The deck looks very solid - it's smart that you included so many ways to spread indestructibility around, since board wipes are basically the only answer to a deck that builds up this many fearsome creatures! That said, there are a few card slots that I'm more... skeptical of. Possibly there's an opportunity to tighten these spots up!
Demystify is something of a, well, mystifying choice. It gets the job done, but even for the exact same mana cost there are a number of strictly superior options, including Erase, Wax / Wane and Light of Hope. For your build in particular, you might prefer something like Sundering Growth for the added effect and ability to nail artifacts as well. Since you're running very few ways to deal with artifacts, finding room for options like Nature's Claim, Sylvan Reclamation and Aura Shards is probably worthwhile!
The card advantage and lifegain of Camaraderie is great, but since you're aiming to grow such a buff army, you might find you often get more life from Shamanic Revelation, which even costs one mana less! The only advantage of Camaraderie is really the +1/+1 which feels pretty minor at six mana.
One other choice I was curious about was Mentor of the Meek. Normally he's great card advantage for a white deck, but seeing as your commander quickly gives all of your creatures a big static boost, it might quickly be the case that you never have a creature with power 2 or less coming into play, even if they're a 1/1 token. Do you find this ever backfires, or Kyler is active rarely enough that it doesn't often overlap?
To support your strategy, a few other cards that might be a good fit in this build come to mind. It's a little slow and clunky, but Hydra's Growth might be a great way to achieve truly ludicrous size on Kyler. Deftblade Elite is a super versatile one-drop that can do it all: help your other creatures get past blockers, or hold off a deadly attacker indefinitely. Thanks to the boosts your commander is handing out, though, it's conceivable that the Elite could quickly get big enough to kill off a utility creature every turn thanks to Provoke, too! Mother of Runes is also a superb one-drop that is great for protecting your commander from any unwanted interactions.

Rebbec, Architect of Ascension is a pretty good fit for the deck! Now that you mention commander tax, Balan, Wandering Knight does make a lot more sense to me. As far as removal goes, I personally wouldn't go too heavy into creature removal because Sram can take care of most basic creatures (and deathtouch creatures provided he has first/double strike and the dt creature doesn't), but a lot of enchantments like Propaganda and Ghostly Prison can be quite the nuisance. I reccommend Erase and cards like it for dealing with those, but I wouldn't add more than 3 enchantment removal spells.

Braid of Fire seems super bad here. The mana only exists during your upkeep, so you can only ever really use it to cast instants, which generally speaking all cost around 2 mana anyway - so I don’t see the value this brings here… its more likely to just slow down your second turn.
Koth of the Hammer feels like faar too high a mana cost for a burn deck. As-is, your quantity of 3cmc spells makes me think you need to have more than 18 lands in the deck. I’d recommend lowering the curve a ton, or going up to 20ish lands.
Arm the Cathars feels like a very odd choice given the very low creature-count in the deck. I would also say sorcery-speed pump is usually pretty universally bad (outside of infect).
cards like Young Pyromancer and Blood Moon are more suitable for midrange decks rather than aggro decks. I think you need to figure out whether you wang your deck to play aggro or midrange, and then focus your card choices around that - at the moment it’s a weird hybrid of both, that’s going to struggle to do either gameplan well.

I enjoy mono white equipment vultron in edh. I have run many over the years starting from the forged in stone starter edh deck and this deck reminds me I need to update my current brew (balan is at the helm).
Removal. This is gonna be meta dependent you seem kinda light on removal. Another boardwipe might be good only especially is kinda rough. I'd suggest something like Balancing ActOndu Inversion FlipTragic ArroganceDusk / Dawn or a power toughness based wipe that keeps your weenies. (Erase a better demystify)
Suntitan Nahiri, the Lithomancer or other recursion. I know you are trying to play the aggressive game but a long term plan is always good.
Meta dependent but running silence? Much better in1v1 unless you are using it to stop a combo or stop interaction with your combo.

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.

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

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,

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

So with Crucible or Excavator, you'd want to discard lands because you'd know you could cast them from the graveyard. So you'd be able to keep spells you need in your hand. Additionally, both really hose stuff like Ghost Quarter , Field of Ruin , and Beast Within against your Mazes. So even it not mainboarded, 1x of one of them might be good in your sideboard.
The only downside I can see to Reliquary Tower is the slot(s) it takes up in your mana-base and the land-drop you have to make that isn't a Gate. All in all, seems pretty great.
I'd say move the Lantern to the Sideboard or cut it and add to your sideboard Prismatic Omen or some sort of Enchantment/Artifact removal - Disenchant or Revoke Existence or Erase or Oblivion Ring or Return to Nature or Back to Nature or Felidar Cub if you're afraid you won't have white mana available.
