Phantoms should spawn when you have slept a lot instead of when you haven't. This is because right now the player has 2 options: 1. Sleep, don't get any phantoms and skip the night or 2. Don't sleep, dont skip the night and get phantoms. It would be a lot better if the player had to choose between fighting mobs at night or phantoms, this way the player would he faced with a far more interesting dilemma: do you fight the mobs of the night or do you skip the night but get attacked by flying beasts?
Phantoms could also slowly become stronger the more you sleep, so if you sleep for 10 days in a row the phantoms come in massive packs and kill even players with full diamond armor.
This does present 1 probem though, if the player skips the night, when will phantoms spawn? Well since its always day the phantoms would have to spawn during the day, so they can't burn anymore. This would probably require a reskin with a lighter texture to make more sense.
From a lore perspective maybe the phantoms come when the mobs of the night cant spawn, and this casues wherever the mobs come from to create these flying beasts.
Minecraft survival mode is a game about surviving, but right now you only really need a bed to do so, nerfing beds with phantoms would make the game a lot more about surviving.
