What I'm suggesting is more of a focus on the +1/+1 counters and the slight life gain that can go along with it. Sit behind a wide army of little guys until you can slowly stack them up high. Any blink effect, like coudshift or eerie interlude can also work well, and bigger/better wraths, Austere Command , Cleansing Nova , End Hostilities , Mass Calcify , Planar Cleansing , Rout , Slash the Ranks ,

Skyclave Apparition would be helpfull against crabs..
I may try adding Heliod's Punishment hadn't really conidered that one and i don't think i have ever seen it played. It actually makes a good bit of sense in this deck though.
Lavabrink Venturer is solid and can be inflated
maybe take out Felidar Retreat, it often is awkward though it has saved a game or 2.
Mangara, the Diplomat x2 is another thought i was having to replace felidar.

But here are a couple more efficient threats that also help to disrupt your opponent:
Eidolon of Obstruction
Lavabrink Venturer (this is not turned off by Hushbringer)
Murderous Rider - you definitely need to include this! It doesn't count as a non-creature, and you will be running into Uro. Keep in mind you turn off Uro's ETB draw with Hushbringer, but also his self-sacrifice trigger, so you're giving your opponents t3 Uro.
Rankle, Master of Pranks
I hope this helps!

plakjekaas, it's more about protecting me and my creatures than protecting my enemy. Why would I?
Fun fact, from one of my games, an opponent tried to do the smart thing, and cast Lavabrink Venturer calling Even. Turns out, when damage can't be prevented, it includes prevention due to protection. That poor guy lasted all of one block.

Hey, good start upgrading the precon on a budget.
28 lands is not enough land for an avg. CMC of 3.4 which is high. I recommend 36 lands and adding Knight of the White Orchid. First strike with a two drop Human is good with +2 pump from Jirina. You want to take more advantage of Jirina who's a four drop anthem effect for Humans. This means you want to consistently be able to play more impactful one drops (Champion of the Parish)/two drops (Thalia's Lieutenant)/three drops (Frontline Medic) to attack with the turn you play Jirina.
Tribal creature strategies in Commander fold to board wipes. To combat this play more repeatable instant speed indestructible protection (Etchings of the Chosen), creature recursion (Phyrexian Reclamation), reanimation (Alesha, Who Smiles at Death) and noncreature repeatable sources of Humans (Outlaws' Merriment).
Budget lands to consider adding:
- Unclaimed Territory
- Exotic Orchard
- Nomad Outpost
- Caves of Koilos
- Battlefield Forge
- Smoldering Marsh
- Rakdos Carnarium
Cards to consider cutting to add more lands and other suggestions:
- Bonds of Faith
- Street Riot
- Hope Against Hope
- Kamahl, Pit Fighter
- Dreamshaper Shaman
- Cone of Flame
- The Akroan War
- Rising Populace
- Lavabrink Venturer
- Makeshift Battalion
- Hardened Berserker
- Warded Battlements
- King Macar, the Gold-Cursed

Good luck with your deck.

Lavabrink Venturer: Will definitely try out. The new protection ability is quite intriguing.
Checkpoint Officer: Great in limited but a hard pass in our deck.
Daysquad Marshal: Same as above. Our deck has other ways of creating tokens.
Snare Tactician: Third verse like the first as John of Heroes and Legends would say.
Perimeter Sergeant: Designed to be in a human deck.
So this is a reverse for my other EDH deck; Simic Hydra Tribal, we have lots of add ons from C20 and very little from Ikoria.
