Cards I would take out: Acolyte of the Inferno, Akrasan Squire, Akroan Sergeant, Alaborn Grenadier, Alaborn Veteran, Altac Bloodseeker, Alaborn Zealot, Fire Diamond, Pristine Talisman, Bandage, and Armistice. I will suggest more later on.
Then add some of the following: Bruna, the Fading Light, Sword of Feast and Famine, Enlightened Tutor, Sublime Archangel, Aggravated Assault, Loxodon Warhammer, Iroas, God of Victory, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Sun Titan, Master Warcraft, Assemble the Legion, Return to Dust, Aurelia's Fury, Frontline Medic, Solemn Simulacrum, World at War, Thran Dynamo, Darksteel Ingot, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Legion's Initiative, Angel of Glory's Rise, Mother of Runes, Legion Loyalist, Steelshaper's Gift, Commander's Sphere, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Emeria Shepherd, Knight of the White Orchid, Balefire Liege, Mirran Crusader, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Grand Abolisher, Angel of Serenity, Angel of the Dire Hour, Angelic Arbiter, Hanweir Garrison along with Hanweir Battlements, Angelic Overseer, Exquisite Archangel, Requiem Angel, Resolute Archangel, Hammer of Nazahn, Sword of the Animist,Sunforger, Swiftfoot Boots and or Lightning Greaves, and Boros Signet.

By running Dispatch you are hurting yourself even if it is a placeholder instead use Banishing Light, Cast Out, or Declaration in Stone as those don't require a ton of artifacts to be useful. In terms of the creatures I would remove everything but Champion of the Parish, Boros Elite, Thalia's Lieutenant, Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Glory-Bound Initiate, and Knight of the White Orchid. everything else is really surplus to requirements and can be replaced by better cards that synergize better with your deck and agro plan, for example Thalia, Heretic Cathar is not agro she is control.
Personally I would run 4x Boros Elite, 4x Champion of the Parish, 4x Thalia's Lieutenant, 4x Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, 3x Glory-Bound Initiate, and 2x Knight of the White Orchid. The rest can be filled out be other creatures that work with the deck like Bygone Bishop, Student of Warfare, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Doomed Traveler, Frontline Medic, and maybe even a couple eldrazi.

As a fellow cleric tribal enthusiast I appreciate where you are trying to go with the deck but you seem to be suffering some of the same issues I ran into myself, namely not having focused synergies that build into a win condition.
A strong sub theme of your deck seems to revolve around life gain, so with that in mind lets add to and weaponize this sub theme into win conditions. I agree with kamelyan that you should add Conspiracy as its quite nasty with Rotlung Reanimator and Cabal Archon, the only reason I don't run these two in my cleric deck is the hardcore clash with Angel of Glory's Rise. Beacon of Immortality and Test of Endurance make for an interesting and intractable win condition that plays along with your life gain theme for surprise victories. Stern Judge with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth can be nasty repeatable drain where you use your life gain to stay ahead of other peoples dwindling life totals. Also, consider Greed and Erebos, God of the Dead for further card draw that works with your life gain. Also Boon Reflection might be useful as well.
Some general replacements that might serve you better would be Scholar of Athreos over Pious Evangel Flip, the drain effect is a nice mana dump, Frontline Medic over Banisher Priest allows you to play more aggressively and the counter ability can catch people by surprise and Grand Abolisher over Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, the Captain generates tokens far to slowly and often requires you to over extend to make it any good.
For additional tribal removal options consider Kor Sanctifiers, War Priest of Thune, Leonin Relic-Warder and Reliquary Monk. Although I find Reliquary Monk and Relic-Warder to be more tricky to use without a sacrifice outlet.
I hope this helps you, I look forward to seeing where you take the deck.

I run a similar list including anya in the 99 but with tajic at the helm.
Due to her indestructible nature and access to stuff like Boros Charm Frontline Medic Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Iroas, God of Victory, i would recommend running powerful spells that indestructible creatures like anya, see my list for reference, but a ton of spells exist that anya survives but everything else wont
Also, your lack of tutors is disturbing :/
As far as artifact theme, you're missing a few key cards
Without this, a single Vandalblast neuters your game plan
not just flavor, this card allows you to run a "toolbox" of 1-4 cmc instants, some i run in tajic are
Creatures constantly being destroyed? Fear not. Leave 4 mana open and anya and friends will NEVER die, it also abuses etb effects like Godo, Bandit Warlord

Here's a couple more suggestions: For creature protection, Selfless Spirit or Cauldron Haze can help save you from a boardwipe. Bar the Door is also good. Frontline Medic can be great in the late game, especially when combined with vigilance, from Always Watching or Brave the Sands. Guardians' Pledge can help you slide in a lot more damage if you have a large number of creatures on the field. Also, I noticed that Archetype of Courage is a better version of Field Marshal, unless you're facing a lot of enchantment removal.

First of all. May I ask why you are running 2x Ethersworn Canonist?? She just completely ruins your strategy. The strength from the Soldier tribe is its aggressive game-plan and I don't really seem to see that coming from your deck. This is what I would play in a modern soldier tribal:
- Banisher Priest
- Field Marshal
- Ranger of Eos
- Silverblade Paladin
- Boros Elite
- Frontline Medic
- Hero of Bladehold
Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Eiganjo Castle are cards more fitted for the EDH/Commander format. They are to slow and by turn 7 you are winning or have already lost in modern so Emeria, The Sky Ruin can't do it's thing in this format.
Your sideboard is a bit to wide and will make your deck highly inconsistent if you board them in. Try to filter your side-board to what you really need (depending on your meta) and then put two to three copies of each needed card in it.
