Champion of the Parish

Creature — Human Soldier

Whenever another Human enters the battlefield under your control, put a +1/+1 counter on Champion of the Parish.

+1 for stepping out of the box, Death and Taxes is fairly streamlined in modern these days, so anything that's different is always worth looking at. I won't tell you to move in that direction either, but a few notes:
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is always a big target for players. Generally you'd want to run 4 so that you're always prepared for the worst. You'd probably be fine with 3.
- Authority of the Consuls > Imposing Sovereign. Yeah with tax you'd be paying the same amount, but it just straight offers more value.
- How often do you put +1/+1 counters on Esper Sentinel? He's still value regardless, with Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, it seems like that's a bit of a theme. If you don't care that much about +1/+1's, maybe keep the lieutenant and replace champion with Aether Vial?

I prefer Thalia's Lieutenant over Champion of the Parish as the additional mana is usually worth the ETB buff as a late game draw.

Hall of Triumph could be replaced by Path of Bravery or Spear of Heliod depending on your preferred playstyle.

Angel of Glory's Rise is a winner for Darien decks, currently it will resurrect 75% of your creatures (and the bonus zombie interaction is fun too). Sun Titan is also great repeatable resurrection, bringing back a current 64% of your permanent cards.

Mirror Entity is a cool card to think about, it adds to your human/soldier count and acts as a mana-sink late game to turn your army into buff dudes (either to attack with or survive damage-based removal such as Hour of Devastation)

I agree that Serra's Embrace is a little outclassed. But, I can easily get behind a card being in a deck for nostalgia reasons :) Looking at 1 drops, Champion of the Parish could be really good and isn't too pricey.

At the top end of the curve, I'd run 1 or 2 high-impact cards in the 5-6 mana slot. I like knowing that there's something I can draw to turn the tide if I'm struggling in the mid-late game, but you definitely want to keep the overall curve low. Sun Titan might be nice, or a maybe something like Gideon Jura.

Creatures you own are soldiers and knights in addition to their other types at all times.

No more choosing between a soldier build with Champion of the Parish or a knight build with Knight Exemplar.

Make another card that combines two creature types or themes that you always wanted to put together but the card to do so doesn’t exist

Thanks for the comment and upvote MountainMan817! Soul sisters would be a really great way to top up my life and keep me afloat, however they would just take too many spots away from the main part of the deck. I did also consider adding Champion of the Parish as a first turn 1-drop but decided against it since it couldn't create any tokens, and really that's what this deck wants to do most.

I've actually been playtesting another version of this deck and I think I like the other version better. I'm going to update this deck to match the other version if you want to give it a look!

Champion of the Parish feels like it would have a home. The shell calls to Soul Sisters with Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant with the token production you have but that might get away from what you want. If Soul Sisters is something you want, Norin the Wary and Purphoros, God of the Forge are fun in red. +1

Nice deck! But with all these humans i'd consider adding Champion of the Parish which is a more solid one drop than Boros Elite
