I think this deck would probably be improved a lot by adding more 1-drops to speed it up; games in which your first action is to play a turn 2 Hanweir Militia Captain or Thalia's Lieutenant are going to be difficult to win because it takes too long for your deck to really get going. I suggest some Avacyn's Pilgrims (and/or Noble Hierarchs if you have the money) and Champion of the Parishs to give the deck some powerful turn 1 plays. I would take out the Always Watching s since they don't affect your tokens; if you want ways to pump up your creatures Mayor of Avabruck or Metallic Mimic seem like a better fit.
I suggest removing Murder Investigation; it can be powerful but it's also pretty clunky and without a reliable way to kill whatever it's attached to there are going to be too many games where it's a do-nothing card. I'm also pretty sceptical of Pious Evangel Flip; it seems like a lot of mana for something that's not much better than a Soul's Attendant.
All that being said, I think the biggest concern with the deck as it stands is the mana-base. In a 3-colour deck without many dual lands, you're running a pretty big risk of having games where you can't cast the cards in your hand because you just don' have the right colours for the job. I would strongly consider taking the out of the deck and going for a straight Selesnya and looking into adding Sunpetal Grove, Temple Garden, Razorverge Thicket, Windswept Heath, Brushland and/or Horizon Canopy as your budget permits.

How does the 1x World Breaker work for you? Would you ever consider cutting a land (say Razorverge Thicket) for a second?

You need more white mana than blue, and you need it earlier. I think Botanical Sanctum would be better as a Razorverge Thicket or another Flooded Strand. An additional fetchland would be useful for various reasons anyway.

fast lands like Razorverge Thicket, Concealed Courtyard, and Blooming Marsh are options as well, although if you are bent on using Elspeth Tirel, the life loss from the fetches and shocks would be Negated pretty quickly.
maybe even Khalni Garden???
Mycoloth is just begging to get blown out by removal that is cheap and instant speed in modern. the "eggs in one basket" scenario isnt the best plan unless you're bogles, or have a way to protect him.
no one drops? no removal?
i built a similar list a while back. never actually put it together or playtested, but you are welcome to use what you want out of it:

thanks for the response QuantumSkies
I like the mana base you wrote except it feels a little heavily weighted towards blue mana for this deck when I need white and green far more consistantly. I will play around with some proxy lists and see how the mana base plays for me but I will probably be swapping the Botanical Sanctum for the Razorverge Thicket.
