I mean this in the kindest way: I think you're packing too many big guns without enough ramp and utility. I don't think 4 ramp spells, especially Legendary ones, are sufficient to crank out creatures fast enough, let alone protect them and disrupt opponents.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood seems like a good fit here, as does Utopia Sprawl . And you really can't go wrong with Birds of Paradise , either, but Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic will work just was well. I'd encourage you to run at least 6x ramp spells. I'm speaking from my experience trying to build Elf Warrior Tribal, mono-green +1/+1 counters, mono-white +1/+1 counters, Selesnya +1/+1 counters, and Simic +1/+1 counters. In each case, speed and resiliency have been the major factors determining the deck's success or failure. The best of all of those, incidently, is mono-white +1/+1 counters, because it's the fastest, and because white offers so many useful spells at low CMCs. All that said, there are a ton of spells that are relevant here and I wish you the very best of luck in finding a winning assemblage.

So here's a list of spells of varying cost that might be helpful: Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Hunger of the Howlpack , Inspiring Call , Simic Ascendancy , Hydroid Krasis , Tezzeret's Gambit , Incubation Druid , Vinelasher Kudzu , Chasm Skulker , Servant of the Scale , Arcane Adaptation , Metallic Mimic , Tuskguard Captain , Vines of Vastwood , Heroic Intervention , Incubation / Incongruity , Beast Within , Pongify , Turn to Frog , Fog , Harmonize , Return to Nature , Field of Ruin , Scavenger Grounds , Muddle the Mixture , Negate , Cyclonic Rift , Vapor Snag

If your budget is $250, you have quite a bit of room for upgrades, though I won't fault you for saving some money. If you were to upgrade that far I'd make these changes:

-4 Figure of Destiny , -2 Vapor Snag ; +2 Topplegeist , +2 Spectral Sailor , +2 Supreme Phantom

-1-2 Selfless Spirit , +1-2 Unsettled Mariner

-4 Unsubstantiate , +4 Remand

-1 Dovin's Veto , +1 Spell Pierce

-4 Mana Leak , +4 Path to Exile

This is a cool deck bro! I don't play modern anymore, but I thnk Vapor Snag would do more work than for you than Unsummon . Unless you have some reason to not swap it out.

I think I picture a tempo/weenie build... like combining how merfolk/illusions play with some silver bullet options that white gives.... Remand / Mana Leak and Vapor Snag /Dispell with maybe Rebuff the Wicked / Brave the Elements / Emerge Unscathed ..I mainly advocate for Squadron Hawk for the decks namesake but there certainly is power with the psuedo draw/deckthinning hawks provide.

This will play like an aggro or midrange deck. Blighted seems really fragile. The ability to play counterspells doesn't make you a control player. Control is about slowly accumulating more advantage than your opponent. 4x Delver of Secrets  Flip, 4x Augur of Bolas , 4x Spellstutter Sprite , 4x Faerie Miscreant , 4x Preordain , 4x Ponder , 4x Counterspell , 4x Vapor Snag , 4x Snap , 3x Blink of an Eye , 2x Foil

A soul sister deck would give your friend a bit of trouble. If he's using Krovikan Mist , he's got a pretty heavy creature list. Could use more info on his playstyle. I wager he's going straight up aggro using dudes like Phantasmal Bear , Vapor Snag and Phantasmal Dragon but I could also see him doing something more control-like with Riftwing Cloudskate , Draining Whelk , meloku the cloud mirror and Counterspell since it sounds like he's pretty annoying.

A mid-range life gaining deck sounds like it will consistently give you more turns to play bigger threats and overall be winning more games. Blue has a lot of problem solving cards so I wouldn't rely on a single card to win you a game, especially if it can get countered. I'd lean more to redundancy and playing relevant cards.

Strategies that use creatures like Soul Warden , Thragtusk or making a deck around that new card Bishop of Wings since angels can block flyers or Suture Priest or Gray Merchant of Asphodel

thank u for your comment I like your idea to swoap Dispel and Vapor Snag for Mana Leak . I think Weave Fate is too slow. Izzet Charm is a better choice here instead because of the opportunities. But Divination would be a nice choice.
