and maybe instead of maybe 1 Gather the Townsfolk and maybe 1 Journey try some Sunlances

you could try Cenn's Enlistment. Kind of like Gather the Townsfolk, but double the price, and you get to cast it multiple times, like Battle Screech

I like Aether Vial as a card and think it is worth a slot, however, in the latest modern protour if you look at the results the Collected Company variants actually placed overall better than the Vial lists for 5c Humans. I'm not saying you need to run a list similar to that, however, it does make sense. Drawing a CoCo on turn 4 or 5 is amazing, where as a Vial is just plain depressing... something to keep in mind.

One card that I do think you need somewhere in the deck is Dryad Militant. I get that she isn't a human, but she looks like on and she is very anti-control/Snapcaster Mage decks.

I understand the price barrier, but Noble Hierarch would help the aggressive nature of this deck. If you goldfish with her for a while, you should feel the power she holds as that one point of damage every turn adds up quick.

I see it is in your sideboard, so I won't say too much but Tireless Tracker also holds a ton of power. Drawing is a fun thing in magic.

All in all, I'd probably flip out the Gather the Townsfolk for CoCo, Hamlet Captain for Tireless Tracker, take out the Warden of the First Tree for one extra Thali and lastly add in a few copies of Dryad Militant in place of maybe... Mardu Woe-Reaper since that cards seems the weakest fo all the cards in the deck.

I like the build and the idea, but that is just my suggestions for it.

Also, Riders of Gavony is a cute card to consider. Best of luck!

A lot of what is being said above I'd tend to agree on, so I won't go over that here. If you want the most competitive humans list just run the 5 color lists, so much consistency and aggression in those lists with a ton of lil humans is insane. However, if you want something fun then I don't see an issue in humans but there are a few things to add on to that.

First off, someone above mentioned issues with Thali. You are running 18 non-creature spells that will be taxed in a weenie style deck, and that is way to high. With Weenie decks, early aggro is your entire game plan. Steal games early by throwing a ton of little humans around to be as annoying as possible, so taxing all your spells might not be the best plan. In the least, Gather the Townsfolk, Lightning Bolt and Honor of the Pure needs to come out, I also feel that Copter needs to come out but that is your call.

In their place, you could look into Hanweir Garrison + Hanweir Battlements. I'd split 4-2. This way, if the early plan becomes stifled you have an option of a semi midrangey deck. Plus, Hanweir Garrison + Champion of the Parish is some good synergy.

I'd definitely add in Thraben Inspector, since it replaces itself with a new card.

Other good human options are...

Thalia, Heretic Cathar --> I know she's been mentioned above, but she is relatively strong and a good attacker/blocker.

Harsh Mentor --> I never felt good with him in play, but if there are a ton of manlands in your meta or affinity, he is a fun card.

Mirran Crusader --> long time sideboard card lately turned main board due to the rise of Death's Shadow.

Doomed Traveler --> He does his job, chump and make a dude.

Aegis of the Gods --> Super Budget leyline of sanctity.

Ash Zealot --> A great sideboard card!

Ethersworn Canonist --> Another great sideboard card.

Hopefully this helps!

Gather the Townsfolk is fine. It looks weak, but really, it's an ok card - it works with Champion of the Parish, Thalia's Lieutenant, and increases the value of Mayor of Avabruck  Flip a bit. I still think you overdo it with the 1-cmc creatures. Nice to always have a 2-power creature in turn 1, but you get outmatched on creature quality way too fast, and some of them are bad topdecks later in the game.

Bite the bullet and get playable Aether Vials. You seriously will be glad you did, it's the main reason that humans have interaction and can go a longer game or play a faster aggro game. And since most can't afford Cavern of Souls right now, Vial covers the "uncounterable" part also. Get them ASAP because they WILL jump in price. Collected Company is good and all but most have learned it's not 'safe' in modern right now, it's easy to play around it.

Warden of the First Tree is a cute pet card, but it does not do enough, it's too threatening but at the same time extremely easy to just remove after a heavy mana investment and seems to be holding you back from using Unclaimed Territory.
Drop Gather the Townsfolk it's too low power at all, and just play your Auriok Champions mainboard and two other creatures.

Right now I play Allies, Degenerate Allies which is a high-power, fast-paced, almost combo deck (but that's what happens when a combo player builds an aggro deck)
And I'm looking at putting together High Priest Humans which may yield some other ideas for you. I do believe there are multiple ways to build different Humans decks but they are going to have a lot of overlap, competitively.
