I totally get where you are coming from with .
However, because they are so hated, I try to limit the amount of Counters I have in my EDH decks.
They don't seem to be as hated.
I made an Artifact deck with that philosophy that you can check out here: Factual
It has a "weak" Commander that people hardly ever target because they don't see her doing much. She helps me draw into what I need.
There is nothing much threatening in the early stages of the game. The deck slowly grows into its power plays, and can win quite handily in the later game.
That seems to fly well with most groups. As Magic players, and particularly EDH players, we most often want to play a game with quite a few turns, not a Turn 2 whitewash.
I do commend you on your awareness of the power of your play group, and your willingness to adapt to meet it.
There's nothing worse than being THAT person that nobody wants to play.

Cost increases and decreases are not applied in any particular order, but are rather totaled up and the net value is applied instead. So in this case the cost would be modified by 3 - 1 = 2 meaning your Path to Exile will cost 2W.

I control Pearl Medallion and my opponent controls a Defense Grid. I want to cast Path to Exile on the opponent's turn. What should I play for it? Does my opponent choose the order of the abilities? Because if the Grid works first I can pay 3. If the Medallion does, I pay 4.

The other thing is you can cut Fact or Fiction and Merchant Scroll. You already have enough tutors and Zur gives you access to Necropotence. ANd you don't need Trinket Mage, you only have mana rocks as targets for him. Also, Darksteel Ingot is too slow here.
Unless you're coming up against a lot of storm decks or decks with haste, Blind Obedience feels to ineffective here.

Wait. Of course it wouldn't. duh. But why the Shizo, Death's Storehouse? you don't have any legendary creatures in your deck, so an extra Swamp would just be better (Because of Wasteland and Path to Exile, mostly.)

You sure you want to use Selesnya Sanctuary as your duel land? It is a little clunky. I only use the guild lands in decks with lots of one drops so I can get use from a land before I send it back to my hand. The average converted mana cost of your cards is 3.56, so I would consider a different option I know the really good ones are very expensive, but there are some decent options that are a little cheaper, but wont set you back.
It important to remember too that the guild lands don't give you more mana than you would normally have on turn 3, but just you get it from 2 lands instead of 1. This has advantages and disadvantages.
Also, I'm not sure if it is because of the theme or not, but there are some excellent options for exile spells better than Angelic Purge. I recommend Path to Exile because you can activate Knight of the White Orchid's ability easier if the enemy has more land too.

Archangel of Thune would be the single best thing you could add to this deck.
Your commander makes Deathpact Angel even more durable and tricky. True Conviction is almost always a wincon and actually stacks with the Noble Purpose and consider adding Exalted Angel (Neither are considered Lifelink when applying the abilities).
Well of Lost Dreams would help card draw immensely.
Also consider cutting some of the subpar lifegain and auras like Angel's Mercy for removal like Path to Exile/Swords to Plowshares/Return to Dust/Aura of Silence and upgrading your current removal. For example instead of Oblivion Strike a Gild. Or moving your removal onto creatures like Angel of Despair and Angel of Serenity.
All in all though you need to either improve the card draw/ramp or lower the CMC for this one.
