Hanweir Militia Captain Discussion

Hello! I really like the idea. Some suggestions. Radiant Destiny boosts your Soldiers and gives them vigilance. Anointed Procession doubles your tokens. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip transforms quickly. Adanto Vanguard is nice when attacking. Conqueror's Pledge to bring more Soldiers to the battlefield. Collective Effort to make them stronger and to deal with big creatures. Vanquisher's Banner seems to be nice in this decklist too.

In my opinion Tireless Tracker isn't very good, I recommend Shanna, Sisay's Legacy or Hanweir Militia Captain Flip over it. Reflector Mage and Meddling Mage are plenty of disruption, so I think Thalia, Guardian of Thraben should still be sideboard, or at the very least a two-of, considering she's a legendary and you can only have one on the board. You wouldn't want to draw three of her in one game anyway. I've played a fair bit of G/W Human tribal, and it's incredible to swing with creatures that are absolutely slathered in +1/+1 counters (like 10+).

I'm not sure just how tight your budget is, but I can see a number of easy ways to make some little improvements!
If you only go for a single nonbasic land, then Emeria, The Sky Ruin is an excellent choice for providing late-game value. Kjeldoran Outpost and Daru Encampment are also good options, as are Secluded Steppe and Drifting Meadow if you draw them late game when you don't need any more lands.
Djeru seems like a very... odd choice if you don't have any planeswalkers. I think that Thraben Doomsayer, Riders of Gavony or Devout Chaplain could all serve you better. By the way, are you sure Hada Freeblade and Kazandu Blademaster are worth it if they are the only two allies in the deck? You might be better off with Champion of the Parish and Hanweir Militia Captain Flip - or Elite Inquisitor, if you liked the Blademaster's abilities. Thraben Inspector or Thraben Standard Bearer could also be run over Champion of the Parish if budget is an issue.

Thanks for the upvote and the suggestions! Let me run through them real quick...
Launch the Fleet: I'll be honest, I'm not wild about this card in this deck. It requires that I already have a fair number of soldiers to be useful and have a lot of mana to spare, so it feels very "win more" to me. Getting soldiers on attack seems fine, but they won't count towards the number that turn or anything. Still, a good thought with alot of surface level synergy.
Crusader of Odric: I actually had this card in the deck until just before I released it, at which point it was traded out for Hanweir Militia Captain Flip. It is a nice big creature, but for almost all of the big creatures their size is just a fringe benefit for working with our strategy. The only exception is Gideon's Avenger, who should end up much larger after only a couple turns.
Honor of the Pure: Some printings of this card are actually available within the price range of the deck, which surprised me! The only issue iss which card to take out for it, since it isn't strictly better than any anthems we have... maybe Veteran Armorsmith, though I'm loathe to give up the extra body.
Vanquisher's Banner: This would be great for the deck for sure, but is well outside of the intended budget. Maybe someday, but not today.
Loreseeker's Stone: I'm surprised I had never heard of this card. That said, it seems even worse than Dawn of Hope. You have to sink in at least 9 mana (probably more) to start drawing at all, and the mechanics of the card make using it repeatedly cost extra unless you wait to be empty handed. I'll keep it in mind if I find it needs more draw cards after further playtesting, but I don't see this replacing any current draw.

Dryad Militant in the side? Helps those storm and snapcaster matchups some. Kor Firewalker is nice for burn. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip is nearly a flat upgrade to Crusader of Odric. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a modern staple in creature lists, and should need no explanation. With a more midrange list I would run Militia Bugler or Legion Conquistador, as the card advantage is significant in the midrange mirror-match.
I feel like I'd either want to cut a little lower to the ground or build 'purer' midrange.
Leonin Warleader might work well in a W(g) 'go wide' Gavony Township strategy, and access to Loxodon Smiter is nice. Hero of Bladehold is similarly cute. Sigil Captain/Hardened Scales tokens might also be interesting as a tokens list.
