something I have found that works great with pir/toothy is a few clones and/or flicker effects. If you flicker toothy with something like Ghostly Flicker with Pir on the field you get to double the number of counters on him and draw some cards. You can even use it to dodge targeted removal at the same time! Or, you can use cards like Altered Ego or Vizier of Many Faces to clone opposing gamechangers. They can also be used in a similar way to flicker. Clone your toothy, use legend rule to zone O.G. toothy, draw some cards then recast toothy from the zone. Even if toothy only had 2 counters on him when you cast the first clone Pir can seriously up those numbers. Clone gets 4 counters from toothy trigger then recast from zone bumps it to 8. Drawing 6 cards along the way. Then if he dies whoop 8 more cards!

Hey, this look good, I like this version. I like the combining of the control for the early game with the midrange Angels for the mid and late game. I also like the idea of clones with Angels, Vizier is an underrated card, but Mirror is only good here with Resplendent and Vizier is only good with Resplendent or copy an opponent's creature. Because of this I'm not sure if Mirror is worth including.
Unfortunately, coping Lyra or Shalai with a clone isn't good. You can't control two of the same Lyra or Shalai on the battlefield at the same time. For instance if copying Lyra since both Mirror Image and Vizier of Many Faces make an exact copy of Lyra including the legendary creature's name then the legendary rule applies when you copy Lyra. You can copy Lyra, but then you have have choose one and the other dies. Can't have two of the same Lyra or Shalai in your control at the same time.
Adding blue with Angels for counterspells is good, but blue also gives you draw and dig which is something that white lacks. Consider Anticipate and Supreme Will? There's some set-up required here to get the most out of the Angels. Anticipate or Will can help to find Lyra who is really the most important card for the strategy. Will for instance can be a counterspell or a dig spell turn three having this versatility is helpful. Both these spells can help to make your land drops each turn; making a land drop each turn until turn five to play Lyra.
Consider Cast Out instead of Binding? The cycling of Cast Out is really good for white because white lacks draw options. I also like that Cast Out is instant which is helpful in current Standard where there's so much powerful haste creatures and Heart of Kiran. Binding is a good sideboard card, until rotation I think Cast Out is more beneficial main deck.
A card I think is being overlooked with Resplendent is Renewed Faith. It seems good you can play it for three mana to gain 6 life and make a 4/4 Angel at the beginning of end of your end step or most importantly because it's an instant at the beginning of your opponent's end step. That's one of the most powerful parts of Resplendent's ability it can make an Angel at the beginning of both end steps as long as you gained 5+ life during the turn. Three mana at instant speed to gain 6 life and get a 4/4 Angel is pretty incredible value in aggro or midrange matchups. Faith is also another cycle card for white, more draw as well as life gain.
The big benefit of these clones is if the creature you copy has an ETB ability then the cloned copy gets this ETB ability. Good with Shield Mare and Sunscourge Champion, these creatures gain life when they ETB.
Have you been following some of the reveals from Guilds of Ravnica? One reveal is new artwork of Aurelia, the Warleader. Looks like she's going to be a big part of Boros Legion guild in the set. The GRN set symbol also looks like her pointed helmet, she could be a big part of not only Boros by the entire set. I can imagine that new Aurelia with Lyra and Resplendent is going to be great midrange fun :)
Perhaps think about brewing a Boros version of Angels to prepare for Guilds of Ravnica? Azorius is unfortunately not a guild in Guilds of Ravnica have to wait until Jan. 2019 for Azorius.
Good luck with your deck.

OneItsStarted: The flexibility seems nice, but I don't think I would usually pay 5 mana to meld them.

MarshCasualty Thank you so much! This is probably the first deck idea I've come up with which may not actually be bad so I'm really glad at least somebody else likes the idea too!
And honestly no I hadn't thought of Temmet, but once I found Vizier of Many Faces I began to realise how good embalmed creatures could be in this deck, it's just a matter of finding space to put them in plus not that many embalm creatures are great, I had also considered Aven Wind Guide but again it's just finding space. Thanks again for suggesting ideas too!

I recently was in a matchup against some dragon control decks with this deck. I managed to scrape out a victory in the games I played with Chandra's Defeat, but it was incredibly annoying to have to face the constant burn that managed to destroy my creatures quickly. The dragons, too, were powerful, and hard to deal with. Any suggestions?
(I've been considering Vizier of Many Faces - although that's an unlikely choice - and I replaced Silent Gravestone, which is currently an obsolete card, with Insult - but there is a possibility of replacing that with Cryptic Serpent.)
