That's definitely more on the casual side, save for Trinisphere and a few staxy effects here and there. Putting Ballista and Triskelion here just because there's Heliod somewhere in the deck seems weak, especially since there are no tutors. Anyway, cards you might wanna consider, given this is mono white, are Knight of the White Orchid, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and you might want to trim down some of the higher CMC cards, Luminous Angel doesn't do much for 7 mana, and Triumphant Reckoning doesn't bring back creatures, and this is clearly a creature deck. Keep trying tho.

I am not fond of aeon engine, because reversing turn order is not a very useful effect, and can be abused to prevent a player from taking a turn; such effects should have been kept in un-sets, in my mind.
However, that new version of Chainer is quire awesome; is he the fourth character from the Weatherlight saga to be given a new card? I hope not, since he lived long after that story was over. The fact that the creatures that he reanimates do not become nightmares is a flavor fail, unfortunately. I now wonder if there shall be a new version of Braids in the future, or perhaps a card of Chainer’s mentor, Skellum?
Bloodthirsty blade is a very unique and interesting design, and does anyone here think that that is Gerrard in the artwork, when he and Urza were forced to fight each other?
The reprint of Geth is nice, since he has become expensive, recently.
That new demon is quite awesome, as it is essentially a second Phyrexian Obliterator for this format; its mana cost is rather high, but the fact that it has madness helps to balance that.
Skyfire phoenix is a very nice card, and I especially appreciate the artwork; does it remind anyone here of the Firebird segment of Disney’s Fantasia 2000?
Yes, there is a new version of Greven! I especially like how his artwork is a dark parallel to the artwork in the new version Gerrard, although I do not remember if the two of them ever fight (although I still am reading Prophecy, and have not yet reached the Invasion cycle in the novels).
That reprint of Soul Foundry is great; it was not terribly expensive, but it still was long overdue for a reprint, in my mind; since I started playing this game in 2003, when I was still in high school, I have many fond memories (and some not-so-fond) of that card.
The reprint of Pristine Angel is also nice, but I do wish that she had been given new art for it. I actually am surprised that WotC did not reprint Luminous Angel , because she would have been perfect for the populate deck.
Mire in misery is definitely a bend for black, but at least it does not outright destroy enchantments.

Yeah the deck was centered around combining abilities (Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Concerted Effort being the big plays) and control. The commander's ability does blend nicely with Concerted Effort for sure though. Luminous Angel would be a great idea if I decide to morph this into a token deck as all the abilities could be spread over all the tokens.
I have a tendency try not to include "staples" in my decks as you tend to basically just build the same decks other people make which is why I don't have Avacyn, Angel of Hope in here. That being said, I also want my deck to be good! I am thinking that I might make this instead but I can't decide on a commander.

Angels tend to be expensive. Look at all the angels you control. If their power and toughness + their ability do not equal (In your mind) their cost, I could cut it.
Take a card like Luminous Angel, a 4/4 flyer for 7 mana that creates 1 token on your upkeep is quite useless unless you are in a stax heavy meta, or have more token generators.
