I always liked using Training Grounds and similar effects with the level up creatures - good candidates include Brimstone Mage, Hada Spy Patrol and Kabira Vindicator. I also felt it really put Dark Impostor over the top!

Suns_Champion I’m thinking of putting in creatures like Hero of Bladehold and Precinct Captain since while they don’t make human creature tokens I do think the extra bodies and the battle cry ability could be useful.
Also maybe Kabira Vindicator since he is a good body that can turn into another anthem effect for my board.

Definitely consider Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. You could go voltron/battle cruiser with Skullbriar, the Walking Grave. So many different kinds of counters out there. Maybe a level up deck? Kabira Vindicator, Lighthouse Chronologist, Hexdrinker, Kazandu Tuskcaller....

I'm really surprised it's as potentially strong as it is.

you may be better off pretending its a mono-white deck with Khorvath Brightflame at the helm. Which isnt that far off from the list -the few bulk dragons.
It may be tedious, but adding lands will help immensely, both from a "commander decks with partner have a 98 card deck" stance, but also help you tune the manabase to fit your curve and deckoverall.
budget knights like Benalish Marshal , Kabira Vindicator , Lightwielder Paladin , Riftmarked Knight , and Valiant Knight may be taking a look at, as are some less budget like Knight Exemplar or Kinsbaile Cavalier
that all being said, best of luck in completing the deck .... i may have to built a KNIGHT deck now (with a dragon commander)

Kabira Vindicator would be my pick, and maybe adjust the counts so that you can include 3 or possibly even 4 copies so they're more reliably obtained early-game.
The Kabira Vindicator is just a bit too high mana cost for my liking, personally, not to mention it taking extra turns worth of mana to pump it up just to be on-par with some of your 3-mana drops like Benalish Marshal and Knight Exemplar , which obtain essentially the same effect for far less mana.

So with the theme of being aggro/removal, and keeping the deck at a budget I'll try and list some budget alternatives that can be upgrades, off the cards I can think of off the top of my head. I'm also noticing a trend with +1/+1 counters so I'll consider those as well
Arbor Colossus: He's basically an 11 cost 9/9 that removes one single flying creature
Druid of the Cowl: Two drop mana dork that can be replaced by Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic. Though Druid of the Cowl has more toughness, playing one of the others turn 1 helps accelerate you better.
Experiment One: Cool one drop that gives himself counters and can regenerate, but the downside is that your deck does run a lot of creatures with similar low power/toughness creatures making this hard to get passed more than 3 counters without the aid of using resources on him.
Kabira Vindicator: Level up is a cool mechanic, but having to spend 4 mana to cast him and then another 6 mana to give your creatures +1/+1 is pretty bad. Glorious Anthem would already give them +1/+1 OR you can always get Gideon, Ally of Zendikar use his -4 ability immediately and have the emblem to have an almost permanent buff to your creatures.
Knight of Cliffhaven: Same reason as Kabira, 5 mana to have a flying 2/3 is pretty meh. and 14 mana total to have a flying, vigilant 4/4 is the worst.
Sunscorch Regent may not have vigilance, but he does have flying, and gets stronger the more spells that cast as well as gaining you life.
Netcaster Spider: Would just replace this with
Longshot Squad, would synergize more with the deck and grants your other creatures +1/+1
Salt Road Patrol: For aggro, this card is too slow and only boost itself.
Sporemound: You don't have any mana accelerators or extra land drop enablers
Oath of Ajani: Would replace with Abzan Ascendancy, one extra mana for the same first ability, but the second ability will have more usage since you don't run any planeswalkers in the deck which makes the oath just a dead card on the field.
Consume the Meek: This kills your commander and most of your creatures
Cards I would consider adding:
Cathars' Crusade: Considered a staple in most creature decks that use +1/+1 counter things
Forgotten Ancient: Allows itself to gain more counters on it while the game continues and can move them to other creatures
Retribution of the Ancients: Great kill enchantment that revolves around +1/+1 counters
Oran-Rief, the Vastwood: Just an all around decent land that gives counters to all your creatures that entered on the same turn.
