So straight away I want to mention Dryad Militant Adanto Vanguard Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip and Sungold Sentinel Ambush Paratrooper and Zephyr Sentinel are not where an aggro deck wants to be... Arguably depending on what your creature makup looks like Thalia's Lieutenant could also have a home. Settle the Wreckage could well be something you want in your sideboard... A card like Calamity's Wake should really be Rest in Peace and Yotian Tactician should probably be Wedding Announcement Flip
I'd suggest you take some inspiration from https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pioneer-mono-white-humans#paper

Angel of Glory's Rise is a winner for Darien decks, currently it will resurrect 75% of your creatures (and the bonus zombie interaction is fun too). Sun Titan is also great repeatable resurrection, bringing back a current 64% of your permanent cards.
Mirror Entity is a cool card to think about, it adds to your human/soldier count and acts as a mana-sink late game to turn your army into buff dudes (either to attack with or survive damage-based removal such as Hour of Devastation)

Hehe lhetrick13 yeah it would be nice if Thalia's Lieutenant was a Knight creature too, just to get that extra bit of synergi. Although, it can be difficult to build a deck where all creatures are of the same type. Shapeshifter can generally be used if one want to “cheat in” some extra tribal creatures though! :p
You’re right regarding populate for this deck, I might have gotten too focused on the combo I mentioned. Although, I’d say it’s generally a good sign when its hard to come up with upgrades for a deck. It usually means that the deck is in a good state! Populate is otherwise a fun mechanic, but like many other mechanics that only appear in one or a few sets it’s hard to utilise effectively. I had a quick look at your cat deck and populate seems to be a better fit there as you say.
I don’t have other kight deck (yet). I’m currently working on a red and blue wizard deck made to make the player lose all friends afterwards. But I’m very much into tribal decks and I have a few more, of different tribes on my profile. I’m currently on vacation, hence my lack of time but I’d love to talk shop and maybe play a game or in future!

@ Yogei - The deck plays pretty quick with Collected Company being the only 3+ CMC card in the deck. It is a shame Thalia's Lieutenant is not a knight as it actually does work in this deck with the strong human presence and Worthy Knight.
I have looked at the Populate mechanic but never really considered it for this deck. With only Worthy Knight and Selesnya Charm being the only token creation, I feel like the Populate would wiff the majority of the time. The deck I actually considered using the cards you suggest is my cat token deck Feline Feelings, which is a cat tribal built around cats and their ability to make kittens. That deck does not have a SB, which I need to fix, but this is where you would see at lot of these cards at. Rootborn Defenses could be swapped out for Heroic Intervention but losing Hexproof is a large tradeoff...Nothing worse than casting Leonin Warleader the turn prior, then casting Anointed Procession to gear up for an attack only to have Warleader get exiled or destroyed by an instant spell :(

wallisface I agree that The Ozolith is essential in Hardened Scales. with creatures with counters leaving the battlefield all the time. Arcbound Ravager and then modular etc. but this isn't hardened scales. it's more of a humans deck that uses the cards. there's definitely an argument for it, but I think it might just take up slots and get in the way of Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant.but I can definitely see a list running one or maybe two.

DareiJuxis Thanks you for your recommendations.
A few cards were just for the flavor for me and in the end they won several games like Avacyn, Angel of Hope. Along with counters for Kyler, Nils, Discipline Enforcer is a good defense against a friend's Hamza, Guardian of Arashin. And The First Iroan Games was not pulled at this point since i took the card on the Deck.
I just don't like Thalia's Lieutenant. I'm also not a fan of the fact that 95% of Kyler, Sigardian Emissary decks just look and play the same. That's why I don't take some cards in for personal reasons as well as for playful reasons.
I'm also at the point in the deck where it's incredibly difficult for me to part with individual cards because they've either done a good job or I like the flavor so much. If you have any suggestions for Eternal Witness or Hopeful Initiate, I'll be happy to take note of them and think about them.

Seems good, though some things come to mind-
- Increasing Devotion has never impressed me, I think it would be worth putting in Reverent Hoplite over it since it is a human that makes more humans. It may not always make as much, but can make more than Increasing Devotion, and increases creature count. It's even the same cmc, not including the flashback.
- Hopeful Initiate is a synergistic way to remove problematic enchantments or artifacts as a 1 mana human that grows as well.
- I'd like Wild Beastmaster in this since it will naturally be bigger with your commander. Thalia's Lieutenant also comes to mind as a cheap way to boost up the team and add counter synergy.
- Any deck can run more recursion, i.e. Eternal Witness, to get back something important that was lost. She's human as well.
- For card draw, this could use a Rishkar's Expertise. Since this deck does not specifically seem to look to make tokens, it may be better to draw off power rather than number like with Shamanic Revelation, but that's not to say Shamanic is bad.

Also if you wanted to keep the humans theme, you could add in a couple Thalia's Lieutenant and Champion of the Parish over benalish marshal over the goblins i suggested; its less utility and less wide but far more tall. Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip would also benefit the wide plan and give you a nice walker that can toy with your opponents or essentially be a 4/4 indestructible for 1 mana
