Scrying Sheets works pretty well when paired with 20+ Snow-Covered Plains . 1 or 2 would give you some extra draw lands and ensure your draws are all gas.

Hey, lots of good cards here and this is a good start for a deck built around Angels. You say in the description "Uses few artifacts to speedily get additional angels out" consider expanding on this? It's the right strategy to use since Avacyn costs 8 mana :)

Cards to consider adding:

Do you have Scroll Rack ? I see it in the sideboard; if you have it play it main deck, card is very good at helping to draw an Angel every turn and has fantastic interaction with Herald's Horn. I see Extraplanar Lens, this card works much better with Snow-Covered Plains then normal Plains. Snow-Covered reduces the number of opponents who can benefit from Lens. If you imprint a Snow-Covered Plains instead of Plains then only opponents who play Snow-Covered Plains get the mana bonus.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Always Watching
  • Angelic Chorus
  • Angelic Exaltation
  • Brave the Sands
  • Radiant Destiny
  • True Conviction
  • Dragon Scales
  • Door of Destinies
  • Akroma's Memorial
  • Cryptic Gateway
  • Moonsilver Spear
  • Akroma's Vengeance
  • Sunblast Angel
  • Subjugator Angel
  • Serra's Guardian
  • Seraph of Dawn
  • Resolute Archangel
  • Malach of the Dawn
  • Lightkeeper of Emeria
  • Angel of Invention
  • Angel of Condemnation
  • Shattered Angel
  • Exquisite Archangel

Many of these cards I suggest to cut are anthem effects. I don't think Angels need so many of these effects since they're already powerful flying creatures; they don't benefit enough from so many anthems. Replacing anthems effects with ramp lets you actually play Angels faster which I think is more important than pumping them since you can't pump Angels if you don't have any on the battlefield. Lots of other high mana cost (CMC six plus) Angels have potential to clog your hand, not able to cast them. You already have your powerful eight mana Angel in the Command Zone because of this consider cutting a lot of other high mana cost Angels to help to reduce the avg. CMC of the deck which is currently high at 4.5.

Good luck with your deck.

If you convert all your basic lands to Snow-Covered Plains you can make use of Extraplanar Lens without helping any of your opponents most of the time. Really helps with mana production because Avacyn is a pretty slow commander. Other than that this looks really good!

I think given that you're running Endless Horizons you should want to maximize the amount of plains in your deck over lands with minor upsides. (Thinking fetches here) Their thinning, while technically good, doesn't match the upside of eliminating up to 60% of your dead draws that Endless Horizons provides. To me this is the only way including that card makes sense. Snow-Covered Plains and Scrying Sheets are also great if you can spare the land slot.

Maybe mix it up a bit with Snow-Covered Plains ?

I don't think Luminarch Ascension is really worth it. It does nothing when it comes into play, and for at least 4 more turns. Sure, it's just a 2 drop and it does provide devotion, but I only really see that card working well in multiplayer.

Mox Amber also seems like a subpar choice, you don't need the mana-fixing, and Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is the only card that really allows it to ramp you. I'd just get another plains, or possibly a fancier mono-white land like Eiganjo Castle, Mistveil Plains or Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

You don't have a whole lot of removal, so I'd definitely consider adding some. Path to Exile and Oblivion Ring are the classics, but Angel of Sanctions is on theme even if it is pretty pricy.

Your curve is pretty high, so maybe consider Knight of the White Orchid, Mind Stone or Weathered Wayfarer. There's also Endless Horizons and Extraplanar Lens. For the second, maybe consider switching to Snow-Covered Plains.

Any of these cards would really help get those big cmc angels out faster:

At 36%, this deck honestly has a higher land-ratio than other modern decks that I run.

Make sure you're shuffling well, and if you want to add a few more lands then keep in mind Snow-Covered Plains take priority over Snow-Covered Forest, and each land you add reduces the probabilities I've outlined by about 2%.
