Warden of Evos Isle
Creature — Bird Wizard
Creature spells with flying you cast cost less to cast.

Maybe you could take advantage of the Changeling mechanic a bit. Stuff like Birthing Boughs and Maskwood Nexus (so you can make an ETB at Instant Speed). Bloodline Pretender gives you a slow build if cast early, and only costs if Unesh is already on the field.
Sphinx Ambassador is a card that can make people ragequit on the spot, especially with all the counterspell backup you have. Stormtide Leviathan is terrible in most decks, but amazing in this one.
Also, with all the ETB abilities you have here, I really recommend Ghostly Flicker, Displace, and Illusionist's Stratagem because they give your sphinxes some evasion while also doubling up on their ETBs.
A bit more reduction could really do you well. Maybe Warden of Evos Isle and/or Thryx, the Sudden Storm?

Thank you both for your suggestions.
CoarselyRefined I couldn't find room for Maskwood Nexus, Arcane Adaptation, and Turntimber Ranger, but I'll likely use that idea in another deck.
seshiro_of_the_orochi I added Cryptic Gateway and Warden of Evos Isle. Warden of Evos Isle also led me to find and add Curiosity Crafter, which flavor wise works nicely with Arcane Flight

Esior and Anara as the commanders of this list is poetry! Very flavourful, great thing!
Cryptic Gateway would be a great card in here. Also, Warden of Evos Isle might be an aven, but it definitely is an owl, as well, and it cheapens half your deck. Cemetery Prowler is expensive, but another powerful wolf.

you should check out Watcher of the Spheres. it's similar to Warden of Evos Isle but with less CMC

If you want to draw cards with creatures, how about Sky Hussar?
Actually, a number of cards with Forecast might be useful - Plumes of Peace to tap a creature, or Steeling Stance to boost a flyer. Too bad Pride of the Clouds is so expensive. It would fit in nicely.
I'm not sure you want so many copies of Warden of Evos Isle and Watcher of the Spheres. Maybe drop to three each and add a couple of Kor Skyfisher to reuse your card draws?

There are very few birds to be found here. Odd, because this is a tribal bird theme deck. You aren't even running Maskwood Nexus or Arcane Adaptation
So here are some birds I found that would be fun to play:
Aven Brigadier !!!!!
Whippoorwill an exile for so little the cost
Storm Crow why isn't this here?
Spire Owl cheap, but nice
Sephara, Sky's Blade this hits the field by turn 4 for 1 white mana!
Ledger Shredder badass name and badass ability
Cartographer's Hawk a fun card that empties your deck of plains
Flurry of Wings and Settle the Wreckage There is so much fun to be had
Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker_ look at this scawwwwww _ Warden of Evos Isle not needed, but nice for making 5 mana birds cost less
Empyrean Eagle lord
Kangee, Sky Warden all it takes is one 1/1 bird token to scwwwaaa
Kangee, Aerie Keeper you can't run one bird and not have any feathers ay?
Shabraz, the Skyshark its a sharknado
Wingmate Roc the best wingman
High Sentinels of Arashin use your mana ramp to buff your army
Nimble Obstructionist _a tale's end _

Nice. But the correct format name is Friendly Pauper Brawl.
I would add at least two more lands.
Some other cards to improve the deck:
- Arcane Denial
- Ardenvale Tactician
- Boreal Elemental
- Daybreak Chimera
- Kabuto Moth
- Stormscape Familiar
- Warden of Evos Isle
- Mana Leak
- Azorius Locket
- Azorius Signet
- Aerial Assault
+1 from me.

Celestial Colonnade is only really played in hard-control decks that generally lack any other practical ways to win. In general, i'd say ditch all of your taplands and just ru basics. You'll find that a land coming in tapped will trip up your tempo faaar too often, and with your current card selection I don't see you having many issues at all just running basics anyway. If you are wanting a better manabase on a sudo-budget, I'd suggest getting cards like Glacial Fortress, Adarkar Wastes, and Seachrome Coast. You want to avoid lands that enter tapped at all costs.
Warden of Evos Isle and Watcher of the Spheres don't look like they'll do too much as they won't be able to reduce the cost of a lot of your team (i.e. Skycat Sovereign, Healer's Hawk, Watcher of the Spheres, realistically Sephara, Sky's Blade). I'd think it would make sense to reduce the number of these you're playing (personally i'd ditch Warden of Evos Isle entirely)
a playset of Squadron Hawk should be useful here.
As Foretold does almost nothing for you here, I'd suggest ditching it. Griffin Aerie should probably also be ditched, because there are just too few ways to get value from it in your current list.
Creature based lists like these oftentimes can't make good use of countermagic, like Absorb and Counterspell, because they're using their mana on their turn to play creatures. I thing you would be better off playing proactive-spells instead of reactive ones. Stuff like Path to Exile is going to get you a LOT more value, because it lets you keep playing aggressively on your turns, without having to slow down so much for countering stuff.
Modern decks should always aim towards 60 cards. While running 64 might not seem like much more, it will make your hands & draws weaker overall, and create less consistency. I would suggest strongly to aim to get down to 60 cards (there are a lot of suggestions of stuff to remove above so should be an easy job)
