Thraben Inspector Discussion

My first modern deck how Humanity works. by using raging aggro by putting stuff like Thraben Inspector , Boros Elite and buff them with stuff like Coat of Arms or Honor of the Pure could be good late-game buffs.
Removals- In this case, there will be no stuff like Path to Exile because it's kinda budget so I've have decided to put stuff like Fiend Hunter , Banisher Priest or fast spell-like Celestial Purge , Seal Away , Sunlance etc.
Mana ramp- Since this an aggro deck so it should include too much mana ramp for the help, But this case for sparing I've have decided to include Talisman of Hierarchy , Pillar of Origins for an emergency.

There's not really much in the way of mana ramp for white outside Tron lands or Mox stuff, so I do suggest running a full set of Ballyrush Banneret . Typically, as tempting as 4+ CMC mono-white spells are, they're pretty much unplayable in Modern. Try to get your AVG CMC to 2 or less and only include maybe 4 spells at 4-5CMC, and those should preferably be creatures so you can take advantage of Ballyrush.
Great all-around mono-white spells: Brave the Elements , Path to Exile , Return to the Ranks / Immortal Servitude , Oblivion Ring / Journey to Nowhere , Oppressive Rays , Honor of the Pure , Thraben Inspector , Knight of the White Orchid .
I'm not seeing any reason to run Snow-Covered Plains. On Thin Ice would take advantage of them.

Faith's Shield is certainly interesting I will have to look into that. Thraben Inspector also might be useful, but this deck usually doesn't get a lot of mana and it may prove to slow. However I will certainly look into it.

I've also considered Thraben Inspector as a possible candidate for draw-card, in the event you want more or another option.
I'm also a pretty big fan of Faith's Shield in the single-target protection category because it works on all permanents and for the potentially amazing Fateful Hour added range, which is particularly useful vs similarly fast Burn decks when one turn can be the difference between a win and a loss.

There were a bunch of traditional Tempered Steel budget affinity lists that are worth a look.
The main trick to budget lists is to plan for your local meta and play to that- don't be scared to maindeck sideboard tools to get more slots.

I'm liking the feel of the deck so far.
It's hard for me to picture how the deck will play because there are so many possible interactions. By the looks of it, the deck falls most under the archetype of Tempo although there are definite flavors of Tokens and Control. As such, I think my favorite card you have in the deck is Reflector Mage , and I think running 4 of them would be pretty good.
I'm not sure how I feel about your top end. I'm not saying I dislike it, I just have a question mark on it... Lavinia of the Tenth would be great against an Aggro deck, but not as good against Stompy. I do like the idea of cheating out Akromas, though.
I'm wondering if Thraben Inspector is worth its slot if this deck will be used for 1v1. Something with more front end value, i.e. Wall of Omens or even just a scry like from Wall of Runes might set you up better in the early game--since I'm picturing you wanting to use all your mana most turns to cast flicker spells/creatures instead of paying the 2 to cash in clues. I may be off on this forecast though, and that's okay. I'm just trying to share some thoughts.

Actually, this version isn't bad, but it isn't good either. I would suggest something like Thraben Inspector for better card draw (and it survives against Electrickery without buff effects). Well, also, you can try using Squadron Hawk or Battle Screech , because it is really a good value. But still, Mono-W isn't best color(because it hasn't much answers to big threats). And yes, add Relic of Progenitus in sideboard. It would help
