Tinnuki Thank you! I definitely will! Love seeing what others do with their decks with commanders I also use.
I totally forgot about Stolen by the Fae , have a few copies of it too. I think I might have had it in this deck way back when I first built it but took it out because the deck was running too slow. A lot of the tap lands have been replaced so I think it's time it can go back in again. Coat of Arms is a card I'm currently borrowing from my partner for my Bat Tribal deck (which badly needs it more lol), but eventually I will get a copy of that for both Bats and Faeries. :)
Kindred Dominance and Kindred Discovery would be amazing additions, hopefully they get some reprints soon! Pretty much any time lately I've been spending more on a card (anything $10-20+) I've been trying to get various desired reserve list cards knocked off the list first (which I am really glad I did for Liege of the Hollows and Deranged Hermit for a different deck because those spiked like mad recently).
Faerie Tauntings could come out to be honest, I had it in here since it was a cheap enchantment that would trigger Alela's ability and because it was on theme. Unless Vedalken Orrery is out, it really doesn't do much.
Thanks again for so many suggestions! It's quite helpful to have another pair of eyes for a fresh perspective, much appreciated!

Cool Faerie tribal! I have a faerie-based Alela deck as well, although mine is much more of an enchantress deck than yours is. Feel free to check it out!
Couple suggestions: I think you'd enjoy Stolen by the Fae for some easy tokens, and some more tribal glue like Coat of Arms (or perhaps Kindred Dominance or Kindred Discovery if your budget will allow it) would be nasty in a deck like this.
One question though, as cool of a card Faerie Tauntings is, I feel like you don't have enough instants or flash cards to truly take advantage of it. Am I just not seeing a secret synergy somewhere?

Boki92 thanks for the comment! The other "budget" deck that I have listed is mainly the cards that used to be in this one.
1) I'd probably start with this deck and downgrade individual cards that you aren't looking to purchase yet. There are budget versions of most cards on this list. There are loads of cheap dragons, that are still good but a little higher CMC, so I'd replace those first. Then look at what other replacement effects you can have. If you sort my list by "Custom" you should see the categories I've placed them in. To give you an idea of my reasoning, in the removal category I upgraded Sarkhan's Unsealing to Terror of the Peaks just because it's a dragon too so there is more synergy, but it still sits in "Removal"
2) IMHO colour fixing/ramp should be kept but there are budget options. I saw a huge improvement after swapping the usual basic land ramp package for Nature's Lore , Three Visits and Skyshroud Claim because they fetch the Triomes (get Ketria Triome if you are only getting 1) but there are some really good budget options for dual lands with the Forest type, like the Battle Lands and Cycling Duals here: https://www.mtglands.com/subtypes-forest.html. Also The World Tree is excellent so try and keep that.
The core of the deck is really built around Cheap Dragons so, although expensive, cards like Morophon, the Boundless , Urza's Incubator and Herald's Horn are key. The cards in the "Support" category are also pretty budget friendly and you could swap out Kindred Discovery for Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner .
Let me know if you have any questions and if you would like me to checkout your decklist once you add one then just let me know!
Have fun :)

True, Kindred Discovery will kill me. Unless I have some prior set up. Say I had Impact Tremors out before. Usually my opponents will die before I deck out. Or if I had enough mana, I could Cryptic Command one of my pieces off the board. Even safer if I have a sac outlet, like the Ashnod's Altar .

Thanks! I'm happy you like it. I've actually been testing this deck with Horde of Notions for a while now and I think that I will make the switch for a few reasons.
Early game hate. People just dislike Kenrith decks in general, you typically become an early game target. Less people are worried about Horde and I tend to fly under the radar a bit more.
Haste and Vigilance, it's nice being able to swing hard with Horde of Notions immediately on cast, the vigilance is a major bonus because this deck does struggle with blocking since most the bodies in the deck kill themselves.
I've also in my testing decided to take out Phase Dolphin because I simply don't use it enough, if it had haste it would be significantly better. I am going to replace Phase Dolphin with Shalai, Voice of Plenty so that I can protect the creatures better, I've had opponents destroy Suicide Squad creatures mid combat which is always the worst. My only downside to doing this is that Shalai is not 3cmc or less so it's one less card to work with all of my synergies with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , Aluren , Collected Company , and Sevinne's Reclamation .
