KodenejmBerni: Graceful Reprieve is here because it can target my creatures AND my opponent's creatures, for instance if I have no Turn to Mists or Crib Swaps in hand, I still have the opportunity to leverage some life swings. Most of the time it will save my own creatures though, when I chump with them.
You do raise a good point about the 4 mana required to pull it off though. Perhaps I should take out a couple and add some actual removal. Thanks for the help!
passimo: Yes, Spell_Slam mentioned it above a while back. I'm just now getting around to scrounging some up copies and updating the deck. (I have, and continue to make, a lot of decks so I don't get around to updating as often as I'd like.) I actually just discovered Afterlife, which is pauper legal thanks to MTGO, and it actually destroys, rather than exiles, meaning better synergy with Graceful Reprieve, so I'm also considering that now, too. So thanks, lol, I already pre-approved your suggestion! And glad to hear you like the deck!

I'm unsure if you have a budget or not, but I'd recommend cutting Privileged Position in favor of Greater Auramancy . The CMC is a lot cheaper and as such easier to play. I'd also advise running more permanent removal like Beast Within , Generous Gift , or even things like Afterlife and Path to Exile . I know you're running a life-gain subtheme, but I think either Library of Leng or Wheel of Sun and Moon would be a better fit than Venser's Journal due to the cheaper CMC. The way I view it is if you have cheaper enchantments, you can cast more per turn, in turn drawing more cards per turn. I'd also advise something like Lightning Greaves , as Sythis draws a huge target on herself for being able to easily draw 3+ cards a turn. I'd also advise Luminarch Ascension as it plays into your theme of angels.
If you're open to the idea of other win-cons, one I use in my Sythis deck is Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Linvala, Keeper of Silence and Nature's Revolt . Another win-con I've seen people use, albeit I don't use it myself, is Parallax Wave and Opalescence . Essentially, you abuse the stack with Wave, targeting four opponents creatures and then itself. It goes away, and comes back as a creature with five more counters. The original is still exiled, so all of your opponents creatures remain in exile.
If you wanna take a gander at my version of Sythis, you can find it here [EDH] Sythis Enchantress

MrXilas - haven't had a chance to run any pedh. Though I assure you this list has both ramp and removal. Though I have gold fished it a few times and found its main flaw being draw engines.

Huh. Dunno how I stumbled across this deck. You only want white removal ideas? How about...
Condemn, Gaze of Justice, Reciprocate, Spirit Link (does double-duty for you in this deck), Oust? Harm's Way? Reprobation? Afterlife? Crib Swap?
There are just a ton of options in white for removal - even on a budget. You have to remember, though, that a mono-white deck is going to have a bit of a problem with card draw, so targeted removal in a multiplayer game could put you at a disadvantage. Especially if you have too much.
Well of Lost Dreams might be worth squeezing into your budget... That actually just reminded me of Cradle of Vitality which would be pretty awesome here.
Again, consider more board wipes than targeted removal (I'll give suggestions on those too, if you're interested).
Good luck brewing!

Dark_Danda Thanks for the feedback! I've been trying to make this deck fairly competitive while still fun. I definitely feel that is one area this deck could use a little help in is control, but I have been thinking about adding Beast Within or Afterlife to help out with some of the more problematic creatures I may encounter. I agree that Mox Amber would be amazing in here, but don't have one at the moment. Appreciate the help!

You might consider Rending Vines since most PDH artifacts/enchantments are going to be cheap and it draws a card. Afterlife may be better removal than Blessed Light though it doesn't exile. Scuttlemutt is strictly better than Opaline Unicorn unless you like the art on Unicorn more.
