Some card Suggestions for you
- -Breath of Fury This, Sidar and a haste source like Lightning Greaves ends the game.
- Ohran Viper Draw and destroy
- Spawnwrithe If you have Kondo out it can double each combat phase.
- Hanweir Battlements haste or meld

I have run my Arcades deck several times and have learned a few things. I have taken Panharmonicon out of my deck. It is an extremely good card with Arcades draw mechanic, but I will warn you, unless you have several ways to give yourself no maximum hand size, you will quickly be discarding a lot of cards. I found that I draw more than enough without it so it becomes a wasted turn to play it and a mechanic you really don't need.
Also, I would get rid of some specialty cards you have unless you are willing to commit more that the strategy. This would include Doorkeeper and Laboratory Mechanic.
Also, high mana cards are actually a big hindrance in the deck. I would take out Oathsworn Giant. I took it out as for 6 mana, in the later turns, +2 and vigilance is a very little difference when there is so much more powerful things you could be doing. Also, Meishin is not as powerful as you think when there are so much better and cheaper one sided board wipes for wall decks. I would add Retribution of the Meek as well as Wave of Reckoning.
Take a look at my deck which I have run several times and always performs well. This deck turns out to be a quick aggro deck so keeping your mana curve a little lower and making sure you ramp out if very important. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/trumps-walls-gonna-get-you/

Definitely using this deck for my Alesha inspiration!
Have you considered Pia and Kiran Nalaar over Ponyback Brigade to lower the curve a bit? Also, Leonin Relic-Warder over Soltari Visionary or Duergar Hedge-Mage to pull the Fiend Hunter and Tidehollow Sculler trick on artifacts and enchantments?
I noticed in your write up you mentioned you were considering Wrath of God or Merciless Eviction. Have you considered Retribution of the Meek or Austere Command? Both of these give you a little more flexibility over what dies.

lickitypikity: The issue was that it wasn't pulling its weight outside of those circumstances, TBH. Not to mention that, as a 4-drop, it conflicts with my commander's spot on the mana curve. It was between cutting that and Hero of Bladehold, but 1) I like the Battle Cry on that, to push some extra damage and 2) Hero of Bladehold is a pet card of mine ;)
KingZamiel: Almost exactly my thoughts on the matter! :) Divine Visitation and Plaguecrafter got added, but I've been considering Dawn of Hope and the two conditional board wipes. I think I'd rather run Retribution of the Meek over Citywide Bust as a general thing, and I'm not running that because it hits too many of my cards. I could see the argument for Ritual of Soot, but Consume the Meek is only okay because it's an instant so I'm not really convinced here. And I agree, I'm really hoping for some good Orzhov stuff from Ravnica Allegiances!! :) Can't wait...

RikuMurasaki, you have no idea how badly I wish I could find a way to put it onto this list! It did a lot of amazing things for my Etali deck on my YouTube channel, but I think that might have more to do with how it often times would clear the way for Etali, Primal Storm to attack.
In your opinion, would it make sense to make a list of cards that hose indestructible or a list of cards that can wipe away all planeswalkers? To me, both of those sound way to situational.
When it comes to the math of it, because EDHREC says that it is way more common for a 6-toughness creature to be played than a 5-toughness creature to be played, if I am trying to set the threshold of damage to a non-arbitrary amount, it has to be set to 6. Thanks for the suggestion though!
Raphstow, unfortunately, as per the fourth point of what is excluded from the list, Harsh Mercy has the same problem as Divine Reckoning in that neither card can wipe away the scariest creature from the board. In mono white, some other powerful board wipes that can be played for 3 mana or less include Planar Collapse, Citywide Bust, Retribution of the Meek, Slaughter the Strong, and Hour of Revelation (if there are 10 or more nonlands on the battlefield). With these available, I don't think it's worth modifying that rule to include a card I think will not do enough in enough situations. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Already have Marble Titan and Dusk // Dawn in the deck, but I'll try to get my hands on a Fell the Mighty. Retribution of the Meek might be a little out of my price range for what it is. Meekstone I'll definately add.

Shield Sphere should definitely get in here.
Also, Tree of Redemption?
