Looks pretty tasty, and it's a great start!
I would take out Quest for the Holy Relic, Open the Armory, and Strength of Arm due to not really having that much equipment. I would add 3 more Plains (I would also try to balance your mana better, try less Mountains and more Plains). If that mana fixing becomes an issue, add in Evolving Wilds, Myriad Landscape, Warped Landscape, Terminal Moraine, Arid Mesa, Naya Panorama, or Terramorphic Expanse. I would recommend adding at least 3-5 fetch lands to help mana fixing.
If you take out Armory of Iroas, Murder Investigation, and Coat of Arms, you could free up the last two spots for the 38 lands.
I did notice that a lot of your soldiers have a synergy with equipment cards, yet you only run 2 equipment cards. I was a bit confused by this. I would recommend taking them all out and replacing them. I would also recommend trying to run 2 more soldiers (you are at that tribal sweet spot with all the soldier creatures, but Boros is known for being aggressive with instant/sorcery AND creatures). 30 creatures is great aggro. Here are some creatures I would recommend: Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Blaze Commando, Sunhome Guildmage, Preeminent Captain, Field Marshal, Daru Warchief, Ballyrush Banneret, Veteran Swordsmith, Rhox Pikemaster, or Catapult Squad. The cards I'd recommend to take out are Auriok Steelshaper, Auriok Survivors, Auriok Windwalker, Conclave Phalanx, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Relic Seeker, Fated Conflagration, Arrows of Justice.
You already have a lot of key cards. I do see that your mana is very unbalanced. I would add more Plains. If you just take out one Mountain at a time and switch it for a Plains until your Pie Chart for your mana is "perfectly" aligned. It won't always be there, but the closer the better. With this being a tribal deck, it would help to have cards like Cavern of Souls, but that's a make-or-break card for you wallet. I actually don't even have one (it's one of the last 9 cards I WANT for my Gishath deck). Soldiers won't really get a lot of heat at any of my play groups, so getting countered shouldn't be that big of an issue.
Here is what I would take out and add:
- Quest for the Holy Relic - Open the Armory - Strength of Arm - Armory of Iroas - Coat of Arms - Murder Investigation - Auriok Steelshaper - Auriok Survivors - Auriok Windwalker - Conclave Phalanx - Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas - Relic Seeker - Fated Conflagration - Arrows of Justice + Evolving Wilds + Terramorphic Expanse + Naya Panorama + 3x Plains + Sunhome Guildmage + Brimaz, King of Oreskos + Daru Warchief + Rhox Pikemaster + Ballyrush Banneret + Field Marshal + Veteran Swordsmith + Preeminent Captain Rebalance Mountains and Plains to match the Pie Chart
Sorry for the ranty post. I get a bit into it.

What do you think is wrong with your deck? This is your deck, not mine; here's what I suggest.
I feel like Hero of Bladehold costs too much money and mana for what she does.
Are you sure you want to run that many planeswalkers? I run Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip because he is a cheap creature that can flip into a planeswalker. Plus I feel that Elspeth, Sun's Champion costs too much mana too late into the game to be useful as well. You need to lower your average converted mana cost.
If you want the deck to be cheaper run only Plains if you have to.
Daru Warchief isn't legal in modern btw.
Hope this helps!

Casual is fine, but I would suggest picking a format and building with it in mind. You have Modern selected, but cards like Daru Warchief aren't in it. If you do decide to make the deck modern however, I would suggest making it more aggresive with: War Falcon, Raise the Alarm, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Metallic Mimic, and more copies of Precinct Captain. Finally, if you need removal, Path to Exile is a great modern staple

So my friends and I are playing pauper edh. My commander is Esper Battlemage. My friend swings in with two creatures - his commander, Daru Warchief, and another soldier. I tap my commander to prevent two damage.
Since Esper Battlemage doesn't target a creature with its damage prevention, how can I tell if I prevented his commander damage or just his little soldier?

@Mike94 Thx a lot ! I looked at all possible extentions for good soldier cards, but I forgot that conspiracy cards was available !!Recruiter of the Guard will be in asap.
Stoneforge Mystic : The "problem" with this card is the fact that she is not a soldier and will not be buffed after beeing played. Most of the time my Relic Seeker can be a thread in late game (Coat of Arms Door of Destinies Daru Warchief ... )
And for the last card (Knight-Captain of Eos), I m waiting for the release of the new commanders 2017 set to add some defensive cards like Teferi's Protection .
