If you liked the idea of tokens with Voice of Resurgence to make the Elementals big, deel on Magic Online finished 4–0 in a Standard Daily with a list you might be interested in.

Voice of Resurgence

deel uses Call of the Conclave; Voice of Resurgence; Selesnya Charm; Lingering Souls; Midnight Haunting; Advent of the Wurm; Increasing Devotion; and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad to make tokens, with Intangible Virtue; Collective Blessing; Gavony Township; and the same Sorin, Lord of Innistrads to make them bigger. In other words, deel makes a huge number of very large tokens. In fact, every card in the deck makes mana, makes tokens, or makes tokens bigger, except for two Putrefys.

Aggressive decks are under a ton of pressure to kill this deck, as it won't take long to get all the pieces in play to completely dominate the board. Decks that are relying on creatures like Thragtusk to block should also find their defenses overwhelmed. Sweepers are effective but fairly quickly, each card demands its own, and Lingering Souls; Increasing Devotion; Sorin, Lord of Innistrad; and Voice of Resurgence are even better.

I like the Renounce the Guilds in the sideboard, especially since there will be times when you want to sacrifice your own Voice of Resurgence, but I'd definitely want more Ray of Revelations, since I see hexproof as one of the more threatening decks for this strategy. I'm also surprised not to see any Rootborn Defenses.
