I would add Revival / Revenge , but looks like a cool deck. I feel like Mardu gives you Seraph of the Scales , Teysa Karlov , and Elenda, the Dusk Rose to name a few, but it's totally cool if you want to stay rakdos

I'd go down the Imperious Oligarch s and go up Seraph of the Scales , Elenda, the Dusk Rose and up the sacrifice outlets. I would also add recursive cards like Gutterbones . Plaguecrafter could be pulled for more card draw like Costly Plunder or Bankrupt in Blood . I think Mardu makes the deck much stronger, with Judith, the Scourge Diva , better removal, and Legion Warboss but if you want to stick to 2-color, that's cool too.

A little surprised not so see Seraph of the Scales here. She seems powerful enough, and the flavor would be on point.

I would suggest one of two options:
The first, as someone has suggested, is to make this deck into a commander or (as you've already done) a casual deck.
The second, which I'm going to talk about a bit more is trying to make this deck into a Standard deck. Currently in Standard, Angels are actually a good tribe, with cards like Lyra Dawnbringer , Resplendent Angel , Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , and the upcoming Seraph of the Scales . Even though the two most powerful Angels IMO in Standard are rotating out in Q4 of this year, it's still a long way to go before the time comes. The good thing about making this deck into Standard is that Standard is a more popular format, making you more likely to get into an event, and you have most of the important pieces already (Lyra, Shalai, Resplendent, Sunpetal Grove ). If you are interested in making this deck a Standard deck, I could possibly draft some decklists for you (taking into account things such as budget, etc) as I have loads of free time because it's the school holidays. If you are going this route, there are some of my Angel decks that you might want to check out for inspiration:

First of all, I must say that this seems like a pretty cool deck! I am also super hyped for an Aristocrats deck I want to build with the new set. The build I'm going for is much more Aggro, with quite a lot of recursion for a normal Aggro deck. You can check it out here if you want! :D
I like a lot your idea though, you seem much more able to abuse the token generators. Compared to the version I'm considering, this deck can't be as explosive, but it seems it has a much better late game than my version.
However, there's a couple suggestions I want to make in case it might be better for this version. I think Priest of the Forgotten Gods will be an all-star in Aristocrats. Yes, two creatures is a lot to sacrifice, but it enables so much! You make them sac a creature, you add two black mana and you draw a card! You could easily sac the Reassembling Skeleton and a token, for example, and use the black mana to bring back the skeleton. If you have Teysa on the field, and sac creatures with Afterlife, you get as little as four tokens! Or ping four times with Judith! Those two last examples are a bit Christmaslandy, but I think the Priest is one of the best sac outlets in the new set. I was proxy testing with a friend, and sometimes it's just absurd!
Also, despite the presence of both Lava Coil and Vraska's Contempt , I encourage you to include more Seraph of the Scales . If they try to exile it, you could sacrifice it to Pitiless Pontiff , to the Priest if you end up including it, or even to some cheap removal such as Final Payment or Vicious Offering (in case you face indestructible creatures in your meta). I only have two in my list, but I try to keep it more low on CMC. And still I might include another one! haha
Finally, I would definitely include some removal Mainboard, either Mortify or Bedevil in your sideboard are great cards (although Mortify is sometimes easier to cast). Oh! And Hunted Witness or Legion's Landing Flip might be nice includes, just because they fit on the curve and are pretty good cards on their own.
Well, that's basically it! I'm sorry for such a long comment I wrote ^^' In general, I would say it looks like a pretty cool list. Good luck and have fun brewing!

Update with some of your suggestions and also playtesting a little i made the following changes to the deck
Ill-Gotten Inheritance i wanted to test as a damage source but also a way to activate dawn of hope. This will be a flex spot until i feel good about it.

I like the idea but I’m not sold on Seraph of the Scales . I think Karn, Scion of Urza could work in the 4 spot possibly adding a pair of Treasure Map Flips to make his tokens big right away. These colours are tough because there are so many good 2 drops. Anyways cheers bruv!
