Nice deck, gives me some ideas for my Scion of the Ur-Dragon EDH. Door of Destinies would be a solid addition

I'll go ahead and play devil's advocate here and suggest that orzhov humans is a great budget deck archetype that can be both aggressive and controlling at the same time. It also easily supports Grand Abolisher , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , and even Starfield Mystic if you have a critical mass of Oblivion Ring s, Pacifism s, and such. Champion of the Parish is a key card of the deck, as is Thalia's Lieutenant . After that, it depends on what kind of gameplan you want to build around. My take on orzhov humans, Assassination Squadron makes use of tappers like Gideon's Lawkeeper and Minister of Impediments to combo and destroy creatures with assassins like Royal Assassin and Gideon Jura . With access to the legacy card pool and a bigger budget, King's Assassin and Deathbringer Liege could be on the table too. Tribal support like Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic , or Door of Destinies is nice, but it certainly isn't a requirement. (Fun fact: when I built this deck years ago, Lieutenant cost much more than the Door. Funny how things can change so drastically.)

Creating tokens tends to work well in this kind of deck because both human lords can buff and/or be buffed by them. Gather the Townsfolk and Thraben Doomsayer are the usual suspects, and I personally like Mentor of the Meek as a way to keep the hand topped off. If you want to go for a lifegain plan with Kambal at the helm, Vizkopa Guildmage is a budget Sanguine Bond on a stick. While certainly not budget, Serra Ascendant and Westvale Abbey  Flip can also work in such a build. Now that I think about it, a lot of soul sisters staples happen to be humans ( Auriok Champion , Martyr of Sands , Ranger of Eos , Soul's Attendant , Soul Warden , Speaker of the Heavens , etc.) Another idea is to focus on maximum destruction and exile. High Priest of Penance is a good way to make opponents think twice about their decisions in combat, and I've been having reasonable success with Mangara of Corondor as a sort of slow O-Ring that happens to trigger the lords. Humans are such a common tribe that there's no end to the number of directions you can steer them in if you really want to.

Here are some cards I think may benefit the deck:

Ancestral Knowledge can give you pretty much infinite scry 10

Banshee's Blade goes with the "deals combat damage" mechanic and can beef up your commander

Diluvian Primordial maybe just a sideboard, but could be effective against certain decks

Door of Destinies I saw a couple cards that made all creatures all types and thought this fit in with that

Forbidding Spirit great defensive flicker

Highcliff Felidar nice control flicker

Kinsbaile Courier counter engine

Mace of the Valiant will beef up commander as you flicker your creatures

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!

I dont know if you're still using the site or the deck but here are a few things that id recommend; Shared Animosity for extra power, id swap metallic mimic for Door of Destinies that way you can add in Cordial Vampire , id remove Taurean Mauler for Vampire Nocturnus , i dont see any real reanimation there id add something like Patriarch's Bidding , you don't have any in case of emergency board wipes Kindred Dominance is good because it doesn't effect you. Cathars' Crusade can hit like truck and its another way of bulking up your creatures. land wise you could run Cabal Coffers just for the extra black mana. Id remove Reforge the Soul just on the basis there is no reanimation in the deck

Door of Destinies really helpful in tribal decks, you obviously have a lot of draw power in this deck so why not run Sphinx's Tutelage as another potential win con, id also consider running something like Doubling Cube or Caged Sun maybe add Sleep and Clone Legion this combo alone has won me games and is really effective vs token decks but I really like it and would not like to play against it haha
