Before I go over Scroll Rack, Weathered Wayfarer is my favorite one drop creature in the game. It fixes mana, I run it with Desert of the True, Secluded Steppe, Blasted Landscape, and Drifting Meadow in my mono-white (Hokori, Dust Drinker), and it puts in serious card draw. Consider running a couple more cycling lands, but you don't need them. I always ran Mistveil Plains to bottom the cycling lands, and fetch them out again. Weathered Wayfarer became ": Draw a card." which is really powerful on a two drop that can fetch out Kor Haven, Maze of Ith, Buried Ruin, Inventors' Fair, Sequestered Stash, Inkmoth Nexus, etc.
Now onto the Scroll Rack point. Land Tax is a combo, yes, but Weathered Wayfarer is too. So is Sword of the Animist, so is Stonehewer Giant, occasionally Eternal Dragon is. And that's not including constant shuffling effects, think of Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Tithe, Enlightened Tutor, Knight of the White Orchid, Stoneforge Mystic, Recruiter of the Guard, Thalia's Lancers, Oblation can be (I guess Path to Exile technically could be), Field of Ruin, Expedition Map, Inventors' Fair, Myriad Landscape, and all of the other effects you could run if you wanted two, like the good fetches, Arid Mesa, Windswept Heath, Flooded Strand, and Marsh Flats.
Not even including all of those, you run so much shuffle, plenty of which are every turn, that though you might not need Land Tax, Scroll Rack would do you wonders, and in testing, it works so much more than you give credit for. (I just ran the deck with one less plains)

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)
-Ancient Amphitheater (you wont be running enough giants for this to be worth it)
-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)
-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)
+Seraph Sanctuary (life gain is nice & angel synergy)
+Defy Death (5 mana for an angel)
+Marshal's Anthem (anthems and brings back a bunch of creatures)
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.
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.

I would work on the lands and just throw a lot more non basic that let you do things. Drifting Meadow for instance

I might trim 5 lands and the replace some of the remaining Plains with utility/draw lands like Desert of the True, Drifting Meadow, Eiganjo Castle, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Maze of Ith, and Secluded Steppe. You also have the opportunity to run a few wastes and an Eldrazi Displacer + Restoration Angel or Wall of Omens to abuse ETB effects.
Maybe run Gisela, the Broken Blade, if you run Bruna.

General Recommendations: Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, Metallic Mimic, Vanquisher's Banner, Konda's Banner, Adaptive Automaton, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Indulgent Aristocrat, Sanctum Seeker, Profane Procession, Bloodline Keeper Flip, Necropolis Regent, Secure the Wastes, Martial Coup, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Elspeth Tirel, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Heliod, God of the Sun, Ravos, Soultender, Vona, Butcher of Magan , Debtors' Knell, Merciless Eviction, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, Deathbringer Liege, Righteous War, Pillar of Origins, Cavern of Souls, Unclaimed Territory (meh), Intangible Virtue (meh), Kindred Boon (meh), Eldrazi Monument (meh).
Austere Command, because you can save your tokens.
Strionic Resonator mainly for your general, but it can work for anything that triggers.
I won't try to sell this to you that much, but Mirage Mirror or Mirror of the Forebears can have some trickery to it if you play it right. Can also feel bad if you don't have any creatures on the field.

big changes in the deck!
In no particular order:
Strata Scythe : too high of a cost for just +X/+X, even if it can win some games
Godsend : same as before, too high of a cost and it functionally says "+3/+3 unblockable", except it is not unblockable when it matters. Can stop some big threats for a while but too situational. I love the card tho.
Prowler's Helm : just wanted to cut some redundant unblockable effects. We already have enough + tutors. You only need one of them when you want to win. Choice was between this and boots and I feel that walls are more common than only-basics
Paradise Mantle : seems amazing until you realize that we don't always have a creature doing nothing on the board that wants to tap for mana
Lightning Greaves : does't help to win, and we usually don't rely just on Sram to kill the opponent, so protection is not that important
Loxodon Warhammer : this cut is done just because the swords are better. Having a tutorable single source of lifelink can save some games tho, so better to still take this in consideration.
Cultivator's Caravan : I tried it, I didn't particularly like it. Sure, good versatility. However, most of the times its just a 3 cmc rock, not that great. The ability to attack is mostly irrilevant since its very incefficient to put equips/auras on it, and blocking still requires a creature to tap for it.
Smuggler's Copter : same issued as the caravan, plus its not versatile. Too much effort to just draw and discard occasionally. All considered, I preferer to run 0 vehicles.
Stasis Cocoon : too narrow. Sometimes can be great (can target breya, fast mana and other things), but other times its a dead card with no relevant targets.
Pacifism : a lot of problematic creatures don't act through the combat phase. Therefore this card is in the weird spot of being outclassed by 3cmc alternatives (prison term, arrest) and darksteel mutation, while also being often functionally equal to Kirtar's desire for double the cost.
Holy Mantle : there are better things to do with 4 mana. Putting it on a spirit dancer is sweet tho.
Faith Unbroken : seems a good combination of pump + draw + removal, until you realize that you are just setting up a very bad 3 for 1 later on. Not terrible thanks to Sram, but there are better plays at 4 mana.
Kor Sanctifiers : the card is ok, however the lack of recursion potential makes so that there are better alternatives.
Stone Haven Outfitter : I was excited for this card being a sort of second mini-skullclamp. Then you realize that this guy passive +1/+1 actually makes skullclamp useless and you really don't want him on the field.
Drifting Meadow : having increased the number of colorless lands, we really don't want too many tapped lands. This gets cut because of the 2 cost of cycling, worse than steppe
Disenchant : here you can cut demystify instead, your choice. Disenchant is more versatile but more costly. Usually I find that enchantments are more problematic than artifacts and I really don't want to face a Stasis with the need of 2 mana open. But I can see it useful when you sit in front of a sharuum/breya/memnarch. Its up to you. You still probably want one of them for the insant speed, for sorcery speed alternatives is better to have recurrable permanents.
