Just watch out for Humble

Anticipate, Dragonlord's Perogative, Monastery Loremaster*, and Meditate are all thematic cards. They have decent/strong effects that aren't total garbage, but fit the theme of Taigam being a monk of the Ojutai order.
In a similar fashion are cards like Temple Bell, End Hostilities, Sensei's Divining Top, Humble, and Redirect. Almost all of these cards could be stronger versions of themselves, but I like the monastic feel of them.
*Monastery Loremaster deserves special notice because he serves a few different purposes. Since my deck isn't as heavily Instant/Sorcery focused, I will want cards back that just aren't Instants/Sorceries. Being able to get back my Artifacts or Enchantments is a good thing. In addition, it's another Morph. I really like Quicksilver Dragon, and sometimes the morph might come in handy, especially if I don't usually cast it for the morph, but cast the Loremaster for such, then get removal used on that... or if I ever want to toss in a Willbender, Voidmage Apprentice, or Stratus Dancer.
Ultimately, the primary wincon for the deck is Approach of the Second Sun so I don't mind the deck being weird. Though I'm more likely to win out of dragons or the off chance that Taigam goes in for Commander Damage, but they're ancillary modes so I don't have to run things like Mystical Tutor which would be super boring. Though, potentially getting a rebounded Enlightened Tutor could be fun and would be super thematic.

I've built a very similar deck. Here are some suggestions based on my build.
Dusk / Dawn is (almost) a completely one-sided wrath. I only have 2-3 creatures it can hit in my build. At worst you lose one or two creatures while you wipe all or most of their board. It seems like a definite include and it provides late game card advantage by recurring most of your squad.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion also provides a (mostly) one-sided wrath effect. The great thing is you can play it and "wrath" in one turn and she lives. Also since you killed several of their creatures. It's likely she'll be able to setup to wrath again in a few turns.
Team pumping seems better overall than the targeted variant. Bar the Door, Fortify, and Solidarity all feel that Overrun-esque role. Also Overrun, albeit a sorcery, can punch through those last points of damage ignoring their board state. I don't have it in my build, but it wouldn't hurt.
- Asceticism - protection from targeted removal.
- Conclave's Blessing - game breaking in this deck. It's our Cranial Plating of sorts.
- Castle gives all your defender creatures and those with vigilance a nice pump.
- Sylvan Library should be in every green deck that doesn't have access to blue in my opinion.
- Spidersilk Armor slight pump, but gives everyone reach.

Thinking about removing defenders, I came up with including 4 Sidewinder Sliver + 2/3 (4?) Mirror Entity. With the help of some slivers, the latter may gain flanking (and then be affected by Cavalry Master too), but most of all its activated ability gives additional instances of flanking to knight creatures (plus, it's a useful mana sink since I don't have one yet). I think it could be pretty fun (at best, a creature can have 9 instances of flanking) and give the deck that certain something that now is missing.
