It might be a bit too cute, but something to consider would be Doran, the Siege Tower, which gives a minor boost to Birds of Paradise, Restoration Angel and Siege Rhino, a massive boost to Nyx-Fleece Ram and is effectively a 5/5 for 3 itself.

The listed subtypes for almost the entire Jackal tribe seems to be incorrect. I tried to fix it but, unless I'm being an idiot and misunderstanding the interface, it isn't possible because the only Jackal related option in the drop-down menu is "Zombie Jackal".
Battlefield Scavenger, Bitterblade Warrior, Bitterbow Sharpshooters, Champion of Rhonas, Dauthi Jackal, Defiant Khenra, Earthshaker Khenra, Flameblade Adept, Hurr Jackal, Jackal Familiar, Jackal Pup, Khenra Charioteer, Khenra Eternal, Khenra Scrapper, Nimble-Blade Khenra, Resilient Khenra, Trueheart Twins, Wildfire Eternal.

Thanks for the suggestion, Boomstick022. Mirran Crusader is a powerful card that would fit the deck and I already own some, so the price isn't an issue, but I'm pretty wary of running too many 3-drops in a deck that wants to destroy all of the lands and I'm not sure that it's a better fit than either Knight Exemplar or Always Watching . What would you remove to include it?

No; no-one gets priority during the untap step, so you can't cast spells at that point. The earliest time you could cast Glorious End is during the upkeep step, after all triggered abilities (if any) have been put onto the stack.

I would ditch Thunderous Wrath; it's a card that's easy to overestimate because there are times when miracling it at the perfect moment will win you the game but there are vastly more situations where it will be the worst card to draw in the deck. It's a brick in your opening hand and in the first couple of turns of the game it'll generally be better to spend your mana on deploying creatures and miracling it will more or less force you to cast it instead; again, it just makes your deck less consistent.
Also, regardless of what direction you take the deck, I don't think Nantuko Shade is a good fit. With only 18 lands, there are going to be a lot of games in which you can't afford to make use of its ability and it's just going to be a 2/1 for 2.

All of them, basically. They may seem fine and there will be a decent amount of games where they will be fine but then there will be times when the lands in your opening hand are something like Foreboding Ruins and Dragonskull Summit and it's going to be awful; they just hurt the overall consistency of the deck. If you're committed to wanting to play , which I can appreciate, then the lands you want to look at are Blackcleave Cliffs, Blood Crypt, Bloodstained Mire, Sulfurous Springs and maybe 1 Graven Cairns that can all always come into play untapped in the early turns when you really need the mana, but they're expensive cards which is why I suggested going mono-colour.

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.

I think the biggest way to improve this deck right now would be to make it either mono-red or mono-black. Having lands that enter the battlefield tapped is a serious problem for an aggro deck and not being able to cast your spells on curve because you've got the wrong combination of red and black is going to slow the deck down a lot too.
Red is the easiest to make a good creature aggro deck with, so I'm going to recommend cards for that: Goblin Bushwhacker, Reckless Bushwhacker, Rakdos Cackler, Falkenrath Gorger, Burning-Tree Emissary, Lightning Mauler, Firedrinker Satyr, Foundry Street Denizen. Basically, I think that you have to have a really good reason to include a card that costs more than 2 mana both so you can run a low land count and not get mana screwed and so you can deploy as many threats as possible as quickly as possible to overwhelm your opponent and none of your expensive cards at the moment justify their inclusion.

Does anyone know if Wizards has announced how the new cards are going to be released on MTGO?

Your link goes to a 404; is the deck set to private?

No, once a card is on the stack, it's already been cast, so Comply won't have any affect on it:
"601.2. To cast a spell is to take it from where it is (usually the hand), put it on the stack, and pay its costs, so that it will eventually resolve and have its effect."
