I like the list. It has real potential.
I'm not a fan of doomed and null priest unless they are cheating out big creatures - the only big cleric I can think of is Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. Resurrecting multiple other clerics can be done in easier, less disruptable ways.
Many of the most powerful sideboard cards (mainboardable in many metas) are clerics, and that means that with 75 cards including sideboard, something that can really kick butt in a metagame is out there.
The option to ressurect Children of Korlis, Containment Priest, Ethersworn Canonist, Fiend Hunter, Grand Abolisher, Leonin Arbiter, Auriok Champion, Leonin Relic-Warder, Remorseful Cleric, Sanctifier en-Vec, Sin Collector - there are too many great clerics for this not to become something. Even stuff like Orzhov Pontiff and True Believer has seen sideboard play in the kind of creature-led deck it would be.
You have access to all the tools from soul sisters, with Soul Warden also getting Marauding Blight-Priest as another piece. Vizier of Remedies threatens a combo line. Efficient 1 drops means that tools like Orzhov Charm, Ranger-Captain of Eos and Proclamation of Rebirth look a lot better. Order of Whiteclay and oddities like Hanweir Militia Captain Flip it offer more options than you'd expect, and it only takes one good interaction with them to turn them into powerhouse engines.
All of that before looking at w/b getting the best removal in the game means that some variant of this list will make a dent in a major tournament, once someone figures it out.

Anointed Procession is a must have in a token based deck because it doubles the amount of tokens you make.
Felidar Retreat gives a 2/2 cat token ever time you play a land.
Second Harvest instantly doubles your tokens.
March of the Multitudes convoke your current tokens to make more tokens.
Anointer Priest gain life everytime a token ETBs.
Basri Ket doubles your attacking tokens with his -2 ability.
Spear of Heliod gives all your tokens +1/+1 and has a removal ability as well.
Woodland Champion powers up every time you create a token
I hope this helps.

Human harvest with no Second Harvest ? You'd actually need more token generation like Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Gather the Townsfolk , Tireless Tracker , Ulvenwald Mysteries , etc. to run it, but it fits the theme. Also, decent as Archetype of Courage may be, the celestial cloak and those abs don't scream "peasant" to me XD

Feat of Resistance is solely for protection with a little bit of counters? Basri's Solidarity would be something to think about. Thalia, Heretic Cathar can go to the sideboard. Knight of the White Orchid is faster than Hanweir Militia Captain Flip. What you can do is cut down some lands, maybe 20-22 so you can have 2 of the captain and 4 of the Knight. Idyllic Grange is also something you can add.

For human tribal, Jirina or Trynn/Silvar are probably better, but Alena/Ravos could be pretty good for a different concept. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is a solid alternate to Alena, and is much cheaper now that commander legends is out, so unless you have a need for that red mana, he's worth considering.
For mana, you could add more mana rocks, but it doesn't look that bad other than lots of lands come into play tapped. I tend to run basics over many tapped lands.

Thraben Doomsayer and Gather the Townsfolk can synergize well with your etb triggers. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip would probably be better than Caller of the Hunt in most games. If the black tokens don’t bother you, Westvale Abbey Flip can create tokens without taking a creature slot, and Castle Ardenvale can do the same for mono-white tokens.

Swilliam Bloodsoaked Champion is definitely worth trying out, and Anafenza, the Foremost might be just the card needed to grind out later games. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip however seems very slow for this deck, and not a good main board strategy. I do believe that it fits as a sideboard card to add when playing against other decks that build their board up.
