I'm not sure just how tight your budget is, but I can see a number of easy ways to make some little improvements!
If you only go for a single nonbasic land, then Emeria, The Sky Ruin is an excellent choice for providing late-game value. Kjeldoran Outpost and Daru Encampment are also good options, as are Secluded Steppe and Drifting Meadow if you draw them late game when you don't need any more lands.
Djeru seems like a very... odd choice if you don't have any planeswalkers. I think that Thraben Doomsayer, Riders of Gavony or Devout Chaplain could all serve you better. By the way, are you sure Hada Freeblade and Kazandu Blademaster are worth it if they are the only two allies in the deck? You might be better off with Champion of the Parish and Hanweir Militia Captain Flip - or Elite Inquisitor, if you liked the Blademaster's abilities. Thraben Inspector or Thraben Standard Bearer could also be run over Champion of the Parish if budget is an issue.

This looks like a pretty solid Soldier tribal deck. But I see some room for improvement:
- There are a couple of lands I would suggest running that will be a little better than Plains in your deck. Firstly, Daru Encampment is a staple soldier land. I would also look at Nomad Stadium as a means to deal yourself damage and increase your legion. There are also some generally good white mana-makers which can be of use in any monowhite deck. But they tend to be pricey, so I'll leave them off my list.
- You're making a ton of tokens with this deck, and to that end Anointed Procession can be of assistance.
- Catapult Master and Catapult Squad are two all-stars in Soldier tribal that sometimes get missed.
- Finally, there seem to be some cards in here that aren't pulling their weight as Soldiers. I would remove Perimeter Captain and Valiant Guard, along with Timely Reinforcements. There are just better options in Commander than those cards.
I hope this helps. This looks like a super-fun EDH deck, and +1 for using my favorite tribal card: Cryptic Gateway.

Since you listed this as casual, you could throw in some older cards from Coldsnap, Darien, King of Kjeldor and Jotun Grunt. King Darien will just boost your tokens if you should happen to take damage. Adding a Coat of Arms will play nicely with all the tokens you should be generating. Maybe a Daru Encampment and/or Kjeldoran Outpost in place of a plains or two. Just a few thoughts.Thumbs up from this veteran, btw !!

Might look at Aerial Responder. The lifelink has helped a lot in my soldier deck if the game drags out too long. Especially with his flying and vigilance plus all the pump spells you'll be playing.
Also Daru Encampment because why not.
Not many suggestions to make, pretty awesome deck as is!

Blighted Steppe,Daru Encampment, Eiganjo Castle, Forbidding Watchtower, Kabira Crossroads, Rustic Clachan. Are all either too slow or a wasted slot. I'd switch them out with Basic lands till you find something better.
(P.S. I messed up the formating for the hyperlink to my deck but Give it I quick glance, might give you some ideas)

Ah! Where's your Mobilization? And your Bastion Protector? Catapult Master? Darien, King of Kjeldor? Field Marshal? Daru Warchief? Maybe even Commander Eesha with some wicked equipment (I'm looking at you, Scytheclaw!!). And you're missing Daru Encampment (and several other lands too)!
Aside from that, many of your card choices seem a bit inconsistent and somewhat random... And this needs a bit more removal.
