Your deck looks interesting, but I see some room for improvement :) Your land count is a little high. I think you could increase the deck's speed by dropping the land count back down to 36 and instead add some more ramp options. This would include cards like Knight of the White Orchid, Oreskos Explorer, Solemn Simulacrum and in case you have the monies, Weathered Wayfarer or Land Tax.
I can't help but notice that some of the more powerful Angels that are available are missing from your deck (you already mentioned Avacyn). If you lack the money to buy these but still want this deck to work as a tribal, perhaps you should look into cards like Honor of the Pure, Door of Destinies and Spear of Heliod.
I hope this helps and I hope you can find the time to comment on one of my decks as well. Happy gaming!

I've played my Daxos deck for two years now; feel free to check it out (and comment, would appreciate it :)). Your deck has many similarities to my own. I think though, that you could add some more of the 'nasty' enchantments that black has to pester your opponents with ;) One of my favorites would be Underworld Dreams; nobody likes taking damage for drawing cards and it would complement your Fate Unraveler nicely. Another really strong one would be No Mercy.
Another thing you might want to consider is some ramp/land fetching, to increase the speed of your deck a little. A mana rock like Worn Powerstone would be good, but I'd really recommend something like Oreskos Explorer or Weathered Wayfarer/Land Tax if you have the monies.

Seems like you have a bunch of anthem effects going on. Have you considered Marshal's Anthem? With the kicker cost you can get something back from the graveyard which is always useful. Angel of Invention is another anthem on legs, and with your slight angel tribal happening here, you could always try to reduce the cost of casting Gisela and other creatures with Urza's Incubator and just use tribal anthem effects as well.

Hey DieKnowMight! It looks like you have a lot of suggestions going on here. I'm no expert on Mardu commanders, but I have a few suggestions!
Elspeth, Sun's Champion has a wipe on her -2 that replicates the wipe people have been recommending to you.
Dolmen Gate is pretty solid, acting as damage negation similar to Iroas.
Mother of Runes is another way to protect your commander and can be used offensively to get a free swing in as well!
Stronghold Assassin goes 1 for 1 on creatures with your opponents, worthwhile since you can the creature he sacrifices and him if he dies.
Oreskos Explorer helps search for lands if you are playing against ramp.
Legion Loyalist gives your tiny guys trample, but more importantly ignores tokens.
Flesh Carver drops a big token after he dies and can sacrifice things.

Beebles, I have considered Oreskos Explorer before, many times, but have passed it by every time. I am not sure that it replaces Gift of Estates, even though it is a sorcery speed land draw card. I depend on Gift of Estates to curve out smoothly, or to draw me three cards to discard to one of several important cards for the deck. Give. That Oreskos Explorer does not guarantee a draw of three cards, I am not sure it is right. The body is useful at times, but I am not sure it outweighs the possible decrease in effectiveness. I should trial it anyway, since I keep coming back to it, but I anticipate that it will not replace Gift of Estates. I do appreciate the suggestion, though. Thanks.
