Hi. I'm not using the talismans but the signets instead as I have lots of those but very few talismans. As is, I'm running 6 mana rocks paired with the 37 lands. I don't really think I'll need the extra rocks although I haven't tested the deck yet and, as such, might be proven wrong. Yet again, better than adding the talismans, I might prefer adding 3-cmc rocks as those tend to synergize with the commander, being played for free.

Some of the options you suggested are already in the deck, such as Index and Dream Cache. I'm also running Brainstorm and Dimir Charm, plus Halimar Depths, Moonring Island, Crystal Ball and Soothaying, which will help me with the srying part at a low cost. At this point I'm considering adding 1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor and 1 Sensei's Divining Top if I do confirm that I have extra copies not being used. Not so budgety, and will only add them if I have free copies. :)

Sensei's Divining Top is showing up as "legal" in Legacy and it shouldn't be.

A few topdeck shenanigans recommendations, to make the most of your manifest sources.

First, we give Sensei's Divining Top an honorable mention. It's just great.

Augur of Autumn lets you expand your hand by giving you access to lands and creatures on your topdeck, though it might be a bit of a struggle for you to activate Coven since most of your creatures are Power 2 and 3.

Cream of the Crop is just fantastic, and works great with all your 2 Power Morphs.

Then there's good ol' Scroll Rack; an OG whose usefulness is hard to overstate in a freecasting/topdeck build like this.

You could also take a look at Wickerwing Effigy. Could be very interesting in a Kadena deck...

zapyourtumor Thanks for the upvote and for the helpful advice! I love outside input! My tabletop play group is pretty limited these daze! I don't get out for competitive modern events much anymore, but I still like to be competitive! I mostly play on arena, but Historic just isn't quite the same as Modern. I play Coco Angels on Arena, and I fully agree that the Youthful Valkyrie is a total star, but this is my live Deck and I do not yet own physical copies. The Serra Avenger was a cheaper/more readily available option at the time, all That being said, Aside from My EDH Kaalia and Sigarda decks, this is my baby! So maybe it's time to order some! I didn't realize that Sensei's Divining Top was banned in modern. This site usually flags illegal cards. My bad! I had three copies of Aether Vial in the deck at first along with the Serra Avengers, but I always feel like I want to draw more cards, which is something not many white decks do, aside from bogle/enchantress. Aether Vial is great when you have cards to put into to play with it! I have a playset of Esper Sentinel, and while I like it, and it's a pretty good card, it's even better when you can make it bigger, which is something this deck doesn't really do. Still, I feel like the sentinel or Speaker of the Heavens is the better play? or the Giver of Runes?

Path to Exile is a great card, and so is Fatal Push no question there. In my play group I happen to run into Stormbreath Dragon a lot, and that is the reason I am running cards like Doomblade or Go for the Throat, I've also been playing around with Lay Down Arms a bit and Soul Partition but yeah, not good against Stormbreath Dragon, lol.

Anywho! Thanks again for the comments and suggestions! Much appreciated

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth = Infinite mana + Sensei's Divining Top = Draw your whole deck

Basalt + Forsaken Monument = Infinite mana

Everflowing Chalice + Voltaic Key + rings = Infinite mana

Metalworker + Staff of Domination = Infinite mana

Mystic Forge + Sensei's divining top + cloud key/artifact cost reducer/Semblance Anvil/Ugin, the Ineffable = Draw your whole deck

Scorched Ruins + Rings + Deserted Temple = Infinite mana

I can recommend more but want to see how these work for you.

I'd lower the curve a bit if you want the deck to be more competitive. If you want to keep Brisela in for the fun that's obviously your choice, but the chances of you getting her on the battlefield are pretty slim.

I 100% think you should move the 4 Youthful Valkyries from the maybeboard to the mainboard.

Sensei's Divining Top is not legal in modern (or legacy for that matter).

I'd probably run more Path to Exile, or maybe a couple Fatal Push over some of the other more expensive removal spells you have.

Resplendent Marshal may be worth considering, since it buffs all your angels and also gives a ton of value even if it gets removed.

Segovian Angel is obviously nothing fancy, but you don't have many proactive turn 1 plays.

Serra Avenger could be funny if you go for 3-4 Aether Vial, else probably not worth including.

Not sure if Angelic Curator is worth it as a sideboard card against artifacts, but it is pretty funny. Heliod's Intervention or Kataki, War's Wage might just be more direct though.

Linvala is pretty garbage in the current meta but always a sideboard card to keep your eye on. Currently the only deck she's good against is Yawg.

I do not understand your recent update. Trading post is iffy, sure. But mystic forge? Your majority of your deck is artifact based. Perhaps I'm missing something?

Mystic forge + Sensei's Divining Top + cost reducer (Etherium Sculpter, Cloud Key/Semblance Anvil/Ugin, the Ineffable = Draw your whole deck. Each card is synergistic with the deck so it ensures no dead cards. Is top not considered due to you not wanting to spend $/budget? Even without top, forege is so powerful, can you elaborate why it was cut?

Instead of urzas command, why not add in another counterspell for interaction or draw to maintain gas (perhaps your commander is all the gas you need?).
