When you attack with three or more creatures, transform Legion's Landing.
Legion's Landing Discussion

Cards that only gain you life aren't terribly good in any format. Ghost lit redeemer is pretty underwhelming for that reason. Serra Ascendant or Giver of Runes would both do you more good in this type of deck. Also, this might be a bit less optimal, and you could definitely decide I'm flat out wrong on this one for sure, but Knight of the White Orchid could accelerate you to your bigger angels and such, Id think of putting one in in place of one of your take hearts and 2 in for 2 of your angelic accords maybe? For the same reason as removing redeemer might be good, Ajani's welcome could be replaced by any combo of Legion's Landing Flip and Haazda Marshal . They will gain your life but also produce extra value.
The only reason I ripped on so many of the cards in here is that I actually really like the deck as a whole, and want to see a lifegain angels deck work well. I might use this as a template for my own deck.

Another FNM with 2-2
I learned I need to have some sideboard for Dredge as it's faster.
Also that targeted hand disruption is weak and removal for push fails to hit half of decks.
Instead will experiment with Peer Through Depths as it allows to put Emmy down on the bottom of library and fetch any playable nonland card outcluding the Enchantments.

I'd try to go with playsets. Like he mentioned, it will help with consistency and therefore power. You already have cards in the mainboard that having 4 of would be great. Raise the Alarm , Honor of the Pure , and Secure the Wastes are awesome. If you want to overrun your opponent, most of your offensive threats should be 3 converted mana cost or less. Anything above that should very likely be removed. Otherwise it'll be hard to race people. Legion's Landing Flip helps here. I also love Spectral Procession . It's great. If you do go a heavy token route than Intangible Virtue is awesome. Also, if you want to keep the deck mono-white without splashing for black, then Signal Pest is good. Black offers options like Lingering Souls and Zealous Persecution .

No problem! I'm glad to help. Edgar Markov is one of my favorite commanders!
Just a short list of cards that I find really do work in my list. Even better they are all three mana or less!
Skymarcher Aspirant - An aggressive early game play that gains flying in the mid game
Vicious Conquistador - Great value for a one drop. Essentially a swing-wide card
Dusk Legion Zealot - Replaces itself when you play it. Two bodies and a new card for two mana!
Throne of the God-Pharaoh - If you plane to swing out (you should) this card helps you go wide
Chromatic Lantern - One of the very few three or greater mana rocks I ever run. Having it out makes mana fixing a non-issue
Vandalblast - I don't know about your meta, but mine has a veritable trove of artifacts. This can be a blowout when overloaded and can be use as a single target if need be
Painful Truths - I love this card in B/x/x decks. Three mana for three cards and three life if you pay right is about as good as it gets in black

lagotripha I understand where you're coming from, this deck isn't a full fledged tokens aggro deck that can maximize on Intangible Virtue every single turn against every deck. However I strongly believe its superior to the options you listed for the following reasons:
Intangible Virtue is a permanent that's not a creature, that gives value to more than 1 card at a time. Generally they'll have to use the same removal for it that they would have to use for my PW or other enchantments.
Lingering Souls poops out immediate tokens, yes. However one of the main goals of the deck is to play Rest in Peace as soon as possible to not only combo with Kaya, Orzhov Usurper but also just to shut down a lot of strategies that are popular in Modern right now. So I have to discard the flashback ability. Spectral Procession might be a better option if I'm looking for immediate volume.
Myth Realized seems like a pretty bad option. You have to commit mana to it every turn, its strength is highly reliable on building up, and it's easy to answer since it doesn't have any sort of protection like Gideon Jura . It doesn't put you ahead in any way, vs dropping a random Intangible Virtue with 3 tokens out now you hit for 6 for 2 mana.
Luminarch Ascension doesn't fit this deck since I have so much self-inflicted loss of life. It doesn't matter what the source is, if you read the card closely.
Pack Rat is also another card that you honestly should build around an

bigsampz69 Sorry, took me a while to reply to this.
Intangible is a staple in tokens because when you are putting a lot of tokens on the board to race your opponent, it doubles the 'value' of any 1/1 token cards you play, massively speeding up your clock.
In this prison playstyle, the tokens are already a slower win condition backed by more disruption, meaning that is only useful in those longer matchups where doubling the speed of something slower matters. With less 'token cards' to power up, that also leaves you weak to longer matchup's omnipresent hand disruption. Its also competing with just playing some more token production or similar clocks.
Compare Intangible virtue to other options for that slot - Lingering Souls (faster immediate clock, discard resistant), Legion's Landing Flip (lifelink token against aggro, resistant token producer against control), Myth Realized or Luminarch Ascension - (powerful wincon against control when paired with hand disruption), Pack Rat (kill it now or face massive value from lands) etc. Its competing with some really top-notch cards in a deck that can realistically play any of them.
