Hey, nice version on a low budget. You have good deck building skills on a budget.
Consider Talisman of Hierarchy as 99th card or an upgrade for a Diamond? Orzhov Signet is another mana rock upgrade for a Diamond. Commander's Sphere is upgrade for Cluestone. Angelic Accord is an Angel token source upgrade for Moonsilver.
Sigarda's Vanguard gives Liesa double strike when she ETB and when she attacks. Karmic Guide can reanimate any creature in your graveyard even a black creature. Emeria Shepherd is powerful repeatable nonland permanent reanimation when playing so many Plains. Pair Shepherd with Wayfarer's Bauble.
Liesa, Forgotten Archangel has lifelink, can shut down some opponent strategies and can be repeatable creature recursion. She's good enough to add some creatures who can sac themselves for value especially removal and protection such as Cathar Commando and Selfless Spirit.
Angel of Despair is powerful ETB removal. Angel of Sanctions exiles something when it ETB. Admonition Angel can be repeatable exile. Palace Jailer is more monarch as well as opponent creature exile. Vindicate and Dire Tactics are some budget removal upgrades to consider.
Good luck with your deck.

The Wargear allows you to attack with any of your creatures blindly, as they will either hurt your opponent, die getting blocked, or die after you re-equip the armor to someone else.
Culling Dais is slow but another cheap draw mechanic.

I am planning to soon build my first two-colored EDH deck, so I would like some advice for it. More specifically, it shall be a two-colored deck with Liesa, Shroud of Dusk as the general, and I am wondering how many dual lands I should put into such a deck.
Obviously, lands such as Godless Shrine, Isolated Chapel, and Fetid Heath are a given, but, after that, I am less certain. In any other deck, I would never include a lifegain tapland, but a deck such as this could take advantage of the life gained from Scoured Barrens. Vault of Champions and Concealed Courtyard are too situational, but I would have no problem with Shattered Sanctum; Tainted Field and Temple of Silence are nice, but nothing spectacular, and what about Silent Clearing? Is it good, or does War Room render it obsolete?
What does everyone else say about this? How many dual lands should a two-colored EDH deck contain?

Utility Lands I would add: Temple of the False God, Radiant Fountain, Castle Ardenvale, Castle Locthwain, Command Tower, Caves of Koilos, Orzhov Basilica,Rogue's Passage, Seraph Sanctuary, Temple of Silence and Labyrinth of Skophos

Here ya go:
"Killer Queen," by Queen Marchesa
She keeps her Bloodthirsty Blade next
To her pretty Gorgon's Head
"Let's go Brandon," because
Monarchs don't like presidents
A built-around archenemy
For Atraxa and Arcades
At any time
A combat phase you can't decline
Deathtouch and opulence
Well-versed in rhetoric
Upon her Throne of Empires
Oooh, Parasitic Impetus
Curses and disturbances
To avoid assassination
She moved to the Temple of Silence
She relies on her Sleeper Agents
Met a man from Fiora
Just a general enforcer
Her scheming symmetries all
Lead to her Deadly Designs
Roguely through passages (hastily)
For cards she brings Monarch in
deflective but secretly nice?

Normally I like to go through the changes I make as one-for-one tradeouts, providing a rationale for why I'm taking this card out and putting this other one in. In this case, however - being that I haven't updated this deck in years - I'm changing out nearly a quarter of the deck, so making those one-for-one explanations doesn't make a ton of sense. This was the first commander deck that I ever attempted to build, and looking back at the original build, I think I spread myself a little thin on the the themes I wanted to run, so this overhaul is mostly about becoming more focused in what I want to accomplish, so instead of looking at individual switches, these are more-or-less the themes I'm either trying to drop vs. the ones I'm trying to reinforce.
Counter-magic/tempo: (Counterspell, Render Silent, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Capsize). Targeted removal (Utter End, Vindicate, Ethersworn Adjudicator). The overall idea here is going to be that I don't want to stop you from playing your cards. I don't want to kill your nice stuff. I want you to get your cards into play. That way I can take them.
Big creatures that first-time-commander-deck-builder me wanted to include just cuz they're Esper: (Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Sphinx Sovereign). Again, not bad cards really, but they're expensive and not entirely on-theme.
Inferior lands: (Temple of Deceit, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Silence, Dromar's Cavern, Esper Panorama). The temples I felt were the weakest of the dual lands I'm running. Between the lands that are going in, the fact that all these changes are bring my average mana value down 0.2 points, and the amount of mana rocks I'll be running, not only am I improving some of these lands slots, but I'm also running 2 fewer lands.
Other: Diabolic Tutor to be replaced by a better tutor effect for this deck. Merciless Eviction because while I still like board wipes, I don't wanna exile everything. Leyline of Anticipation. This one pains me a little, I may try to find a spot to get this back in sometime in the future. Acquire because there's not a guarantee that there'll be a good target for this. I'd hate to spend the mana just to steal someone's Sol Ring.

I agree with ShieldOfHolyShadows: your Manacurve end's to high.
Exchange Rampage of the Valkyries and Starnheim Unleashed for early interaction, either Discard: Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize or Removal: Dismember, Bloodchief's Thirst, Fatal Push (if you have the Fetchlands)
Also you probably can exchange one Temple of Silence for a Seraph Sanctuary to help you with your lifegain.
