Took a mulligan to 3 cards at FNM playing R/G/u Tron. I kept getting no-land hands. After shuffling vigorously, I draw my three cards which were were Ancient Stirrings, Chromatic Star, and Urza's Tower.
Turn four: Draw and play Wurmcoil Engine -> proceed to victory.
The top decks were absolutely nuts.
I've mulliganed to four playing Tron before and won, but that was the first time I'd won going that low.
The other ridiculous win I had was playing Jund Blitz back in RtR-Theros Standard versus Mono-Black Devotion in top 4 of a $100 cash prize tournament. I had gone down to 4 cards after seeing several no-land or all-land hands.
Turn four: Draw Ghor-Clan Rampager, swing with everyone, trigger battalion again, bloodrush for 11 damage even.
The scry land coming into play tapped is what killed him. He showed me his hand (not to mention Pack Rat's ability), which was Herald of Torment, Hero's Downfall, Desecration Demon, and Nightveil Specter.

May I suggest a few cards:Buttalion Creatures
Skyknight Legionnaire Is a nice card with some abilities that can allow you to put on damage.
Firefist Striker Gives you some pseudo-evasion against a big blocker or a deathtoucher.
Truefire Paladin Why not? Good abilities, Activated and Passive.
Highspire Mantis Why the fuck not. Evasion, Trample, Holyshit this does work.
Akroan Hoplite A bunch of attackers and this gets big. FAST.
Crusader of Odric More creatures? MORE BUFF.
One may consider some heroic bullshit in this deck
Akroan Crusader Makes 1/1 reds with haste. Good for flooding the board.
Phalanx Leader Buffs all your creatures with +1/+1 tokens each time it is targeted.
General Army Buffs
Iroas, God of Victory Allows your Battalion to attack with out fear of dying. This is VERY NICE.
Heliod, God of the Sun Gives your guys vigilance.
Maybe consider an Ajani? IDK planes walkers are fun. Ajani Steadfast Or Ajani, Caller of the Pride Is a possibility. Gideon Jura has a hilarious ability where he can cause all your opponents non vigilance creatures to tap. its too good.
Launch the Fleet LOL i love this spell for flooding the board. Tokens.
Raise the Alarm Tokens.
Oblivion Ring Duh.
Nevermore Fuck their commander unless they have removal.
Journey to Nowhere Lawl.
Boros Charm 4 damage of Yippie.
Deflecting Palm Akkido at its finest.

Soldier & Angel theme with big spells could rule. Here's some ideas:
Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion (this has won me many games with Zurgo)
Herald of War (probably want to add a few more angels, but this can make humans pretty much free)
Obviously a lot more space to explore here, but it's a start.

Interesting deck! To increase competitive potential, you may want to go up to 4 copies of Firefist Striker, Frontline Medic, Firemane Avenger, and maybe Akroan Hoplite. Also, maybe switch the Boros Guildgates for Wind-Scarred Crags (strictly better).

I've got some suggestions for creatures, commander buff, token generation, and combat tricks:
Creatures;Battlegrace Angel = Boros Guildmage,Firefist Striker = Charmbreaker Devils,Fortress Cyclops = Heliod, God of the Sun,Lightning Mauler = Legion Loyalist,Silverblade Paladin = Odric, Master Tactician,Spark Trooper = Purphoros, God of the Forge,Truefire Paladin = Tajic, Blade of the Legion,Wojek Halberdiers = Young Pyromancer,Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" = Balefire Liege,Student of Warfare = Akroan Hoplite

Instants I would cut -
- Riot Control and Holy Day. Since most matchups you will likely be the aggro deck, you will want to put more pressure on them and just kill their creatures with things like bolt/path.
Creatures I would cut -
Guardian of the Gateless - probably too slow for this kind of deck. Also you don't want to be blocking very much since you want to be more aggressive. Could make a neat SB card versus other creature-based decks, especially Zoo.
Warmind Infantry - Just a little too slow.
Take Out -
- 1x Holy Day
- 1x Riot Control
- 2x Boros Mastiff
- 2x Guardian of the Gateless
- 3x Warmind Infantry
- 2x Firefist Striker
- 3x Frontline Medic
