I did a quick search for flying in the strategy forum and nothing has turned up.

I was hoping people could help turn this into a useful thread flying defense, for those without flying generals (eg kresh and rafiq).

Arashi, the Sky Asunder - More easily recurable than windstorm and can kill flyers while on the battlefield, impressive P/T as well.

Silklash Spider - the best spider ever printed and should make green decks running 20 or more creatures.

Cloudthresher - similar to arashi but in general not as good

Puppeteer Clique - a very powerful card that can also block flyers even if one removal spell was going to hit it first

Skeletal Vampire - is able to block multiple flyers over multiple turns and slightly resistant to removal.

Triskelion - Recurable removal with flying defense as a bonus.

Spidersilk Armor, if you have lots of creatures it may be of some use. Gives a +0/+1 bonus as well. There is also Masticore, if you have lots of mana just sitting around.
