I'm not sure if green really adds anything to this deck, but it certainly takes things away. For one, you are now running 4 colors instead of 3 and doing away with the best land in the format (Moorland Haunt). Second, you have dropped the best creature in the format (delver).

The birds do sure up the mana base a bit, but is it really worth running 6 mana dorks for a deck with no cards over 4 cmc?

To me, it just seems like the deck is trying to be too many things. This is definitely worse than both esper delver (which wins through delver much of the time) and Mono-green aggro (which wins through equipment attached to a little guy much of the time).

So, while the deck below will definitely be capable of winning some matches, it will be less consistent than either of the above heavily-tested deck types.

If you do want to stick with it and try to make it viable, though, I would at least remove spectral flight. It's not a very good card, and it is not seen in professional-level decks. Many of your creatures fly already, anyway. Mental missteps can also be removed or relegated to the sideboard, as they are too situational to run mainboard. This frees up 4 slots, and it seems like war and peace is your best bet here, imo.

Good luck.

Strangleroot Geist isn't worth twisting the mana base for.
