seiseises on Casual White Angels

Ahhh great to see a big army of angels, so +1 just for that!

That said, I think you should lower your average CMC a bit, since twelve 7+ drops can be problematic even in casual games (and almost half of your deck costs 5 or more to play anyway). As much as I love all those huge-ass angels, maybe you could replace some of them with cheap but powerful 4-5 drops like Battlegrace Angel (lifelink), Angel of Jubilation (lord + anti-black) or Seraph of the Sword, or if you have some more money available, then you have many more to choose from like Archangel of Tithes (combat control), Shalai, Voice of Plenty (hexproof for everyone), Restoration Angel (for re-triggering enter the battlefield effects, including Seraph Sanctuary), or the golden trio of lifelink angels: Baneslayer Angel, Archangel of Thune and Gisela, the Broken Blade.

As more concrete suggestions, I think Seraph of the Sword is better than both Serra Avenger (since you can't play her until turn 4 anyway) and Guardian of the Gateless. Also I would swap Angelic Arbiter for Archangel of Tithes or Battlegrace Angel, and take out Reya Dawnbringer and Angel of the Dire Hour for some of the others I mentioned.

Regarding other spells, you might like Journey to Nowhere instead of Pacifism, or maybe Oblivion Ring/Banishing Light so it's not only for creatures.

Also, your angels won't die that often, so I would cut a couple of Defy Death for something with more utility like Survival Cache, that gives you lifegain + card drawing.

And lastly, if you take out most of your 6+ angels, you won't need Quicksilver Amulet so you could use faster ramp like Pearl Medallion or Oketra's Monument.

And that's all I can think of right now. I'll leave you the links to my angel decks in case you want to check them :) Mono-white Angels, Angels are coming, Angels and the townsfolk

You definitely want Scroll of Avacyn.

And if you want early game Angelic Page, Serra Avenger and Emancipation Angel might be good. Illusory Angel and Jenara, Asura of War if you want to splash blue. If you go smaller Angels Lyra Dawnbringer gets better too.

This ended up being really, really long...so if it's TL;DR or you feel too critical, feel free to delete it (I wouldn't even complain at this point). Hard to really see this as an "Enchantress" deck while only being able to use Mesa Enchantress and NOT including a Serra's Sanctum to boot. Much more simply an Enchantment heavy Angel deck, which I definitely approve of since I love both Enchantments and Angels, but the title is misleading.

Enchantress is a deck centered around the Enchantress triggers of Argothian Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Eidolon of Blossoms; and if you're adding a color, you add White so you can use Mesa Enchantress and Femeref Enchantress. Without this core, it's not Enchantress.

As for the rest of the deck, it looks like it should be able to hold its own, but would probably improve with some cheaper Angels or more ramp. I used to run Voltron Akroma, Angel of Wrath and had to use tons of mana rocks just to make it playable. Akroma also cost 5WWW to get the FIRST time soooo....yeah...

Angels:Serra Avenger, Angelic Page, Emancipation Angel, Seraph of the Sword, Sustainer of the Realm, Angel of Condemnation, Seraph of Dawn, Blinding Angel, Herald of the Host, Angel of Sanctions, Angelic Arbiter, Angel of Serenity, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Resolute Archangel, Archangel of Thune, Baneslayer Angel, Serra Ascendant, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Iona, Shield of Emeria.

Enchantments:Serra's Blessing, Brave the Sands, True Conviction, Righteous Cause, Aura of Silence, Blind Obedience, Endless Horizons, Spirit Loop, Karmic Justice, Nevermore, Seal of Cleansing, Sphere of Safety, Spiritual Focus, Starfield of Nyx, Worship, Moat, Test of Endurance

Rocks/Ramp:Land Tax is pricey, but the best mono white land grabber in the game.Gilded Lotus, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Manalith, Fellwar Stone, Spectral Searchlight, Darksteel Ingot, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Pristine Talisman, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Explorer's Scope, Thunder Totem, Marble Diamond.

Lands:Seraph Sanctuary, Reliquary Tower, Serra's Sanctum, Command Beacon, Path of Ancestry, Cavern of Souls

Other:Door of Destinies, Herald's Horn, Howling Mine, Demystify, Disenchant, Fragmentize, Forsake the Worldly, Fumigate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Approach of the Second Sun, Faith Healer, Grand Abolisher, Open the Vaults, Replenish, Second Sunrise, Oketra's Monument

A number of these are pretty pricey (and definitely out of my price range) but as someone who plays White in every format he plays, a Tribal player and an Enchantress player, I can go on and on and on about these kinds of decks...This deck happens to have a White-centric tribe and is Enchantment based. XD My apologies.

This deck seems like it would appreciate Honor of the Pure, Serra Avenger, Aerial Responder, and Path to Exile. I like your deck, I hope my suggestions are helpful.

Hello there, and welcome to the wonderful world of Commander! This looks like a solid start to a deck, but I have a few suggestions that might help take you to the next level:

In any case, good luck with your deck! If you want help on another deck, or if you'd like me to justify some of my suggestions, feel free to leave another comment on my profile!

In these colors your removal options are really low and Path to Exile is almost only seriously good one.

Oust Is option for removal but it isn't great either.

https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/615456#paper This deck has same idea and is even decently good, pretty optimal for you i would say.

Wilt-Leaf Liege, Dromoka's Command and Knight of New Alara are cards to consider.

Experiment One Also very good if you want to go more aggro plan.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip Is solid creature but problem is that all played boardwipes cost 4 mana and Avacyn is too slow for that.

I don't like hydras either, they are very slow and clunky.

If you want protection against boardwipes Selfless Spirit is what you want to play.

You could also play more like hatebear stylish style and play cards like, Thraben Inspector, Leonin Arbiter, Serra Avenger, Blade Splicer, Flickerwisp, Mirran Crusader, Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Restoration Angel. Deck would be whole different but its option.

And most of these cards are powerful alone too, you don't play fetches so Leonin Arbiter is amazing, Thraben Inspector is just amazing in every creature based deck that isn't aggro, Blade Splicer/Flickerwisp/Restoration Angel package doesn't really fit in this but you could play it, few of Serra Avengers could go in here hey it's 2 mana 3/3 flying Vigilance!, Mirran Crusader is more like sideboard card but one of in main deck is also understandable because everyone plays removal, Thalia, Heretic Cathar is still pretty good card you could play few.

I leave DnT list on here if you are interested to check it: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-death-and-taxes-34549#paper.
