Now, if we went for the white weenie route, Conclave Tribunal is a must. There is another route we could go, which involves dropping blue and going full-on white weenie. Reverent Hoplite would be more effective there, but isn't horrible here. Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis gets you a ton of tokens repeatedly.

I think God-Eternal Oketra would be nice in here, maybe in place of Cavalier of Dawn . You could get the destroy permanent ability back with Ugin, the Ineffable who has the added bonus of spitting out tokens.

Love the originality of using a relatively unheard of commander. I see your creature count is on the low side. I have a number of suggestions that would help with the control theme. They are:
- Aven Mindcensor
- Grand Abolisher
- Giver of Runes
- Mother of Runes
- Angel of Jubilation
- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
- Mangara of Corondor
- Bounty Agent
- Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker
- Ranger-Captain of Eos
- Cavalier of Dawn
- Eidolon of Rhetoric
Any or all of these cards would help defend against all sorts of play styles. Not sure what you have going for a wincon but Elesh Norn would make death by combat a lot more viable. That and she shuts down a lot of token strategies.

Honestly, I think that I would go with Adriana, Captain of the Guard . The reason being that knights already have multiple lords that grant double strike, creatures that natively have double strike, and Khorvath and Sylvia have new-school Partner, so drawing either is equivalent to drawing both. In fact, if you're putting enough draw and filtering into your EDH decks, you'll probably find Kwende, Kinsbale Cavalier, or Valiant Knight before you even get to 6 mana to cast Khorvold. You'd rather just give all of your creatures +2/+2 or +3/+3 every turn than keep a 3rd layer of redundancy in the command zone.
As a result, you could just go full knight tribal. Since the de-facto Knight commander is Mardu, it's still a unique deck. You could put in Acclaimed Contender , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Sigiled Sword of Valeron , Righteous Confluence , History of Benalia , Inspiring Veteran , The Circle of Loyalty , Worthy Knight , Gallant Cavalry , Fireborn Knight , Rimrock Knight , Zhalfirin Commander , Militant Angel , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Mirran Crusader , Bloodsworn Steward , Cavalier of Flame , Cavalier of Dawn , Skyhunter Skirmisher , Crimson Honor Guard , Marton Stromgald , Accorder Paladin , Embereth Skyblazer , Ardenvale Tactician , Daring Skyjek , Raging Redcap , Skyknight Legionnaire , and Truefire Paladin . That's all specific to knights, and all the usual tribal stuff is open, as well.

Nice take on Azorius, I think it is better to go up to 23 lands at least to consistently hit Cavalier of Dawn on turn 5
