Seraph of the Scales seems like a good addition. I have thought about that one or Elenda, the Dusk Rose before. I have won games with Debt to the Deathless before, but I could see cutting it for something else. It may just be a "win more" card, and Seraph is more on theme.

Haha I see what you mean about Generous Gift not matching the aesthetic, but it can remove anything. In my Meta I really need all the removal I can get, since some decks will combo off pretty early if no one removes an important enchantment or something quickly. This deck takes a little bit of set up before it starts going off and I want to make sure I can get there.

Thank you for the input! Good suggestion!

Personally I like Knight of Sorrows and Seraph of the Scales . As for what to take out.... Hmm personally I'd drop Debt to the Deathless because I don't love how high a Mana cost it has and Generous Gift ... That one is a decent card but it doesn't match the aesthetic of the rest of the deck which bothers me lol also you have a decent amount of removal so I don't think you need one that gives your opponent something.

Teysa Karlov is really good in any token build and any deck with Seraph of the Scales .

Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is also really good in these builds, essentially giving you the revive side of revive / revenge repeatedly and with no CMC limit.

Here is my Orzhov build on angels, if you want to peek and compare. I like what you are working on. Orzhov Angels Thrones

You should look into a sideboard. Any Black/White deck has access to a lot of really good sideboard cards. My suggestions there are to start with 3x The Elderspell (for planeswalker heavy opponents), 3x Mortify (for Fires of Invention decks and decks with big critters), 3x Despark (for either of the first two mentioned), 3x Oath of Kaya (for aggro opponents), and 3x Dreadhorde Invasion (for early sticking threats against control, and it works really well with Divine Visitation).

Took the deck to FNM tonight to a 4-0 finish. The matchups were as follows: U/R counter burn 2-1, Boros Feather 2-1, Sultai Lands 2-0, and Mono-Black Aggro 2-0. Overall the cards I sided out most was Seraph of the Scales and Cry of the Carnarium seraph because I could barely ever find a use for it over Spawn of Mayhem and Cry because a lot of creatures are over 2 toughness in this metagame so going for the -2/-2 wasnt great except against aggro.

I don't know who you play against, how it goes, or how the deck really performs so I can't really say. My initial thoughts point at Beckon Apparition , Midnight Haunting , Raise the Alarm , Spectral Procession .

I also noticed Costly Plunder as something I'd replace but specifically for its place I'd put in a Necropotence . For the creatures I suggested Imperious Oligarch , Seraph of the Scales , Doomed Traveler and whatnot are things I immediately notice. Karlov isn't guaranteed to be out. Afterlife is nice and all but it only goes so far when you could get something else like control out of those three I mentioned. I don't know how well afterlife pays off for you though, I haven't messed with it in my EDH yet. More tokens are always nice but I feel like there are better options than most afterlife creatures. I was hoping for better afterlife from Ravnica Allegiance.

Seraph of the Scales would make for a very solid addition since the Afterlife mechanic gives you white/black tokens, goes great w/ your commander.

Also -- although this deck seems relatively budget -- if you've got the coin, Painter's Servant can serve as another copy of Darkest Hour for the combo.
