I think you meant, "dilute," BirdClaw, lol.
What I see in this deck is a very high mana curve that doesn't break until T4, and then, only by 1. I suggest cutting creatures down to 18 and filling those slots with disruption instants. Counterspells, fogs, bounces, destroys - Negate , Holy Day , Vapor Snag , Hurkyl's Recall , Pongify , Path to Exile , Nevermore , Journey to Nowhere , Oblivion Ring , Detention Sphere , Cast Out , Seal Away , Pongify , Imprisoned in the Moon , etc.
Since you don't have any one drops to play T1, Temple of Enlightenment seems great here.

That's pretty much the case, yes.
I can give out a few options that I find good, but playtesting as well as local meta should be the deciding factors.
Collective Brutality is great because it's both good against burn, some other aggro decks, and most two card combo decks. It's very versatile.
Fulminator Mage is good against land-based decks, control, and decks with steep curves.
Night of Souls' Betrayal is awesome against decks with a lot of 1 toughness creatures, and it's also quite cheap these days. It used to be a $20 card. It could be an idea to pick up soon in case it's price shoots up again.

I would definately add Saheeli, Sublime Artificer its crazy the amount of value you can get off her. Also Dovin's Veto is worth considering over Negate . I'm working on something similar myself except taking more of a prison/pillow fort style deck. Thanks for the Evolution Sage + Scapeshift idea somehow i completely glossed over that.

Brainstorm , and Ponder are good effects but you have better options for draws. top deck manipulation also isn't that important for this deck. Why Emergency Powers the pay off isn't that good and it's expensive to cast. You could use some more Counterspell s, Negate , Mana Tithe ;), Dispel , etc. Laboratory Maniac is wincon with BSZ. Why no Teferi, Hero of Dominaria or Teferi, Time Raveler . Looks solid so far.

How to deal with Ratchet Bomb or other boardwipes - that's a big issue. While Brave the Elements does great against targeted removal, something that will prevent global effects will be much more difficult in mono-white. Mana Tithe comes to mind, but isn't particularly reliable. Something like Blood Artist seems like it could be good. If you decide to splash black, Priest of Forgotten Gods might add a second dimension to this otherwise straightforward build. Of course, splashing blue for Negate , etc would work, too. and with green, you'd of course gain access to Heroic Intervention .
It's probably a good idea to have a solid one drop spell to get things rolling on T1, but I have doubts about Champion of the Parish in that slot. Doomed Traveler seems like a better fit, and Soul's Attendant or Soul Warden are sure-bets.
In terms of non-token creatures, Thalia's Lieutenant might also be worth considering, but only to pump any tokens you have in play. At 2CMC, I think it would be competing for mana with your 2-drop token spells. That said, the 4x pumps Intangible Virtue provide won't be reliable. Honor of the Pure , while offering less value in many ways than both Virtue and Lieutenant, is still probably better than the Lieutenant here.
Probably needs at least 2x more lands, if not 4x more to reliably get the mana to cast Elspeth, Sun's Champion . Otherwise, it will likely be a dead card most games. I also suggest reducing Elspeth to 1-2x.
If you splash red for Impact Tremors, Chained to the Rocks might be worth considering.
I'd drop 1x Disenchant for 1x Oblivion Ring , or add at least 3x Oblivion Ring s to the sideboard. I also suggest adding Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality , Revoke Existence , Teyo, the Shieldmage , and Nevermore to the sideboard.

Enhanced Surveillance is an important sb here as it’s my main defense against someone trying to mill me out, as this deck relies of heavy surveiling. However, I agree that Capture Sphere and Quench might not be up to snuff. I’ll look into swapping a pair of Negate s in for those two.

Sb is pretty all over the place. Have more consistency. Then there are just cards that aren't as powerful. Capture Sphere , Quench , and Enhanced Surveillance is a trap. It isn't good. Perhaps more threats in the sb or just overall better removal. This is a control deck. Where are the Negate s?
