Not sure about that. Spirits has Path. Vs Humans it's only a temporary solution as eventually they'll just grow their creatures bigger than the Angel. Also, Reflector Mage. The Angels also don't work well with mass removals.
Those factors haven't changed though, spirits and humans already played the cards that kill angels when the angels became popular and they still do; you can only argue that the "gotcha" factor has diminished a bit. The angels have always been a gambit of demanding an answer when you play them
