I am creating a Red-White commander deck using Gisela as my commander. I noticed that my deck is incredibly weak against a deck with any sort of indestructible creature. I know of the board sweeper Terminus, but I was wondering if red/white has any other tricks up its sleeve to get rid of tricky creatures. I'm looking for both sweepers and target-specific cards.

There are a variety of general answers for indestructible permanents:
White is probably the strongest color for dealing with indestructible permanents after they've resolved. Some of your options are:
Colorless cards worth noting:
The most effective answer is to learn to use the Gatherers Advanced Search to search for keywords in the rules sacrifice, exile, gain control, then exclude cards that are not red, white, or colorless*. You will get some false positives, but it is a start.
Although toughness reduction is not particularly white or red (which does gets +/- effects, though), you could look at creatures with Wither or Infect. In control-stealing, red has many temporary stealing spells and effects with stuff like Act of Treason, Blind with Anger, Grab the Reins, Mark of Mutiny, Threaten, Tibalt, Traitorous Blood, Zealous Conscripts... White has the non-time limited Preacher, though.
