Holy Day Discussion

Since you're relying on all of your creatures being unblockable, you might appreciate Warriors' Lesson as a cheap way to draw some cards. Likewise, Phytoburst is probably more efficient than Giant Growth, since surprise value is kind of wasted on an unblockable attacker.
It might be need to run some fog effects - Fog and Holy Day are fine, but Tangle and Moment's Peace are ideal - since you can't block your opponent's creatures, either. That way you'll ensure you can win the damage race!

The newer deck isn't meant to be an aggro deck, it's essentially a combo deck. Anointed Procession / Parallel Lives do not belong in an aggro deck, they don't do anything the turn they come into play to pressure your opponent. Luminarch Ascension is essentially the card you win with, you hide behind the fogs until you get 4 counters on it, then start spamming angels, which Anointed Procession / Parallel Lives can double. the 2 planeswalkers make tokens Nissa's -2 will pump all your tokens, additionally the most common way of killing planeswalkers is creature damage, the fogs prevent that. If anything the deck shouldn't have any actual creatures, it should have 3x Holy Day (more fogs) and 3x Settle the Wreckage or Day of Judgment (board wipes)... Actually, I'll edit it to reflect that...
There are tons of people who just love to smash with creatures and that is OK. Anointed Procession is not designed for that sort of deck. You can build a combo deck around it, but a tribal cat aggro deck has no place for it, or for the ramp creatures really. Go back and look at my first comment, I suggested a bunch of cats because when I looked at your deck I saw an aggro deck, a deck with 30 creatures is an aggro deck by default most of the time, the issue is your focussing on one card Anointed Procession which doesn't belong in an aggro deck.

First I'd suggest you edit your deck list and under Format where it says Standard, change this to Modern. EDIT - Ugh, I can't actually suggest the linked cards because your deck is in the wrong format. :-(
I can think of maybe three ways to help fix your mana, that don't involve splashing green (not you Scuttlemutt or Vesper Ghoul), the first is Lotus Bloom. The second is in a similar vein Pentad Prism, slightly less efficient though. The third is a 2 card combo Invisible Stalker + Dowsing Dagger Flip, obviously this would dilute your deck more than the first two options, but maybe?
Fog effects will protect your Planeswalkers Darkness, Holy Day if you are worried about creature damage, Apostle's Blessing will work in most cases (sigh, Eldrazi), both would require you to keep 1 mana open though, then again your a control deck with counter-spells, so that shouldn't be an issue.
Your last issue is the toughest to provide a solution to, maybe Myth Realized, Cryptic Serpent? Left-field Laboratory Maniac, if you Ad Nauseam on your opponents turn or Conflagrate, if you Ad Nauseam on your turn? I'd also suggest a Boseiju, Who Shelters All in your sideboard, to protect the combo kill...
Thats all I've got, hope this at least gives you some ideas, good luck with your brew.

Long ago a mechanic called Chroma was created, it wasn't very popular... Until it was reborn as Devotion. That introduction brings me to the card Light from Within, your Knights all have so many symbols. Outside of that Mirran Crusader is probably one of the best knights around and Accorder Paladin would give you another Battle Cry trigger. Silverblade Paladin is a maybe, double strike is a great ability but you don't really need another 3 drop... You might want something like Holy Day as this could stall aggro decks that are faster, combo decks normally need sideboard answers.
For your sideboard I'd suggest Damping Sphere and Fragmentize. You will see the Sphere in a lot of sideboards, since it messes with big mana and low curves. Fragmentize can deal with most of the relevant enchantments or artifacts, if you don't want to risk it then Revoke Existence just takes them out the game.

Because Sunforger is a bit of a toolbox card, it will come down to what your meta is to some extent.
Lots of blue in your meta? Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Reverberate, Ricochet Trap, Silence, Orim's Chant, etc are really good. you also have Mana Tithe and Lapse of Certainty to help you proactive hate out opponents.
I'm going to shamelessly plug my Aurelia, the Warleader deck: Bed Hair: cEDH Edition. It's designed to opeate in more competitive circles (as much as a boros deck can) however runs a Sunforger package designed to fight through a lot of blue and combo. It might give you a bit of an idea about balancing effects.

Yes life is a premium, paying life to go fast. Will see how Toxic Deluge goes or if it can't be cast when needed.
Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/Dragon Mage/Wheel of Fate/Chandra Ablaze/Magus of the Wheel are all viable. I play more Orzhov () and splash the Mardu , so usually I won't be pulling too many read lands with fetches. Also, with a Liliana's Caress type build or a Surveil/Dredge and true Reanimator Living Death/Living End type builds it would be very powerful.
In my build, I always feel like once I get Kaalia of the Vast stabilized where I can start dropping the A/D/D from my hand, when I would Dragon Mage to recharge, it would just give my opponents a solution to whatever, Iona, Shield of Emeria or Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Etc., instead of trying to slow the board state down. I just feel this is better suited to a Nekusar, the Mindrazer or Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or The Locust God, Etc. type Commander.
I'm unsure about Mausoleum Secrets (Situational/Late game), similar feelings towards Gamble (-1 card advantage and randomness) and Beseech the Queen (Situational/Late game). I think Mausoleum Secrets would be good with Selfless Spirit and Children of Korlis in the deck though. Hmm. I will play test it a bit, see how effective it is.
Angelic Arbiter isn't great against some decks like, Izzet () or Grixis (+) but against commanders like Xenagos, God of Revels or any Haste Commander builds actually, or Blightsteel Colossus. Since we get attacked quite a bit too, it also helps mitigate lots of that damage. Like do you want to cast Cultivate or attack with those 3/3's or whatever, do you want to swing your infect and cast nothing this turn? He's been good, won't replace him anytime soon.

i can dig Pollen Lullaby over Holy Day or even splitting the two.... both can have there scenarios where there pros and cons come in handy, i like the 1CMC soooooooo much sometimes on games where im mana screwed and am having a hard time being able to play a permanent as well as have a Fog available...but likewise winning the clash could be great for not having enough fogs in hand. ill think it over thanks Colgate !
