All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.

Add the following Lands. They will trigger Regna, the Redeemer the turn she comes into play.
Blighted Steppe
Scoured Barrens
Seraph Sanctuary
Springjack Pasture
Kabira Crossroads

Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)

Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board

Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.

Create Mana
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.

You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.

Your enchantments are good.

Artifacts should be replaced with mana rocks or mana reduction effects like Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, Oketra's Monument, and Bontu's Monument.

I think you'll want to up your lands to 23-25. Blighted Steppe/Kabira Crossroads help you out. Aven Riftwatcher is also a very good creature, it only last a few turns but is great for them, and I like Nyx-Fleece Ram. Survival Cache is a way for you to draw cards.

Played at Mothership

2-1 vs Burn 1-2 vs Merfolk 2-1 vs Ponza

Definitely took the three drop and land advice to heart Played a instant speed Angel of Invention off Windbrisk Heights vs ponza which was nice Also cracked Blighted Steppe for 10 against burn for all the lolz

Blighted Steppe would do wonders with all the creatures youll have.

Nice looking deck.

You might run into problems facing early AoE-damage, since all but one of your early game creatures have 1 toughness as long as you dont pull out your Archangel of Thune or Honor of the Pure fast enough.

Maybe one or two Wilt-Leaf Liege would be a nice addition in that regard.

Westvale Abbey  Flip is a cute idea, but the mana cost is far too high in my opinion + killing of 5 creatures (that are likely to have some +1/+1 counters on them at this point of the game) slows you down more than it benefits you I think.

A great replacement for it would be Legion's Landing  Flip. It's low cost, spawns you a lifelink minion and you have the possibility of another early mana source + more lifelink creatures for 3 mana.

A nice maybecard could be Blighted Steppe if it goes late or you are struggling to activate your Serra Ascendant.

As for creatures you might add, i think Lone Rider  Flip is an option you might consider.

But all in all a cool deck :-)

Fist of all, Brainstorm isn't modern legal.

Second of all Eerie Interlude is really bad here. It's way too clunky.

Blighted Steppe Is not that good either. It'll net you like 2 life when cracked, and you can't track it throughout most of the game. Blighted Cataract is much better.

Here are my land suggestions:

1x Adarkar Wastes

1x Blighted Cataract

1x Caves of Koilos

1x City of Brass

1x Command Tower

1x Sejiri Refuge

1x Drowned Catacomb

1x Fetid Pools

1x Glacial Fortress

1x Irrigated Farmland

1x Isolated Chapel

1x Maze of Ith - not really a land because it doesn't tap for mana, but it's a good card

1x Nimbus Maze

1x Path of Ancestry

1x River of Tears

1x Scoured Barrens

Here are the land cuts:

Which would leave you with a manabase of:

1x Adarkar Wastes

1x Arcane Sanctum

1x Blighted Cataract

1x Caves of Koilos

1x City of Brass

1x Command Tower

1x Dismal Backwater

1x Drowned Catacomb

1x Esper Panorama

1x Evolving Wilds

1x Fetid Pools

1x Glacial Fortress

1x Irrigated Farmland

2x Island

1x Isolated Chapel

1x Jwar Isle Refuge

1x Maze of Ith

1x Nimbus Maze

1x Opal Palace

1x Path of Ancestry

5x Plains

1x Prairie Stream

1x Reliquary Tower

1x River of Tears

1x Scoured Barrens

1x Shambling Vent

1x Sunken Hollow

3x Swamp

1x Temple of Deceit

1x Temple of Enlightenment

1x Temple of Silence

1x Temple of the False God

1x Tranquil Cove

1x Underground River

1x Vault of the Archangel

This manabase can largely be ported over to Zur, except for the lifegain taplands like Jwar Isle Refuge, which I think are generally just okay but are good in this deck because with Oloro out, you can play it and draw a card. I tried to keep the prices pretty low, because I didn't know your budget, but you can add Hallowed Fountain and stuff if you like (especially that one since it's cheap). Bad fetches like Bad River and Flood Plain get better if you spring for shocklands.

Such a sweet idea and what a beautiful curve :O Not sure whether light of sanction works how you want it to or not you'll have to check that one. I reckon you should look into mana doublers and more x tokens spells for this deck making it more of a tokens deck at heart. Look at Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens and Thought Vessel for additional ramp and Storm Herd and Entreat the Angels for tokens. The deck needs more card draw too and rocks that double as card draw later and produce a reasonable amount of colourless for their cmc are worth running (see Hedron Archive and Mind Stone). I reckon you can cut a bit of single target removal from this deck too Stasis Snare, Arrest and Kor Sanctifiers aren't needed. Vessel of Ephemera is fricking terrible by the way you should drop that. You should play more non-basic land too. Windbrisk Heights, Blighted Steppe, Ghost Quarter and (if you wanna splash out) Emeria, The Sky Ruin would be decent choices. That reminds me Legion's Landing and Cathars' Crusade should be in here too (both of which you own)!

I think you really want to prioritise getting the mono colour mana-doublers for this deck because you really need a lot of mana to pump into making tokens. The lack of card draw and ramp in white are what makes it struggle in commander and you have to do everything you can to counteract this. Really love the deck though its one of a kind don't how you found all this en-kor stuff but its so cool! Hate to say it because I don't wanna take away from daxos but Avacyn, Angel of Hope would be epic in here too... Maybe just print out a proxy and you can switch it between decks if people have a problem with it? :)
