So as far as ramp cards I can give you, I have:
Mind Stone - Worn Powerstone - Dowsing Dagger Flip - Prismatic Lens - Darksteel Ingot - Arcane Signet - Boros Signet - Heraldic Banner - Hedron Archive - Talisman of Conviction - Coldsteel Heart - Dreamstone Hedron - Burnished Hart - Commander's Sphere
Cards I don't have that you may want to consider:
Sword of the Animist - Wayfarer's Bauble - Gilded Lotus - Nyx Lotus - Thran Dynamo - Fire Diamond - Marble Diamond - Solemn Simulacrum (can be thrown with Brion!) - Star Compass - Sisay's Ring - Ur-Golem's Eye - Firemind Vessel - Cloud Key - Empowered Autogenerator - Lavabrink Floodgates - Guardian Idol
I would recommend at least ten pieces of ramp, perhaps even twelve. Definitely no fewer than ten in my opinion. Perhaps six that add 1 mana and four than add 2+ mana? Something like that. Getting Brion out a turn early, while not vital, can be convenient as he can pad your life total.
I would recommend 36-38 lands.

Aight. First, you need a good ramp package. I'd go
Izzet Signet, Talisman of Creativity, Fellwar Stone, Arcane Signet. These are for mana fixing and ramp. If you can't afford Fellwar and Arcane, use Sky Diamond and Fire Diamond as temporary replacement.
Sol Ring, Coalition Relic, Eye of Ramos and Heart of Ramos. There are other things, but the whole point of these cards is to power out Niv. You can consider using Worn Powerstone and either Palladium Myr and Thran Dynamo instead if you feel that they're worth it.
You have 3 taplands, two of which are useless. They're better off being basics, although Skyline Cascade isn't the worst. Also, Evolving Wilds never belongs in 2-color decks. Temple of Epiphany is infinitely better.

Your average cmc is over 4, thats really high. I would recommend cutting 6 high cmc creatures for Talisman of Conviction Boros Signet Arcane Signet Boros Locket Fire Diamond Marble Diamond locket is bad but the 2 cards can help later in a pinch. Also try to find some lower cmc spells to swap for some fatties Maybe include Speaker of the Heavens and Bishop of Wings or other angel relevant clerics. Do you have a meta that supplies enough time for Burnished Hart ? I find it to be incredibly clunky, its 2 turns to play 2 extra lands. I would just add Myriad Landscape to the mana base and swap the burnished hart for Knight of the White Orchid Legion's Initiative can protect your team from a wipe. Leaving mana open is hard in Boros, but losing creatures with limited card draw is very bad. Eerie Interlude and Unbreakable Formation or Teferi's Protection can also protect the team if there is a board wipe. And now the important part. Herald's Horn and Vanquisher's Banner since your tribal red has wheels and impulse draw like Reforge the Soul Magus of the Wheel there's Mazemind Tome 4 scrys for 2 mana is a fair rate and if you need cards or have the mana open go ahead and draw. Stolen Strategy Grenzo, Havoc Raiser Rogue's Gloves Chandra, Torch of Defiance Mask of Memory can all get you cards just off the top of my head but Im sure scryfall or looking through some other gisela decks will render many more options as well. Cheers good luck with your Angels!

Thanks for the suggestions Peoni. You might be right about the ramp situation and the Fire Diamond has felt quite janky. I'm not looking to add any more infinite combos though 'cause my playgroup is already quite fed up with me playing them. I've considered adding Pyroblast or something similar to the deck but I like having a deck that just does its thing and wins or loses depending on the match ups.

You probably have more than enough ramp for this deck. I'd recommend taking out Fire Diamond since it comes in tapped and replacing Prismatic Lens with Basalt Monolith since you don't need to fix your mana at all and the latter generates infinite mana with Rings of Brighthearth. If you wanted to add in more etb damage effects other than Purphoros, God of the Forge, like Impact Tremors, you could include another Kiki-Jiki wincon with Conspicuous Snoop. On top of that you could include Goblin Recruiter to either set up the combo or fetch whatever variety of goblins from your deck you wanted. You might also want more ways to interact with the stack than just Deflecting Swat. Maybe something like Pyroblast? Or Burnout since you don't even have to target a blue spell with it and you get to draw on the off chance nobody at the table is playing blue. I like your use of Sundial of the Infinite. It's always a fun card to see played. I like your deck! Nice job. :^)
