If you think that Mr. Serra Ascendant is too expensive, a (sort-of) substitute could be Lone Rider Flip and/or Ajani's Pridemate. Again, if you don't mind the cost, you can also run Auriok Champion. Or, if you do mind the cost, you can run Suture Priest as a good substitute.
Martyr of Sands is a good Soul Sisters card that I am surprised to not see in here...
I was going to suggest Congregate for more intense lifegain, but I suppose I'll have to thank (again) Guardian of Thraben for making it expensive.

Thank you for the suggestions. I did have Auriok Champion and Serra Ascendant on order but had to make sure they arrived before I put them in. (So pricey) I have tried to stick with humans as my theme to get the most value out of Cavern of Souls. I am considering putting Chalice of Life Flip an Archangel of Thune in the sideboard.
Brave the Elements is a fantastic suggestion for sideboard.

I'd look to get 1 or 2 more lands to be able to consistently hit your Ranger of Eoss. It kinda sucks when you don't quite have enough but have one or two in hand. In conjunction with this I'd also cut a few noncreature spells, as 14 noncreature spells don't play well with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. I love Mana Tithe, but a 4 of seems a little bit excessive (2-3 may be better here), as it only takes 1 to create mindgames for your opponent. I'd also consider exactly how good Spectral Procession is for you, as it can frequently cost 4 mana and sometimes even 5 because of the 8 colorless mana sources and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. If I may, I'd try looking into Gather the Townsfolk for a cheaper production of bodies that trigger both Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, while staying reasonably priced with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. It also can be great for recovering, as when you reach fateful hour with a soul sister on the board you can get a real revitalization. Also, in regards to your 8 colorless sources, I imagine that they won't frequently be a large problem, but I'd consider cutting 1 Cavern of Souls unless your meta has a lot of counter magic flying around. Hope this helped!

Thanks for the feedback. I have tried to address the problems by putting in more creatures and fiddling around with the mana base a little. I thought I had 4 caverns, however one of my trades fell through so I only have the two which is handy because I just technically saved a small pile of money.

I feel like Thalia (old) is counterproductive. replacing her would make the deck a little more consistent

wyatt0781, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is actually really good in almost every matchup you could have in modern provided you are affected less by it than your opponent, which with 10 noncreature spells in the mainboard that will usually be the case. Delaying board wipes and removal or their gameplan by a turn gives you a turn to get in for more damage.

I only really put in the swords because i got one of each of them when they were cheap and was trying them out. You are right and they are not a great fit. I do love the Loxodon Warhammer as a replacement. I am not running Ajani's Pridemate because i am trying to keep it tribal. If i was running a normal soul sisters deck i would definitely run them.
Thanks for the advice and feedback. :)
