Hey my friend ! Sweet deck :) I see you run Convolute or Quench ; but why don't you use Mana Leak ? The card is cheap, 10 times better and one of the best counterspell in the format. Same is true for Memory Lapse .

Okay, I have a few cards I question.
Battle Mastery doesn't really seem to fit the deck
Azorius Chancery is just bad
Convolute could be replaced by any auto-counter that also costs three mana (like
Into the Roil is not an effective bounce spell for its cost
And then a few to recommend.
Icefall Regent is a very good fit for this deck.
And then Mana Drain is just boss.

Things to add:
Things to remove:
Counterspells like: Condescend that ask a player to X are okay to stay, they are the kind you want along with the unconditional ones.
Hope it helps fam.

You said in your thread in the deck help forum that you wanted to get it down to 66, so that is 18 cuts.
Trespasser's Curse - Curses feel unnecessarily antagonistic and this one doesn't do much.
Curator's Ward - Unlikely to ever draw you cards.
Ashes of the Abhorrent - Not good unless your meta is very graveyard heavy.
Prowler's Helm - Not a very good piece of evasion equipment.
Wing Shards - Bad except against voltron.
Nightmare's Thirst - Hardly ever going to kill anything of importance.
Mana Leak - The type of games you are likely to play with this deck tax counters won't matter.
Convolute - See above.
Healing Grace - 1 shot small amounts of lifegain aren't worth a card slot.
Dark Ritual - Rituals aren't great in commander unless it is to ramp directly into a victory and you have no insta-wins.
Vampire Sovereign - ETB doesn't justify paying the price for the body in a non-blink deck.
Angel of the God-Pharaoh - 6 mana 4/4 isn't worth it just because it has cycling.
Diamond Mare - Going to gain you much less life than you think it will.
Underworld Coinsmith - Effects aren't strong enough.
Bonus round, these cards are all relatively weak and I really think that maybe you wanted angel tribal and didn't want to say it was a tribal deck.

I've always wanted to see this combo work, and I stumbled across this deck when I briefly named my deck (now Aggresive Prison Sex) Black Sabbath. One of the best bands in the history of metal, by the way. Now I'm assuming that this is budget so I'm going to keep these suggestions frugal. Instead of Convolute put Mana Leak or Counterspell, although it seems that Blue isn't a necessary color in here. I'd recommend taking it out completely and putting in more black removal, like Dismember, Geth's Verdict, Grasp of Darkness, Fatal Push, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Fleshbag Marauder, and Walk the Plank. I personally don't think that Priest of the Blood Rite is necessary, it might just hurt you after they kill the demon. Grave Titan, Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn, Phyrexian Obliterator, Skinrender, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and such. I'm just naming good cards you should consider now, Hymn to Tourach, Torment of Hailfire, Sinkhole, Geralf's Messenger, Dread Wanderer, Diregraf Ghoul, and MOST IMPORTANTLY Dark Ritual. I just think a deck called Black Sabbath should be mono-black. Sorry if I rambled, I just want this deck to kick ass. No deck named after an amazing band should have to lose even once. Good luck
