Legendary Creature — Angel

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Discussion

I too have an Ange tribal deck (Whom God Loves), so one thing I'd suggest for COMPLETE overkill is Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. You've got the red sources in Birbs and Sages, so meeting her single red devotion shouldn't be an issue. I'd also suggest Linvala, Keeper of Silence and she can just come down and hose down a lot of things.
Another thing: Baneslayer Angel should be in this deck, she's too good NOT to run and becomes priority number one the instant you announce you're casting her.
And my final suggestion: Sigarda, Host of Herons (the old one!) is a BEATING. She's hard to answer and has a big body, what's not to love?
Lastly, a couple land suggestions that are in no universe budget (but you can run if you find extra cash to be weighting down your pocket). They are Horizon Canopy and Cavern of Souls. Cavern hoses control and taps for anything your Angels need while Canopy provides much needed card advantage to help you refuel in those grinds matches. Just a few suggestions from a fellow Angels player!

feyn_do_alduin: I tried it, but I don't like infect, and I found it far too easy to get blown out (by having them destroy the Exoskeleton, forcing me to sac the equipped creature). Also, what's your meta like? Maybe we can figure out a way to overcome that.
dlamars: Hi! I will say that if you plan to run this as more of enchantment control, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight might work better for you. With regards to War's Toll specifically, I always preferred Price of Glory.
But I definitely considered that route, and chose not to follow it. Basically, this is a voltron deck first, and a stax deck second (because playing a lot of stax enchantments dilutes the aggressive nature of the deck). The deck you seem to be making is a stax deck first and a voltron deck second: they may overlap in a lot of the card choices but the focus is different. Regardless, feel free to tag me if you want any help with yours! :)

I feel like Sigarda, Host of Herons deserves a spot on this list.
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Surrak Dragonclaw, Teeka's Dragon, Wurmcoil Engine, Two-Headed Dragon, Dragonlord Dromoka, Atarka, World Render, Dragonlord Silumgar, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, Ojutai, Soul of Winter, Silumgar, the Drifting Death, Uril, the Miststalker, Anya, Merciless Angel, Archangel Avacyn Flip, Archangel of Thune, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Empyrial Archangel, Lightning Angel, Razia, Boros Archangel, Stoic Angel, Sublime Archangel, Glissa, the Traitor, Vault of the Archangel, Griselbrand, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Aurelia, the Warleader all have that same Akroma-like feel to me, but some of them technically don't fit one or more conditions of big and 3+ static abilities.
