Everdawn Champion and Seraph of the Sword seem like perfect blockers. Other cards like Hundred-Handed One and Watcher in the Web . Also theres cards like High Ground and Brave the Sands help out big time as well. Someone mentioned Stuffy Doll I think that's a great one. Someone mentioned Guardian of the Gateless that card and all the cards that allow you to block multiple creatures go great with Godsend . Theres so many great blockers. Someone mentioned Ophiomancer , that's a fantastic suggestion.

There are lots and lots, but a few I like are Ophiomancer , Spellskite , Selfless Spirit , and Permeating Mass . Higher cost cards like Palisade Giant and Guardian of the Gateless are fine, too.

Hey, nice start, mono white can be tricky to build and play in Commander. You have Avacyn, Angel of Hope, make her the Commander? This is Angel tribal, but using Elesh Norn as Commander is strange...

No matter the Commander with Angel tribal Angels take up most, if not all, the high CMC spots in the deck because the best Angels have high CMCs. My advice is cut the majority of the other nonAngel high CMC (5 CMC or higher) cards. Ramp and Angels should be priority.

Cards to consider cutting right away because they're not as good as other cards or are redundancy you don't need:

This is 20 cards that doing a quick look over are subpar compared to the rest. The next 10 cards are cut to streamline by choosing the most important cards at different CMCs and cutting the others. Cards to consider cutting:

The last four cards is where it gets difficult to make cuts, but continue to streamline:

Hopefully this info helps and I offer more advice especially if you change to Avacyn, Angel of Hope as Commander since there's several good interactions to take advantage of.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia Thanks for including cuts. It's often quite difficult trying to weed out cards.

Persuasion and Guardian of the Gateless are strictly meta based choices. I'd say they are a bit weak but have otherwise been helpful in my play group.

Open the Armory is a great suggestion. I will have to test it out.

Hey, you're welcome.

Cards to consider cutting to add Tome of Legends and others later on.

I don't think any of these cards are needed/make your deck better or are worth the amount of mana they cost to cast. Moonsilver has a good repeatable attack trigger, but the problem with it is it's eight mana (four to cast and four to equip). It's lackluster compared to the Swords. If you didn't have the Swords then Moonsilver could be an option.

Because you have Sword of Fire and Ice and want more draw I think Open the Armory is worth including. If it's not getting Sword FnI then it can get another equipment.

It looks beautiful. A few ideas. Guardian of the Gateless and Seraph of the Sword are both decent blockers, Seraph Sanctuary gains you life, Baneslayer Angel is a 5 mana 5/5 w/ lifelink + first strike (and protection from demons and dragons), and Archangel of Tithes can help slow down attackers.

Back when Return of Ravnica came out I went to a FNM in West Virginia at the comic store. Placed 9th out of 75 players with a home brew white/black deck. My favorite win was against a woman using an mono green elf token deck. She had 200 1/1 elf tokens on the field. All I had was one little 3/3 angel Guardian of the Gateless. Saved my butt! Blocked everything she had and killed all of her little elfs. I thought she had me because I was waiting for an Overrun or something like that. Anyways!! At that point I kept alive till I came back from the grave.
