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.)

I run a similar deck to this, but focusing on getting out Sephara, Sky's Blade and then making her indestructible with Aegis Angel. It's a bit of a different take (and now I kind of want Watcher of Spheres or Stormscape Familiar in mine.) Skyblinder Staff is one of my favorite underrated tricks for flying decks. Makes your creatures unblockable except by reach. I play a lot of multiplayer casual, so my curve is a bit higher. It's here if you're interested: Sephara's Flock

Destroyerbirb thanks for the upvote and the comment!
I got the Boros BFZ Hero of Goma Fada deck as my first introduction. It’s not my all time favorite card (Aegis Angel was from my first booster back and has sentimental value) but holds a place in my heart.
Glad to see someone else got into the game around the same time! Hope you benefited from the primer!

Massacar That certainly would work! I could see it in a Soul Sisters-type build to include the life gain aspect. Palisade Giant would be a duplicate effect (if high CMC), and Indestructibility would duplicate the second effect to increase consistency. It would require a bit more budget than I usually invest and make my meta quite cranky (They are not fans of my Sephara, Sky's Blade + Aegis Angel weenie flyers deck, or any of the many Selesnya decks I run with Shield of the Oversoul. Not that it stops me.) A lot of times I intentionally leave a deck weak to certain kinds of removal, especially where combo is concerned, to make it more fair. We do have an agreement that no one goes nuts on the field wipes. An occasional one is ok, but constant field wipes are not fun. We play budget casual/jank and casual EDH, often with younger and new players.

I would up the land count to 35-37 to make sure you hit land drops.
I’ve always liked Illusory Angel since it is the only mono blue angel I’ve ever seen.
Angelic Field Marshal is a good one for if you have Traft out.
Aegis Angel could synergize with Traft to keep him around.
I’ve got a Geist of Saint Traft deck focused of exaltion/aura voltron and an Aurellia angel tribal if you’d want to check those out. Although I don’t think I’ve put my Traft deck on tapped out yet.

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 :)
