Enchantment — Aura
Enchanted creature gets +4/+4, has flying and first strike, and is an Angel in addition to its other types.
When enchanted creature dies, return Angelic Destiny to its owner's hand.
Angelic Destiny Discussion

Angelic Destiny is a nice card. No synergy. Try to think how it supports the theme and the majority of your cards.
Chalice of Life Flip is slow, but is immune to most board wipes sooo its good and bad. If you are going to run this, you need an "enters the battlefield gain x life" such as Cathedral Sanctifier as a simple example. I will follow up on this below.
Choice one, having both will slow you down A LOT.
Also, its considered bad taste to link your deck on another decks comments. Next time message.

Not a bad idea. I think auras are widely overlooked and I see potential here.
I think there's room for the devotion mech to be strengthened for the benefit of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , and some room to even make the deck somewhat more competitive if you're interested.
I would consider cards like Worship , which become easier to cast with Hero of Iroas already maxed out in the MB, and Leyline of Sanctity which provides 2 white symbols for devotion to white. Each offer quite a frustrating foil to a good number of and burn and hate decks.
In order to make room, I would suggest boarding or removing at least 1 or more Hyena Umbra and Angelic Destiny each. I also suggest a slight thinning out of auras in general, try for no more than 20, to offer the player a contingent against hand flooding uncastable auras early game, and thus, mulligans.
Umbra Mystic makes Hyena Umbra a fair bit redundant, you have plenty offering first strike as it is, making first strike also I think a bit redundant, so even replacing Hyena Umbra with stronger, more mana costly white auras which can benefit from Hero of Iroas , would be another suggestion here.
This is the most painful suggestion, due to the $$ involved... If you can get your hands on 4x Stoneforge Mystic and at least 1x Sword of Fire and Ice , that there is a great combo for both drawing cards and dealing with decks with aura removal. I would recommend thy be at least in the sideboard.

Hell yeah! Another heroics deck! I have one too but Daxos the Returned commands mine, same idea tho.
Some creatures that I don't see here that could benefit the deck are Celestial Ancient , Danitha Capashen, Paragon Dawnbringer Charioteers , Graceblade Artisan , Lagonna-Band Trailblazer , Sram, Senior Edificer , Wingsteed Rider , Umbra Mystic and my personal favorite Thran Golem .
Some enchantments I really like in my deck are Celestial Mantle , Daybreak Coronet , Divine Favor , Face of Divinity , Griffin Guide , Hope Against Hope , On Serra's Wings Angelic Destiny and Bonds of Faith can go offensive or defensive. You should look into some umbras like Felidar Umbra and Hyena Umbra .
I realize I've only suggested white cards but that's the only overlapping color our decks share.
Sorry to spam this comment with so much but I got excited. I love the heroic mechanic and I'm glad to see other people utilizing it. A big enchanted +1 from me!

emlit thanks for the suggestions! I really like Angelic Destiny , as it helps with devotion for Iroas and it is recurable. If Baneslayer Angel wasn't as expensive I'd consider it haha but maybe after some testing I might have to splurge on it. Legion's Initiative is one I was looking at originally but cut for some other random enchantments so I might have to test with it. I like cards like Prison Term ...just not that it makes everyone paint you as a target haha

I run an Aureila build (Cardolan) which is geared a bit differently, but here are some suggestions which work well for me in Boros:
Angelic Destiny - Make anything an immediate threat; the recursion is ridiculous
Baneslayer Angel - Unfairly good, if you want to spend the money for her
Legion's Initiative - Great defense against board wipes
Prison Term - Underutilized card in EDH, but a real beast; use on Commanders to make people hate you

Hi! I really like your deck. What about Stoneforge Mystic and Enlightened Tutor ? Sigarda's Aid is also useful in any Voltron deck. It's vital to keep Ojutai untapped so take a look at Accorder's Shield and Cathar's Shield . Bladed Bracers must be used with Angelic Destiny . Invocation of Saint Traft is among my favorite cards in Azorius colors. Good luck in brewing!

Some cards to think about; Paladin of Atonement , Together Forever , Matter Reshaper , Angelic Destiny , Arena Rector (You'd have to add at least one more PW for that one I think), Demon of Dark Schemes
You also don't have Path to Exile , was that on purpose? Vindicate might be good as well. Liliana of the Veil ? Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip might actually be dope. That emblem would be nuts. Sorin, Solemn Visitor isn't terrible.
