I think a sphinx tribal deck would be cool. Splash a sub them for thopters. Have your cmdr be Medomai the Ageless .

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.
ooor make a pauper deck edh or a normal one... :P

Stuff like Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons or the swords like Sword of Fire and Ice or Sword of Feast and Famine help a lot in the lategame. Also Medomai the Ageless grants you 2 extra turns to swing, 4 with Finest Hour. My Rafiq list here is fast too and pretty solid in lategame.

@hkhssweiss: Well, I'll try to explain to the best of my ability... Cards w/ Impulsive Draw have you exile the top card of your library. You can play it that turn, but otherwise, it stays exiled. Chandra, Torch of Defiance's first +1 has something like this that doubles as burn if you don't cast it, & Outpost Siege's Khans Ability is the same aspect. For me it seems there is none of such a thing that allows one to cast for free, even in exile that turn; Oracle's Vault is slow as milk, thus there truly is no option for Free Impulsive Draw in . Ironic, considering even has potential for Extra Turns now, since Medomai the Ageless, & Chance for Glory are both related... I wonder what's taking WotC so long?

Love it, I'd definitely add more threat cards like Heroes' Podium and up the count of threatening legendary creatures like Evra, Halcyon Witness, Medomai the Ageless or Jazal Goldmane who are especially good with flash cause then people can't see them coming
Also definitely add Honor-Worn Shaku
Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Lena, Selfless Champion, Linvala, the Preserver, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (really nice with flash), Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Yosei, the Morning Star

It can work well, but it's definitely not undefeated. Having versed this plenty, the comp rating is about right.

I basically consider infinite turns a wincon. Every place I've been to play EDH will scoop when someone takes infinite turns or bounces all their lands to hand provided they can explain how they intend to win afterwards. Thanks to Nevermaker often I can't mill out either so if I had lock I'm guaranteed to win. Not to mention if I go infinite/have Cathars' Crusade with a token producer out, e.g. Knight-Captain of Eos, that's a more traditional wincon right there.
I will admit Medomai the Ageless is a little off theme. He's in the deck because of his combo potential with Identity Thief. Identity Thief can also reuse etbs of Cloudblazer and suchlike and as for medomai the deck is designed to get a creature out, protect it then make sure it gets in for combat damage. Still I'll probably play them until I get the combo off one time and them swap them out straight after tbh.

i wrote out a big thing about Wormfang Manta before i relized that you dont stack multiple turns after each other, you just do one at a time. I will say something like Flickerwisp, Restoration Angel, Felidar Guardian, might be a better toolbox include instead of Medomai the Ageless because of how many cards in your deck do create extra turns. What is your main win condition? just beating face long enough with extra turns? i use Altar of the Brood as my main wincon, and it doesnt seem like you have a non-combat way to win if they can prevent you from attacking.
