You're also missing Lavinia of the Tenth as a potential commander, who would also have my vote as a casual commander but at the same time can be very disruptive and control-ly. You can build the deck around abusing flicker effects with Detention Sphere, Oblivion Ring, Glimmerpoint Stag, Conjurer's Closet, or Fiend Hunter.

1 year necro FTW.
Also I am confused as to your confusion. Could you please clarify what you don't understand? The process for permanent exile with Brago, King Eternal; Sol Ring; Strionic Resonator; and any one of Fiend Hunter, Angel of Serenity, Oblivion Ring, or Detention Sphere is laid out in the first answer using the angel as the exile outlet.

Fun! I was playing with a similar concept - though using faster blink effects like Cloudshift to take advantage of the stack with cards like Tidehollow Sculler, Fiend Hunter or Banisher Priest, and Mangara of Corondor to exile two cards at the same time. Along the lines of
Tidehollow Sculler ETB trigger
Because it's last in first out, Cloudshift resolves first, flickering back the Tidehollow Sculler. This means that the "Leaves the Battlefield trigger" AND a "Enters the battlefield trigger" are placed on the stack:
tidehollow sculler 2 ETB
tidehollow sculler 1 LTB
tidehollow sculler 1 ETB
The second ETB trigger resolves first, allowing you to exile a card from their hand. Then the LTB trigger resolves but has no target. Then the 1st ETB trigger resolves and exiles a card from their hand permanently.
Blinking shenanigans! +1

@NicolBrolas, your question is from over half a year ago so I hope you subscribed to this.
What you were reading about a card staying in exile does not work for Banishing Light, but does work for Oblivion Ring and Fiend Hunter as well as Angel of Serenity, Detention Sphere, Journey to Nowhere, and Leonin Relic-Warder (just listing mono-white cards). The wording of the latter cards are written such that they ETB and LTB triggers are separate. So, if you make the exiling creature/enchantment leave the battlefield while its ETB ability is on the stack, its LTB ability gets put on top of the stack. Thus, the LTB ability resolves first returning nothing to the battlefield then the ETB ability resolves leaving the permanent/creature in exile.

I believe the below cards don't have enough impact, are situational, or have better alternatives:
- Honor of the Pure
- Intangible Virtue
- Journey to Nowhere
- Cathedral of War
- Encroaching Wastes
- Intrepid Hero
I understand your desire to add some anthem effects for your cat tokens but I believe that an anthem effect on its own, especially on an enchantment, is not worth it - see comments below for caged sun and gauntlet of power.
If you can afford them, or you are playing on MTGO, definitely get yourself a copy of Forcefield and Mana Crypt for some life total protection in case your stuff is removed or you have to attack for value, and a lot of mana on the cheap, respectively. Also as mentioned above, Land Tax is ridiculous.
Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power are some of the few anthem effects I would play, because they also double your mana, which effectively Negates the cost of equipping your stuff. They also add to metalcraft unlike more traditional anthem effects. If I had to play an enchantment anthem, I would play Marshal's Anthem. It is slightly more expensive, but you can usually afford to kick it once, bringing back a fallen comrade (with +1/+1).
Intrepid Hero can probably be removed for something with immediate impact like Fiend Hunter or Banisher Priest, they are also slightly more versatile in that they exile creatures of any size. Fiend Hunter is best with a sacrifice outlet and creature recursion like Reveillark and Karmic Guide. On that note, Reveillark and Karmic Guide are some of the best white creatures of all time, run them.
That's enough for now, soz for essay, was really bored at work.

The thing about O-ring though is that because of the wording as 2 effects you actually can use it to perma exile things. The first ruling on O-ring is a bit confusing but using the stack you can cast O-ring target someone else's
I sat down to really figure out the stack when someone I was playing with combo'd Whip of Erebos with Obzedat to make one hell of a cockroach.
But looking over you're deck again there's less room for it. A similar combo that could produce similar results though is Fiend Hunter and your Deadeye Navigator or Nephalia Smuggler but it would only work on creatures

Athreos becomes quite a powerful beater really easily thanks to the plethora of creatures with in their cost. It is also quite useful to keep wraths off of me (remember, I can Vial in Athreos in response to a wrath), which I do believe are going to be more prevalent now that Twin and combo-control have given way to hard control and that BG/x decks changing up their removal base to account for a more aggro heavy format. Oh, and Tron too.
The reasons for the others is that without Twin, there's no real need for Voice of Resurgence. Regular control can be out-done with my recursion, CoCo and Vial, and I still don't see delver coming up too much (will have to wait and see). I rarely ever finish off an opponent with Voice anyways. It just either gets pathed or chumped.
Thalia I considered more important as something to mainboard slow down Tron, and hate on affinity, RdW and infect which I believe are all going to become more prevalent. Slowing down infect so I can start disrupting them with Fiend Hunters and Flickerwisps is quite important.
As for Sun Titan ... I'm not too sure I actually need him as I don't expect BG/x to gain any more meta share. If that is the case I could actually bring back in Voice as a 3 of. Shall update the changes..
