Nice Decklist, if you add cards like Intruder Alarm , Village Bell-Ringer , Sky Hussar & Great Oak Guardian you're going infinite with enough mana dorks.

I always love that Sky Hussar for these decks. Worst case, you cast it.

But usually tapping down Familiars and Whatever weak Faerie you got. Buries in CA.

How about Squawk?

Don't know if it's your style but I really like Sky Hussar , for both card draw and untap trigger.

I also wanted to comment on the choice for Hour of Need. Essentially the card is a 4/4 flyer with flash for 3 mana and the additional cost of exiling a creature. Way back in the day Sea Drake was a thing in Legacy because of its aggressive cost. Since then they have printed a few other 4/4 flyers (IE, Illusory Angel) but this one is the best IMHO. Hour of Need accelerates Angy Bird's clock (which was something it originally struggled with in older builds) and allows for some combat trickery. The ability to play it on the opponent's turn means you're often forcing the opponent to lose one of their attacking creatures as well. Instant speed also means we can hold mana open to cast other cards based on the opponent's turn. And because Angry Birds generates so much card advantage and also a lot of expendable creatures, the cost of exiling a creature is typically pretty minimal--especially since Hour of Need is only a 2x of.

The fact that Hour of Need can actually generate 2x 4/4 flyers at instant speed in the late game and can double as really bad removal in really dire situations is just gravy. In my experience Hour of Need has been the card that has changed the tides of an otherwise losing game.

That said, I think a great argument can also be made for Spell Queller in the 3-drop slot. The great thing about Angry Birds are that we have several viable cards in the 2-drop and 3-drop slots to build the deck to the player's tastes and meta.

Since Sky Hussar is not typically a card I cast (but mainly make use of its forecast ability for card advantage, I felt that 3x was the right amount over 4x. Again, it could be a matter of taste but it really is a card I want to see in game but not in multiples. On the other hand, Judge's Familiar is a fantastic card that deserves to be a 4-of IMHO because of its excellent value. Having 4 of it and 3 Mother of Runes pretty much ensures we have a strong turn one play.

Are there any real reasons not to run Detention Sphere over Oblivion Ring?

Also I'm curious about the idea behind Hour of Need.

And lastly, what made you make the change from 3x Sky Hussar to 4x, and as a result going down to 3x Judge's Familiar?

I'm asking all this because I'm trying to build an angry birds list myself, and thus am looking for any additional advise I can get (your primer was an amazing help though :))

Nice deck. I'd say maybe drop one Jace, the Mind Sculptor for another land. The fact he costs two blue in his cmc seems difficult to hit at times with your current mana base. Another knight you could consider is Sky Hussar, it allows for extra card draw and a natural flying threat later in the game to pair with your double strike cards.
