White card draw is a tricky thing but I feel there are better options than devoting spots to Cloudshift. Mesa Enchantress could work; Mind's Eye is a bit steep but effective. Seer's Sundial, Staff of Nin, Thraben Inspector. Your deck could also use Mentor of the Meek, if some of the more expensive cards are taken out like we talked about this guy may be the best card draw source as playing a Wall of Omens now yields two draws. It may be something worth playtesting.

Also in regards to Celestial Mantle, it may be a bit taxing on the curve but its a great card, if you find it useful then go for it, or else it can be removed to make the deck more focused and consistent. Student of Warfare is a card I love so my heart says keep it, I would almost recommend dropping the Thalia's Lancers instead seeing how it is high on your curve and is, in my opinion, an overrated card.
And a suggestion I forgot to make earlier is Seraph Sanctuary for the mana base, it helps with angels.

Acrobatic Maneuver and Cloudshift are things that can be taken out; as games go on you wont want these cards as you don't run any special combos with them. Gift of Immortality is another card that whilst attractive I find largely useless, but that is personal opinion. Authority of the Consuls is a nice card in a slow deck like this so definitely keep it, as for Sphere of Safety, I see Ghostly Prison being more effective here, Sphere of Safety is more for prison scheme decks not angel beatdown.
And to answer your question about Cast Out, I personally feel like it doesn't get enough credit, it has the versatility of Oblivion Ring with the added bonus of cycling, meaning if you get caught in a bad hand you have an additional opportunity with it to draw the card that gets you going. Plus it never hurts having more flash when you know your opponent can play a threat at any time; Cast Out can shut off a game ending combo, Banishing Light cannot as you die before it can be played.

Also in terms of sideboard you want to be able to hate on other matchups. Rest in Peace, Grafdigger's Cage, and Relic of Progenitus enable graveyard hate for the dredge matchup. Leyline of Sanctity for burn. Keep Mirran Crusader but cut the other knights, Odric, Lunarch Marshal is personal preference. As is Stony Silence is a staple of white sideboards. And then from there prioritize removal and converting to aggro. Cast Out for removal, and Mirran Crusader for aggro.

Path to Exile is a must in this deck, I have played mono-white angels before and can say from experience that having that cheap removal is so important. As for ramp, Weathered Wayfarer is your best one-drop plus it synergizes with Path to Exile well so you don't have to worry about your opponent getting too far ahead. Gold Myr or Palladium Myr could be worth a look, I always found Gold Myr useful. Heliod, God of the Sun is not really necessary here unless you just love the card, and Akroma, Angel of Wrath is a single minded card. I would recommend cutting her completely and investing in an Akroma's Memorial as it affects all creatures not one that can just be Path to Exiled.

Maybe Naga Vitalist over Druid of the Cowl. It just allows for better mana fixing in a pinch.
