Steadfast Guard Discussion

With your limited card pool, I would suggest sticking to mono white weenies. This means cutting your big creatures (I would say anything over 4 cmc), and just sticking with the small creatures that are low to the ground. This strategy utilizes a "go wide" approach where you simply spit out too many creatures for your opponent to block. Things with flying are also very good with this strategy as once your opponent has creatures, they still might have difficulty blocking the ones with flying. The artifacts can also go. Artifacts generally cost a lot of tempo to both play and then equip. It is usually better to just play another creature. I would also consider adding the following cards from your collection: Bygone Bishop, Fiend Hunter, Bonds of Faith (acts as a pump if you need it, or pseudo-removal if you need it), Doomed Traveler, Steadfast Guard, Inspiring Captain, Steadfast Cathar, Kor Scythemaster, Kor Castigator, Mardu Hordechief, Fiend Binder, Elder Cathar, Dauntless Cathar, Cliffside Lookout, Nearheath Chaplain, Courageous Outrider, Sanctifier of Souls, Retreat to Emeria, Chapel Geist, Kor Bladewhirl. Serra Angel can be a good top end finisher. Most things with flying, produce tokens, and/or pump all creatures are good additions to a weenie deck.
I would up your lands count to 22, and I would try to have about seven 1-drops, about fifteen 2-drops, about twelve 3 drops, about five 4/5-drops. 22 lands will mean that you will hit your third land drop on turn 3 90% of the time when you are on the draw, and 85% of the time on the play. I would aim to have about 28-30 creatures creatures, and about 8-10 instants/sorceries/enchantments. This gets you to exactly 60 cards -- which is important. I could get into a lengthy mathematical explanation into why 60 cards is always the best -- but it essentially boils down to increasing the chances of drawing your best cards when you need them. It increases the consistency of the deck.
