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

As a fellow Angel lover (you can see my angel tribal & taxes deck here ), I think you run many angels that are simply not good enough. Angel of Retribution, Radiant, Archangel is too fragile to mass removal, Seraph of Dawn, Seraph of the Suns, Shepherd of the Lost, Requiem Angel, Angelic Field Marshal is useless if you don't have your commander out, and if you have it you really don't need that much having viligance on all your creatures when a lot of them already have it, Exquisite Archangel (if you want this kind of effect I would prefer Resolute Archangel, that does it whenever you want), Herald of War I think is too slow, all of those I think cost too much for what they do, even Radiant, because she is too vulnerable against mass removal, although you could argue that she is good enough, I don't like her that much. I also think some of them like Silver Seraph or Shattered Angel could be removed but I'm fearing that I am going to cut too much and you will end up with less than 100 cards. Also, I'd suggest removing Iona, as hard as it is for me to say, but when my opponents stole it from me for the third time and named white I finally decided is too risky to run her in a monocolored deck.
I also think you are running some inefficient lifegain. Chaplain's Blessing is too weak, you could instead run cards like Blessed Alliance that are far more versatile, or Solemn Offering to mix targeted removal with life gain. Rest for the Weary, Sun Droplet, those ones I think are too ineficient.
Finally, some of the artifacts you run are to make your creatures able to evade more, but I don't think it is necessary when all of them already fly and are enormous, so I would cut Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm. I don't think Whispersilk Cloak is that good taking into account how many enchantments and abilities you have that target your creatures, and Sunbeam Spellbomb isn't good enough if you are not running some kind of graveyard recursion.
Finally, I would cut many of the cards you use to buff up your angels. They are already big, you don't need too many +1/+1 effects when you are always casting 5/5s, 6/6s and 7/7s. That would make Silver Seraph, Path of Bravery, Honor of the Pure, Dictate of Heliod and Light from Within cuttable.
Have you thought about adding Approach of the Second Sun? It's a nice alternate win condition that makes you gain life. I'd also think about including the OG Ajani Goldmane, it was made specifically about lifegain.

Hello! My suggestions: Linvala, Keeper of Silence - no need to explain, Ajani Steadfast to put counters especially on Herald of War, Angel of Invention - to boost your creatures, Stoneforge Masterwork and Inquisitor's Flail- to make your commander much stronger, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment - board wipes, Sensei's Divining Top - card draw.

Thanks for helping out! I put Herald of War in the list (not updated here yet). Sensei's Divining Top is looking sick! Don't know about the tokens for this build though, I like the big white stompy flavour ;)
I took the build to my LGS and had alot of fun, went 3/4! Will continue to tweak after more testing.

Hi! Welcome to EDH. Nice deck. As for me I'd make some additions. Creatures: Herald of War (strongly recommended for Angels/Humans tribal), Burnished Hart (everyone needs additional lands), Angel of Invention (useful creature without a doubt), Reya Dawnbringer (mana cost is high but her ability is nice). Artifacts: Sensei's Divining Top (card advantage), Ashnod's Altar (one of the best mana rocks. But you need tons of creatures to sacrifice so I advice you to think about token generators. For example Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar + Anointed Procession). Good luck!

Hi! I would also add Herald of War to make your creatures cheaper.
