I'd definitely go with 4 Farseek s. You have a number of large drops, and getting in a turn early with Thragtusk is a huge tempo play. It also hepls greatly with Bonfire and Fury. I'd probably take out a Pillar of Flame , or even a Silverblade Paladin as you already have Boros Charm give double strike to something, and the Paladin doesn't have that many targets.
Nice deck though, +1.

The main reason I didn't go with 4 Farseek is because I've had several times where I would draw into it when I least need it. I'd rather draw into something like a Selesnya charm than a Farseek towards the late game, but I do get what you're saying about dropping a quick Thragtusk . I think Silverblade Paladin is probably a better choice to keep in here than boros charm because he is a reusable doublestriking creature that I can bond to other nice creatures like Spark Trooper

spark trooper is almost useless though in standard right now because almost any deck will have first strike turn 2 after gatecrash making spark trooper do no damage which means no lifelink.

As of right now I haven't had any problems facing against decks with first strike on turn two (ex: Ash Zealot ) so I'll be leaving him in the mainboard. The main reason he's there is to drop Silverblade Paladin on turn three, Spark Trooper on turn 4, and then swing for 12 with the spark trooper (or 16 if i'm swinging with the paladin as well) and so the first strike won't have a chance to kill my trooper before he does damage.
