Creature — Elemental Incarnation

Guile can't be blocked except by three or more creatures.

If a spell or ability you control would counter a spell, instead exile that spell and you may play that card without paying its mana cost.

When Guile is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

If you put in Dovescape , include Guile , as well, for the combo lock.

(Sry I accidentally hit post on the last comment). I'm not done.

You have no threat of reuse. Most control deck at the very least have Snapcaster Mage or the new Mission Briefing . The power to recast any spell in your graveyard is sooo powerful im not even going to explain. It would take too long. Long story short, you need some. I'm thinking you could drop Vapor Snag for a playset of Snapcaster Mage / Mission Briefing .

You need to rethink your threats and creature count. Guile is fine, but have only one copy doesn't really work. Creating a blockade has always been secondary to control deck. I think you should drop AEtherling and both Detention Sphere for 3 copies of Torrential Gearhulk . Gearhulk gives you better control, a free spell and is just better in general.

Your removal is also EXTREMELY expensive. Particularly, Blessed Light . Path to Exile is probably the best modern-legal removal in the game. My thought are get rid of Blessed Light and Bring to Trial for a playset of it.

Again, creatures don't matter. Which makes Valor Made Real COMPLETELY useless. I'm thinking get rid of that and have 3x copies of Guile .

Suggestions in total: Snapcaster Mage

Torrential Gearhulk

Serum Visions

Mana Leak

Path to Exile

Mission Briefing

Yo, you definitely want Guile in here. May not be a bird, but its chunky, can't be blocked easily, makes your counter spells better, and most importantly has the BEST interaction with Dovescape .

Guile will let you basically make as many bird tokens as you'd like when Dovescape is live, all you have to do is cast a non-creature spell once.

(Also, it kinda looks like a bird)

Hey, I noticed you mentioned Sejiri Refuge as a card draw spell in your deck description.

Dovescape could be a fun/silly addition in this deck. In combination wiht Guile you can flood your board with tokens. Kangee, Aerie Keeper buffs also the birds of your opponents so you have to keep this in mind if you add Dovescape .

Dovescape + Guile =Infinite bird tokens

Hey this looks like a good start but here are some more suggestions.

Swap Tempest Caller , for something else like Sleep which makes you a drake token also.

Swap Coldsteel Heart for either Fellwar Stone or Mind Stone .

Swap Salvager of Secrets for Archaeomancer .

Swap Sage-Eye Avengers for Guile .

Swap Spiketail Drakeling for Lullmage Mentor .

Swap Hall of Triumph for maybe Coat of Arms .

Also consider swapping Perplexing Chimera for Docent of Perfection  Flip.

I will think of more over time, hope this helps!

Eye of the Storm will also shut down a lot of decks, and it will at least turn off the removal for Lavinia. Release to the Wind and Spell Queller are hard removal spells with Lavinia. Also, you should probably be running Idyllic Tutor , Enlightened Tutor , and Mystical Tutor to get your lock pieces. Curse of Echoes , Hive Mind , and Helm of Awakening only work for you, and you can also include Pact of Negation and Intervention Pact combo with Hive Mind to kill players not in that color. You're also running a lot of counterspells, so Guile + Dovescape is a nasty combo.

Yikes. Since you're building this kind of deck and seem to already have the tutors, I recommend the Guile + Dovescape combo.
