Also, while these probably don't belong on the list, cards that do damage to all attacking creatures seem like a potential add. Such as - Wind Shear and Sandstorm I'm sure there are lots others, but I won't continue since they don't really fit.

Hi, I'm also a big fan of incorporating politics in EDH!
Here are some cards with a political element you might consider:
Nova Pentacle can disincentivize opponents from attacking you if you're controlling no creatures, because then the opponents have to target some of their own creatures.
Duelist's Heritage is a nice political card. It can incentivize your opponents to attack another opponent instead of you.

I have 2 Aurelia decks also. This one and I switch between equipments voltron, and the all creature build ...so really i just need to build a 3rd one but some people may think thats excessive. This one is great for games that go a little longer, would avoid it for faster metas though.
Gisela, the Broken Blade was in here for a while, but im still tweaking the list a bit. Id like to get the angel count back up a little bit, it seems to have dropped off for more removal and ramp. The truth is theres just so many angels that I want to run its tough to get them all in. In a perfect world there would be room to add Gisela, the Broken Blade, Firemane Avenger, Seraph of the Sword, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Angel of Finality, and Angel of the Dire Hour. I have been giving some thought to Brisela though, would love to get that going. Ive got 3 or 4 cards I want to cut, so we'll see what kinds of things I can get into those slots. Another thing to think about also, is focusing on life gain with things like Dawn of Hope, Angelic Accord etc. That would definitely be a reason to use Gisela.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice was until I started playing against Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow and realized how important it is to have a form of life gain in the deck, may also add in Mirrorpool or Bramble Sovereign so I can utilize the populate part too

Ahhh great to see a big army of angels, so +1 just for that!
That said, I think you should lower your average CMC a bit, since twelve 7+ drops can be problematic even in casual games (and almost half of your deck costs 5 or more to play anyway). As much as I love all those huge-ass angels, maybe you could replace some of them with cheap but powerful 4-5 drops like Battlegrace Angel (lifelink), Angel of Jubilation (lord + anti-black) or Seraph of the Sword, or if you have some more money available, then you have many more to choose from like Archangel of Tithes (combat control), Shalai, Voice of Plenty (hexproof for everyone), Restoration Angel (for re-triggering enter the battlefield effects, including Seraph Sanctuary), or the golden trio of lifelink angels: Baneslayer Angel, Archangel of Thune and Gisela, the Broken Blade.
As more concrete suggestions, I think Seraph of the Sword is better than both Serra Avenger (since you can't play her until turn 4 anyway) and Guardian of the Gateless. Also I would swap Angelic Arbiter for Archangel of Tithes or Battlegrace Angel, and take out Reya Dawnbringer and Angel of the Dire Hour for some of the others I mentioned.

Luminarch Ascension, Heirloom Blade, Herald's Horn, Vanquisher's Banner, Zendikar Resurgent, Profound Journey, Angel of Serenity, Karmic Guide, Sunblast Angel, Angel of the Dire Hour, and Marshal's Anthem. I have found great value with every card listed. Let me know if you need me to go more in depth.

Psssst: Angel of the Dire Hour < Lyra Dawnbringer. Because Angel doesn't do anything 90% of the time and requires you to leave up 7 mana! And then if no one attacks you just time walked yourself. Also Lyra is just rediculous.
