When enchanted creature dies, return Angelic Destiny to its owner's hand.
Angelic Destiny Discussion

Not a bad idea. I think auras are widely overlooked and I see potential here.
I think there's room for the devotion mech to be strengthened for the benefit of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , and some room to even make the deck somewhat more competitive if you're interested.
I would consider cards like Worship , which become easier to cast with Hero of Iroas already maxed out in the MB, and Leyline of Sanctity which provides 2 white symbols for devotion to white. Each offer quite a frustrating foil to a good number of and burn and hate decks.
In order to make room, I would suggest boarding or removing at least 1 or more Hyena Umbra and Angelic Destiny each. I also suggest a slight thinning out of auras in general, try for no more than 20, to offer the player a contingent against hand flooding uncastable auras early game, and thus, mulligans.
Umbra Mystic makes Hyena Umbra a fair bit redundant, you have plenty offering first strike as it is, making first strike also I think a bit redundant, so even replacing Hyena Umbra with stronger, more mana costly white auras which can benefit from Hero of Iroas , would be another suggestion here.
This is the most painful suggestion, due to the $$ involved... If you can get your hands on 4x Stoneforge Mystic and at least 1x Sword of Fire and Ice , that there is a great combo for both drawing cards and dealing with decks with aura removal. I would recommend thy be at least in the sideboard.

Hell yeah! Another heroics deck! I have one too but Daxos the Returned commands mine, same idea tho.
Some creatures that I don't see here that could benefit the deck are Celestial Ancient , Danitha Capashen, Paragon Dawnbringer Charioteers , Graceblade Artisan , Lagonna-Band Trailblazer , Sram, Senior Edificer , Wingsteed Rider , Umbra Mystic and my personal favorite Thran Golem .
Some enchantments I really like in my deck are Celestial Mantle , Daybreak Coronet , Divine Favor , Face of Divinity , Griffin Guide , Hope Against Hope , On Serra's Wings Angelic Destiny and Bonds of Faith can go offensive or defensive. You should look into some umbras like Felidar Umbra and Hyena Umbra .
I realize I've only suggested white cards but that's the only overlapping color our decks share.
Sorry to spam this comment with so much but I got excited. I love the heroic mechanic and I'm glad to see other people utilizing it. A big enchanted +1 from me!

emlit thanks for the suggestions! I really like Angelic Destiny , as it helps with devotion for Iroas and it is recurable. If Baneslayer Angel wasn't as expensive I'd consider it haha but maybe after some testing I might have to splurge on it. Legion's Initiative is one I was looking at originally but cut for some other random enchantments so I might have to test with it. I like cards like Prison Term ...just not that it makes everyone paint you as a target haha

I run an Aureila build (Cardolan) which is geared a bit differently, but here are some suggestions which work well for me in Boros:
Angelic Destiny - Make anything an immediate threat; the recursion is ridiculous
Baneslayer Angel - Unfairly good, if you want to spend the money for her
Legion's Initiative - Great defense against board wipes
Prison Term - Underutilized card in EDH, but a real beast; use on Commanders to make people hate you

Hi! I really like your deck. What about Stoneforge Mystic and Enlightened Tutor ? Sigarda's Aid is also useful in any Voltron deck. It's vital to keep Ojutai untapped so take a look at Accorder's Shield and Cathar's Shield . Bladed Bracers must be used with Angelic Destiny . Invocation of Saint Traft is among my favorite cards in Azorius colors. Good luck in brewing!

Some cards to think about; Paladin of Atonement , Together Forever , Matter Reshaper , Angelic Destiny , Arena Rector (You'd have to add at least one more PW for that one I think), Demon of Dark Schemes
You also don't have Path to Exile , was that on purpose? Vindicate might be good as well. Liliana of the Veil ? Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip might actually be dope. That emblem would be nuts. Sorin, Solemn Visitor isn't terrible.
