I'm gonna run this in my Blood Seeker deck with Hunted Phantasm. Biggest problem with that deck is people who spam the things that this counters.
Also, you have to run this with Guile. You just have to.

Dovescape + Guile + noncreature spell (played by anyone) = infinite doves

1) Spell is cast
2) Dovescape triggers, tokens are made
3) Guile exiles the spell, the you choose to cast the spell
4) Repeat steps 1-3 until infinite is achieved, then choose not to cast the exiled spell.

Turn 7 combo seems kinda slow though, but still very satisfying and relatively easy to fit into a deck.

I use this in a deck with Glorious Anthem and Eldrazi Monument. Does pretty well. If I can get a Soul Warden early then play the Anthem, then Raise the Alarm, then Eldrazi, followed by the Dovescape. True this takes time, but I usually have a few counterspells handy to buy me a turn or two.

If anyone is wondering, Isochron Scepter does not get through this. It can be considered, however, to be a flying Raise the Alarm without card disadvantage every turn, and that's pretty good.

So I still play the two together. I also play this with Guile, Guardian Seraph and Blood Seeker. I have a friend who plays Soul Wardens, though, and that kind of hurts. Thankfully I pack a decent amount of removal.

You could just play something like Thistledown Liege or Eldrazi Monument to make your own birds bigger than your opponent's, then play noncreature spells that can't be countered.

This, Boseiju, Who Shelters All and Raking Canopy makes up one of my disabling combos in my disabler deck

seems lethal in combination with soulcatchers' aerie, although you must have a way to keep the birds from your opponent that also get better out of the picture. would a circle of protection white or blue stop the threat?

Awesome art,
but this has *got* to be one of he most random card ideas ever:

"Hey man... what if we made a spell that, like, countered spells and gave people birds in exchange?"

"*cough* DUDE- that makes perfect sense! Call it Dovescape. Pass the Funyuns!"

That Guile combo is hilarious and one of the most absurd infinite combos in the game.
Also, try casting an Energy Field before Dovescape- you're practically immortal!

But they really missed a chance to please everyone here:
