Commander_JAR: Most cEDH decks that aren't based around beats (i.e. stuff like Najeela) are pretty creature light. Or the creatures you're playing against are typically mana dorks that people don't want to just chump block with. So Tymna is able to generate card advantage off of Tana (who can also just roll over 1/1 chump blockers). In addition, Tymna's lifelink is nothing to scoff at.
The problem with Ravos is that he costs 5 mana (you should be doing something strong with 5 mana) and then he takes an entire turn to do anything. In addition to that, cEDH removal is typically cards that either bounce to hand or straight up exile, so he doesn't generate any value there.
In more casual or more creature heavy settings you do have to work harder to get card advantgae off Tymna. But one of the things that Tana stax brings to the table is that she helps clear the board of creatures to let you connect unhindered.
If you didn't want to go down the stax route, you could always look at adding cards like Spirit Mantle to the deck, which lets Tana connect more consistently which then in turn helps you draw cards. Also (and it is a casual deck but) Sublime Archangel can be a bit of an MVP with Tana, especially if you have a few saprolings/dorks down already.

I managed to get a test game in yesterday and that combo of having Bishop of Wings and Righteous Valkyrie was gaining me so much life. I still like the idea of Spirit Mantle over Light of Hope for now but with all that life gain, I wasn't doing much with it. I am going to try running another Valkyrie Harbinger and see if that helps. Otherwise I may try to make room for a 3rd Angelic Accord .

You seem to have run into one of the main problems I had when first constructing my Legacy Mono-White Aura deck; mainly being that you can build up quite a defense, but end up light on win conditions.
I would encourage you to look at my build for some ideas, not the least of which being Spirit Mantle which literally equates to Unblockable (more accurately; can't be blocked by creatures) for guaranteed damage per turn. Combined with an infinite defensive sink, my deck allows you to eat any amount of damage all while continuing to swing away with Unblockable (equiv.) creatures that grow very large very quickly. It's a monster of a deck, one of my most reliable and enjoyable to play.
Give it a look, either way +1 on your first attempt!

I'd recommend putting a LOT more ramp in here so you can get Narset out sooner. All 3 Signets, all 3 Talismans (i.e. Talisman of Creativity), Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Worn Powerstone, and Basalt Monolith. I'd drop Jeskai Banner though... if it costs but only adds 1 mana it's not worth it. Generator Servant ramps and gives haste (only creature I ran tbh).
Feel free to pick through my list for ideas (it's not budget friendly but there's some cheaper gems to be found). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Oh I forgot about Thassa, God of the Sea I actually have one laying around so that’s perfect. I like Spirit Mantle and Unquestioned Authority I’ll give them a try. Thank you SonneKrieger7 , I’ll take a look at your list as well.

I never play Azorius so I made a Bruna deck similar to this recently. I would definitely go with an unblockable voltron strategy.
You're on the right track with Steel of the Godhead. You can also add Aqueous Form, Spirit Mantle, and Unquestioned Authority to make it unblockable. Aqueous Form also gives you a scry effect. Thassa, God of the Sea is pretty good too if you have the budget for it.
Here's a link if you want to see the Bruna deck. It's mostly enchantments but maybe you'll like some of them.

You should get some cards that make Kaalia unblockable like Spirit Mantle or Whispersilk Cloak so that she is safer. You don't have many dragons or Planeswalkers, so Sarkhan the Masterless kinda sucks in this deck. Instead of Disenchant or Abolish, you should run Revoke Existence. The other Kaalia, Kaalia, Zenith Seeker goes well with your Kaalia. Terror of the Peaks would be good, Rune-Scarred Demon too, Vilis, Broker of Blood (you need draw), Demonlord Belzenlok (for the same reason), Thundermaw Hellkite gives a free attack basically and so does Master Warcraft, and Akroma's Will is just really strong, and since you seem to want to destroy a lot of artifact and enchantments, Heliod's Intervention would be good for you. There are a ton of good cards, but I guess the agony of this kind of deck is that it is hard to choose which ones to include. I don't know what all else to say, but I hope this helps.
