Hello Bramdal thank you for the suggestions.

I think Thraben Inspector is slow for this deck. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben probably in sideboard. Charming Prince, he can bounce Thalia's Lieutenant and soldier and knight protecting a noble why not ! haha I like the idea but I prefer focus on humans/soldiers/knights in priority. Militia Bugler could be nice to retrieve some cards but I probably go for Benalish Marshal. Basri's Lieutenant seems nice but not in the mainboard.

Concerning the cards you would cut :

Akrasan Squire and Fiendslayer Paladin will be in first line. Martial Coup will follow but not yet decided the substitution. Launch the Fleet is the signature card of this deck :) Wing Shards don't know yet. Knight Exemplar will replace Fiendslayer Paladin

a few suggestions:
Thraben Inspector,
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben,
Charming Prince,
Militia Bugler,
Benalish Marshal,
Basri's Lieutenant(4 Mana might be to high, but he is really nice with Thalia's Lieutenant.

cards i would consider to cut:
Wing Shards,
Launch the Fleet,
Martial Coup,
Akrasan Squire,
Fiendslayer Paladin (exept you know, your opponents gonna play red or black, otherwise this would be better in a sideboard, maybe together with Mirran Crusader),
Knight Exemplar (I think your knight count is to low),

Looks really good for a first commander deck!

you might benefit from something like White Sun's Zenith or Martial Coup?

maybe drop Lifeforce unless your playgroup runs heavy black decks.

where's Beast Within?!

but +1 for going to commander! :)

Oh, also you might have enough stuff that gives counters to include a few proliferate spells. If so, I'd recommend Volt Charge, Martyr for the Cause, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Grim Affliction.

On a side note, it has always really bugged me that Martial Coup makes Soldier tokens, but not Human Soldier tokens. If it did, it would have been my number one suggestion. But it doesn't, and that stinks.

Anyway, ok, that's all I got.

So I really like this decklist so far and I can see you have put a lot of time into it. Have you tried putting in more humans that make non human tokens? Cards like, Evangel of Heliod, Knight-Captain of Eos, Silverwing Squadron and, Hero of Bladehold could be really strong editions in this catagory.

This deck seems like it is ultra agressive, which I feel Boros and espically Winota want to be but, have you looked at putting a few more devensive cards in the deck? Cards like Frontline Medic, Odric, Master Tactician, Legion's Initiative, and Unbreakable Formation could help to ward off boardwipes and help your creatures get combat damage through. I also think, Angel of Glory's Rise could be a really strong late game finisher after a large chuck of your humans have been killed.

Lastly, you said you are not running a lot of boardwipes but, why specifically did you chose to run Fumigate over cards like Cleansing Nova or Austere Command? I feel like one of the later two sweepers are stronger than Fumigate because of their ability to hit artifacts and enchantments also. Have you considered Martial Coup? 7 mana is a lot for a sweeper but, being left with 5 soldiers that you could use to get 5 Winota triggers the next turn could win you the game on the spot depending on what you draw.

Overall I think you have done a fantastic job so far and I am excited we finally get a true Boros commander!

Martial Coup, and Secure the Wastes seem appropriate.

There are a bunch of cool low cmc humans/soldiers that make for fun games. Older synergies like Preeminent Captain/Ballyrush Banneret/Cenn's Tactician/Veteran's Armaments exist, cards like Akroan Crusader/Hero of the Nyxborn enable token/buff strategies with target spells, Ancestral Blade Strength of Arms and Auriok Steelshaper enable equipment synergy, Boros Keyrune is cute tribal ramp, recent Standard has a bunch of soldier tokens kicking around, from Forbidden Friendship to Garrison Cat to Haazda Marshal, older formats have cards that have fallen out of favour like Goblin Trenches while newer sets have cards that didn't see play like Memorial to Glory, there are infinite combos out there with Patrol Signaler, Timely Reinforcements/Even the Odds/Martial Coup is a thing.

Humans/soldiers is amazing because it is incredibly flexible in casual play. You can play a singleton deck, still have a deck that feels great to play, while the people facing you don't know whether you built a Haazda Marshal/Breath of Fury combo list ,a Haze of Rage go wide, Cauldron Haze midrange or Gather the Townsfolk brinksmanship/control.

Don't worry too hard about what exactly goes into the list, just worry about the curve being about right and filling it with fun cards. Things like Palace Sentinels/Throne Warden can be amazing fun despite being unsuitable for competitive play.
