Honestly I would do stax. You can use Winter Orb and Relic Barrier to make opponents only untap one land. Use other stax cards like Drannith Magistrate and Nevermore to make opponents not be able to cast their commander. Ghostly Prison , Aven Mindcensor , and Aura of Silence are good here as well. For more expensive cards use Opposition Agent , Hullbreacher and Static Orb . You can win with lifegain by using Felidar Sovereign or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Exquisite Blood . For a control wincon you could use Approach of the Second Sun .

Blasting Station -> Altar of Dementia
We can do the same instant win combo, interactions, etc, but this also allows for self-mill, so you can get more things in grave that Sun Titan and Emeria, The Sky Ruin can play for free instead of casting them (and usually faster too!). Plus the mill used aggressively outside of our combo can really throw some decks off of their feet.
Pilgrim's Eye -> The Birth of Meletis
Does a Pilgrim's Eye and makes a Wall of Omens like we used to have (minus the draw, but our Mentor of the Meek can help with that). The little bit of extra life-gain from this, plus what we can get from Charming Prince makes Lone Missionary kinda redundant, so I can replace him. Considering using one of his slots for a 3rd Altar of Dementia , 2 of them to move Aura of Silence to mainboard (since we don't have the ability to deal w/ Artifacts and Enchants w/ Oblivion Ring anymore), currently unsure what to do with the last slot, so it'll be a 3rd Blade Splicer as a placeholder.
of course, now I need to plan a new sideboard

Looking like a solid budget list! Some cheap suggestions could be Teferi's Ageless Insight , Starfield Mystic , Idyllic Tutor , Sun Titan , Hanna, Ship's Navigator , Imprisoned in the Moon , Darksteel Mutation , Aura of Silence , and Auramancer . Non-budget options could look like Enlightened Tutor , Argothian Enchantress , or Sterling Grove

The candidates I would look at would be Aura of Silence and Blind Obedience , perhaps swapped for Act of Authority which is a beautiful ETB for Aminatou EVEN if you use it twice. Less tax, more exile, minus one card. The other one might be Oath of Liliana unless you find those tokens very useful. But that would be pretty harmless for getting a much stronger effect in, I think.

ClockworkSwordfish Thanks for the feedback. I didn't think about artifacts when I was doing this decklist. I will definitely try to fit in Disenchant and try to get Seraph Sanctuary since those seem like the easier/cheaper cards for me to get right now. I think depending on how my group grows over time, I will consider getting cards like Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Aura of Silence and some of the other legendary angels.

I couldn't help but notice that Banishing Light is your only way to deal with artifacts, even including the sideboard. Yeah, it gets the job done, but it can also be undone. You might find it worthwhile to run Disenchant over Light of Hope for the added coverage. If not, you could also make room in your sideboard for something like Stony Silence , Kataki, War's Wage or Aura of Silence .
To ensure you have staying power in the late game, I always consider making room for a couple copies of Emeria, The Sky Ruin in big, plodding mono-white decks like this. It can be great to have that kind of card advantage keeping your board presence in place after so simple an act as amassing lands. If you want to keep your deck a little more casual than that, though, even a couple of the humble Seraph Sanctuary could give your gameplay a little push without noticeably compromising your mana base.
