Thanks for the input! I am going to change this up by removing:
- Havengul Vampire I found the cmc was too high for what I was getting out of it
- Crimson Honor Guard I found this often hit me just as much as other players, wasn't performing as expected.
- Doom Blade While I enjoy targeted removal I felt I could let this go for more land
- Sorin, Grim Nemesis only really gives tokens on his last ability which I have yet to see go off.
- Sanguine Bond Not a fan of the infinite combos as well as I find I get more out of Exquisite Blood in my play group
- Blasphemous Act My play group runs a lot of board wipes so with all the Grave Pact effects I dropped this to keep the Kindred Dominance

I'm building an Angel deck and this is one of my favorites so far, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is a brilliant addition. It's like a modern legal Mother of Runes but even better in a white ramp deck! Plus it can protect your crucial artifacts, enchantments and lands. Swiftfoot Boots and Platinum Angel would also be great in this deck as another way to shut down your opponent along side Tails and Avacyn, Angel of Hope. Selfless Spirit might also be a good addition for protecting your powerful creatures as well as flipping Archangel Avacyn Flip if needed. Where are the Snow-Covered Plains for Extraplanar Lens? I noticed you never put them in the original Revka deck either.

I think that if you are trying to abuse Okretra's Monumnet you should go up to 3 copies since its a main combo piece for the deck. Having some other cards like Wall of Omens that have good ETB would be good as well, cards like Lone Missionary, Blade Splicer, and Angel of Invention. If you add blue you can play Reflector Mage, Spell Queller, and Trophy Mage to search up the Monument with. You should also know, in case you are not aware, that the Lens doubles the opponents white mana as well if you are playing an opponent that has plains. Most people that run Lens play Snow Covered basics like Snow-Covered Plains so that if they are playing an opponent that shares a color with their deck, they are not doubling their mana as well. A couple more removal spells would be nice for the deck too, like Path to Exile.

Basic lands have the supertype "basic" in their typeline. Some older printings of basic lands don't have that supertype listed, but it is listed on newer versions and on the gather page for that card. There are currently 11 basic lands in Magic:

RubyOrzhov - The deck didn't start out to expensive, but its been one I play and tweak the most over the past couple of years. Looking at it now yikes, lol. Snow-Covered Plains are important for Sunstone, but you can ditch Scrying Sheets if you're trying to knock down the budget. Kor Haven can slot in for the Maze of Ith for a couple of bucks cheaper, and it taps for mana (or more straight up removal like Condemn works too!). Glacial Chasm is a new edition, but before then it was just a plains and I was still running a Selfless Squire as another fog. Serra's Sanctum is completely non-essential. I'm not even running enough enchantments to get as much value from it as I'd like.
Land Tax and Tithe can be Gift of Estates and Oreskos Explorer. Temporary Truce is from Portal so it costs a few bucks because of that, but for much less you can run Truce, which is the instant version of it. Or just slot back in the Mentor of the Meek I took out. Angel of Finality can be Stonecloaker. In the general theme, you can run Mobilization and Knight-Captain of Eos for a nice repeatable fog as well. This works well if you've got out a way to protect the Captain.
Academy Rector and Crucible of Worlds are the two expensive cards I put the closest to be needed, but you can work around that too. Just the way EDH works there's still cards I've NEVER drawn in the deck, so I can't say any one is completely needed unless its the actual wincon. Plea for Guidance is your budget Idyllic Tutor or Rector. And White has enough ways to find land (including Eternal Dragon) that CoW is just something nice to have if you can run it.
Thanks for the comment, I hadn't really taken the time to think about a more budget friendly version of this lately!

Overall deck looks really solid!
