My friend runs an orzhov version of this deck that has consistently placed at fnms and like competitions. You really want to load the deck with creatures with key words, that are lower CMC, so once turn 4 hits you can odric with a field of insanely strong creatures. Lone Rider Flip for example should definitely be in here as a 2 drop with first strike, lifelink. Plus when he flips you add trample to the mix.
I found his most consistent combo to be giving his entire field first strike, death touch. So if you can work death touch in somewhere it will kill just about every other creature-based deck.

I'd say keep out the entire reanimation package if you are not running Gifts Ungiven, Collective Brutality or similar cards to dump your creatures and Unburial Rites into the graveyard (Animate Dead is also not Modern legal). It's also a bit counterintuitive with Heartless Summoning, as that only works if you cast the creatures themselves. Odric, Lunarch Marshal is a win-more card. If you have 2-3 creatures on the battlefield to really take advantage of him, you should pretty much have won the game by that point anyways, since all of them are really powerful. Lone Rider Flip is a bit unreliable also, it doesn't really align with the rest of your gameplan too much. Angelic Purge has better alternatives and you want to keep your permanents, since all of them are very valuable. Oblivion Ring for example, is already way better. The Sorin planeswalkers are a bit outclassed by Liliana and Gideon walkers outside of token decks, but it should be allright.
Now as to what you should add instead: You need a way to keep the enemy under control until you have enough mana to cast your big creatures. Therefore, you need boardwipes like Wrath of God or Damnation, probably 3 or 4 even. Fatal Push and Path to Exile are also important in keeping you alive early, or you will get run over by aggressive creatures like Death's Shadow. Blessed Alliance is good because it kills something and can gain you an additional turn through Lifegain. What you also want is some copies of Inquisition of Kozilek in the mainboard so you can do something about your opponent's strategy and removal spells. Phyrexian Metamorph is generally a strong card in Heartless Summoning decks, it effectively costs you 1 mana to copy any of your big creatures, which is a great deal. Myr Superion is also often seen in such decks, but can a bit unreliable. If it all comes together you get a really powerful creature on Turn 2 though.

I do enjoy the suggestion Kyln, Lone Rider Flip Could replace Nyx-Flece Ram for health gain and a good attacker. Hearld of War on the other hand is essential to get angels and human out faster. Angels will always be costly. She keeps the deck moving and is your main attacker since she buffs herself. Thank you for your suggestion. :)

Well lay out the deck and tell me how many white card and how many red card you have
That sounds like some good places to upgrade, Thalia, Heretic Cathar was definitely a good pick, first strike is powerful with always watching and she stops Glorybringers and slows lands down as she makes their duels come in tapped.

And now, with these changes, how would you go about lands? I struggle to crack the number of how many I need to optimize the deck.

Damn! All your suggestions sound really good. Thanks for taking the time.
So, i visited my shop today and i managed to get these:
3x Thalia, Heretic Cathar (thought it could be a pretty nice beater for the deck, plus i found them really cheap)
2x Lone Rider
I might not have a use for all the creatures but I wanted to experiment with different possible combinations.
What do you think?

Also if you wanna keep it budget, pick up some Solemn Recruits as they scale great with Always Watching And maybe also get Lone Rider because you are able to flip him with Glory-Bound Initiate and Blessed Alliance and once he is flipped he is very powerful
