Avacyn's Pilgrim x4 - My one and only accelerant in the deck. This little guy can launch me into turn two Loxodon Smites and Silverblade Paladins, and further into turn three Sublime Archangels. While it is a somewhat poor topdeck in the lategame, as all mana-dorks are, he’s also a human, making him someone feasible in terms of late-game board position progression.
Champion of the Parish x4 - My other one drop, alongside Avacyn’s Pilgrim. This guy can grow big, really fast, although his primary purpose is actually to slow down the opponent. He works well as a nice beefstick to throw down in the early game; one who will scale with your opponents board, assuming ok draws.
Mayor of Avabruck x4 - I’ve won many games on the back of this guy alone. Him flipping into Howlpack Alpha puts the opponent on a relatively quick clock on his own. Take into account his synergy with Gavony Township and the humans within the deck, he becomes that much more intimidating.
Nearheath Pilgrim x3 - One of my favorite cards against the aggressive matchup, he alone has the ability to turn a game completely around. If I can get this guy bound to anything that’s a 3/3 or higher, it’s essentially game over.
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben x3 - Thalia is my saving grace against Esper Control - my least favorable matchup, next to The Aristocrats. Putting Supreme Verdict, Farseek, or spot removal a turn back is usually all I need to win the race.
Loxodon Smiter x4 - While not a human, he’s still a 4/4 for 3 who can’t be countered, or discarded from my hand. Works wonders against Liliana of the Veil, and again, gains me ground in the control matchup. Commonly bound to Silverblade (hopefully, with a Rancor) to deal massive damage (as much as 12 turn three.)
Silverblade Paladin x4 - This guy is what really makes my deck tick. He can swing through himself, bind with Nearheath Pilgrim, turn a loxodon smiter into more of a powerhouse than he already is, or make Sublime Archangel absolutely devastating. Rancor works wonders with this guy, as does any form of pump.
Sublime Archangel x4 - One of the most underrated cards currently in Standard. Turn three Sublime is nothing to turn your nose up at, and having her bound with Silverblade Paladin commonly means it’s game over.
Rancor x4 - Double Strike and Rancor is essentially self-explanatory. Works amazingly well with all my creatures, even Thalia.
Selesnya Charm x4 - Dispatches Angel of Serenity quite nicely, especially with this decks ability to reload. Works as a fun combat trick with both the +2/2 Trample and the Knight (flashing in a creature to bind to Silverblade Paladin will never cease being trolly.)
Temple Card x4 - Self explanatory
Sunpetal Grove x4 - Self explanatory
Cavern of Souls x3 - Amazing against control, very little need for colored mana for spells, as there's only 9 of them.
Gavony Township x2 - Perfect number for it to be a semi-consistant pull, helps win the stall war, and pumps things out of the range of burn.
Plains x5 - More white mana needed than green mana.
Forest x4 - See above.
Garruk Relentless x2 - Good against the control matchup, Statishade, and creature barren decks. Commonly sideboarded in.
Rest in Peace x3 - Because I hate Junk Rites with a burning passion. No more will Lingering Souls remain relevant, or with a well times resurrected Angel of Serenity make me lose my board control.
Ranger's Guile x3 - Playtesting revealed it to be much more desirable over Faith's Shield. Anti spot removal (namely Azorius Charm.)
Centaur Healer x3 - Loxodon Smiter comes out for this guy in the aggro matchup. This deck will always win late game against other aggro decks. All I need is the time, which is exactly what this guy provides.
Restoration Angel x2 - Take out for the remaining two sublimes in the control matchup. Anti spot removal.
Oblivion Ring x2 - Gets rids of Falkenrath Aristocrat, Gloom Surgeon, and the other creatures that essentially make my deck grind to a halt

Also, took 18th at the Cincinnati 10k in February, however, the decklist database only went to 16th.
This deck has taken me upwards of 8 FNM 1st places, some of which I went 10-0 (cumulative games) on the night.
