Suggestion: Take all the other cards out and put Mageta the Lion in. Ez.
Twilight Shepherd is nice because of all your wraths, but do you have the mana to wrath -> then pay 6 for the Shepherd? (Well reanimation works too)
Urza's Ruinous Blast isn't good enough I think, as it exiles your artifacts and enchantments too.
Field of Souls would be good with True Conviction but also just synergizes with your commander so maybe switch those two?

Love to see another Angel EDH deck made here on tapped out. I am also working on an EDH Angel Tribal Deck Angels Brought The Apocalypse. It's defiantly on the competitive side but noticed we share a lot of cards already. Also depending on what you mean by making them cheap, here's my recommendation list.
Lastly, if this deck is already made, Shalai, Voice of Plenty cannot be in your mono white deck because there is green in its color identity. Even though green is not in its casting cost it has green in its ability. That's why Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is considered a five color commander even though he is still colorless.

Cards that are over $1 that are auto-includes:
- Mulldrifter , which can easily be cast for 3 mana if you blink in response to the evoke trigger;
Cards that should go in: - Twilight Shepherd - your creatures never die! - Phyrexian Ingester - BUUUURP. Also should go in Yasova Dragonclaw. - Displace is a cheaper Ghostly Flicker for creatures only. - Pondering Mage is a great 5-drop for this deck. - Master Splicer is a cheap thing to flicker to get an army.
Cards that should go in for redundancy if I have to remove Brago:
- Angel of Condemnation
- Momentary Blink
- Nephalia Smuggler or Mistmeadow Witch . Probably the latter for sweeper insurance.
- Spine of Ish Sah
- Mnemonic Wall
Mean: - Tempest Caller flickered means nobody else attacks.
Cards that are not going in:
- Deadeye Navigator : NO. This card is borderline bannable in EDH.

Smokestack and Assemble the Legion seems fun. For mana though perhaps Phyrexian Altar + Solemnity + Pyreheart Wolf or Bogardan Phoenix or Lesser Masticore or Twilight Shepherd . Or the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Village Bell-Ringer and keep sacing the copies to Phyrexian Altar Now that is sexy.

Sorry if this is too basic of a question, but I've been searching and can't find the answer.
With a card like Twilight Shepherd , does its "persist" effect come before or after other cards that would bring it back? For instance, what happens if you have Gift of Immortality attached to it? Does it come back with the -1/-1 on it or is that prevented? Similarly, as another example, what happens if the Adarkar Valkyrie ability was used on it? Or what about cards that return all creatures that died during the turn, like Faith's Reward ?
Can someone tell me under what conditions the persist -1/-1 counter comes into play and when it doesn't?

To be clear: this does work. In your example: Twilight Shepherd dies, and let's say you decide to use its persist ability to bring it back with a -1/-1 counter. If it dies again then the undying ability granted by Mikaeus, the Unhallowed will bring it back with a +1/+1 counter. If it dies again then persist will bring it back, and so on and so forth.
