On Serra's Wings Discussion

From my experience playing with Tethered Griffin, he's gonna need some more help to get going reliably.
I would cut the Crown/Scepter (I feel they're a little clunky as a whole, especially if we're not playing the set, and a bit wordy/confusing) and add in some more enchantment support. I'm going to try to keep the complexity lower-ish, but you can see the direction I'm going.
A final option could be checking out some fun auras with Transcendent Envoy + On Serra's Wings , and Shielded by Faith . ( Eland Umbra , Benevolent Blessing , and Spirit Mantle could definitely get there down the line, but I feel they're a bit more complex mechanically for a beginner than a lot of the other mechanics showcased.)
Topping the curve with a Griffin Dreamfinder or two might be a fun way to pay off the heavier enchantment load and emphasize the griffin/enchantment link.

So, take into account what kind of deck you want to play. Aggro? Cut the board wipes. Control? Add more removal, take most of your creatures out. I'm going to work ona n aggro gameplan since that looks like whre your deck is leaning towards.
Cut: Tragic Poet
Archon of Emeria (You are an aggro deck and want to be able to cast more than one creature in the same turn)
Djeru, With Eyes Open (you run no planeswalkers, also a bad card)
Smite the Monstrous All your sorcerys
Novice Knight you run no equipment
Now this might seem like a lot, but I will give you some suggestions for cards that will help further your gameplan
Creatures: currently you are running some really good cards as one ofs and bad cards with more copies, such as; Dauntless Bodyguard , Leonin Vanguard , Hunted Witness , Luminarch Aspirant Venerated Loxodon which is a great finisher, and Speaker of the Heavens .
Removal: If you want to go with some of the best white removal ever printed that is modern legal, but a little expensive, go with Path to Exile . If not Path to Exile would be much better than Hieromancer's Cage , Conclave Tribunal is pretty good, but I wouldn't run more than 5 removal spells since you want to be going wide with your creatures and a hand ful of removal will just stall the game and you will lose in the end. You want to end the game fast while maintaining a high life score.

I agree with epajula, artifact based ramp is a pretty good way to go. Here are a few suggestions on cards to cut for ramp.
Personal Sanctuary - I don't see a lot of ways that you are damaging yourself on your turn so this piece doesn't seem needed.
Good luck with this unique style deck. I like the idea and want to see how it plays when you are done.

I feel your pain on the budget, I've spent almost 900$ on my main commander deck, and 400 on 2 other ones, so I'm pretty budget strapped. So I'll take a deeper look and see what budget options you could consider.
Wear / Tear is better than disenchant. Ring of Valkas is a decent cheap equipment that grants haste, though I'd consider Basilisk Collar because it's never going to be more affordable, and Trailblazer's Boots because it's essentially unblockable. Talisman of Conviction is a very good Mana rock, as well as Thought Vessel because of no maximum hand size. Zirda, the Dawnwaker is amazing with equipment. Axgard Armory and Inventors' Fair are good tutor lands, and due to your Commander's ability I'd definitely run Reliquary Tower . You're also lacking in the removal category: Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , Generous Gift , and Chaos Warp are solid inclusions that will stop your opponents from getting too far ahead.
Now for cuts I'd honestly do away with the worldslayer package because if you can't give your commander indestructible you're going to set yourself back just as far add everyone else. Scytheclaw is just too expensive for what you get, if you have to have that effect i would keep just Quietus Spike but in general I'd probably just look in a different direction and take both of them out. Grappling Hook is also overcosted, this is where I'd slot in Embercleave . I know you think embercleave is a bit costy, but you don't pay the equip cost when you cast it and you can do so as a combat trick. I'd likely turn away from Burnished Hart for Wayfarer's Bauble , you're only getting half the ramp but at half the investment. You might consider dropping Hyena Umbra because it's not really doing enough and On Serra's Wings because it's a 4 cost aura. Lastly I'd honestly consider cutting the godo helm because it's extremely unreliable and frankly wouldn't be the way i would go about winning. If the kaldra artifacts weren't so expensive I'd probably consider not running those too, but i get why if you're on a budget and already have them I'd definitely still run them. Oh and you should look at bolstering your creature numbers a little in case your commander gets killed too many times.
Anyways, that's my deep analysis for this deck, it's definitely focused on doing the thing, it's cmc is 2.63 which is decent but it means you should have more ramp/mana rocks at the 2 cost range. You're 75% white but has a land base that is almost 50/50 so you should think about adjusting it and when budget allows get some lands that tap for both colors. Overall wyleth is a Commander i would love to build around.

Seeing that a good deal of your creature base is heavily leaning on Legendary humans(like my Jirina deck I posted here yesterday), you might want to take advantage of that and swap either Citywide Bust or Cleansing Nova for one Urza's Ruinous Blast as it keeps some of your board alive if you're controlling at least a few legends(and assuming your opponent's doesn't). To add to the subtheme, Heroes' Podium, On Serra's Wings and Outlaws' Merriment might be good adds. Also, 5 spot removals is a bit on the low side, but it's all a matter of preference. My EDH decks run 10-12 and 2 wraths. But it all depends on taste and the meta you play in... If you want to check my deck out and compare, here's a link ^^ http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/fellowship-of-the-first-men/

You can do a lot better with the auras you have for Narset.
Battle Mastery is a cheap one that gives double strike to her.
Steel of the Godhead gives her a +2/+2 boost as well as making her unblockable with lifelink.
Eldrazi Conscription will just decimate people if you free cast it with Narset.
Aqueous Form gives her unblockable and lets you scry.
On Serra's Wings can give her a bunch of keyword abilities and a boost.
Corrupted Conscience you can put on Narset for infect wins or use it to steal a good creature.
Scourge of the Nobilis gives +2/+2 , lifelink , and a way to drain extra mana during combat to go for a kill.
Response / Resurgence is another extra combat spell you could use in the deck.

Serra, Holy Patron
Legendary Planeswalker - Serra
+2 Target creature gets +1/+1 and gains flying, vigilance and lifelink until end of turn
+1 Until your next upkeep, white creatures get +1/+2, and nonwhite creatures get -2/-1
-X Choose any number of artifacts and/or enchantments equal to half X, rounded down. Destroy each of the chosen permanents
-8 You get an emblem with "creatures you control with base power and toughness 1/1 get +5/+5 and have flying"
It can't be a commander itself, but useful in general for commander format. Especially decks with Elspeth, or Superfriends decks with a lot of 1/1 token production. Or just any token production decks with a lot of white.
Make a land with suspend. Unless that's a ninja I see on the notification beacon. In which case, do the challenge above.
