I would say it probably needs a touch more removal so your game plan is not disrupted. I have my own angel deck which goes wide in typical Timmy fashion, however; it crumbles in a 3v1 scenario. I would maybe add one or two board wipes, staples removal spells like Return to Dust, Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile. a good board wipe needs to be versatile like Austere Command or can act as a really good deterrent such as Nevinyrral's Disk

Some good angels to get for this deck are the Admonition Angel, Linvala, Keeper of Silence and Iona, Shield of Emeria pus it would be a funny combo with your Helm of the Host. Another angel I would recommend is Dawnbreak Reclaimer since it is reanimation plus you can make deals with opponents to get your good stuff back. Grand Abolisher is a must have in any angel tribal since it is kind of annoying if all your high value angels are countered for 2 mana. While I like Crovax, Ascendant Hero, If you wanted to; Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is simply better and for more value plus it buffs all your creatures regardless and kills all your opponents 2/2's (which 90% of the time would be hatebears like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben or Ethersworn Canonist or any other annoying af enemy) plus it kills Arcum Dagsson so theres bonus points (seriously, screw that Dagsson guy).

in terms of mana rocks, Sol Ring is a staple, to get some of the higher end Angels I would recommend mana rocks such as Thran Dynamo or Worn Powerstone since adding one coloured mana in a mono colour deck such as angels simply doesn't do enough. adding tons of colourless mana to pay the generic cost of angels is worth it though.

Overall I would say this deck gets an upvote for how fun it looks and for potential and versatility.

Surprised Strionic Resonator wasn't mentioned in the alternate wincons of the deck. It's combo with Paradox Engine is pretty famous among Arcum Dagsson players, and it can act as a secondary Isochron Scepter in some variations of the combo. Similarly many variants run Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies in their lists.

Thoughts on Mycosynth Golem or Arcum Dagsson? If you make Arcum an artifact to copy the ability and have 2 creatures to sac, you can grab two artifacts from your deck.

Kaizer_Marano yes, sometimes without even using any planeswalkers! Only a couple of weeks ago I was introducing a newer player to EDH and let him use a variety of my decks while I piloted others to show how they all work differently and how your commander and colour choices can influence how a deck behaves. Anyway, I got out an early Arcum Dagsson and while I carefully didn't pick out any infinite combo pieces he pretty much won the game for me. In larger multiplayer versus more experienced opponents I actually try to avoid singular infinite parts - eg. Cranial Plating rings fewer alarm bells than Nim Deathmantle so people let it resolve to their detriment. There are just enough reasonably sized creatures plus ways to copy them to get in a beatdown; just enough ways to produce tokens for swarming tactics; just enough removal to deal with a few big problems etc. In fact, by choosing a variety cards I like rather than focusing on Breya-centric combo win with more tutors I believe I have lost some tempo and perhaps lowered my outright win percentage but created a more well-rounded deck.

Unfortunately $100 doesn't go far when talking about a completely tuned deck to be able to compete with decks winning turn 5-6. I'd probably go with something cheap like Xenagos, God of Revels that can eliminate one person by turn 5-6 to feel like you are participating and effecting the board. I would then focus on building something with really strong cards that are not super expensive but would still go over your budget at the moment.

$104 (both deck prices are what you can buy them for right now from TCGPlayer since tapped out pricing is temperamental.) Xenagos, God of Revels deck that you could make some cuts or just use big dumb beaters you already own to cut the price under $100.

Xenagos, God of "You're Swinging with a HOW BIG?"

$372 Arcum Dagsson deck that will steamroll turn 5-6 decks and you can pick up piecemeal over time.

Soldevi Machinist, Vedalken Engineer and Renowned Weaponsmith are actually powerful in this deck as well Arcum Dagsson is way too powerful. Sunstone is kinda silly but it will save you a few games sometimes.

You want BROKEN?!?!?! Here are a few broken creatures. Narset, Enlightened Master, Arcum Dagsson, Athreos, God of Passage with shadowborn apostles, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice infect, Karametra, God of Harvests Enchantress goes broken with pillow forting and I can give you a goo combo for it if interested, Fumiko the Low Blood + goblins, and last but not least Sliver Overlord. And this is in my opinion but just remember. You can have a $1,000 deck but still lose to a $200-300 deck.
