fszk I can definitely do that!
Step one is deciding on whether you want to make soldier tokens specifically or just any type of creature. It doesn't really matter, they're both good and fun to play, but I'll give you suggestions for both.
You want to use cards like Assemble the Legion, Skyknight Vanguard, and Outlaws' Merriment to consistently make a tokens. Which, y'know, in Boros token spam you're probably going to want a lot of those.
Then you're going to want a reason to make so many tokens. Either something to buff them like Honored Crop-Captain and Felidar Retreat or a reward for having so many creatures Halo Fountain (Expensive, but you really only need 2 copies), Seraph of the Masses or Kolaghan Forerunners. You could also use something like Goblin Bombardment, Impact Tremors, or Cavalcade of Calamity. What you pick here is going to change a lot of what you pick for other parts.
And now for mana! White and red don't have a lot of great mana ramp, but classic artifacts like Boros Signet, Boros Keyrune, or Boros Cluestone. Prosperous Partnership could work well, too. Goblin Trenches could be snazzy if you care to add in white catch-up cards, but I'd stick to Prosperous and Signet.
Anyway, uhh, I just said a lot of stuff. That's my definition of some pointers. You don't want to know what a lot of pointers looks like. Good luck and feel free to ask for more assistance. (:

Blasting Station would make this deck infinite.
Halo Fountain gives you an alt win condition.
And Welcoming Vampire gives you draw.

I too don't sign in to Tappedout much lately so this too is a delayed comment :)
I love the idea of Emiel the Blessed, because not only is it a wincon WHEN you combo it with Village Bell-Ringer, but it also can be used as a defensive tactic when a creature - specifically Captain Sisay. Problem is it requires another creature that is not easily tutorable - but it IS only a 3 drop creature, has flash, and it is awesome to work with Gaddock Teeg. So a definite possibility that I will test.
As far as Drumbellower, its basically a 2 mana cheaper option than Seedborn Muse but still has the same strategic value as it - so it boils down to whether that 2 less mana cost is enough to warrant it being included over other options.
Thanks for on going input.

Really solid deck! Been looking for more Jazal decks because I feel like he's underappreciated. Would definitely recommend Halo Fountain for an alternate wincon especially with your indestructible bonuses from Eldrazi Monument

ClockworkSwordfish - Thanks! I'm aware Throne of the God Pharaoh is the "superior" wincon, and I'd previously built a deck around that (Throne of Thorns). However, there are some significant reasons to run Halo Fountain - for starters, it does more than just win - it's also generates tokens and draws cards while untapping lands as long as they're creatures. Probably more importantly, it's an instant win instead of a drain. In my playgroup, Throne of the God Pharaoh is deeply feared, so in multiplayer games, it puts a huge target on anyone that plays it, whether it's working or not. Comparatively, I think Halo is going to be seen as much less of a threat, though I've yet to play this, so I'm not certain.

Delayed comment (I dont used tappedout much signed in) but all your comments make sense, good information! I think the usual combo I see with Vivien is Emiel the Blessed, so you can grab out a Village Bell-Ringer with enough mana dorks, or mana dorks that specifically un tap lands like cradle. It's a different build of course, both look like cool options but all your considerations / reasonings make sense.
Love seeing Halo Fountain as well, card is sick I need to figure out a use for it. I assume Seedborn Muse would be too slow, but thoughts on Drumbellower? Or is the idea you should only need one or two untaps in order to close out what you need

Master of Ceremonies didn't perform as I wanted while taking a 4 cmc slot, which hurt a bit.
Halo Fountain on the other hand worked great for me! I got to draw an extra card alomst every turn when I had this out.
I took out Elspeth, Sun's Champion because I really want to try the new Ancient Gold Dragon but I guess Elspeth, Sun's Champion is the better card. In this case I just wanted to play Ancient Gold Dragon :D
I will play around with the dragon a bit and then I will put Elspeth back in or I'll try Battle Angels of Tyr, which I'm also a big fan of.
Thanks for the tip with the Grand Crescendo. As of now I don't know if I will put this in the deck, but the synergy seems pretty neat!
I'm thinking about taking Guardian of Faith so I guess this would be a nice card to swap in :)

Also wondering about the elspeth swap. Is it because it's a better card and creature or trying new card?
Lastly Grand Crescendo is a newer card you might want. Protection and tokens.
