Angelic Chorus Discussion

So from what im getting this seems to be forming around multiple instances of gaining life, which then proc's OTB effects. With that in mind I have a few suggestions:

I like what I see here. You definitely went for a more combo-centric Death and Taxes deck rather than going for an all out Darien Soldier Tribal deck. I like it!. It's definitely one of the better decks that I have seen and is definitely geared more towards winning. It's how you build a decent mono-white deck. DO NOT TAKE OUT YOUR STRONG HATE CARDS. They are the strength of this deck.
Cards I would consider taking out is Akroma's Memorial, Teferi's Protection (because your permanents phase out and it's a dead card in your hand most of the time), Comeuppance, Stoneforge Mystic and pretty much all of your equipment except protection like Swiftfoot Boots and Darksteel Plate. I know it goes well with your Historic cards but to me, white is much better and going wide and bulking up that way then stacking equipment that your opponent can chump block for days. Plus your commander is a whimpy 3/3 for 6. You want the ability.
I would add in more removal like Wrath of God and Terminus to go all out control and lock the game out. More card draw so your big mana doesn't go to waste, you have more answers and you can win the attrition battles of trading 1 for 1 and out-value your opponents with board wipes. Angelic Chorus and Archangel of Thune would be neat additions as well. Cathars' Crusade+Altar of Dementia is a good finisher.Hero of Bladehold can provide some early pressure. Mother of Runes seems like it would be perfect with this deck. Iona?
Out (my opinion):
Hammer of Nazahn
Thran Temporal Gateway? Look at your mana curve. Mostly under 4 anyways.
Settle the Wreckage
Platinum Angel (Any removal spell kills it). Not worth 7 mana
In: 2 plains Wrath of God, Terminus, Cathars' Crusade, Knight of the White Orchid, Hero of Bladehold, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Staff of Nin, Carnage Altar, Archangel of Thune, Mother of Runes, Condemn Oblivion Ring, Cauldron of Souls
Not trying to burst your bubble or anything, but I would not take your deck to tournaments. You'll be sadly dissapointed. It's not nearly as versatile as say Mono blue, mono black or Simic. Board wipes and removal kill you even with all the protection that you do have. All decks except blue are very open to Cyclonic Rift and we know that will always be a thing. Your deck is nasty don't get me wrong, but you are going up against 3 other players that aren't casual in tournament play. Try it for sure, but don't get your hopes up if you run into a Zur or mono blue Teferi deck.

What do you think of cards like Evil Twin or Prosperous Pirates. Both of them offer some nice blink options. The turn you play the pirates they generate four treasure tokens if you blink them almost paying for themselves as well as providing more mana over time if you go for it. You can get a ton of health from Angelic Chorus with some nice combos like an eerie interlude providing a huge sum of hp after dodging a wipe or panharmonicon doubling the triggers for nice amounts of life. A really nice removal creature is Phyrexian Ingester hitting your opponents with exiles. Personally I love running Sepulchral Primordial to grab a bunch of my enemies creatures.

There are a lot of cards here I don't agree with, but stepping back and seeing what you've done as a whole, I like it a lot. Its inspiring to say the least. I hate the control pillow fort route with oloro, and he's been my only commander, i've been playing him for 5 years. I think i've gone about every route possible, and yet i've seen some combos in here I have not seen done before in an oloro deck.. Karmic Guide hitting Restoration Angel blinking Karmic Guide to hit something like Clone copying the Restoration Angel and just keep the ETB triggers coming with things like Angelic Chorus, get that life gain in!

Runic Armasaur has been added.
Angelic Chorus was underwhelming and left the battlefield.

I’ve been playing a similar list to this and it’s been much better than I expected. Arcades does draw a ton of hate, and as a result I’ve tweaked it to include Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves along with Enlightened Tutor.
Another couple additions I made were Angelic Chorus and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. Both of those have done some amazing work. And then, due to their success, I also added Feed the Pack and Phyrexian Processor. Those last two may not stay, but I’m testing them now. I have once gotten the Feed the Pack and Tree of Redemption combo with Angelic Chorus on the battlefield, effectively doubling my life total and creating a ton of wolves. They were board wiped but the lifegain remained and I ended up winning largely because of it. I am also considering Aetherflux Reservoir as an alternate wincon simply because those two life gainers above synergize so well with all the cheap defenders. This does start to take the deck in another direction, but it works really well for only an investment of a couple cards.
What to take out for all these? Always the hard part, right? It’s hard to say because everyone has different preferences, but I’m not a fan of the cards that pump defense, especially at sorcery speed. So that’s a couple of spots to start. There’s also a couple defenders in your list that I think are just a bit too weak or too much mana for their body. I think Hobby mentioned a couple of those...
I’ll try to get my full list posted here soon for more ideas if you’re interested.

Slagwurm Armor:I like the card, but the problem is I'd have to take a card out, any idea what card(s) I should take out?
Oathsworn Giant:It is a nice anthem effect, but since it is on a creature it'll get removed easily. I'd rather play an enchantment or artifact.
Forbidding Watchtower: Definitely! I love myself some flavor!
Geist of the Archives: Depends if I'll find a wall to take out.
Sight of the Scalelords:This is what I meant with the oathsworn giant. Nice card.
Forgotten Ancient: But he doesn't have defender though.
Bramble Sovereign: I already thought about this one, but it will depend if I want to spend the money on it.

Looks like a cool deck. Have you considered Angelic Chorus? A little costly at 5 CMC for that low of a curve but it would trigger off the 4/4 tokens.
