Ertai as an enchantment control deck is very doable. You're going to want to have enchantments out the ass, and have other control elements as well. Have library manipulation like Index, Ponder, Brainstorm, Sensei's Divining Top, Long-Term Plans to find the enchantments you need when you need them (you could also have some miracle cards in there like Entreat the Angels for a win-con or Terminus for a board wipe). Have cards that like enchantments, like Ethereal Armor to make a creature big or Sigil of the Empty Throne to make angels everywhere (note that Sigil makes 4/4 angels no matter what the CMC of the casted enchantment).
As for some controlling enchantments and things, Curse of Exhaustion + Knowledge Pool will lock an opponent out of the game, or if you'd rather, you can use Rule of Law to stop everyone from casting spells. Note that Knowledge Pool lets you cast cards from anyone's exiled cards for the price of any one measly spell. You can even flicker the Pool to get more cards available to cast!
Enchantments you could include in Ertai: Silkwrap, Stasis Snare, Encase in Ice, Pacifism, Quarantine Field, Banishing Light, Curse of the Bloody Tome, Curse of Exhaustion, Rule of Law, Curse of Thirst, Curse of Echoes, you get the idea. Search on Gatherer for enchantments in esper colors and you'll find lots.

Fatal Push will kill it every time. Also, Abrupt Decay will get rid of it. Silkwrap, Journey to Nowhere, Doom Blade, good old Murder, Surgical Extraction to rip it out of his deck once it's in the graveyard, Nevermore, Pongify, Beast Within, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Condemn, hell, even Jester's Cap will get rid of 3 of them, or you can use it to grab one, Surgical Extraction that copy for the other 3, then grab 2 other cards from his deck and possibly ruin his backup plans with yet another Surgical Extraction or simply by removing his alternate win-cons. If you want to be ridiculous, which I highly encourage, flash in Ambush Viper to kill it.
Basically, if his deck revolves around Walking Ballista, kill all of them. That's how you get around it
