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.

First, I'd run a bit more aggressive removal package.
- Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, and Winds of Abandon are all fantastic cards. All three are strong removal in either the early or late game, with the final one becoming an absolutely devastating sweeper. I'd get rid of Crib Swap and Pacifism.
- If she is having a problem with noncreature permanents and needs some removal that can deal with them, Generous Gift and Chaos Warp are generally better than Banishing Light.
- Blasphemous Act is a great way to reset the board while leaving mana open to cast a new threat.
Personally, I'd lean into a group slug theme--burn everyone equally, with the hope of buffing Anya. She's already running Manabarbs, which is a great option. Burning Earth is another great option. Spellshock can be quite powerful as well in some metas, providing everyone else is casting more spells per turn than she is (she has some large angels, so that's not infeasible).
Or, if she does not want to go a hyper-aggressive group-burn route, Red and White have some great ways to slow down the game. Stranglehold and Aven Mindcensor take away a lot of other deck's primary advantages. Blood Moon can be a nightmare to play around considering how common nonbasics are in EDH. Rest in Peace is an all-around good card and can even take out players if you combo it with Helm of Obedience.
Smothering Tithe is a great option for Ramp, something Boros is lacking and this deck in particular really wants.

Very cool deck!
If you are going to run only one indestructible creature, I would go for one that you can play easily and that you can actually use to burn enemies, like Hazoret the Fervent or revert to the Stuffy Doll, which was infinitely better than the Colossus.
Is it a choice not to have Exsanguinate?
I would lose Forsaken Sanctuary, Orzhov Basilica, Orzhov Guildgate, Scoured Barrens, Shambling Vent, Transguild Promenade and replace them with some of these: Command Tower, Clifftop Retreat, Dragonskull Summit, Smoldering Marsh, Luxury Suite, Tainted Peak, Graven Cairns, Fetid Heath and Rugged Prairie.
