You need ramp. Mono white is hard to be consistent in getting enough mana for late game unless you're running rocks and a doubler or two.
You need Sol Ring, no question. Worn Powerstone could be good too. You can probably afford a Caged Sun, maybe a Thran Dynamo, Doubling Cube or Gilded Lotus. They will really help your consistency. Solemn Simulacrum is an auto include, gets you a land and draws a card, Burnished Hart is also good. Any of those will help you accelerate and have more options. Bare minimum get sol ring and solemn in there.
Otherwise, "cheap" cards that fit your theme are Yosei, the Morning Star, Aven Mindcensor, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, Hushwing Gryff, Grand Abolisher, Karmic Guide, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Admonition Angel, Emeria Shepherd, etc
Could go big with an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite....

@DarkEclipse18 In modern, the game is decided by turn 5-6 at the LATEST. Infect can kill you by turn-2 or Bogles can get a 15+ power creature with hexproof, trample, lifelink, and first strike by turn-3. That doesn't even take into account affinity or Death's Shadow lists, which are the current top two decks in modern. I can guarantee that if you took this current deck to a modern event, it wouldn't take a single game over the course of the night. I know that I sound a bit rough, but my point is that this isn't a modern deck; it's casual.
Admonition Angel/Angel of Serenity are overcosted and inefficient. By the time you get one out, your opponent's threats will have already had upwards of three turns to pressure your board. By that point it's not even worth it to remove them, since you're most likely dead.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope: Indestructible doesn't really do much for you. Sure, it's going to prevent boardwipes, but by that time they're more than likely going to Path to Exile your Avacyn and wipe the board anyway. It's not worth the mana to cast a creature that doesn't immediately impact the board.
Iona, Shield of Emeria: This is the ONE angel in your deck that's worth running. It DOES impact the board upon entry and could be cheated out via Descendants' Path as early as turn-4! Your ramp package will need to be drastically altered, however. It doesn't do ANYTHING the turn you play it, giving your opponent a lot more time to improve their board unabated.

A devotee of the land!
I know exactly what you're up to with Fleetfoot Panther and you may like to know there are more creatures that can do it.

I've been wanting to use Partner commanders and Thrasios, Triton Hero looks like an interesting possibility for a Landfall commander, since not only can his ability potentially get you more lands, triggering Landfall multiple times in a turn, but once you have plenty of mana, it's a great mana sink as well.
But who to pair him with? Given I'm set on a Landfall strategy, I know I want Omnath, Locus of Rage, so the other Partner has to at least be Red.
Would you suggest going Temur colors, whiteless, or blackless? I know both White and Black have some nice Landfall tricks of their own. White gives me access to Emeria Shepherd, Admonition Angel, and Terra Eternal, but Black lets me access The Gitrog Monster and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen.

These are angels you could add
I think you could take out Emancipation Angel, Illusory Angel, Guardian Seraph, Indomitable Archangel, Lightkeeper of Emeria, Malach of the Dawn, Seraph of Dawn, Avenging Angel, Herald of the Host, Patron of the Valiant, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, Archangel, Angel of Salvation
Harsh Mercy seems good as well
It seems like your heavy hitters are 4 mana and up, so i think your ramp should cost less than 4. This way you're not decieding betweenn casting an angel or ramping for other angels. Maybe cut Explosive Vegetation for Rampant Growth. you could cut Belbe's Portal and Quicksilver Amulet for that same reasoning. You could add Simic Signet, Selesnya Signet and Azorius Signet for more ramp as well
You could run some anthems to pump your team as well, I think Door of Destinies could be really good in this type of deck

As someone who has played UW control competitively for a while,
I can give a few suggestions,
Play 24 lands, it's standard for control decks and is the only way you'll be able to cast 6 drops consistently.
Is this for budget? If so I think that AEtherling would be a better finisher then Admonition Angel, since you can protect it and play cards like Wrath of God. (It also means that you can have it as the only creature in the deck.)
Vapor Snag isn't what you are looking for, as Condemn, Path to Exile, and Sunlance are all better options for removal. (I get you want to have the synergy with cards like Meddling Mage but those cards are pretty easy to deal with.)

Hey, so I'm a big fan of white myself and there's a few things I'd consider:
I really think Sword of the Animist is really good, even though mono white isn't exactly the greatest for aggro it pays off big in longer games/slower metas.
Some cuts I'd consider: Emeria Shepherd she always felt to slow to me and Intrepid Hero isn't great imo. That's all I've got, hope it helps. Also you can look at my list if you want some other ideas, Getting Mono.

Hey I just want to throw out there Admonition Angel is one I rarely see but can be a beast, especially paired with green for ramp. I also wanted to say I pretty much agree with Abaques, I would go boros with the deck. Kaalia is actually not good unless you are in a casual group, in my playgroup someone brings her out occasionally only to find that she never sticks around long enough to do anything.
