I think this deck lacks identity. From what you've said, you're trying to be an Orzhov lifegain deck, but there are so many cards that don't fit with that plan and/or don't bring a lot of value to the table. We should also probably just make this a Clerics deck (with Angel of Destiny), as that fits the lifegain build and packs extra synergy.

First, I think Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose should be a four-of in the deck. He's just so good in a lifegain deck. Righteous Valkyrie should probably be in here as well, as it helps gain life and provides a buff when you do. Speaker of the Heavens should also be a four-of, as it gains some small life and when you hit 27 starts really giving value! If we're going Clerics, Orah, Skyclave Hierophant is a good idea.

As for cards that don't give a lot of value, Dream Devourer , Firja, Judge of Valor , Giant Killer , Skemfar Shadowsage , Invoke the Divine , Light of Hope , Revitalize , Poison the Cup , and Pacifism all probably need to go. There are better options for what most of them do, and the rest you don't need the effects of. Doomskar too, because you're a deck that likes a full boardstate (lots of creatures) so you don't want to be wiping the board almost ever.

There were several removal options in what I pointed out. Bloodchief's Thirst and Heartless Act are good replacements, but you don't want too much removal, you should be focused on your own board most of the time.

Don't forget as well that having a list of mainly 1-2x cards won't make for a consistent deck. Ideally, you have as many of your good cards as possible.

Those are my initial thoughts. There's some value lost in the list even after those edits, but it's a good start, I think.

You have a lotta situational spot removal. Not sure what your meta's like, but I'd take out Go for the Throat and Doom Blade at least... Possibly Dismember . It largely depends on what your meta's like, but four or five spot removers and three-to-five sweepers tends to be enough... particularly when you have some good card draw. Unfortunately, Kaalia's best card draw comes in the form of demons. Most notably Vilis, Broker of Blood .

In terms of creatures to take out, Firja, Judge of Valor looks like your most expendable one to me, but it's hard to whether or not that's just my personal bias talking, lol. Never much liked her myself.

Here's my Kaalia deck, in case it gives you ideas: Hardcore Heavenly Inferno

Hey, well done on a $50 budget. You have good card sense if you're new on such a low budget.

I will try to match my suggestions with cards to consider cutting that are close to or equal in price. Some changes to consider:

Swords to Plowshares is the most expensive card here and you have many other removal spells to make up for not having it. Sol Ring is a staple mana rock in Commander and it's more ramp that can help to cast high CMC Angels. With Angels repeatable low mana cost ramp is more important then a single creature removal spell.

Good luck with your deck.

I would remove Firja, Judge of Valor since you don’t have any way of getting the cards placed in the graveyard back out. I also removed Starnheim Unleashed from my deck because it’s pretty expensive if you use the fortell part.

I made a deck with Firja, Judge of Valor as my general but took a different take on it, self milling myself with cheap spells and ramping her out as early as turn 2 in order to reanimate stuff and combo off. I love angels and their tribal and I give an upvote. My deck's name is I uhhh... YEAH

I would also recommend Memnite along with Ornithopter if you play Firja, Judge of Valor. I built an EDH deck from her, its name is I uhhh... YEAH
