Clifftop Retreat enters the battlefield tapped unless you control a Mountain or a Plains.

Might be nothing, but Urabrask's art has him facing the same direction as Jin-Gitaxias Flip. Does this mean that he sides with Phyrexia after all? My thought process is that all of the Phyrexian legends would be facing one way and the Gatewatch/multiverse legends would be facing against them, art wise.
Also, I know they're not popular at all, but I love all the new art for the tapped gainlands. Wind-Scarred Crag is a direct reference/compleation to Clifftop Retreat.

I have replaced the three checklands in this deck (Hinterland Harbor, Clifftop Retreat, and Sulfur Falls) with the shocklands of the same colors (Breeding Pool, Sacred Foundry, and Steam Vents), because, with this being a four-colored deck, I cannot take the chance of the checklands entering the battlefield tapped.

There's a good article on running burn at various budgetary levels here. If you do end up running stuff like Shock, Monastery Mentor, Vexing Devil, Lightning Strike, Deflecting Palm, Risk Factor, Rip Apart etc, then by all means live your dreams, but do be aware you'll be running a brew that is strictly worse than what you could be for that same budget. Rip Apart, Monastery Mentor, and Shock in particular are all terrible cards for burn and will make it a LOT harder for you to reliably win games (Rip Apart is at least playable in the sideboard).
In any case, you should definitely take on the advise of jethstriker and fix up the manabase. Burn generally needs 20 lands to begin with (so your land count is too low at the moment), but then you should always be aiming towards lands that don't enter tapped. Even Clifftop Retreat is too risky to be useful, and you'd be better off just playing all-basics than either that or Evolving Wilds. Battlefield Forge is a really good budget option for providing two colours.

beseides fetch lands the other check lands would go nicely with that full playset of Raugrin Triome.... 2x Glacial Fortress and 2x Clifftop Retreat...maybe even the snarl cycle Furycalm Snarl and Frostboil Snarl?

EDH evaluation isn't really my strong point, but here's what I got.
Daru Warchief is reliable Soldier tribal support, and Cenn's Tactician offers another 1-drop creature.
I'm not really seeing the purpose of Eldrazi Conscription. It's a good card, but it doesn't offer much to the go-wide, strength in numbers approach that Soldier tribal decks usually take. I also don't see a way to get it out quickly and reliably, so it's just kind of there.
Related to this, any effect that pumps a single creature probably isn't worth it. Sanctuary Blade, Angelic Gift, Eternal Thirst, and Gift of Orzhova in particular don't seem right for this deck.
I see a lifegain subtheme, which is fine as long as it works. How often does Angelic Accord trigger? Unless it's going off every turn, that's another one that can be taken out. Outside of that, I don't see any other payoffs for the lifegain. If you don't have any reason to include it other than "not losing," I would also drop Take Heart; there are better combat tricks.
Duress seems out of place, and doesn't really contribute anything to your soldiers. Champion of the Parish would be better served in a more Human-focused deck, since many of your creatures and almost of your tokens don't have the Human subtype.
Makeshift Battalion and Skymarch Bloodletter are generally pretty weak creatures.
For upgrades and replacements, you have some budget room, so I'm going to try to use that up. Rootborn Defenses should be Heroic Intervention, to save mana and get hexproof for your stuff instead of another 1/1 token. Switch Navigator's Compass for another mana rock that can provide mana instead of just changing it, like Fellwar Stone. Unless you regularly see regeneration, like multiple times every match, Dreadbore is better than Terminate.
Your lands are generally pretty slow, and I don't recommend the bounce lands (Rakdos Carnarium and friends) without a specific purpose beyond simply mana fixing. If you can, get the shocklands (Blood Crypt and friends) in their place. There are other land cycles as well for every level of budget. Look for ones that give the option to enter untapped. Clifftop Retreat is a good start. The Luxury Suite cycle (I forget what the nickname is) can get expensive, but if you can afford the investment are definitely worth it.
When looking for cuts, keep one question in mind: "How does this help advance my strategy?" If the answer is only "Because it's a Soldier" or "Because it gains me life," it's probably cuttable. Soldiers in particular are a very synergistic tribe, and ideally every card should help support every other card.
Hope this helps!
