Thraben Inspector Discussion

Actually, forgot one...
Tamiyo's Journal (Bygone Bishop & Thraben Inspector work wonders with this. The latter can be flickered an endless amount of times, & the former watching for CMC3 cards cast by me both give me a Clue(s). Get 3, & you can get a card for free! You can even flicker the Journal for huge value! You want Value Town? Someone at Twitter actually recommended this to me, & I know how to use it to Boros' max! I'll note that person after...)

Court Homunculus is the weakest of your one-drops, but he provides immediate metalcraft-count, while Thraben Inspector will also, and will put a decent body on the field. The next weakest would be Ardent Recruit, imho, because Auriok Glaivemaster's First Strike is much better.
That all being said I would personally recommend cutting the Homunculus in favor of the Inspector.
Even though nobody asked me, lol. =P

Dryad Militant in the side? Helps those storm and snapcaster matchups some. Kor Firewalker is nice for burn. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip is nearly a flat upgrade to Crusader of Odric. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a modern staple in creature lists, and should need no explanation. With a more midrange list I would run Militia Bugler or Legion Conquistador, as the card advantage is significant in the midrange mirror-match.
I feel like I'd either want to cut a little lower to the ground or build 'purer' midrange.
Leonin Warleader might work well in a W(g) 'go wide' Gavony Township strategy, and access to Loxodon Smiter is nice. Hero of Bladehold is similarly cute. Sigil Captain/Hardened Scales tokens might also be interesting as a tokens list.

I've been looking for a space for Thraben Inspector but I cant decide what's worth cutting for him. Ideas?

I think you should consider Hunted Witness and Doomed Traveler and Thraben Inspector to the deck. Adding creatures that replace them selves and creatures that grant card advantage might signifgantly help the build. Plus clue tokens count towards metalcraft.

For humans, you really need to know how to play the matchup (I have been playing this deck for 5 months), and although they have ETBs, Eldrazi Displacer is one of your best cards in this matchup. You just have to be careful about your timing, and flicker everything before flickering a Champion of the Parish, or flicker everything after flickering Thalia's Lieutenant.
I might also advise a pair of Auriok Champion instead of the Kor Firewalker and Kataki, War's Wage. I also think that you could use another Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Gideon is just a powerhouse in almost all midrange and control matchups, and Kambal makes burn a good matchup.
