Pride of the Clouds Discussion

There WAS a Kangee(((I loved her very much (wizard bird in a dress with that awesome curved beak that's a lord, how cool is that?), but I had to remove her because of playability issues: most of the time she's a dead card in your hand, and if you somehow were able to gather those immense seven mana, a single kill spell and it's all for naught... I wish there weren't those stupid extra two mana in the kicker.
And I'm afraid Pride of the Clouds would indeed be too strong. Usually there won't be anything big enough to stop it and all the Imps could hope for is having a kill spell.

The more protection the better! Whenever I say swap, feel free to add. I am just assuming that you want a card with a similar effect and offering cards that I think are better.
While I am at it, I swapped Daxos of Meletis for Augury Adept in my commander deck, mostly because it basically has unblockable. If you are running Illusionist's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth you also want to consider Medomai the Ageless. With one of those, you could take two extra turns!! Come to think of it, you might want to consider changing your commander to one of those two cards. Huh.
If your detaining stuff use Lyev Skyknight its a really good blue white card for that.
I would recommend a Whispersilk Cloak for both hexproff and unblockable, both seem useful for your deck.
It does not look to me like you have enough fliers for Pride of the Clouds to be worth it. Unless you are planing on using Dovescape with it. If your looking for a flying heavy hitter I would use Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Baneslayer Angel, Iridescent Angel. If you are looking for something flying related try Stormtide Leviathan. If you are looking for something cheap for use in the early game try Deft Duelist or Judge's Familiar. Deft Duelist can be really nice against those pesky death touch thingers and Judge's Familiar can counter something later in the game.
On the off chance that you want to keep pride of the clouds and go for the Dovescape lockdown thing. Throw in a Guardian Seraph and a Godhead of Awe as well as a Lightmine Field. Voila, complete lock down.

Match 1 - Loss - Swans
Long games. Lost in 3. Tips activate Moorland Haunt at the end of opponent turn and Forecast Birds with Pride of the Clouds in long grindy matchups. Brought in counter spells and had a few of those wars. It was very winnable.
Match 2 - Loss - MG Stompy
Lost quick. Made crucial mistake of Path to Exile before he pumped the creatures. If I wait then I get more cards out of his hand for my one Path. Wasn't even close. Second game I kept a one land hand which was stupid. This decks has a higher mana curve than Oh the Humanity
Match 3 - Affinty
Lost even quicker. Really discouraged by that match. It was over before I could do anything. I'm not sure where I improve.

I like the deck but I think you need to try lowering your mana curve; Modern is a brutally fast format and it's easy to fall behind if you end up with a clunky hand that doesn't do much in the early turns. Flyers are never going to be the most aggressive creatures, however, so I'd also look at creatures that help disrupt and slow the opponents game-plan.
I'd definitely look to add Selfless Spirit, Mausoleum Wanderer and Pride of the Clouds as they're just powerful creatures that fit what you're trying to do. Aven Mindcensor, Hushwing Gryff, Vryn Wingmare are Lyev Skyknight could be good additions, depending on what decks you expect to face (maybe just in the sideboard though). Cloudfin Raptor and Loyal Pegasus might be a little too unreliable but I'd give them a test as aggressive 1-drops. Squadron Hawk isn't that aggressive or disruptive but it's card advantage in creature form, which is useful.
To make space I'd start by removing the Dragonlord Ojutai and Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, which while powerful don't really seem to fit the overall plan of the deck. Warden of Evos Isle might not be worth it anymore since I'm suggesting dropping the curve anyway and Nimble Obstructionist seems too situational to run 3 in the maindeck, although I've never played with it so maybe I'm underestimating it.

River Hoopoe is missing from the database (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=430832).
Also, you guys have got to lighten up on the java ads. My computer is tweaking out.
