Remember to try to have exactly 60 cards. I see this is a tribal deck made of humans. Try to find a specific objective to attain (such as creating as many tokens as possible and then swinging for tons of damage), or a specific card that you can build around + have alternative winning conditions. Remember tribal decks are vulnerable to board wipes such as Wrath of God. I don't really want to tell you what to do because part of the fun is discovering for yourself what might be better for your deck and establishing your own unique way of winning. Find other decks that work similar to this one (with high scores) and see what adjustments you can make.
Firstly, you have too many creatures. White excels in control and late-game. Oblivion Ring Path to Exile are just two of many great examples that will help you establish control. You also need to prevent boardwipes Selfless Spirit or Make a Stand should help out. Secondly, focus your strategy. You're putting lifegain win-conditions in a non lifegain deck. If you want to gain some life, play something related to your deck Heron's Grace Champion although green would help. If you want protection Sigarda, Heron's Grace. If you want trample Overwhelming Stampede or flying Angelic Overseer
This time you've inspired me, I'll create a new Human's deck. I'll keep you posted

That name though, +1. I know she isnt buff, but since you have so many humans, Angelic Overseer might be a nice addition. Five mana for a 5/3 with flying, hexproof, and indestructible is incredible value. Herald of War is another nice angel addition, but I would only add it if you also add Angelic Overseer. Riders of Gavony is another nice human tribal card, but he/she has some muscles. Riders works best when facing other tribal decks, so maybe toss that into the sideboard instead of the main deck. However, it can offer protection against a win condition. Hilarious theme!

Maybe get rid of Angelic Overseer? I don't think you have enough humans to justify it. Also Angelic Wall really isn't that good. Board wipes: Fumigate is a pretty good destroy all card and Wrath of God is a staple for mono-white. Ramp: Oreskos Explorer and Herald's Horn. Reanimation: Emeria Shepherd and Reya Dawnbringer. Everything Else: Angel of Serenity, Leyline of Sanctity and Thalia's Lancers All in all +1 for the deck, great job building it!

You definitely need removal and some more card advantage in this deck. I would recommend a couple Path to Exiles and Fatal Pushes. Thraben Inspector is just a great 1-drop, Fiend Hunter perma-exiles with your blink effects, Pain Seer and Glint-Sleeve Siphoner are 'great' budget alternatives to Dark Confidant. Kitesail Freebooter has been an all-star in human decks. I wouldn't advise against something like Arguel's Blood Fast Flip or Phyrexian Arena for card advantage as well. Anthems like Always Watching or Radiant Destiny are always good.
For your sideboard, Rest in Peace and Stony Silence. Collective Brutality is fantastic against control with its discard effect, and is one of the best hosers against burn and aggro. Cards like Fragmentize are always a safe choice. Arashin Cleric is a favorite of mine for faster match ups. Liliana's Defeat and Gideon's Defeat are great against those colors. Duress is also great against control and combo decks. You may need something like Eerie Interlude to protect yourself against wraths.

Staying on theme for angels and humans, Magus of the Wheel is a human that draws cards. Ive been adopting it into my decks. Also, Angelic Overseer fits the angels humans theme, and is pretty strong...it does compete with your commander CMC slot though.

Well both of the Odrics would be neat in this (Odric, Master Tactician and Odric, Lunarch Marshal). Angelic Overseer would also be pretty terrifying. Also, you don't have any actual human lords in there... Crovax, Ascendant Hero would be pretty great, as would Knight of Glory. Also might I suggest you move it to commander? You could use Crovax, Ascendant Hero or Sigarda, Heron's Grace and you would get access to maybe Kindred Summons, Kindred Boon, and Heirloom Blade.

Great commander choice my friend!+1 I to have an Odric, Lunarch Marshal build. He also was my very first commander deck, I can confirm that he rocks! I have found that Odric's ability makes him superior during combat and you should try to utilize this as much as possible.
I gotta say that it can pretty hard to keep your creatures on board since Odric can become scary when you start dropping value on the board. People tend to just remove him before your can equip or utilize keywords during combat so hexproof and indistructable are your must haves before you start swinging. A "protection" sub theme can also help you out to keep your creatures around.
In my opinion these are must haves if you're playing Odric:
- Oketra's Monument
- Skullclamp, you're mono-white so card draw is going to be your biggest issue
- Swiftfoot Boots
- Archangel of Tithes, a flying, face hitting Ghostly Prison on a stick.
- Mother of Runes
- Stoneforge Mystic, although a bit expensive, really worth it
- Angelic Overseer, combo's perfectly with Odric
I also think that you could use some raw power for the late game like Akroma, Angel of Wrath.

Metallic Mimic feels kind of weak in a deck with actual strong tribal tools like humans. In addition, Angelic Overseer feels kind of low impact for 5 mana. While it offers a bit of protection against board wipes, Selfless Spirit and Dauntless Escort are much better options.
Mayor of Avabruck Flip is a great human anthem that can flip into a repeatable token producer, while Devout Chaplain is a piece of repeatable artifact/enchantment removal. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip is a great token producer that doubles as a strong beater.
Finally, there are some great mana dorks that work very nicely with Samut's untapping ability. Somberwald Sage and Shaman of Forgotten Ways both generate multiple mana, and the shaman's second ability can't be overlooked as a way to close out games. Krosan Restorer also generates lots of mana when you have threshold. Avacyn's Pilgrim, Zhur-Taa Druid, and Steward of Valeron are some other decent mana dorks in your colors.
