You have hexproof. (You can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)
When Metropolis Reformer is dealt damage, you gain that much life.

Beebles Thank you for the reply! I can tell you played this deck a lot. I appreciate the thoughtful advice.
I think the addition of damage based board wipes is awesome. I find myself having a redirect boy on the battlefield with indestructible but missing either lifelink or Sunsteel. So having a big amount of damage to get some value out of my board state is important.
Ahh yeah with Metropolis Reformer I was thinking it was the same function in the combo as Lifelink. But Reformer and a Pariah effect is a dope pillow fort type lock.
Now time to start breaking the deck down again!

In terms of your maybeboard Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a worse version of Sigarda, Font of Blessings at this point so I wouldn't bother with it. Surge of Salvation is cool but it would be a mostly dead draw if you already have Sigarda and you're probably going to be sidedecking Shapers' Sanctuary anyway as an Angels deck.
Metropolis Reformer is cool but it doesn't do enough for you compared to putting in Skyclave Apparition. Personally, I would swap alll copies of Metropolis Angel for copies of Skyclave Apparition. That way you get a more broadly targeting removal than Fateful Absence while putting another creature on the board to make the most of Righteous Valkyrie.
Errant and Giada doesn't do anything for you that Sigarda isn't already doing and you can get away with adding at least one more copy of Sigarda since it's such a high priority removal target for your opponenent that getting two in one game is okay in most match-ups. Also it let's you play Bishop of Wings from the top of your deck which Errant and Giada doesn't.
Aside from that I would say that putting in a fourth copy of of Kayla's Reconstruction and another copy of Nykthos definitely needs to be done. Additionally, if you're taking my advice and getting rid of Errant and Giada then you no longer need the blue mana and so you should really play some combination of fast/pain lands along with at least one copy of Mutavault to help kill your opponent. Emeria's Call Flip is another possibility mana wise as it has good late-game utility while expanding your land base a little.
I feel I may be a bit harsh but that would be my advice for improving this deck.
