How to stall:

Propaganda
Ghostly Prison
Meekstone (There are cheaper prints) Nevermore
Mystic Barrier + Commamder

I don't know any "fast" ways to win but cards I frequently win with are:

Assemble the Legion
Karn Liberated

The way Karn works is if you restart the game with a few Planeswalkers and something like Assemble the Legion and a few lands on the board most people give up. Especially if you've stolen their Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or what have you.

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:

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.

Seems kind of underpowered, even for a budget deck. Obviously, your Mana base wouldn't be great to begin with in a budget deck, but you lack ramp and card draw, both of which are essential to decks in EDH, especially in White. Whilst I profoundly disagree with the argument that White isn't very good on its own in EDH, it does have many problems in budget decks. I'd recommend you to filter out cards that are seemingly purposeless such as Wall of Omens or Eight-and-a-Half-Tails .

Furthermore, I find that your removal is barely acceptable considering that you're playing mono-White. Since you don't really have an aggro strategy, consider adding cards such as Land Tax , Smothering Tithe , Norn's Annex , Moat , et cetera. Maybe try to lean into a Proliferate strategy.

Cards such as Academy Rector , Karn Liberated Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon would greatly benefit your neutral game. Consider adding Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Pearl Medallion , Enlightened Tutor and Sword of Truth and Justice for general play as well. DEFINITELY add Thran Dynamo , Mana Crypt , Thran Temporal Gateway , Mana Vault and Metalworker to the deck as your ramp is not very good.

All in all, your concept for this deck seems interesting but lacks focus. I struggle to see how you could make a Superfriends deck on a budget, but keep on trying and you'll get there eventually.

P.S: I forgot to add Scroll Rack .

No. I recommand Lyra Dawnbringer mainly. But you can play Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite as a alternative Commander if your Opponents play heavy Creature/Token Decks.

I think Lyra Dawnbringer is the best choice because, you can play on Lifelink and use Cards like Aetherflux Reservoir !.

SufferFromEDHD if I put Divine Visitation back in it will be to replace Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite . I was thinking of taking her out to help lower the CMC of the deck. Also she can be a pain for me if someone grabs her from me. It effectively wipes my board. Assemble the legion was to slow in my meta. I do like the entrapment manuver suggestion, a lot.
