Tainted Field isn't modern legal.

A white splash is totally viable.

White has arguably the best sideboard cards in the format. Stony Silence is great in the early game vs Tron too.

Rest in Peace, Leyline of Sanctity, Ghostly Prison, Soul Tithe, Hushwing Gryff, Suppression Field, Nevermore, Timely Reinforcements, etc

best cards in soul sisters are Serra Ascendant and Martyr of Sands, thats why its an "aggro" deck cuz it can play a 6/6 turn 1, you're missing both and only have the sisters, how do you plan on winning outside of pridemate?

Mentor of the Meek is a good draw card, and Champion of the Parish is a cheaper cmc ajani pridemate

Ranger of Eos tutors most creatures in the deck

Kor Firewalker and Auriok Champion are insanely good sideboard cards, and Lingering Souls and Timely Reinforcements are good ways to overrun with tokens and gain loads of life,

splashing red you can run 1 or 2 Norin the Wary if you want virtually untouchable etb soul sisters life on both end steps, and it combos well with pridemate, cotparish and Impact Tremors

if you need more control and defense vs combo you can run stuff like Thoughtseize, more copies of Inquisition of Kozilek, Surgical Extraction/ExtirpateLightning Bolt/helix, Boros Charm

sideboard you're also gonna want Stony Silence and/or Kataki, War's Wage for affinity and Rest in Peace for graveyard hate

Swap out Honored Crop-Captain for Akroan Hoplite to keep the soldier theme.

Maybe find some space for Veteran Swordsmith?

What about one or two Timely Reinforcements for sideboard?

If you're looking to specifically hose burn you could definitely use all 4 Timely Reinforcements, Kor Firewalker, and Circle of Protection: Red. Also, Story Circle and Leyline of Sanctity are cards.

As said before by thehat an indicative budget could help when searching for cards that cuold be add to your deck.

Lingering Souls and Raise the Alarm are very good cards. I'd prefer them to Timely Reinforcements (remember that you need to have less creatures than your opponent or Timely Reinforcements won't give you any token).

As for the lands: consider some Flooded Strand. Personally I don't like so much Moorland Haunt and Forbidding Watchtower and, in my opinion, you should reduce them to 20 in order to don't see them too often. Moorland Haunt is a land that provides you colorless mana and needs 2 specifical mana and a creature in a your graveyard to put a 1/1 token, Forbidding Watchtower enters tapped and needs 2 mana to became a 1/5 creature. Furthermore, I'll reduce to 2 the Mystic Gate. If you don't want to spend money on Flooded Strand consider Glacial Fortress.

I'd cut Acrobatic Maneuver that needs 3 mana cast and you will just use it to bounce a creature and get a +1 +1 on Champion of the Parish or Thalia's Lieutenant if one of them is on the battlefield. If you really want to go this plan I'd add Essence Flux or Ghostly Flicker.

Personally I don't like Silver-Inlaid Dagger. If you want to boost your creatures I'd choose Honor of the Pure.

Another good card you could consider, if your opponent plays lot of creatures, is Ghostly Prison. If you want to control more the board an option could be Detention Sphere or Path to Exile. Wrath of God is a good card but consider also Supreme Verdict.

As for Beguiler of Wills, I understand you really like it, so won't ask you to cut it.

Thank you both for the tips!

I've reworked the deck a bit, throwing in a lot of the cards mentioned but also making some new choices of me own.

Do you think Timely Reinforcements is a good choice over the Lingering Souls, Raise the Alarm, and Beckon Apparition? I thought it had good synergy with the life cost cards that are in now and also would possibly let me boost my creatures back up quick should I need to use Wrath of God, which I think was a great suggestion.

I can see what you mean with Thraben Doomsayer. I like the suggestion of Doomed Traveler because I get to keep a creature on the board when he dies and he's very cheap, meaning he'll be easy to play if I need an extra body to flip Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip. I like Brimaz, King of Oreskos's abilities, but I don't like how he thematically fits into the deck.

Since I'm not quite as hyper focused on Human tokens with the new suggestions, I chose Honor of the Pure between the two mentioned. This should boost almost all of my creatures. Additionally, I replaced Elgaud Shieldmate with Veteran Armorer as he's cheaper and continues the boosting theme for all of my other creatures.

I went with Dissolve for my second counter, do you think it's a better choice? I like the idea of largely removing a card rather than just delaying it a turn. I think I have decent enough card draw with Cryptic Command and my 4 Curiosity to lose that aspect, and I like the small, extra Scry effect.

I noticed in playtest that I was somethimes having trouble getting the color I needed mana-wise, so I also threw in a bunch of Hallowed Fountains and extra Mystic Gates. Do you think these are smart choices?

Thank you again!

Its hard to give suggestions on sideboards because every local meta is different but here are some general suggestions

Affinity-Wear, Smash to Smithereens, Shattering Spree, Hurkyl's Recall, Shatterstorm

Storm-Counterflux, Mindbreak Trap

Control-Negate, Dispel, Spell Pierce

Burn-Kor Firewalker, Timely Reinforcements

Eldrazi-Deflecting Palm

Valakut, Tron-Molten Rain

Devoted Druid, Tokens-Izzet Staticaster

Also, Opt may be better in your deck since its an instant and can protect your Exemplars

Spazik008 on Sapping Souls

if you need more sideboard cards Leyline of Sanctity stops Lava Spike, Thoughtseize and Gifts Ungiven. And with both Lingering Souls and Timely Reinforcements I would highly recommend a Gideon, Ally of Zendikar at the 4 drop slot. Not sure what to cut for him though, but he should have some room in here.
