It may be good. But not because it’s an angel. An angel shouldn’t be interchangeable with other creature types.
I think you might be putting angels on too high a pedastal. What's the minimum you need from an angel card in order to fulfill your need? Most people think Serra Angel when they think MTG Angel; it's a pretty boring card. Serra Sphinx proves that it can be swapped out for different creature types with no problem. Malach of the Dawn proves that angels are secretly ghost boats. If they printed Goblin King for this set and replaced the word Goblin with Dwarf on it a few times, it'd be a perfectly fine flavor card, I think. I have a hard time thinking of a card design that couldn't have creature types swapped out and still work.
This angel inspires an army of dudes with an impromptu funeral. I think that's okay angel flavor.
