Destroy target artifact or enchantment. You gain 4 life.

Hey, great job on building your first deck! You seem to have the principles of deck building down and it looks pretty powerful, so I'll just offer some simple card substitutions and why.
Instead of Solemn Offering I would use Crush Contraband because it is instant speed, often hits two targets, and can remove indestructible things. (Though no life gain, which I think is part of your theme.) It is more versatile more often.
Instead of Font of Agonies I would use Dawn of Hope because this card only triggers from four other cards in your deck besides the commander: Erebos, God of the Dead, Hatred, Trading Post, and Final Payment (losing life doesn't equal spending life) I think more utility and draw options are better since you already have a lot of good removal already.
Instead of Tribute to Hunger use Blood Artist because you have so much removal already, and this card doesn't let you target anything. Blood Artist does everything this deck wants to do already and it triggers from any creature's death not just your own.
Throw in a Bojuka Bog and I think you're golden.
Good luck! I hope this was helpful to you.

nice list man, I would recommend Invoke the Divine rather than Solemn Offering only because divine is an instant. if you dont care about the life gain, you could go the classic Disenchant since its a mana less but without the life gain. I would also recommend Flagstones of Trokair and Field of Ruin for some of the lands because some of our worst matchups (like tron) use lands to their advantage so some land destruction would work, they also give you deck thinning and lets you fetch the mistveil plain, and with the amount of 1 mana creatures, I would run a full set of Ranger-Captain of Eos and cut 2 Kami of False Hope. The Squadron Hawk is really good, if you have stuff to buff them up, you could cut a board wipe or two for something liek Honor of the Pure, so that the hawks start smacking harder
Other than that its a really nice deck. If you dont mind, could you check out my deck please? let me know what you think! Martyr of the StoneBlade

Wow thanks for the input, Yeah I didnt even notice Solemn Offering was sorcery
I changed some cards but was wondering what other cards are there like Arcane Encyclopedia? I cant seem to find many, and I wanted Boros Locket and Commander's Sphere for card draw and mana flexibility

In commander, having cheap and instant speed interaction is preferable to slower spells with more value. As such use something like Disenchant and Swords to Plowshares over Solemn Offering. Especially if you add something like Sunforger to the equation. When you run few interaction spells and little card draw, a good rule of thumb is to play cards that answer a wide variety of spells rather than specific ones. So play cards like Chaos Warp or Generous Gift (removes anything from the board, even lands!) over cards like Lightning Helix (only hits creatures and is limited to small ones).
Boros isn't exactly known for their awesome card draw. Wheel of Fortune is not worth the pricetag in this deck, unless you already just have a spare copy, I would not include it. It most likely helps an opponent more than you, and it actually leads to a lot of unfun games if played early, since one or two players might just get completely manascrewed. It is good in Storm, but this is not Storm ;) Try to leverage your commander instead. There are a ton of Arcane Encyclopedia-esque cards. My personal favorite is Phyrexian Portal, a great political card.
Consider whether you want Basalt Monolith in your deck. It is far and away the best card in your deck as it allows you to immediately go infinite. But is this the gameplay you are seeking? If you want this you can jam in Gamble, Enlightened Tutor, Planar Bridge, Hoarding Dragon etc. Also Grim Monolith is a second Basalt Monolith but better. Avoid cards that only function as infinite mana outlets like Energy Bolt, try to find cards like Walking Ballista.
There are generally better mana rocks out there than the ones you are playing. I don't like to have my mana rocks take up the same turn as my commander, so maybe replace Boros Locket and Commander's Sphere with Talisman of Conviction, Boros Signet and Mind Stone.

Invoke the Divine & Solemn Offering are two cards I'd not run in any other deck, but in Licia I think they have merit in removal slots. Both will trigger your Angelic Accord, and you net in price reduction for your commander. But it is a matter of trading overall better cards for one that fit the decks themes and wants.

Thanks for the compliment! I'm glad you like the deck. Here's what I'm thinking though:
I used to run, Alhammarret's Archive but eventually I cut it because I found I wasn't drawing enough cards to justify paying one more mana.
Thief of Blood is also a good suggestion! Thank you. I may play test with it.
Solemn Offering , as you said, is a little slow. The gour life is tempting, but I've found this deck doesn't have to big of a problem removing enchantments.
Thank you for checking out the deck!
