Have you considered Field Marshal as a lord for all your solders and it gives the first strike

id recommend Mentor of the Meek and Boros Charm, mentor for draw and insane damage or protection with charm, Field Marshal would be insane

and Legion Loyalist maybe in sideboard vs aggro or token decks

also, Tajic, Blade of the Legion and Odric, Master Tactician are game finishers especially when you can cheat them in with precinct captain, one copy of each might be worth testing!

Raise the Alarm for emergency blockers or "haste" tokens is always good, and Timely Reinforcements is an insane sideboard card

and Soul Warden/Kor Firewalker for extra lifegain :)

Hey, would Forbidding Watchtower be a god fit for the deck, I have 4 copies, but had the old one that didn't say "soldier" in it... maybe having a Field Marshal in play will make it a lot better...

Hey cmsrDPM. As mentioned in the description, Field Marshal is a bit too expensive for me atm. So am looking for cheaper options like Paragon of New Dawns and considering Veteran Swordsmith among other options as a replacement.

HI! I love human aggro decks! Please check out mine Humans and Soldiers: Go for the Face. I think it will give you some good ideas. Honor of the Pure is arguably better because you can get it out faster. You should 4x Brave the Elements. I think Oketra's Monument is too slow. For me personally, equipment is too slow and only buffs ONE creature. Where as Honor of the Pure or Field Marshal can buff all/most of them. As far as lands, consider Westvale Abbey  Flip as a finisher. In an aggro deck, you should have defeated your opponent well before you have seven lands on the battlefield Emeria, The Sky Ruin. Mutavault are also fantastic in tribal! Upvote.

TheFlameReaper on Odric's Plans

The Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Angelic Overseer combo seems really cool but the odds of pulling that off and their mana costs would probably not be suited for the tempo of this deck =\

This deck is a mix of humans and soldiers but humans are taking priority since humans interact with 8 cards (Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant) while soldiers only interact with 4 (Field Marshal). Hence, Ballyrush Banneret (which I would probably not benefit that much considering there are so many token noncreature spells and only white mana costing creatures) and Fairgrounds Warden are out.

Preeminent Captain I'm not really sure about its effectiveness? I like that I can spawn a free soldier but is it worth it despite all my creatures having such low costs?

Omnomnominath on Odric's Plans

There are plenty of lords in this deck, which definitely supports the go-wide Odric plan. However, I find 19 lands to be a bit too little if you want to cast 4-drops like Archangel of Tithes. Of these cards, I'd trim some number of Field Marshal and/or Honor of the Pure and replace them with Plains to hit your mana on time. I think you should have at least 3-4 lands, perhaps even 5 more. Furthermore, I'd swap the Path to Exile and Fiend Hunter. Fiend Hunter eats removal like nobody else, often dying soon after he hits the table. Path keeps the enemy threat gone for good, and you can bring in Fiend Hunter if you're going up against fast aggro without much interaction to snipe their guy and be done with it. Another interesting card you may want to add is Selfless Spirit, perhaps as a Brave the Elements replacement. Both cards effectively save you from board wipes. The flying bodies you'll have from it and Archangel of Tithes will allow you to fly over most board stalls, making the unblockable part of protection less relevant.

Hope this helps, I like your list!
