I think Pollen Lullaby would be more effective than Batwing Brume in mono white turbofog; is the lifeloss worth it? or is the idea just to possibly win via ridiculous alpha swing from the opponent?.... cuz then you can swap those Isolated Chapel s for other lands like Reliquary Tower / Mikokoro, Center of the Sea or even Buried Ruin .
As for some sideboard tech for various matchups I would consider Rebuff the Wicked as a means to protect your Isochron Scepter from Assassin's Trophy and such... Nevermore for combo pieces... Pithing Needle for planswalkers... Oblivion Ring for stray nonland permanants (honestly good enought to consider mainboarding a few copies for planswalkers and other non aggro threats)... Rule of Law for storm.... and obligatory gravyard hate with Grafdigger's Cage

Im a big fan of mid-rangey mono color tribal decks, but here is some advice if you want to make it work more consistently and be generally more successful even in a very casual table top setting:
Curve in modern is king!
If you look at the curve for your deck and the average CMC in general, its very very high and its going to take several turns to even start getting your big angels out. This is an issue because at most you will be playing one threat per turn, and by turn 4 your control opponent will have more than enough mana and cards to stop them from hitting the board, your aggro opponents will have killed you, and faster mid range decks will have set up the board to a point where you are behind the rest of the game.
Solutions: Splash green for ramp ( Llanowar Elves , Birds of Paradise ) or find more cards in the 1 and 3 slots that are defensive. Current build is desperate for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Defensive/tax/solid cards in white you can use would be stuff like Leonin Arbiter , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Thraben Inspector , Doomed Traveler , Student of Warfare .
Interacting with your opponent is key!
Currently the only removal you have in your deck is Ixalan's Binding , which costs a large amount of mana considering it only removes a single target. Lucky for us we are playing white and have alot of great removal. Path to Exile , Fragmentize , Oblivion Ring . If I was playing this deck, my biggest fear would be my opponent would play something like Ensnaring Bridge because i'd only have a 32% chance of drawing Ixalan's Binding by turn 5 and thats spooky!
Hope this helps. tl;dr is I'd lower the average CMC, add more removal and ways to interact with the opponent

Damn that's a lot of LGS over there! That's pretty sick, one of my friends own a beer pub that we can kick back and relax to play some games over there. Not an actual LGS but at least we can drink and play some entertaining games lol.

thank you for the kind words and advice! I did consider the aura enchantments at first too, but decided to go a more pillowforty route. As for the suggestions of upgrades:
I agree that Grasp of Fate is better then Oblivion Ring here! sadly the deck is already getting quite expensive, and i like to keep it just a tiny less expensive right now (I already have O-ring in my collection). Ill keep the card in mind though!
This is definitely better, added!
This deck is already pretty big on tax. I think I want to avoid this card in order to keep the deck just slightly lower in powerlevel for my playgroup
Thank you again for the nice suggestions!

The reason we don't want these is because you don't have removal in your deck and we have no way of protecting Kaalia of the Vast Removing these gives us 17 open slots for removal, protection, and some better creatures
Now some recommendations, Kokusho, the Evening Star He is a really good blocker since you have no ways to sac him blocking is going to be your best bet to kill him, Lathliss, Dragon Queen I don't need to explain this one, Terminate Very good instant speed removal, Dreadbore More removal (also hits planeswalkers so that's a bonus, Iroas, God of Victory Sure you cant cheat him out but who cares look at that ability! Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Cause hes aids, Lightning Greaves We have to protect Bae otherwise she will be shot down on sight Vindicate Great removal, Swiftfoot Boots More protecting of Bae, Strionic Resonator So when Bae attacks we hit her ability with this and get double the triggers so now we put to bois into play Merciless Eviction You need a board wipe, Earthquake A board wipe that only hits your opponents stuff YES PLEASE! Liliana's Contract For the memes, Linvala, Keeper of Silence shes op, Oblivion Ring More removal. Swords to Plowshares Honestly the best white removal in commander, Anguished Unmaking Exile op op.

Against control Carnage Tyrant is legit. It's not a silver bullet because they run both Settle the Wreckage and Terminus to answer it. And for that same reason you're not going to find an unstoppable answer. Id say 1-2 Tyrant in the main, 2-3 Treetop Village/Stirring Wildwood also in the main with 1-2 Choke and 1-2 Sorcerous Spyglass/Pithing Needle in the side. Will improve your Control match up. Your mana base probably can't afford them but a couple Field of Ruin/Ghost Quarter will also help against both Control & Tron.
As it is your sideboard is really weak. I would revise the whole thing. Especially since you're in white. There is no reason at all you shouldn't be running stuff like Stony Silence.
Against Tron. Basically land hate and exile effects with a quick clock.
So a full Path to Exile play set in the main. Soul Tithe, Oblivion Ring, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Stony Silence, Damping Sphere, Aven Mindcensor, Gaddock Teeg (which u have). If you want something that works with your deck I would use Wurmcoil Engine. It dodges Ugin & All Is Dust and if they crack an O-Stone will leave bodies behind.

I don't think Luminarch Ascension is really worth it. It does nothing when it comes into play, and for at least 4 more turns. Sure, it's just a 2 drop and it does provide devotion, but I only really see that card working well in multiplayer.
Mox Amber also seems like a subpar choice, you don't need the mana-fixing, and Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip is the only card that really allows it to ramp you. I'd just get another plains, or possibly a fancier mono-white land like Eiganjo Castle, Mistveil Plains or Emeria, The Sky Ruin.
Your curve is pretty high, so maybe consider Knight of the White Orchid, Mind Stone or Weathered Wayfarer. There's also Endless Horizons and Extraplanar Lens. For the second, maybe consider switching to Snow-Covered Plains.
