Great idea! Going to start simple and test out just one scry effect:
Omen of the Sea ==> Cast Out

Titanic Brawl, Pit Fight, Path to Exile, Cast Out or any other type of removal is always recommended to decks that can't FTK or can end the game in 6 turns or less. Your opponents will get to play Magic as soon as your done with your turn and will try to disrupt you once they see your strategy while they execute theirs. Another type of cards you can use are Divine Deflection, Heroic Intervention, or anything similar to protect your creatures from destruction based board wipes.

Nice deck : ) I always really liked Firja and this looks like a really nice build for her.
My only suggestion might be to have more permanent based removal rather than instants and sorceries. I have a Bruna, the Fading Light Meld self mill deck and I found that things like Skyclave Apparition or Cast Out and Prison Term are more effective than Swords to Plowshares because they can come back to play and pick new targets, where swords is usually a dead milled card. And something like Spectral Steel can get back something like Swift Reconfiguration which can be super annoying to your opponents. Especially with Heliod's Pilgrim or Moon-Blessed Cleric to tutor removal, play removal, and then replay them off Hall of Heliod's Generosity or a similar effect.
But you would know a lot better than me how it plays : ) Just a suggestion because I play a similar strategy and had my deck change over time to fit the mill theme.

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

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.
Blinding Souleater could easily be replaced by Law-Rune Enforcer, or, if you'd prefer an artifact creature, Burnished Hart is just better in general.
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.
Consul's Shieldguard... see the Aegis Angel comments.
Court Street Denizen... see the Blinding Souleater comments, though this one is better so it's definitely worth keeping around if you want.
Drillworks Mole is a cool card. Basri Ket, Felidar Retreat, and Cathars' Crusade are good too.
Eldrazi Devastator is actually a card I used to run in my decks as a finisher. I would recommend something like Finale of Glory as an alternative that you can really sink your mana into.
Felidar Cub is nice, but War Priest of Thune is strictly better.
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.
Inspiring Overseer and Knight of the White Orchid are good.
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.
Toolcraft Exemplar is a really cool card that I have NEVER seen before. If it's working well for you, you should try out Serra Ascendant as well. It runs in a similar vein.
Welcoming Vampire is good too.
Celestial Flare could be replaced by Silence.
Dauntless Onslaught could be replaced by Charge, Bastion Protector, Benalish Marshal, Ethereal Guidance, Glorious Anthem, Guardians' Pledge, or Path of Bravery.
Divine Verdict could just be replaced by plain removal, like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Conclave Tribunal, or Oblivion Ring.
Feat of Resistance is nice.
Gideon's Reproach - see Divine Verdict's feedback.
Gods Willing is good.
Kill Shot - see Divine Verdict's feedback. Actually, for the rest of these cards see that and Dauntless Onslaught's feedback.
Aligned Hedron Network is good.
Cloak of the Bat and Hero's Blade - see Dauntless Onslaught's feedback, but also Commander's Plate.
Spidersilk Net doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If you want another 0-mana artifact, look no further than Mishra's Bauble.
Font of Vigor - see previous comment
Siegecraft - Eldrazi Conscription is one of the best auras in the game, but Battle Mastery is nice too
Not Forgotten - Rest in Peace, Ashnod's Altar
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!
