What's your budget, and which cards specifically do you want to keep? Is there a particular theme you're going for? Are you just playing this casually or do you intend to take it to modern FNMs?

Some quick generic suggestions:

  • Winged Words is better than Divination for your deck
  • Most of your instants are horrifically overcosted and/or narrow (e.g. is your opponent always going to present a target for Demystify ?). And with only 1 copy of each, it's unlikely you'll have the one you need on hand at any given point.
  • 34 lands is way too many for pretty much any 60-card deck. Realistically you could probably go down to 24 ish after some changes. On the same note, run 60 cards and no more, as it maximizes your chances of drawing the cards you want.
  • Milling opponents is pretty useless unless your deck is focused on winning via milling them out. Most decks don't know what the top of their deck is on any regular basis, so what you mill from them is unlikely to change the value of their next draw, and if you're playing against a graveyard abuse deck like dredge, mill just helps their gameplan.

You have enough flyers in the deck to swap in Winged Words for Divination . Its the same spell with conditional upside that you should easily be able to meet.

Soul Warden would be a huge upgrade to Soulmender

Austere Command is another boardwipe that could work in this deck as you could pick the modes you need to dodge what you have on board.

Winged Words over chart a course>? you only need one flyer on the board to make it better value which will probably always be the case.

Winged Words seems great for this deck. I like Faerie Seer or Spectral Sailor much better than Rustwing Falcon but I'm guessing it's kind of hard for this deck to have a turn one blue mana ready, but I personally would try to make it work. Love the deck +1 from me!

Your deck seems like it will probably have some mana problems. I'd add around 4 lands, and some ramp like Wayfarer's Bauble , Traveler's Amulet , and Commander's Sphere .

Your deck is also kinda... unfocused. I wouldn't run Ajani's Welcome or Ajani's Pridemate outside of a lifegain deck. Same for Auramancer , Ajani's Chosen , Sigil of the Empty Throne or Hall of Heliod's Generosity and enchantment decks.

If you want your deck to be more flying focused, i'd add some of the following cards: Windreader Sphinx , Prognostic Sphinx , Inspired Sphinx , Azor, the Lawbringer , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Winged Words , Empyrean Eagle , Warden of Evos Isle , Thunderclap Wyvern , Archon of Redemption , and/or Gravitational Shift
