Tips on your White Soldiers deck Topan Freeblade is hella good take out War Falcon, go down to 18 plains or less your curve is pretty low if you go down to 18 and take out the Falcons you can add 4 Freeblades.
What happened to Captain of the Watch
Dusk / Dawn 3, more removal and lets you get all your weenies back
Stony Silence 2, good against artifacts and Affinity
Soul Warden 3, life gain and a lot of it since you can spam creatures
Swords to Plowshares 3, good against midrange or aggro, its another path to exile basically

Casual is fine, but I would suggest picking a format and building with it in mind. You have Modern selected, but cards like Daru Warchief aren't in it. If you do decide to make the deck modern however, I would suggest making it more aggresive with: War Falcon, Raise the Alarm, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Metallic Mimic, and more copies of Precinct Captain. Finally, if you need removal, Path to Exile is a great modern staple

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.
Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

Hey LegoAztec, am glad you liked it. If you have some soldiers around there are many good ones i havent included. For you can get Dryad Militant, Elite Vanguard, Thraben Inspector, Cenn's Tactician or something that benefits from soldiers like War Falcon. For cmc 3 Veteran Swordsmith and Veteran Armorsmith are solid choices. Archetype of Courage might come in handy or you might prefer Rhox Pikemaster. Benalish Commander is also a solid choice and most Lords can find a place in the deck. Pacifism and some other cheap removal might sound good if you are looking for budget. If you like more the idea of tokens there are many spells out there which bring forth 1, 2, 3, or X soldiers to battle, also if you spash some for Assemble the Legion, it is a lot of fun.

In this deck, Windbrisk Heights is a win-more, the creatures here are mostly 2+ drops, and no tokens, so the 3 attackers is a sign of a win-condition. Windbrisk Heights can be used for card advantage, if reveals/scry are in play (move the bad cards to the bottom.) but with things like Aether Vial for mana, it won't be properly used.
If this deck ran Raise the Alarm/Gather the Townsfolk, or a bunch of one-drops (Dryad Militant, Soldier of the Pantheon, Dragon Hunter, Elite Vanguard, Expedition Envoy, Kytheon, Hero of Akros, Loyal Pegasus, War Falcon, etc.) then Windbrisk Heights would work, but for now it won't.

I have one suggestion (for the synergies):
-4 War Falcon
You need more red creatures for Foundry Street Denizen to trigger
You need more hasty threats to bash in while decks are looking for removal.
Goblin Bushwhacker is a 1 CMC beater that randomly steal games between turns 2-5 when the opponent is not expecting him.
Playtest the deck with the Bush Whackers and see what you are losing to and what you are beating. Design the SB to beat your bad matchups.

if you wanna go for more T1 plays then you should consider more 1mana creatures.
more Student of Warfare
Birds of Paradise
Gravecrawler / Bloodsoaked Champion / Dread Wanderer
to name a few.
that is the aggro-ish midrange way to go.If you are interested in full control yeah Duress effects ARE the way to go for 1.
Just Consider this: you do have a generally strong finisher(Knight of the Reliquary) but it is a "finisher" either focus on completely stop their actions before that or trade creatures with them that you can summon back.
either Duress their Rest in Peace from hand or go so much aggro that they regret even bringing them to the game.
For me Cryptbreaker + Gravecrawler is the way to punish my opponent when they mullied to 5 to play Rest in Peace agaisnt me.
(of course i always play 4x Ratchet Bomb vs Grave Hate but still i punish them).
Finally at least keep 1 Crib Swap in sb for those Goyf's / Death's Shadows.
Hope i helped.
