     n3mo17: I actually just cut All That Glitters, but if I find I'm needing a little more closing power it may get added back in. :)

     Epicurus: Awesome suggestions! I too remember the days of getting slammed by Radiant, Archangel and being unable to respond due to Blinding Angel haha! Great list of suggestions, some of which will definitely hit the maybeboard. I had two Moats when I was a kid; definitely wouldn't of traded them if I had've known.. xD

This is my favorite deck of the month, for sure! I love pillow fort decks :3

Here's a few suggestions. Some are kinda weird, so bear with me here...

I remember back in a time, long ago, when no flying theme deck was complete without Radiant, Archangel. Alas, those days are probably passed.

Cheers!

Not sure how fast you pump out your tokens but Radiant, Archangel and Pride of the Clouds could offer some distractions from your commander and could be sizable beaters. If nothing else they'll eat the removal meant for Alela.

It's a flying deck, have you considered Radiant, Archangel or Pride of the Clouds ?

How about considering Luminarch Ascension . Great angel token maker, esp. with all the dead mana you may have in late game.

Also, some other great angels to consider are Angel of Finality , Angelic Guardian , Radiant, Archangel , Angel of the Dire Hour .

triproberts12 Lyra, once I can afford her, will be in the deck. Using her as commander is intriguing. I haven't updated the deck yet, but I was thinking of using Radiant, Archangel as commander over Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

dragonforce60 I was actually just looking into Fumigate . I do have a Terminus that I could add as well. I'm just stuck on what to take out for it. [Resolute Archangel] is going to be added to the deck when I get a chance to update it. I think I have Angel of Invention , I think I skipped over the life link part. Do I have enough Humans to make Angelic Overseer work to her full potential? I don't know. Worth looking into, but Aegis Angel would be the better of the two, wouldn't they?

This is a challenging tribe to build around. I would recommend checking out Saffron Olive's video on finding the competitive advantage of your tribe. Also, Tomer built a phoenix tribal deck for Commander Clash not too long ago. Watch the end to see how he wins, because it's pretty great.

In terms of specific cards, I think Mana Echoes would go well, since you need a lot of mana to enable phoenixes. Thundermaw Hellkite could be good. Lose Temple of the False God and Dormant Volcano , though, because those are awful cards. The former because it's useless as a 3rd, 4th, or 5th land, and the latter because it's just asking to be strip-mined and is both slow and makes colorless mana.

Finally, you might want to consider adding a second color. For example, in blue, you gain access to Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift (It's freaking Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite in your deck), Sprite Noble , Stormtide Leviathan , Windstorm Drake , Warden of Evos Isle , Windreader Sphinx , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Distant Melody , Mistform Warchief , Faces of the Past , Riptide Shapeshifter , Saheeli's Artistry , Sakashima's Student , Sakashima the Impostor , Metamorphic Alteration , Phantasmal Image , Clone , Quicksilver Gargantuan , Protean Raider , Mirror Image , Gigantoplasm , Stunt Double , Clever Impersonator , Dack's Duplicate , Phyrexian Metamorph , Coastal Piracy , and Bident of Thassa .

In white, you get Archon of Redemption , Energy Storm , Magus of the Moat (and Moat if you have unlimited money), Radiant, Archangel , Serra Aviary , Soulcatcher , Spirit of the Spires , Harsh Mercy , Shared Triumph , Kindred Boon , Mirror Entity , Radiant Destiny , . Going into Jeskai also gives you Teferi's Moat and Thunderclap Wyvern .

Tibor and Lumia would be my choice for an Izzet commander, Aurelia, the Warleader would be my choice for Boros, and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus + Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker would be my choice for Jeskai.
