Gustcloak Savior Discussion

In terms of mana, some other ideas are Dreamscape Artist .... he alllllmost counts as a bird? Technically he does, he's a shapeshifter, but maybe not a flavour win, haha. Probably not good enough. Also, I'd say Paradise Mantle which has a flavour win as it's off the Birds of Paradise idea and, even if only in imagery, gives "wings" (see picture) ;). I was going to recommend Dream Thrush over a signet if you had one, for fixing mana on theme, but you don't have one.
I really like Opt , Brainstorm , and Ponder in my blue decks cause they help me make sure I hit my landrops, or later on get me the cards I need (or skip the cards I don't need). In this awesome bird theme your building up, I think Augury Owl is a great way to fill that niche. Brilliant, in my own mind :). Aven Fateshaper does that too, but he's a little more pricey... except, when he comes out he can keep doing it for ! Awesome.
If you ever find that infinite combo, Apex Hawks might be good in here!
Cloudchaser Eagle is almost like bird tribals very own Acidic Slime ... note quite, but almost. I see you got Kestrel in there, his cheaper counter part (though I guess classified "equal" as kestrel requires two vs. the extra for eagle.
If your playgroup combos off, goes Voltron, or has some crazy creatures that end games, Aven Augur seems like cool utility. If you playgroup is just "good times" though, I do think you should put in Carnivorous Death-Parrot for fun or Cardpecker ;). My playgroup allows 1 unhinged type card, unless it's absolutely broken.
It's too bad Aven Warhawk is so pricey, or else his effect would be great!
This would be fun to play, I can tell. Nice work! So cool to see a tribe with such a tool box.

Love Kaalia, though my deck (shameless plug: Still Better than Dan Brown...) doesn't bother with the dragons as I feel you have to give them a bit more support if you want to make use of the firebreathing abilities lots of them come with. If you've not seen it definitely look into the Dominaria card Helm of the Host which is just filthy with Kaalia. The earlier suggestion of Gustcloak Savior is a good one but you can get a similar effect from Dolmen Gate, which will be out earlier and so can protect Kaalia from her first swing. Plus you still get to do some damage. Do you have any draw/search plans? I know tutors are expensive but you may find yourself with no creatures in hand which is a waste if you want to go down the extra combat phases route. Even just a Phyrexian Arena will greatly raise the probability of drawing a playable creature as the game goes on, or there's Ob Nixilis Reignited who brings creature destruction along with him too! Finally, as you're not heavily into Angel Tribal I'd consider Dust Corona over Angelic Destiny. Cheap and simple way to make your flying Commander unblockable without blue.

Well there's one more that works like that. Reconnaissance
But definitely Reconnaissance

While not a soldier, Hero of Bladehold makes soldiers and is pretty strong in a weenie strategy. With or without her, Anointed Procession could generate additional pressure. Gustcloak Savior seems like a weak link since Odric, Master Tactician can usually do the same job but better. Some removal might be useful in a pinch too; Azorius Arrester doesn't really count. Loyal Sentry and Intrepid Hero are some tribal options if you don't want to dip into the usual suspects (Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Journey to Nowhere, Condemn, Oblivion Ring, etc).
