I'm building a similar deck; but i'm not sure card:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice really fits. 2/5 for 4 + a bit of lifegain (and the occasional populate which you'll mostly likely never use) seems kind of underwhelming.
card:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice seems to have a decent mechanic and it fits into my curve (I needed a 4 drop other than Restoration Angel ). Would more than likely be copying Beast and Angel tokens and not so many Spirit tokens. Dryad Militant seems like a powerhouse but only against certain decks so I have them in the sideboard for now. I didn't really think about Arbor Elf though and that might be a good fit in somewhere. I will consider replacing the Trostani with them. Thanks for the input ZodiacT!
The concept is good but i wouldn't really call it agro as your early game is actually fairly weak I would lose the aggro concept entirely and go for ramping instead Farseek /Arbor Elf in place of mikaeus trostani or even some champions.
Early game against a true aggro deck you may end up being left with little to do your first few turns if you dont' draw into a pilgrim or champion 3-4 turns of no action against agro could mean death
After playing against similar decks using card:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and seeing how much of a beast she really is. I've gone back to my original plan to use her and her new best friend Rhox Faithmender . For the time being (simply because I have them) Entreat the Angels is my big finisher in place of Armada Wurm . Worked pretty well at the last FNM I went to but the mirror matches I faced that had Trostani were just to hard to keep up with. Restoration Angel > Thragtusk = 15 life x 2 with Rhox Faithmender = win!
Replaced Strangleroot Geist with Selesnya Charm . Seems like a better option in the current metagame. Last FNM I played with this deck my Strangle Geists just kept getting slapped with Pillar of Flame . Pretty solid way to deal with an undying creature. Not to say that the creature token from the charm couldn't just as easily get hit by it, but the other options are just down right awesome! I mean a instant speed exile or sneaky trample to toss in on some unsuspecting blocker. I'll take it!
Tone down the utility lands. card:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice is hard enough to cast with all colored-producing lands. I'd be running 1 Grove of the Guardian or 1 Gavony Township . Anything extra and you're just hurting your best card.
I would also remove 2 Arbor Elf for 2 more Farseek and try to fit 2 Armada Wurm s into the deck. They're perfect with mana-dorks and Farseek for ramp, give you 10 life with Trostani, are great targets for Restoration Angel , and become stupid when Soulbonded with either of your Soulbond creatures.
