Approach of the Second Sun is another good alternate win-con in mono white if you want more of those.

Xenopigeon, thanks for the support. I did actually notice the price increased by about 200$ or so within the last year, so I highly recommend proxying it.
As for lifegain, it's okay, but it definitely plays pretty greedily when it comes to the lifegain package (there isn't really one). When Bolas's Citadel comes out, it can really hurt sometimes so add some lifegian for sure if you feel it needs it. I'd personally run Windborn Muse over Archangel of Tithes because a lot of our creatures have flying and combat damage to face isn't one of the main concerns.
As for Valkyrie Harbinger , to me it looks like a double costed Resplendent Angel . Yeah it can trigger itself, but remember that Liesa should be in play pretty much always thanks to its tax cheat, and she has 5 power for Resplendent. I'd say it's an okay budget alternative, a bit expensive though.

I love how no card goes to waste in this deck with exiling out your revealed cards for further value. Incredible build. I've run into Speaker a ton more while I've dipped my toes into Arena, and it's nasty with Resplendent Angel and Bishop of Wings .

I really like this theme, I have a similar one called Angel cleric lifegain from which I’m drawing suggestions.
The way I see it your win-condition is “gain lots of life and then attack with Angel of Destiny ”. So you need to gain lots of life.
I would go 4-of Righteous Valkyrie and Speaker of the Heavens , and add 4-of Bishop of Wings as another method to gain life when angels enter the battlefield. Then, I’d consider some cards for gaining life. Revitalize and Renewed Faith are both good, but I really love Rest for the Weary because you can easily turn on your Speaker on turn 2 and then start pumping out angels.
Other cards to consider include Resplendent Angel to add another angel each turn, Boon Reflection or Rhox Faithmender to double lifegain, or perhaps even Entreat the Angels as an alternative win-con that will also net you life if you have one of the many “gain life with angels” out on the battlefield.

trocroi Revitalize was my first choice but I settled for a non-instant speed option that’s why I picked Scroll of Avacyn because 5 health while having Resplendent Angel on the board and activating the artifact before my opponent’s turn ends immediately gives me an Angel. 80% of the time I have all the lands I need to activate it’s ability that’s why I picked the scroll over anything else. I’m definitely NOT adding the land, maybe Rest for the Weary but I need to figure out what to take out.

Hm it doesnt seem to have a consistent plan nor a legit format. I would suggest to go for modern since it has a lot of cards in its pool and is the most common 60 cards format besides standard. I am an Angels Deck builder since 6 years, so i have a couple of suggestions. Of course that doesnt mean that you have to change something, i mean it is just a suggestion and all the mentioned cards wont fit anyway in a 60 cards deck. Try to make it more consistent if needed by playing 4-of or tutor effects.
Since you mentioned your friend plays burn, i will give you some cards that will make your winrate nearly 100% against burn. Burn has barely no chance against lifegain decks. Angels can be build in a lifegain way, which i am personally no fan of but many are, so here we go.
If you want to check out a non lifegain modern Angel deck, you can check out Devotion to White Angels.

Just kept a list of some good cards while looking at mtg stuff.
Keeper of the Accord for catch-up scenarios
Mangara, the Diplomat for some card draw
Good One-sided board wipe

I understand your point but it is unfortunately not valid for this deck. Shapeshifters and creature types have a strong appearance in Kaldheim but i would not call it an Angels Deck anymore if you just fill it up with 20 different creature types and putting a playset of Maskwood Nexus in it and call it a day (Technically the truth, but it misses the flavour of an Angels deck).
The whole point of "Devotion to white Angels" is to be a mono white devotion deck that features only one creature type if possible (modern contains too few angels for that, so humans as a subtheme do the rest of the job). I still miss an Angels that is Skyclave Apparition and an Angel that is Gadwick, the Wizened in mono white
Sephara, Sky's Blade is an Angel only suitable for a flyers/token-deck that can spam creatures. Lingering Souls , Spectral Procession , Midnight Haunting etc. This deck simply has no possibility to cast it for
Flickering effects need a lot of ETB creatures to work with. Except 4x Wall of Omens and 2x Thalia's Lancers there is none. If you really need the protection, i don't think there is any other viable option at the moment than Giver of Runes
Ranger of Eos is no option because it's only 1 devotion to white. Ranger-Captain of Eos would be the better fit but i still would need a third 1 drop option besides Weathered Wayfarer , Giver of Runes
Bishop of Wings belongs to a lifegain Angels deck that features a complete different set of Angels like Angel of Vitality , Resplendent Angel , Archangel of Thune , Lyra Dawnbringer . This is a non lifegain version. To be honest, i'm no fan of lifegain or tokens strategies in white. White can be so much more than that
