I think you have too many creatures. I'd cut Goldnight Commander for some disruption: Faith's Shield, Gods Willing, Beast Within, Prey Upon, Lignify, Journey to Nowhere, Celestial Flare, etc, etc. There's lots of options, really and some of them could go in the sideboard, too. (like Celestial Flare). You should also fill out the sideboard with spells like: Disenchant/Revoke Existence/Naturalize/Creeping Corrosion, Back to Nature, Pithing Needle, Oblivion Ring, Elixir of Immortality, Ratchet Bomb, Plummet, Contagion Engine, Hour of Revelation, Planar Outburst, etc, etc.

For the second part, time stamps don't matter. With Lifeline even if the creatures die at different times, it's not until the end step where the delayed triggered abilities actually trigger that you actually put the abilities on the stack and choose their relative order. At the End Step you'll look at all the creatures that Lifeline is going to return and pick an order for them to return in. One by one you'll return them.

As for the third part, with Warstorm Surge when a creature returns it will trigger both Goldnight Commander and Warstorm Surge. You'll choose the order those abilities go on the stack, and obviously have Goldnight Commander's ability resolve first, the Warstorm Surge's. This will let you eek out one more damage, but both abilities will have to resolve before the next creature enters, so you won't be getting the massive boost to damage you want. If all the creatures came back at once (like if you were returning them all with a Twilight's Call) you'd be able to stack all the Warstorm Surge triggers under all the Goldnight Commander triggers to give all the creatures the full boost before all the damage was dealt.

The first problem is how are the creatures returned? Lifeline requires a creature to still be on the battlefield surviving the board wipe to trigger at all. The next issue is that Lifeline creates separate delayed triggered abilities for each creature. What this means is at the beginning of the next end step an ability will be put onto the stack for each creature that died. Each creature that enters after Goldnight Commander returns to the battlefield will trigger its ability and cause all previous creatures to get that boost, but not ones that return after it. The third issue is that the boost only lasts until end of turn, and its being applied during the end step so it is unlikely to be relevant as you won't be able to attack or block.

I am playing with Lifeline, a board-wipe occurs.

Goldnight Commander and X other creatures are returned to the battlefield.

Will Goldnight Commander's ability "Whenever another creature enters the battlefield under your control, creatures you control get +1/+1 until end of turn." trigger for those other creatures entering?

Thank you for your time.

Maybe a couple of low costing elves might help like Gyre Sage, Llanowar Elves, Arbor Elf and Elvish Mystic might help you ramp and help trigger stuff like Cathars' Crusade and Goldnight Commander. Also Hardened Scales might be a good addition as well.

ClockworkSwordfish I agree about Goldnight Commander, but Solemn Recruit has actually done really well in my meta. Costly Plunder is pretty good too, a lot of my creatures have ETB effects so I'd like to keep that in.

I've updated it by removing a couple cards that weren't pulling their weight. Goldnight Commander i can't believe I haven't seen yet. That card should be a staple for token decks. Nevertheless the token production should remain about the same as before, with the added benefit of more powerful tokens. I've loved how this deck has turned out, and am soon going to actually buy and build it in real life.

I can't believe nobody has suggested Glorious Anthem or Goldnight Commander yet.

Kabira Vindicator is a knight but maybe?

Path of Bravery is kinda cute but worth a look, same with Leonin Sun Standard

I would definitely cut raise the alarm, for Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares. The alarm seems way too low impact, and you need some removal in there...swords is on theme as well.
