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!

Have you looked at populate cards? One you "wake" one avatar you can make another.

Ghired's Belligerence looks really good, Eyes in the Skies , Rootborn Defenses , and Wake the Reflections look passable, but I suspect not good enough.

I like the focus on death and leaving the battlefield triggers to give you more triggers on opponents turns, and allowing you build-up until getting Thalisse out. A couple recommendations for more instant-speed token creation: Vile Rebirth , Eyes in the Skies (if you end up with more larger tokens like zombies), and Raise the Alarm .

Some other potential includes: Maalfeld Twins , Grixis Slavedriver , Martyr of Dusk

Is Rend Flesh in there for flavor? Cause there's better situational removal like Cast Down .

I like weenie decks, so +1 for that alone.

Also cheers on correctly using Populate, I can't tell you how many times I've had to tell people to re-read that one (thinking it will clone their non-token creatures) haha...

SOME THOUGHTS (Nothing Expensive to Purchase):

You might take a look at Funeral Pyre and Beckon Apparition for some even lower mana-cost ways to create those 1/1 fliers early on.

You should also definitely make some room in your Enchantments to run 4x Intangible Virtue -- that's bread & butter for any token deck in my opinion.

Also, while I realize you have no black mana, but Vault Skirge can be played in any color deck, and that'd be a 1-mana way to get a 1/1 Lifelink Flier

Finally: Eyes in the Skies could be replaced by something more equal to Raise the Alarm ...since you're only using Populate to create a 1/1, you can just read Populate in this build as "create an additional 1/1 of something". Therefore, 4 mana for 2 1/1's isn't that great. You could replace these with Midnight Haunting , which will save you 1 mana and is itself only one more mana than Raise the Alarm and is still at Instant Speed.

usaDiabetic Hahaha honestly I really appreciate your interest in this deck so thank you very much and I really appreciate all the suggestions. That said Here's my opinionn on all options,Retreat to Emeria-- It's got some potential, def a maybeboard.

Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip-- Definitely would benefit from the token, but it would become a target the moment It's flipped. One of the main strategies I was thinking of when building this deck is trying to sit below the radar. I want my opponents to have to struggle to pick a target on my board until they withdraw they're moves or aim removal elsewhere in order to maintain value. In HIMYM, Ted dates so many girls in the series, there are only minor moments that hint at him finding the right one. In this deck, we don't want our opponent to know who our winner is until the last season. In order to do that we have to give him an abundance of information to speculate. For this reason, I've also avoided the use of cards like Scytheclaw and Batterskull, because the moment they become attached, we start giving our opponent a reason to look at our board. If we want our opponent to man up and target us we want to make him/her pull the trigger on a full boardwipe and hopefully let it hit the whole board. I'm also using this reason to exclude the following: Bonehoard, Cathedral of War, Duelist's Heritage, and to a lesser extent Citadel Siege (to get boardwide use is too slow).

Sublime Archangel is a lot better than the cathedral, but I doubt I'll get more than 1 turn out of it, plus we run into a similar issue of putting a lot of energy into a 1 turn move.

I like the idea of Pull from Eternity for sure

Rootborn Defenses is a strong possibility but Eyes in the Skies is too slow.

Archangel of Tithes would be a great pillowfort addition.

Given the space in the deck, I would rather choose Crested Sunmare over Wingmate Roc.

I agree with Day of the Dragons being too harmful since none of my tokens will come back. Unless I'm willing to trade my tokens for essentially other tokens I'm gonna count this one out.

I'm gonna put some thought into Soul Separator it has some weird potential.

Keeper of Keys is not bad but I have to make it all the way around the table before he becomes effective and that's a lot of turns for people to notice that I'm about to blow my load. Venser, the Sojourner is better imo but I just wonder if Im going to get more than 1 turn out of him.

Hour of Eternity is pretty good honestly, and so is Cathars' Crusade so I think they'll make their way in.

Saheeli's Artistry is not bad, it's a pretty high cost but if the artifacts are there then it might be worth it to toss one in for the match. I don't see enough value out of the cards in this deck alone to run it for copying my own stuff.

Back from the Brink will be more counterproductive than eternalize, but it may have potential for others. If I could create a Pull from Eternity and Isochron Scepter setup then there could be some huge value out of Back from the Brink

Murder Investigation depends on if I can fins more value vs the others in the deck since it's not a bad choice.

Lastly, I actually already looked at Foundry of the Consuls and felt like it just cost to much to take up another land spot.
