Remove options: - Twilight Drover (slow) - Treasury Thrull - Tithe Drinker - Thrull parasite - Marauding Blight-Priest (maybe) - Archon of Redemption (too expensive, we need the effect early) - Engineered Plague (too situational) - Glorious Anthem (maybe) - Ethereal Absolution (maybe) - Pillar of the Sleepless (rather weak) - Prison Term (maybe) Replace with stronger removals/definitive exile/instant speed - Primeval's Glorious Rebirth (how often will we benefit?) - Breath of Life (replace with faster/stronger recursion)
Adds: - Any lifegain on creature ETB effect Ajani's Welcome style, or Blood Artist style (has variations) - Vizkopa Guildmage - Sun Titan or a Bishop of Rebirth or Reveillark for recursion? - Faith's Reward or Brought Back are ways to respond to wipe - Tutors for, perhaps, Ayli and Vito. Thalia's Lancers ?

Haha you are a tough one. Bishop of Wings is indeed probably best in slot for an Angels deck. But in this case here i have simply not enough Angels that would justify playing it. If there is a 3 drop Angel with ETB removal, i will definitely consider it.
Divine Visitation is indeed an Angel wincon but it is not the idea i was going for. So the base idea is to play big legendary Angels like Akroma, Angel of Wrath , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Iona, Shield of Emeria , Brisela, Voice of Nightmares (These are the devotion payoffs. You can add 1x Entreat the Angels if you feel like it). There is a tutor in place Thalia's Lancers to fetch the situational needed wincons. It is a lot more fun to play with different wincons and tutor effects during game than just token spam and pray.

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

BW keyword soup tribal? BW keyword soup tribal! May I introduce you to keyword soup all-stars Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , and Indulging Patrician ? Also, another pet card of mine, Oketra's Monument which gives you tokens with vigilance and reduces the cost of your commanders! I'd say cut the aristocrat cards seeing how you minimal sac outlets. Also, if your goal is to just overwhelm people with keywords, Thalia's Lancers is a great choice because you can tutor out Odric to finish the game.

I think this deck has few big problems beyond needing a win condition.
First, your deck has 18 creatures + your commander. This might work in a control deck, you seem to want to play angel tribal, so this is a really low creature count.
Second, your land count is a little low. In the playtester it seemed to work out ok a decent amount of the time, but only with the red loot spells. Some are even cycling lands, which kind of makes things worse. Personally, I like 34-37 depending on various factors.
Your gameplan leans heavily towards having creatures to protect, but a majority of them cost 5 or more, so you lack early game presence. You also can't really rely on you commander flashing in if you need to play to have any blockers...
Anyways, I'm coming up blank on a good wincon. Maybe Warstorm Surge and similar effects?

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!
