I understand that you wanted to maintain the "Kamigawa" feel, but I think that Hold the Line and Ethereal Haze are probably not particularly strong in here; same with Terashi's Grasp. Perhaps those cards can be substituted for some removal spells: Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile and for enchantment and artifact removal, cards like Return to Dust, Aura of Silence, or Abolish so on come to mind. Potentially, you can run Door of Destinies to add to the tribal scaling effects. You should probably run Thalia's Lancers as a tutor for some of your fun legendary dudes, perhaps Recruiter of the Guard as a tutor as well. Also not sure why, Alesha is necessarily better in here Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder or Tajic, Blade of the Legion or Basandra, Battle Seraph. Though Alesha's reanimation might be helpful to keep pressure up.

Abolish is another fun card since you can discard an unneeded Plains to cast it for no mana to surprise your opponents. Seal of Cleansing and Aura of Silence are more helpful cards in that you can cast it early and sacrifice it at any time without needing to spend mana on it. Seal of Cleansing and Aura of Silence are also recurrable by Sun Titan and Emeria Shepherd.
Lastly Worldslayer is brutally powerful for this commander. Since your commander can gain indestructible, equipping this to her is practically a game finisher. I'd recommend also running Steelshaper's Gift and Open the Armory to help search for that equipment to help you reach the end game sooner.
If you're going to destroy everything on board your Avacyn, Angel of Hope can make board-wipe one-sided. Boros Charm also works in giving your stuff indestructible or could give your commander double strike which could help dealing lethal commander damage to someone or you could also select the 4 damage mode to take out a planeswalker.

Inquisitor's Flail only doubles combat damage, so no worries about burn or The Purple Dragon :)
I'm a fan of Abolish, Krosan Grip, and Nature's Claim. Normally Aura Shards is amazing, but I don't feel like you have enough creatures here to justify it. I'm also a fan of Deglamer, Return to Dust, and Unravel the Aether, because they bypass indestructability.
My only complaint with Sword of Body and Mind is that it can give your opponents an ADVANTAGE if they're playing reanimation or graveyard recursion (which everyone in my meta is). But if it works for you, go for it!

I feel very strongly about the idea of banning a deck archetype in any format, but commander is where I feel the strongest. With somewhere around 15,000 cards in existence and a deck of 100 single cards, there is no excuse to not be able to stand a chance against anything. Opponent has mad card draw? There's a card for that. Opponent ramps life to 4386 life in 3 turns? There's a card for that? Savage Beating imprinted on Spellbinder equpped to Ferropede? There are 153 artifact only removal and some, Abolish namely, are free.
Banning a style is the reaction of a weak player and sore loser. Even if group hug is a horror in the meta, you can't say there isn't a few cards you can trade off to beat it a without destroying your deck.
