I like the deck over all. I think it's pretty neat that your deck has an underlying "angel tribal" sub-theme to it. If you would like to expand that theme a bit then you could focus on more tribal synergies as well, like adding Bruna, the Fading Light and Herald of War. Also in your cat deck you have Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator which I believe are better suited for this deck.

The big problem I am seeing with this deck overall is that your instants and sorcerys are a bit lacking, especially for red white, and your creature mana curve is really high. Some of the mana problems go away with the amount of rocks you run and if you switch to tribal angels you can use the artifacts and Herald of War to alleviate that a bit. Another problem is that most of your lands enter tapped.

To fix these things you could do as such (if you have the money or desire to):

-Desolation Giant (you're better off with a normal wrath)

-Jareth, Leonine Titan (doesn't have flying or reach which makes him worse)

-Kalemne's Captain (to much mana. If you have enough to monstrous, play an angel)

-Warchief Giant (this card is great, but you might want Angelic Skirmisher or Aegis Angel instead. Up to you really)

-Ancient Amphitheater (you wont be running enough giants for this to be worth it)

-Some of the cycling lands. You don't need 5. (probably Drifting Meadow & Smoldering Crater)

-Comeuppance (4 drop instant is a lot in this deck)

-Manabarbs (I like the idea, but you will need to tap many more lands than anyone else)

-Boros Keyrune (Boros Cluestone is better & it isn't worth 3 mana)

-Loxodon Warhammer (Great card, but not really useful in this high cost deck)

-Tamiyo's Journal (Too slow for this deck)

-Whispersilk Cloak (Most of your creatures already have flying)

+Bruna, the Fading Light

+Herald of War

+Angelic Skirmisher

+Generator Servant (Good mana + haste, and Sun Titan target)

+Path of Ancestry

+Hanweir Battlements (haste is good, enters untapped, don't need but could add Hanweir Garrison if you want to)

+Seraph Sanctuary (life gain is nice & angel synergy)

+Deflecting Palm (just a better Comeuppance)

+Defy Death (5 mana for an angel)

+Marshal's Anthem (anthems and brings back a bunch of creatures)

+Herald's Horn

+Urza's Incubator

+Quicksilver Amulet or Belbe's Portal (removes mana cost problem)

Other cards you might want to think about:There are plenty of other possible angels to add. The list is to big to add here, so look online if you are interested.

Path to Exile is great if you have a spare.

Wear is good, but it's a couple bucks.

Chaos Warp would be a must add if it wasn't $3.

Wraths are good at slowing down the game for you to catch up. Cards like Hour of Revelation, Day of Judgment, Blasphemous Act, Descend upon the Sinful, Rout, and Fumigate are all pretty good examples.

Vandalblast is a good artifact wrath.

Other Tribal artifacts like Door of Destinies & Vanquisher's Banner work nice too.

Kindred Boon might be a sweet enchantment to check out.

Gratuitous Violence is right up this decks ally.

Berserkers' Onslaught is pretty cool as well.

Hope this helped.

Goblin Rabblemaster, Metallic Mimic, Obelisk of Urd, Goblinslide, Stoneforge Masterwork, Door of Destinies, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Chaos Warp, Cavern of Souls, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Homeward Path, Dormant Volcano, Smoldering Crater, High Market, Ruby Medallion, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Buried Ruin, Sea Gate Wreckage, Field of Ruin are some ideas to flesh things out a bit! +1

Keep in mind you can include cards you want but dont have (due to financial constraints) as a way to test them out and see if theyre even worth buying. To keep track you can also include them in the acquire portion (where you can decide whether Card is being put main or side or maybe board) that only you can see, and periodically you can click them to see the TCGPlayer price. Just a thought, I also sometimes put cards I dont own in mainboard (to playtest and avoid repeat suggestions) as well as maybeboard and in description note that cards in both spots arent yet owned.

Instead of Smoldering Crater you might want Forgotten Cave. Also Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is a good land for mono red.
