Creature — Angel
Flying, double strike
You have hexproof.
If your life total would be reduced to 0 or less, instead transform this and your life total becomes 3. Then if this didn't transform via this card's ability, you lose the game.

No, this doesn't work. Enduring Angel Flip doesn't have a triggered ability (an ability that starts with "when", "whenever", or "at"). Rather, it has a replacement effect (most often indicated by "instead", "as", or "with") that replaces the event of your life total being reduced to 0 or less. You don't have an opportunity to respond to the replacement effect being applied, it just happens in place of the event it's replacing. If you're at 1 life and activate Wall of Blood, instead of your life total going to 0, Enduring Angel will transform and set your life total to 3 (the Wall activation will still resolve). You can't interrupt this.
Another note: the rules of the game don't allow for "infinity" as a value. You need to choose a point to stop so that the game can keep moving and actually use whatever big number you stop at.

Suppouse i have a Wall of Blood on the battlefield and an Enduring Angel Flip. Can i pay all my life with Wall of Bloods activated ability, then when the ability of Enduring Angel Flip triggers, hold my priority, pay life again, and since i have negative life, the ability triggers again and so on in order to get it to infinite? or do i just automatically lose when i respond to the ability the first time and doesn't trigger again?

Have you considered Scroll of Avacyn? Once you have an angel on the battlefield it's 2 mana for 5 life and to draw a card.
I also noticed you don't have Graveyard hate. Have you considered Angel of Finality? Since you can't have Rest in Peace in your deck without messing up your graveyard interaction it makes a great alternative.
I hope this helps. Happy Hunting

Hey, it's Dylan's friend, Justin. He asked me to weigh in on the list. So... Hello! The list looks very good, especially if it's your first time building a deck. Plus, Angels are always cool and fun.
If I was to offer any criticism, well, first even before I talk cards and strategy, I noticed the deck is labelled as being *Standard. It's not, but it is very close to being so. So you get to make a choice here. Do you want a deck that you could play against other people in a friendly, competitive environment or do you want just a fun deck to play casually that you wouldn't need to update? You are so close to the former, that I might just recommend that. But if you didn't want to do that, that's fine, too.
If you wanted a standard list you just need to replace the cards marked in red text. there are not many of them and some, I would recommend cutting altogether anyway. For instance, the one mana cards could go. Segovian Angel is an angel, but it's not very impactful and won't be worth the card if you draw it early or late. Soul Warden is an amazing card, but it only really excels when a lot of creatures are entering the battlefield (which your deck doesn't really support) or when cards are triggering by gaining any amount of life - Archangel of Thune is a great example of this, but your deck only has one. AND at that point, we might as well cut the non-standard cards. I would replace the Go for the Throat with Infernal Grasp and Vanishing Verse and I might go as far as playing 4 copies of each of those. I would play 4x Skyclave Cleric Flip or Ambitious Farmhand Flip (just to add some consistency with hitting land drops. Speaking of lands, definitely add some duals and maybe some utility lands. Emeria's Call Flip Great Hall of Starnheim Brightclimb Pathway Flip Scoured Barrens Shattered Sanctum Shineshadow Snarl Silverquill Campus Snowfield Sinkhole Are all in standard and you can choose how much $ you want to spend. I would settle on x8 dual lands and 0-2 utility lands from among those. I would also just play x4 Righteous Valkyrie, that to me looks like your best card and has the best synergy with the rest of the deck. The deck also looks soft to early aggressive decks... so I might consider adding in 1-2 Doomskar to help with that. Lastly, I might try to find room for a few of these cards, but they are more preference-based as I think they deck looks very playable already. I would try to jam maybe a few of these cards: Enduring Angel Flip Starnheim Unleashed Haunting Voyage.
If you didn't want to worry about standard legality, I would find someway somehow to find room for some amount of Baneslayer Angel. Maybe a Linvala, the Preserver as a cool one-of and if you wanted to spend the $, Resplendent Angel seems like a perfect include as x1-x4 of.
Hope that was helpful! And... take what I say with a grain of salt, I'm not exactly what you would call an active Magic player.

If a transforming double-faced card is instructed to transform, it will, unless it can't for some reason (like a daybound/nightbound card). Bloodline Keeper Flip and Enduring Angel Flip as copies of Edgar, Charmed Groom Flip will come back into play as their back sides (Lord of Lineage and Angelic Enforcer), regardless of what side they were on when they became copies of Edgar.

I know that if a card without transform becomes a copy and enters transformed it doesn't enter at all. But I'm not sure what happens with creatures with transform like Bloodline Keeper Flip or Enduring Angel Flip.

Enduring Angel Flipis interesting, but seems really niche. The fact that she can only flip if you hit 0 life makes me sad. Cool card, probably not for this deck, though. Pristine Angel seems great but as I learned with my Rebbec/Glacian deck and my Multani, Maro-Sorcerer deck, protection like effects can also have the drawback of not being able to target your own stuff.
Concerted Effort seems insane for Akroma decks. I don't really think it'd be worth a spot here just to mainly add vigilance. There are only a handful of creatures that add other keywords that would make it worth it. It's a good recommendation and I added it to the maybeboard for anyone else interested, though!

Looks like an awesome deck! I really liked when Serra showed up in MH and have been trying to make her fit into things ever since. If nothing else, it's a lower cost serra angel, and that's not so bad :)
My only idea for this deck is that it might help to have more defensive creatures to keep Serra on the board. Angels with vigilance and flying can be really great in EDH because a lot of the time there is no downside to just swinging away. So, I don't know, there are a bunch of cool vigilance angels out there, maybe some of them might work with your deck. And you can always run Concerted Effort to really use those keywords to their fullest. Concerted Effort and Pristine Angel play very nice together if you can get the combo. Getting pro everything on your creatures and hopefully getting vigilance on pristine angel is a doosey. Effort can also be great with Enduring Angel Flip who gives you hexproof, and that can be randomly good sometimes.
I don't know, just some random thoughts :) It's early and my brain is a bit foggy, but hope it's a few ideas. I really love my mono-white edh deck because it makes you really stretch and figure out how to solve problems. People give white edh decks a bad rap, but I think they have a lot of potential.
