Lyra Dawnbringer Discussion

if you wanted to go more reanimation then, Angel of Despair, Angel of Serenity and maybe Angel of Sanctions, should be the main core of the deck, with spells like Unburial Rites, Collective Brutality and maybe mid rangey cards like The Eldest Reborn, Elspeth Conquers Death, Liliana, Death's Majesty

Grand Abolisher can help a lot against control decks and suits the devotion plan as well. If you face control often, you can also include other anti control cards. Fell free to experiment with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Favor of the Mighty, 4x Cavern of Souls, Giver of Runes, Greater Auramancy, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Pristine Angel, Voice of All, Pentarch Ward, Spectra Ward. Control has always the upper hand over you, this helps to bind their hands.
Luminous Broodmoth it's not an Angel and you control not enough non flyers that are worth to keep alive. You can run a creature only strategy. I suggest you look at death and taxes decks and draw inspiration from there.
Angels do not synergize with anything. You play Angels only because you like Angels not for competitive reasons. There is an option for a lifegain Angels deck (I'm working on it right now) but it uses very different kind of Angels Angel of Vitality, Resplendent Angel, Archangel of Thune, Lyra Dawnbringer and a lot of 1 life passive trigger cards.
If you add another color or colorless, you destroy the devotion plan. Therefore you need another strategy to get Angels out. See "Other strategies" in description

I'd say it looks pretty good. I would suggest trying Lyra Dawnbringer as the commander instead and keep the Praetor as a hidden commander. I think Lyra's cheaper cost, anthem and granting lifelink to everyone will pay out more often than Elesh.
Playing with your play group, since you have quite a few good legendary angels, try switching out the commander time to time and see how it does. Avacyn would also work good at the helm for example.

Alright, I'm here to rectify the meiny of follies within this decklist.
Unto what I would ablate:
Shalai, Voice of Plenty is an illegal inclusion due to the colour identity rules, for she has Green therewithin.
Akrasan Squire does close to naught in all scenarios. It adds one power to the board, yet offers nothing else. An eath exclusion.
Sorcery-speed removal is just awful, and therefrom I would remove Revoke Existence.
Scaretiller is awful ramp, even when playing mono-White.
Wherefore do you run White Knight? 'Tis a potent card, but doesn't do much for this strategy.
Acolyte's Reward is egregious, thence I would rede for its removal.
Suspicious Bookcase is rather perfidious, avaunt it should be snuffed for something else.
Wellway! Quite the multitude there, whereupon I have some recommendations.
This is a slow deck, so try Ghostly Prison.
Given the high mana curve, you'll need a lot of this. Marble Diamond, Mind Stone, and Arcane Signet are each two-mana, which is when you want to ramp, and do their job well. Solemn Simulacrum is okay but not great, yet Thran Dynamo does a most meritorious effect for an eight-mana commander.
Lastly, though not ramp, Generous Gift is universal and efficient removal as an instant.
That shall be all from me. Fare thee well.

Angel Tribal is something that I love to see done!
A few things I would add: Archangel of Thune, Lyra Dawnbringer, Mass Calcify, Luminarch Ascension, Resplendent Angel and Seraph of Dawn. I have made a few Angel tribal decks in a few different formats (mostly edh), and I find that these cards work quite well with Angel tribal. Just my own opinion, of course. The deck is ultimately yours. Looks Great!

I have noticed that the mouse-over for my Commanders is behaving oddly. Sometimes it works properly (Emiel the Blessed, Kels, Fight Fixer, Lyra Dawnbringer) and sometimes only a small section of the card appears, blown up to fill the whole allotted area (Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Riku of Two Reflections, Meren of Clan Nel Toth). I have not yet gone through all of my Commanders, but I have not found a specific trigger for what makes it fail.

You have a couple lands that might come in tapped, but in my opinion Amulet of Vigor isn't giving you enough value, a blocker sometimes, or a mana sometimes. In playing, I would count the number of activates and utility. Did it untap a permanent (y/n), and did you end up utilizing that untapped (y/n). If yy <= 50% it should go.
What about a Bloodgift Demon for some extra draw, or good ole Phyrexian Arena since you need to refill your hand for Strionic Resonator. Demonlord Belzenlok I also prefer over either of those, since he ETB draws, sometimes 2 cards.
Hellkite Tyrant is really nice, can accumulate mana rocks.
The talisman's are very cheap, and the best 2-mana rocks Talisman of Hierarchy / Talisman of Conviction / Talisman of Indulgence, superior to the Signets (except Arcane Signet) and an upgrade to Commander's Sphere. Fellwar Stone also isn't bad, but Chromatic Lantern has it's upside too.
Hall of the Bandit Lord can give you another haste. It enters tapped, so it's not the greatest.
A tutor package would allow you to reduce the number of ADD, taking out the lower power ones, and tutoring the higher power ones, it creates a more consistent play, but also takes away the fun of that randomness.
Staff of Nin is high cost, go Phyrexian Arena CMC3, Necropotence draw a bunch or Bloodgift Demon CMC1 cheaper and can be free cast with Kaalia of the Vast instead. Bloodgift Demon is the slowest of the bunch.
Tyrant's Familiar doesn't trigger off the turn that Kaalia of the Vast plays him, since he enters tapped an attacking. So unless you hard casting for CMC7, your not getting the benefit from him and only hits creatures, there are a variety of other dragons that hit any target. Bogardan Hellkite. Theres the new M21 dragon Terror of the Peaks, he doesn't ETB himself (boo) although, but under a Ghostway could be a win.
Angelic Skirmisher doesn't trigger properly with Kaalia of the Vast, I could see it being a finisher perhaps the next turn, but if it's really connecting for value (2+ big creatures), is it just unnecessary mass overkill vs. something like a Hellkite Tyrant which delivers immediate value as an example. I'll often Wishclaw Talisman a Hellkite Tyrant with a Kaalia of the Vast trigger on the stack and steal back my Wishclaw Talisman.
Hope you find something helpful or to think about!

DemonDragonJ: I'm not feeling like Baneslayer is going to be overpowered. Afterall, we already had Lyra Dawnbringer, and while that was powerful it wasn't dominating standard the same way other cards we have seen printed recently are.
I guess the meta might have changed enough?
