I'd cut Hall of Triumph for Honor of the Pure or any of the other white enchantment anthems. Right now Vandalblast hurts you really badly, and not being completely dead in the water after a Vandalblast would help. At the very least Spear of Heliod is better.

If you're looking for additional cuts for the new C17 cards, I'd also cut Key to the City for Alms Collector. The mana curve is probably also low enough to warrant cutting a land.

I would replace the paladin with Precinct Captain(soldier creature type and token generator). Maybe sideboard Archetype of Courage in case you run into another soldier deck. Frontline Medic (indestructible swarm) and Benalish Commander (token generator) wouldn't be bad adds either. Chariot of Victory seems a little redundant if you're running Field Marshal. I'm not an expert when it comes to equipment, but I'd say you want your equipment to focus mainly on p/t buffs and combat abilities. Neko-Te, Fireshrieker, and Kusari-Gama are some of my personal favorites. Cranial Plating and Leonin Bola could be nice as well. Spear of Heliod is some nice handy removal.

Hope this helps!

Let's see.

Assemble the Legion, Mycoloth, Avenger of Zendikar for token generators.

Sterling Grove, Sphere of Safety, Ghostly Prison for protection.

Aura Mutation and Artifact Mutation for removal AND gives tokens.

Marshal's Anthem for another Anthem + recursion.

Spear of Heliod for yet another anthem AND removal!

I think it would be better bringing it really low to the ground.

.:.TL;DR at the bottom.:.

As Kyln said, Field Marshall is a great lord effect. I also think that Evnagel of Heliod is too expensive mana-wise, and have that many 6-drops in the deck can lead to some hands when those cards just get stuck in your hand because you can't cast them.

I see 2 different routes the deck might be shaping up to go: 1) White Weenie, little dudes who are aggressive, hit early, and scale late. 2) Tokens, which can swarm the board and overpower the opponent's spot removal.

For the white weenie strategy, you'd want to lower the curve to around 2.5 CMC on average. I'd suggest cards like Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant for good soldier/human synergy, as well as the Honor of the Pure mentioned by Kyln.

As for the tokens strategy, cards like Raise the Alarm and Brimaz, King of Oreskos (which you already have) are all stars. Intangible Virtue can also be played here, either as a replacement or alongside Honor of the Pure as additional anthem effects. In this case your anthems are going to be even more important, as your tokens are just 1/1's, so even things like Spear of Heliod are good enough to give your team a boost, and you might even consider Daru Warchief or Celestial Crusader (just remember that the Crusader gives ALL white creatures +1/+1).

Lastly, I think there are 2 cards very worth mentioning. The first is Thraben Inspector. The card is very unassuming, but in white you don't get the kind of card draw you can in other colors, and the one clue (or more if you find more inspectors) can help you keep drawing gas and pressuring your opponents. And the second card is Brave the Elements. This is not only the best protection spell you can have, but is also a great finisher.

If you go White Weenies:
-2 Hundred-handed One
-2 Evangel of Heliod
-4 Eidolon of Countless Battles
-3 Gold Myr
-4 Leyline of the Meek
-1 True Conviction
-2 Cathars' Crusade
-2 Elspeth, Sun's Champion
+4 Champion of the Parish
+4 Honor of the Pure
+3 Thalia's Lieutenant
+3 Brave the Elements
+2 Field Marshal
+4 Thraben Inspector

For a tokens approach:
-4 Eidolon of Countless Battles
-3 Gold Myr
-2 Cathars' Crusade
-2 Hundred-handed One
-2 Plains
-2 Archetype of Courage
-1 True Conviction
-2 Evangel of Heliod
+4 Precinct Captain
+4 Raise the Alarm
+3 Intangible Virtue
+2 Honor of the Pure
+1 Spear of Heliod
+3 Brave the Elements
+1 Celestial Crusader

Hope this helped. The numbers are always up for debate, but I think lowering the curve will lead to more games won. Your creatures are inherently less powerful than other colors, but humans have a high level of synergy and support. Both mono-white strategies have been around for a long time, and there are plenty of options based on which cards you enjoy playing.

I would pull out your 2 Dictate of Heliods and run 1 more land and 1 more Spear of Heliod.

I'd consider taking out Spear of Heliod in favor of the Return to the Ranks or something similar. If you really want the effect, I'd go with Honor of the Pure. It doesn't work on 2 creatures (6 cards total), but it comes down a turn earlier or you can play it and another 1 drop on turn 3.

Since you're fairly new, just a little reminder. If you Return to the Ranks multiple Thalia's Lieutenants, they all trigger together, so they give counters as well as get counters for every human entering the battlefield at the same time. It's a glorious sight.
