This is one of those decks that really wants to be mono-white. Bone splinters and Bloodsoaked Champion aren't enough alone to justify the risk of dead cards. It also frees up slots for utility lands.
Now if you were splashing for a full hand disruption package, Sin Collector and all, thats a different route. The other interesting B/W humans route is Cartel Aristocrat/Zulaport Cutthroat. If you're really feeling like building a rogue deck you can abuse Plunge into Darkness Postmortem Lunge and Dismember to turn on fateful hour.
I'd mainboard path in place of bone splinters- it really is that good. With the remaining couple of slots from bloodsoaked, its worth looking at Accorder Paladin Akrasan Squire more Banisher Priest etc Devoted Crop-Mate is playable, if not quite as abusable as Order of Whiteclay. Fiend Hunter can serve as an extra set of banisher priest, with the upside of a better blink interaction.
Check out other budget humans lists- they're the most populous tribe, and the options available are staggering, even if they do tend towards the thalia's lutentant package.

EspioNova I don't think Angelic Page is a good creature, and it doesn't really have any good synergy with angels. If it's 2 mana flyers what you want, you could use Leonin Skyhunter which is a knight, or Aven Squire which gives +1/+1 without tapping, or Angelic Wall which is on theme with angels and will block many things in early game. But really, it would be much better to use those 2 manas in more powerful cards like Wall of Omens, Knight of the White Orchid or Honor of the Pure, or at least in adding more knights like Knight of the Holy Nimbus, Knight of Meadowgrain or Accorder Paladin.

What's kept Accorder Paladin in the deck over other 2-drop is its 3 power and ability to boost other Knights. I'm currently looking at Sigiled Paladin as Accorder's replacement, as it can do the same.
Knight of Meadowgrain is okay, but doesn't make the cut due to a lack of synergy. Having my Knights benefit each other makes the deck play better.
Brave the Elements was in the deck before and was cut to make room for a full set of Gideon and additional removal. This deck plays to a strict curve, leaving almost no mana to spare for additional spells in the first few turns of the game. If any mana does happen to be left open, I feel it's better spent interacting with my opponent's board.
Flagstones of Trokair doesn't add anything to the deck whatsoever.
Horizon Canopy has a real cost in its lifeloss. An early Canopy would deal damage to me that otherwise wouldn't of happened, which will matter against other aggro decks and decks that use burn spells for reach.

Have you considered Knight of Meadowgrain in place of Accorder Paladin. Also, I feel like Brave the Elements is too valuable to not have any copies in the main, since potentially making your entire board unblockable can be devastating. If you're looking for nonbasic lands to play, Flagstones of Trokair doesn't have a big opportunity cost, and neither would running a singleton Horizon Canopy.

Thanks for advise on my Knights deck. Any reason you dont have Accorder Paladin? Battle Cry is so good in this deck?

Hero of Bladehold, Ogre Battledriver, Accorder Paladin, Cryptborn Horror, Goblin Wardriver, Akroan Hoplite, Goblin Rabblemaster, Mardu Ascendancy might be good inclusions in a hyper aggessive deck. Have played with Battledriver and Bladehold before, disgusting amounts of damage

So I could replace:
I'm also considering Mutavault. However, I don't want to limit my ability to play 2 1-drops on Turn 2.
