Creature — Bird Wizard
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may put a feather counter on target creature. If you do, that creature is 3/1 and has flying for as long as it has a feather counter on it.

Hi Nova! Thanks for the comment!
Yes, we all had a budget restriction of $45. You can see the budget version of the deck here. The deck plays really well. In my experience the fogs are imperative for this deck, especially when you get into the 1v1. With Kros you spend all game buffing your opponents creatures and when it gets down to just two players you need to be able to buy time to proliferate the infect counters with something like Contagion Clasp.
As for Paradox Haze I have a very nice hand painted alter of the card, I haven't had a home for it in a while since I took apart another deck so I just have to put it in here. Here's a link to the alternate art if you wanna check it out. There are a lot of cards in the build though that trigger on upkeep Orzhov Advokist, Aven Mimeomancer, Evolutionary Escalation, Sheltering Ancient, Sporogenesis, Crescendo of War, Kumena's Awakening, Phyrexian Swarmlord, and of course the commander Kros, Defense Contractor so I think it will be really strong.
I'm excited to see how Kros can be improved with upcoming sets and more community research.

Looks pretty cool, I like this!
Some more birds or tribal cards to consider are these:

Unless you're playing with some funky homebrew rules, your commander does have to be a legendary creature. For bird tribal, Kangee, Aerie Keeper or Kangee, Sky Warden would be the most obvious choices. Also, Screaming Seahawk does not get around the singleton restriction in the same way something like Relentless Rats does. Even if it did, I still don't think it would be worth running over the much faster Squadron Hawk . More relevant inclusions might be Watcher of the Spheres , Warden of Evos Isle , Soulcatchers' Aerie , Migratory Route , Wingmate Roc , Aven Mimeomancer , Emeria Angel , Favorable Winds , Kangee's Lieutenant , Judge's Familiar , Steel-Plume Marshal , Battle Screech , Skycat Sovereign , Pride of the Clouds , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Jotun Owl Keeper , Windreader Sphinx , Aven Gagglemaster , Thunderclap Wyvern , Jubilant Skybonder , Rally of Wings , Eyes in the Skies , Alrund's Epiphany , Aerial Assault , Rise of Eagles , Door of Destinies , Herald's Horn , Dovescape , Gravitational Shift , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Serra the Benevolent , or Seaside Haven .
Looks like my comment is now a little redundant here, but hope the seconded advice still helps. Good luck!

At the moment, it looks like you basically have two different decks mashed into one. If you cut your 120 cards into two decks of 60, you'll essentially have double the options to play while improving the power level of both. The two main strategies I'm seeing here are Naya ramp/midrange and some sort of bird/flying tribal. I'll give some of my budget suggestions for both archetypes.
For Naya ramp, you definitely want to focus on the mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Ilysian Caryatid, and Knotvine Mystic before using the extra mana to play your threats like Godsire, Titanic Ultimatum, and Atarka, World Render. Midrange will forego some of the lower and upper ends of the curve to play efficient midgame creatures like Retaliator Griffin, Managorger Hydra, and Llanowar Visionary. Some other ramp options include Voyaging Satyr, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rampant Growth, Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl. Some other bombs include Hornet Queen, Vigor, Archetype of Endurance, Terastodon, Armada Wurm, Gruul Ragebeast, Rakeclaw Gargantuan, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Woodfall Primus, and Warstorm Surge. Some midrange threats are Wild Nacatl, Woolly Thoctar, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Burning-Tree Emissary, and Bloodbraid Elf.
For birds, I'd definitely recommend swapping red out for blue. This lets you play flying buffs like Empyrean Eagle, Watcher of the Spheres, Skycat Sovereign, Jubilant Skybonder, Favorable Winds, Flurry of Wings, and Stolen by the Fae. Some options that stay in white are Sephara, Sky's Blade, Emeria Angel, Midnight Haunting, and Battle Screech. Some additional bird stuff could be Aven Mimeomancer, Pride of the Clouds, Wingmate Roc, Kangee, Aerie Keeper, Call, and Murmuring Mystic. These types of decks generally go as wide as possible, buff the team with anthem effects, and swing in the air for the win.
Cards I see in this deck that don't fit in either archetype are Ajani's Pridemate, Pyroceratops, End Hostilities, Planar Outburst, Star of Extinction, Giant Growth, Moonhold, Double Vision, Furor of the Bitten, and Darksteel Pendant. At least, those are the first that spring to mind as targets to replace first. Anyway, let me know if you have any questions about my suggestions and I wish you good luck with your build!

Yo DanTheBear, have you ever consider using these cards?
- Aven Mimeomancer
- Celestial Gatekeeper
- Crookclaw Elder
- Commander Eesha
- Metallic Mimic
- Unsettled Mariner
- Dovin's Veto
- Vanquisher's Banner
- Herald's Horn
- Contagion Clasp
- Contagion Engine
- Sword of Truth and Justice
- Mystic Remora
- Rhystic Study
- Smothering Tithe
- Kindred Discovery
- Coastal Piracy
- Bident of Thassa
Aside from that direct straight upgrades for the rocks will definitely help Kangee out, as he is pretty mana hungry. So the fast acceleration rocks like Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Progress, Azorius Signet, Arcane Signet, and Coalition Relic really helps to bring him out faster with the feather counters. Hope that helps!

I also run a Derevi Birds tribal deck, if you want to have a look at it you might be able to find some cards you like. My Deck: Bantish Birds That being said, there are a few cards that work well that I can definitely recommend. Dovin, Grand Arbiter is great for deck filtering and just getting the cards you need when you need them. Serra the Benevolent buffs our birds and her ultimate is easy to get to and powerful as well. Another thing to mention, is that while Airborne Aid is card draw based off of birds, there are better ways to achieve that same effect, such as Bident of Thassa , Coastal Piracy and Edric, Spymaster of Trest . As if you're aggressive and attack with your birds every turn, you get to draw a card for each bird that does damage, and you can do the same as every turn as long as the effect is on the field. Keeper of the Nine Gales is a good bird that likes having other birds on the field for a repeatable bounce effect. If you're going to run Kangee, I'd suggest also running Aven Mimeomancer , which can give Kangee extra feather counters and Thrummingbird , which can proliferate the counters on Kangee. Also, not related to birds, but I've found that Lux Cannon works really well with Derevi's tap/untap abilities. There's plenty more to be said, but that might get really lengthy. I hope you enjoy playing your deck! I've had a lot of fun with mine.

hkhssweiss and IAmTheWraith - sorry for the delay in responding, I was extremely busy with work so did not have the time I generally like to put into responding to deck suggestions.
IAmTheWraith - I like that suggestion and will be playtesting around with it more. My one concern is Clock of Omens does not play entirely nicely with Static Orb , but I will need more playtesting to determine how big of an issue that is.
hkhssweiss - I added Jhoira's Familiar and artificer's assistant (though I cut Artificer's Assistant to make room for playtesting Clock of Omens ). I had both Aven Mimeomancer and Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle in here originally, but found they under-performed.
Aven Mimeomancer was fun and on-theme, but there were not enough creatures to really capitalize on this benefit, and the additional +1/+1 to each bird on the upkeep if used alongside the commander was disapointing.
I found Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle came down a bit too late to make much of a difference. There were other cards I wanted to play with my four mana, and by the time I wanted to cast Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , my hand was devoid of historic spells, so it was only when I topdecked an artifact that the ability became relevant.
Thanks both of you for the suggestions!
