Energy Bolt is a tad weak. You should run Chain Reaction or perhaps Comet Storm instead as that hits far many more things, therefore gaining you more health from the life link. Norn's Annex and Peacekeeper seem a bit weak too as with all the mass damage spells you have access to your opponents shouldn't have any creatures to hit you with. Also due you the life link your life total will be high enough that you can just take the hits.

You may be an aggro wall deck (That's a sentence I never thought I'd say) but sometimes you have to get rid of the Peacekeeper or Hushwing Gryff. Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares and Beast Within are all generic good cards.
You could also afford to draw more cards. Your commander does draw you some and you have some cards to assist that but you wanna play your two and three drop walls before that. Abzan Beastmaster is wonderfully in flavor and a personal howling mine. Sultai Flayer is an option but IDK if it's worth it. But also just generic good card draw like Soul of the Harvest, Mind's Eye, (If you have one), Shamanic Revelation, even stuff like Concentrate and Harmonize. Your deck may be running on a funky axis but that doesn't mean you should forget the essentials. In fact, they can help tie your gameplay together.
Angelic Chorus Lol. Don't know if it's good but come on. Verdant Sun's Avatar, Proper Burial too. They probably aren't worth it but it sounds funny. Dragon Throne of Tarkir is also pretty funny and works well with Arcades. Marble Titan is a meekstone with legs. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive makes your team unblockable. And Heroic Intervention is pretty good.

I love Grand Arbiter Augustin IV decks, and I have one of my own that I have playtested a bunch, so here's some things I've noticed.
What I really like about this deck: I've never heard of Cleansing Meditation but it's such a great include now that I think about it that I think I will add this to my own list. Your enchantment base also has a lot of cards that I will definitely consider for my own list. The creature base also seems really solid, while being minimalist enough for all the other important spells. The land base is also pretty budget oriented (even though, and IDK if you know this because it doesn't say it on the price meter, but The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale is like 2 grand lol, I wouldn't be entirely surprised to see this elsewhere, but it seemed weird because you don't have any other super expensive stuff - if you want a similar effect there is Magus of the Tabernacle).
Some general concerns: Mana Leak and Unsubstantiate are fine in other formats, but due to the high amount of mana in EDH games, they aren't very good in EDH in my opinion. Some of my favorite creatures like Magus of the Tabernacle, Peacekeeper, and Magus of the Moat are also not present.
Anyway, it's a great list, I love this sort of deck, and I wish you luck at making the entire EDH table really hate you for decks like this (that's why I play mean decks, IDK about you...)

Purphoros, God of the Forge is in the deck because of 4 things:
1) It allows me to "anthem" my team, which can increase the clock of my General.
4) It combos with Reveillark+Karmic Guide, pending sac outlet: Goblin Bombardment. But Purphoros isn't necessary for this particular combo, it just allows me to get through opponents who have Hexproof via Leyline of Sanctity for example.
As for your suggestions:
I appreciate it. I was looking at all the angels that could possibly do "work" in here, but didn't feel they fit the build, or they were too high in CMC, or they weren't competitive enough.
And yes, Peacekeeper is amazing, and if I run a creature based white deck, I may run it in all of them to have that edge of saying when and who gets to attack. People argue that it is pointless because it takes away 2 mana a turn, but if you built your deck properly, you can still hit your land drops majority of the time, while playing other spells so you don't fall behind on board.

Sweet deck! I personally run Peacekeeper in my deck to help stall out while I build my field.

Unfortunately I don't think I have the ability to cut out my answers. Blockers or things like Peacekeeper that no amount of attackers can take care of.
Gaddock isnt just goodstuff. He is a silver bullet. You cant kill people by turn 6 when they start dropping wrath of gods on turn 4. Gaddock is there to stop that from happening. He steals wins from the jaws of defeat!
Thanks again for the suggestions. Like you said, meta makes a big difference. I wish I could go all in, but I would end up losing more I think.
