Looks like a fun deck! A few things, you're really going to want to address the mana base, you're heavier on the white than green, so I'd run more white sources than green. Lands like Horizon Canopy, Fortified Village, and Temple of Plenty are great budget lands. Since you're running 6 drops, I would strongly recommend going up to 24 lands as well.
Some soldiers to consider would be
Thraben Inspector, great stats for the cost and the clue lets you replace her whenever you need to.
Thraben Standard Bearer, which just lets you turn dead cards into soldiers.
Thalia, Heretic Cathar Fantastic soldier that can mess up your opponents plans and let you win.
Sergeant-at-Arms the versatility this guy offers is very nice.
Archetype of Courage is a kind of pseudo-lord
Sunblade Elf A cheap soldier that turns into an anthem later in the game
Bishop of Rebirth while not a soldier, allows you to return your dead soldiers to life
Other cards to consider
Elspeth, Sun's Champion a bit pricey, but an incredible game ender
Elspeth, Knight-Errant the Sun's Champion's little sister
Declaration in Stone Removal is pretty important to staying alive and winning the game.
Ulvenwald Mysteries A card that punishes your opponent for killing your dudes and refills your board
Harmonize Straight up card draw
Heroic Intervention Save your dudes
Ajani Unyielding His plus will almost always get you at least one thing, and his other two abilities are good too
Hope this was a little helpful

Nice deck! As a Selesnya fan myself, I agree with your metagame thoughts. As far as your deck goes, few things:
I would actually prefer having Dryad Militant in the maindeck over Loam Lion. The Lion doesn't benefit from the bonus that Wilt-Leaf Liege provides and Dryad Militant can be a real pain for decks that rely on their graveyard (ex. Snapcaster Mage).
Sunblade Elf isn't a terrible choice, but I would prefer his spot be given to a creature that can help you speed up the game a little. Green doesn't provide much of a flying presence so having a creature like Birds of Paradise I feel takes care of 2 issues: it allows you a flying presence on the battlefield to deal with threats you wouldn't normally be able to deal with, and it also allows you to slap a Rancor on it for a nice attacking option as well (aside from providing me mana of any color!). This comes in handy more than you think, and having a turn 2 Loxodon Smiter can really turn the tide in your favor early on.
That's all I'll say for now, as any more comments will have your deck looking exactly like mine, haha.

I think your deck would benefit from a few more 1-drops like Narnam Renegade or Sunblade Elf to help ensure you can use all your mana efficiently in the first few turns. Metallic Mimic is always good in aggressive tribal decks too.
If you're looking for more help, you could try posting your deck in the Advertise Your Tribal Deck thread.

Interesting deck, Aespinoza10. I've always liked the Heroic mechanic, even though it doesn't hold up very well in the Modern meta.
As it is, you have more spells than creatures... which means you're more likely to have a handful of spells, and nothing to cast them on.
My personal take on cuts? Sunblade Elfx4, Common Bondx2, Hardened Scalesx2, Gods Willingx2, Mutagenic Growthx2, Path to Exilex1, Seeds of Strengthx1, Sigil Blessingx4, Rancorx2, Forestx1, Giant Growthx4
Just these cuts should put you at 60.
Some things to add/think about?
This is just from a cursory glance, but what do you think?

Sweet, I've been looking for G/W ideas for a good while, and I like how this deck looks! +1!
I wonder if the mana base would benefit from Razorverge Thicket or Wooded Bastions? I understand the "painful mana" problems! Also, could Dryad Militant be another curve-filling option? Even just swapping out a couple of Sunblade Elfs for some might be an idea (especially since Militants get +2/+2 from Wilt-Leaf Liege).

Nice! I made a pretty similar budget GW deck and it can do pretty well considering how inexpensive it was. I've been trying out Kessig Prowler Flip recently because I had been disappointed by the Warden of the First Tree. Soldier of the Pantheon, Sunblade Elf, and Narnam Renegade are budget options I'm considering for one drops.
