    1-drop choice is mostly a preference. I like to have 4x Dauntless Bodyguard and 4x Legion's Landing. Other than that I favor Law-Rune Enforcer, Skymarcher Aspirant, Snubhorn Sentry and Hunted Witness over other 1-drops.
    I think White has a lot of strong 2-drops and, on the contrary of most popular builds, I still believe playing ~7-8 is good idea (a lot of people cut them for more 1-drops). That way you have much better topdecks than normally.
    I wouldn't play more Gideon Blackblades mainboard than 1. He's very weak vs aggro decks when you're behind. Imagine playing him vs mono R with no creatures on board.
    The same would be Unbreakable Formation. On paper its great vs creature matchups and obviously it's good to swing for free. On the other hand topdecking it on empty board is really unwanted and having 2x in opening hand is a nightmare. I found myself sideboarding it out more often than not.
    Also Conclave Tribunal is the removal of choice over Baffling End and Ixalan's Binding - it catches everything and thanks to the amount of creatures you can generate you can cheat it as soon as turn 3.

    Thanks! I could definitely shave a Gideon blackbladeor two mb, haven't been to a standard night in WAR season yet and my friend who i playtest with is rolling the infinite Ral combo, so I've had the luxury of playing against a slower deck. I definitely like conclave tribunal over baffling end! I found a new lgs so I'll be taking your suggestions to heart until I see the local meta.

    Hey gents, fairly new magic player, (came in after dominaria dropped). And am still picking up some of the nuances of the game. WW is my first aggro build and Ive mostly played control and some mid range brews. But once I played ww, it was love at first win, below is my deck list, nix sideboard because I'm debating on if lil teferi is worth the blue splash.

    19x Plains

    3x dauntless bodyguard
    3x Skymarcher aspirant
    3x healer's hawk
    2x snubhorn sentry
    2x law rune enforcer
    3x Adanto Vanguard
    2x Tithe Taker
    4x Benalish Marshal
    4x Venerated Loxodon

    2x Unbreakable Formation
    2x Legion's Landing
    4x History of Benalia
    3x Gideon Blackblade
    2x Ixalan's Binding
    2x Baffling End
    Obviously it's not completely meta and I know I have a few weird cuts in places and some trade offs. I'm open to any suggestions, questions or general discussion of it. This is also my first post so if something's wrong please let me know! Look forward to discussing!
