So... Here's a thought for you... Magda, Brazen Outlaw just came out and it should work wonders in this deck, purely for pulling out the best vehicles from this deck and a few good tribal artifacts, like Coat of Arms or Obelisk of Urd .
Also, since you have so many vehicles, and so many of them have crew 2 or less, maybe I'd add a few more 1CMC dwarves of old... They're red and they're normally 1/1, but since your commander is a lord (to make'em 2/2's) and they're most likely always crewing instead of attacking, this should make your deck run a lot faster and smoother. There seems to be a lot of 3+CMC dwarves in here that dont do much other than beeing a Dwarf, so try to bring down your curve so you can get on the board earlier.
I'd recommend you to take a look at Metallic Mimic , Adaptive Automaton (since they're both dwarves, if you want), Bloodfire Dwarf , Dwarven Grunt , Spark Mage , Dwarven Miner and Dwarven Blastminer for a start!
Take a look at my take on a dwarf tribal as well, I'd love the feedback! I'm running it mono red with Magda at the command zone.

Good Afternoon, Hope everyone is doing well.
I've amassed the following cards for specifically a soldier-themed deck, but I'm having trouble narrowing down the list for an appropriate deck, so I'd like to request advice and assistance. The general idea was to summon a bunch of soldier tokens, buff them, defeat opponents, but I keep stumbling into cards that would be 'cool' or 'awesome' with the theme. Here are the cards I am looking at:
Legendary Cards (Potential Commanders) Akroma, Vision of Ixidor (Synergy with Odric) Baird, Steward of Argive (Good delay) Brimaz, King of Oreskos (Cheap commander that produces soldiers) Darien, King of Kjeldor (decent way of making soldiers, expensive) Keleth, Sunmane Familiar (only for partner) Lena, Selfless Champion Mikaeus, the Lunarch Nahiri, the Lithomancer Odric, Lunarch Marshal Odric, Master Tactician Prava of the Steel Legion Thalia, Heretic Cathar Trynn, Champion of Freedom
Normal Cards Abzan Falconer (synergy with Mikaeus) Adaptive Automaton (buffs soldiers) Ainok Bond-Kin (synergy with Mikaeus) Ancestral Blade (2 for a 2/2 creature seems good, especially if I can re-assign it to Auriok Steelshaper) Angel's Feather (Life gain) Angel's Grace (emergency + synergy with Darien)(Isochron Scepter) Anointed Procession (Double tokens, yes) Anointer Priest (life gain for tokens, seems good) Auriok Steelshaper (seems like good synergy with the equipment in the deck, if they're included. Otherwise, might toss this out) Aven Brigadier (Might toss this) Aysen Crusader (P/T based on soldiers? Yes please) Ballyrush Banneret (cheaper soldier spells) Basri Ket (Synergy with Abzan Falconer and Ainok Bond-Kin)(Produces Soldier Tokens) Benalish Commander (Roundabout way of producing soldiers) Bounty Agent (Neat way of dealing with certain cards) Call the Coppercoats (Produces soldiers) Captain of the Watch (Produces soldiers, buffs soldiers) Captain's Call (Produces soldiers) Catapult Master (Neat way of exiling enemy creatures) Cenn's Enlistment (produces soldiers, retrace) Commanding Presence (roundabout way of producing soldiers) Conclave Phalanx (can easily be a free creature + free life gain) Congregate (good life gain) Conqueror's Pledge (produces soldiers) Coordinated Barrage (meshes with soldiers well. Isochron Scepter) Crusader of Odric (can get really tough and powerful, might be worth cutting though) Daru Stinger (Could be really potent) Daru Warchief (cheaper spells, buffs soldiers, seems good) Dawn of Hope (good synergy with life gains, produces soldiers with lifelink) Daysquad Marshal (produces 1 soldier token, only really good with other buffs/cost reductions) Decree of Justice (mostly just to cycle it) Deploy to the Front (Great way of expanding ranks of soldiers) Devout Invocation (This is basically a win condition) Door of Destinies (buffs soldiers) Elspeth Tirel (makes soldiers, gain life, emergency nuke) Elspeth, Knight-Errant (makes soldiers, indestructable emblem) Elspeth, Sun's Champion (produces soldiers, cool emblem) Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis (makes soldiers or gain life, neat concept) Enlistment Officer (Good way of thinning the deck) Entrapment Maneuver (produces soldiers while protecting yourself, smidge situational) Erase (cheap removal. Isochron Scepter) Evangel of Heliod (produces soldiers, potential for lots of soldiers) Even the Odds (Nice way of getting emergency troops) Fairgrounds Warden (cool removal) Field Marshal (buffs soldiers) Fiend Binder (cool removal) Finale of Glory (basically a win condition) First Response (Nice way of benefitting from small attackers, I think) Garrison Cat (produces 1 soldier token, effectively replacing itself, might be worth cutting) Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (only really here for the emblem and possibly getting buffed on attacks) Gift of Estates (Land is always a problem for me, good deck thinning) Glorious Anthem (buff) God-Favored General (produces soldiers, albeit a bit expensive) Haazda Marshal (neat soldier producer, makes lifelink soldiers) Hero of Bladehold (battlecry + soldier producer, great with Haazda Marshal) Holy Day (defensive spell, Isochron Scepter) Honor of the Pure (buff) Hunted Witness (replaces itself with a soldier, cheap, might cut though) Intangible Virtue (buffs tokens) Intrepid Hero (Great removal, lots of great memories, nostalgic for me, etc) Isochron Scepter (Keep using certain Instants as needed) Join the Ranks (a bit expensive but makes soldiers) Journey to Nowhere (removal) Keeper of the Accord (really cool card, definitely helps with soldiers and lands) Knight-Captain of Eos (basically a holy day by sacrificing a soldier, seems really good) Land Tax (Land is always a problem) Launch the Fleet (produces soldiers, great with Odric, Haazda Marshal, Hero of Bladehold, Brimaz, etc) Leyline of the Meek (Neat little buff) Lieutenants of the Guard (neat mechanic, might cut) Loxodon Partisan (battlecry, might cut) Loyal Sentry (neat concept, cheap) Makeshift Battalion (diet battlecry) Marble Diamond (might be good) Marshal's Anthem (neat card, might be beneficial in a pinch) Martial Coup (great removal + producing soldiers) Mentor of the Meek (card draw from soldiers) Militia Bugler (decent deck-thinning, might cut since its only top four) Militia's Pride (produces soldiers, lots of good synergy) Mobilization (decent buff, built-in soldier producer, tad expensive) Mother of Runes (utility, might cut) Murder Investigation (neat little way of producing soldiers, depends) Ninth Bridge Patrol (neat way of benefitting from tokens getting destroyed) Nomads' Assembly (huge potential) Oath of Lieges (Land is always a problem) Oathsworn Giant (expensive, but decent buff) Oblivion Ring (Removal) Omen of the Sun (produces soldiers, little life gain, scry later, flash, generally good) Palace Guard (cool card)

lot of cheap creatures) Reborn Hero (neat concept, can bring it back) Rebuff the Wicked (neat counter) Recruit the Worthy (cheap soldiers, Isochron Scepter) Recruiter of the Guard (decent search)

(potentially lots of soldiers) Rhox Pikemaster (Decent buff) Righteous Cause (Decent buff, tad expensive) Riot Control (neat life gain, defense) Rootborn Defenses (defense, makes a soldier, neat) Safe Passage (defense) Selfless Squire (interesting utility, might cut) Sergeant-at-Arms (can create soldiers, seems expensive though) Shielded Passage (neat little defense, Isochron Scepter) Sol Ring (obvious reasons) Soul Parry (decent defense, Isochron Scepter) Soul Snare (neat way to keep up devotion + have something on hand to deal with a creature) Soulmender (cheap creature, life gain, might cut) Standing Troops (decent card, might cut) Stormfront Riders (expensive way of producing soldiers, flying, might cut) Strata Scythe (make something huge, might cut) Strength of Arms (decent way of making soldiers, Isochron Scepter) Sword of the Meek (decent way of bringing it back from graveyard, might cut though) Sworn Companions (lifelink soldiers) Terminus (nice clutch card) Thraben Standard

Thank you for your time and attention.

Growth Spiral seems really out of place; with mana dorks, I don't think you need extra ramp, especially in a splashed color.
I'd also switch up the manabase - maybe some pathway lands, or fetches, just for more duals.

Looks good. You might consider these: Coat of Arms , Konda's Banner , Heraldic Banner , Hall of Triumph , Obelisk of Urd , Metallic Mimic , Adaptive Automaton , Larceny , Ajani's Welcome , Bastion of Remembrance , Flickering Ward , Shimmering Wings , Mark of Eviction , Sigil of Sleep , Pentad Prism , Coastal Piracy

There are a few cards such as Adaptive Automaton, Vanquisher's Banner, and Icon of Ancestry that allow you to have tribal supports for any creature type. They might be nice to make up for the very few giant tribal synergies in the game.

I see you have 9 creatures who are wolves, and another dozen or so that produce wolf creature tokens with a good portion of these being repeatable, either triggers or activations. However, these wolves are also very small bodies compared to what EDH games can see. Fighting will cause you to almost certainly lose your wolf while doing little to shake up the boardstate of other players.
I see you have Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Beastmaster Ascension but I feel like this isn't enough. You definitely need some more anthems to pump your wolves up so they are far more threatening. So here's a list of permanents that can really help you out.
- Collective Blessing I'd recommend slotting in others before this, but if you have the room it can be a good fit
- Commander's Insignia this is a far better option. You have a lot of lands, and casting your commander is advantageous, meaning the more you cast her the more powerful this becomes
- Dictate of Heliod again, not the best as the one below is better since it can be free-cast, but if you have the room why the heck not
- Force of Virtue this is basically a free-cast
- Mirari's Wake this will really help with some of your repeatable activation costs
- Path of Bravery this combos extremely well with the next card
- True Conviction the doublestrike won't help you, but you will gain life from your wolves fighting as it's still considered damage the creature dealt, and yes the doublestrike really strengthens your boardstate since you're trying to go wide here
- Adaptive Automaton counts as a wolf and carries a banner for them
- Door of Destinies while it's true that you only get the counters on DoD when you CAST a wolf, it's equally true that ALL of your wolves get +X/+X, tokens included
- Hall of Triumph not the best but hey, it's good on curve
Now you'd also want to build up your draw. Your wolves may not naturally be this large, but with one enchantment on the field they will be. So...

Have you considered more changelings to help fill out your tribe (there's not many good ones, but Taurean Mauler and Adaptive Automaton might work well)? Adaptive Automaton, too, and maybe Metallic Mimic. Aggravated Assault goes infinite with five dwarves and any Vehicle (or opponent you can attack with no consequences), and Imperial Recruiter seems pretty awesome even if it's not a dwarf.
This might seem odd, but have you considered Helm of the Host here? Even tapping two or three dwarves offsets the high cost, once you have a second Magda, and it seems like silly things could happen when you get MULTIPLE treasures per tapped dwarf. Smuggler's Copter also seems like a must, are there other vehicles that you think would fit? :)
