a couple cards sound good here, Thalia's Lieutenant is great even thought he is not a wizard. Banisher Priest, while not a wizard he is a cleric, close enough. Magus of the Moat is cool to.

Cards that I struggle to see the relevance of:Dictate of Karametra seems bad to me, you don't play many instants so after 1 game your opponents will begin to see it coming and it only gives you a small advantage at first, your opponents can likely take a lot more advantage of it than you.
Elspeth, Knight-Errant seems like a very weak planeswalker and could easily be removed in order to facilitate better support.Garruk, Primal Hunter also seems weaker, his only relevant effect on landing being to make you a 3/3 which will get steam rolled by any creature strategy.
Gideon, Champion of Justice is terrible isn't it?How often do you find Kiora, the Crashing Wave to be a waste of 4 mana to prevent 1 source's damage?Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath is fairly irrelevant, you drop him and gain a teeny bit of life or get a 5/5 token but reduce his loyalty to ping-range or wait for an irrelevant emblem.The remaining planeswalkers are all okay or at least obviously usable when they drop or if they attain critical mass. Speaking of which, there are obvious upgrades that are missing here.Doubling Season, you just have to play this card. You can't not play this card in EDH superfriends if you have green access. It sets up planeswalkers to instant-ult and doubles tokens you produce to block with.Rings of Brighthearth means every planeswalker ability gets doubled. Unfortunately this does not double the counters added.
You could go harder into token doublers with Primal Vigor,Parallel Lives, and Anointed Procession, which might give you enough blockers over time to start building the justice league.If you are going instead to preventing damage to planeswalkers you need cards like:Moat, Magus of the Moat, Humility, Sphere of Safety, Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, maybe Privileged PositionYou need more tutors. Planeswalker-specific or not. Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor for a start.It's usually good in blue to have one or two instant-speed responses like counterspells. The most relevant one I can think of is Fuel for the Cause although it's not a great one anyway. You seem like you have board control fairly well locked. This is probably your only answer to cards like Merciless Eviction or the new red spell from Ixalan I forget. Also, since you're always wiping the board and filling everyone else's graveyard why not run a Rise of the Dark Realms as an alternate win-con?

Obvious missing planeswalkers:If you choose to run very few creatures who are all extremely relevant, the duel deck Ajani, Valiant Protector actually acts as a pseudo-tutor for them, which could be very relevant with deepglow skate.
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver can remove some serious threats, make players more wary about reorganizing the top of their library, and potentially net you blockers, dorks, etc. if it sticks. The ult is a win-con.
Elspeth Tirel can create token blockers, can setup to ult the following turn as a boardwipe, incidental life gain if you are going hard with tokens.
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar similar to Elspeth he makes tokens but his ult is more relevant to building a token-defensive board state, can be used right away, and if he sticks around he can beat face for damage while gaining loyalty. Rotating out of standard so he will be cheaper now.Jace Beleren, less of a "I win card" but less likely to be shot down right away in a political meta. Everyone drawing a card doesn't draw attention, and you can selectively choose to replace him in your hand with the minus as well if you just want to "cycle" him. The ult is fairly irrelevant so you can basically treat this as a semi-permanent draw engine.
If you upgrade your land base and throw in an urborg/cabal coffers combination you should go for Liliana of the Dark Realms since she can tutor for dual types, turn your swamps into super-engines and act as a removal for even indestructibles if you get there.Nissa, Vastwood Seer can also be good, she gives you land drop, she's relevant if you draw her late and flip her, you can potentially get tricky and flip her using lands like Evolving Wilds after you block an opponent, and her flip side provides ramp/filtration, a token blocker, or potentially a board of 6/6 creatures. also she re-enters so works with doubling seasonTamiyo, the Moon Sage can protect itself somewhat, or remove a threat on board which can politically let you leverage your opponents. Against creature-wide strats can draw you a full hand worth and its ult is very hard to fight against.
Teferi, Temporal Archmage combos with Chainveil if you replay it same turn and you NEED THIS ULT.Tezzeret the Seeker tutors for sol ring, nuff said.
Venser, the Sojourner resets your other planeswalker loyalties, I mean seriously flicker is always good. The ult acts as almost a win con.

Moi expensivo:Your mana base should be fetches and duals, enough said.Jace, the Mind SculptorKarn LiberatedUgin, the Spirit DragonLiliana of the VeilThe AbyssCaptain Sisay since all planeswalkers are retro-actively legendary.

TKDbeast on The Birds (1963)

Nice deck! I like the Storm Crow include there, and I love the movie The Birds.

I was wondering why you didn't include Magus of the Moat or Archetype of Imagination. They're really great for decks built around flying.

I'd also like to recommend trying on Coveted Peacock and Messenger Jays if you're into political play, or your playgroup doesn't have a grouphug deck.

In addition, I'd highly recommend getting some card draw and counterspells in there. Blue and White has a lot of control cards in it, so take advantage of those too. I'm not saying to go full-on Stax, but a little bit of removal and whatnot is always healthy for any deck.

Thanks for posting!

Force an air war! Teferi's Moat, Magus of the Moat, Blinding Angel, Somnophore, you name it. Green's lousy for fliers and winning via any way other than attacking.

dbpunk Magus of the Vineyard, Magus of the Library, Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Jar and Magus of the Future would like a word with you :)

That being said there was already Magus of the Moon, Magus of the Arena, Magus of the Scroll, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Abyss and Magus of the Mirror before they made Magus of the Will and Magus of the Wheel.

So the current magus breakdown is: White 3, Blue 3, Black 4, Red 4, Green 3. So You could be in luck with them evening out the total number of magus!

Je nachdem b du lieber uf Boardwipes gasch wri da no paar include, oder susch meh sac outlets als nume Ashnod's Altar mit steal effects. Ich glaub wipes sind meh reliable wil als stax deck dis goal isch dass niemer wirklich vil creatures het.
