Horizon Canopy Discussion

Ugh, to do the rest, I am just going to drop this text:
Drop 2x Pride Guardian, all artifacts but one Spear of Heliod, 1x Ajani, Caller of the Pride, 3x Ajani's Sunstriker, 4x Ajani's Pridemate, and 3x Healer of the Pride (24 total Cards), add 3x Glorious Anthem, 4x Qasali Pridemage, and 4x Lightning Greaves, 4x Loam Lion, 4x Pride Sovereign, 1x more Fleecemane Lion, and 4x Swiftfoot Boots

Wizrds does their best to keep the market stable, that's all. Some cards rise and fall but as long as there are generally a high number of worthless cards and then a good curve of total cards worth $1, $2, $3, each value with a slightly decreasing total of cards worth that much, the market remains fairly stable. It's just all about what is in demand based on the meta of all formats. Obviously they can use reprints to deflate some cards slightly and profit from this at the same time (such as Snapcaster Mage, Khans fetches, etc.) but they will also purposefully not reprint some cards that could easily be just for the sake of keeping their value increasing to the point that they like (such as the Shadowmoor filters, Horizon Canopy, etc.)

Title says it all! I have LP Horizon Canopy.
ONLY willing to trade it for the rest of my standard deck. I know it's very specific but I'm not very willing to part with it. So here is what I need.
2x Fatal Push

I've been playing Bant CoCo/Knightfall for a while, and I can tell you that you want more bang for your buck in a deck like this. Rhox War Monk seems great, but really falls short in most decks since it just ends up being a beater. A better life-regen option is adding 1 more Courser of Kruphix, which is more consistent with it's life-regen and gives you unexpected utility.
As for Geist of Saint Traft, it's best not to run more than 2 copies, 1 preferred. It being legendary makes it awkward especially in a CoCo deck and it's also just a beater. Good replacements are more Voice of Resurgences (likely just 1 more), Vendilion Clique (depending on your budget), or more mana dorks (which are incredibly necessary in a CoCo deck because of the 3CMC majority and because you're also running Thalia, Guardian of Thraben.
Also consider adding:
Horizon Canopy (if it's too expensive, I understand)
Misty Rainforest (try going closer to 9 or 10 fetches) (also the price thing)
1 more Path to Exile
And consider removing or moving to the sideboard:
Also, I enjoy this card: Ramunap Excavator
Most decks don't run it though.
I understand if you're trying to make a 'variant' of the deck, I'm just giving options to make it more consistent which is the key to this type of deck. Otherwise, I enjoy your originality!

This is probably a budget issue, but Noble Hierarch instead of Birds of Paradise is an easy upgrade. Horizon Canopy is also good in this deck. I still think Abzan Falconer is a better target for Evolution/Company, or just to cast naturally, than Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Mayor of Avabruck Flip is also a good Human lord who you don't mind flipping either. It is tough playing Modern with zero interaction so the Cloudshift should really be Path to Exile at least.

The first thing that needs to be done is cutting out some of the creatures with high mana costs and still die to Lightning Bolt. A creature has to do something amazing in order to justify costing more than 1 mana and having under 3 toughness. Dark Confidant, Arcbound Ravager, and Vendilion Clique fit these criteria. Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Consul's Lieutenant, and Heron's Grace Champion do not. Getting your creatures to survive to the combat phase when they get hit by Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push is a serious issue.
I'd also move away from anything costing more than 3 mana unless it flat-out ends the game when you play it. Surrak, the Hunt Caller sort of fits this criteria, because he's going to come down and give himself haste right away, allowing you to push in for those last few points of damage. I'm not convinced the same is true for Thalia's Lancers or Sigarda, Heron's Grace (although Sigarda, Heron's Grace is probably a prime candidate for the sideboard).
You're also an aggro deck. You can't afford to lose time because your land on turn 1 came into play tapped. Play basics over Evolving Wilds and Blossoming Sands. Sunpetal Grove and Canopy Vista are other good budget options. Windswept Heath, Temple Garden, Flagstones of Trokair, and Horizon Canopy are powerhouses if you're not on a budget. Lands going into the graveyard also means Knight of the Reliquary is viable.
Gavony Township should be played in your list in multiples. 2 would probably be good. You want to see them each game but you don't have any mana dorks (namely, Noble Hierarch) to allow you to play more than 2.
You should also be playing Honor of the Pure. All of your creatures are white and this puts them over the edge. Combined with Gavony Township, you shouldn't need Collective Effort. These two in combination are cheaper and make your team more consistently large.
So what are the replacement options for all of this?
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is one of the first things you'll want to include. Her taxing effect makes sure your opponents are off tempo in casting their removal or win conditions. Storm basically can't win so long as Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is on the table.
Mirran Crusader is a powerhouse. Immune to Abrupt Decay, Fatal Push, eats Tarmogoyfs, etc. Probably the scariest thing you can do is follow up a turn 2 Honor of the Pure with a Mirran Crusader. If your meta doesn't have a whole lot of green or black, Blade Splicer is another good option for your 3-drop slot.
Hero of Bladehold will quickly end the game and is a a great card to play at the top of your curve. Ranger of Eos is another option. Either card will quickly flood the board and benefit from Honor of the Pure/Gavony Township.
Thalia, Heretic Cathar is absolute hell to try and deal with in Modern. A lot of people are playing fetches and shocks in their mana bases with only enough basics to dodge Ghost Quarter and Blood Moon. Combined with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, your opponents' mana bases will be so strained they may never cast anything after turn 3.
Lastly, there's your maindeck hatecrap that comes from playing G/W Humans. Grand Abolisher, Ethersworn Canonist, True Believer, Imposing Sovereign, and Fiend Hunter will steal games out from under the right opponents.
All of this hinges on you playing Honor of the Pure or sticking with only humans. If you don't run Honor of the Pure, Experiment One, Mayor of Avabruck Flip, and Noble Hierarch are powerful alternatives (you may want to still include some of these anyway, especially Experiment One).
You can also move away from humans and more into G/W Little Kid. You get more hatecrap (Leonin Arbiter, Qasali Pridemage, Scavenging Ooze, Voice of Resurgence, Aven Mindcensor, Gaddock Teeg), more beatsticks (Loxodon Smiter, Wilt-Leaf Liege, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Thrun, the Last Troll), and mana dorks.
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Collected Company. It can be a little underwhelming, however, unless your deck is filled with silver bullets and singletons. You're looking more to go wide and attack as fast as possible. It will completely change the dynamics of your deck and how you play it.
As TMBRLZ, however, you really haven't provided much information. It's hard to tell you specifically what to add or cut from your deck (like is Hero of Bladehold to expensive for your budget? Sword of Fire and Ice?) other than just by glancing over it.
What's your budget? Who will you be playing against? Do you want this deck to remain strictly G/W? Strictly humans? What's the local meta? Is it a bunch of Zooicide players or U/W/x Control players? Or is it 1 guy with a $2,000 Rock deck and a bunch of people with Standard decks? Is this something you want to play for the rest of your Magic career or are you only looking at something to jump into Modern with? Do you plan on playing Legacy or Vintage and this is a deck you'd like to use help ease into older formats?
None of these questions have really been answered and so we're kind of left giving vague card suggestions/descriptions, instead of something like "Cut 3 copies of X and replace them with 2 copies of Y and 1 copy of Z."

If you really want to go Soldiers with a sub-theme of tokens (which makes the deck more resilient), you could play Doomed Traveler and Hero of Bladehold and Thalia's Lieutenant, in addition to what you already have. I'd cut Elite Inquisitor entirely and tweak the numbers of the other creatures slightly. The rest of the deck looks fine. I'd play 4 copies of Horizon Canopy for the draw ability.

I don't know, Cavern of Souls seems better for tribal, which I love a lot. Horizon Canopy's card draw is insane, and though Ghost Quarter is useful, if Strip Mine was legal, we know who would win. I would order it like this:
Cavern of Souls (For Tribal #2)
Eiganjo Castle (Mono White no tribal #2)
If you can guarantee that 5% of games will be won because of having it on the field, and if I go through ~20 cards a game, then if I put four Mutavaults in, I have 20% less colored mana (20 lands), for the game. I understand that this deck has a fair few pieces of half colored/half colorless items, but I from now much more extensive testing (50-60+) games, I find having a hand filled with 1-drops, and a useless Mutavault that I drop down, and have one other Plains, meaning I get out 1 creature or spell a turn cycle is much more common than you would think. I said that if you get two, it is a game over, but that is because if you get one, it already hurts. You don't need to get that unlucky for it to go south (0.4% you said).
