Bring them in, pump them up and swing them out.Sideboard still need some brewing.
This deck is pretty straightforward; You build an army of flying tokens, increase their potency with anthems and attack for big damage from the air. The humans tokens are mainly there for chump blocking.
you need alot more one drops...however, if it controls well enough for a few turns it looks as though it runs smooth. talrand doesnt work for this because its all about instant and sorceries. you have 11 enchantments. geist on your sideboard is actually great mainboard. espeically if you have resto angel to flash her.

with only running your curve at 4 mana, you could kill the mana to 22 as long as you shuffle well. you will get flooded more times than none

Thank you guys for commenting.
@OFABass I agrre that having more T! option would be good, but i don't know what to put in it. I'm trying to keep the deck post rotation so Ponder is not really an option. I sort of like Talrand, Sky Summoner here. Even with 11 enchantment, i seems to always have a sorcery or instant available the next turn. Maybe your right though. I'll keep an eye on this next time i try my deck against a real person. I'm also considering maindecking Geist-Honored Monk As a 1 or 2 of, but Restoration Angel would probably not be useful in this deck since the monk would be her only target.
@user:CrimsonKing69 I Like Crusader of Odric too, but the objective of the deck is to raise an army of flying token. Sadly the crusader does not contribute to this and thus does not take any advantage of the anthems. My non-flying human tokens mainly serves as chump blockers.

Now I know that Odric, Master Tactician isn't a flying token...but still...
'Whenever Odric, Master Tactician and at least three other creatures attack, you choose which creatures block this combat and how those creatures block.'
With tokens, it's easy to get at least three other creatures attacking...and you can choose that your opponent doesn't block.
Maybe you should leave out the Favorable Winds and put some Angel of Jubilation in instead seeing that it boosts everything (even your chump blockers). And it's a creature instead of an enchantment (so it can actually do something...8 enchantments is quite a lot seeing that they don't do anything by themself).

I built a token deck few weeks ago based on a similar flying token strategy, However, where my deck differs is the addition of black as a third color, as opposed to a splash. My Esper token build runs Bloodline Keeper Flip , Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , and the all powerful Skirsdag High Priest . I dont think tarland is a good addition to this deck, just because of how many chances you get to take advantage of talrands abillity. I suggest (as others have) of putting in Odric, Master Tactician and Angel of Jubilation in his place.

I'm still skeptic about Odric, Master Tactician . It's a good card, but considering most of my tokens have flying, i think most of his potential would be wasted. He's also a 4 drop which i already have 7. i'd prefer put a Talrand, Sky Summoner or Put 2 more tokens with card:Talrand's Invocation on T4.
You suggestion on Angel of Jubilation is interesting though. My only concern is her 4 CMC again. I really need to fix my curve and adding more 4 CMC will not help much.
