The theme is strong is this one. Awesome deck!

Maybe add a Lure to scrimp on those green babies for SoSD (or something else to let her get through). Although you're kind of already doing the same with Gift of the Deity and Destined / Lead. Alternatively, you could strengthen your game on the other side with Echo Circlet or Vanguard's Shield.

KayneMarco: As a Pauper EDH deck, you can only use one uncommon creature as the Commander, and only commons in the 99. Unfortunately neither of those two cards were ever printed/released at common, so they wouldn't be legal. =)

As for the deck...

Echo Circlet & Vanguard's Shield for starters. Plus Cathar's Shield, Accorder's Shield also because you want to keep him untapped and able to block as well as attack. There're other vigilance enablers like True-Faith Censer, too.

Bone Saw & Bonesplitter because you don't really care about his Strength. Maybe even things like Unholy Strength and Predator's Gambit.

So I guess I'm thinking voltron. Which would include things like Bladed Pinions, maybe Flayer Husk and Sickleslicer.

Then of course Vault of Whispers and Darksteel Citadel to help justify that Cranial Plating you got there.

Costly Plunder + Ichor Wellspring / Mycosynth Wellspring.

Night's Whisper should be here. you might like Dash Hopes for late game security, but it's probably useless early on.

I'd also recommend a LOT of recursion/reanimation, that way you can just let your commander die, then get 'em back to avoid Commander-tax. Things like Macabre Waltz, Grim Discovery, etc.

Both Exalted creatures, too? Servant of Nefarox and Duty-Bound Dead.

I'm just tossing out ideas, so maybe something there can help get you started! =)

Belbe's Portal could be a good way accelerate getting the more top-heavy angels onto the battlefield. As for equipment, Cathar's Shield is pretty cheap, while Stoneforge Masterwork would be a boon for the sheer amount of angels, Mask of Avacyn and Vanguard's Shield boosts her toughness, and Inquisitor's Flail would make Aurelia twice as painful to deal with. Hope that helps!

(Sry couldn't edit my last post so I'll do another :/) I noticed you're running in to trouble against aggro and Vanguard's Shield could buy you some time.

Only things that are coming to mind are Shape the Sands, Slagwurm Armor, Eland Umbra and Honor Guard. I mean I'm sure theres a Veteran Armorer/Honor Guard/Veteran Armorsmith/Vanguard's Shield/Slagwurm Armor/Accorder's Shield/Auriok Steelshaper/ Spidersilk Net/Puresteel Paladin deck possible reliant on card advantage, but I'm pretty sure it won't be better than this one. Good job.

I have a somewhat similar but got a different approach with more focus on enchantments (for Sigil of the Empty Throne), but I'll list some key cards I use if any of then inspires you :)

-Windborn Muse

-Devout Invocation <- This I highly recommend!

-Fog Bank

-Vanguard's Shield <- Use this on Fog Bank to get it out of burn range and to make it a moronically insane wall :p

-Favorable Winds

-Gravitational Shift

-Luminarch Ascension

-Angel of Jubilation Amazing card

-Resolute Archangel In case you need to heal in fear of burn
