I'll go ahead and play devil's advocate here and suggest that orzhov humans is a great budget deck archetype that can be both aggressive and controlling at the same time. It also easily supports Grand Abolisher , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , and even Starfield Mystic if you have a critical mass of Oblivion Ring s, Pacifism s, and such. Champion of the Parish is a key card of the deck, as is Thalia's Lieutenant . After that, it depends on what kind of gameplan you want to build around. My take on orzhov humans, Assassination Squadron makes use of tappers like Gideon's Lawkeeper and Minister of Impediments to combo and destroy creatures with assassins like Royal Assassin and Gideon Jura . With access to the legacy card pool and a bigger budget, King's Assassin and Deathbringer Liege could be on the table too. Tribal support like Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic , or Door of Destinies is nice, but it certainly isn't a requirement. (Fun fact: when I built this deck years ago, Lieutenant cost much more than the Door. Funny how things can change so drastically.)

Creating tokens tends to work well in this kind of deck because both human lords can buff and/or be buffed by them. Gather the Townsfolk and Thraben Doomsayer are the usual suspects, and I personally like Mentor of the Meek as a way to keep the hand topped off. If you want to go for a lifegain plan with Kambal at the helm, Vizkopa Guildmage is a budget Sanguine Bond on a stick. While certainly not budget, Serra Ascendant and Westvale Abbey  Flip can also work in such a build. Now that I think about it, a lot of soul sisters staples happen to be humans ( Auriok Champion , Martyr of Sands , Ranger of Eos , Soul's Attendant , Soul Warden , Speaker of the Heavens , etc.) Another idea is to focus on maximum destruction and exile. High Priest of Penance is a good way to make opponents think twice about their decisions in combat, and I've been having reasonable success with Mangara of Corondor as a sort of slow O-Ring that happens to trigger the lords. Humans are such a common tribe that there's no end to the number of directions you can steer them in if you really want to.

Looks like a fun deck! I may put something similar together with what I have.

For budget removal Id recommend Condemn and Reciprocate

For more tokens Gather the Townsfolk , Lingering Souls (if you want to splash back), Spectral Procession , Promise of Bunrei

For enchantments I’d look at Ajani's Welcome , Legion's Landing  Flip (also taps for land), Leyline of the Meek , Honor the Pure and Intangible Virtue .

As far as creatures go I’d try to get more tokens out. Maybe Thraben Doomsayer , Doomed Traveler , Impassioned Orator or Soul's Attendant

Some instants would be Make a Stand to protect tokens from a board wipe

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.

Thraben Doomsayer appears twice in your deck

Maybe try Gift of Immortality to abuse ETBs and get a recurring target for Silvar

So the way you put it in parenthetical:

Serra's Herald

Creature - Angel (Mythic)

Flying, Lifelink

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may sacrifice Serra's Herald, if you do, scry X, where X is a quarter of your life total, rounded down.

7/3


Using a favorite mechanic of mine, Fateful Hour (Break of Day, Clinging Mists, Thraben Doomsayer, Gather the Townsfolk, Faith's Shield, Gavony Ironwright, Spell Snuff, and Village Survivors): and an effect I like- Revival / Revenge


Palliate Life

Sorcery (Rare)

Double your life total. Target opponent loses half their life, rounded up.

Fateful hour - If you have 5 or less life, you may have two target players exchange life totals instead.

Have a Similar Demon worship/human sacrifice with some extra synergies. Basically, it generates small tokens to feed the demons, but also generates huge flyers. Starting with 2x Ravenous Demon  Flip and 3x Demon of Catastrophes, cheap and lethal, just because you can get short of tokens. 2 copies of Rite of Belzenlok, wich generates creatures to sacrifice and at the third turn since you cast cast it, generates a huge flying 6/6 Demon token with trample. My main token generator creatures are 4 copies of Doomed Traveler and 2 copies of Thraben Doomsayer. I use 2x Skirsdag Flayer as a crature removal wich at the same time triggers Skirsdag High Priest ability (4 copies). Which is great. Tokens generators spells:3x Lingering Souls, 4x Gather the Townsfolk, 2xPromise of Bunrei, 1x Increasing Devotion.Some more synergies: 2 copies of Teysa Karlov, witch doubles tokens when Doomed Traveler dies, also giving vigilance and lifelink to ALL you tokens, including the demons generated from Rite of Belzenlok and Skirsdag High Priest, which is pretty solid. The rest of the Deck includes removals: 2x Bone Splinters, 4x Mortify. 2x Altar's Reap also feed the Sacrifice/Trigger mechanism giving extra cards. 2x Westvale Abbey  Flip for flavour and, of course, a 9/9 flying, lifelink, Indestructible hasted finisher!
