Some cards I would recommend you consider:
Entreat the Angels (best as a one- or two-of)

janederscore if you put in the deck Bishop of Wings , Righteous Valkyrie , Seraph Sanctuary , Cleric Class and Angel of Vitality I recommend you (unlesh money issues) to put at least a couple of resplendents in there. Thay are a great finisher and with so many life gain you will be activating it passively just by playing angels and doing your stuff. She's amazing. You have 12 different life gain triggers, I can't speak without trying it but I believe Cleric Class will end up neting you more +1/+1 than the other one, plus you can put them all in one creature and both the first and last modes of the class feel to me more useful to this deck. Legion Angel is a total overachiever, a must, she's been the MVP in my deck (which is my main that I use against tier1 decks and win with it) many matches. Yeah, first being bolt range sounds shitty but, well, it's not. It generates more value for your opponent than for you? Well... No, it doesn't, mor e like the total opposite. Are they going to have 3 bolts to stop the 3 straight turns of putting and angel and triggering all our stuff, even if it dies? No they are not going to, it overwhelmes opponents, they need to put a toon of resources to kill all of them while your angel replaces itself and nets you some triggers along the way. And she will be your most aggressive creature, the 4 power with evasion will matter and is a nice fast clock for the oponnent. Serra Avenger also dies to bolt, and you are rarely going to have 2 of them at the same time to play them together to make sure one survives. It's a dead card the whole early game, I wouldn't put more than 2 avengers in, you don't want to draw it until you can play it. I'll strongly suggest 2x Avengers and 2x Legion. But even if you want 4 avengers that's OK, is not a bad card, but at least give legion a try, you will be pleasently surprised (as I was, because I thought the same as you until I tried it). Yeah emeria's call doesn't ad much. No need for it. I told you just so you bear it in mind (I have to say anyway that I am from Europe and everything here is somewhere between 1/3rd and 2/3rds the price, so it's just like 2 bucks here) I've tried them, as sad as it is, I can assure you there is no black valkirye worth playing in modern. I do think that firgas retribution is slightly better than starnheim unleashed, but I don't think it's 60 bucks better if you know what I mean, specially if money is an issue. I'll rather spend that money in resplendent angels, they will win you more matches in the long run and is an easier card to sell if the moment arrives than mediocre lands. Plus it's price is growing lately, so maybe it's even a small investment.
The deck looks much better now than yesterday anyway, good luck fellow angel player, I am sure you will have a lot of fun with it!

janederscore run Bishop of Wings and think about Speaker of the Heavens , I know they are not angels but thay are more "angel tribal" than most angels, they are pretty cheap and they will add more value to the deck than the outcast or the segovian. Specially bishop, she's an MVP. It helps a lot holding the fort, activating Righteous passive and will give you tokens to keep giving them "papercuts" and blocking.
If you don't want to run bishop because it's not an angel I suggest you take out Resplendent Angel because you don't really have any way to trigger it but his own ability in the "probably too late" time and the 2 scrolls, and it's by far the most spensive card of the deck. With bishop and Seraph Sanctuary you can trigger it T3.
Out Bloodline Pretender and Paladin Class in Angel of Vitality and Cleric Class . They do comparable things, but I feel thay they will fit better and add more to the deck (assuming you put Bishop of Wings in, which you totally should). They will help you a lot reaching the 27 life mark for righteous (your biggest wincon for what I see) and for Speaker of the Heavens if you decide to play it.
Out scroll of Avacyn. In 2 Legion Angel and another 2 in the side. Surprisingly good. You don't need 5 life with all the gain you will get with the previous changes, more than enough to trigger resplendent many of your turns passively.
Youre most mana intensive cards are two 4cmc cards (4 with legion angel) , so your are OK with 23 lands. Take out a plains. Probably even take out two plains and add an Emeria's Call Flip (it doesn't add much anyway because you are rarely going to cast it and is a couple of bucks, so you can pass on that one if you want).
If you want to go even cheaper, just go mono white, most of the price is in the lands. Changeling outcast is not good enough, you should change it for one of the previously commented cards. And firgas retribution is not that good either. I've tried it and It's best part is the second hability but even that is not that good, because the creatures it allows you to kill are the ones that you could normally take care of in battle.and you rarely care about taking out blockers for the 3rd ability because most of your stuff flies. Put Starnheim Unleashed in, it's neither better or worse than friga's retribution as a finisher, and it will save you 50-60 dollars in lands.
Trying to think on the cheapest end of the spectrum that's how I'll probably both improve and cheapen the deck. I hope it helps!

Hey amicdeep thanks for the comment! Bretagard Stronghold it's a interesting card,I will evaluate it. For Trelasarra, Moon Dancer and Cleric Class i evalute their price when "Adventures in the Forgotten Realms" it's put on sale;for this cards also think a new deck based on Conclave Mentor , Angel of Vitality and Recumbent Bliss . I work on it!^^

Was Seraph Sanctuary 's colorless mana too clunky for this deck? It would really go off with Angel of Vitality and since it's +1 they would stack nicely for a good chunk of health with every angel you play.

This deck is great but I would recommend Angel of Vitality . It increases your life gain (which you have already done a great job with.) and it is an angel.

Looks like a fun starter commander! Black White lifegain is a definite fun archtype to build, maybe work up towards something like Karlov of the Ghost Council or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic ! I know starting out budget is important as you don't want to invest in cards you might not like, so I've made the recommendations with that in mind!
Spirit Loop seems like it could have a home in your deck, as it's a consistent 2cmc spell that you can keep casting and getting back to trigger your commander.
Well of Lost Dreams Dawn of Hope Cosmos Elixir Are all sources of card draw that synergize with your lifegain gameplan! Your commander's colors are notoriously known for lacking card draw and ramp, so these might help keep you in the game!
Blind Obedience seems perfect for your deck!
Lurrus of the Dream-Den offers consistent recursion and allows you to cast lower cmc permanents. Kami of False Hope could also pair with this really well, as it's basically a fog effect that you can cast for cheap over and over!
In your current list, it appears a little removal light (which to be fair is meta dependent). since you're playing white, you have access to cards like Darksteel Mutation and Reprobation , which can be a headache for your opponents to deal with if you enchant their commander. Also Victimize is a great catchall removal spell.
For cuts, I'd recommend evaluating your cards in terms of whether they actively win the game or help you do what you want. In your current list Fortified Rampart I've found to be underwhelming and doesn't further your gameplan. I'd also recommend replacing the following: Star-Crowned Stag Skeleton Archer Reaper of Night Kor Scythemaster Inspiring Captain Hailstorm Valkyrie Gargoyle Sentinel Fiend Binder Angel of the Dawn Courier Griffin Silverflame Ritual Chaplain's Blessing Splendid Agony Djeru's Renunciation Sinister Possession .
That being said, it can sometimes be fun just trying your best with whatever cards are lying around! Hopefully the suggestions can give your deck a little pep!
