Descend upon the Sinful Discussion

Other considerations: Possibly consider running more removal. Grasp of Fate, Oblivion Ring, etc may be good adds. The will help with enchantments, which are pretty prominent in the format. Look for cards that say 'each opponent' to maximize value. Since you're so heavy on CMC, Armageddon worries me... thinking it might set you back further than your opponents. Crucible of Worlds is awesome, but you aren't running many 'fetch' type lands to get value off it, unless I'm missing something. Definately like Rogue's Passage for you build. Descend upon the Sinful also exiles, not saying it's a bad thing, but ALL creatures? That'll kill your commander's ability. Maybe run Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares instead. That way you can choose the problematic creature (or indestructible) and leave the rest for grave robbing.

Considering replacing Descend upon the Sinful with Cathars' Crusade

Find that HP altered Jitte FTW/trade ;)

In addition to Comeuppance, Settle the Wreckage is helpful, as are some cards to smooth out combat, like Reconnaissance, High Ground, and Serra's Blessing. Flicker cards like Ghostway can give you an out during combat, as well, but will drop your equipment. Mark of Asylum might be good.

Holy Day, Dawn Charm, Riot Control, Encircling Fissure, Harmless Assault, and Pollen Lullaby can nerf combat damage for a turn. Something like Fumigate or Descend upon the Sinful can save you and add some value other wraths don't (like Wrath of God and Day of Judgment).

W does not have a ton of card draw. Maybe Inheritance and Slate of Ancestry? Possible counters include Dawn Charm, Rebuff the Wicked, Inspiration, Mana Tithe and Lapse of Certainty.

Ajani Goldmane and Ajani Steadfast can speed up your damage with counters. Healer of the Pride can net you some life. Brimaz, King of Oreskos, is just over $10, but may be useful here.

You can also slow things down with Ghostly Prison, Rule of Law, and Worship.

Other protection spells and combos exist, but might be too narrow to use here. I do like Solemnity + Phyrexian Unlife + Force Bubble + Greater Auramancy or Karmic Justice.

I like the deck over all. I think it's pretty neat that your deck has an underlying "angel tribal" sub-theme to it. If you would like to expand that theme a bit then you could focus on more tribal synergies as well, like adding Bruna, the Fading Light and Herald of War. Also in your cat deck you have Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator which I believe are better suited for this deck.

The big problem I am seeing with this deck overall is that your instants and sorcerys are a bit lacking, especially for red white, and your creature mana curve is really high. Some of the mana problems go away with the amount of rocks you run and if you switch to tribal angels you can use the artifacts and Herald of War to alleviate that a bit. Another problem is that most of your lands enter tapped.

To fix these things you could do as such (if you have the money or desire to):

-Desolation Giant (you're better off with a normal wrath)

-Jareth, Leonine Titan (doesn't have flying or reach which makes him worse)

-Kalemne's Captain (to much mana. If you have enough to monstrous, play an angel)

-Warchief Giant (this card is great, but you might want Angelic Skirmisher or Aegis Angel instead. Up to you really)

-Ancient Amphitheater (you wont be running enough giants for this to be worth it)

-Some of the cycling lands. You don't need 5. (probably Drifting Meadow & Smoldering Crater)

-Comeuppance (4 drop instant is a lot in this deck)

-Manabarbs (I like the idea, but you will need to tap many more lands than anyone else)

-Boros Keyrune (Boros Cluestone is better & it isn't worth 3 mana)

-Loxodon Warhammer (Great card, but not really useful in this high cost deck)

-Tamiyo's Journal (Too slow for this deck)

-Whispersilk Cloak (Most of your creatures already have flying)

+Bruna, the Fading Light

+Herald of War

+Angelic Skirmisher

+Generator Servant (Good mana + haste, and Sun Titan target)

+Path of Ancestry

+Hanweir Battlements (haste is good, enters untapped, don't need but could add Hanweir Garrison if you want to)

+Seraph Sanctuary (life gain is nice & angel synergy)

+Deflecting Palm (just a better Comeuppance)

+Defy Death (5 mana for an angel)

+Marshal's Anthem (anthems and brings back a bunch of creatures)

+Herald's Horn

+Urza's Incubator

+Quicksilver Amulet or Belbe's Portal (removes mana cost problem)

Other cards you might want to think about:There are plenty of other possible angels to add. The list is to big to add here, so look online if you are interested.

Path to Exile is great if you have a spare.

Wear is good, but it's a couple bucks.

Chaos Warp would be a must add if it wasn't $3.

Wraths are good at slowing down the game for you to catch up. Cards like Hour of Revelation, Day of Judgment, Blasphemous Act, Descend upon the Sinful, Rout, and Fumigate are all pretty good examples.

Vandalblast is a good artifact wrath.

Other Tribal artifacts like Door of Destinies & Vanquisher's Banner work nice too.

Kindred Boon might be a sweet enchantment to check out.

Gratuitous Violence is right up this decks ally.

Berserkers' Onslaught is pretty cool as well.

Hope this helped.

This deck reminded me of why Orzhov was my favorite color combo when I first began to play this game. I don't have a whole lot of suggestions (because I love this deck so much) other than that your board-wipe package seems a little underpowered/un-fleshed-out to me. Sure, you have the basics, but the great thing about white and black is the amazing sweepers! Perhaps consider some of the following board-wipes, all of which are personal favorites.

  1. Descend upon the Sinful: With all the decks that have graveyard recursion going around, this card is nice. It also gives you a 4/4 flyer sometimes.

  2. Phyrexian Rebirth: Laughs in the face of token decks.

  3. Rout: Is basically instant-speed.

  4. Decree of Pain: Draws a bunch of cards, and is also highly versatile - allowing you to pay less mana to alter the board in a different way.

Oketra's Monument? How many creatures will you actually cast to use the discount or put a token in the battlefield?
Merciless Eviction probably the best board wipe you can access, Descend upon the Sinful better than Kirtar's Wrath and more on theme with the deck.
Painful Truths, Syphon Mind, Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, Ghirapur Orrery, Staff of Nin, The Immortal Sun Because card draw is important.
