I may be a bit biased on what I'm about to say, but im curious as to why Flash + Protean Hulk combo isn't in the Child of Alara deck list. Child is my oldest EDH deck, about 7 years playing it, and my current list reflects most all of the cards in the recommended list above, except I added a Flash Hulk package (please note that the list on my tappedout is still outdated). Flashing out academy rector or Boonweaver Giant can easily bring out the combos at a quicker pace and hulk can grab up the whole combo in of itself. Flash also allows us to easily bring out and sac Angel of Glory's Rise or Reveillark which can also lead to a combo finish so long as we just pitch some things to the grave with cards like Survival of the Fittest or buried alive. With the added inclusion of these cards, I honestly feel that this deck now outperforms a lot of the other T4 decks; the deck wins between turns 1-4 and is usually winning around turn 3 goldfishing, while still holding up permission. I will include an updated list once I'm back from vacation, but i feel that the commander should be at a 2.5 with ability to abuse hulk and flash so easily.

If you think you might like playing this deck, I'm happy to offer some pointers.
So, Sun Titan + like Wasteland or Eternal Witness is bananas with Karador, Ghost Chieftain in play. Yes, I will cast titan, with his trigger target e-wit and bring back my Swords to Plowshares to negate your blocker for next turn when I swing with titan. I hope you have an answer!
Solemn Simulacrum with a sac trigger is fun. Summon solemn, go get a land. Cast Cartel Aristocrat or even better Yahenni, Undying Partisan for his haste and sac solemn...draw a card + yahenni's indestructible.
So far, everything in this deck has played magically. The ramp spells seem to be just enough without overloading with extra lands and not being able to draw relevant spells. The removal and board wipes are adequate and efficient. The 187 effects (Ravenous Chupacabra, Noxious Gearhulk, Shriekmaw) are amazing. Fleshbag Marauder also adds an element to search out with a Birthing Pod on the field.
An example for pod against a creature-based opponent would be to like pod an Elvish Visionary into Fleshbag Marauder, and cast visionary again off karador. Note to the wise, marauder can hit your own problem dudes too, with a lockdown effect or something that makes you lose life (Stab Wound is the only thing that comes to mind). Then you pod a 3 cmc into chupacabra, pod the chupacabra into Thragtusk, Shriekmaw, or even more fun into Karmic Guide (target your chupacabra back to 187 something else) and have your cake while eating your opponents board.
Ashen Rider with High Market is fun as well. Your opponents watch you get the rider into play...blow up a land or something of value. Then, if you have the market in play, NEVER EVER EVER use it unless your opponent is tapped out or if you have no other choice, because of the stack. If you choose to use the High Market to sac your dudes, they can exile in response and you lose your dude... no recast triggers for karador.
Stuff to look out for include Bojuka Bog or any graveyard exile effects. Though I haven't seen them played, Torpor Orb and Grafdigger's Cage both hose us. We still have ways around these types of cards, but you must be cognizant of the possibilities to always NOT overextend too far. Like your opponent has two lands in play and is needing to get to like 4 or 5 to be relevant. So, you go over the top summoning everything, your opponent hits a third land and hits you with Bontu's Last Reckoning and follows it up with a Bojuka Bog. Save a creature or two instead of putting your entire hand on the battlefield. Your opponent is on two lands. You don't have to summon everything and get it over in two turns.
Ok, ok, ok. So everyone HAS to have like an infinite combo or way of "going off", right? Well Karmic Guide with a Reveillark and a sac outlet means infinite ETB's and possibly infinite other things....like Acidic Slime. You cast Reveillark with guide in the graveyard and when Reveillark ETB's, you choose your targets and then sac Reveillark. With guide as one of your targets, you target the newly sac'ed Reveillark, rinse and repeat. With Acidic Slime, you blow up all of your opponents' artifacts, enchantments, and lands. With chupacabra, you board wipe. With Satyr Wayfinder you mill yourself out.

Really love the idea of going infinite with Shalai. I would drop most of the angels and change the focus to tokens and counters. Adding in Doubling Season, Primal Vigor, Hardened Scales, Cathars' Crusade, Parallel Lives, Anointed Procession, Panharmonicon, and Ashnod's Altar gives you more infinite mana combos. Reveillark combos with Karmic Guide for infinite sacrifices to the altar. Kitchen Finks also combos with Vizier.
Promise of Bunrei, Rhys the Redeemed, Spectral Procession, Sram's Expertise, Triplicate Spirits, Deploy to the Front, Conqueror's Pledge, Increasing Devotion, and Nomads' Assembly could be good for generating tokens.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty is not legal in an EDH deck with avacyn as the commander, since Shalai has an ability that requires , it has a colour identity of. Angel of Invention doesn't really seem to fit in anywhere here, i mean the anthem effect is nice, but its mana cost is a bit high for a 2/1 flier. Remember the Fallen, while decent is a one off use card, a good reanimator for mono white is something such as Dawnbreak Reclaimer. Basically on your end step an opponent chooses something in your GY and you choose something in theirs. you MAY then reanimate those creatures, helps make Avacyn a bit more bearable as an opponent. also gives some good political leverage. Karmic Guide, while good tends to get even more value when put in combo with Reveillark. if a sac outlet is presented they go infinite with each other. otherwise i would probably replace karmic guide with Sublime Archangel and Shalai with Dawnbreak Reclaimer.
In conclusion- strong start, does need a little bit more board wipes to be consistent with Avacyn. NEEDS Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots because once Avacyn hits the board, you WILL be targeted by everyone at the table, this is coming from someone who uses an Avacyn deck as well.
if you want some ideas here is my Avacyn decklist: Avacyn's Genocidal Crusade

If I may offer some suggestions, I don't think storm is the best route for these colors b/c you don't have cantrips or high tide or any of the good shit that makes storm work well in, let's say, grixis. My I would suggest adjusting the deck to incorporate more of the following:
Phyrexian Altar (and to a lesser extent Ashnod's Altar)+Reveillark/Karmic Guide loop generates infinite colorless mana and ETBs. We can get there faster with Buried Alive/Reanimate +our loop and Wall of Omens (probably the only way to competitively do this.) Using Wall of Omens we can draw through our library. Using Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat and our loop we kill our opponents. With infinite mana from the Phyrexian Altar we can cast Torment of Hailfire and kill everyone. You can Sickening Dreams. You can cast Consume Spirit to drain one player to death then Bond of Agony to kill table or Debt to the Deathless (or any other b/w kill spells).
So at a minimum to set this combo off you need 4 which provides you infinite colorless and our entire library with which we can cast Phyrexian Altar, Gemstone Array, or Mycosynth Lattice to turn our infinite colorless into infinite colored mana. Now we win. Having 3 targets for our infinite mana means our opponents better have stopped the combo back when we were reanimating, cause holding up enough counters to stop 3 spells ain't easy. Since black has so many ways to reanimate, this isn't a problem either, throw in Necromancy, Exhume, and Victimize and we have plenty of options open to us.
(Another option that just occurred to me is to have Disciple of the Vault out, buried alive our loop + an artifact creature (preferably one that provides value), won't need the altars, so this costs 1-2 mana less, but requires more and doesn't give you the option of your library+infinite mana).
I would take out the Serra Ascendent, Candelabra, Land Tax, Aetherflux, Paradox Engine, Human Frailty and anything else that doesn't help us get there
I would be very interested in what you think of these changes, I will probably put up a build of my own when I get a chance
(I was brought here after being asked to for a competitive build for Orzhov, found your comment on the Lab Maniacs CEDH list. I think this is a good start, but I think it can be improved.)

Lord of the Void has won me games, pulling Eldrazi's, he almost lost me the game once against a Grixis top-decking a Phage the Untouchable, luckily there was a Baleful Strix in the 7. He also works great with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Silverblade Paladin who is cut from the deck right now unfortunately. I'm okay with losing Lord of the Void but, what i've found right now is I'm critical mass with A/D/D. Sometimes, I don't have one when need one. So i'm reluctant to go down any more A/D/D that isn't being replaced with another. I've actually been thinking I need to +1 and A/D/D to get more consistency. But I combo turns 2-4 50% of the time with Buried Alive + Reanimate so don't want to mess with that either.
Chromatic Lantern is protection against Aven Mindcensor for sure, also Leonin Arbiter has been popping up here and there now, and especially against Blood Moon. It's also a mana rock, CMC3 sucks, but I've found it supports a Necropotence drop in as well.
Maybe Orzhov Signet could go, don't utilize too many rocks already though, or Faithless Looting, I added it in to draw into an A/D/D if I don't have one, plus it pushes Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out of my hand if I'm unlucky and draw into him. Reveillark, breaks up a bunch of combos, but I haven't needed him in a very long time, he's a very late game rebuild/combo win-con, usually don't need him. He also recurs lots of little power 2 guys.

I also recommend running Reconnaissance. It's so busted it feels like cheating.
This card allows you to untap to avoid bad blocks and that's the fair and obvious use... but wait there's more!
This card also allows you to untap after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt... and if you call in the next ten minutes we'll throw in a free
Untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature still being an attacking creature until the end of the end of combat step.
So essentially: Attack with everyone (yes, even that 0/1, why not.), untap everyone at the most opportune time, still deal damage in most circumstances (besides the 'fair' use), and have everyone available to block with. Aka busted.
