Gideon of the Trials is a very versatile card on its own but i had to swap it out because Runed Halo has no synergy with any planeswalkers. Runed Halo showed to be just too good to be swapped out. (It only struggles if you always play against new brew decks)
Skyclave Apparition is an option i'm testing at the moment (Works quite good). It would fit way better if it were an Angel or Human though (for Caverns and Deck flavor). You would have to swap out Wall of Omens for Charming Prince then for the additional interaction.
Linvala, Keeper of Silence I keep her in here because i have someone who plays Slivers in my playgroup with a value combo Dormant Sliver and later Necrotic Sliver. If she enters the battlefield, it's game. Lyra Dawnbringer is really nice but its ability need a lot of Angels on the battlefield. She works way better if the Angels are cheap, like 2 - 3 mana drops. I've not seen a non lifegain Angel that low except maybe Serra Avenger
Giver of Runes is insane and would be a great addition, because i cannot deal with Path to Exile myself. I tried it with Ranger-Captain of Eos a while ago but somehow the deck got slow i lost one match after the other. Not sure how i could include Giver of Runes at the moment. I have a Eight-and-a-Half-Tails Sideboard against control which you can fetch.
Emeria, Shattered Skyclave is a must include for this deck even if you cannot fetch it. Every white deck i own has it now. Ondu Skyruins is not really needed, i included it because i play a lot of multiplayer at the moment.
Secluded Steppe + Mistveil Plains gives Weathered Wayfarer the ability to tap and draw a card for 4 mana (Activating Mistveil Plains cost 1 mana. At least some card draw engine, you can try Arch of Orazca if you like it more. I like the land fetch ability more XD).
What i really need for this deck is 3 drop removal better than Oblivion Ring. Grasp of Fate is strictly better but not modern. Banisher Priest and Fiend Hunter die easily to removal. I hope some day a set will bring something printed on an Angel

Hi Drcfan! I have a few questions/remarks for you :)
- What happened to Gideon of the Trials? He has been tougher and tougher for me to play, the amount of threats being too high in aggro decks at the moment and him only being able to deal only with one per turn and coming at turn 3/4 (and being unprotected by Runed Halo).
- What's your opinion on Skyclave Apparition? Greater devotion than an Oblivion Ring, and they never get the card back, but on a creature which can be worse than an enchant.
- What's your opinion on Linvala over Lyra?
I also believe that you can't fetch Emeria's Call Flip or Ondu Inversion Flip with your Weathered Wayfarer after putting it back inside your deck via Mistveil Plains (or even before), as per the rules from Zendikar Rising, as the front face of these two double-faced cards aren't the land face:
Why you can't tutor Emeria's Call by searching for a land Show
"Most of the rules that govern how transforming double-faced cards apply to the new modal variety. While a modal double-faced card is in your hand, your graveyard, or exile, it has the characteristics of its front face only. So, if you're searching your library for a land card, you can't find a modal double-faced card whose front face isn't a land card. If an effect allows you to cast instant spells from your graveyard, you could cast Valakut Awakening, but you couldn't play Valakut Stoneforge."
But also for your interest:
From the "Zendikar Rising Release Notes" on Wizards' site, Septembre 10, 2020
"If an effect allows you to play a land or cast a spell from among a group of cards, you may play or cast a modal double-faced card with any face that fits the criteria of that effect. For example, if Sejiri Shelter / Sejiri Glacier is in your graveyard and an effect allows you to play lands from your graveyard, you could play Sejiri Glacier. That effect doesn't allow you to cast Sejiri Shelter."
- You could theoretically do a draw once per turn with Secluded Steppe and with your Wayfarer and Mistveil. It's less than Arch of Orazca (which you've told me in the past was too expensive to your taste, and too situational with the ascend mechanic), albeit colored mana and disruptable via destroying the Wayfarer. What do you think?
I love the Settle the Wreckage suggestion, have copied it in my deck! Works very well with the instant speed, with the lands fetched by the opponent and our Wayfarer, it keeps our board, and it exiles which prevents graveyard shenanigans. Only issue over a Wrath of God is having to target our opponent (and the lands given, indeed), but I prefer it this way.
Thank you for your time!

Just some suggestions ;)
Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit - makes smallest dude a little more swoll; additionally combo potential - put it in from your board
Anax, Hardened in the Forge - value town/sudo wrath/removal protection on a body
Archon of Emeria - rule of law on a flying body slaps in a fair aggro deck
Aven Mindcensor - F#$% their tutors and fetches
Ethersworn Canonist - artifact rule of law is still a rule of law and keeps things fair
Goblin Cratermaker - can take down a problem bear or a problem ugin
Magus of the Moon - might be out of budget but if you got one this card is very frustrating for most players
Phyrexian Revoker - needle with legs
Ranger-Captain of Eos - tiny dude tutor combined with a built in silence it earns its' price tag
Samurai of the Pale Curtain - 2 words. Fox Samurai.

Mother of Runes is good for some redundancy and can help protect against exile effects or push through damage. I've actually enjoyed Hushbringer - made this korvald player a bit salty. Karn, the Great Creator - can be a combo piece or help you get key artifacts out of exile. Serra Ascendant - helps with early game pressure. Lastly, Ranger-Captain of Eos is a little guy Tutor with built in silence :)

Grand Abolisher can help a lot against control decks and suits the devotion plan as well. If you face control often, you can also include other anti control cards. Fell free to experiment with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Favor of the Mighty, 4x Cavern of Souls, Giver of Runes, Greater Auramancy, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Pristine Angel, Voice of All, Pentarch Ward, Spectra Ward. Control has always the upper hand over you, this helps to bind their hands.
Luminous Broodmoth it's not an Angel and you control not enough non flyers that are worth to keep alive. You can run a creature only strategy. I suggest you look at death and taxes decks and draw inspiration from there.
Angels do not synergize with anything. You play Angels only because you like Angels not for competitive reasons. There is an option for a lifegain Angels deck (I'm working on it right now) but it uses very different kind of Angels Angel of Vitality, Resplendent Angel, Archangel of Thune, Lyra Dawnbringer and a lot of 1 life passive trigger cards.
If you add another color or colorless, you destroy the devotion plan. Therefore you need another strategy to get Angels out. See "Other strategies" in description

Things that synergize with white's effects like counters with Mindless Automaton, lifegain with Well of Lost Dreams, and tokens or small dudes with Skullclamp, that or Sword of Fire and Ice for equipment strategies, Smuggler's Copter and Bonders' Enclave for other strategies.
And in white, after looking it up for Omniscience_is_life, here is my new, semi-educated package:
Land Tax, Mangara, the Diplomat, Alms Collector, Weathered Wayfarer, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Sram, Senior Edificer, Stonehewer Giant, Dawn of Hope, Puresteel Paladin, Mentor of the Meek, Bygone Bishop, Luminarch Ascension, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Sun Titan, Sevinne's Reclamation, Ranger of Eos, and Castle Ardenvale
Not to mention tutors being Weathered Wayfarer/Ranger of Eos being tutors, alongside Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Recruiter of the Guard, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Academy Rector, Arena Rector, Call the Gatewatch, Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Heliod's Pilgrim, Quest for the Holy Relic, Three Dreams, Boonweaver Giant, Auratouched Mage, Djeru, With Eyes Open, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Thalia's Lancers, Totem-Guide Hartebeest, Relic Seeker, Priest of the Wakening Sun, Forerunner of the Legion, Ignite the Beacon, Plea for Guidance, Kithkin Harbinger, etc.
Oh, and there is more, just look!

Have you considered cheaper payoff cards like Speaker of the Heavens over Bloodthirsty Aerialist? Maybe Ranger of Eos or Ranger-Captain of Eos to tutor some of your many 1-cmc creatures. Also I would think going into BW would be for more controlly cards, since im not sure how good Banehound, Blood Scrivener and Bloodthirsty Aerialist are. If you want extra removal, you can add Fatal Push. For extra tokens besides Spectral Procession, theres Lingering Souls. And for more hand control you could add Tidehollow Sculler instead of Thoughtseizes (since you can curve out a turn 1 SS and a turn 2 sculler)

Daveslab2022, very nice. I do have concerns about removing the playset of Ranger-Captain of Eos from this deck, especially in a control and burn heavy meta. My primary concern is with consistency, being a Death's Shadow deck means being able to reliability play him every game. Resolving Ranger-Captain means I am even less reliant on simple luck or statistical probability. I know four spells with double white Mana isn't the ideal situation in a aggro deck, but this guy is just a fantastic early and late game card; so much so that I consider it a staple.
