War Priest of Thune
Creature — Human Cleric
When War Priest of Thune enters the battlefield, you may destroy target enchantment.

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.
Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.
Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.
Banisher Priest is good.
Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.
Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.
Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.
Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.
Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.
Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.
From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.
Welcoming Vampire is good too.
Feat of Resistance is nice.
Gods Willing is good.
Aligned Hedron Network is good.
Font of Vigor - see previous comment
Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned
Also consider Sphere of Safety.
I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

ichibancho: Tough question to answer, as the impact of any one card is really dependent on what you're playing against. Suture Priest & War Priest of Thune are both pretty good options from my decklist. A few other options for consideration: Cabal Archon , Disciple of Griselbrand , Leonin Arbiter or Nullpriest of Oblivion . Depends if you want to go the more Staxy route or for more inherent synergies.
I'm sure Geralf's Messenger + Luminous Broodmoth is a pretty fun and convincing way to win a game, but unless you're going to a new tournament with new players every week that shit's gonna get shut down by your playgroup really fast. The same reason I ended up cutting Liliana's Contract + Mirror Entity from this deck. Having Broodmoth out every game would be super! However to build the whole deck with that idea in mind would be foolish. Maybe that's just my own ideology about the game, but I really believe that powerful effects and cards should be nice bonuses when you draw them, not cornerstones to build a deck around. Especially when only one such card (Broodmoth) performs its function, what do you do when it's exiled?
Tutors can mediate a bit of that, but you're playing a Commander that thrives on combining with other 'likeminded' cards. You don't need it to be a Cleric deck to win with Geralf's Messenger and could probably run a different General altogether that would better support your win condition (e.g. Teysa Karlov ).
And you're welcome! Always happy to provide feedback and have a broader discussion! =)

OmletMojo12 I have some nefarious plans on getting more creatures with return target creature(s) to owners' hands. I went to an edh Facebook page for ways to abuse god-eternal oketra, and they have me several ways. Standard way is to bring in weenies. I'm not a fan of weenies. I will have to rethink for the etb and tokens.
My goal is to get the cost low enough to repeat casting multiple times a turn. I might need a Vedalken Orrery for the flash aspect.
So, here are the planned maybe boards - since I'm going to ETB / casting creature triggers: Ancestral Statue - can actually become free to cast, since it's colorless, return target creature I control to my hand. Emancipation Angel - same as above, except Ivory Giant - taps all non-white creatures. Kor Skyfisher - return target creature I control . Panharmonicon - doubles etb triggers for my creatures - I don't really have artifact ETBs unless they're creatures. Reveillark - graveyard recursion for my weenies - ok. Stormfront Riders - return two creatures, whenever it or another creature is returned to my hand from play, adds at least two tokens into play when it enters the battlefield. Subjugator Angel - tap all creatures my opponents control Sunblast Angel - destroy all tapped creatures. Dust Elemental - flash, return three creatures I control to my hand. Eiganjo Free-Riders - return target creature I control at upkeep Enlightened Ascetic - destroy target enchantment or artifact War Priest of Thune - same as ascetic Thalia's Lancers - legendary creature tutor on a stick Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - mono-color ramp Possessed Portal - sacrifice a creature? okay. I have lots of tokens. Regal Caracal - more tokens on etb.
Now I need ideas on what to exchange for the above. First thoughts are the two odrics - they're combat focused, not etb or casting focused.

Token Generation to Get ETB Triggers

Darth_Savage I think game one I'm just dead to Blood Moon or the ETB suppressors but game 2 I have some answers with Natural State and Path to Exile. I didnt go with Meddling Mage for some additional aggro with Hanweir Garrison with the hope that I can kill faster than my OP can cast. I've thought about main decking a couple copies of War Priest of Thune but I think the best option is still sideboarding and trying to take games 2/3
Thank you for the feedback though...I love these conversations and tweaking the deck!!!

Here are some easy swaps when you have the chance.
Why Homarid Explorer? Seems like an odd choice. Again, infinite blinks will win with literally anything so why not play card that synergies with your deck more? How about Deadeye Navigator which is a stupid card and a back up brago? Or Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce all the lands.
That's the biggest piece of advice I'd give you. You have a lot fo random mill that doesn't synergies with your commander like Psychic Corrosion. I'd see about removing that.
Finally 33 lands is kinda low. I aim for at least 36, maybe even 38
