Trying to make a Modern Flying deck.

Favorable Winds - Anthem that buff all my creatures, this is what this deck is all about.

Pride of the Clouds - Can get rather beefy quickly.

Serra Avenger - Great card for 2 mana, I don't mind waiting, I've got plenty to do until turn 4.

Wall of Denial - My Favorite wall, Hard to get past, especially when it's been buffed.

Plumeveil - Can surprise your opponent by casting this after they've declared attackers.

Vendilion Clique - used to get rid of that Hurricane or Consume the Meek they're holding.

Aven Mimeomancer - Can help buff up the weaker creatures you played earlier.

Teferi's Moat - Once this hits the board it's pretty much game unless your opponent has flying or can do something about it.

Godhead of Awe - Most opponents won't like this card very much. Also has synergy with Aven Mimeomancer, Pride of the Clouds and Esper Stormblade

Celestial Colonnade - This can lay a beating late game when you have the mana for it.

Moorland Haunt - Helps salvage your losses with more flyers.

Still looking to improve upon it as a whole. Please playtest and let me know what you think.

Awesome deck! Unless of course you get hit by Consume the Meek , Volcanic Fallout , Slagstorm , etc.

Consume the Meek seems very problematic.

The mass burn is less effective once I have a few anthems out though, still something to worry about.

I would likely side in Nevermore as an attempt to save myself if a deck ran those cards, is there any other cards you can think of that would prevent such a board wipe?

a few other problem cards are Hurricane and Firespout

Hm.. Maybe card:Faith's Shield can save your creatures from burn? Idk, most likely useless unless you have fateful hour. Probably the most important thing is how you play it. Hold most creatures until you get out your anthems if you know they have board wipe.

Wall of Denial is the best wall ever made :3

Yes. 3 mana: you cannot take combat damage.

Spellstutter Sprite may also be a good option. Great option to have early game, late game its still Suntail Hawk with flash.

CTM can be countered, it costs 5 mana with a Mana Leak you should be fine :)
