Invoke the Divine Discussion

Helm of the Host. You're right, it's very expensive. But the cost is lowered using Danitha Capashen, Paragon for lowering the cost. If I can't get the required mana or don't have enough to spare, I can always Invoke the Divine it for more life.
Thanks for the feedback,

Here are some other considerations for your sideboard. They're not necessarily better than what you already have. Ceremonious Rejection can counter Karn, Scion of Urza, Walking Ballista and Heart of Kiran. Forsake the Worldly, Invoke the Divine, and Thopter Arrest all hit Heart of Kiran. Hour of Devastation is cool because it hits creatures and planes walkers.

Argy What did you mean about not being allowed to ID at FNM level? Don't the MtG Tournament Rules allow you to draw at any sanctioned tournament (which any FNM should be)?
x12721 I had to think for a bit before I worked out what seemed off about your deck. Then I realised that you have no sweepers in the mainboard. I highly reccomend some number of sweepers. Probably 3-4 main and then none side (2 Fumigate and 1-2 Settle the Wreckage ). The reason for this is that control decks which go 1-for-1 with opponents (as your deck does) fold to decks which make lots of creatures. That's why I played grixis instead of UB last season - it had a better matchup against the aggro and token decks.
If you add sweepers to the main, I would probably move at least 1, maybe both Vona's Hunger to the side, or maybe cut one altogether because 2 seems a little clunky to me. I also think that Dovin Baan is poor in general, and isn't particularly strong in this deck more than otherwise.
Finally, I think your sideboard is a little sub-par. You should definitely have 2 Authority of the Consuls and some number of either Regal Caracal or Lyra Dawnbringer. Given that the meta has adjusted to Lyra, I would suggest Caracals. I don't think you really need 2 Nezahal, Primal Tide. They are a house against control, but you also need to run enough denial still.
Unwind is a cool spell, but I don't think you need it as well as the 3 Negate. Probably play another copy of Duress though, because it's arguably the most impactful card against control. I would also recommend a Sorcerous Spyglass because it is amazing. You also probably need some number of disenchant effects, so either Invoke the Divine or Forsake the Worldly.
Finally, other sideboard cards include Doomfall, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Lost Legacy if you are worried about Approach (although I think it is less necessary at the moment), and Arguel's Blood Fast which is great.
I know that I have suggested a lot of sideboard cards (more than you have room for), so sorry for that. I basically took the most impactful cards from my UW and Grixis sideboards and suggested them.
Also, sorry for the really long post, I didn't originally intend it to be this long. Also sorry if it sounds like I don't think your deck is good, that isn't the case. I just think it needs a little tweaking.

Looks good! Only thing I recommend is moving the Invoke the Divine to the sideboard, take out Eviscerate for better removal. Better removal in my opinion would be Seal Away, Cast Down, Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt. Also since your curve tops out at 5 I'd add a land or two, Concealed Courtyard is great for this deck. Stay honorable good sir!

I think it's great you're trying to build a deck full of sweepers, but I think you need the rest of your cards to follow this plan to have a coherent deck. And because you want these expensive spells to happen, up your land count to 25.
Angel of Invention - doesn't fit.Firesong and Sunspeaker - the theme, so of course.Ghitu Chronicler - dies to Sweltering Suns, but I guess it's a way to rebuy one of these later? Ghitu Lavarunner - no. Lyra Dawnbringer - could be okay. Neheb, the Eternal - MORE, it survives your sweepers. Rekindling Phoenix - yes absolutely.Sacred Cat - rebuys, why not. Shalai, Voice of Plenty - doesn't really fit. Teshar, Ancestors Apostle - why? how often will you use this?
And if you're up for it: Jaya Ballard.

I have been play testing this deck and I love it. But I need to say this and I am going to say it bluntly. The land base sucks and I don't like the transformative sideboard. In the build that I have been testing I have cut the Evolving Wilds, one Yahenni, Undying Partisan and one Search for Azcanta Flip for lands. Since white is basically a splash color I have been favoring the B/U dual lands. I added 3 Fetid Pools, 2 Irrigated Farmland, 1 Field of Ruin and 1 Concealed Courtyard and also changed the check-lands to 4 Drowned Catacomb, 2 Glacial Fortress and 1 Isolated Chapel.
As for the sideboard I have found 1 Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage and 2 Kambal, Consul of Allocation and invaluable against control. Sorcerous Spyglass and 2 Vraska's Contempt and good for The Scarab God decks. Finally I have been playing 2 Spell Pierce, 2 Seal Away and 3 Invoke the Divine which are generally useful. There are 2 flex slots left that I am still figuring out.
I am curious to know what you think.

This looks pretty sweet! I do have a few suggestions. I think you might have a tad to little non creature interaction.
Of all those suggestions the one I think would be best is Orazca Relic.
