Your deck wins by having bigger and better creatures than your opponent, so you really shouldn't be in a situation where Wrath of God helps you. You might, however, be in one where Urza's Ruinous Blast does. Legendary creatures aren't too popular, and you have a good few. I would probably just cut it, though.
If it works for you, keep Luminarch Ascension , but I don't expect it to be relevant very often. Maybe against mill or control decks, in principle, but I'd cut it.
Frontier Siege seems like a fun piece of jank, but not a solid part of your deck. I'd cut it.
You really want to be able to put an untapped green mana in play on turn 1, so I'd cut Blossoming Sands and Canopy Vista for something faster. Horizon Canopy is probably the best, followed by Windswept Heath , Temple Garden , and Razorverge Thicket . Unsurprisingly, that's also how they're priced.
If you go all in on dual lands (which I recommend), I would cut Flagstones of Trokair . They don't do that much if there's no straight-up land destruction in the local meta, and they can't be fetched if someone uses Ghost Quarter , Field of Ruin , Settle the Wreckage or Assassin's Trophy against you.
Deadly Recluse is a fine blocker, but all it does for you is postpone things, and what you really want to do is put your big dudes into play. I'd replace it with more ramp, or possibly card draw. Take a look at Thraben Inspector or Wall of Omens .

I have not found Seraph Sanctuary to be worth it, particularly not when you're running so many Forests. Razorverge Thicket and Windswept Heath are excellent in my experience. You may also consider running Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , but you do have some non-white devotion, so it may not be worth it.
I had a similar deck for a good while you can check out if you're interested: Noble Angels.

I'd take Journey to Nowhere over Pacifism , there are a lot of creatures who hurt you just by being on the battlefield without attacking or blocking anyone. Luminarch Ascension seems like a card that's good in multiplayer where you have a lot of opponents' end phases for it to trigger in and a propensity for stale mates, so if you're playing that way a lot it's a good card. In normal matchups, though, I don't see it doing much for you. Instead of Ghostly Prison , I'd bring in Archangel of Tithes , she's a bit more expensive for you and not as expensive for your opponent, but she's more versatile and comes with a 3/5 body which can really do wonders.
Darksteel Citadel doesn't seem to do a whole lot of good for you, and the occasional life-gain from Seraph Sanctuary is really also something you need to have a payoff for for it to be worth it. Maybe just get some extra plains, or you could get Eiganjo Castle or Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers . You also seem to have rather more forests than I'd really recommend, but good dual lands are expensive, so I get you :) If you can afford them, I recommend Temple Garden , Horizon Canopy , Windswept Heath , Razorverge Thicket and Wooded Bastion .
Shaman of Forgotten Ways seems way too expensive, I'd get Birds of Paradise or more Noble Hierarch s if you can afford it, otherwise Avacyn's Pilgrim , Beastcaller Savant or Bloom Tender can do good work too. I'm also not sure what Kytheon's Irregulars ' role in your deck is, again let me recommend Archangel of Tithes , or alternatively Angel of Jubilation , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , or Indomitable Archangel or Gisela, the Broken Blade . Baneslayer Angel is a fine card, but unless you're facing demons and dragons regularly, Lyra Dawnbringer is probably better. Her ability to be a lord for other angels is really nice.
Iona, Shield of Emeria and Avacyn, Angel of Hope are super powerful bombs, but I'm not sure you have enough ramp to play them consistently. Of course, you know your local meta better than I do, so you be the judge of that yourself :) I'd recommend thinking about dropping them, though.
And last, a shameless plug. I've been playing with an angel deck of my own at my local FNM and been doing OK, it's been mono-white, white-green-red and is now just white-green. You can check the latest iteration here if you're looking for a somewhat different take on this whole business: Noble Angels

I would play: 4x Birds, 4x Noble, 3x Kitchen, 3x Strangleroot, 4x Wolf
Having 4 Noble and 4 Wolves makes you far more likely to win on turn 3. Besides once you have your combo in play, gaining infinite life with Kitchen is unnecessary. Its only use is to help keep you alive another turn until you get your combo and that is less critical if you are able to get it faster with the Nobles and the extra Wolf. Finally, currently you have a lot of 3-drops but not so many 1-drops. You need more staff to play on turn 1 and "reserve" your turn 3 (or turn 2 if Noble or Birds) for your enchantments, tutor or the Station. So 3 Kitchen and 3 Strangleroot should be better.
To get to 60 cards I would just drop a land. I think it's viable when playing 8 mana generators. And I would play Sunpetal Grove over Razorverge Thicket since all your lands are Forest or Plains or fetch for them.
Nice Deck! Good Luck!

hmm first question would be if this has strengths that put it as a better choice than 5 color humans, your guys can get a little bigger in the long game and Field of Ruin shouldn't hurt. Now to get that effect you're trading the instant speed option, discard ability, control taxing, board wipe hating.
Now with the spike rant out of the way, your blademaster really doesn't like you having lands that don't tap for white, I'd suggest trimming those down to one forest and the township. Ideally you'd run Horizon Canopy, but Unclaimed Territory wouldn't hurt, Razorverge Thicket also is pretty good option.
Now This deck is quite possibly running too many non creatures, the commands and calls may work well when the ball is rolling, but they rely on that ball to be rolling to give value, they might work as sideboard cards. Now Knight of Autumn can give you some of the utility command gave, while also giving you a body and another counter effect that works with scales. Militia Bugler in a creature heavier list will nearly always draw you a human.

Typically decks running Arbiter avoid fetches like the plague, because they don’t want their own arbiter tripping them up. It’s more likely you’d simply include a playset each of Razorverge Thicket and Temple Garden (keeping your green mana the same), and 3 Plains to drop each of your non-ghost quarter colourless lands to 1-ofs (as you’ll now be able to fetch those if need be, albiet carefully if you have arbiter). Up to you though - it changes the deck quite a bit, and duel lands ain’t cheap
