Write a longer description. A big long description helps other people who want to give advice (like me) see your reasoning for certain card choices or even for the archetype. It also makes you think out your combos and your reasoning for each card. If you look at my decks, none of them have a description shorter than about a paragraph.
I think the midrange aspect of this deck could be dropped, and you could turn this into a full combo deck. If you do that, add Heliod, Sun-Crowned (you should do that anyway, he's a beast), probably a few Ajani's Pridemate s, the rest of the Healer's Hawk s, and some other things for lifegain. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord isn't a bad idea at all either.
Keeping it as it is, Hushbringer belongs in the sideboard, make your curve bigger (if you're playing midrange, you don't want to kill yourself with things like Cry of the Carnarium or Shatter the Sky , and cut... Pretty much all your planeswalkers (except maybe Kaya, Orzhov Usurper ).

I have a few suggestions. First, I would definitely recommend Alseid of Life's Bounty . It's a lifelink body that you can also use to give protection to force attacks through. Hushbringer is also nice as it stops etb and death abilities, has flying, and lifelink already. This can let it be a good target to trigger Heliod, but it also is a non-bo with daxos and impassioned orator. Heliod's Intervention would be good to deal with artifacts and enchantments, and can give life in a pinch. Angel of Vitality makes you gain an extra life each time you gain life and get to be a 4/4, which can be relevant. Shatter the Sky is a great card with gideon, as you keep two creatures, draw a card, and wipe, but it can be dangerous. As for cuts, haazda marshal is too inconsistent, and will generally die when it attacks. Grateful apparition is a pretty good interaction, but can also be underwhelming if you don't get an engine going. Finally, good luck in mono white. I tried and never got too far, but I may try again with the new set.

Pretty sure it was just a miscommunication. Thanks for clarifying.
You’re right about the work arounds, though. I personally don’t think the situation you mentioned is enough of an issue to need something like Melira even though she could be an answer to that situation. Personally if I didn’t have removal I’d just pivot to a different combo line that didn’t involve counters. Our Hulk pile could just win in that case. Hushbringer and Torpor Orb do more to hurt the deck than anything.

It'd probably make it trickier to play a couple of the cards on your list, but when this commander was spoiled I immediately thought of Hushbringer . That combined with Kunoros would probably be especially detrimental to a great deal of aristocrat decks.

Didn't get any games in this weekend, plus trying to make a plan for Thassa's Oracle , not going to be able to keep Red Elemental Blast or Pyroblast out anymore with Flash and Protean Hulk T1/T2 now. Not sure I'm ready for the stax of Hushbringer . Abeyance or Silence don't seem to do anything. Praetor's Grasp to high CMC for me, been happy with Thoughtseize . Angel's Grace and Ad Nauseam back in? Burnout probably has to go in, need 3 spots. I'm not even sure if an efficient instant draw spell to target the opponent would be useful, if one existed.
Necromancy works with Worldgorger Dragon and Leonin Relic-Warder , but I have Dance of the Dead in temporarily testing it. I also have Corpse Dance in testing with Dockside Extortionist . Deciding if Dockside Extortionist is good enough on own without the Infinite interaction with Corpse Dance , if the combo is viable (i don't think so, still needs sac outlet), or whether Dockside Extortionist is just a little too slow and frees up 2 slots. No room for Shallow Grave ATM, need to find the above interaction slots as well.
Need to find a way to win on T2 consistently as well, might have to keep increasing my T1 win draw probability, and T2 and sacrifice T3-T5 to try and get there faster. Changes are costing me efficiency on Diabolic Intent , will not be good if I lose that. Mox Opal cheap now, but the probabilities numbers still don't make sense to contribute to enough T1 wins vs. T1 dead draws. Wishclaw Talisman could help with good artifact count.
Angel of Despair may come out for the instant since she stops Show and Tell + Omniscience but not Thassa's Oracle . Might be her time. Balefire Dragon , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , move away from a damage line Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . Have about 12 cards on my potential cut list anyways, just have to decide how to stop the fish. Other than the efficiency of The Gitrog Monster , all the top commanders are , they need to stop printing OP cards, but let's ban CMC9 Iona, Shield of Emeria because it's no fun, but let's make win on T1 more consistently, just such strange thinking IMHO.
Will keep you posted on how things go.

Aren’t we focusing too much on Flash and Hulk instead of building to stop fast combo decks in general? Flash Hulk is quite hard to stop if your meta isn’t heavy on stax/stax pieces. In my limited experience, cards like Aven Mindcensor , Hushbringer , Cursed Totem and even Blood and Magus of the Moon can be quite problematic even to non-Hulk combo decks. I’m quite sure a healthy meta would at least have one or two stax decks that run these cards. I always have fun playing against these archetypes since they force me to play around the said cards. Point is, it’s still a game of archetypes. With the meta generally being in favor of combo decks, why not just lean towards archetypes that match up well against them?
