if the thing you want is to have a deck focused on flying creatures or spells without good or bad additions, why not make a commander deck? if you already got the colors figured out you could use Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, Azor, the Lawbringer or even Medomai the Ageless. with that combination you got a lot of ways to control the board and protection for your creatures, and add 40 more cards to the deck. Aboshan's Desire, Flood, Tidal Flats, Spirit Bonds, Invocation of Saint Traft, Angelic Favor, Entreat the Angels, Tidal Surge, Decree of Justice, Battle Screech, March of Souls, Descend upon the Sinful, Storm Herd are cards that you could use in commander but not in this deck... if you want to have a reliable way to trigger Sigil of the Empty Throne you can use Flickering Ward, Shimmering Wings, Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Viscerid Armor, Ephara's Enlightenment and others. Aven Mindcensor, Mana Short, Boomerang, Standstill, Magus of the Moat, Bident of Thassa, Sigil of the New Dawn, Hindering Light, Supreme Verdict.

May I recommend Selfless Spirit and Geist of Saint Traft as just good cards that happen to be spirits. Supreme Phantom and Mausoleum Wanderer are great spirit tribal cards. An interesting alternative to Hindering Light could be Spell Queller. I personally love Promise of Bunrei, but thats just me.

HoboKinToken I would keep Immolating Glare as having removal is good and Hindering Light I have never liked as it just feels limited and in my playtesting with it feels like it ends up as a dead card in hand more than you would think.

I would also suggest some artifact/enchantment removal might be good so something like Disenchant in your sideboard

Kinge I was also thinking of replacing Immolating Glare with Hindering Light. Immolating Glare is easier to cast, but Hindering Light has the card draw.

Sure thing. Sorry that took a while:

Out:

In:

Mana base(33 is enough at this average cmc):

That's what I'd do and then playtest it and go tweaking. Hope that helps and also that it wasn't too brutal. For real tweaking please add a list of decks you play against or how a normal game looks like(amount of combo decks, creature decks, control decks per game). You do run lot's of creature spot removal, but I let that in, since you might need it.

Angel's Grace is the best fog effect. It should replace Angelsong

If the goal is Scepter Silence to get to Approach twice, you need different Counterspells.

Mana Leak will fall flat on turn 8.

And Hindering Light is a great card for a sideboard but won't protect your Approach.

I would swap those and the Mana Leaks out for Negate and Remand

I think you are trying to do too many things with this deck. Jeskai Control is a pretty well-established archetype, there's no real need to change it this much in my opinion. The only creatures you need in this deck are the 4x Snapcaster Mage, I'd get rid of everything else. You also have too many shock lands, not enough total lands, not enough color variance, and not enough basics to play around Blood Moon, Field of Ruin, etc. I'd go with 4x Scalding Tarn, 4x Flooded Strand, 2x Hallowed Fountain, 2x Steam Vents, 2x Sacred Foundry, 3x Celestial Colonnade, 3x Island, 2x Plains, and 2x Mountain. Then without all the creatures you can run boardwipes, I'd go with 2x Supreme Verdict and 1x Wrath of God. 3x Cryptic Command, and, to shake things up, 3x Nahiri, the Harbinger and 1x Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.

You're running a lot of questionable spells; I'd cut 4x Hindering Light (too specific), 4x Failure (kind of just like a worse Snapcaster Mage) and 2x Momentary Blink for 4x Opt, 2x Spell Snare, 2x Mana Leak, 2x Logic Knot, and 2x Electrolyze.

buckeyetron I know, I just didn't want to feel like I was taking attention away from this deck.

Spazik008 Prison-style, with Jenara, Asura of War mostly for the colors. Kismet and Winter Orb, supported by Garruk Wildspeaker, Armageddon, and relevant Borderposts. Fill out with some control like Counterspell and Hindering Light and get ready for hate. I'm a control player at heart.
