Hey, for a first Commander deck very nice budget version of Tuvasa.
Robe of Stars is from new Aura of Courage Commander precon and it's powerful repeatable protection for Tuvasa and all auras that are attached to her. Mantle of the Ancients is also in that precon and it's a way to reanimate all your auras while also pumping Tuvasa. Open the Armory is a budget aura tutor or it can could get Robe. Moon-Blessed Cleric is a budget enchantment tutor from Adventures of Forgotten Realms.
- Robe of Stars --> Starfield of Nyx
- Mantle of the Ancients --> Creeping Renaissance
- Open the Armory --> Martial Law
- Moon-Blessed Cleric --> Plea for Guidance
Setessan Champion is an upgrade for an enchantress. Alpha Authority can protect Tuvasa from opponents targeting with hexproof, but still lets you target her to keep enchanting her and it also gives menace which combined with how big Tuvasa can get is good evasion for her. Favor of the Overbeing gives flying evasion and vigilance letting Tuvasa be an attacker as well as a blocker. Seal of Primordium is an upgrade for Reclamation Sage since it's an enchantment that you can sac right away or at instant speed later.
- Setessan Champion --> Yavimaya Enchantress
- Alpha Authority --> Alseid of Life's Bounty
- Favor of the Overbeing --> Hypnotic Siren
- Seal of Primordium --> Reclamation Sage
Consider some budget manabase improvements? The manabase looks neglected compared to the rest of your deck. 26 basic lands is a lot for three colors and except for Command Tower all the other dual lands here ETB tapped. Some lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands, Tranquil Expanse, Woodland Stream and Meandering River:
- Exotic Orchard
- Bant Panorama
- Path of Ancestry
- Yavimaya Coast
- Prairie Stream
- Canopy Vista
- Port Town
- Fortified Village
- Vineglimmer Snarl
The Tango lands and Reveal lands have interaction with basic lands to ETB untapped. Could also consider cutting a few lands in place of some more ramp/color fixing that has interaction with Tuvasa. Wild Growth, Abundant Growth and Wolfwillow Haven.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good budget upgrade of the precon.
You're best line of play here is Ranar + Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel which equals infinite 1/1 Spirits. Guardian and Restoration infinite blink each other and each time one of them blinks it's one instance of exile to trigger Ranar. Because Restoration has flash then you can do this combo at instant speed on your last opponent's turn to create infinite Spirits to then attack with them on your next turn as a win condition.
Flickerwisp also combos with Restoration Angel and this combo is different since it's delayed. At each player's end step Ranar + Flickerwisp + Restoration creates two Spirits. With Flickerwisp in your control blink it with Restoration; Flickerwisp ETB and blinks Restoration. Restoration doesn't return to the battlefield from exile until the next player's end step. At the end step Restoration ETB to blink Flickerwisp, Flickerwisp ETB to blink Restoration and repeat on the next player's end step. At each end step you get two separate exiles for two triggers of Ranar.
Reconnaissance Mission is good repeatable draw with 1/1 flying Spirits since each one that does combat damage to an opponent you draw a card. Mentor of the Meek can trigger to draw for one mana each time a 1/1 Spirit or 2/2 Spirit is created.
Palace Jailer is powerful repeatable opponent creature exile with blink especially with Soulherder . When Jailer ETB you become the monarch which is at your end step you draw a card. Only one player can be the monarch at one time and how a player becomes the monarch is they do combat damage to the player who's the monarch or they play a card that makes them the monarch.
What makes Jailer powerful with blink is that creatures he exiles don't return to their owners unless you lose the monarch to an opponent. When Jailer leaves the battlefield from being blinked all the creatures he has exiled stay exiled. Then when Jailer ETB you become the monarch which makes it difficult to lose the monarch. 1/1 Spirits are also good flying blockers to help you to keep the monarch as well as Ghostly Prison and other cards like it make it more difficult for an opponent to attack you to do combat damage to you.
Nimbus Maze , Port Town , Prairie Stream , Skycloud Expanse , Temple of Enlightenment , Irrigated Farmland , Ash Barrens are some budget land upgrades that could replace some basic lands, Azorius Guildgate and Meandering River .
Good luck with your deck.

Alright, so- here's some tips for building now that you have a fitting commander. Definitely focus on repeatable life-gain more than sorceries or instants. Riot Control though is an good card against aggressive, creature-based decks going for the kill.
Blue/White lifegain is a little harder to build, as Blue rarely has life-based synergy. But its doable, especially due to white. The Soul Sisters ( Soul Warden , Soul's Attendant , and Suture Priest gain you life as you get more creatures. This synergies well with any tokens you make.
Dual lands are great for getting the right colors out. You don't necessarily need the expensive ones to build a fun deck. Meandering River , Azorius Chancery , Tranquil Cove , Irrigated Farmland , Boreal Shelf , and Coastal Tower are all cheap dual lands. Cheap means entering tapped though, just to warn you. But it can be better than basic lands at times due to either color of mana as needed. And oh, speaking of mana- Azorius Signet , Azorius Locket , Azorius Keyrune , and Azorius Cluestone are great artifacts for ramping up to bigger spells. White and Blue lack a lot of ramp, so its something to think about.

Love this! Having flying on every creature adds so much value to the deck, and the counters really play off each other nicely. I swapped Cartouche of Knowledge and Recumbent Bliss with Ordeal of Thassa and Pacifism , as well as adding in Meandering River s.
Great build, love the $5 decks!

Heya Fans, and welcome back to our show. After some practice with our potential new hires we come to our first look at what fresh acts we can bring to the audiences.
After much hiring and firing, then rehiring again, and many hours of choreography, I am happy to report we have had decent results. And that I'm convinced there could be physical changes made. If you disagree or think of something better, please share your thoughts in the comments.
These changes aren't so deck altering as some of the others I am still considering, but I'm still not 100% on them. Need some outside input.
Hanna, Ship's Navigator - ???: Closest things I could find that flies is Razor Hippogriff , Sanctum Gargoyle , and Griffin Dreamfinder but that only covers half. Or is this ability really necessary, can we work around our toys being removed and use this spot to fit something new?.
Azorius Keyrune & Ojutai Monument : for lack of a better word they seem 'cute' now. They seemed useful at first because they turned into flying creatures that shared the benefit other flyers do. Better rocks? Keep? Replacements could include Fellwar Stone , Basalt Monolith could be blinked with Brago... unsure what else is good and not overly expensive.
Favorable Winds : Is it really necessary, amid the other +'s it seems the least shiny, even though it's foiled.
Stay tuned for more to come! We're always trying to keep fresh acts, and as accidents happen replacement performers will hopefully be swift coming. Don't forget the suggestion and vote box on your way out. See you next time at The Circus!

DiverDown Did some small digging on the issue, and I have found at least one common denominator.
The following cards from Magic Game Night - (GNT) have incorrect legality:
And in Global Series: Jiang Yanggu & Mu Yanling - (GS1), only the cards listed below works:
- Brilliant Plan
- Cloak of Mists
- Giant Spider
- Meandering River
- Timber Gorge
- Welkin Tern
This shows that only NEW entries in the database are affected by this bug, cards that existed before which only got an updated image in the sets didn't get affected.
I have tried to edit cards(using the "fix card" function) but that does not yield any result at all, everything looks okay in the forms when submitting the cards.
I also tried submitting an entry of an existing card in another set/expansion to see if it changed something, but it didn't.
So the entries in the database are probably corrupted, manual deletion and readding is maybe a way to go for individual cards. But what causes the bug I have no idea of.
To investigate this issue further it would be good if I have more cards to look at, so tag them here if you find any.
Arvail : I hope not, except for this bug I think it works somewhat good.

Just a momentary thought: Budget upgrades could include the land upgrades?
Those seem like excellent includes for once you've purchased the other ones and you're looking to finish the job.
Thanks for the upgrades guide, I've made a lot of use of it, adding some into the mainboard, and reserving a few that will be bought along with the 100 in the list, as a 15 card 'sideboard' of sorts, used to add in cards to power up the deck depending on what strengths I'm playing against.
3 changes I made though:
-Azami, Lady of Scrolls Solemn Simulacrum (I feel like Simulacrum does what Azami wants to do with better consistency, you only really want to be paying UUU for a creature that is its own excellent engine, such as Arcanis. Azami needs way more wizards in the list to really get pumping, and unlike a Simulacrum, players will immediately respond to an Azami, they know it will generate game-winning card advantage, vs flashing in a chump block simulacrum for pure value-town, much faster than Azami's slow roller. Also, colour-less mana fixing. God bless).
I kept Hushwing Gryff when I added Kira to mainboard, and instead dropped Aven Mindcensor for Kira, Great Glass-Spinner. The reason behind this being my playgroup has a krenko, as well as a bunch of other tribals. Tribal ETB's are powerful, I can't say no to keeping a hushwing in my back pocket. If I verse someone I know will play johnny combo, and search their library, I'll change between Censor and Hushwing accordingly.
My version of your list (which I just ordered as a nice christmas present to myself!):
+1 from me!
