Question: are you trying to build budget? Because Path to Exile is much better than Rebuke, and Cavern of Souls is a must for all tribal decks. Imposing Sovereign isn't exactly a modern card, at least not as a 4 of. I would consider playing a set of Aether Vial as well. Vial is pretty hard to say no to. Another card I would add is maybe two Ranger of Eos, as a way to refuel. Another good card, but for the sideboard, is Brave the Elements.

Pretty unfocused. If I were you, I would cut Attendant for 4 Grand Abolishers. I'd also add 1 more Thalia's Lieutenant, as well as 1 to 2 Imposing Sovereign in the place of your Precinct Captains. Increasing Devotion is waaaaay too much mana for what it does. Replace it with Brave the Elements. Replace Rebuke with Path to Exile. Cut two Ranger of Eos and replace with a one- or two-drop, something like Student of Warfare that's a more reliable mana sink. Also, maybe a couple of Mana Tithe and some Wrath of God in the board.

I personalty am a fan of tight deck lists "4 of". I do not like lowering the statistical chance of getting what I want to happen. With that in mind here are a few solid ideas, and a spicy one. Enjoy
If adding Board wipes or pseudo ones, I would add Selfless Spirit
Cavern of Souls is a dead card if your local group doesn't play a lot of disruption. You know your local meta better than we do!

Just an idea.. Launch the Fleet?
I had a simmilar deck but a ran 4 Phalanx Leader and some more instant's. Heroic soldier are always good in a deck you have.It worked pretty well.

That's not your real sideboard, I hope? The sideboard is not for you to include cards that you wanted to squeeze into your maindeck but couldn't. You will need specific answers in there against other decks, like Stony Silence and Rest in Peace, etc.

btw, I would suggest cutting that one copy of Increasing Devotion. It's a bit random and it seems tough for your deck to hit 5 mana anyway. You may also want to play 4 Flagstones of Trokair and 4 Ghost Quarters to thin your deck. A perfect one-drop for you is Doomed Traveler, since he leaves behind a 1/1 flyer. You probably want to play a full 4 Honor of the Pure as well.

I noticed that you had Imposing Sovereign in your deck. If you like that concept, consider Authority of the Consuls. I personally don't think it's an overly powerful ability (still very good though!), but it's quite potent versus haste/token decks as well as in tabletop multiplayer. And, of course, passive life-gain is always nice. :)

If your meta has a lot of cheap removal, Knight of the Holy Nimbus has worked really well for me in my own mono-white humans deck.

As someone who built a competitive humans deck in the past, I'd say this has a good start, but needs some more oomph to get there, so +1.
Accorder Paladin is probably the most aggressive human you could play for 2 mana, as being a 3/1 alone is already strong, but the fact that this card can give battlecry can make it insane with something like Silverblade Paladin.
Increasing Devotion & Ranger of Eos, while they may be solid cards in other white decks, you really want to be aggressive in these decks, so I'd cut them. I'd reccomend upping your Honor of the Pure and Gather the Townsfolk, as they will make this deck far stronger and more consistent.
You should be playing 19-20 lands, espeically if your curve stops at 3 cmc, I'd recommend moving Kytheon to the main, as well as getting path to 4 count.
If you want to look at something to upgrade this and/or look for help, here's a list I made for a friend a while back.

Hi, Thanks everyone for all the good suggestions. You have made my deck better and better. You all suggested good cards that I would have put in, but I don't know which cards for them to replace. If you could suggest some that would be great.

I think this deck would benefit a lot from more 1-drops. Modern is a format where, if you want to be aggressive, you really need to be spending as much of your mana as possible in the first 3 or 4 turns; with your current deck configuration you run a high risk of being flooded on 2-drops and doing nothing on turn 1, then playing a 2-drop on turn 2, another one on turn 3 and then finally, if you've hit all of your land drops, playing two cards on turn 4, which is a pattern that's unlikely to be fast enough. I would move the Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip to the main (although maybe only 2; you really don't ever want to be in a situation where you draw multiple of a legendary creature and have one stuck in your hand) and consider Thraben Inspector, Mardu Woe-Reaper and/or Soldier of the Pantheon.
I would ditch the Elite Inquisitors, unless you know for sure that the protections are going to be very relevant in your meta-game; it seems like it's just going to be a 2/2 first strike, vigilance a lot of the time and while that's not bad, I don't think it's good enough to justify the slot.
I also don't think you need a whole playset of Grand Abolishers maindeck; they're not especially good in multiples and there are a lot of decks in Modern that the Abolisher's ability does nothing to. Again, unless you already know that you're going to be facing a lot of decks that rely on casting and activating things on your turn, I would reduce their number and consider just moving them entirely to the sideboard.
