Enchantment — Aura
Enchanted creature gets +4/+4, has flying and first strike, and is an Angel in addition to its other types.
When enchanted creature dies, return Angelic Destiny to its owner's hand.

Infect counters can be Proliferated. Contagion Engine can pop out mid or late game an change everything. Contagion Engine can be almost a boardwipe vs one player with the -1 counters, especially if your commander is out.

That's fair! Honestly it's just kinda cat aggro overall with Angelic Destiny and usually Leonin Warleader as a finisher. I'll probably end up switching out Sanctuary Cat for Pride of the Clouds even if I'm emotionally attached

I have a few additions to the above response--it answered your main question, but I wanted to make sure your question of "what exactly is a creature type?" was fully explained as well.
"Creature Types" are the subtypes relevant to Creatures and Tribal Cards (ex. Elvish Promenade). The 261 (as of the time of writing) different types of creature type are defined by Rule 205.3m, which is fairly lengthy so I have covered it by the spoiler block below.
As noted in the above answer, each of these exist independently from one another, so a creature that "Creature - Elf Warrior" is both an Elf and Warrior.
However, there are a few points I think are also worth mentioning:
If your Winnower Patrol gains a creature type, such as with Angelic Destiny, then it will be a Creature - Elf Warrior Angel, and any of those three creature types could implicate Kinship. Or if it loses creature types, such as with Darksteel Mutation, it will only have the relevant creature types (Insect in this example).
As noted above, Tribal cards also have creature type. Winnower Patrol's kinship ability will "see" Elvish Promenade because Promenade shares the Elf creature type, even though it is not a creature.

I'd recommend Angelic Destiny, Invocation of Saint Traft, Sigarda's Aid, Hammer of Nazahn, and Trailblazer's Boots for your commander, utility like Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Mother of Runes, and Silent Arbiter, and adding some mana rocks like the Signets and Talismans.

Deck looks good overall, here are some thoughts I had after reading it:
Pacifism is pretty bad, and you don't really have any aura synergies with it. Iff you really want 8 removal spells, Journey to Nowhere is just way better. I think you could probably cut down to 6 total removal spells though since you have Skyclave Apparition. You could also try running Prismatic Ending, replacing a plains with a Sacred Foundry or something like that for a third color (and maybe adding some extra fetches).
I can't help noticing that you don't have any dig like Collected Company or tutors like Chord of Calling. CoCo is might not be the best here since you only have 22 hits which is far from enough. I think Chord of Calling is worth considering, especially if you decide to go for a more toolbox-valuetown build (maybe with some Sanctifier en-Vec, Auriok Champion, and Sanctum Prelate mainboard). It's probably fine without either of those but I just wanted to throw out some ideas.
You also don't have any real turn 1 plays, since Path to Exile and Rancor don't really count. Imo you should really have at least a few, so you don't start off every game already losing tempo on the first turn. The first suggestion I have for a 1 drop is Noble Hierarch, which makes all the types of mana you need early game and has some use mid-late game with exalted. She can also make blue mana if you want to exile a 3 cmc permanent with Prismatic Ending (so the foundry is probably not needed). My other suggestion is Esper Sentinel, since he either stalls the game by taxing your opponent or gives you tons of card advantage. Stick a Rancor, Angelic Destiny, or Wilt-Leaf Liege and you'll be drawing cards all day.
Happy brewing :)

SnakeByte77, I think I would remove Sage's Reverie to make room for Angelic Destiny , given that its abilities for draw and power increases are redundant through Kor Spiritdancer and All That Glitters , among other cards.

What would you take out to put Angelic Destiny if you could?

Angels are a very heavy tribe in CMC, and the mana curve of their deck is also very high. I would advise to put lighter and more effective cards for the strategy in place of heavy cards with appeal only to Flavor.
