I personally run 34 lands with a cmc of 3.64, but sometimes have a game I wished i included one more. You have a few more rocks and dorks in your deck, so perhaps 34 is fine. But the cmc is a bit deceiving, I think your creature cmc cuts around 4, but the tutors and cheap removal you run holds it low.
On cuts, I think your deck looks in a good shape. Just quite spread with good stuff. You perhaps can narrow your focus down some more towards your wincons, especially since you run so much tutors.
E.g. Abzan Battle Priest is a good herald, but lifelink adds nothing to your strategy apart from survival.
How often do you play Necropolis Regent over other stuff? She's good, but I'd probably played something else for 6. You already adopted my Rite of Replication plan, Mirror Mockery does nearly the same thing on Reyhan attacks.
Is Tymna the Weaver the optimal choice for card draw here? It's not that you run bleed effects.

I assume you meant this to be a modern deck, if so a few recommendations; look into Herald of War and Heliod, God of the Sun . They are great at getting the angels out there and keep them out there. Second recommendation is to lower you cmc curve or at least add in a card like Mana Tithe or Path to Exile to remove threats early on. Third recommendation is to add more land, you have a few cards that are seven and above so you need to be laying down a land each turn. Deck looks like it would be great fun to play, hope it brings you many wins.

Hey again, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Consider cards that can arrange the top of your library? These cards let you more easily reveal a creature to cheat into play with Mayael. If your friend's budget is $1000 then he/she can afford Scroll Rack and/or Sensei's Divining Top and/or Sylvan Library . These three cards are powerful repeatable ways to arrange the top of your library. Enlightened Tutor can tutor for one of these cards. Other cards that do this are creature tutors that put the creature you search for on top of your library: Worldly Tutor , Congregation at Dawn and Sylvan Tutor .
Other cards to consider:
- Iona, Shield of Emeria : in sideboard, if you have it put it main deck.
- Herald of War : in sideboard, if you have it put it main deck.
- Resplendent Angel
- Angel of Serenity
- Nature's Lore
- Defense of the Heart
- Sacred Foundry
- Stomping Ground
- Windswept Heath
- Wooded Foothills
- Battlefield Forge
- Karplusan Forest
- Spire Garden
- Bountiful Promenade
- Mana Vault
Good luck with your deck.

The Angel Deck
Planeswalker (2) 2x Elspeth, Knight-Errant
Land (20) 8x Mountain 8x Plains 4x Seraph Sanctuary
Artifact (2) 2x Pearl Medallion
It still needs some trimming and refinement

You need more lands, white does ramping poorly and you cant afford to miss a land drop ever, so probably 36 MINIMUM and 38 would be better. You need more ramp spells like Sol Ring , Thran Dynamo , Gilded Lotus , Knight of the White Orchid , Kor Cartographer , Solemn Simulacrum , Caged Sun , Gauntlet of Power and Extraplanar Lens . Also Herald of War is a very good choice as well. In short your playing big expensive creatures and you need the ability to get them out quickly. Note that the mana doublers I suggested works very well with your commanders mana sink ability.

Hey, consider Mistveil Plains and Tithe? Mistveil is a way to put a spell back into your library and then cast it again with Sunforger, you can loop the same spell. Tithe can tutor for Mistveil and best of all be cast with Sunforger.
Angels to consider adding:
Other cards to consider:
- Gamble: unconditional tutor for Boros
- Chaos Warp: unconditional permanent removal that can be cast with Sunforger
- Mass Hysteria: give all Angels haste for one mana
- Urabrask the Hidden: give Angels haste, take away haste from your opponents
- Pearl Medallion
Cards to consider cutting:
- Light of the Legion
- Serra's Guardian
- Subjugator Angel
- Voice of All
- Bruna, the Fading Light
- Gisela, the Broken Blade
- Whispersilk Cloak
- Sword of the Animist
- Always Watching
- 1x Plains
I would cut Bruna and Gisela. There's better Angels for their mana costs. The fun factor of playing them together is to meld, but it's not consistent enough without having many ways to tutor for Angels that you'll have both on the battlefield at the same time.
Good luck with your deck
