Archangel of Tithes Discussion

There's a couple suggestions to make:
Organize the cards differently so it is clear to see what types of cards are in the deck.
71 cards is too many. Try to keep it to 60
Angel of Jubilation would serve you well
Take out most of the non-angels as they won't be helpful for what you are trying to do.
Angelic Skirmisher is a must have

I absolutely love pillow fort strategies in Commander, and as a player with a pretty strong Gwafa Hazid Azorius pillow fort deck, I definitely have some strong recommendations.
As mentioned by others previously, Crawlspace is a stellar defensive card in EDH. Its power is twofold; first, it makes attacking you less efficient by reducing the number of creatures that can actually swing at you. Secondly, this only applies to you, which makes attacking other players MORE profitable for your opponents.
Archangel of Tithes is a sidegrade to Windborn Muse; it doesn't tax as much per creature, but it's got a bigger body, and it taxes for blockers, which is a pretty unique ability. Your mana base can probably handle the because you're so slanted towards white anyway.
Blazing Archon is like playing a nine-mana middle finger pointed against all your opponents. It doesn't get much more negatory than this.
Grand Arbiter Augustin IV straight-up taxes opponents, and provides a nice discount for the rest of your deck. Definitely draws a lot of hate, but since your opponents will be taxed so heavily, you're ready to defend yourself.
Aurification is another great pillow fort card that really shuts down opposing creatures. I'd say it's better than Dissipation Field since your opponents don't get the benefit of more enters-the-battlefield abilities, but DF hits things like Purphoros, God of the Forge (aka your deck's worst nightmare).
For more ideas, I have a long card-by-card description of my list here: The Price is Wrong - Gwafa Pillow Fort EDH

Archangel of Tithes is a pretty decent stall creature to add. Norn's Annex will compound the problem for everyone else on top of your Propaganda and Ghostly Prison. If you want the board state to become rush hour traffic in Los Angeles, try to use the ultimate ability of Dovin Baan or throw in a Winter Orb. Engulf the Shore and Cyclonic Rift would add to the hilarity.

Your deck needs to be able to recover from a board wipe and even a minor one like Drown in Sorrow would probably set you back. Personally I'd remove Intangible Virtue and add Mentor of the Meek to give you card draw, though you might consider Leyline of the Meek. Other token spells which are worth using - Spectral Procession and Gather the Townsfolk.
Hope that gives you some ideas.

Your mana curve is off (too many 2, 4 and 6 drops / not enough 1 drops) and you aren't running a play set (4x) of any card. If you want to make the deck more efficient then a few things should probably change...
For land since devotion is an easy sub-theme Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is almost an auto-include in mono-coloured decks. Also worth consideration is Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Drifting Meadow and New Benalia all offer some utility, you probably don't need more than 20 land.
Finally for creatures you have no drop creature, I would suggest 4x Perimeter Captain in that role. To make the space cut Staff of the Sun Magus and 2x Plains. You might want to look at Nyx-Fleece Ram, Hero of Bladehold / Archangel of Tithes (in preference to Aegis Angel) or if you want to spend money - Serra Ascendant!

I also would remove green, unless you switch to G/W with cards like Avacyn's Pilgrim, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Heron's Grace Champion, etc. To avoid mana issues, you could consider just adopting a more aggressive strategy like Boros Battalion. The goal being to play a swathe of aggressive beaters like Legion Loyalist, Daring Skyjek, Boros Elite, and Skyknight Legionnaire. Then, you just have a handful of angels like Aurelia, the Warleader sitting atop the curve. With some craftiness, you can fit other angels into the list, assuming you really love the tribal theme. Tajic, Blade of the Legion could become Archangel of Tithes, Warmind Infantry could become Emancipation Angel, and so on.
