There are a lot of soldiers out there, but some of the must-haves I feel you're missing are Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Preeminent Captain , Evangel of Heliod , Nomads' Assembly , Launch the Fleet , and Deploy to the Front . High Sentinels of Arashin and Elite Scaleguard could also be very powerful, depending on how much +1/+1 counter stuff you plan on doing.
I think the deck could also use some more "vegetables" cards. You should be running Boros Signet , at minimum, but Boros Keyrune , Boros Locket , Mind Stone , Sword of the Animist , and Knight of the White Orchid should probably be in the conversation, as well. Vandalblast , Aura of Silence , Crush Contraband , Return to Dust , etc. are all removal you might consider over the abundance of creature removal you have. In terms of card draw, being tribal, you could look into Vanquisher's Banner could also do work.
As for cuts, you shouldn't be running Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse in a 2-color deck. Ancient Amphitheater , Needle Spires , and even Stone Quarry are all strictly better without cards that care about land types or Landfall. The deck thinning is inconsequential in a 99-card deck, and you'd rather have the flexibility. Catapult Master, Hour of Devastation (you know it removes indestructible, right?), Deafening Clarion, and Hammerfist Giant all seem pretty suspect to me, just on card quality. Rather than Deafening Clarion, Firesong and Sunspeaker seem better with the Earthquake theme.

I designed a similar Reaper King EDH deck years ago, and while it's not especially good, it's certainly my favourite!
I'd say your biggest concern is that that mana base needs work. Having nearly all of your lands come into play tapped is sure to get you overwhelmed. You'd do well to run City of Brass and Mana Confluence - since you start with 40 life to work with, they're essentially Command Tower #2 and 3. Since you're running all of the changelings, you'll probably also appreciate the tribal taplands from Lorwyn. I see you already have Primal Beyond, but Ancient Amphitheater, Auntie's Hovel, Gilt-Leaf Palace, Murmuring Bosk, Secluded Glen and Wanderwine Hub will more often than not come into play untapped and can make coloured mana for any of your spells.

Have you considered Boros Signet, Worn Powerstone and Gilded Lotus? Heartless Hidetsugu is game over if Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is out. Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods and True Conviction are great for beatdown. Boros Charm is really versatile in this deck. You can swap Take Vengeance for Swords to Plowshares. Sunforger is the greatest card in Boros and can grab any instant at 4 CMC or less. // It's good to run Command Tower, Battlefield Forge, Temple of Triumph, Needle Spires, Ancient Amphitheater, Boros Guildgate are good for mana fixing. Slayers' Stronghold, Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion and Rogue's Passage are good for combat tricks; Mistveil Plains brings recursion; Spinerock Knoll is great at cheating costs; Secluded Steppe and Forgotten Cave for card selection. // Revitalize, Lightning Helix, Demystify, Fountain of Renewal are subpar in this deck.

How's your manabase working out for you? I'd strongly recommend City of Brass and Mana Confluence - since you're starting with 40 life, they're basically Command Towers #2 and 3. Path of Ancestry is also flat-out better than any of the taplands, even if you never get its scry ability.
In addition, if you're running one of each changeling, you should try and use the tribal lands from Lorwyn, since they often perform as dual lands without a drawback! That would include Secluded Glen, Wanderwine Hub, Ancient Amphitheater, Gilt-Leaf Palace, Auntie's Hovel and Murmuring Bosk.

As long as it has changeling, which Taurean Mauler does, it is all creature types at all times and you can reveal it for Ancient Amphitheater. The printed type is in case something removes abilities, like Humility does, it will still be a shapeshifter. If something is a shapeshifter but not a changeling (Clone for example) then you can not reveal it to have Ancient Amphitheater come in untapped.
