Creature — Elemental Incarnation
If damage would be dealt to another creature you control, prevent that damage. Put a +1/+1 counter on that creature for each 1 damage prevented this way.
When Vigor is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

After play-testing 10 games with this against some of my own decks, here's what I found:
- In 6 out of 10 games, I could only play lands and cast Mayael for the first 6 turns, after which I could start using her ability. In 2 out of 10 games, I could also cast a ramp spell and play one more land (so I could use her ability by turn 5). In the two remaining games, it took longer to utilize Mayael (7 and 8 turns) and/OR hard-cast creatures. In my meta, this is a bit problematic as it is just too slow. I understand you don't want to include mana-weenies, because they mess up the results of Mayael's ability, but maybe you could consider some more ramping options. Some more mana-rocks maybe? Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone and Chromatic Lantern come to mind.
- Mayael is quite vulnerable. In the games I tested, she was dispatched multiple times with ease. Since you're relying on her for most of your strategy, maybe include some more protection like Swiftfoot Boots, Boros Charm, Flawless Maneuver, Vigor, Asceticism or Archetype of Endurance.
- The speed of your deck could also be improved by adding a few haste enablers; maybe stuff like Rhythm of the Wild or Fervor?
- Last but not least, with so many nice high-cost beaters in your deck you could also greatly benefit from the use of cards like Cream of the Crop, Lurking Predators and especially Kodama of the East Tree.
Hope some of this helps. Good luck with your brew.

How will you enable Erinis to attack without getting murdered by a 4/4? Or four 1/1's? Anara, Wolvid Familiar, Vigor, Alpha Authority, Regeneration, Broken Fall, Rogue's Passage and things like these might help. (I see the Saddle there, thats a good choice).

carpecanum thanks for the suggestions! I didn't see Benefactor's Draught when building - those block triggers are all worded differently. Good find. Would love a Vigor if I had one, but it's the sort of "auto-include" level of strong that makes me want to not include it, so I probably won't dish out for it.
