I see the strength of this deck in its straightforward strategy; while everyone else is setting up degenerate combos and not actually defending themselves, you can beat the heck out of them before they finish telling you how "mono white is unplayable".

What I'm suggesting is more of a focus on the +1/+1 counters and the slight life gain that can go along with it. Sit behind a wide army of little guys until you can slowly stack them up high. Any blink effect, like coudshift or eerie interlude can also work well, and bigger/better wraths, Austere Command , Cleansing Nova , End Hostilities , Mass Calcify , Planar Cleansing , Rout , Slash the Ranks ,

Human harvest with no Second Harvest ? You'd actually need more token generation like Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Gather the Townsfolk , Tireless Tracker , Ulvenwald Mysteries , etc. to run it, but it fits the theme. Also, decent as Archetype of Courage may be, the celestial cloak and those abs don't scream "peasant" to me XD

Preeminent Captain is a strong soldier staple since it can get in big threats like Captain of the Watch early. Odric, Lunarch Marshal could be one of those threats seeing as you have so much first strike and vigilance naturally. That could free up slots since he'd make Archetype of Courage and Brave the Sands potentially redundant. If you do go that route, some useful inclusions might be Aerial Responder , Fencing Ace , Adanto Vanguard , and Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip. Otherwise, Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a very efficient soldier, if a bit pricey, with some degree of lore connection to Elspeth. Finally, I'd probably include at least a singleton copy of Sunlit Hoplite for your walker to grab. It's not a remarkable creature, but then, Elspeth, Undaunted Hero isn't a remarkable planeswalker when compared to Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Elspeth, Sun's Champion . You may as well at least have the flexibility of recurring a Hoplite when your board state has been diminished and you don't have the luxury of going for the ultimate.

Teach those people to FEAR the Boros! Dolmen Gate and Iroas, God of Victory both turns combat extremely one sided and lets you keep your pointy beaters instead of just trading them. Archetype of Courage is a cheap creature that provides a pretty massive benefit with your commander; hard to lose in combat with +3/+0 and first strike for all your creatures. Along that line Rise of the Hobgoblins can give you both a bunch of tokens AND a first strike button for your creatures. Plus you get to say "Hobgoblin" a bunch of times in a game, that's just gravy.
