Add in Mirror Gallery, and now your cooking with Gobbos <3

Are you planning on at least proxying Mirror Gallery? With Mechanized Production and your various other artifact & creature copying I'm sure you could get some mileage out of it, and not just with Krark's Thumb either.
(Also, maybe Assault Suit? I've included it in my own deck as a means of generating more coin flips and increasing Okaun's ability to kill people with commander damage; Helm + Godo obviously works too.)

When C17 came out, the first thing I did was try to rebuild the Vampiric Bloodlust deck to make exponential copies of Edgar Markov attacking each turn for the explosive +1/+1 counters. It required Blade of Selves, Mirror Gallery, Strionic Resonator, Anointed Procession, AND Sundial of the Infinite... talk about Magic Christmasland. I nearly fell off my chair with excitement when Helm of the Host was spoiled. I preordered 10 copies, put one in Edgar and one in Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, and I've been looking for things to do with the other 8.
This is the first deck I literally just clicked & bought the whole list. So excited to test it out this weekend. I happen to have a Stoneforge Mystic and an Avacyn, Angel of Hope sitting around I'm going to toss in as well as a Curator's Ward. Didn't think of Biovisionary, but I'll probably mix one of those in later.

Creatures I would recommend for this deck would include Sigarda, Host of Herons, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Herald of War and a couple of value angels like Baneslayer Angel or Archangel of Tithes. Angel of Jubilation shuts down a lot of decks that are black or sacrifice intensive.
Instants and sorceries I would include if you want to consistently get Avacyn out include Worldly Tutor, Eladamri's Call, possibly Traverse the Ulvenwald, Green Sun's Zenith and any other similar creature tutors.
Removal in white is really good so things such as Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are staples in white for commander, if you plan to run Avacyn then some more board wipes would be a good idea (i.e. Hour of Revelation, Austere Command). Decree of Justice while ok is a bit costly in terms of mana. A strictly better card would be Entreat the Angels for the cost of 6 mana into decree you only get 1 angel, for the cost of 5 you get one angel with entreat, and for 6 with miracle you get 4 angels with entreat.
cards to take out include Blessed Light (simply better removal out there), Mirror Gallery (the lack of copy creature spells make this one obsolete in this deck), Untamed Kavu (not enough versatility or utility), Evra, Halcyon Witness (doesn't quite fit into this deck unless there is a combo I am unaware of), Divine Reckoning (better board wipes out there), Marwyn, the Nurturer (not enough elves to fully utilise the ability), Daring Archaeologist (you most likely won't be able to cast enough historic spells to make this guy big enough), Steel Leaf Champion (good beatstick, only problem is the extremely intensive green cost) and at least one land (preferably a land that just enters tapped and does nothing else).
some recommended staples for angel theme would be Grand Abolisher that way people cannot immediately counter or remove your spells, Urza's Incubator, Angels usually have very high mana costs so them costing 2 less is very beneficial. If you are unable to shut down the board entirely with Avacyn and Shalai, there is another solution but I warn you, people who run mono colour will hate it: Iona, Shield of Emeria. A card so obnoxious even I wonder why it hasn't been banned in EDH yet. it is basically night night for mono colour decks and if you can find a way to copy it (Cough Cough Helm of the Host Cough Cough) then your opponents had better pray they have colourless removal or run a colourless deck.
Also needs some card draw too, cards such as Howling Mine or Font of Mythos can help, if you're feeling nice. However if you want to be terrifyingly evil, then use something like Mind's Eye. some card draw spells I would recommend are Harmonize, Greater Good, Rishkar's Expertise and Abundance.
Overall this does seem like it could be potentially the meanest deck at any EDH table, any game featuring angels and/or Avacyn are bound to be very slow and oppressive, the one thing angels are famous for is being oppressive as hell (for reference look at Iona or Linvala). A good number of creatures for angel tribal is 26-29 creatures with about 3 of them being supporting creatures (case example being grand abolisher or eternal witness, maybe an Aven Mindcensor to be even more oppressive) of course the mana dorks can also help as well, in this deck I would say a good number is about 32 creatures with a maximum of 7 supporting units. I am curious as to how oppressive this deck can potentially get in a game. Good Luck finishing this. I can guarantee angel tribal is a very fun thing to do.

Some considerations from Dominaria:
The most interesting is Amaranthine Wall. Really cheap indestructible for Mairsil.
Thran Temporal Gateway is a little less interesting but still a possibility.
Powerstone Shard I gave this a moments thought since it would make mairsil's tap for mana which is nice with Mirror Gallery but it doesn't work since they need to be artifacts.... And it requires I keep the gallery around when I use it. Still a funny thing that almost happened.
Finally Helm of the Host.... I bounce Mairsil way too much for this to be of any use.... I'm going to cry in my corner now...
