Didn't think about Sigarda. I would probably replace Trostani with her. Silverblade Paladin looks good in it too, but you can't replace Loxodon Smiter. He's too good.

4 groves seems like way too many, especially in such a colour intensive deck. Even 3 is too much.

Three of them gives you an average of one per game, two tops if it runs long. The deck, while a little color intensive, has eleven lands that can take care of that.

here is the version that I'm working on, it's pretty much a ramp/lifegain/beatdown/card advantage machine I love this deck right now

// Lands
4 [RTR] Temple Garden
1 [ISD] Gavony Township
4 [RTR] Grove of the Guardian
4 [M13] Sunpetal Grove
8 [M13] Forest (4)
3 [ISD] Plains (1)

// Creatures
1 [AVR] Champion of Lambholt
2 [RTR] Trostani, Selesnya's Voice
4 [RTR] Loxodon Smiter
1 [M13] Acidic Slime
4 [M13] Arbor Elf
4 [ISD] Avacyn's Pilgrim
4 [M13] Elvish Visionary
2 [M13] Thragtusk
4 [AVR] Restoration Angel
1 [AVR] Sigarda, Host of Herons
1 [M13] Silklash Spider
2 [M13] Mwonvuli Beast Tracker

// Spells
4 [M13] Farseek
1 [AVR] Conjurer's Closet
1 [AVR] Moonsilver Spear

// Sideboard
SB: 4 [M13] Oblivion Ring
SB: 2 [RTR] Selesnya Charm
SB: 2 [AVR] Champion of Lambholt
SB: 1 [RTR] Trostani, Selesnya's Voice
SB: 2 [M13] Garruk, Primal Hunter
SB: 2 [AVR] Conjurer's Closet
SB: 2 [M13] Thragtusk

between pilgrim, arbor elf, and farseek, your mana is really good. Beast tracker is pretty good right now, usually he just acts as psudo copies of Sigarda (who is incredible in a lot of matchups), but can also search up the spider (especially now with nivmizit, entreat, and spirit tokens roaming around) and slime (for either land destruction, or answers for opposing artifacts). Trostani is also incredible in this deck, he has a huge back end for defense, and he copies beasts, angels, and most importantly elementals. Giving you a way to break a stall (which is very important since most decks where your going to be in a situation where the board gets gummed up, they will have bonefire and your wont). The spear I've only played once, and it was a massive beating. Since you can swing with any creature, and then move the spear over to the angel token you generate, and then create an army of angels to overwhelm your opponent.
