Honor of the Pure
White creatures you control get +1/+1.
Honor of the Pure Discussion
20 hours ago
If you really want to throw people off, I can always recommend Mana Tithe , Rebuff the Wicked , and Lapse of Certainty (a card I need to personally seek out). White rarely has instant speed interaction, so being able to effectively counter spells is a good way to catch someone off guard. I don't know how budget your definition of budget is for the deck, but Rebuke and Tithe are ~$3 or less, and Lapse is very cheap.
Kwende really doesn't seem to do enough for any creature but your commander, If you have a Voltron sub-theme like my Tomik deck, that's alright, but only like 3-4 creatures have First Strike in your deck out of 30 total. Some sort of enchantment or creature anthem like Honor of the Pure or Benalish Marshal might be more useful?
Otherwise, I have no other recommendations. Stealing the inclusion of Emergence Zone to put in my mono-white deck, I hadn't thought of including it for surprise Instant-speed plays. +1 from me!

Angelic Destiny is a nice card. No synergy. Try to think how it supports the theme and the majority of your cards.
Chalice of Life Flip is slow, but is immune to most board wipes sooo its good and bad. If you are going to run this, you need an "enters the battlefield gain x life" such as Cathedral Sanctifier as a simple example. I will follow up on this below.
Choice one, having both will slow you down A LOT.
Also, its considered bad taste to link your deck on another decks comments. Next time message.

This lets you lower the overall CMC of the deck- in modern playing more creatures quickly is basically mandatory unless you are packing a lot of powerful disruption.
Skipping that, lets look at flat upgrades and options from modern. Unearth is better than raise dead. Honor of the Pure will almost always be better as another ally creature. Ordeal of Heliod is cute lifegain, but since most lifegain is intended for burn, it getting countered by a Searing Blaze hurts bad. Ondu Cleric will perform its role excellently.
Drana, Liberator of Malakir is the most efficient ally 'lord', even if they aren't a lord. Flying is super relevant too. Still, it being good makes it expensive.
Past that, naming ally for tribal lands is good. Unclaimed Territory and fixing like Beastcaller Savant gives access to the rest of the cheaper allies and will be the most efficient way to spend your budget- Jwari Shapeshifter and Oran-Rief Survivalist will go a long way to taking it from 'casual funstuff' to 'strong casual stuff'.

Regardless, I think you're onto something with the mana dorks.
You're playing a lot of really expensive lands and not that much interaction, so going for a fast mana plan would probably be a good idea. I'd keep the leyline and add a whole lot more support for it.

Darksteel Myr is to slow.. Oketra does the same for 1 Mana more, but much much better.
Swiftfoot Boots also slows you down. You want to play creatures to share their static abilitys. So stick with creatures, creature removal, hand disruption.

This looks really good! Your creature base is solid. But... you have no removal spells. I suggest that you cut things like Honor of the Pure because it only hits half the creatures and Raise the Alarm for things like Cast Down and Oblivion Ring for budget and better cards like Path to Exile if you felt like splurging. Concerted Effort is also worth mentioning here.

My first modern deck how Humanity works. by using raging aggro by putting stuff like Thraben Inspector , Boros Elite and buff them with stuff like Coat of Arms or Honor of the Pure could be good late-game buffs.
Removals- In this case, there will be no stuff like Path to Exile because it's kinda budget so I've have decided to put stuff like Fiend Hunter , Banisher Priest or fast spell-like Celestial Purge , Seal Away , Sunlance etc.
Mana ramp- Since this an aggro deck so it should include too much mana ramp for the help, But this case for sparing I've have decided to include Talisman of Hierarchy , Pillar of Origins for an emergency.

There's not really much in the way of mana ramp for white outside Tron lands or Mox stuff, so I do suggest running a full set of Ballyrush Banneret . Typically, as tempting as 4+ CMC mono-white spells are, they're pretty much unplayable in Modern. Try to get your AVG CMC to 2 or less and only include maybe 4 spells at 4-5CMC, and those should preferably be creatures so you can take advantage of Ballyrush.
Great all-around mono-white spells: Brave the Elements , Path to Exile , Return to the Ranks / Immortal Servitude , Oblivion Ring / Journey to Nowhere , Oppressive Rays , Honor of the Pure , Thraben Inspector , Knight of the White Orchid .
I'm not seeing any reason to run Snow-Covered Plains. On Thin Ice would take advantage of them.
