You could go bant angels with Jenara, Asura of War as your commander. This gives you access to Empyrial Archangel who is just outright dumb with Avacyn, Angel of Hope. You also get card advantage which helps (selesnya is not known for card advantage).

Sorry for the triple post but you also might want to play two copies of Empyrial Archangel, Godsire and Hellkite Overlord because currently drawing one of them will really screw everything up :p

My question in regards to this deck is why Arcades, the Strategist instead of another bant commander such as Derevi, Empyrial Tactician? Arcades synergizes with defender cards. Of which you have only 1, which is Dragon Throne of Tarkir.

If you want to use Arcades, I recommend more defender cards such as: Tree of Redemption, Ageless Sentinels, Wall of Blossoms, Colossus of Akros, Golden Guardian  Flip, Hornet Nest, Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo, Thing in the Ice  Flip, Sylvan Caryatid, Wall of Reverence, Amaranthine Wall, Assault Formation, Carven Caryatid, Dazzling Ramparts, Gomazoa, Guard Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Just to name a few.

I also recommend as many cards that prevent your opponents from attacking you as possible: Windborn Muse, Norn's Annex, etc.

As well as cards like Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Empyrial Archangel, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Good luck to you!

I feel like there needs to be more of an abrupt transition into the 'late game' mode. Cards like Dramatic Entrance with (Empyrial Archangel/Sigarda, Host of Herons/Sigarda, Heron's Grace), possibly even something like Pentad Prism, as at the moment it feels like the deck misses the 'window' created by the tax effects to make that game-winning play.

On the same note as Palisade Giant, Beacon of Destiny, General's Regalia, Oracle's Attendants, Pariah, Pariah's Shield, and Empyrial Archangel. Regalia and the Pariahs are great with indestructible creatures, so maybe have an indestructible commander

Also, Delaying Shield seems really good here with a lich on the battlefield. They only trigger when you are dealt damage, not when you lose life, so you can't be killed through their triggers.

I think you need solid disruption pieces to reanimate that can end the game. Right now, you are just slightly cheating on the mana of some of those - elesh gets discounted by 2 whole mana and against most decks, does nothing to end the game.

You need solid pieces that are resitant to removal - the heap ones I can think of are Inkwell Leviathan and Empyrial Archangel and Sundering Titan. Reanimate those and you are good to go.
