Nice. I wanted to make an Angelic Accord deck a few years back but never got around to it. Heres a few cards that might be worth considering.

Captured Sunlight

Faith's Fetters

Goldenglow Moth

Narrow Escape

Loxodon Hierarch

Ritual of Rejuvenation

Solemn Offering

Idyllic Tutor

If the dollar limit is arbitrary, and you could push it up some there are a few other gems like Nyx-Fleece Ram and Ajani's Mantra that can give you a little life each turn. I like the theme behind the deck, I think you can come down on mana costs with a chunk of your creatures and get some more effects to gain the life in spurts each turn. If you would like the idea, I think making it green white would really help too. Heros Reunion Captured Sunlight and then green guys like Jaddi Offshoot Grazing Gladehart and Retreat to Kazandu. Some solid lands to include are Radiant Fountain and Kabira Crossroads. Again if you add green these get even better with Selesnya Sanctuary Blossoming Sands and Graypelt Refuge.

Some cards I think that you could take out are the Modular and Sunburst cards that you have in the deck. Unless I'm missing a specific rule, I don't think that those cards will trigger Ramos, Dragon Engine since those cards don't change color based on the different types of mana spent to cast them. The ones like Arcbound Wanderer and Clearwater Goblet are still colorless and therefore wouldn't give Ramos any counters when cast.

Other than those, depending on what exactly you want to accomplish with the deck, you might want to consider taking out some of the cascade/storm cards. Captured Sunlight, Sprouting Vines, and Bituminous Blast are the ones that I would consider taking out first.

It looks like this might be one of your anticipated win conditions, but I think taking out Sphinx-Bone Wand and Mirari could help to focus your deck a little bit.

Overall this looks like a really fun deck to pilot! I hope these suggestions help.

Cards do what they say, no more and no less. Strionic Resonator's rules text doesn't put any restrictions on what kinds of triggered abilities it can work with, so that means it can work with any triggered ability, even one on a spell such as Captured Sunlight.

Yes you can. There isn't a reason why you couldn't

Adding 2 Sage's Knowledge would allow you to reuse your Exhume and you could cascade into it with Captured Sunlight giving you effectively 6 copies of Exhume.

FUL I made the adjustments, this looks solid, much more refined! Getting rid of Scribe of the Mindful and substituting white for Captured Sunlight was an excellent choice.

Fantastic suggestions!

FUL on 4 Color Cascade Exhume

just thinking about something: you can try to substitute Scribe of the Mindful with Grazing Kelpie, so you can put back Exhume in your library and shuffle it with some fetch land. This should allow you to remove Scribe of the Mindful and Deny Reality and all the lands in favor of Captured Sunlight. you have to add , yes, but in this way you are sure that you will always find Exhume when you cast a cascade spell, because cascade triggers other cascade ability, if i'm right, and the Grazing Kelpie costs 4, so you're not going to cast it wiht Captured Sunlight.
