Nice deck (+1), love the Boros theme here. Have you considered some creatures with built in battalion enabling; i.e. Hanweir Garrison, Hero of Bladehold, Leonin Warleader, Skyknight Vanguard, or Basri Ket (not a creature, but the same idea). Also Ilharg, the Raze-Boar seems like he would fit nicely here. Hope this helps.

Oh wow, thanks so much for providing these details jakeyuki12! This is a lot of food-for-thought so thanks for that. You hit the nail on the head for Heliod, God of the Sun, I am going to take him out for a Selesyna build I am working on. Commander Eesha is a total pet card haha. I used to run a soldier tribal deck back around Odyssey block and used Eesha to great effect. I used the bones of that deck to make this one, so there are definitely some leftovers in here. This was one of my first Commander decks so I am glad it is getting some fine-tuning to keep up with my meta. I sat down and took a look at what cards I had available to make some swaps and came up with:

Hedron Archive out for Boros Locket

Thran Dynamo out for Boros Cluestone

Return to Dust out for Wear / Tear

Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas out for Ballyrush Banneret

Heliod, God of the Sun out for Skyknight Vanguard

I am going to playtest this in some games tonight to see how it goes and adjust from there. I think next steps for me is to look at adding in additional card draw (I'm thinking I need to a Skullclamp to start). Thanks again for taking the time and for the help, it means a lot.

In my set Skyknight Vanguard appears as rare and Skyknight Legionnaire as an uncommon, though they should be uncommon and common. Is this a bug and/or can it be fixed?

This is more of a knight tribal than a humans... If you want to lean more on the human side of things, go for General's Enforcer, Tajic, Legion's Edge Judith, the Scourge Diva and this kind of stuff. The Enforcer is low key one of the best cards of the deck. Giant Killer is also a great option to have some more removal and is just a decent card for the stats, quite easy to get it to be a 2/3 or even more with Tajic, it should be in the main deck ALWAYS, since this deck is really light on interaction. I really dont like Hero of the Nyxborn in this deck, it lacks synergy, if all you want is two humans for one body, there are way better options out there Skyknight Vanguard is cute and all, it can make you some wide boards (not probable tough, we all know it is removal bait) but even if it does, there is a HUGE problem with it. It doesnt create humans or knights, and a bunch of 1/1 just dont cut it in this format. If you are thinking about it for a Winnota combo, just dont. The token it creates does NOT trigger Winnota when it is created, because it doesnt techncally "attack" on that combat, it is created already attacking For the manabase... IMO just dont get fancy... 12 shock lands, a couple of triomes if you want and fill the rest with basics, this deck doesnt want to lose a single turn to tapped mana, SPECIALLY during the first 3, so I think that Passage is just a waste, and helps decks that want to use your grave for something (not common, but it is just a drawback). The Tournament Grounds lose a lot of value if you are not full on knights, so I cut them in my list Other two cards I would suggest you look into are Boros Challenger and Whisper Squad, they may look like not that much, but they are surprisingly helpful
