Thraben Doomsayer and Gather the Townsfolk can synergize well with your etb triggers. Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip would probably be better than Caller of the Hunt in most games. If the black tokens don’t bother you, Westvale Abbey  Flip can create tokens without taking a creature slot, and Castle Ardenvale can do the same for mono-white tokens.

ThisIsMyAccount: Those are two cards I had been on the fence about (but leaning towards not running them). I guess the instant speed of Raise the Alarm is going to be relevant more often than the fateful hour of Gather the Townsfolk in the end. Shefet Dunes I didn't choose becacuse it doesn't let Sunpetal Grove come in untapped, and all my one-drops need green mana, so there are hands where it could potentially slow me down a turn. What I might try is running it as the 21st land instead of replacing a forest, and see how it goes.

Either way, thanks a lot for the comment!

Raise the Alarm > Gather the Townsfolk

Shefet Dunes is also a good card in decks that go wide.

I second what other people are saying- cut down the expensive creatures and run stuff like Doomed Traveler or Festering Mummy. I'd cut Beckon Apparition and Gather the Townsfolk as well as the Epicure of Blood and Read the Bones as both are somewhat slow. And I agree with Spell_Slam's recs too.

Nice deck!

Oh and Raise the Alarm is just better than Gather the Townsfolk and Triplicate Spirits is also an option if you want to go heavier into white. Sorry for the double post :p

In my opinion 31 lands are too few for having a consistently reliable mana base, especially considering that you don't run many mana rocks and that white does not have mana dorks: I would suggest you to add more Plains and a Drifting Meadow which is convenient as you can cycle it just in case. I assume the deck is on a budget, so let's not consider expensive mana rocks, but a Marble Diamond should be helpful. As most of your creatures are either humans or angels, Pillar of Origins is a cheap rock (both CMC and $ wise) that could have some use.

To make some space, I'd start getting rid of sorcery speed spells providing little added value such as Gather the Townsfolk or redundant as Silverflame Ritual.

I also wanted to say that I will not be taking out Omen of the Sun until this deck is completely out of rotation. Then I will replace it with Gather the Townsfolk, which, unlike Raise the Alarm--which I originally had--actually creates humans. Anywho, thank you soooo much for your advice.
(Sorry, it's a little bit late to be responding to your comment...) I just wanted to say thank you, MrBoombastic. I am quite aware of the rare commenting on decks, so thank you so much.
