Siona, Captain of the Pyleas
Legendary Creature — Human Soldier
When Siona, Captain of the Pyleas enters the battlefield, look at the top seven cards of your library. You may reveal an Aura card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.
Whenever an Aura you control becomes attached to a creature you control, create a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token.

This looks really impressive, great deck! It's a shame Uril is 15 bucks, otherwise I'd really like to build around him.
A card I can suggest that I included in my Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is Gargos, Vicious Watcher . He's somewgat of an echantress itself in that it can kill a creature whenever you enchant any of your creautures.

Working on the card draw and acquisition:
End game requires consideration of going going long or wide:
If wide, switch commander to Siona, Captain of the Pyleas and include cards like Shielded by Faith , Gift of Immortality , Flickering Ward , Spirit Loop , Rancor , Fortitude , Whip Silk , Auratog , Thaumatog .
Siona would be my push because she adds combo lethality. Sythis is just a great 99 imo.

Thank you, AkaAkuma. This deck is special to me, and I'm glad you like it.
Knight of Autumn would be on the list if it were on theme. Its pretty perfect for a more typical Tayam deck, which has gotten some spicy new cards since I built Tayam, but my theme requirement lead me down other paths. Dreadhorde Invasion was in my original pile of potential cards for the deck, but it never made the cut. I ended up favoring enchantment creatures over a once per turn token creator, simply because I wanted more immediate payoff.
Pairing Teysa, Orzhov Scion with Siona, Captain of the Pyleas initially happened because I wanted to trigger Siona with Screams from Within to get endless constellation triggers (I will eventually find a way to fit the card in, but I ended up not being able to find my copy of the card for a long tome and had the deck built before I found it). Thinking about other cards with black that might want white tokens lead me to Teysa.
I still need to make changes to add in some modern horizons 2 cards.
As for how it plays, if you don't find a combo early, it can sit back and defend fairly effectively, and this is when the deck is most enjoyable to play. I like having tools in my graveyard and counters to pay Tayam's cost, and then react to other players trying to do their thing, and I love being able to activate Tayam without telling anyone what I'm bringing back. Seeing the same pile of cards is a given, but no 2 games are the same.

Gleeock: I actually did some playtesting yesterday (with four times myself...times are rough) will a pod of the following decks of mine (all of which are uploaded here in more or less updated state):
Lurrus of the Dream-Den eggs/aristocrats
And finally my above Thantis. While Lurrus basically annihilated the table including the floor beneath it, the way Thantis played out was exactly like you described: It put out some major threats and would have had a pretty big influence if any of it could have kept any of the three boards it build (as I said, Lurrus went totally nuts, also Moraug had to double-wipe before and after Siona went off on turn 5...).

So, the most popular two card competitive g/w enchantment combos are the following, all of which are powerful on their own, but win w/ combat on the following turn or with another effect, such as Altar of the Brood , or in another way.

Raving Visionary: Feels kinda weird flavor for a Merfolk, but I'm guessing it's supposed to be a reference to the OG Looter
"Search the Premises": Meh. At least it triggers per creature and not just per attack on you.
"Sythis, Hand of the Harvest": It's surprising that we haven't gotten a general green-white enchantment commander until now; closest thing is Siona, Captain of the Pyleas . ( Daxoz would have probably been it if the OG experience commanders weren't locked into enemy pairs.)
Chitterspitter: Yeah no. I don't enjoy being the fun-hater for these kind of things, but along with Dermotaxi I feel that this is stepping things into the kind of silly territory that's more appropriate for silver border. Sacrifice in green feels kinda weird too, even if it's far from unheard of.
Dauthi Voidwalker: W-what? Even if it's not super hard to remove, a Leyline of the Void effect on legs that's usually unblockable at MV 2 is already pretty good. And on top of that, you can cast one of the things that gets exiled for free?! Yeah, just counterspell an ultimatum with this out and watch people cry. (At least timing restrictions still apply.)
Foundation Breaker: Nothing spectacular but it's a nice bread-and-butter effect for decks like Nikya of the Old Ways
