5 color?!? Now I know your crazy, but 5 color crazy? ;). Well I think you need to have equipments that are made for humans like Bladed Bracers, True-Faith Censer and Silver-Inlaid Dagger and if you like scarescrows Harvest Hand  Flip. Then we need some bad-ass humans. I'll just say one human per color to keep it simple. My favorite human/white is Elite Inquisitor, forget the protection, a 2/2 two drop with first strike and vigilance is tight. A great red would be Kessig Malcontents or Riot Ringleader. Green human could be Hamlet Captain or a super badass human Warden of the First Tree. Blue human Captain of the Mists. black human Village Cannibals. Those are just a few. Out of all honesty I think it might be a little ambitious to try 5 color humans m. 3 color might be a happy medium that won't leave you super frustrated trying to make it work ;)

Thanks for the tips. I honestly overlooked that i didn't get rid of Might Makes Right, it was just an idea and when I played with the deck, I didn't even use it. I replaced it with another Kessig Malcontents. Hero of Bladehold seems really nice, but the card is quite expensive and creates soldier tokens, you could say that Hanweir Garrison is the same card but slightly better due to synergies (Champion of the Parish, Thalia's Lieutenant and Vigilante Justice). Accorder Paladin seems really nice, maybe as a substitute for Precinct Captain.

Bueller on Wow, a Soldier Deck Huh? How Original!

I've thought about that. I was going to leave it up to my first real playtest before doing that. I mainly like it because it's a decent ping that will proc every turn with Norin the Wary and Splinter Twin drops as a way of dealing noncombat damage, which this deck lacks outside of that and Kessig Malcontents.

I've also toyed with the idea of adding one of the soul sisters because of the sheer number of creatures I'll be having, but have decided against it so far.

I really like Impact Tremors! Unruly Mob seems like an okay backup plan if I am forced to attack instead of waiting for big Kessig Malcontents. I knew that somebody would suggest Champion of the Parish, and I planned to use it, until I saw the cost of the card :(. I am not really sure if I want to spend so much on one card. I will think about it. Thanks for the suggestions.

This was definitely a deck when it was in Standard.

Sam Pardee wrote this article on Human Reanimator that's reminiscent of Oops! All Spells in Legacy.

Fiend Hunter + human sac outlet + Angel of Glory's Rise = infinite loop to do whatever nonsense you want. Burning-Tree Emissary/Wild Cantor for infinite mana? Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip for infinite life and 2/2s? Death Cultist for the win?

I think the main shell of the deck is going to be:

4x Unburial Rites
4x Angel of Glory's Rise
4x Fiend Hunter
4x Cartel Aristocrat
4x Faithless Looting
4x Tormenting Voice
4x Goblin Lore
4x Golgari Grave-Troll (for maximum self-mill)

Your win conditions are between:

Now that I think about it, I might have to build this deck myself...

This looks pretty fun to play. I tried making my human deck RW a few years ago because I really liked the idea of it. Looks like you've got this honed pretty well, but I figure it doesn't hurt to make suggestions.

These all cost 3 mana though (Shrine's ability costs 3), so maybe they'd be too slow. I was going to suggest Grim Lavamancer, but I see you had one and removed it. Was it too slow to be worthwhile?

Cards you may want to add that and why

Angel of Jubilation good for your angel theme and also for your weenie theme

Angelic Purge all around decent to good removal which is extremely important in EDH

Blasphemous Act very good boardwipe

Cathars' Crusade MUST include for any weenie deck that has white

Divine Reckoning Another good boardwipe

Eerie Interlude is a maybe due to the fact that it can be used to avoid board wipes or force one sided boardwipes

Entreat the Angels straight up wincon

Fiend Hunter pretty much o-ring on a stick

Geist-Honored Monk great card for weenie strategy

Intangible Virtue could be very good with all the tokens you will be producing

Mikaeus, the Lunarch it fits the flavor very well by being the Lunarch and it fits the weenie theme

Silverblade Paladin could be amazing for your deck and can be used as a win con with gisela hitting for 20 commander damage.

Terminus potential board wipe

Thalia's Lieutenant works like champion with the upside of also hitting all you creature if you already have a lot of tokens or creatures

Cards that you may want to remove and why

Dauntless Cathar and Nearheath Chaplain there are much better token generators and it takes the place of a better card plus the tokens are not even human

Kessig Malcontents all around a meh card that just doesn't really meet par

Riot Ringleader again meh with not enough upside to justify putting it in the deck

Oppressive Rays great card in most causal formats but not really EDH

Vigilante Justice in reality it just doesn't do as much as you really want it to do and will be a dead card

Lightning Axe could be good but I think you can find better options

Rush of Adrenaline and Strength of Arms meh cards that may just end up being dead cards which are worse

Neglected Heirloom  Flip not enough uses for it and ends up being a dead card many times

Thatcher Revolt could be good but in my opinion could be replaced with a stronger card
