Also Tamiyo, Collector of Tales would be even cheaper/faster and even more diverse.

ConstantVigilance I don't think you'll find one unifying creature type to cover all guilds, unless we're talking humans, because humans are as plentiful and diverse as they appear in the real world.
Demons are black aligned creatures. Dragons are red, Beasts are green, and so forth for many of the stereotypical creature types. All splashes into other colors occasionally but not enough to warrant an entire cycle dedicated to it without a really good reason. If we ever visited Serra's realm - a realm made by Serra the Benevolent that she populated with mainly angels she created as the guardians and human worshipers. Serra's realm got corrupted by the influence of Phyrexia (mainly black aligned), so the normally white-aligned angels could be influenced to draw on other types of mana, thinking in the lines of Innistrad's top angels Sigarda, Host of Herons, Bruna, Light of Alabaster and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. But that would hardly make sense for the Ravnica guilds.
Another choice for a diverse creature type could be elemental - as they can be both beings of pure mana (Cavalier of Dawn / Omnath, Locus of the Roil) or beings of a specific elemental type (air/water is often blue, earth/fire is red, earth can be green, tree is green).
As Boza said; on Ravnica finding angels outside white, white-red and to a smaller extend white-black (there's 3 over 3 blocks) is impossible. As such I don't think we should attribute the guilds' characteristics on this cycle, if ConstantVigilance wants to keep the unifying creature type.
If you'd rather ditch the unifying creature type, here's a few suggestions for replacing creature types - you may need to change some stats and keyword abilities to better match these.

I think the ramp in this deck (Wolfwillow Haven, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove) is really unnecessary. At the top of your curve, you only have 6 five-drops (two of which should be taken out - Cavalier of Dawn isn't that good). You could add some cheap enchantments (Sentinel's Eyes is nice, because it's repeatable) to replace the ramp.
You maybe need more lands. 23 is a pretty low count, but if you don't have much at the top of your curve you might not need more than 24. On the subject of lands, more basics are needed. Fabled Passage is totally unnecessary in a two-color deck. Field of Ruin is rarely relevant, but if you have enough colored sources, I don't see why not. Same sort of thing with Temple of Plenty. Tapped lands are bad, but if you find that you have openings to play lands tapped, why not?
Your sideboard could use some regularity. One-ofs are rarely worth it in a non-Fae of Wishes deck. Find some cards that are particularly good against bad matchups, and have 3-4 of each of them.

Now, if we went for the white weenie route, Conclave Tribunal is a must. There is another route we could go, which involves dropping blue and going full-on white weenie. Reverent Hoplite would be more effective there, but isn't horrible here. Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis gets you a ton of tokens repeatedly.
