Seal of Cleansing Discussion

Ok so I have a lot of suggestions that would make this deck more competitive because its pretty far off at the moment. I'll go by each section.
First artifacts, you should take out everything you have except for Sol Ring and Sensei's Divining Top. Yes even Chromatic Lantern, especially Chromatic Lantern. Spending 3 mana on a rock that only produces 1 mana is too much of a tempo loss in a competitive game and its effect is unnecessary which I will explain when I talk about lands. Instead add some fast mana acceleration. Cards like Mox Opal, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Dimir Signet, Azorius Signet, and Orzhov Signet. You should strive to run as much of that ramp package as you can afford.
Second lands, with a solid land base you should have no need for a card like Chromatic Lantern even in Sen Triplets. Lands like Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, Gemstone Caverns, Gemstone Mine and Command Tower along with Mox Diamond and Mox Opal should be able to provide all the green or red mana you should ever need in a game. You also are running far far too mana lands. With a decent ramp package running anywhere from 29-34 lands should be more than enough.
Third instants, you are running a lot of control style interaction with counterspells and one-off removal which is sort of fine but a lot of it is simply not viable in a competitive setting. Cryptic Command is super versitile but 4 mana as a response is brutal. Needing to leave up 4 mana for an answer will cause you to not be able to play anything in the early game. There are plenty of 1 and 2 mana counterspells that you should run instead. Disallow and Render Silent have the same problem, its just too expensive on turn 2 or 3 when you are trying to play a signet or talisman to ramp you should be able to have mana for an answer as well. Pull from Tomorrow and Flash seem like super weird choices and IDK why you are running Orim's Chant and not Silence.
Fourth sorceries, the only thing here that i notice is that the triple white kind of makes it unplayable most of the time even when you do have the condition met. With all the other creature wipes I would cut it. Also no Toxic Deluge? Unburial Rites is also way expensive when you have reanimation effects like Exhume, Dance of the Dead, and Necromancy.
Fifth creatures, no this one is messy. you have WAY too many reanimation targets, you need to cut some fatties. In competitive re-animator you only need like 1-3 fatties because they should be so powerful that once they are reanimated they just win you the game essentially. You do not want to have one in your hand ever in an ideal world so you really want to limit the number of reanimation targets in the deck. The only ones i see that are worth running are Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. You could add an eldrazi titan if you wanted as well. The others are simply weak in comparison.
Those are my thoughts on the cards you are currently running. Now for the second awkward part of this deck. The majority of your card advantage I notice is over time. You have a lot of engines like Phyrexian Arena and Rhystic Study and not many 1 off draw spells like Night's Whisper. That is fine in a stacks strategy when you can slow the game down enough to get the value form them but you arn't really running any stacks effects. This deck should probably run cards like Aven Mindcensor, Sphere of Resistance, Torpor Orb, Cursed Totem, Pithing Needle, Aura of Silence, Seal of Cleansing, Nihil Spellbomb, Tormod's Crypt, Phyrexian Revoker, Blind Obedience. The problem is there arn't that many hard stacks cards that don't hurt your gameplan as much as everyone else. The deck needs a lot of cleaning up and some cohesiveness in its strategy to be considered competitive.

I like that this deck is so artifact centric, but you're somewhat missing the point of Hanna's strength. Artifacts and enchantments that can bury themselves have high value in your deck, you can quite easily sac them and reanimated in the same, at least by midgame that is.
Aura of Silence, Mindslaver, Burnished Hart, Seal of Cleansing, Oblivion Stone, there are multitude of other WU and colorless artifacts and enchantments that do cool things you can keep recurring. It's a really matter of what kind of deck you want your reanimated cards to play as.
Hope this points you in some fun directions.

I'd remove Helix Pinnacle, as you don't run any counter doublers, proliferates, and at most (if you have all your lands in play) you can only get 36 counters a turn, which is a waste of mana, Seal of Cleansing because its a worst Aura of Silence, and since you run Primeval Bounty replace Shamanic Revelation with Inspiring Call. Also, maybe replace Collective Blessing with Beastmaster Ascension?
Also, says you got 2 Mirari's Wake... gotta fix that....

I have done this already with great effect running Thalia, Heretic Cathar. Most white enchantments carry brutal control options that rival if not over power blue control in the commander metas I have seen. Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Solemnity, Spirit Mantle, Land Tax, Martyr's Bond, Opalescence, Aura of Silence, Parallax Wave, Worship, Seal of Cleansing, Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Academy Rector, Replenish, and I could go on.

Alrighty then. For starters I think you are too concerned with mana fixing. In my experience in playing many games of commander what you have is straight overkill. So I would ditch the panoramas and the Warped Landscape, the Transguild Promenade, Shimmering Grotto, Rupture Spire, the Manalith, and Selesnya Keyrune. You really won't need them. I would replace the lands with basics/ and lands like Fortified Village,Canopy Vista, Temple of Plenty, Temple Garden, Selesnya Guildgate. And then for the Manalith and Keyrune drop them for Kodama's Reach and some other enchantments that I will mention below. You will probably want to run as few artifacts as possible for an enchantress build also. I say this because of one of the recommendations that I have. And now onto the card recommendations
First off for the 11 missing cards I will recommend the following as options (emphasis on options, some of these are pricey which is why so many options): Solitary Confinement, Sylvan Library, Exploration, Open the Vaults, Replenish, Green Sun's Zenith, Worship, Ajani's Chosen, Enlightened Tutor, Eternal Witness, Commune with the Gods, Blind Obedience, Authority of the Consuls, Eladamri's Call, Abundant Growth, Utopia Sprawl, Witchbane Orb , Ground Seal, Grand Abolisher, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Heliod, God of the Sun, Seal of Cleansing, Kismet, Soul Snare, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Courser of Kruphix, Prison Term, Starfield of Nyx, opalessence, Overgrowth, and lastly Stony Silence. Stony Silence is a powerful card that excels in commander. Although at the cost of your artifacts activations. I personally like it for an enchantress build. And remember I am not saying that these are end all be all cards but they are in my experience very useful. And since you have options you can just pick and choose what you like and don't like
I also have some ideas for things you should cut from the deck. Things like Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, yeah she's cool and all but she doesn't really fit well with the deck and she can die easily and that can be a hassle. Another card which I would cut is White Sun's Zenith, it takes a lot of mana just for some kitty cats and I it does not perform that well in general. Another card I feel is under performing is Archetype of Endurance, personally Asceticism is better if you are concerned about that. And lastly I feel torn about Celestial Archon. I feel like he has potential but I am uncertain.
Ok that is all I have to say! I think anyways... regardless take some time and think about what it is you want to do with what I have recommended. Of course as always the final choice is yours. Please tell me your thoughts after you have mulled it over!

I have a few suggestions to give this deck some more oomph. For more removal I'd recommend; Path to Exile, Seal of Cleansing, Abolish, Return to Dust, Tariff, Mass Calcify, Fell the Mighty, Harsh Mercy, Cast Out, Grasp of Fate, and World Queller.
A fun thing to note about your commander is that he has first strike. To exploit this you could give him deathtouch through, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, and Gorgon's Head. If you equip any of these three to your commander and you have three additional creatures attacking you can force your opponent to block your commander with three of their biggest creatures, and since your commander has first strike and death touch the opponent's creatures end up dying while your commander lives.
