I like this idea, but I feel it could be a little wilder, in BUDGET 3 COLOUR (yay!)
If you are playing taplands, Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds gives budget access to all colours, while tri-lands give access to 3 colours. Naya Panorama combined with Jungle Shrine and basics is about as reliable as your current base.
If you are having trouble with tempo, colourless 1 and 2 drops are good alongside panorama and land searching- if you already run draw spells to look for your combo, making up card disadvantage from Renegade Map isn't backbreaking.
Green gives access to budget fixing and ramp, letting you power out the mace/boss while swapping out the feather/clarion package.
Goblin tokens to go with prospector might help, with Kuldotha Rebirth taking advantage of artifact mana fixing- letting you go wide as a back up plan, letting you fight through the kind of removal these combo decks often have trouble with.
Breath of Fury is a spectacular alternative combo. It also lets you lean into a feather/heroic gameplan with cards like Akroan Crusader/Foundry Street Denizen. Alternatively, a more midrangey list with Brimaz, King of Oreskos or the rabblemasters. Haazda Marshal/Precinct Captain offers a low cost target.
Thorn Lieutenant should be fairly cheap rn.
Proliferate cards are budget and have strong interactions with the deck, doubling mace counters or +1+1s, so a backup plan featuring them and some random 'put a +1+1 counter' creatures will stack up pretty well.
Good luck and happy brewing.

Suns_Champion I’m thinking of putting in creatures like Hero of Bladehold and Precinct Captain since while they don’t make human creature tokens I do think the extra bodies and the battle cry ability could be useful.
Also maybe Kabira Vindicator since he is a good body that can turn into another anthem effect for my board.

Other 2-drop creatures in place of Shanna that you could consider:
A few overlap, e.g. Grim Flayer and Imperious Oligarch are also human. Of this list, I think three really stand out: Grim Flayer fits both of your strategies (multicolor and human), but I'm not sure you'll ever get delirium. Fleecemane Lion isn't a human, but it is multicolor and it's the traditional strongest 2-drop in Abzan. And Corpse Knight, which isn't human but works extremely well with Hero because it doesn't specify nontoken.

I think Light from Within is a good anthem for white decks since it can give bigger boosts to some of your creatures.
Mobilization will give your soldiers vigilance and gives you a mana sink to make more soldiers if you are ever not doing anything with your mana.
Daru Warchief will make soldiers cost less and give them a nice boost to power and toughness.
Precinct Captain makes some soldier creatures when he attacks.
Reverent Hoplite is a creature similar to heliod’s evangel that will give you soldiers equal to your devotion on board.

Finale of Glory may be something for a game ender or it can just give you some 2/2 soldier tokens.
Preeminent Captain can help you cheat out some soldiers.
Bastion Protector may be good to keep your commander protected from targeted removal.

I'd like to see more token generation in the lower slots- convoke payoffs are amazing, but cutting a few to get a threat on the board that can scare 3 mana plainswalkers is essential for pioneer. More raise the alarm, more marshal.
In terms of 1 drops, Legion's Landing Flip Hunted Witness , Cartouche of Solidarity , Skymarcher Aspirant / Snubhorn Sentry , Thraben Inspector exist. If you make bigger tokens, Wake the Reflections can work. Springleaf Drum helps power out low-mana creatures.
Voice of Resurgence is the strongest 2 drop available for this list.
Further up the curve, Launch the Fleet , Countless Gears Renegade / Servo Exhibition , Dwynen's Elite , Animation Module / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Hero of Precinct One , Lovestruck Beast , Murder Investigation Precinct Captain , Thorn Lieutenant , Westvale Abbey Flip and Hanweir Militia Captain Flip
In terms of sidebord, we'll see how the meta shapes up, but Alive / Well , Dryad Militant are worth looking at beside standard options. Druid's Deliverance if vannafar combo takes off. Sundering Growth as an artifact answer.

These are the cards I dont know if follows the aggro strategy (or quick growth) on your deck: Veteran Swordsmith , Veteran Armorsmith , Topan Freeblade , Soldier of the Pantheon , Precinct Captain (sometimes you wont be able to attack for two turns. He is better when you "haste" him), Loyal Cathar Flip (his other form escapes "human tribal", so he doesnt triggers lot of abbilities on the deck), Elite Vanguard , Archetype of Courage (cost 3 is too much, it may leave you without mana for Brave the Elements ).
Some options of cost 1: Hunted Witness , Akrasan Squire , Thraben Inspector and Ardent Recruit which would call for more artifacts and equipments. I think of him because I would use Ratchet Bomb . It is good against midrange enchantments, tokens, cretures and artifacts. And there are God-Pharaoh's Faithful and Novice Knight , they are perfect to be powered with aura and all sort of things (against red decks).
And there are plenty of lands that can help you draw, gives extra mana, enhance your creatures and are way under 3$. I hate to depend on luck, and I hate extra lands in hand, so I would use 20x lands, basic and non basic, plus 4x Secluded Steppe .

I would add more removal to the list
