I guess you can technically talk about booster stories within the context of my original question. There are places for that are ready though, so if you could please post those within those threads.
As you can tell I'm not a booster man, I buy all my cards out right. I used to be a booster pack person, but then I realized I was just wasting a bunch of money. I only buy boosters as a prize play for whenever I play casual with my brother and nephew. I do enjoy the enthusiasm though.
Transcendent Envoy I freaking love the card and card art for it!! I first discovered this card while building my nephew his first magic deck! A helpful commenter showed me the card and it's actually one of the pillars of the deck! These are stories I like.

Shielded by Faith and other Aura enchantments must be attached to a permanent (usually a creature--the text box will have the details, or the type line in older cards) at all times. It can't "fall off" and stay on the battlefield. Equipment artifacts can be on the field without being attached, though. Darksteel Plate is an Equipment that gives creatures indestructible, but it's considerably more expensive.

Also since transcendent envoy is a enchantment would a enchantment destruct card like one that says destroy target enchantment, would that kill my Griff?

GolgariGirl thanks for the feedback! It's always exciting to get feedback. Ok after looking at the deck, maybe more enchantments are a good idea. Especially with some of the cards you mentioned.
However I probably won't cut the crown and scepter. I am sure I can teach these two cards to him.
On top of that I've been wanting to use them for awhile now as well. I'm sure the deck would be better without them.
Also not trying to use any life gain or tokens. Not a fan of either tactic. I feel they make the game waaaay longer and tokens are how lots of people play these days.
However Spirit Loop did get my attention. That card seems like a really nice fit.
However Transcendent Envoy is a GREEAT suggestion! Thank you! Griffin Dreamfinder is also another good suggestion. Thanks again for the thoughtful suggestions and help. My nephew will be thanking you later lol!

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.

Cool deck! I found it on Reddit because I was also trying to figure out why I couldn't find Remove Enchantments in mtgo. I spent a bunch of time trying to get a Brine Giant into an Acid Trip deck (another deck remove enchiladas would be great for...)

Hey, good start on a budget version of Tuvasa.
Some budget cards to consider adding:
- Fertile Ground : mana.
- Setessan Champion : enchantress.
- Vanishing : protection for Tuvasa and auras she has.
- Overgrowth : mana.
- Verduran Enchantress enchantress.
- Wolfwillow Haven : mana.
- Stony Silence : opponent artifact disruption.
- Shielding Plax : hexproof for Tuvasa.
- Duelist's Heritage : double strike.
- Favor of the Overbeing : flying and vigilance.
- Stubborn Denial
- Open the Vaults : reanimate all enchantments.
- Seal of Primordium
- Kenrith's Transformation
- Archon of Sun's Grace
- Destiny Spinner
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Azorius Signet
- Lightning Greaves
- Selesnya Signet
- Simic Signet
- Swiftfoot Boots
- Chromatic Lantern
- Arcane Signet
- Reclamation Sage
- Llanowar Elves
- Danitha Capashen, Paragon
- Transcendent Envoy
- Herald of the Pantheon
- Starfield Mystic
- Kestia, the Cultivator
- Sun Titan
- Creeping Renaissance
Consider more enchantments, less mana rocks and creatures? Adding more land auras as well as more enchantresses could replace mana rocks, Sol Ring is the exception. With only Sol then Stony Silence could disrupt your opponents artifacts. More advice for cuts is to streamline the creature base. Use the other creature spots to add more enchantments.
Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Herald of the Pantheon , Starfield Mystic and Transcendent Envoy could be cut for more low CMC enchantments since you have more low CMC enchantments then higher CMC ones which makes these cost reducers subpar. To replace Greaves and Boots for protection for Tuvasa instead use some auras. Vanishing can be repeatable protection for Tuvasa and all auras on her from removal even board wipes. When Tuvasa phases out all the auras she has also phase out. When she phases in at your next untap step all the auras also come back still with her.
Good luck with your deck.
