Something like this might do you better:
4x Ardent Plea
4x Cast Out
4x Lay Claim

I also think maybe you want to aim for a deck that uses 22-23 lands, just so you can more reliably apply pressure early

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.
Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.
Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.
Banisher Priest is good.
Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.
Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.
Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.
Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.
Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.
Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.
From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.
Welcoming Vampire is good too.
Feat of Resistance is nice.
Gods Willing is good.
Aligned Hedron Network is good.
Font of Vigor - see previous comment
Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned
Also consider Sphere of Safety.
I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

Thanks for the input, but I am actually going to disagree. While more mainboard removal like Cast Out is something to consider, I do not think Blood Moon is much of a threat to this deck. So, firstly, there are slightly higher than the average basic land count here because we want a basic forest for Utopia Sprawl (which can name other colors of mana besides green). Secondly, in a pinch we could Spreading Seas our own lands. Finally, Sterling Grove and Idyllic Tutor mean we will sometimes be able to find removal for Blood Moon, Magus of the Moon, or what have you if we need it.

Thanks for the kind words! Much appreciated!!
Setessan Champion is a card that I actually thought I had in the deck... and then realized it's in my Arena version of this deck and not my paper one. lol Probably the first addition whenever I make tweaks!
Vedalken Orrery is a great card and one I've been meaning to get for a long time... once it gets a reprint. That card is pretty expensive at the moment. :/ Cast Out was a card that I hadn't really considered due to it's higher mana cost than my other "removal" spells but having flash does make it pretty enticing... Maybeboard for now! Skybind does sound really interesting and could lead to some pretty interesting shenanigans. I think I even have a foil one somewhere. I'll have to add it to the maybeboard for consideration later. Swift Reconfiguration also sounds like a great idea. I'll have to add that one to the maybeboard, as well!
I would also have loved if Satsuki had a third color. Blue would've been great, red or black would also have been nice. Maybe we'll get another saga commander from Dominaria United/Brother's War later in the year? Hopefully more sagas, too!

This looks like a really awesome deck, and I do love enchantress builds. When they work, they work so well : ) This looks super synergistic as is, and the only recommendations I might have are ones I used in an enchantress deck, but it also wasn't sagas, so may not work. Just figured I'd throw a few oddballs out there : )
Setessan Champion can sometimes just be another enchantress and sometimes she can be a big, bad enchantress.
Skybind is one of those, can steal games or do not much at all cards, but I love it : ) With flash enchantments like Swift Reconfiguration or a flash enabler like Vedalken Orrery you can use it to double down on your constellation effects, or offensively to blink your opponent's creatures at instant speed. A Blightsteel Colossus is only scary if it isn't getting blinked every turn. Plus, controlling games with a set up Skybind feels like a definite win.
Cast Out is one that I'm keen on, just because of the versatility. Hitting anything at instant speed is great, but also being able to cycle it makes it always do exactly what you need in a game. I like Prison Term, I play Skyclave Apparition but I always use Cast Out : ) And my favorite is to have something like Moon-Blessed Cleric or Heliod's Pilgrim that can tutor out enchantments like Prison Term to deal with threats when you really need them.
But it looks awesome to me! The proliferate and saga synergy seems really strong, and it would be great to have blue for Flux Channeler and things, but for this commander, this build seems really solid to me : ) Nice one!

wallisface While I appreciate the thoughts, I think you might be over-pushing the efficiency here. Of course decks that run mostly 1-2 and 3 mana spells have smoother hands; but for control decks that applies less so, esppecially on a budget. This deck aims to control the game, go long, and then finally seal the fate op the opponent by grinding Sanctum of Stone Fangs triggers.

Cast Out maybe.
You have a bunch of protection and indestructible so a Pariah's Shield might work.
