The eldrazi theme sounds very nice. To add, I am also building a deck with Gisela and Bruna. I have found Geist of Saint Traft to fit very much in the theme as the commander.
Definitely run Thalia's Lancers if you're using one of the angels as your commander.

Geist of Saint Traft is arguably the best spirit ever printed. I'm not sure what its price point is at now or if it fits your budget but if you can fit it you should try it :)

I like this list! You had quite a few cards I hadn’t thought of, but definitely want to use.
A couple of ideas you may or may not like:
Geist of Saint Traft seems a little stronger than the Blessed Spirits to me, and has hexproof as a bonus.
I also like Birds of Paradise , since you can use it for mana and still have a flyer to swing with if you use Estrid.

First of all, excuse my english. Now that ultra aggressive graveyard strategies are gone (the remaining ones will probably loose a turn) combos don't have to be so fast, so we can expect to see combos like Urza, Saheeli copycat, Devoted druid, Primeval Titans... Plus Stoneforge Mystic is a bad card against combo by itself, so Tron and various combo decks are happy about this changes. Tron's most favorable match-up is probably midrange, and yeah it's hard to beat them, but to me, as a midrange player there is two possible choices : either drop the tron matchup and save your deck for every other MU (that's dangerous right now) or fight it hard. I can be wrong but to me the best two type of deck for sfm are UWx and BWx because you have either reactive counterspells or proactive discard spells. With your deck you don't have that many counterspells and no discard so the best option with that kind of deck is probably hate cards. Prevent fetching effects, increase their mana cost and win that tempo battle with the help of Spell Queller .
Strictly 3cmc aggressive creatures like Mirran Crusader is probably overkill or underperforming. I think you better have a split with Geist of Saint Traft in that slot. It is a bit less damages but it dodges lightning bolt. Value cards are probably better if the format warps into grindy games. I do like Knight of the Reliquary or Tireless Tracker more than Mirran Crusader . Even if KotR is probably too slow for tron, it allows you to fetch for Field of Ruin turn 3 and turn 4 to ruin its plan.
And now for the swords, I understand the plan with Mirran Crusader with Sword of War and Peace for a turn 4 kill but don't the Sword of Fire and Ice do more of less the same job ? For the life gain you better have Batterskull than that. To me Sword of Feast and Famine is an easy include here. It allows you to detap your land to save for some Spell Queller shenanigans and is hard value against combo and control.
I played WB Stoneblade in legacy until the Deathrite Shaman ban and now am excited about a modern version. I will start by testing 4 Stoneforge Mystic with Sword of Fire and Ice , Sword of Feast and Famine and a Batterskull .

Geist of Saint Traft is a low-cmc that will generate a lot of boardstate pressure. Mindshrieker is lackluster and underwhelming. While you generate mana with your instant and sorceries, there are better skills and abilities to consider. Bident of Thassa also seems on point.

The Azorius deck I have is Geist of Saint Traft aura voltron which I find to be pretty fun.
