Really nice list, I love hatebears, heheh.
Unless you are particularly on a budget, I'd advise you to add some other bears, such as Alms Collector, Leonin Arbiter, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Glowrider.
Some of them are quite pricey though, I know, but with time this deck will become a force to be reckoned with!

There is also artifact/enchantment removal you should have like Crush Contraband , Aura of Silence which can also slow your opponents down, and Forsake the Worldly which can also be cycled away for 1 card.
Some board wipes can also be very good like Cleansing Nova , Fumigate , Mass Calcify this one costs a lot of mana so I wouldn't recommend it too much , Rout which has the advantage of being able to be used at instant speed. There is also Martial Coup which if you put enough mana into it then you'll have some soldiers on board after everything is over.

Also while you're kind of on to it already, more cards which discourages your opponents from casting their stuff so that you have more to work with: AEther Barrier, Aura of Silence, Aven Mindcensor, Frozen Aether, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Land Equilibrium, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Mana Breach, Overburden, Suture Priest

I like the group slug in combination with a pillowfort idea. Gisela's wording offers a pretty unique opportunity. Triggered effects that would deal 1 damage to you while she is on the board deal no damage to you instead, but double damage to opponents. Manabarbs, AEther Sting, Battle Strain, Burning Earth, Heat of Battle, Rampaging Ferocidon, City of Brass, Talisman of Conviction, Battlefield Forge are all cards that would have their negative effect negated if Gisela is on the field, while opponents would suffer more.
Ankh of Mishra, Psychogenic Probe, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar, Repercussion, Spellshock, Zo-Zu the Punisher would all be cards that have their negative effects mitigated with Gisela out and opponents would suffer a lot more.
You could complement this game plan with pieces like War's Toll, Caltrops, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Glowrider, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Vryn Wingmare, Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse to tax and slow them down while all the slug effects eat away at life totals.
I feel like there's quite a bit of space to be explored in this niche for Gisela.

You can go with a "Group Slug" theme. Group Slug uses cards that hurt everyone on the field--Burning Earth, Manabarbs, Spellshock, etc.--with some mechanism to ensure you are the last one standing (like Gisela's one-sided damage doubling). Throw in some classic Red/White Stax pieces like Stranglehold, Blood Moon, Aura of Silence, and Aven Mindcensor, alongside some other damage doublers like Furnace of Rath, and you have yourself a deck.

@AllTurnsRMine: Thank you for your comment. I totally agree, you need stax to slow down your opponents. But please take a closer look at my list, I already play Winter Orb, Cursed Totem, Verity Circle and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV. Stax is good but if you have too much of it, your extra turn chain may be broken and if that's the case you should play another strategy.
If I had more slots I would immediately play more stax, but this Narset build is more proactive than disruptive. If you want to see more stax elements, then a competitive Narset stax build is probably more for you.

Right now it's beatdown using all the anthems to boost and generate tokens. Prison would look more like Crawlspace, Static Orb, Overburden and such rather than Koskun Falls, Aura of Silence, or other effects that make them pay mana. It also provides lock options by combing with Opposition

I would personally run Nethroi, Apex of Death. Nethroi has lifelink which can be fun to pump up with auras, but Nethroi's reanimate ability can be seriously powerful at enchantment reanimation if you build your deck right.
Auramancer, Griffin Dreamfinder, Monk Idealist, Restoration Specialist, Trusty Retriever, Acolyte of Affliction, Golgari Findbroker, Lurrus of the Dream-Den, Eternal Witness, Felidar Guardian. These make excellent targets to recur enchantments and auras with as you could recur 4 to 5 enchantments every time Nethroi mutates.
Do keep in mind a few card draw enchantment creatures also have 0 power making them free to reanimate too. Creatures like: Argothian Enchantress, Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer.
Also if you run out of enchantments to recur I'd recommend running these enchantments as they're easy to both put into the graveyard and obtain value off of them which is what will make this strategy even stronger: Sinister Concoction, Seal of Primordium, Seal of Cleansing, Soul Snare, Weight of Conscience, Aura of Silence, Font of Fertility, Sterling Grove and Unbridled Growth. Sigil of the Nayan Gods and Cast Out also work if you only intend to cycle them.
