Sweet deck!!
I too have a kothophed deck, it tries to make lots of mana. A couple cards for your consideration: Thrashing Wumpus, Eternal Thirst, Sacrifice, Attrition, Crypt Rats, any lifelink equipment or enchatment...
Also you have quite a lot of point removal, but for your sorcery speed murderous compulsion i would lean more towards a boardwipe like Crux of Fate or similar.
Cheers and have fun!!

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!

Thank you wallisface for your comment. I definitely think that your killspells are much stronger and will probably end up upgrading to those.

As for the Malakir Cullblade, Savage Gorger, and Eternal Thirst I quite like those cards and I am hoping that the blue cards will be able to counter any removals though I definitely agree that they are risky. I think Unlikely Aid also helps as it can make them indestructible.

I'll try playing without Typhoid Rats or Sanitarium Skeleton usually those are just stall cards anyways but they might not be very good as you said.

Appreciate the comment!

Some thoughts:

  • 24 lands seems a little high given your mana curve. I think you can get away with 21-22.

  • Typhoid Rats does nothing for you as your deck is playing to be on the offensive. Sanitarium Skeleton is just generally a bad card, and probably shouldn’t be in any deck, let-alone an aggro one.

  • both of Malakir Cullblade and Savage Gorger are very risky cards, in that a single killspell removes the entire threat. Consider swapping them for the likes of Young Pyromancer and Sedgemoor Witch that will each offer the same overall power, while being much harder to nullify (because they get their power from making additional creatures)

  • your current selection of killspells are pretty lacking in power, especially Murder. I’d recommend considering the likes of Fatal Push, Infernal Grasp, and Flame Slash.

  • i’d suggest ditching Eternal Thirst. Auras in general are bad as they tend to put you behind in card advantage.

Unless you’re using Demon of Loathing and Eternal Thirst as placeholders for other cards or something like that, they aren’t Standard format legal.

Love the deck! I have a few suggestions for cards that could be cut and some suggestions for what might replace them. I tried the keep the suggested cards reasonably priced. I have a few of them in my binder that I will give you next time we play.

Suggested removal - Most of these cards I figured could be easily upgraded with cards that add more value, utility, stax, or interaction:
