I would go with Honor of the Pure > Path of Bravery. I understand the extra life-gain on attack but I like the idea of it dropping a turn earlier (and potentially be able to blow out affinity's 1 toughness creatures ;p). i would also look into Return to the Ranks > Immortal Servitude. While I do like Immortal Servitude you can get thinks like your Mentor of the Meek or Ajani's Pridemate back with Return to the Ranks. Not to mention you get to stack how they enter so Pridemade can become MASSIVE upon entry.There's another way you can go with the deck as well. If you get Thalia's Lieutenant, Champion of the Parish and Thraben Inspector with Ajani's Pridemate, Mentor of the Meek and Doomed Traveler you have a cool human synergy Soul Sisters deck for very little $$$$. Sorry for the novel, I just LOVE the Soul Sisters deck. A really good person to watch on youtube is The Rouge Deckbuilder. He plays SS competitively and has like 4 different builds of the deck. Good Luck and have fun!

Cool deck! Good idea for a budget version. I have a little advice to make it a bit more competitive if you would like! Lingering Souls is one of the better cards in modern, especially in this deck. You should try to play 4 if possible. Falkenrath Torturer is easily the worst of your Aristocrats. So if you ever look to cut any, that would be the one. Gather the Townsfolk is usually a better card than Thatcher Revolt. It may be worth playing 4 of the Gather. Finally, Xathrid Necromancer might be very good in this version of the deck. I would think about adding a couple. With Gather the Townsfolk, Doomed Traveler, Cartel Aristocrat, and Zulaport Cutthroat it will be very useful.

looks like you have some human/vampire synergy going.
Falkenrath Aristocrat is a good sac outlet if you are willing to add red.
Vampiric Rites is cheap and useful with tokens.

I think you need Doomed Traveler in this deck for sure. Blood Artist, Reassembling Skeleton or something like Ghoulcaller's Accomplice could all be helpful. If you have a bit of extra money Bitterblossom would be amazing with the deck.

Hi! Deck looks pretty sweet overall, but I have a few suggestions:
I think there are better options than Doomed Dissenter, for instance Sultai Emissary, which is normally strictly better, ignoring Triplicate Spirits interactions. I think Doomed Traveler is quite a bit better as well.

Great soldier themed deck. I see what you are going for and I think you've got a good idea. However there are some cards in this list that aren't that efficient.
Creatures that tap for a temporary +1 bonus for a single target are nice in a draft or limited format, not so much in commander.
-1 Anointer of Champions
-1 Infantry Veteran
The following creatures aren't that great either, but for different reasons.
-1 Benalish Veteran, 3 mana for a 2/2 that only gets a bonus when attacking. Nice but there are better options.
-1 Guardians of Akrasa, the exalted ability works against your battalion ability. Also, can't attack due to defender.
-1 Serene Master, not a soldier, has a kind of cute combat ability, but there are better creatures.
-1 Truefire Paladin, not a soldier, only pumps itself.
I'll start with your maybe board and then some cards you may have over looked.
+1 Catapult Master, really good removal.+1 Daru Warchief, makes most of your other creaturs cheaper.
+1 Field Marshal, like Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" pumps most of your creatures.
Other creatures to consider:
Doomed Traveler, Loyal Cathar Flip replaces itself when it dies.
Elite Vanguard, a solid 2/1 for 1 mana.
Fencing Ace, Iroas's Champion, Boros Swiftblade are cheap creatures with double strike.
Gideon's Avenger, just keeps getting bigger.
Knight-Captain of Eos, not a soldier, but turns each of those soldier tokens a Holy Day.
Mentor of the Meek, for the card draw ability. Works well with the Daru Warchief and other cheap creatures in your deck.
Precinct Captain, cheap creature with first strike and keeps making more soldier tokens.
Soldier of the Pantheon can be really good in commander games, lots of multi-colored creatures, including commnders.
Thalia's Lieutenant, has a lot of synergy with everything else.
Enough about the creatures. Lets take a look at the support spells. Consider taking out the following:
Curse of Bloodletting, only affects a single opponent. Weak in multi-player games.
Pacifism, only temporarily removes a single threat
Fortify, Martial Glory, Show of Valor, War Flare, Desperate Stand are all weak temporary bonus cards. Not something you want to draw after a Wrath of God resolves.
Accorder's Shield, there are so many better equipments. Trusty Machete, Silver-Inlaid Dagger, Basilisk Collar, and Loxodon Warhammer immediately come to mind, especially for the aggressive nature of this deck.
Have you looked into any ot these:Blaze Commando, not a human, but, makes instants like Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix and Warleader's Helix more effective.
Door of Destinies, since most of your creatures are soldiers.
Martial Coup, is a great board wipe that can also let you play 'catch up'.
Mobilization, to make an army after a board wipe.
There are some cards in your maybe board that i don't think would be that good for your deck.
Ancient Tomb, really good for fast mana in competitive formats, expensive card to buy if you don't have one.
Ancient Ziggurat, nice in a five color creature deck, not really good in this one.
Mystifying Maze is kinda tricky, you could end up helping your opponent when you don't want to.
Gemstone Caverns has the same problem as Ancient Ziggurat and is less consistent.
Aftr taking those land cards out, every other land card in your maybe board should be in the deck if you have them or are planning on getting them.
Please keep in mind that, most of the time, Commander/EDH is a format about endurance not speed. Don't be afraid to drop big threats.
As always, temper these suggestions with your collection and your budget. Feel free to take a look at my decks and let me know what you think.
