Whenever a creature is put into your graveyard from battlefield, you may sacrifice Angelic Renewal. If you do, return that card to the battlefield.

I suggest Angelic Renewal
The word bury is counted as a sacrifice.

So now I'm going to organize this post is from different types of cards and alternatives and/or strictly better cards that have the same Converted mana cost!
Let's start with enchantments! It seems like your all over the place, which is fine, but you have aura enchantments and land enchantments. which seems a little weird to me! Normally you want to either go a route for your deck, and this seems unorganized, so let us fix that! Serra Aviary is a bad card, cause it also gives opponents fliers +1/+1, we don't want this. So id suggest either going with some like Citadel Siege cause sure, it won't buff all creatures, and it'll give a boost to one creature you want per turn, or it can be used defensively which is always a plus! I'd also suggest going Dictate of Heliod cause it gives an extra +1/+1 for one extra mana, AND IT HAS FLASH! For cards that are better for the 4 cmc are Light from Within , Force of Virtue , Marshal's Anthem .
For protection cards or cards that accumulate value, instead of Angelic Renewal and Angelic Accord , cards which can be good, but you don't have a whole lof of life gain or recursion to run these two! So I'd suggest cards like Sigil of the New Dawn , Kindred Boon , Privileged Position and Asceticism are 100% more effective in protecting your creatures or giving good value.
Now that we got enchantments out of the way! lets work on these instants! I love some of these instants, Absorb is a fun card that I'm 100% gonna get, same with Archmage's Charm ! Disdainful Stroke , Essence Scatter (and the like), Commencement of Festivities and Guardian Angel are all weaker versions of cards like Mana Drain and Counterspell which I'd upgrade with. I'd also suggest getting some artifact/enchantment removal such as Krosan Grip one of the best in this as it has split second, another card I highly recommend is Bant Charm one of the most versatile instant printed in these colors. some other instants i enjoy and have seen good results with are Teferi's Protection , Plasm Capture / Mana Drain , Render Silent , Arcane Denial , Dawn Charm and Heroic Intervention . Those are just some of my recommendations! I may have some more but You'd really need to let me know what direction you want to go!!
For sorceries, you're in gosh darn green! WHERE ARE THE RAMP SPELLS?!!??!!? Add Farseek , and since we have big fatty CMC angels, Recross the Paths puts in some work! Kodama's Reach and Explosive Vegetation are better than cards like Rampant Growth because 1) it gives card advantage (2 lands for 1 card) and 2) gives us more mana to work with during the late game! (this is when angel decks typically win). other ramp spells I use are Cultivate and Traverse the Outlands .
I've noticed this deck does not have a SINGLE BOARD WIPE, as big as our angels are for the CMC, we won't be able to cast them until later, board wipes are essential to have especially since you aren't running any pillow forts kind of cards, I HIGHLY recommend adding some, cards that I've always had in my white decks are Austere Command , Rout , Supreme Verdict , Cleansing Nova , Descend upon the Sinful , Planar Cleansing and Mass Calcify . Some other sources that are more focused with tribal is Harsh Mercy sure each player gets to pick a creature type, but that typically is one creature for them, and of course we'll pick angels, so we get the upper-hand in this!
We need some card draw, and this is important as I don't see any in this deck and that is a HUGE mistake. Think about adding cards like Rishkar's Expertise , Praetor's Counsel , Blue Sun's Zenith , Sphinx's Revelation , Finale of Revelation just to name a few that come to mind.
For Lands, these look just.....fine albeit slow, but not quite optimized. I totally understand how people on a budget don't run cards like Misty Rainforest and the like. But as a 3 color deck, I suggest adding in cards like Temple of Enlightenment and Temple of Plenty at least you'll get value from them coming in tapped. Other cards I'd suggest are Krosan Verge , Prairie Stream , Flooded Grove , Wooded Bastion , Seaside Citadel , Path of Ancestry , Forbidden Orchard (cause what is a 1/1 to our angels? PFFT) other lands that give some utility in a pinch are: Scattered Groves and Irrigated Farmland ! other good cards are Glacial Fortress (and it's kin), Hinterland Harbor and Temple Garden !
For Artifacts, I see the signets, I don't typically run the
and X signets just cause I like my land ramp better and won't get destroyed with target removal or artifact/enchantment wipes. but as a 3 color deck, you 100% NEED
basically makes all your mana problems go away, just tap lands for whatever color you need! If you're trying to go for some voltronish cards, I'd suggest going like
, which basically secures that you keep whatever creature you want alive for the rest of the game (unless they exile it with a spell somehow).
is also a good card as people won't want to block because it exiles shit, which is GREAT, let me tell you how many times people didn't block because they wanted to keep their creature(s).
For tribal support cards, there is a very small pool to chose from, So you might want to grab a Vanquisher's Banner , Herald's Horn , Urza's Incubator , Door of Destinies , Coat of Arms , Stoneforge Masterwork and Cryptic Gateway are some cards to look at!
Ok, lets finally get this creature situation fixed! first of, YOU'RE AN ANGEL DECK WITHOUT ITS PRIME GURL!?! WHERE IS MY Avacyn, Angel of Hope ?!?!?!??!!?!?!? I'm disappointed!!!! But for real, add her.
Other cards considering should be Metallic Mimic (if you're going for a 1/1 counter theme.) Solemn Simulacrum should go in here, he's just too good not to have here! Rhonas the Indomitable is a great mana sink, and if you really need to give trample to your creatures, Nylea, God of the Hunt is also a good alternative. Resplendent Angel is a great 3 cmc angel, don't underestimate this gurl! Sephara, Sky's Blade is also a great (shittier) version of our gurl Avacyn, Angel of Hope but still a good effect none-the-less! Iridescent Angel , for a 7 mana angel, I was hesitant at running her in my jenara deck, but has proved to be SO GOSHDARN STRONG! Can literally take ANY damage from ANYTHING (don't mention the Eldrazi to this gurl) but it has soaked up a lot of damage over my games. Archangel of Tithes is a great 4 cmc angel that gives taxes for attacking and defending! great include! Angel of Invention a fabulous card, especially if you have something that gives +1/+1 counters, say a Bow of Nylea , is a great addition to our squad! Angel of Serenity is a good card here as well! great recursion for this deck! since we're in bant, Stoic Angel is also a good include! Akroma, Angel of Wrath can't go wrong with an 8/8 creature with so many keywords and protection(s)!
Also, there is ONE card that is SO GOSHDARN UNDERRATED AND NEVER PLAYED and has literally been the BIGGEST beater I've EVER seen is non-other than Selfless Squire . THIS GURL...Where are my words for this card. It's a fog effect but you get a MASSIVE creature that has to be answered or your opponent die! I've had people swing at me for 20+ damage, not worried because of Selfless Squire and she becomes a huge creature, give her trample and/or indestructible, good game! This gurl is so badass she can oftentimes beat an ELDRAZI TITAN 1v1 (in terms of power/toughness). Best and most fun card I'VE EVER PLAYED IN A CREATURE! 50/10 would recommend!

I think Holy Light would be a great inclusion to the deck, as White has very few ways of dealing with masses of tokens efficiently. This card lets you do that without affecting your own smaller creatures.
You have Suture Priest twice in your list, under board control and Life Gain.
Survival Cache seems like a great card for your deck. You'll most likely be the player with the most life anyways, and this gives you two life gain triggers and will most likely draw you two cards.
Children of Korlis could be a good "Fog" effect for you.
Exile seems like a good fit for removal in your deck.
Seems a shame to pass up on Martyr of Sands . It only gets you one trigger, but it's still a lot of life, which is worth something.
Seraph of Dawn is an absolute beast in this format. the big butt means it survives a lot of removal and combat, and putting equipment on it is amazing.
Along the same lines, Student of Ojutai really dishes out the lifegain for you on a great body, especially considering how few creatures you're playing.
I feel like most of your lifelink creatures are not really worth playing. They're going to be easily blocked and killed in most situations and not net you much of an advantage. I'd say only the ones that gain your some sort of card advantage are really worth playing. I could be wrong about Healer's Hawk, though.
Lastly, you have plenty of ways to protect your commander, but I would just like to suggest Angelic Renewal . You can play this before your commander and not have to hold mana up all the time for it. Same goes for Benevolent Bodyguard . This lets you play a much tighter, more efficient game plan.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Nice upgrade of the precon. Cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:
- Contagion Engine
- Contagion Clasp
- Righteous Aura
- Seal of the Guildpact
- Helm of the Gods
- Champion's Helm
- Thoughtrender Lamia
Proliferate isn't doing much here except giving you more experience counters and that's not worth it instead play more enchantments to get experience counters?
Consider adding more low mana cost enchantments to get experience counters faster? Flickering Ward is very good because it's one mana enchantment that can be an engine to get experience counters while also protecting Daxos from targeted removal from the color of protection you choose. Also excellent with Mesa as a draw engine. Kaya's Ghostform another one mana enchantment that can help to pseudo protect Daxos by reanimating him when he dies or is exiled. Because Daxos is only three mana and he can be a repeatable source of tokens then consider less creatures? Board wipes that kill all creatures are good with enchantment strategies and with a Commander who can create creatures after a wipe.
Can add enchantments to protect/reanimate Daxos from your own or opponents' board wipes:
Tutors that don't break the bank that can get an aura/enchantment are helpful:
Expanding on enchantments that disrupt your opponents can buy you more time to get experience counters and make Spirits:
Once you have a lot of experience counters then you don't need to really cast lots of enchantments. Can instead utilize Daxos's ability to make creatures without casting them. Which is good with enchantments that only let players play one spell per turn. This disrupts your opponents more than you and in some cases shuts down entire opponent strategies like combos:
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, I already commented on your deck two months ago :)
Kokusho, the Evening Star suggested by crash328 is a good win condition with Teysa with a sac outlet such as Viscera Seer . I use it in my casual Teysa deck as a win condition. You can create a mini engine with Kokusho using Sun Titan with Animate Dead (reanimate Kokusho) or Kaya's Ghostform (when enchanted Kokusho dies he comes back onto the battlefield) or Angelic Renewal (sac it when Kokusho dies and he comes back onto the battlefield). Titan can reanimate one of Animate, Ghostform or Renewal letting you do this interaction when Titan ETB or attacks.
Titan can be a win condition without having to even attack because he can reanimate when he ETB. Combining Titan with Renewal or enchanted with Ghostform, an aristocrat and a sac outlet such as Carrion Feeder . I'm a big fan of Titan even without combos in a causal deck with Teysa because he can reanimate Skullclamp or many other creatures who have interaction with Teysa.

Hey, good start.
Budget ($3 or less each) lands to consider adding to improve the manabase:
- Command Tower : one of the best lands for multicolored decks in Commander.
- Exotic Orchard
- Opal Palace
- Nomad Outpost
- Caves of Koilos
- Battlefield Forge
- Foreboding Ruins
- Concealed Courtyard
- Ash Barrens
- Canyon Slough
- Barren Moor
- Forgotten Cave
- Secluded Steppe
The Cycle lands and Barrens are cards with cycling to power Astral Drift. Since they're lands they don't take up valuable deck spots to include more cycling.
Budget Angels/Demons/Dragons and cards that have good interaction with them to consider adding:
- Restoration Angel : ETB ability, blink Kaalia.
- Dragon Tempest : give your flying creatures haste.
- Eldrazi Displacer : repeatable blink, but not an Angel/Demon/Dragon and requires colorless mana sources from lands or mana rocks.
- Utvara Hellkite : among the best Dragons in Commander.
- Karmic Guide : ETB ability, reanimate Kaalia.
- Magister of Worth : ETB ability, reanimate Kaalia as well as every other creature in your graveyard or destroy all other creatures on the battlefield.
- Angel of Despair : ETB ability, destroy any one permanent.
- Bloodgift Demon : repeatable no mana cost draw at your upkeep.
If making blink a theme because of Kaalia then consider including more strong Angels/Demons/Dragons with good ETB abilities to be able to blink them.
Budget card upgrades to consider:
- Swords to Plowshares > Lightning Bolt
- Generous Gift > Lightning Helix
- Diabolic Tutor > Past in Flames
- Final Parting > Obzedat's Aid
- Animate Dead > Aid the Fallen
- Angelic Renewal > Return from Extinction
- Read the Bones > Ransack the Lab
- Unburial Rites > Blood for Bones
- Commander's Sphere > Darksteel Ingot
- Talisman of Indulgence > Worn Powerstone
- Liliana's Triumph > Diabolic Edict
Other cards to consider cutting:
- Cinder Barrens
- Orzhov Guildgate
- Wind-Scarred Crag
- Myriad Landscape
- Scorch Spitter
- Rakdos Firewheeler
- Scampering Scorcher
- Segovian Angel
- Virtus the Veiled
- Volcanic Dragon
- Zombie Infestation
