Cease-Fire Discussion

since many of your combos rely around a few auras, i suggest adding Totem-Guide Hartebeest as a tutor.

if you're going for the control route, might try some counterspells in your colors Dawn Charm, Avoid Fate, Mana Tithe, Cease-Fire

Ward of Lights and Cho-Manno's Blessing serves double duty. You can use it to protect your main pieces, or 'blank' the target of the ghostly flicker, by granting your opponent's creature protection from blue. Tutorable from your Heliod's Pilgrim, and recurrable since its not instant/sorcery.

It sounds like you have quite an issue on your hands and now is the time to form some kind of Blessed Alliance. I'm willing to lend you some Borrowed Grace in order to defeat the menacing Eldrazi. With our Collective Effort we should be able to Purge the world of this evil. What do you think about a temporary Cease-Fire?

There are a lot of cards I would cut right off the bat because they do not offer as much to your deck as you think.

Banishing Light can easily be replaced with Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares. Cheaper and more effective.

Ojutai's Command is very limited in its versatility. It cannot offer you to do the things multiple times over. It is also expensive for what it does offer. There are multitudes of better cards. Get rid of it.

Your runes of protection make the deck unique, but against some token decks they fall apart. They also do not protect against something like Toxic Deluge. Recommend making room for something else with them.

There is a 3 drop white enchantment that came out in the recent commander decks. It does the same thing as Oblivion Ring but for each opponent. I recommend replacing ORing with it when you have the time to get around to it.

Kemba, Kha Regent is a much more efficient way to make tokens with equipment instead of Nahiri.

Maze of Ith helps remove that big bad scary guy who is attacking you.

Silence is almost strictly better than Cease-Fire

More board wipes. The ones you have are a little limited. Try Wrath of God or something like that.

Iona and Avacyn are expensive to get out. Good abilities, but it would be easier if you found some way to cheat them out instead of casting for full cost.

Cyclonic Rift essentially a blue board wipe. You will almost always be casting for the overload cost.

Scroll of Avacyn is pretty meh. Life gain isn't essential in EDH unless you have that as a wincon with something like Felidar Sovereign. There are better cards I would suggest you replacing it with. You could replace it with something to help you ramp into bigger cards or replace it with something to give you card draw.

Why no Azorius Signet or Talisman of Progress? They will help with ramp
