MTG: Pure Angel Deck (Legacy Format)

I have been a huge fan of Magic The Gathering for a very long time and I've been collecting Angel creature cards. I collect them but couldn't seem to build a deck with my collection since they were so hard to cast an I didn't want to mix them with other creature types. Until this year when Avacyn Restored was released and I was able to put them together.
Below would be my build for an Angel Deck, It's not that strong for Type 1 but atleast I've got my collection put together in one mean deck.

Deck analisys:
The mana curve hurts with all the heavy casting cost of the angels included in this deck. The converted mana cost average of this deck is currently at 3.8 and is composed of 30% White cards, 9% Blue and 61% Colorless.
The theme of this deck is control until you are finally able to lay your angels in play and make them spite your opponent.

The Key cards:

Quicksilver Amulet
With this card you are able to put your angels into play by only paying 4 generic mana instead of waiting until you have enough lands of the required color. Imagine having only 4 mana and you may put Iona, Shield of Emeria into the battlefield and prevent your opponent from casting any further spells of your chosen color.

Isochron Scepter
Using this artifact you may imprint a chosen instant and play it at anytime as long as you have this artifact in play. Most likely it would be best to copy Mana Leak or Silence.

Ponder and Terminus combo
With ponder you can make a miracle happen by looking at the top three cards of your library and once you are able to see Terminus you can now set this card to be drawn on your next turn so that you may cast it by only paying for its miracle cost. If you don't like what you see then you are given the chance to shuffle your library.

And there you have it!
