looks dope, dude! how about Inniaz, the Gale Force just to fuck with people? maybe Siani, Eye of the Storm for great card selection. Watcher of the Spheres can bring down the cost of your dudes, and Thunderclap Wyvern is another lord. Can't have too many lords ;) stay frosty!

At the moment, it looks like you basically have two different decks mashed into one. If you cut your 120 cards into two decks of 60, you'll essentially have double the options to play while improving the power level of both. The two main strategies I'm seeing here are Naya ramp/midrange and some sort of bird/flying tribal. I'll give some of my budget suggestions for both archetypes.

For Naya ramp, you definitely want to focus on the mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Ilysian Caryatid, and Knotvine Mystic before using the extra mana to play your threats like Godsire, Titanic Ultimatum, and Atarka, World Render. Midrange will forego some of the lower and upper ends of the curve to play efficient midgame creatures like Retaliator Griffin, Managorger Hydra, and Llanowar Visionary. Some other ramp options include Voyaging Satyr, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rampant Growth, Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl. Some other bombs include Hornet Queen, Vigor, Archetype of Endurance, Terastodon, Armada Wurm, Gruul Ragebeast, Rakeclaw Gargantuan, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Woodfall Primus, and Warstorm Surge. Some midrange threats are Wild Nacatl, Woolly Thoctar, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Burning-Tree Emissary, and Bloodbraid Elf.

For birds, I'd definitely recommend swapping red out for blue. This lets you play flying buffs like Empyrean Eagle, Watcher of the Spheres, Skycat Sovereign, Jubilant Skybonder, Favorable Winds, Flurry of Wings, and Stolen by the Fae. Some options that stay in white are Sephara, Sky's Blade, Emeria Angel, Midnight Haunting, and Battle Screech. Some additional bird stuff could be Aven Mimeomancer, Pride of the Clouds, Wingmate Roc, Kangee, Aerie Keeper, Call, and Murmuring Mystic. These types of decks generally go as wide as possible, buff the team with anthem effects, and swing in the air for the win.

Cards I see in this deck that don't fit in either archetype are Ajani's Pridemate, Pyroceratops, End Hostilities, Planar Outburst, Star of Extinction, Giant Growth, Moonhold, Double Vision, Furor of the Bitten, and Darksteel Pendant. At least, those are the first that spring to mind as targets to replace first. Anyway, let me know if you have any questions about my suggestions and I wish you good luck with your build!

Hey man, love the deck! Flyers are always fun, and the Monty Python reference is great. Anyways, here's some suggestions:

Inniaz, the Gale Force: Trade away your mana rocks for some sweet payoffs, play your opponents like a fiddle, and get in for big damage. Wheee!

Watcher of the Spheres: Discounts on your creatures, what more do you want?

Selfless Spirit: I know you've considered it, but seeing as you're a creature toolbox deck, it's nice to have some protection.

Also, sorry about not responding sooner, I've been studying for a big test. Hope these suggestions help, and as always, Happy Tapping!

Nice deck. About the only suggestion I'd make would be your manabase. If you can afford the upgrade, Hallowed Fountain and Flooded Strand are worthy inclusions.

What are your thoughts on Watcher of the Spheres?

I want to breathe some life into this deck, and am inspired by Watcher of the Spheres.

I've also thought about adding Pride of the Clouds and Skycat Sovereign, but is that too off theme in this Bird deck?

Thoughts and Upvotes please :)
