    They look fine to me. I was testing my own deck on Cockatrice and it turned out pretty decent, and I even ran into a couple of builds just like these. They gave pretty hard matchups, so I'd stick with what you have for now, and adjust later depending on what the meta turns out like.

    4 Silverblade Paladin
    4 Sublime Archangel
    2 Wolfir Silverheart
    4 Arbor Elf
    4 Loxodon Smiter
    4 Wayfaring Temple

    Spells

    Ah good ol' GW Midrange. I love this deck, it brings the beats and doesn't stop. Although I'd imagine certain control decks give it grief, no?

    In game 1 they can be a pain but for games 2 and 3, Rootborn Defenses really hurts them.
    T1 mana dork, T2 Wayfaring, t3 call or charm t4 just keep going with what's on the board and wait for the wipe and Rootborn. It normally results in a scoop.

    If the are heavy Detention Sphere then you can also drop in the Sundering Growth.

    Yeah Growth and Defenses are automatic sideboard/mainboard depending on the meta.

    I've continued testing the deck and is has proven consistent. Thus far the weak link seems to be Wolfir Silverheart. I have tried several options to replace it but haven't fallen in love with any of them.

    Of course Thragtush was decent as a hard to get rid of beat stick but he wasn't a great closer for the top of my curve.
    Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, was ok and offered a little synergy with populate but once again she didn't knock my socks off as she once again wasn't a huge finisher but was handy if I had gotten behind on the race
    I also tried Sigarda, Host of Herons. Nice and harder to remove but if I was winning she wasn't really needed and if I was behind she didn't stem the bleeding.
    Lastly I gave Armada Wurm a try and it was a good boon when I got it out. Value, Trample and token... In short it provided alot of synergy with other parts of the deck but getting to 6 mana is a little iffy in a timely manner as typically I have either won or am in trouble before that point.

    So I am open to ideas. Please help me fill these last to slots.
