Also, Isochron Scepter+Fog or Holy Day or especially Dawn Charm is repeatable. If they don't have artifact removal, they quit.

richardsy920, someone who pilots a deck dedicated almost exclusively to defense is usually said to be running a "pillow-fort" deck or a "turbo-fog" deck.

Pillow-fort decks are known for their tax effects on attacking creatures such as Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Sphere of Safety, Meekstone, Crawlspace and the like, and may contain harsh control or "stax" elements like Smokestack or Winter Orb. These are usually enchantment- and artifact-heavy decks with some hatebear creatures that add taxing effects.

Turbo-fog decks are know for running multiple fog effects such as Fog, Darkness, Holy Day, and the like to prevent combat damage during opponents' turns. These are usually instant-heavy decks with ways to recast cards from the graveyard or return them to hand.

Defensive decks typically lock down the board state or prevent others from playing fair magic while they search up win cons, which might be anything.

It's also possible to play defensively or reactively when you need to hold up mana to deal with opponents' plans regardless of what kind of deck you pilot.

Perhaps the simplest way to make it, is to build a U/W control deck with a few more 1-2 cmc instant than usual, and add in 3 or 4 scepters. Anything becomes a functional lock on a scepter - Remand, Path to Exile, Holy Day...

To clarify a bit Artifacts also follow the rules of colour identity. Godsend or Blinding Souleater would be legal with your commander--the former has a White color identity as a component of its mana cost, and the latter as a component of its activated ability. Contrarily Courier's Capsule and Evolution Vat would not be legal, as they do not have White colour identities.

I run Sigil of the Empty Throne in a deck that is 43% enchantments--it has been a powerful finisher in that deck, but the deck's construction is absurdly skewed toward enchantments. I am not sure it would work well in most other decks, but wanted to mention it as you wanted an angelic theme.

Paradox Engine + Isochron Scepter allows for some infinite combos if you are running a large number of mana rocks. You can use it for casting Holy Day on each opponents' turn in the early game, and eventually use to pump out infinite mana, for cards such as Entreat the Angels (which fits the angel host theme you said you wanted).

Some other cards to consider:

  • Mesa Enchantress - card advantage
  • Lightmine Field - strong pillowfort card, particularly against wide decks. However, if your win condition involves attacking with lots of creatures, you might want to forgo this one.
  • Darksteel Mutation - removes an enemy commander without giving the opponent an option to return the target to the command zone.
  • Consulate Crackdown - remove their mana rocks, and any remaining threat your opponents might be.

VegaBoralis257 Banding is a bit of a pain to explain, but it's worth it IMO since making a token at instant speed with banding specifically can counter an aggressive trampler. (that's also the reason for Defensive Formation) I admit it's also because I absolutely love the mechanic but it's incredibly useful as an instant-speed fog effect, that also has the upside of creating a dude if need be. On the opposite note, Holy Day was trending a little over 0.30$ last I checked, but now it's around .22$ so I'm going to swap those. Raise the Alarm is going to be put in to replace Brilliant Halo as well.
