Replace 3 x Air Servant with 3 x Sower of Temptation

Replace Water Servant with AEtherling

Replace Jace's Mindseeker and Fleet Swallower with 2x Archetype of Imagination

Replace 2 x Illusionary Armor with 2 more Favorable Winds

Replace Divination, Glimpse the Future and 1-2 others for 3-4 x Amass the Components

Of course these are just suggestions if you really want a card go for it

Some other suggestions

Use Dispel and/or Counterspell and/or Negate

Your creatures are pretty weak, you can control your opponent for a long time but you're missing the dmg to finish it.

If you want to focus more on flying you could use:

Levitation

Darkslick Drake

Guard Gomazoa

Sprite Noble

Kira, Great Glass-Spinner

Dance of the Skywise

Gravitational Shift

Thassa, God of the Sea

Hope i could help :)

elonth on First deck - W/U Artifact-heavy

Mighty Leap is a trap card for new players. It is only useful in limited (draft/sealed formats). You want something that either removes your opponents creatures or draws cards. CARDS TO REMOVE:Glint-Nest Crane isn't a bad card but you do not have a high enough nor good enough artifact density for it to be worth running. The majority of the time you cast it it will say "put the 4 cards that could have helped you on the bottom of your deck in any order"Self-Assembler this is a card that is only good in limited or if you have other assembler creatures besides self assembler. since you aren't running either of the good ones it serves no purpose other then being an expensive card that doesn't do much. you need to axe all 3 of them.

CARDS THAT NEED TO BE IN YOUR MAIN DECKAerial Responder is one of your best creatures. you need to be running it main board. Aegis Angel may be expensive but she protects your best creatures that are vulnerable to removal you should run at least 1 main board. Nebelgast Herald Sadly you don't have enough good spirits to make this guy as powerful as possible, that said there are a lot of cheap spirits that you can buy even at the rare level for standard they would be the corner stone of a budget blue flyer deck. i'll try and make you a budget blue deck under 30 dollars in just a few minutes that i will send you. Experimental Aviator not only makes you more fliers he makes you artifact fliers that get better off of your Foundry Inspector and serpent.

Air Servant while he is expensive at 5 mana and his ability is expensive to activate the primary goal of any flier deck is to control the skies. There are a lot of powerful flying artifact creatures in standard right now. He can tap them down so they can't attack you or block you when you need them.

hey im in agreeance with everything landofmordor said. cut anything that doesn't fit your theme/goal. Desecration Demon, Fetid Imp, Morkrut Necropod, Pestilence Demon (this ones mostly do to its high cost), Shadow Alley Denizen, Thriving Turtle, Artificer's Epiphany (because you have no artifacts), Dramatic reversal (you don't really have much that this helps), Tidy Conclusion (because its way over costed and you have no artifacts), Weave Fate (because Divination is terrible at 3 mana and this is 4), Assassin's Strike (6 mana removal is bad), Crippling Blight (1 mana cards removal that probably won't kill anything is even worse), Dead Weight, Singing Bell Strike, Spectral Prison, Viper's Kiss (basically all of your enchantments are much worse than any instant or sorcery you should be playing).

that leaves

2x Aether Theorist (slow and doesn't help you control much)

1x Aethersquall Ancient (expensive finisher, you could do alot better but if you really like it this one can work i guess).

1x Air Servant (expensive flier that dies to every piece of removal that i can think of that costs 1 or 2 mana. and doesnt really close things out that fast. you can find much better threats).

2x Azure Mage (too mana intensive for any modern deck other than the absolute slowest control deck. generally speaking you can find better cards that give you card advantage)

1x Benthic Giant (this one is hexproof so it does act as a better finisher compared to Air Servant, but it has no evasion which means it will be chump blocked all day).

1x Benthic Infiltrator (you have no cards that interact with the exile effect and its a terrible card in terms of unblockable damage dealers. Tormented Soul would deal damage just as fast at 1 mana).

1x Harbinger of the Tides (actually a pretty good card. play more of these probably)

1x Salvage Drone (somewhat lackluster as a 1 drop)

1x Disperse (decent card)

2x Doom Blade (very solid card. may want to switch to Ultimate Price)

1x Force Away (probably should just be another disperse)

2x Glimmer of Genius (this is a pretty bad draw spell)

3x Select for Inspection (great card).

things you can add

Mana Leak, Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek, Dismember, Boomerang maybe a Tasigur, the Golden Fang or two.
