Trostani Discordant Discussion

@Swetybalzack I have considered Trostani Discordant and have it in another tokens deck. It is a great card and definitely fits the theme. The only issue I have with it is it fits where Tendershoot Dryad sits in the curve. Because of the synergy with Ajani's Welcome and Ajani's Pridemate I think it provides more value than Trostani in this case.
I hadn't considered Song of Freyalise though. That looks to be a great replacement for New Horizons and perhaps 2 of the Llanowar Elves. I will definitely try that out tonight. Thanks for the suggestion.

Have you thought about using Song of Freyalise and/or Trostani Discordant? Trostani is nice because it's a static buff to all your creatures and nets you 2 1/1 lifelinkers. Song will just help you bust out more big baddies by turn 3-4 because you'll tap your hawks in addition to the elves for mana.
Just an idea! :D I like the deck :3

multimedia - so I took the previous iteration of this deck, without the Marches, and I know how powerful they are, and brought it to 1 FNM, 1 Saturday Showdown and a Sunday Clash (something we do where I'm at), and I went 4-0, 3-0, 4-0. The decks faced were U/R Infinity Storm, Selesnya Tokens, 2 variations of Golgari reanimator/undergrowth, Mono Red Runaway burn, Boros Angels, Boros Burn, Jeskai Control and I think 1 Esper control.
Most matchups, the easiest side out was the Loxodons, they can sometimes be clunky when you really want to powershift your way through the match up. My sideboard runs 2 Sorcerous Spyglass and 2 Shalai, Voice of Plenty and these proved to be back breaking for most control matchups. Lava Coil is a problem however, and Trostani Discordant proved life changing for Shalai's toughness. That being said, those are some impossibly nutty hands and often I lost my Shalai to a Coil.
Eventhough he's not an elf, I'm thinking that Benalish Marshal is a must have in the red matchups. isn't impossible to get on turn 3 with temple gardens and sunpetals, and to play a turn 2 Steely Boy then Turn 3 Benalish, or Pelt into Benalish is a pretty strong play.
Another often benched card was in fact Pelt Collector, as fast as this deck gets, there are times where you want Llanowar on 1, rather than Collector and he comes down if you have a consecutive play... however, he's a real easy target for Shock and Lightning Strike.
I found the +4 health from Knight of Autumn to be a real life saver in some of the midrange matchups. I also want to put Nullhide Ferox x1 back in my side and I think Carnage Tyrant x 1 for the u/r Counterburn deck. Assure//Assemble (dunno how to tag this) is a great card for Carnage especially with all the white boardwipes in standard right now.
Anyway, I like the previous iteration of the deck and I think the March version is good too, I don't have the marches, but I'll plan on winning some in the future to try this version out.
I still think we have a hard time vs. bant turbo fog and some variations of x/b and x/r can really put a dent in our running. Keep it up dude!
Also I might add, if your opponent cannot deal with an Elvish Clancaller, and you have 6 mana, your stuff gets out of hand real fast.

I'd say Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice has the best art in my opinion, followed by, in no particular order, Flight of Equenauts, Justice Strike, Ledev Champion, Legion Guildmage, and Trostani Discordant.

Hey! I'm a huge fan of this archetype and I really like your list, I think your curve is a little heavy in a way it doesn't have to be though. At the 3 slot, you have alot of cards and alot of really toxic mana conflicts, particularly between Steel Leaf Champion and Benalish Marshal. I think that its good to have the lord effect of the marshall, however, you can get it in a better form. Trostani Discordant will give you the same effect, on a body that can't die to Lightning Strike and give you two more bodies (it's almost a free conclave tribunal with convoke), and it moves power from the 3 slot to the 5 slot. Doing this would also allow you to run Llanowar Elves, which with Temple Garden and Sunpetal Grove still allows you to get a turn two Resplendent Angel or Steel Leaf Champion without having to worry about bricking on a Benalish Marshal. I'd cut the Benalish Marshals and the Conclave Guildmage's and maybe a land or an Assure / Assemble or two for a playset of Llanowar Elves and 2 Trostani Discordant!

Just updated with the new budget version, Budget Elves of Ravnica.
The strategy is some what different to account for the considerable decrease in deck price. Notable main deck cards excluded are: Pelt Collector, Steel Leaf Champion, Trostani Discordant, Knight of Autumn and Temple Garden. It's also Selesnya tribal Elves with Elvish Clancaller using convoke with Emmara, Soul of the Accord, Venerated Loxodon and Conclave Tribunal. The difference is I've added a ramp strategy with Marwyn, the Nurturer and Druid of the Cowl. The added ramp is for main deck Shalai, Voice of Plenty. The budget version can go aggressive with Loxodon or midrange/ramp with Marwyn/Shalai/Loxodon.
I decided to add main deck Shalai over main deck Whisperer because Shalai is much better against aggro than Whisperer. With the loss of Steel Leaf Champion in the budget version than the power level is decreased a lot therefore I need to add something that could recoup some power level; Shalai with ramp is my answer. Whisperer is still a powerful strategy with Elves, but for now he'll go in the sideboard for midrange/control matchups.
The sideboard is much different to also account for the decrease in deck price. Most notable card excluded is Vivien Reid. Unfortunately, Vivien is not a budget card for Standard. In her place I've added more Whisperer and Find / Finality. Find is quickly becoming one of my favorite cards in Guilds of Ravnica; I find my self putting it in all my green decks. Find is very good at recovery after removal or nonSettle board wipe; two mana to recur two different creatures is very good.
Finality is good too especially with Marwyn and Shalai and I could see adding some Woodland Cemetery to play it, but for now I'm leaving black out in the manabase. With the lose of Vivien, the budget version needs alternative ways of card advantage for midrange/control matchups which Find provides. Citywide Bust replaces Settle the Wreckage and is a significant downgrade, but it's a necessary answer to Carnage Tyrant or Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Reclamation Sage replaces Knight of Autumn.
