That's effin' hilarious! I will try it and see the guys face turn purple. Fantastic fattie removal for 3 mana. Priceless.

Ever consider Collective Blessing ? With 26 creatures, and it being late game, it could be just what you need if the game goes longer than wanted and you start running out of steam.

It would be particularly good against b/r since they have no enchantment removal, and you're both aggro. So once you play that, you immediately have a much better board position. Maybe just sideboard material though.

Sublime is incredible. She is so much more than a +1 boost. Giving each creature exalted and swinging one turn for kill is much more insane than jubilation. She's good sidedeck imo. Against specific sac cards... Sublime is a major threat, so using iubilatipn is cool cuz no one will remove her! Lol

"Silverblade Paladin . Is probably what the whole thing is built around on."
What about a couple of Ajani, Caller of the Pride ? Can give you the Double Strike as well and +1/+1 counters on creatures who can really use it like Fencing Ace or War Falcon (which you say wins you 3 out of 5 games).

I would love to drop down a heavy +3/+3 Collective Blessing hammer but I fear it might be too mana exhaustive for this deck. I've always wanted to play the short and fast game especially with other aggro/beat downs but I will give it the benefit of the doubt and try a few games with it.
Thanks for the insight. I like the idea of them not thinking Angel of Jubilation as a threat, unfortunately once they get to see what she does the Murder s come out. They quickly realize she gives immediate presence once she hits the board not only on the offence and defense but she also slows down the game due to the shocklands being less effective, something I account for but usually takes my opponents by surprise. Also with the million saccing mechanisms out there she is a way for them to stop having life or card advantage. Its also not uncommon for me to have 2 of her cast and have my insta boost go up to +2 for all!
I have the deck working extremely well but did find that the 1 slot was a little too crowded. Ideally though it should be a T1 card:Avacyn's Pilgrim rather than an Arbor Elf . The extra G mana was nice but not really vital as my land base is sufficient, so I decided to see if Ajani, Caller of the Pride will give me an added depth to the deck. Thanks for the suggestion.

Simpler than Avacyn you should consider Rootborn Defenses
I also used War falcon in my white deck, it's a very strong card in the early game! Angel of jubilation is also in my white standard deck!
happy to see another deck looking like mine and being effective because I almost always play my Selesnya deck so I don't know how the white human would do!

I playtested this deck and the only complaint I have is your lands. YOU DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH OF THEM. I was mana-screwed for about 3 games in a row. It's weird because you have 22. Maybe I just have bad luck.

While I had considered and even included Farseek in the past, currently I will leave it out as I found that the dorks are there mainly for speed ( my meta is full of fast B/R zom-vamps or selesnyan tempo-aggro). I regularly found success finishing my games in less than 7 turns (usually by 5) only needing 4-5 mana . The top CMC in this build is 5 with the Wolfir Silverheart which I would love to use more regularly but usually unnecessary for the finish . I actually found that sometimes my 1st drop is a falcon rather than a dork. Unless I find that I am not getting great results due to dork removal I will reconsider Farseek . Thanks for your comment.
I have been flirting with both Rootborn Defenses and Safe Passage for some time now but have had tremendous jawdropping luck in my FNMs with Entreat the Angels for decks that I know have clear board wipes. I will be playtesting with the idea though.. thanks.
That is really odd. With the 22 lands, the dorks and a low average CMC of 2.08 its really hard to be land screwed with this built. Ive certainly not experienced it as of yet otherwise I would have remedied it immediately. I actually remembered the deck having Arbor Elf and Farseek before and I had to cut those off because they were a bit much.Maybe its just rotten luck. But if your usernames meaning is what I think it is I wouldnt be surprised.
Thank you for all the +1s and everyone that has commented on the build. I absolutely appreciate it and have seriously Ponder ed about them and considered why it may or may not be viable for this build. I would love to have played in all previous FNMs to test it out more with real competitive decks but alas a working man has to put food in the table. The ones I have attended though Ive had tremendous success and even placed in quite a few. I still think I need further familiarity with dealing with other build types. Keep the suggestions coming please

Speaking of birds and wolves... Fable of Wolf and Owl .
Haha anyways, +1 for the originality if for nothing else. Nice work.
