I'd suggest Kaalia of the Vast as a commander. This gives you access to Abhorrent Overlord, Luminous Angel, and Utvara Hellkite as well as awesome swarm oriented cards like Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Angelic Skirmisher as well as Warmonger Hellkite and Moonveil Dragon. This could make for a cool flavor as a token deck as well as be able to produce stronger and more efficient token production. Descent into Madness and Smokestack are just nasty clear abilities when you do run massive token production in these colors. Krenko, Mob Boss works better with lots of goblins, but is still efficient by himself. If you do go for more goblins you could add Voracious Dragon as an extra win condition.
I got the griselbrand, now what about a FOIL Avacyn, Angel of Hope ? I'm able to trade for one, he wants my playset of Thoughtseize (Theros) for it. I know value wise I'm getting a little in this offer but my little experience says I'll end up on the losing end down the road. Keep the Thoughtseize or trade??

Playtest against your deck without the sideboard: Turn 8 i had Bloodsoaked Champion Consuming Aberration Altar of the Brood Duskmantle Guildmage and 6 mana. You played Avacyn, Angel of Hope that you searched with Time of Need the turn before with your 8 mana, then had no more plays, you had your Phyrexian Unlife on the field so i couldnt kill you. You ended your turn and i drew a Mind Grind, I cast it for 6 mana, Consuming Aberration's ability proc'd and you milled 1 land. Then you milled the rest of your library because you did not have 4 lands left. The Platinum Angel was in the last 17 cards of your library. Turn 9 milled out woot!
So all game i was afraid you would draw the angel and make it impossible for me to win, so a way to search for it would be really valuable, otherwise you're just hoping for it to be drawn. Maybe increase the number of them platinum angels?
Here are some suggestions on cards I'd personally remove from your build. I don't know your meta (Play group, what commanders they use etc,) so I'm going to recommend all around cards..
Cryptic Gateway That Iona been sitting in your hand? Tap two angels and drop her.
Riding Red Hare Personal favorite. Basically goes unblocked.
Victory's Herald Lifelink!
Kor Haven For those pesky voltron EDH builds
Spectra Ward This.. is so hilarious.. put this on Avacyn..
That's all I've got for now.. If you'd like more ideas, check out my build and upvote if you like it:
You have a point, the only thing that would really be worth cheating into play is Avacyn, Angel of Hope. While I'm throwing out random suggestions, have you considered Nahiri, the Lithomancer's +1 and it's synergy with Skullclamp?
Yesterday we finally got our EDH league off the ground for the first game. We learned that 7 people in a pod is a lot to keep track of, and to not let my Mayael the Anima deck get out of control.
I at one point had Mayael, a Seedborn Muse, a Knight of the Reliquary and an Admonition Angel on the board at the same time. Add Avacyn, Angel of Hope wearing a Lightning Greaves, Sigarda, Host of Herons and Novablast Wurm and they were feeling pretty dejected.
Unfortunately, if you don't attack the blue player when you can, you get hit with Wash Out calling ...Damn blue players...
What kind of Board States have you created that turned the game into an impromptu game of Archenemy?
