Check out the Little Kid deck, then. You're already playing most of the cards in your deck, you just have to trim down to 60 cards and get rid of the lands that always come into play tapped.
So (from your current card pool) your deck would look like:
2x Ajani's Pridemate
1x Archangel of Thune
2x Fleecemane Lion
2x Loxodon Smiter
2x Narnam Renegade
3x Qasali Pridemage
2x Renegade Rallier
3x Soul Warden
3x Soul's Attendant
1x Voice of Resurgence
4x Wilt-Leaf Liege
The easiset way to improve this would be to add:
...and take out:
Your sideboard would be:

Spelling the link to your deck right, would probably lead to more comments, awesome or otherwise in nature. Making it a real link, even more so.
Played much edh, have you? so many 1-ofs...
If you want to play aggressively, you have to reduce the amount of 4, 5, and 6-cost creatures, and add more 1 and 2 cmc creatures instead. Buff up the best cards you have for the first 3 turns to a full set. Consistency is the keyword for this: Having 4 enchantments and 1 Ajani's Chosen is the opposite. It is unlikely that in any game you'll get to play an enchantment while you have ajanis chosen on the table. Grazing Gladehart is also a mistake in an aggressive deck - 3 mana for a 2/2, and then you have to wait for a land in order to gain life (which is a very non-aggressive thing to do). Actually: forget about lifegain, unless you use it for something (soul sisters is an example of a deck, that uses lifegain for something (other than just having a lot of life). In many games, you'd rather have cards that attack or disrupt your opponent, rather than give you a bit of life. Aggressive creatures for a selesnia deck, could instead be something like Strangleroot Geist or Dryad Militant. Qasali Pridemage is also a solid creature in selesnya decks, and Voice of Resurgence too, if you don't mind spending a bit on your deck.
Terra Stomper, Arctic Nishoba, Felidar Sovereign, and Jedit Ojanen of Efrava could be removed, to make room for 4 Wilt-Leaf Liege. Probably you can point to games that these 4, big beefy creatures have won for you, or could have won "if only...", but reality is that modern games are over long before you get to play them (including games vs UW cotrol, although they might spend 15 turns actually killing you). You could let go of all 4 enchantments, to make room for 4 Path to Exile - this might look like a boring exchange, that makes your deck predictable. And it is. But it is also the best removal you have in selesnya, at the best cost.
You have a pile of things with landfall. And that is fine. But... landfall isn't really a good mechanic in modern (with a few exceptions, like Steppe Lynx), and it is certainly not good without fetchlands (I know... stupidly expensive pieces of cardboard). Fetchlands also enable revolt, for something like Narnam Renegade and Renegade Rallier.
Lands: You need lands that give both colors of mana, and which enters the battlefield untapped. Brushland, Razorverge Thicket, Sunpetal Grove, Temple Garden, and probably more, have the possibility of coming into play untapped, and definitely improves your deck. Stirring Wildwood is useful in another way, same as Gavony Township.
You have to make a decision with your deck: aggressive, lifegain, or landfall. but currently it loses to lack of focus. I'd say go with GW aggro - it's a good deck for starters, have some good options for sideboard, and you can upgrade from budget cards to more expensive cards as you go along.

The second effect of Oath of Nissa isn't relative to most decks but it digs you to any of your win conditions or lands and lets you keep more opening hands. Compare it to Ancient Stirrings which is arguably the strongest cantrip in the Modern format. Vessel of Nascency is another option that can hit all but 4 cards in the deck and puts any excess lands into the graveyard which you can return later.
For green sources, I'd remove a couple of copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Vesuva and add in some Windswept Heaths or Razorverge Thickets. Even if you run out of lands to fetch with the Heath, you can sacrifice it and bring it back from the graveyard again and again to trigger Landfall.

Also, if your not on a budget run the usual lands like Misty Rainforest, Breeding Pool, Botanical Sanctum, Polluted Delta, Scalding Tarn, Flooded Strand, Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs , Seachrome Coast, Darkslick Shores, Copperline Gorge, Razorverge Thicket, Spirebluff Canal, Blooming Marsh, Hallowed Fountain, Watery Grave, Stomping Ground, Temple Garden, Steam Vents, and Overgrown Tomb (you don't have to run all of these).

To be clear the Wheel of Fortune will most likely only be traded if it is going towards multiple copies of Force of Will or towards a Dual Land. I would like to say that the same goes for the majority of cards listed valued at $60 or more as well but feel free to offer something else none the less, I don't mind looking through binders. Also Prefer to move the RTR shocks Together but again, I will consider Splitting them up for the right offer / offers.
I just listed more of my expensive cards not being used currently, Link to my Binder for more of my cards / lesser wants, thanks!

I love this deck! You are here so I assume you want feedback. I would consider Noble Hierarch, Kitchen Finks, Siege Rhino, and Wilt-Leaf Liege. Also, you need to get in on the fetch lands like Windswept Heath and fast lands like Razorverge Thicket. Also, you may want to go down to 3X on the Stirring Wildwood. Remember the key to speed is hitting you land drops every turn for the first four turns.
Check out my take Abzan Beatdown. I'm no expert, but I think you can get some good mana ideas from my list. While you are there I would love some feedback!
I splashed the black and slowed it up to more of a aggo/midrange. I was running almost your exact game plan before and couldn't make it past combo or control with great consistency. So i evolved...
