Thanks for your comment, cmsrDPM!
I originally did have Starfield of Nyx in the deck, but took it out to make room for Luminarch Ascension, mainly because it suddenly makes all of the important 3-mana enchantments in the deck like Ghostly Prison and Story Circle vulnerable to Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push. It feels a lot like a win-more card when it works as it's intended to, and like I just sacrificed all of my enchantments for no reason when it doesn't. I like the more attrition-based finishers like Luminarch Ascension and Sigil of the Empty Throne a lot more, mainly because they're so much more consistent.

Thanks for your comment, ThunderLemon! I hadn't considered Seraph Sanctuary at all! I think it might have a spot as a 1- or 2-of, mainly because the issue in this deck isn't winning once I play Sigil of the Empty Throne, it's living long enough to be able to play it in the first place. Definitely worth testing, though.

I see only two non-creature removal i wonder if that's enough. Maybe you could run 1 or two Seal of Primordium.
If you are using creatures like Courser of Kruphix and Nyx-Fleece Ram maybe Assault Formation could be nice too. Especially since you produce so much mana you could even pump all your angels and creatures late game for 3.
Don't know how common flyers are in you meta, but if they are, you could consider Bower Passage in the sideboard so your angels become ublockable.
I'm just finishing a build of a sub-themed enchantment deck myself, but that works a lot different than yours lol. Please check it out, give me your suggestions and thoughts and +1 if you like the idea: ??ZURS' Enchanted Woods ??!!

Thanks for the comment and upvote, OriginLeon!
As for your suggestions:
- While it's absolutely true that I don't have a lot of noncreature removal, I do have 3 Stony Silence in my sideboard, which is often enough to provide me with a significant advantage against artifact-based decks. I find that decks that rely on enchantments to win are few and far between, so I haven't found a need to add specific removal (such as Seal of Primordium) against them.
- Assault Formation is undeniably a good card with Courser of Kruphix and Nyx-Fleece Ram, but there's only 2 Coursers in my maindeck, and only 2 Rams in my sideboard, so I don't know how much that would actually accomplish. I might consider it as a 1-of, but I dunno.
- Bower Passage is another interesting card, but it feels a little win-more to me. I aim to win by swinging for 20+ power in the air all at once, and in the few situations in which I'd really need Bower Passage, I can usually just wait another turn. It would absolutely be worth considering if Lingering Souls becomes a major part of my meta, but right now, it's not.
As for your deck, it looks a lot like SaffronOlive's Zur-an deck; is that where you got the idea from? I'll be sure to take a closer look and give you some suggestions within the next few hours or so!

Your are correct! It is my spin on SaffronOlive's against the odds Zur-an deck.

So I played the deck a bit on MTGO, it's quite nice. The only thing I disliked about it is that at some point if Eidolon of Blossoms was killed I was left with to top decking... I will play test with a 2x Harmonize see if it's better. I also got into a situation where I has a ton of mana but nothing to do with it. I wonder what would be a good sinker.

Awesome, ThunderLemon, glad you enjoyed it! If you're finding that Eidolon of Blossoms are dying too much, you can try a couple of Greater Auramancys in the main to protect them. Maybe take out a couple of Abundant Growths, or perhaps a couple Herald of the Pantheons? I would run Greater Auramancys here, but they're a little too expensive for me. Also, its price will drop to like $5 or so if it's reprinted, so there's that too. As for Heliod, God of the Sun and Karametra, God of Harvests, I feel like they could both be run, but I think they're too much mana for too little effect. I'm open, though :)

Any ideas for a more budget build? I want to build it if its $60 or less. Definite +1

Wow! I love the deck, and really think you've done the best possible on it. Definite +1 from me, and added it to a folder so I can find it. I love seeing control in colors like green and white. Great Job!

Thanks for your comment, madgremlin! I have considered both, but the fact that neither of them replace themselves on ETB, plus the fact that I already have plenty of strong 3-drops, means that I don't think either of them belong here. I could see maybe cutting the Courser of Kruphixes, but I dunno.

I built this deck, everyone in the area started to have back to nature and nature's claim in the post board..

@Rekkoha Aww, I'm sorry man. That is unfortunately one of the main weaknesses of this deck; it has a hard time against dedicated enchantment hate. I don't know how much this will help, but maybe run some copies of Greater Auramancy and/or Privileged Position to make them waste their removal spells?

I had greater double greater auramancy locke before...Thanks to AER, I switched to heroic intervention...
