I don't believe the Heliod + Ballista combo works. Isn't lifelink just combat damage for creatures?

We are always trying to run Revival / Revenge, but it never stays in the final build.
We are currently playing with Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, and Lurrus of the Dream-Den, and likely gonna reintegrate Serra Ascendant (despite the true owner's disdain for that card) for some low cmc toolkit synergy and big lifegain sacrifices.
Lurrus of the Dream-Den has given us ample opportunity to set up Animate Dead + Karmic Guide into Sun Titan shenanigans, while bringing back a soul sister effect whenever we need one after a big nonland wipe.
Will keep you updated! We are also testing a new loop theme: Solemnity + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed / Luminous Broodmoth which has been testing extremely positively, especially with Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, or Kokusho, the Evening Star (with mikaeus at least)
Once we test some more we will finalize the updates to the primer/etc. We haven't been able to test in a multiple player setting, will likely set up a rig for Saturday night virtual playing soon.
In 1 v 1 testing, The new soul sister effects are back breaking. Easily gaining 15+ life by the time it matters and mitigating early game damage. Living Death with Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed loops keep things liquid and denying resources through spot exile or Remorseful Cleric have been the prime way of shutting down the game.

Historically, Sun Titan has a very special place in my heart. I always toss around the idea of running him whenever I run white as a supplemental color in EDH. The initial interaction I fell in love with was Sun Titan's ETB/attack trigger getting back an Eternal Witness from my yard to get anything back to my hand. I later discovered how nuts he is with reanimator shells, cheating out bonkers creatures by returning an Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, or Necromancy into play. There's also the swingy option of returning Underworld Breach to play every turn with an attack trigger and basically getting a free pseudo-Yawgwin into play on each of my turns.
Overall, I think there's just always huge merit to running him. If I'm really strapped on a top end when I'm in white, the thought "but what about Sun Titan" is bound to drift into my mind at some point.

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast is a repeat value engine that has the benefit of being able to protect itself and can deal with problematic permanents on the board.
+1: Plop a 1/1 construct with defender onto the field. This ability works well by itself, as it guarantees bodies to block for Daretti. We have a number of ways to utilize the 1/1 tokens too. We can use them alongside Smokestack to pay for the sacrifices. We can use it with Rankle, Master of Pranks to pay for the sacrifices as well. The +1 also means you are getting extra mileage from Skullclamp and draw a lot of cards. It also has strong synergy with Goblin Welder, so you can keep recurring your lock pieces. The tokens will also protect you from sac effects like Diabolic Edict or Smallpox or anything that forces you to sacrifice permanents.
-1: Sac an artifact to destroy a creature/artifact. This is the biggest reason to play Daretti. Repeatable removal of the two most common non-land permanent types is extremely helpful when your goal is to control the board. You can use the 1/1 constructs from the +1 to pay the cost, or you can use one of the two artifact critters in the deck. The sacrifice shouldn't be under rated, as you can reset Phyrexian Revoker to another permanent when your attack with Alesha, or you can jam spells when Ethersworn Canonist leaves before bringing her back with Alesha. This also allows you to remove your own artifact stax pieces if you wish to combo off or need to cast multiple spells in a turn. You can even choose to use this ability the first turn you play Daretti due to the large number of artifact rocks and stax pieces in the deck. This ability is the strongest reason to run Daretti in a stax package, you can move from strong board position to locking out the board if Daretti is left unchecked for a couple turns.
-6: Make three copies of target artifact in play/graveyard. You won't usually use this in an average game, but this can be back breaking in games that go long. We have some juicy targets in our own deck, with Sphere of Resistance (extra per spell), Thorn of Amethyst (extra for non-creature spells), Memory Jar (21 temporary cards drawn and go to your GY), Smokestack (after one or two rotations of 4x smokestack, the game is 100% over), Phyrexian Revoker (hose out most likely every active ability on the table), or even just a mana rock to get ahead. Choosing from an opponent's artifacts is also very nice in a 4 player game, because you can usually find something nice. Copying anyone's "Sword of X and Y" 3 times can be a game winning move, but honestly most equipment is a great choice to copy. I used to run Cranial Plating in this deck specifically for the 3x copies, which allow Alesha to get commander damage kills. Just note that copying legendary artifacts isn't wise, so trying to 3x someone's Umezawa's Jitte is a no-go. In more casual/high powered games, you'll sometimes be able to 3x copy a Wurmcoil Engine or Myr Battlesphere or similar big artifact doinks, which let you get kills on stalled out boards.
The last thing about Daretti that makes him worthwhile in my mind is the CMC. 3 CMC means he can come back from Sun Titan, which is pretty massive. Being a tiny constantly chugging threat engine for 3 mana also means he demands answers, or begins to punish games when he survives. I can recommend him in stax shells, where games are intended to go longer and you get more uses from him. In fast combo decks or midrange decks, someone like Dack Fayden will perform better due to draw filtering, and directly stealing an artifact as opposed to 1:1 trading artifacts like Daretti does. If you're interested in running this guy, consider him mostly for the +1 and the -1. The ult is a very nice cherry on top, but from personal experience I'm getting that ult about 1 of every 3 games he hits the table (in cEDH).

Played about 4 games now and some changes were made let me know what you think...
The following were added: Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Soul Warden, Aetherflux Reservoir, Sun Titan, Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Ajani's Pridemate, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Smothering Tithe, Soul's Attendant, Suture Priest, Flawless Maneuver, Altar of the Pantheon.
In replacement of the following; Skybind, Gerrard's Battle Cry, Daybreak Coronet, Consecrate Land, Celestial Dawn, Order of Leitbur, Glittering Lion, Clergy of the Holy Nimbus, Order of the White Shield, Brightling, Herald of Anafenza, and Knight of the Holy Nimbus
Celestial Dawn was hard to remove, but i was unsure how it worked with Blood Moon or Emeria, The Sky Ruin. So let me know your thoughts. I went more life gain, but it keeps me around a bit longer. With most of the creatures being low powered unless pumped up by other creatures, something was needed Sun Titan gets things back the mana cost for most critters is 3 or under. and if titan doesnt work or is removed Emeria, the sky ruin gets him back. Sun Titan and Kami of False Hope is so fun.
Shagoth Let me know what you think, its early in the process. i am interested in y

Very nice build, +1! =)
Would suggest Expedition Map to get to Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or any of your other goodies faster. Would echo the Sun Titan recommendation, as well. The only other thing that comes to mind is Winter Orb - really great synergy with Armageddon/Catastrophe.
