Basiane, Underworld Judge Legendary Enchantment Creature- Zombie Constellation— Whenever ~ or another enchantment enters the battlefield under your control, you may put target enchantment card in your graveyard on top of your library.

So Angels are a pretty great example of a long-running race that still has room to innovate - despite existing since the start of Magic, we have 158 printed ones, less than a mere 1% of the card pool. Among those 158, only 31 are Legendaries, and only 2 actually care about other Angels!
Your challenge is to design an Angel Commander that brings something new to the table. Whether this means something "A Angel that isn't about the combat step", "An Angel tribal commander that isn't monoW", "A color combination/type combination that hasn't been seen on a legendary angel like mono, Esper (), Angel Druid, Angel Wurm, etc...", or something else entirely, that's up to you! Those prompts are just something to help you get started.

Erziel, Scribe of Life and Death ::4::::g::::g::::b::::b:: Legendary Creature - Angel ::mythic:: Flying, Vigilance Whenever another non-token creature you don't control dies, you and that creature's controller may put a creature card from their hand onto the battlefield. 4/4
I plan on making some sort of mock up when I get home. Idea is based off of the angel Azrael.
Cestra, Divine Blessing Legendary Creature - Angel Flying, banding, flanking When Cestra, Divine Blessing enters the battlefield, choose a person outside the game. That person may put up to X enchantments with different names he or she owns from outside the game on the battlefield, where X is the number of players. Each enchantment enters the battlefield under a different player’s control chosen at random. 4/4
I guess that brings a few new enchantments to the table, right?
The Eighth Seraph, Valor Legendary Creature- Angel Flying, vigilance Other creatures can’t block unless their controller pays for each of those creatures. Whenever a creature deals combat damage to a player, that creature’s controller may scry 1. 4/4
Grizelda, Fallen of the Host Legendary Creature - Angel Flying, deathtouch At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice another creature. If you do, each opponent loses life equal to that creature's power. "If we make the demons our allies, those we protect will have nothing to fear." 4/4
She's the fourth sister of the Powerpuff Girl angels, the one Avacyn killed for consorting with demons.
So I too was looking at the fourth unknown angel from the Innistrad plane, but after seeing several others take a shot at that idea (they look cool by the way), decided to go a different direction. I ended up making another one of the Asuras from Bant (they're the highest ranking angels).
Rana, Asura of Peace Legendary Creature - Angel
Whenever an opponent’s spell targets you or a creature you control, put a 3/3 white and blue angel creature token with flying and hexproof into play after that spell resolves.
, sacrifice an angel: Counter target spell or activated ability that targets you or a creature you control.
Arisa, Angel of Tyranny Legendary Scheme Creature - Angel (When you set a scheme creature in motion, cast it without paying its mana cost.) Flying Whenever one or more creatures attack you, those creature's controllers lose X life and you gain X life, where X is the number of Angels you control. The meek shall not lament. 3/4
Something scaling with Angels you control was I felt a good way to make a scheme creature that's not too backbreaking early. I imagine this would be in a world ruled by a tyrannical field of angels (basically, Serra's Realm gone wildly wrong). While this is designed for archenemy, it could definitely be interesting as a prison/control commander.
