Well, I am trying to limit the number of unique cards in each deck. If I were to add the traveler, I would want to take something else out completely. Without that self-imposed limitation, I would definitely favor subbing out a few of the CMC3 cards for some one drops.
BTW, the Elite Vanguard is another good one drop option and introduces the new player to a "Savannah Lion", although the traveler is probably the better of the two.

Thanks cerdra for the comment,
Doomed Traveler is definitely a good consideration. I also like to include some "staples" of the game into the decks. It makes sense to remove a 3 drop, for the sake of the curve. I would probably favor the Veteran Swordsmith, but I hate to break the symmetry (including art) between that and the Veteran Armorsmith.
Mentor of the Meek can be a little complicated, especially if there is an anthem effect in play, and could be removed as well, but the deck would lose a lot of resiliency. I also like the art.
Switching from the Armorsmith to the Traveller would help the deck against the red deck, but none of the other decks are very aggressive and losing the Armorsmith actually would probably weaken the deck.
In short, I like the improvement in the curve, but dislike the loss of Weaponsmith/Armorsmith symmetry, and am reluctant to remove the mentor's resiliency. That breaks about even and the Traveller is definitely a reasonable consideration.
