Avacyn out of the Helavault, backed by other angels and with a plan to destroy the world? Sounds like a fun deck! :D you've asked to keep it budget, so most of the suggestions below should cost <$1 each. I've split my advice into sections, hopefully that'll help break it down into more bite-size chunks.
CHOOSE YOUR BATTLEFIELD
It felt like you had lots of fun cards in the deck, but it's not entirely clear how all of them fit in - at the moment it feels like you're trying to do a bit of everything. It might be worth (A) choosing what direction you want to take the deck (e.g. lifegain / big angels / destroy the world), (B) what your win-con and win-con cards are going to be for A, and (C) what cards would feel awesome to draw when you're winning / terrible to draw on an empty board. Hopefully those three questions will help shape what cards you choose to add and remove :) I decided to go human-angel tribal for one of my first decks that I built (Brisela, the confused angel), and whilst it wasn't my best deck (and is definitely in need of an update), you'll notice that there aren't (m)any creatures that aren't humans or angels. (I've also build a 'destroy the world'-style Oathbreaker deck, which does funky things with boardwipes, Dingus Staff/Dingus Egg and Second Sunrise!)
Well, with a slight plan of where you want the deck to go, let's think about some things you might want to consider. I've tried to keep the advice below quite general - if you're struggling to know what to remove, then do let me know and I'm happy to offer specific suggestions.
PROTECT THE GENERAL!
I really like how you've got 'fair' "destroy all" board wipes in there, which become one-sided when Avaycn is around. However, do be careful if someone exiles Avacyn in response to your Armageddon (or similar) - you really don't want to be on the receiving end of your own wipe! Avacyn is great, but she is vulnerable to pesky cards like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile that keep appearing in EDH. You might want to add some cards that give Avacyn hexproof or protection - I like the Mirror Shield and Flicker of Fate in the deck, but that's very little Avacyn 'protection' for 99 cards. Some suggestions here are artifacts like Whispersilk Cloak and Swiftfoot Boots. (Lightning Greaves is the best of these, but is a little more expensive - definitely a commander staple, so do pick one up at some point!). Creatures that give protection are also great, and those have the added bonus of providing you some early-game safety, especially those with repeatable protection. I'd suggest adding Devoted Caretaker to the deck, and either Benevolent Bodyguard or Alseid of Life's Bounty (with plans to upgrade to everyone's favourite Mother of Runes - another commander staple! - and Giver of Runes if you're happy to spend a little more).
Now that Avacyn's bodyguards are sorted, let's have a think of how we can get her out as fast as (reasonably) possible.
RISE AND SHINE, ANGELS
Since you have got a lot of high CMC creatures, I'd be tempted to chuck some more mana rocks in there - Worn Powerstone and Hedron Archive are good places to start - as well as card that reduce the cost of your high-end cards - Oketra's Monument is especially great here since it also gives you extra creatures to block with, Pearl Medallion is also good if you can stretch the budget. (I'd personally definitely remove Lotus Petal - it doesn't do a huge amount for you, and it takes up a slot that could be used by a repeatable mana rock.) Rocks/reducers will allow you to get more angels out quicker, meaning that you're more likely to have a board presence in the midgame - and rescue Avacyn from the Helavault as early as possible!
The creatures you have could do with some tweaking - I think it might be worth trimming your choices, but how you want to do that will depend on what 'theme' you want to have.
MAYDAY MAYDAY, WE'RE OUT OF AMMO!
The most important resource in MtG are cards. You use cards to get mana and play creatures that ultimately win you the game - if you don't have any cards then it's very hard to win games. I don't currently see much in the way of card draw in your deck, so I imagine you'd be top-decking quite often with this, hoping to get the card you really need from the top. (There are also a couple more lands than usual - standard EDH decks run 40 lands - meaning that you're a little more likely to have a 'dead draw' than you would otherwise be.)
Unfortunately we're in white so what we have is card advantage instead of card draw, but do have a think about what cards you could add that might help - Mentor of the Meek is a favourite of mine, but you need to have enough low-power creatures to make it work (or cards that create small tokens - like Oketra's Monument!). If you have a bit of budget then an Endless Atlas is a safe staple for EDH mono-colour decks, and Well of Lost Dreams is really nifty in a lifegain deck :) also, cards that fetch to the battlefield effectively count as card draw, so I'll also allow cards like Myriad Landscape, Reya Dawnbringer, and Brought Back (which can even function as a ramp card if you manage to use it on lands like Myriad Landscape).
WATCH THE WORLD BURN
I heard you like board wipes? End Hostilities is cheap, but if you want to go OG then the purest wipe is Wrath of God, though it's younger brother Day of Judgment) is a lot cheaper. Fumigate, Rout, Martial Coup, Phyrexian Rebirth and Nevinyrral's Disk also fit in that slot. Finally, if you can make it fit then I'd perhaps look at adding Worldslayer. It's a lot of mana to equip, but once it's on Avacyn there's no way anyone else is coming back from that!
Do remember that all of the above are just suggestions, let me know if you have any questions, good luck, and remember - once all the dust settles and the other players die, "Only one may stand!"

Hey, your deck doesn't show an official Commander because you didn't add the CMDR tag after the Aureila text in the deck editor.
Aurelia, the Warleader *CMDR*
There's 2x Path to Exile here ;) Command Tower and Battlefield Forge are good Boros lands. Ancient Tomb is helpful when playing high CMC Angels. Ancient Den and Great Furnace are worth adding to help metalcraft of Puresteel. Mistveil Plains and Tithe have great interaction with Sunforger. Mistveil can put the instant you cast with Sunforger back into your library to cast it again and Tithe can be cast by Sunforger to tutor for Mistveil.
Consider expanding on control with more pillowfort, Blind Obedience, Ghostly Prison, Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric? More pillowfort is good with Luminarch Ascension which is one of the best Angel cards, a repeatable source of instant creatures for control. Law/Rhetoric can help slow the game down which is helpful with control and to buy time to cast Angels. Law/Rhetoric is very good with Ascension.
Arcane Signet and Talisman of Conviction are Boros mana rocks. Pearl Medallion can do a lot since the majority of cards and Angels are white. Knight of the White Orchid is nice ramp for Boros and it can search for Mistveil or Foundry.
Emeria Angel doesn't create Angels, but she does create fliers and that's good with control. Getting repeatable value without paying mana is helpful with control. Resplendent Angel, three drop Angel who's very good with Lyra Dawnbringer and another potential repeatable source of Angels that doesn't cost mana.
Good luck with your deck.

3 cards that are absolutely essential to any Feather deck in my opinion are:
- Aria of Flame: this card is sick in Feather
- Pearl Medallion and
- Ruby Medallion turn all your 2 drops into 1 drops which is huge.
One question I have for you is could you show me how you do the pics in your accordion boxes and the way the big wording is done in them. I’ve done a lot of work modding my Feather deck page but this is one thing I haven’t learned yet. Would be immensely appreciated.

Not sure what your budget is for the deck but I'll list some suggestions that aren't soul-crushingly expensive.
Griffin Canyon Could be hard to find unless you order online but seems like no griffin deck should be without one.
Cathars' Crusade super anthem
Mirror Entity Griffins have low base power/toughness and this would still get the tribal bonuses.
Pearl Medallion For what they do, griffins are on the expensive side. Urza's Incubator is probably more than you want to spend on this tribe. Wow, has this one spiked in price since last I looked... sorry I even looked it up.
Unbreakable Formation Protect that flying horde and maybe buff them too if opponents tap out.
Sephara, Sky's Blade may not be a griffin but is budget protection for your tribe.

This deck is awesome!! My suggestion would be to add in Archetype of Aggression. I personally don't like the signets because you're basically paying for one extra mana, so I'd replace that with Pearl Medallion since your deck is primarily white mana. I also prefer God-Eternal Oketra's ability over Oketra the True because it gives you stronger warriors and you don't have to pay mana for them.
Just my personal suggestions, but like I said, I think this deck is awesome!! I also think it's funny that you're using Hanweir Battlements without Hanweir Garrison because I'm currently doing the opposite in my Najeela deck lol.
