Hey, it's great you're doing this for your daughter, but this is deck is not aggro, not close. It's midrange and honestly it's better that its midrange since aggro is less good in multiplayer Commander and aggro is not what you want with Angels.
Angels are about doing combat damage with flying to your opponents which Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is much better at than Anya, Merciless Angel and you have Gisela. As General Gisela doubles the flying combat damage that Angels do including herself. All Angels you control benefit from Gisela. Gisela can also help with the crack back since damage dealt to you is reduced. Anya is better as part of the 99 than as General.
For starters to upgrade your deck I would get away from aggro and focus more on how you can strengthen the midrange strategy with Angels. Examples of upgrades to improve midrange are cutting Embereth Shieldbreaker for Knight of the White Orchid, cutting Fumiko the Lowblood for Solemn Simulacrum, cutting Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas for Anger.
Cards you could cut:
- Dwarven Mine
- Idyllic Grange
- Phyrexian Soulgorger
- Embereth Shieldbreaker
- Fumiko the Lowblood
- Meteor Blast
- Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas
- Jareth, Leonine Titan
- Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh
- Fiendslayer Paladin
- Tajic, Legion's Edge
- Desolation Giant
- Truefire Captain
- Hunted Dragon
- Razia's Purification
- Crystal Slipper
Some other cards you could add:
- Lands: Battlefield Forge, Sacred Foundry, Rugged Prairie, Sunbaked Canyon, Clifftop Retreat
- Ramp: Talisman of Conviction, Smothering Tithe, Pearl Medallion
- Angels: Lyra Dawnbringer, Resplendent Angel, Aurelia, the Warleader
- Removal: Swords to Plowshares, Generous Gift
- Skullclamp: use it with 1/1 Soldiers that Assemble creates for a drawing engine.
- Luminarch Ascension: can be a repeatable source of Angels and it can activate fast since it looks at each opponents end step.
- Boros Charm
- Blind Obedience
- Serra Ascendant
Good luck with your deck.

Hey BMHKain, these are the changes that I would make:
- Null Rod --> Meekstone
- Humility --> Ward of Bones
- Cabal Ritual --> Alms Collector
- Culling the Weak --> Cradle of Vitality
- Leyline of the Void (your general serves pretty much the same role as this card) --> Sunbond
- Ashes of the Abhorrent --> Rule of Law
- Athreos, Shroud-Veiled (your general shuts Athreos' ability down) --> God-Pharaoh's Statue
- Diabolic Intent --> Night Dealings
- Trepanation Blade (interesting but unreliable) --> Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

There is a lot of things in this deck that I see can be upgraded or removed.
First, I'll suggest some cards you could put in.
More ways to stop the opponent's creatures would help. Lawmage's Binding , Frogify , and Kasmina's Transmutation stop creatures from using their abilities. Immolating Glare , Conclave Tribunal and Path to Exile are also things you should consider.
Some cards to cut would be:
Hope this helps!

DivineKhaos, I would have to disagree with you there on Instill Energy being one of the weaker cards. Having that haste and pseudo-vigilance can be game breaking, not only that it also has interaction with Faeburrow Elder and Bloom Tender allowing you to double tap them for mana. Instill Energy is one of those rare cards that gives us haste without access to artifacts and red.
Flickering Ward is also one of those double duty cards that has more than one use. While it's great if you have Sigarda's Aid or Leyline of Anticipation out to flash and cantrip off of Tuvasa every turn. It's other use is for ending the game. In conjunction with Blind Obedience and infinite mana from Bloom Tender / Faeburrow Elder and Pemmin's Aura you go into infinite extort and drain everyone's life. This also incidentally can lead to infinite draws with an enchantress out which is why we add in Abundance as well so you can prevent yourself from decking out.
There are a couple hidden synergies and reason behind some cards I run, which is why I find Tuvasa always so refreshing to play. You have answers to a majority of the situation and while the deck is simple that anyone can play it, piloting it to it's maximum potential does include playing it through many many games and seeing what works and what doesn't work. Also accidentally hitting an infinite and decking myself out may have warranted the inclusion of certain cards :P

Funkydiscogod, Yeah I tend to agree with you, it's just never going to be modern worthy. Instead I replaced it with the playset of Blind Obedience that I have on hand. Realistically, the deck is meant to troll your opponent not necessarily win per say.
