Sky Hussar Discussion

Obviously, not all of those belong in the same deck.

So white is a pretty under-powered color in both modern and pioneer and I want to build a deck focusing on white cards for either of those formats, likely modern, and would like card and/or strategy suggestions.
Here's a list of cards I'm thinking about to get started, I just really don't know how to fit them together: Porphyry Nodes , Flagstones of Trokair , Recruit the Worthy , Sky Hussar , Squadron Hawk , Battle Screech , Legion's Landing Flip, Gift of Estates , Restore Balance , Generous Gift
Edit: I know the meta decks for white (D&T, Soul Sisters, Martyr Proc) and want to find a new W or Wx deck that uses weird mechanics and synergies specific to white in a semi-competitive way.

I always love that Sky Hussar for these decks. Worst case, you cast it.
But usually tapping down Familiars and Whatever weak Faerie you got. Buries in CA.
How about Squawk?

Don't know if it's your style but I really like Sky Hussar , for both card draw and untap trigger.

I also wanted to comment on the choice for Hour of Need. Essentially the card is a 4/4 flyer with flash for 3 mana and the additional cost of exiling a creature. Way back in the day Sea Drake was a thing in Legacy because of its aggressive cost. Since then they have printed a few other 4/4 flyers (IE, Illusory Angel) but this one is the best IMHO. Hour of Need accelerates Angy Bird's clock (which was something it originally struggled with in older builds) and allows for some combat trickery. The ability to play it on the opponent's turn means you're often forcing the opponent to lose one of their attacking creatures as well. Instant speed also means we can hold mana open to cast other cards based on the opponent's turn. And because Angry Birds generates so much card advantage and also a lot of expendable creatures, the cost of exiling a creature is typically pretty minimal--especially since Hour of Need is only a 2x of.
The fact that Hour of Need can actually generate 2x 4/4 flyers at instant speed in the late game and can double as really bad removal in really dire situations is just gravy. In my experience Hour of Need has been the card that has changed the tides of an otherwise losing game.
That said, I think a great argument can also be made for Spell Queller in the 3-drop slot. The great thing about Angry Birds are that we have several viable cards in the 2-drop and 3-drop slots to build the deck to the player's tastes and meta.
Since Sky Hussar is not typically a card I cast (but mainly make use of its forecast ability for card advantage, I felt that 3x was the right amount over 4x. Again, it could be a matter of taste but it really is a card I want to see in game but not in multiples. On the other hand, Judge's Familiar is a fantastic card that deserves to be a 4-of IMHO because of its excellent value. Having 4 of it and 3 Mother of Runes pretty much ensures we have a strong turn one play.

Also I'm curious about the idea behind Hour of Need.
I'm asking all this because I'm trying to build an angry birds list myself, and thus am looking for any additional advise I can get (your primer was an amazing help though :))
