With the new sets there is a bunch of token options, this is my take help is welcomed.
Changed some things around after the new set. Thinking about moving the reinforcements to the sideboard to add in another gather the townsfolk and possibly an o-ring. But I was also thinking of switching the doomsayers out for some silverblade paladins as they would pair well with a pumped champion or making the monk a double striker that doesn't tap. Another possible change I was thinking of was switching the monks out for angelic overseers or even keep them in the sideboard to have the option between the two because the overseers work well against removal decks and big creatures as it gains indestructible as long as you control a human. Would work well against decks running deathtouch guys in the form of nightshade peddler or the mirror match against another vault letting you swing without worry, would also be a good choice to pair with if the paladins go in. Let me know what you guys think as help is appreciated.
Edit: I also got some terminus on the way and was thinking of moving two into the side just to interchange with the DoJ when coming across undying decks. Ideas on this is welcomed as well
I think replacing the Geist-Honored Monk with Angelic Overseer would be a good move since you run so many humans. Another option would be to put in 1-2 Angel of Glory's Rise for the mid to late game so that your humans in the graveyard can be an additional threat after you cast Day of Judgment. What about Mirran Crusader? Can't argue with double strike and protection from two colors for the mana cost. If you want to splash green, Champion of Lambholt would be a good addition as it would allow you to get more hits on the opponent with your tokens. For the sideboard you might consider Marrow Shards if you are playing against another human or spirit deck since it will help you deal with their 1/1s.

Good ideas to think about, Im almost 100% sure that I will be using the overseers with the geist in the side. I like mirran crusader but he rotates out before the other three drops, and silverblade would give another creature double strike as well so I dunno. Also im not sold on glory's rise as ill maybe have a champion and another human in the graveyard as the tokens leave play, also against blue/white they'll be getting exiled more than sent to the graveyard. The DoJ is just in case I somehow get at a disadvantage some way and need to clear. Thats why I was thinking terminus might be better in most cases, especially when going against undying (zombies). Marrow Shards I will think about but the problem with that other token decks will be running honor of the pure and intangible virtue so the one damage will only work till maybe turn three, where as the righteous blows I just put in will deal with that as well as delver.

Good points, especially with Terminus and undying. A card I forgot to mention that would be useful if you wanted to splash green was Gavony Township since it has synergy with Mikaeus, the Lunarch and Champion of Lambholt . That and Cathars' Crusade could turn out a lot of +1/+1 counters for you.
