I think you're enchantment-heavy enough that you could justify running a set of Grim Guardian - he provides an arguably better defense (and is a little easier to cast!) than Vectic Dominator.

-37 lands in a bit short for EDH : advice is 40 to avoid issue plus aprox 10 carads for card advantage. In your setup, i would recommand more creature cards that ramp lands and that you can sac like Yavimaya Elder and Wood ElvesExplore cards migth also be very usefull to pull out more lands from the deck and filling your Graveyard.Deadeye Tracker, Jadelight Ranger, Merfolk Branchwalker, Path of Discovery, Tomb Robber

Cards to cut :Grim Guardian , Heliod's Emissary, Leafcrown Dryad : not impactfull enoughHermit of the Natterknolls  Flip : Not an enchantement, does not do a lot for the deck

Sheoldred, Whispering One & Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger : Those guys are dangerous, Not sure if your deck can manage to show them in play or in the graveyard and survive the focus tou'll get. I personally stoped playing them for this reason.

Bear Umbra, Curse of Bounty -> What do you do with the untaps ???

Exsanguinate, Genesis Wave, Profane Command -> You dont have mana to make those game-ending, would replace with fixed cost spell or creatures

Overwhelming Stampede -> Quite situationnal, Craterhoof will do a better job beeing a creature you can bring back. If you are looking for a lethal finished, Triumph of the Hordes is more effective

Candidate to add :

Aegis of the Gods

Celestial Archon

Doomwake Giant

Skybind -> retrigger ETB

Strength from the Fallen

Celestial Ancient

Helm of the Gods

Punishment

Rofellos's Gift

Starfield of Nyx

A W/B enchantment Pauper deck with Grim Guardian always appealed to me, so this list is pretty cool. A couple things:

Spiteful Returned is not pauper-legal. It has only been printed at uncommon. I'd probably replace with Hopeful Eidolon or Baleful Eidolon.

Pillory of the Sleepless is much stronger than Stab Wound. You want to maximize life drain while also removing the creature, which it executes far better than SW.

Including a copy or two of Unmake to the sideboard is strong backup removal in case your opponents are heavy on enchantment hate and your O-Rings no longer work.

I really like the maelstrom cards as they add some flavor and kill factor, but they don't necessarily fit the deck besides being 5 color.

Crystal Chimes seems like an obvious run for the long play. Again, I don't understand why enchantments are so naturally hard to deal with.

Argothian Enchantress and Enchantress's Presence seem like an obvious run if you plan on having green as a final color.

Grim Guardian , Starfield of Nyx and Sphere of Safety seem like good additions depending on the level of aggro you want to run, though don't necessarily go with the "curse" theme.

Angelic Renewal, Blind Obedience, Thopter Arrest, Oblivion Ring, Serra's Hymn, Serra's Liturgy, Grim Guardian, Underworld Coinsmith, y High Ground son bastante baratas y pueden ser divertidos para probar aqui. (Disculpame por que no le muestran los accentos aqui.)

Feliz jugar!

Constellation. It was such a good idea for a mechanic that just doesn't have enough support to be played - basically only Doomwake Giant and Eidolon of Blossoms were really good, with a handful of ok secondaries like Grim Guardian and Agent of Erebos.
