I would remove some of the cards that are single use or don't trigger very often like Thraben Inspector, Emissary of Sunrise, Razor Golem, Mercadian Atlas, Paradise Plume, and maybe a land or two to add Buried Ruin, Sun Titan, Silent Arbiter, Steelshaper's Gift, Myriad Landscape, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, and Balan, Wandering Knight.

Inspector is probably best white card ever printed with cmc = 1. After Mother of runes ofc. :)

The same way I can ask you why you need to play more blue cards? Mulldrifter is enough (and maybe some hydroblast in side). In the other hand scroll looks pretty bad here, cause you will get only sometimes this cantrip, so most of the times this will be only card for gaining 5 life. Bad huh? Especially 4x. Maybe if you want to play this scroll - you can add Trinket Mage, so you can save lot of space - can add Sylvok Lifestaff, Relic of Progenitus, Dispeller's Capsule (side), Viridian Longbow (side). Or play more aggro-mage version with Court Homunculus.

And even if you stay mono W:

The thing with Razor Golem is that i only have 14 plains, making it a bit too inconsistent for my taste, if it would benefit from Ancient Den it'd be an auto-include though

What about Razor Golem? it rarely is a dead draw, and is very valueable as a creature. doesn't die to Lightning Bolt, unsummon effects do nearly nothing against him... maybe it is worth a try.

Well, this is enterily too much do-nothing and a case of not having enough of anything.

You have exactly 4 sources of card draw which is ninja, which will never hit a vigilant opponent (rhystic study just says "your opponents spells cost 1 more" instead of its actual text).

15 of your lands are CIPT, which makes the deck incredibly slow.

White is entirely unnecessary - the mana enchantments can just be 2 mana kill spells in black, while 2 safe passage will hardly ever be worth it when you have more than a dozen removal spells. Razor Golem is a terrible top end that is just an average sized body with vigilance in the world of Gurmag Anglers, that will never cost less than 3 mana.

Overall, the deck will get rid of every creature the opponent has, but will not do much else. IMO, you have to cut white and focus more on providing reliable card advantage with an engine (like Trinket Mage and a toolbox for it, or Mystical Teachings) and solid way to finish the game (Peregrine Drake combo, Evincar's Justice and 2xPristine Talisman), while having actual card draw spells (Think Twice, Accumulated Knowledge)

A terrible version of White weenies. Way too dependant on A+B strategy (heroic + a spell that targets it), which tends to not be a very good idea.

Start like this:

19 Plains and 1 Secluded Steppe.

3 Guardian of the Guildpact - this guy has protection from pauper written all over him.
4 Benevolent Bodyguard
3 Shade of Trokair
4 Icatian Javelineers
4 Kor Skyfisher
4 Battle Screech - common online, uncommon offline. replace with 4 War Falcon if a problem and/or it is too expensive.
4 Loyal Cathar  Flip
3 Prismatic Strands
4 Razor Golem
3 Guardians' Pledge
4 Raise the Alarm

This is a top-tier White weenie list.

Let me indulge you in a secret: In Limited 1/1 flier for 1 mana is not worth the card to be included in most decks. That problem is even more pronounced in Constructed.

Your deck as is, including Doomed traveler, has 20 1/1s fliers for 1 mana. So, starting out, you are playing less of a deck than any opponent.

So, how to abate this issue? Why, efficiency is the mother of all aggro decks. In pauper that will mean:

Cut the above 20 cards and include 1 more squadron hawk, plus 2 secluded steppe and 1 of each journey and oring. That leaves us with 23 cards to go.

4 Razor Golem - efficient beater

4 Benevolent Bodyguard - great card with too many applications.

4 Icatian Javelineers - quite valuable effect in white.

2 Prismatic Strands - one-sided Fog with a free flashback? counter to mass removal in white? sign me up

3 Shade of Trokair - mana sink and great t1 play.

4 Guardian of the Guildpact - has the ability "protection from the pauper format". Equip with bonesplitter for best results.

2 Guardians' Pledge - instant ramen, I mean anthem effect is usually a blow out.
