I would suggest:
@ ViLeXSerpent: I reserve cards that valuable for trade with things I either really need or that are equally valuable - possibly both. Currently Frontline Medic is neither. I will be glad to trade for things like Sphinx's Revelation , Mutavault and the like. Sorry!
@ Nthnbnntt09: Sadly I don't think I have those Slaughter Games anymore. Other than that, that stuff is up for trade - I am potentially interested in your Lotleth Troll , Varolz, the Scar-Striped , the Frontline Medic you mentioned... It's kind of hard to peruse your temporary binder. I'll get back to you in a day or two.
Here is Travis Woo's article about his Complex Dredge deck, which gnarlicide mentioned. This deck offers an alternate, more controlling play style and utilizes powerful combinations such as Life from the Loam and Raven's Crime , as well as Unburial Rites reanimating things like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite .
Note that these decks aren't the most competitive, and rarely see tournament success. Unfortunately people often pack sideboard graveyard-hate for decks like Melira Pod, and that hate also happens to hose dredge. These decks can still be fun to play though, and could succeed in smaller tournaments depending on the metagame.
I would put in Elspeth, Sun's Champion for Chandra, depending how you want to play. Chandra is good if you want to be a caster, but you've only got 8 instant/sorcery spells to 14 creatures and an emphasis on pumping out tokens. Elspeth does that like its going out of style, plus she can destroy creatures, or make yours swing for potentially lethal.
I'm not sure if Gideon even really fits, but that's totally your call since I've never played with him.
As awful as it sounds, I might try to fit Phantom General into the Lightning Strike slots. You've got Mizzium Mortars for a 2-drop burn (but MM has Overload), and Chained to the Rocks for control. There's so much out there to counter burn spells (straight counterspells like Negate , hexproofs like Ranger's Guile , protection like Gods Willing , regenerate like on Lotleth Troll ). You might just be better off zerging your opponent with beefy weenies.
In sum: What do you value more: large soldier swarms, or trying to burn creatures? My inclination would be the former to be more effective in today's meta.
I usually don't get too offensive with the Lotleth Troll , usually use him as a cheap regenerating blocker, but if things are set up right, an Enlarge or Giant Growth can definitely make him a bit of a menace
