You should get a Doubling Season to get to their ults as soon as they are played. Also Ajani, Mentor of Heroes with Sorin, Grim Nemesis summoned with Ugin, the Spirit Dragon has won a few games for my friend who plays a Sisay deck.

I feel like Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is something this deck could make great use of. His second +1 ability seems super relevant. Every one of Dack Fayden 's abilities is relevant in any game of commander. Every one of Kaya, Orzhov Usurper 's abilities is relevant in any game of commander. Narset, Parter of Veils is a literal nightmare. Nahiri, the Harbinger is surprisingly flexible removal (and looting). Sarkhan Unbroken is just a really good, relevant card whose +1 and -2 are just super nice to have at your disposal. Same goes for Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , but he has a -3, not a -2.

There are a lot of instances where Shalai, Voice of Plenty could be useful, Oath of Kaya , while perhaps more oriented toward formats where life starts at 20, is still a solid card, and life gain is very rarely irrelevant.

Wilderness Reclamation is bat-shit crazy with Sisay. Related- your ramp is lacking in a serious way. Yeah, I get that you have a bunch of creature that ramp you but the problem with that is 1- half of them only produce one color of mana, and 2- more importantly, every single color has access to creature removal. Maybe your meta runs a ton of artifact hate and 0% board wipe, that's the only reason I can think of that you wouldn't just use signets and Rampant Growth effects.

Zerraphon I think if you want a control based Angel deck Jenara, Asura of War is also a decent choice. The problem with white control decks is that you want to Boardwipe a lot, so your deck hast to be adapted to that. In a Selesnya deck i would rather play green draw like Rishkar's Expertise and Harmonize over Mind's Eye but it is a decent card to draw in mono white. Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is okish, it is a little costly for what it does and normally if you really want to play control you want your Instants and Sorceries in your hand and not lose them to the Ajani plus ability. If you like the card you can obviously make it work somehow ;). If you really want to play white control tho, i would recommend looking into stuff like Avacyn, Angel of Hope cause she gives everything indestructible and you can boardwipe away as you please.

Really Depends what you want to play but i think if you want to control blue is the way to go and Jenara is probably pretty good for it.

Patdypat Awesome, I appreciate your feedback! Unfortunately there arnt a whole lot of great commanders for a control based angel tribal deck! I’ve ran a karametra edh deck and it was so stupid powerful! But that’s not really want I want to play again as it drew so much hate! (Hahah, and it got boring rather quickly) I never thought of making Shalai, Voice of Plenty as my commander if I’m being honest! Although, now I have some more questions! Lol. Do you think a Mind's Eye would be good in a control deck without blue? And what about Ajani, Mentor of Heroes , how would you feel about him being included? (I really only ask about some of these cards because of the masterpiece set(s) that they have! (I’m a big sucker for them) would you consider having a Darksteel Plate so I can wboardwipe and not worry about the death of my commander?

And lastly, what kind of instants and/or sorcories would you include in a deck such as this? Without the blue or black?

K4m4r0 on 100 life? I'm not losing first!

UpperDeckerTaco thank you for your suggestion but I like Ajani, Mentor of Heroes more than Ajani, the Greathearted . Both his +1 are better and care for more survivability. If I get my hands on another Rings of Brighthearth , I'll put them in. Nice tip, thanks!
