Elspeth, the Heroic

Planeswalker - Elspeth

[+1] Prevent all damage that would be dealt to ~ by up to one target creature until the beginning of your next turn.
[-2] Exile target creature until ~ leaves the battlefield.
[-6] Destroy all creatures. Put a 1/1 white Spirit creature token with flying onto the battlefield for each creature destroyed this way.

are the spirit tokens white ?
Thematically, she feels more like a teysa planeswalker. Knowing Theros is ''Greek'', I'd say her abilities would be more themed with that. The problem there is, what are the themes of the Greek that can be displayed on a Planeswalker.

Elspeth, Unwilling Hero

Planeswalker -- Elspeth

[+1] Put a 1/1 white Human Soldier token onto the battlefield.
[-3] Creatures you control get +2/+2 until the end of the turn
[-8] You get an emblem with "Creatures you control have first strike and lifelink'' and ''Whenever a nontoken creature you control dies, put 2 1/1 white Human Soldier tokens onto the battlfield.


Just some thoughts. 
Your -3 could probably be a -2. Righteous Charge is not worth losing a planeswalker over. Also, gaining 2 loyalty and putting a token into play might be a bit OP. I would make the + ability +1 and the Ult -6.
the -3 might be a good since a 3 mana uncommon every other turn might be too strong.
eh, you might be right; maybe keep that at -3 and change starting loyalty to 4
Fixed, but I think it's funny how we're nitpicking over a speculated card =p
