Ashiok, Dream Render's hybrid mana symbols give the card blue/black color identity and thus makes it ineligible in an Orzhov deck.
Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are creature removal that should be strongly considered for any deck that can run them. The low, low CMC and instant speed combined with exiling the target remain unmatched. You can easily make space for Swords [if you're only going to run one, pick Swords first as the additional matters far less than the land granted] by cutting Fruit of Tizerus. Despite being able to recur it with escape, doing only 2 damage to one opponent in a multiplayer format is far too little return for your investment of mana and cards in graveyard.
Sol Ring is flat out the best card in the format so unless you have a house rule in the local meta that it is banned, you should be running it.
I don't know that you're running enough auras or equipment to get much mileage out of either Sram, Senior Edificer or Danitha Capashen, Paragon. If you want to go this route, you can consider finding space for: Darksteel Mutation as it is good turning opposing commanders into statues, Blackblade Reforged, Sword of the Animist for some ramp, Swiftfoot Boots for the haste and protection, Whispersilk Cloak for evasion and protection, Angelic Destiny because a flying 3 headed dog that is now also an angel is just awesome.
Other inspiration can be drawn from the listings at EDHREC but so far the handful of people submitting decks have gone very stax-y and that may not be your cup of tea.

Slicor01, thanks for the feedback! I totally understand where your coming from. Keep in mind though, only 13/99 are artifacts where 24/99 are enchantments. What's more is that Rancor and Angelic Destiny will come back to my hand, most of the time, if Tuvasa dies. I might consider running a few less equipment, or do as you suggest, run rafiq.
With that being said, I really like Tuvasa's draw ability. The short comings of aura's are that they generally are difficult to get back once the creature dies, which is why I figured some equipment would help ensure that Tuvasa has something to come back to when she leaves the field. Cards like Sigarda's Aid and All That Glitters blend well into the build. There is also one thing that equipment can get you that none of the enchantments in these colors can, and that is haste. Hopefully that clarifies some things about cards choice, please feel free to suggest some alternative cards to replace equipment if you know of any of similar caliber.

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
