A very nice Deck... I've played against it on Cockatrice a few hours with an W/u Humans Aggro Deck and was losing very often. I could only manage to win with a perfect Draw or a lot of detaining his pumped up threats. Thalia slowed him down a bit, but generaly he was very fast. The few Games which I won was mostly with Flyers he couldn't handle. I also played a few games with an RDW against it which was doing a little bit better because I could burn awy his threats. Overall very aggressive and fast... as long as people don't start putting Paraselene in their Sideboard ...

Your deck did very well again in the online Testing rounds we did +++
As discussed I'm gonna run this for some Test Games at our shop on friday before drafting starts...

What do you think about going up to 22 Lands? Maybe adding a card:Rogue's Passage which doesn't really hurt together with Abundant Growth ... It could push through if the game might be taking longer...
I like the card:Faith's Shield they're needed against Sweepers and Burn Heavy Decks. Also they could help getting the damage in... I would suggest to increase the number.
My 15 would look like this...
4 card:Faith's Shield

I hadn't considered card:Rogue's Passage, but I am hesitant to add another land. To fit it in I would have to get rid of a creature, and since we're absolutely dependent on having one for our enchantments I don't know if it's worth the risk. We're down to 18 creatures after adding Ajani, and going to 17 can be quite noticeable. Replacing a colored land is out of the question. It really does hurt the manabase with all the double costs in the deck. When I playtested with Gavony Township I would almost never want to draw it as one of my first three lands because of the double costs. Which given that we want to end the game in turn 4-6 is a large portion of the game.
I've tested with card:Faith's Shield a bit today, and I agree that it's awesome as a sideboard card, though I don't think I'll include more than 3 of them. Again, because I don't want to be sitting on more than 1 at a time.
