Creature — Kor Spirit
When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, exile up to one target nonland, nontoken permanent you don't control with converted mana cost/mana value 4 or less.
When CARDNAME leaves the battlefield, the exiled card's owner creates an X/X blue Illusion creature token, where X is the mana value of the exiled card.

In terms of your maybeboard Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a worse version of Sigarda, Font of Blessings at this point so I wouldn't bother with it. Surge of Salvation is cool but it would be a mostly dead draw if you already have Sigarda and you're probably going to be sidedecking Shapers' Sanctuary anyway as an Angels deck.
Metropolis Reformer is cool but it doesn't do enough for you compared to putting in Skyclave Apparition. Personally, I would swap alll copies of Metropolis Angel for copies of Skyclave Apparition. That way you get a more broadly targeting removal than Fateful Absence while putting another creature on the board to make the most of Righteous Valkyrie.
Errant and Giada doesn't do anything for you that Sigarda isn't already doing and you can get away with adding at least one more copy of Sigarda since it's such a high priority removal target for your opponenent that getting two in one game is okay in most match-ups. Also it let's you play Bishop of Wings from the top of your deck which Errant and Giada doesn't.
Aside from that I would say that putting in a fourth copy of of Kayla's Reconstruction and another copy of Nykthos definitely needs to be done. Additionally, if you're taking my advice and getting rid of Errant and Giada then you no longer need the blue mana and so you should really play some combination of fast/pain lands along with at least one copy of Mutavault to help kill your opponent. Emeria's Call Flip is another possibility mana wise as it has good late-game utility while expanding your land base a little.
I feel I may be a bit harsh but that would be my advice for improving this deck.
IHATENAMES on W/B Eldrazi and Taxes

Mono white dnt is my modern deck of choice haven't updated it recently though.
Let's talk about d/t theory in general. D/T is a meta slaying deck. The core of your taxveffect is white so it has the most stable manabase in mono white. Black is added mostly for some hand disruption. Eldrazi is added for a finisher effect and chunkier creatures.
Here the Eldrazi Displacer is adding to the gameplan but not a huge part. 3 mana 33 with upside sometimes. Probably better as 1 or 2 of. Ephemerate or Touch the Spirit Realm better to use to blink.
I think the *combo to focus on here is Wasteland Strangler +card in exile. With the inclusion of eldrazi temples I think Reality Smasher should be the finisher of choice.
Skyclave Apparition might be too color intensive with half your lands not producing white. Great card. But maybe sideboard it?
I'm a big fan of creature lands in d/t might be worth looking at.

Creatures you should find a way to include:
-Coiling Oracle, Knight of the White Orchid, and Farhaven Elf all seem better than some of the ramp you have.

Other thoughts are Waxmane Baku, Dungeon Geists, and Nikko-Onna as unorthodox control choices, Skyclave Apparition as a less unorthodox control choice, Cemetery Illuminator, Call to the Kindred, and Kindred Boon with some Myojin, especially Myojin of Seeing Winds. (Most things with Kindred in the name are good for tribal decks.)
Maybe not the Myojin. The new ones don't use divinity counters.

I dont know if you come up against spirits often... but because they run Selfless Spirit the needed Wrath of God effect can get hosed... I have found that Settle the Wreckage seems to be a good way to get around this because somtimes I just cant wait for Farewell.... speaking of spirits Skyclave Apparition and Phyrexian Missionary seel like they might have good synergy with Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines.

I think Cloudform and Lightform are probably too slow. Spirited Companion and Skyclave Apparition seem to fit those slots better. Some other considerations for this style of deck are Lae'zel's Acrobatics, Farewell, Solitude, Recruiter of the Guard, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, Soulherder, Preston, the Vanisher, Ephemerate, and Conjurer's Closet.

Nice build, I love the new norn!
Not sure if it's too slow for your taste, but Sword of Hearth and Home
I think Skyclave Apparition is probably pretty good here too.
Archon_Bel on Ephara Remastered *PRIMER FINALLY*

Nice to see another Ephara player lol. Here are my thoughts:
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite- I ran this version of Elesh for a time. She is a powerful card, but I never found she really did much for the deck when I ran her. In my experience, 7 mana was too high a cost to pay for no recurrable effect (I prefer to have effects that I can reuse by flickering), and it usually left me with less mana to spend during my opponents’ turns, which I found to be more important than being able to swing for damage. Why not run the new Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines, instead? She pairs a lot better with our EtB effects.
Lavinia of the Tenth- Cool card, and I get the concept behind her inclusion, but I personally never ended up running her. I prefer to remove creatures with stuff like Skyclave Apparition or Reflector Mage, or even just spot removal, than temporarily stopping them while keeping them on the field.
Ledger Shredder- I don’t really see what this card does for you. Like with Elesh Norn, I think it’s better to run creatures with EtB effects you can reuse with flicker effects.
Nezahal, Primal Tide- Same as above, plus the casting cost is way too high for my liking. Why not run something like Deadeye Navigator instead if you want a repeatable blink?
A few cards I’d recommend are Ephemerate, Momentary Blink, and Ghostway. The first two are very good instant blink cards, useful for reusing stuff like Reflector Mage on the spot for removal or Cloudblazer for some draw before your turn. You also get two uses out of them, so they’re good value and flexible cards. Ghostway is slightly better than Teferi's Protection in this deck imo, since you not only save your creatures, but you get their EtB effects again at end of turn. You don’t have the added benefit of protecting yourself from damage, though, so for that, I’d recommend Selfless Squire. Very underrated but super useful card in my experience; I once stalled a game out against a board full of 30+ dragons and only 3 life because of this card lol. Not a one-off occurrence either, as I’ve had several games where I’ve been able to keep myself from certain death by constantly flickering her effect; she’s incredible when combined with Archaeomancer and Ghostly Flicker!
Other creatures I’d recommend are Watcher for Tomorrow, Cloudblazer, and Saltskitter. The first two are great value engines with Soulherder and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. I held off for a long time on using Saltskitter, but when I did, man did he put in the work. I was pretty much drawing cards every turn. There’s also Orvar, the All-Form, though this pretty much does the same thing as Displacer Kitten. Having those extra bodies is nice, though, so it’s up to you. Could even just run both lol.
Oh, and you may as well add Altar of Dementia to complete your Reveillark and Karmic Guide package.
tl;dr focus more on creatures with EtB effects for more flicker value, and a few more blink spells.
