+1! love the deck!

Consider Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip

I think him Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, and cards like Elite Vanguard deal out more damage in an average game than Student of Warfare for the amount of mana efficiency they entail. Student of Warfare is good in a deck that as a lot of mana left over at the end of turns, generally white weenie lists are not those decks, unless they are Aether Vial lists. I may be mistaken, as you are the deck builder, I am not, but that is my advice.

I'll probably post up a list for this here in the near future! Thanks so much for the reply!

Why do you not run Soldier of the Pantheon, Dryad Militant, or Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip?

Lowering the average cost of the deck will most likely streamline it.

Consider Brave the Elements, so your team can swing unblocked, or survive a Pyroclasm, and also Swords to Plowshares to topple threats.

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip could be a good inclusion as well as Mikaeus, the Lunarch. I would also probably throw in a Brimaz, King of Oreskos if you're looking to add more tokens.

For more nonsoldier utility creatures I would definitely look into a Grand Abolisher,Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite,Mirror Entity and Crovax, Ascendant Hero

I feel like Dryad Militant might be able to pad up that UR Storm matchup a bit.

Yeah, here's my Soul-Monument deck list, if you want to have a look. I haven't tested it yet, really.

It might not even need the life gain aspect, honestly, lol. Maybe my list would be better off running 3x Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip and 4x Dryad Militant instead of the Sisters. Let me know what you think?

Looks like it could use some one drops and more utility/removal type cards.

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip could work well with a creature heavy strategy. Student of Warfare is another I might consider. Dryad Militant also mostly for the stats. Doomed Traveler is solid too.

Honestly, I feel the eldrazi temple is difficult to run with so many cards requiring specific colors. Tidehollow Sculler could be hard to cast with this mana pool.

Could help to run some more removal too. The obvious pick would be Fatal Push.

Alright! So some suggestions in card's I have for you. Although I dont run a human Tribal selesnya deck, My karametra deck is pretty damn good and is my 'dont piss me off or i'll whip this deck out and kick your ass to Uranus' deck. LOL So since humans are REALLY small bodies Dusk // Dawn is a 100% auto include! Knight of the Reliquary is great and since we're in white You'll want to grab a Mistveil Plains and an Emeria, The Sky Ruin and/or Gavony Township it searches for ANY land, can be great if you have a Yavimaya Hollow. Austere Command EVERY white deck should have this, period. It deals with anything and everything! since you don't have a whole lot of instants/sorceries, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is great here, although one mana does not seem like a lot. it makes the difference between a turn 4 Damnation and a turn 5 Damnation which will give you more value from you're creatures. I think Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip would be great here his planeswalker ability basically gives you a permanent creature you want to survive basically anything! Also NO human deck is a human deck without their protector Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Elspeth, Sun's Champion this elspeth is great! for six mana to remove problem creatures is not bad! the other 2 elspeths are also just as good, and even if they die, it's worth the value! And instead of some of your anthem effects on creatures, I've found that anthems on enchantments/artifacts last longer and provide more support Spear of Heliod is phenomenal, it's kinda pillow-forty because you can kill their creature and gives an anthem all for 3 (6 if you use it's ability). its a great investment! Basically you really want to out-value your opponent! Also another good edition would be Homeward Path since you're having issue's with that darn pirate! Also, Tamiyo's Journal is actually REALLY underrated, I suggest you at least try it and you'll see how much work it really does!
