If you're willing to deviate from the Angel plan, this deck is screaming for Squadron Hawk . Stalwart is decent, but the rest of the angels here are pretty behind the curve for pauper; you could consider Guardian of the Guildpact , but even that is probably more of a sideboard card. If you're going to stick to angels, I'd strongly advise going mono white; the splash just isn't worth it for a 4-mana 2/2 flyer that you can dump extra mana into to give protection temporarily, generally.
Also: Journey to Nowhere is going to be a better card most of the time over O-ring.
Potion of Healing isn't doing a whole lot, either; it replaces itself, but the deck doesn't have a method of taking advantage of the lifegain. If you're going to stick to a high mana curve, I'd suggest something like Traveler's Amulet , Wanderer's Twig , or Renegade Map - or better yet, just up the land count. 20 is very low with the amount of 4-drops you've got.

Are you sure you want this to be a modern deck? It could currently either be a modern or a pioneer deck, and you should probably choose one and stick with it.
If you choose modern, Doomed Traveler fits the theme of the deck pretty well. Teysa, Orzhov Scion is a powerhouse that gives all your creatures afterlife, doubles as removal, and is another instant-speed sac outlet. Honestly, she's the only reason I would consider playing an afterlife deck in modern. Xathrid Necromancer is another option that generates tons of tokens off of most of your creatures, and it works really well with Hero of Precinct One .
This deck definitely needs a playset of Fatal Push for removal which works in either format, plus maybe some Path to Exile or Vindicate if you choose to stick with modern. Mortify is bad in both formats so I'd cut it. 4x Kaya's Wrath is definitely overkill and might not be the best choice, since even though your board would have a bunch of spirits it would still wipe a lot of your creatures.
Giant Killer is just bad outside of standard. Athreos and Ethereal Absolution are also too slow, and I don't think Sorin adds enough to the gameplan to justify including him. Teysa Karlov obviously synergizes a lot but I'd take her out since she doesn't have any immediate board impact (while the other Teysa can have its abilities activated at instant speed to do a bunch of stuff in response). Not sure if Corpse Knight is worth it either. The other Athreos, Athreos, God of Passage , might be worth trying as a 1-of.

kirbysan It's not bad, but I don't like it as much as Doomed Traveler and the like. Making a creature is more useful than treasures or -1/-1 counters in aristocrat strategies. It's theoretically very strong if reanimated multiple times in one turn while Teysa's out to get a bunch of treasures, but that's a niche scenario.

I like the idea of Daybreak Chimera, but you'll get more value out of Conclave Phalanx for the life gain and because it is cast with convoke and not white mana source, it can often get cast just as early. Also it pairs nicely with Kor Skyfisher
Doomed Traveler is also a great turn one play as it can block early game and the spirit token it creates is good for getting damage in.

This deck looks pretty good, and after reading the comments, you seem to have put a lot of work into it. I do have a intentionally lower-powered deck with a basic aristocrat strategy. A card I really do like there is Doomed Traveler ( Doomed Dissenter is similar). Sgt.Pickles mentioned free sacrifice outlets. A very good, but very underrated one is Spawning Pit . You can sacrifice creatures, sometimes even in response to a kill spell, and then get multiple new tokens later. As many of your creatures have 1 toughness, Skullclamp could be a great addition, as well. If you were to include any combination of these three, Death Baron and Asha's Favor are what I'd cut for them. For removal spells, Ixalan's Binding is fine, but bonesplinter and/or Vicious Offering are great spells that even fit your strategy.

I'm a little confused, to be honest. I see a lot of sacrifice pay off but I'm not sure what you are trying to sacrifice. Something that makes a lot of tokens is great. Lingering Souls and Promise of Bunrei are decent examples. Cards like Dusk Legion Zealot , Wall of Omens , or Thraben Inspector are good for sacing as well since their job is over once they hit the battlefield. Another option is cards that replace themselves like Doomed Traveler or Hunted Witness . Idk just some thoughts hope it was helpful.

Looks like a fun deck! I may put something similar together with what I have.
Some instants would be Make a Stand to protect tokens from a board wipe

When I started playing Standard, I started with Innistrad (I learned and got into it with the Dragons vs. Knights Duel deck, but didn't play a real format until the fall), and My deck was a white weenie, centered around Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (she came along later, but I have to mention her, she's so great!!), Elite Vanguard, Doomed Traveler, Selfless Cathar, Elite Inquisitor, Unruly Mob, Mentor of the Meek, Fiend Hunter, and topped by Angelic Overseer.
When Thraben Recuiter enters the battlefield, create X 1/1 white Human creature tokens, then put X +1/+1 counters among Humans you control.
I'd like to see a Kaldheim common, considering the cards already spoiled.
