onslaught's feedback.

Aligned Hedron Network is good.

Cloak of the Bat and Hero's Blade - see Dauntless Onslaught's feedback, but also Commander's Plate.

Spidersilk Net doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If you want another 0-mana artifact, look no further than Mishra's Bauble.

Font of Vigor - see previous comment

Siegecraft - Eldrazi Conscription is one of the best auras in the game, but Battle Mastery is nice too

Not Forgotten - Rest in Peace, Ashnod's Altar

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!

i have a very similair deck and would love to give a small suggestion, first thing first i noticed you have a lot of cards with life link, now the only way to gain life with those creatures is by attacking and you won't always get a hit in, so i recomend using cards like Stone Haven Medic which allows you to get life with out attacking. if you want you can use my deck want to make you're opponent cry? for reference, now. you are going to need a way to keep crested sunmare alive for as long as possible so try to figure that out. P.S. i love the Authority of the Consuls i am supprised i didn't think of that before!

I've been working on similar deck (though no Blue), and StuBi pointed out how great Diabolic Tutor is, especially for finding Cliffhaven Vampire.

I'm not sure I understand Contraband Kingpin ... unless I'm missing some Artifacts, it seems the two-drop slot might be better served with something like Selfless Spirit/Stone Haven Medic or Transgress the Mind/Grasp of Darkness.

Draw well!

I'm not sure about Stone Haven Medic ... I agree Lone Rider  Flip doesn't flip often, but just being there puts a tremendous amount of pressure on an opponent (at least it always did to me!).

I think if I pull it, it's probably be for Selfless Spirit. Though Night Market Lookout, Transgress the Mind, and Grasp of Darkness are contenders for the slots as well ...

For now though, I think I'm gonna leave the Lone Rider  Flip, move March from the Tomb to the sideboard, and add some Chaplain's Blessing. We'll see ...

If I had to choose, I'd take Gideon, Ally of Zendikar in a heartbeat over Captain's Claws. But I'm hopeful I could find room for both in here (if I actually end up running this deck this season, I'm almost certainly going to buy Gideon as a two-of).

Thanks again, TONS!

I know we've both got early Non-Allies but I'm going to make a case for Stone Haven Medic over Lone Rider  Flip.

I don't seem to be getting Lone Rider  Flip to flip very often.

By contrast, the Medic can block quite a few Creatures, then you tap it at the end of your Opponent's turn to get the life gain.

Have a think about it.

Captain's Claws is very good. I'm debating whether or not I like it better than Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. He's just so versatile.

I might just end up stealing your deck!
