Creature — Angel
Flying (This creature can't be blocked except by creatures with flying or reach.)
When Aegis Angel enters the battlefield, another target permanent gains indestructible for as long as you control Aegis Angel. (Effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it. A creature with indestructible can't be destroyed by damage.)

That Witch's Cottage probably isn't going to fire off very often given that you don't have many swamps in the deck [without finding Urborg and I don't see a lot of ways to fetch that up]. Mortuary Mire doesn't have the restrictions the Cottage does but performs the same task [sadly will always come into play tapped].
I'll second the addition of Reconnaissance as its a very low CMC way to keep your commander out of harm's way while still triggering her on-attack ability.
You have a handful of cards here that I've tried in various decks of my own and have found pretty underwhelming: Aegis Angel found this usually set me up for a 2 for 1 as opponents would Plow her [insert instant speed removal of choice here] during combat, remove the indestructible and I'd lose the protected creature too, Platinum Angel seems great but found opponents were willing to leave it there until they had their win set up and then it would go away, Resolute Archangel awesome exactly the first 2 times I played it, Angelic Accord needed more build around to make it work.
I like Liliana's Contract but not really enough demons to have much chance to work. Conspiracy could let you enable this without needing to rework the creature base. Still, a little on the janky side without Demonic Tutor or the like to pull it together consistently.
You could probably still use another way or two of making Kaalia unblockable, say Whispersilk Cloak or the like.

@lil_cheez thanks dude,
yeah, i actually want to get 37 lands in (36 normal ones + Cabal Coffers ), to ensure always having a good mana base. i already run Lightning Greaves , since it has no equip costs, and i don't have any cards that i want to target Kaalia of the Vast with (except Mother of Runes ). i prefer running Hammer of Purphoros over a 2nd Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots since it doesn't cost me an additional mana to attack with kaalia once i play her, plus i also run Hall of the Bandit Lord for the haste effect. As for Rakdos the Defiler : i actually don't usually attack with him a second time, so i don't have to sacrifice anything myself. there are some exceptions where it might be worth attacking again, but those are pretty rare, i usually keep him as a blocker, or as a sacrifice for Razaketh, the Foulblooded . Aegis Angel looks interesting, maybe i'll add it, but since i already have Avacyn, Angel of Hope , it doesn't benefit me that much. but yeah, i will add 1 (or preferably 2) more lands, i just have to decide which card(s) to remove. but thank you for the suggestions :)

Nice deck pal!!
I'd take Hammer of Purphoros out for Swiftfoot Boots , more protection for Kaalia and gives her haste all alike (I assume she is the creature in the deck that more needs haste, so adding hexproof is neat)
Aegis Angel is no Avacyn but hits in the air and can protect Kaalia as well. I'd take off Rakdos the Defiler for her. I see that Rakdos is sick when you bring him with Kaalia as he won't trigger for you, but after that he is just too risky!
I'd also add one more land. I've had bad experiences with 35, but 36 is okay. Maybe for Wayfarer's Bauble ?

i'm noticing some problems that you have with too little recursion and too little in the ways of protecting her from targeted removal. cards like Faith's Reward , Second Sunrise , Resurrection and False Defeat are really good to make sure your creatures come back when you get blown up after you summon your god emperor angel. you also are mono white so the problem with that is your card draw is very limited to really get going. take a look at cards like Mind's Eye , Scroll Rack + Land Tax . it's a great way to draw 3 a turn for one mana. Staff of Nin is a good passive draw for you every turn and you should absolutely look at putting The Immortal Sun in your deck. card is nuts and fucks on planeswalkers at the same time which only really affects one card in your deck. other cards that will help with your voltron strategy are various cards like Steelshaper's Gift , Open the Vaults , Stonehewer Giant and Stoneforge Mystic . various equipments that are really good for what you wanna do are things like Champion's Helm , Darksteel Plate , Whispersilk Cloak , any of the sword of cards (just gonna put a link to all the sword of cards of your choice all but body and mind are sweet https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?name=+%5Bsword%5D+%5Bof%5D+%5Band%5D), Batterskull , Sword of Vengeance Hammer of Nazahn . certain creatures that are just good stuff that you should think about are Selfless Squire , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Karmic Guide , Reveillark , Linvala, Keeper of Silence also look at putting in Nahiri, the Lithomancer for a good planeswalker for equipment
cards i'm seeing that are just meh: Aegis Angel , Resolute Archangel , Banisher Priest , Fiend Hunter , Herald of the Host (doesn't really do anything to make your commander the one shot machine you want), Deathless Angel , Oracle's Vault (becomes to easily blown up right after you put all the work into making it work), Emancipation Angel , Divine Visitation (i get why you have it there for the 1/1 spirits you make, but it's not worth it), Requiem Angel .
other then that you just trim the fat of cards that don't help make brisela your one shot machine you're looking for. hope this helped!

In general, my feedback is that you have too many one-shot lifegain effects for small amounts (1-3 life). These don't do enough - you have to have multiple other cards on board before they really help you/hurt others.
Cards to cut:
- Angel of Mercy - Angel of the Dawn - Angel of the God-Pharaoh - Seraph of the Suns - Serra Angel - Urgoros, the Empty One - Vampire Sovereign - Dark Ritual - Healing Grace - Fountain of Renewal - Manalith - Prowler's Helm - Behind the Scenes - Ill-Gotten Inheritance - Trespasser's Curse - Dovin Baan
A few cards to think about adding:
Last, I'll just note that Oloro is already not a beloved commander, and you're playing a lot of counter magic. You might want to think about inserting some W/U pillowfort, cause everyone is going to be coming for you.
