"Absolute garbage deck with little to no chance of winning" - well not with that attitude! I kid, but in all seriousness, it sounds like you're having a tough time with your deck. I guess it'd be safe to assume you ha ve no reliable wincons. So, we have two options here - you switch commanders, or try and figure out something what can enable you to win. I'll give you my thoughts on each option:

Switching commanders: So, you have a commander that's an angel. To my surprise, she's the only WB angel there is. Go figure. So every other option is non-angel...but you do have some very interesting choices.

Mind you, I didn't list all of the cards because IMO, these are probably the more popular choices and the most expensive (sorry!). The idea behind choosing a commander is choosing a creature that speaks to you. Something you like about the way they play, what they embody stuff like that. If you have any thoughts regarding any of the previously mentioned cards, let me know and we can try to build a deck that's more centered around it.

Figure out something - so if we stick with Selenia, Dark Angel as our commander I think the most reliable way to get her to win is to voltron her up. Basically, we'd just rely mostly on just her winning us the game. So we would use cards like:

Just to name a few. The idea would be that your commander would be so well equipped that she'd be nigh impossible to deal with for hte rest of the table. Additionally, you'd have to have a means of protecting yourself. Cards like:

Just to name a few. But the idea is that you build up a defense while your opponents have to deal with your commander who will stand vigil in front of the wall you build. As you constantly equip and build her up, she becomes a legitmate threat on the board. Of course, there are other creatures that are better suited to this strategy, but given what she has this is the best I can come up with. I'm sure there are smarter people out there that would have better ideas though. Don't give up!

Seems like your meta doesn't play Force of Will so I would suggest some fast combo deck. For example storm.

Rituals 18
4 Rite of Flame
3 Seething Song
4 Dark Ritual
3Cabal Ritual
4 Helm of Awakening

Cantrips 16
4 Gitaxian Probe
4 Manamorphose
4 Chromatic Sphere
4 Chromatic Star

Payoff 8
4 Dark Petition
1 Ad Nauseam
1 Tendrils of Agony
1 Past in Flames
1 Empty the Warrens

Lands 18
4 Blackcleave Cliffs
4 Gemstone Mine
6 Swamp
4 Mountain

Side 15
4 Engineered Plague
4 Mindbreak Trap
4 Chancellor of the Annex
3 Cabal Therapy

This might fit your budget, check it out from MCM. It's combo rather than control or midrange. Making midrange or control deck takes little more time to brew and I might post it later. One more question; are storm decks mainly ANT or TES in your meta?

you should put in some changelings like Amoeboid Changeling

they're bears as well as everything else

they can also turn everything into a nothing, such as to counter Engineered Plague

I would definitely run some graveyard hate for decks like Reanimator, Storm and Dredge in the form of Relic of Progenitus, Grafdigger's Cage or Tormod's Crypt. I think you need 3-4 pieces of graveyard hate.

I personally would also run 2x Back to Basics to punish greedy mana bases like Eldrazi, Lands, Mud, Bug etc. Just be aware that you play it when it does not hurt yourself too much.

I also think that you want 2-3 Dismembers in your sideboard against Tarmogoyf, Gurmag Angler, Stoneforge Mystic or any creature that might prevent you from getting damage through in the matchups, where your islandwalk is irrelevant. They are also very useful against Death & Taxes, which is one of Merfolk bad matchups.

You can also run Echoing Truth against decks that play annoying enchantments/artifacts like Meekstone, Ensnaring Bridge, Moat, Engineered Plague. It is also useful against tokens from Empty the Warrens, Monastery Mentor tokens, Young Pyromancer tokens and Entreat the Angels tokens.

Against Death & Taxes and Stoneblade decks, you could add 1x Manriki-Gusari to the sideboard to destroy their equipments. You can easily find it by copying their Stoneforge Mystic with your Phantasmal Image.

Many sideboards also run some additional counterspells and here there many available options.One of these options is Flusterstorm, which is good at winning counterwars and which is also good against combo decks like Storm and Reanimator.
You can also use counter spells like Negate, Swan Song or Spell Pierce. Personally I would not run 1 mana counterspell due to Chalice of the Void other the Flusterstorm, where the copies does not get countered by Chalice of the Void.

Other that these, you have some flexspots which can anything you need like: Pithing Needle which can name a ton stuff like Sensei's Divining Top, Wirewood Symbiote, Stoneforge Mystic, Grindstone, Sneak Attack etc.

Tidebinder Mage which is good against Deathrite Shaman, Tarmogoyf and elves.

Submerge which is a free bouncespell against decks with forest lands. It is sometimes even a removal spell, if you use it, when they use their fetchlands.

I hope this is helpful for you. :)

Engineered Plague works, I missed that one. Nice work, Bovine073.

Engineered Plague.

Still not sure how this allows us to cast spells, though. (Same applies for Mirror+Night of Souls, and the Archetype/Spotlight).

Boseiju, Who Shelters All? Wait, does't Teferi make it impossible to cast any spells because we are on your end step? (Ah, nevermind, we can kill him with Engineered Plague).

I think Knowledge Pool allows a better lock than erayo, because it doesn't counter spells.
