I moved Corrupted Conscience, since Infect might be a bit too powerful for my group but I could swap it back in for a more competitive game.
I feel like I don't have enough auras but I'll do some play-testing tonight to see if that's actually the case.

Maybe more tutors + Angel's Grace to combo off of Near-Death experience.
Insidious Dreams might be a great set-up card for you if you can protect your top deck from manipulation. The usual tutors (expensive and inexpensive alike) might all have a role to play, too.
- Dimir Machinations to fetch Solemnity or Unlife, for example.
- Vampiric Tutor
- Grim Tutor
- Cruel Tutor
- Mastermind's Acquisition
- Dark Petition
- Liliana Vess
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Sidisi, Undead Vizier
- Razaketh, the Foulblooded
- Enlightened Tutor
- Academy Rector
If you want to play pillow-fort or "Abzan Prison" (or "Junk Prison"), which might also be a good name for the deck, you really want to assemble your defense as quickly as possible, so the more prison effects and tutors the better. You might be able to cut down on some creatures that don't advance your plan. That is to say, play creatures that tax like either Thalia, or provide a Banisher Priest or Shriekmaw effect).
I love the white counter-spells, but you're not really sitting in the control seat in this deck because you want people to be unable to interact with you, so trim everything that doesn't make you invincible or remove a threat. Think cards like Anguished Unmaking and Hero's Downfall.
Have fun brewing!

Don't let the haters get you down. I have been tweaking a mono white deck pretty much since I started playing commander. It definitely has a lot of drawbacks but its fun to play and when it works it works well.
Speaking from experience the biggest problem I have is balancing the deck. If I want to play big splashy white creatures one usually has to lean towards stax effects and keeping other players from interacting with you until you can find enough mana/rocks to start going. This however, is counterproductive because it puts a big target on my head because im being the fun police.
So I stopped running things like Crackdown, Kismet, and Authority of the Consuls. or any other card that effected other players all the time. I switched them up for more reactive cards like Wing Shards that would allow me to have turns where I could play "draw go". It takes the target off my head and makes people more leery of coming at me.
Its worked for me pretty well. Right off the bat people aren't paying attention to me because im in mono white. But there are plenty of strategies that can work in the color, you might just have to work a little bit to find ways to get there.

Unlife: Eldrazi Monument cost is kinda up there. As for Storm Herd, i dont use it because most of my token producers are chosen because they keep on giving and have med to low cmc. Plus by the time i get ten mana ill be wanting to cast other stuff. Also im steering away from anthem cuz they tend to have high cost nd imo arent worth it.
Steelspike:Crackdown and Crawlspace are both good. Ive considered both before. I consider them more staxy than taxy. Ill consider them again. Now Contagion Engine for some reason i never considered before nd i think its a good suggestion. Not sure i like the others you mentioned. Im unfamiliar with that combo but i will look more into it.
Thank you all for your time.

Omen Machine is great against control decks. Also, you can bounce it with Blood Clock/Umbilicus so you can skip the reveal if you want. With Vedalken Orrery you can play it during your opponents upkeep, or keep it for a political reasons.
Just a few thoughts. :)
