Philigan87: Thank you! I feel vindicated to know that some of the old cards impress you; you clearly know the modern game very well, and I think that if you like a card, it says something!
For Omnath (and related threats), I'm planning to run Circle of Protection: Red, Slaughter, and Deathgrip. The catch is that they're all very expensive to use; I can see the point of Armament of Nyx, if you don't expect too many Wraths or have a good way to get cards back from the graveyard.
Spectra Ward: I like the abilities but not the casting cost. I'd definitely prefer Flickering Ward, especially since it's a card-drawing engine with Enchantresses in play.
Silent Sentinel: use Monk Idealist.
Agreed that Broken Fall is unnecessary with Karador. It gives you some more draw with Enchantresses, but you don't need that if you're making efficient use of your graveyard.
I agree that Dueling Grounds isn't the best card here; it's one of those cards that either you build the whole deck around, or you don't use at all...
Some other cards I think you'll find interesting:
- Light of Day is a one-card win condition against most Zombie decks.
- Allay. (Note, Shred Memory can tutor into it.) I think Allay has a place in almost any deck, but it's something to worry about once people who splash white discover it. As answers to it, there are three white counterspells in Future Sight (there's a "List of Color Pie Bends/Breaks" that mentions them) -- and there's Null Brooch, from Exodus, the same set as Allay itself.
- Sacred Mesa. At first I was stubbornly running it because I liked the flavor; but I'm starting to think that it's a really strong card. Look at Black Market + Sacred Mesa + Twilight Drover , especially!
- For mana ramp: Carpet of Flowers and Priest of Titania. Priest of Titania is one of those cards that breaks the game completely if she sticks around -- and I think she's on-theme for this deck, too! (Imagine getting away with Priest of Titania + Soul Foundry .)

What do you think of Allay and Elvish Fury? They're slow and heavy-weight, but Allay is great for breaking through lockdown enchantments, and Elvish Fury is an incredibly frustrating card to play against. With your Gaea's Cradle, you should have enough mana to make good use of them.

All right! Great to see knights being built and used successfully! And I'm really glad to see an Allay in here!

Banding is glorious! It's a fun, flavorful mechanic, and very strong... so strong that when you describe it for the first time, it sounds like you're cheating. (This is probably why they dropped it.)
On my side, I'm going to have to order my own weight in Oketra's Monument, Launch the Fleet, and Temple of Triumph. I'm still getting back into the game after a long hiatus, and I like the look of those cards...

This is your first EDH deck, right? I remember my first EDH deck. There is some good advice in the upper posts regarding your deck (specifically). On that note, I'll add Allay or possibly Disenchant. Something along those lines. If your deck revolves around your commander, then your opponents will shut down your commander. Every player in my group who runs white always main-decks an Arrest. Since you have little-to-no enchantment removal (which is a specialty in white), you'll tend to see your commander get shut down pretty quickly.

I think your misreading Celestial Dawn. It only effects your board. It doesn't do anything to your opponents unless you can give it to them, and even then, with the removal of rule #4, it doesn't hurt them like it previously did. Perhaps your thinking of Painter's Servant. Unfortunately, that cards banned in commander.
Allay is a card I haven't seen before. Thank you for that. The Illusionist's Bracers I've ignored in the past. However I've been trending this deck slowly towards a control shell (for what white can do), so it's something to reconsider.
I've already got Caged Sun in the deck. Love it. It only affects my board, which is why I've kept it in and never slotted Gauntlet of Power. I don't like how global the gauntlet is. Extraplanar Lens has been on my radar, I've just never tried to fit it in. Maybe I have to play with it before I'll learn to appreciate it. I just see it as "spend mana exiling a land, artifacts wiped before next untap". That happens often when I get Caged Sun on board.
Finding slots will be tough. I'll have to think on this.
