Not bad. There's definitely a lot of synergy here. Here are some cards you might want to consider: Mother of Runes for protection, Weathered Wayfarer and Solemn Simulacrum for some more land insurance/ramp, Geist-Honored Monk and Angel of Invention are both great token generators on bodies, Path to Exile and Oblation are both decent spot removal. I also very much like Grasp of Fate as it exiles something from each of your opponents. Mind Stone and Hedron Archive are both nice mana rocks that can turn into cards when you need them. Finally, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar has become a lot more affordable since it rotated out and works great with your deck.
Cards I would consider cutting since they are either not that good or too slow for what they do: Court Street Denizen, Frontline Medic, God-Favored General, Intrepid Hero, Precinct Captain, Requiem Angel, Twilight Drover, Call for Unity, Gideon's Intervention, Mobilization, Deploy to the Front.

Going to try removing the tokens + mass death package because it's clumsy and unfun. No more:
Substituting in some more interactive cards:

Removed 'Other' Category, all cards belong to at least one custom category - many belong to more than one to reflect the card's potential, even if it's not the main purpose it's being considered.
Still need to remove stuff pretty badly, so criticisms/rulings on what isn't especially useful (such as Mobilization, which only makes human solider tokens, instead of the more clearly useful Elves) are welcome.

feyn_do_alduin: I agree! This deck can be very, very aggressive (and terrifying to play against). I've hit people for 36 damage on T3 before - there's a reason that, while this isn't my most competitive deck, it's certainly my most feared at my LGS.
TzickyT: Yeah, I'm afraid that's a classic problem with voltron decks. If you don't have a creature to suit up, your equipment sits around being sad. You could try Haunted Plate Mail or something, or something like Mobilization (which I think is better than Heliod) if you have problems with this a lot.
Gearlyons: Honestly? I've considered it before, and played it for a while. It's not currently in the list because I find it slightly situational, but I could definitely see the case for its inclusion :) What would you cut for it?

Hey if you don't mind I have some questions and suggestions for you. I love soldiers and have a deck of them as well! So I think this deck would see a lot of help from both Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Gideon can ult immediately and Elspeth makes a bunch of tokens. Other cards that would work here are spot removal cards like Journey to Nowhere and Disenchant, Path to Exile,Oblivion Ring, Unified Strike I think they do more than Argentum Armor because it takes so long to get use out of it. And maybe a Wrath of God or the like as well. Some other creatures that would work well if interested are Elite Vanguard, Preeminent Captain, Precinct Captain, Mentor of the Meek, Veteran Swordsmith, and Veteran Armorsmith I do think that since you only have five equipments as well that Auriok Steelshaper seems underwhelming here. Anointed Procession and Mobilization are also great here as well. The main questions I have are, is budget an issue at all and what is your meta like and also how is the deck performing? Because knowing that could change the above quite drastically. What do you think?

When playing this deck I tend to run for Humility, focusing my strategy around it. As it stands I noticed a tendency to cast creatures that end up being useless. To avoid this I might very well reduce my creatures to a somewhat bare minimum and add more non-creature spells. Some of them being token producers, getting more creatures for the same amount of mana.
An update will be done before next weekend.

RubyOrzhov - The deck didn't start out to expensive, but its been one I play and tweak the most over the past couple of years. Looking at it now yikes, lol. Snow-Covered Plains are important for Sunstone, but you can ditch Scrying Sheets if you're trying to knock down the budget. Kor Haven can slot in for the Maze of Ith for a couple of bucks cheaper, and it taps for mana (or more straight up removal like Condemn works too!). Glacial Chasm is a new edition, but before then it was just a plains and I was still running a Selfless Squire as another fog. Serra's Sanctum is completely non-essential. I'm not even running enough enchantments to get as much value from it as I'd like.
Land Tax and Tithe can be Gift of Estates and Oreskos Explorer. Temporary Truce is from Portal so it costs a few bucks because of that, but for much less you can run Truce, which is the instant version of it. Or just slot back in the Mentor of the Meek I took out. Angel of Finality can be Stonecloaker. In the general theme, you can run Mobilization and Knight-Captain of Eos for a nice repeatable fog as well. This works well if you've got out a way to protect the Captain.
Academy Rector and Crucible of Worlds are the two expensive cards I put the closest to be needed, but you can work around that too. Just the way EDH works there's still cards I've NEVER drawn in the deck, so I can't say any one is completely needed unless its the actual wincon. Plea for Guidance is your budget Idyllic Tutor or Rector. And White has enough ways to find land (including Eternal Dragon) that CoW is just something nice to have if you can run it.
Thanks for the comment, I hadn't really taken the time to think about a more budget friendly version of this lately!
