Hi DarkStarStorm, finally found the time to fiddle some more on this deck. Well, I guess your decklist was kinda on point. Tested different settings with 4 Descendants' Path and 4 Idyllic Tutor and only angels with no defenders plus some removals, but have to admit your suggestions are hard to beat. Now turn 4-5 the deck is running as it should be. Flexspot I filled with some badass angels I personally admire (Akroma, Angel of Fury, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Reya Dawnbringer). Hopeing for some more feedback, for now I have to change the deck description :D

Maybe Defy Death as a recurion engine, of if something makes you mill/discard an angel you can recur it cheaper.

The Descendant's Paths seem to really help ramp up the boardstate quickly around Turns 4-6. I got a free Akroma, Angel of Fury and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight on Turns 6 and 7, respectively. Wall of Omens provided blockers and helped with draw, while the Wall of Roots helped me ramp mana early game.
It plays a lot more smoothly than I remember last time. You've done a good job here. (:

Love this deck. I have also been on the trek of making an angel tribal. I myself went mono white devotion using lots of enchantments to build my devotion in order to cast my hefty angels as early as turn 4. One card that might be beneficial here for mana issues is Weathered Wayfarer. It allows you to pull any land and reduces your mulligans as long as he's in your opening hand. If your friend still needs convincing that they can't be competitive, check out this deck Devotion to White Angels. Mine is extremely similar and let me tell you it's a beast of a deck :)

I'm delighted to hear that my suggestions have been so well received! Looking at your list, it now boasts a clock that it didn't before. Regardless of whether Descendants' Path nabs a scary angel, it has the added benefit of threatening to do so. Opponents will never feel safe if you have this, and an angel on the board.
That being said, there are a couple of angels that I'm not the biggest fan of. These two could be replaced by two extra copies of Bruna, the Fading Light improve your inevitability. Akroma, Angel of Wrath folds to Path to Exile (unlike her red counterpart), and doesn't feel super good for an eight-drop. Reya Dawnbringer, while good, also loses to a Path, whereas Bruna will benefit your board-state the moment she hits the field. Also, Bruna can be flickered with Restoration Angel to start rebuilding the board faster (and possibly bring back Gisela for the meld).
So, there's one final thing that I noticed. Most of the Angels in your deck have a bagillion different keywords on them. So...what better jank way to win than a singleton copy of Odric, Lunarch Marshal? Just a thought.
