First of all, in a 63 card deck, I would take out Guardian, and since you don't seem to have much site access, I would replace that with Priestly Crown, especially with Lampstand and another access artifact in there.
And am I missing something with Joiada? The only thing he can recur is Scapegoat, which removes itself when used anyway. I would replace him with Priests of Christ, to give access to the NT LS.
Holy Unto the Lord is a card that I would definitely not put in such a defense-heavy deck, especially with absolutely no protection. However, your offense seems to lack initiative, so I would replace it with Jordan Interrupted.
And although I know there is no such thing as too big a defense, if there were, you would be very close to that line. If you wanted, you could pretty easily make it 8/8 instead of 11/11 and bring the deck down to 56.

I'm wary of taking out Guardian, simply because my offense is not terribly fast. Pretty much the only quick rescues I get are when they don't have defense early, and I get a free LS. Also, Guardian prevents Falling Away and 2-Liner from making me make 7-8 rescues.

If you wanted, you could pretty easily make it 8/8 instead of 11/11 and bring the deck down to 56.The biggest problem in my first game was my inability to draw defenders, as ridiculous as that sounds. In the 6 or 7 turns the game lasted, I drew 2 out of 11, and one of them was Seven Sons of Sceva. I suppose I could take out maybe two of each, but I think 8 blockers is too few for my playing style.
I think Unholy Writ and Burial Shroud both need to go in there... you can take out Urim and Thummim... seeing a hand is nice but so is stopping rescues.
With so many artifacts, put in Uzzah. He'll almost always buy you time to draw more defense.
bring it down to 56. 63 favors heavy defense or super-turtles. chariots is unnecessary, you wont be losing heroes alot with ztemple/cov w phin, and chariots is pretty much only useful to decks that have a specific hero/s that is absolutely detrimental towards the deck. add writ. add amariah, he belongs in any mono-teal deck. add at the very least pentecost, recurrable via joiada.
I agree with Soulseeker and BB. I would trim the defense a bit and/or add a few drawing feasts.Also, you need some sort of female or NT access. I Am Salvation, PoC, Zacharias. Take out Joiakim or Eliashib for PoC, maybe.Burial?
I find Burial to be less and less useful. With everyone (including myself) seeming to use Lampstand these days, it just wastes space most of the time.
Then the 2-liner seems just as less and less useful. I'm not arguing putting burial in but maybe consider taking the 2-liner out.
