I liked how the deck came out. R1 kill some guy playing R/B elementals. R2 lose the toss, guy goes t2 Blackguard, t3 Pestermite, t4 Moonglove Winnower. G2 I kill his first Blackguard, lose to the second one.

I think Xcg might be favorite archetype of this format.
I would've run -1 Redeem the Lost, -1 Lignify, -1 Fertilid, +1 Lys Alana Bowmaster, +2 Gilt-Leaf Ambush. Your deck's a little short on creatures and could use a couple more Elves, and the Ambush is great with Bramblewood Paragon and Meadowboon.
Hrmmm... 14 guys usually feels like enough, and Reach is like guy 15+. I guess the extra Elves gives the deck more of a tribal feel, but they all seem worse than at least the first two. Fertilid I could see cutting.
Pack 7: I'd probably have taken Fistful of Force over the Vivid land since it's a quality spell you always want, but I can see the logic in your pick.

Pack 36: Bowmaster over Fertilid, especially with ~9 Elf spells already taken. The odds of a Fertilid coming back are much better, too.

Pack 37: Ambassador Oak over Redeem the Lost; it's not even close in my book. You even had Paragon to make this into a 4/4 and a 2/2!

36: Maybe I should have planned to see a Fertilid on the way back, but Bowmaster has always been unimpressive to me. Obviously losing to Faeries made me want to start it, but except in that matchup, it usually seems not so good.

37: I think Redeem the Lost is simply a better card, and my warrior theme is minor.
How is Redeem the Lost that much better? If you don't get it back it's just a combat trick that doesn't always allow a trade, whereas Oak is always 4 power for 4 mana, and since you have Harbinger to set up your Paragon it may even be 6 power for 4 mana... You also have 7 warriors, so it's not soooo minor.

Redeem saves your guys from removal, it's a combat trick. And if you have a decent clash card on top, can turn into an alpha strike enabler.

Oak has good synergy with the Paragon, but that's the only card.
