Without the need to champion an elemental anymore, you probably also don't need some of the weaker elementals like Cloudkin Seer and Squall Drifter . I do think cutting the big guy was a good idea since he isn't that impactful, but it does feel a shame to not have something Thryx, the Sudden Storm is trying to help bring in. Windreader Sphinx was the first card that came to my mind as a big creature that works well in flying tribal. There's also Zetalpa, Primal Dawn if you just want something exceedingly big and dumb. Finally, Celestial Archon could be a decent beater that also triggers Archon of Sun's Grace . On the subject of the Archon, Riptide Chimera seems like it could be a great partner to guarantee at least one pegasus every turn. Plus, it also lets you start your sagas from the beginning instead of needing to sacrifice them while getting even more buffs off Celestial Ancient .

Unless you're playing with some funky homebrew rules, your commander does have to be a legendary creature. For bird tribal, Kangee, Aerie Keeper or Kangee, Sky Warden would be the most obvious choices. Also, Screaming Seahawk does not get around the singleton restriction in the same way something like Relentless Rats does. Even if it did, I still don't think it would be worth running over the much faster Squadron Hawk . More relevant inclusions might be Watcher of the Spheres , Warden of Evos Isle , Soulcatchers' Aerie , Migratory Route , Wingmate Roc , Aven Mimeomancer , Emeria Angel , Favorable Winds , Kangee's Lieutenant , Judge's Familiar , Steel-Plume Marshal , Battle Screech , Skycat Sovereign , Pride of the Clouds , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Jotun Owl Keeper , Windreader Sphinx , Aven Gagglemaster , Thunderclap Wyvern , Jubilant Skybonder , Rally of Wings , Eyes in the Skies , Alrund's Epiphany , Aerial Assault , Rise of Eagles , Door of Destinies , Herald's Horn , Dovescape , Gravitational Shift , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Serra the Benevolent , or Seaside Haven .

Looks like my comment is now a little redundant here, but hope the seconded advice still helps. Good luck!

No Training Grounds? If you can afford it, it's a super amazing card for Jhoira. Nevinyrral's Disk lets you wipe the board at upkeep, in response to removing the last counters from your suspended stuff, so you can clear everything before your stuff comes out. Omniscience combos really well with this deck, because you can cheat it out for cheap and then use it to cheat the rest of your stuff out, too.

Also, this deck is strangely lacking in consistent draw power for one that can cheat so much stuff out. You could use some more consistent cheap stuff that doesn't rely on Jhoira or die to a creature wipe, like Curse of Verbosity, Verity Circle, or Bident of Thassa (Rhystic Study if you have the $). Windreader Sphinx is a bigger one you would probably want to cheat out.

Windreader Sphinx, I'm sorry I every removed you. You are worth every mana of your incredible CMC. You draw a bucket of cards whenever you hit the table and you have a big 'ol butt. Talrand loves you.
