What 3 drops do you think are least important and I should remove to add suggested cards.?

Not bad. There's definitely a lot of synergy here. Here are some cards you might want to consider: Mother of Runes for protection, Weathered Wayfarer and Solemn Simulacrum for some more land insurance/ramp, Geist-Honored Monk and Angel of Invention are both great token generators on bodies, Path to Exile and Oblation are both decent spot removal. I also very much like Grasp of Fate as it exiles something from each of your opponents. Mind Stone and Hedron Archive are both nice mana rocks that can turn into cards when you need them. Finally, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar has become a lot more affordable since it rotated out and works great with your deck.
Cards I would consider cutting since they are either not that good or too slow for what they do: Court Street Denizen, Frontline Medic, God-Favored General, Intrepid Hero, Precinct Captain, Requiem Angel, Twilight Drover, Call for Unity, Gideon's Intervention, Mobilization, Deploy to the Front.

Would Court Street Denizen be good here?

I assume it's supposed to be a modern deck, right?
then you need to make it more boring. That is "consistent": Decide on which cards are the best - are there some you really want to see in your hand every time you start a game? those you need 4 of. That's stuff like Path to Exile - it's just better when you have it. And you need to decide on how you are going to win. If the winning is to be done by big fat lategame angels, you need a plan for surviving the early game (stall until turn 4, then play Day of Judgment, perhaps). All this means: Remove all the one-ofs you don't really use to win games with, and bump up the number of those, you use for winning, and keep an eye out for replacing cards with something better. Why play Steeple Roc when you could play Flickerwisp instead? Same body, flying, but Flickerwisp has a strong ability and costs less mana (and lacks first strike). Voice of the Provinces is soooo overpriced - 6 mana for a microsize angel and a human token.
Also... eh... many of your cards are somewhat underpowered. There are reasons you don't see many Lionheart Mavericks in modern. Crusader of Odric is also on this list - it's only good if you are winning anyway. Court Street Denizen... all your enchantments (avoid playing auras on creatures without hexproof - opponent shoots the creature, and that's a 2-for-1 right there). Nav Squad Commandos. And several more (in general, assume that creatures for 4 or 5 mana should have a strong impact on the game, not just be random attackers). Instead, add cards like these: Restoration Angel, Baneslayer Angel, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Bruna, the Fading Light, if you can find the money for them.
A general note on creatures in modern: Lightning Bolt is a very popular card. Therefore, you have to watch out for creatures with toughness 3 or less and their casting cost. Guardian of the Gateless is an example of a real no-no in that regard; most likely you'll spend a full turns mana just playing it. Losing it to a 1 cmc spell just feels bad.

If token generation is what you want, some things you might like are: Martial Coup, Deploy to the Front, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Court Street Denizen, Frontline Medic, Angelic Accord, Path of Bravery, and Moonsilver Spear.
Token generation is primarily a white thing. If that's really what you want, you might have an easier time in mono-white.

Here are what i think are the weaker cards in your deck. I'm not saying that everything I don't mention is ideal or that the ones i'm suggesting cutting are awful but this is where i'd personally start if I was trimming my own deck as possible cards to consider cutting:
Cliffside Lookout: This card seems a bit out of place. If you want a 1-drop ally Hada Freeblade is better. If you want to focus more on life gain, Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, or Serra Ascendant would be a better fit.
Angel of Renewal/Conclave Phalanx: While they can gain you some life, they cost a bit more mana than i'd like. I feel that for 6 mana Sorin, Grim Nemesis is a better threat as it can still gain you life while taking down a creature the turn it comes into play or draw you some cards. Either way 6 mana is still a lot so be careful you don't but too many high cmc spells in the deck. Conclave is a bit better since it has convoke but i still don't think it does enough.
Court Street Denizen: In a two color deck you will still get some value out of this but I prefer cards like Gideon's Lawkeeper/Goldmeadow Harrier as you can tap them on your opponents "Declare Attackers" step to prevent them from attacking you, and they remain tapped until their next turn meaning they can't block either.
Pulse Tracker: This is a pretty aggressive card for your deck. Also even if they play a 1/2, you can't attack safely into them anymore.
Curse of the Forsaken: Good in multiplayer games but in 1v1 it's not ideal.

Court Street Denizen is only showing up as a black face in the Playtester.
In fact, if you tap on the link above, you will only get a black face, with prices at the bottom.

I'm not a big fan of Soul Warden without a way to use the lifegain. Azorius Arrester, Court Street Denizen, Elite Scaleguard, Goldnight Commander, Mentor of the Meek are some good creatures with the relevant subtypes of human and soldier. Otherworldly Journey and Panharmonicon could be fun too. Looks like a fun deck.
