First up, you need acceleration more than lands. Cut down to 36 lands. Add Sol Ring, Boros Signet, Boros Cluestone, Land Tax, Mana Vault, Basalt Monolith, Chromatic Lantern, Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, Hedron Archive, Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus until you have about 41 cards that produce mana. I suggest Sol, Signet, Monolith, Chromatic, Hedron personally.
Next up, strip back everything. I go for the 10 removal, 5 draw, 35 creature, the rest value school of basic deck design. Try to pick the angels you really want and cut the chaff ones.
Also you could have a more thematic commander. Anya, Merciless Angel is a good stuff Angel for the red zone. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is another good red zone commander but attracts more hate. Basandra, Battle Seraph is a more political commander, forcing attacks etc and turning off combat tricks and removal. Aurelia, the Warleader is just a generically good commander who helps attacks. Razia, Boros Archangel is pretty bad but is thematic.

Okay, so the description sums it up but the key is to use Hedron Archive, Vizier of Tumbling Sands, and Shefet Monitor to play a turn 5 New Perspectives. Then you can cycle through your deck at will (for free) and gain mana as you go using Vizier of Tumbling Sands and Shefet Monitor. Haze of Pollen can be used to help you survive until you combo off. Does that help?

Hey, this is a great deck and I love the way it plays, but unfortunately by the time Oracle's Vault hits standard, the Zendikar sets will have cycled out. This means Seer's Lantern and Hedron Archive will have to be replaced by other alternatives.

I found a very fun cheap deck to play was mono blue or URMetalwork Colossus you have cheap lands like Sanctum of Ugin and Inventors' Fair. You also run a cheap base of cards like Key to the City, Prophetic Prism, Metalspinner's Puzzleknot, Cultivator's Caravan, Hedron Archive, and Foundry Inspector and you run stuff like Glint-Nest Crane to smooth out you'r deck as well as spells such as Unsubstantiate and Reverse Engineer to keep tempo and get to metalwork and running 2 Elder Deep-Fiend did wonders. this was a buget deck I ran and 4-0 multiple FMN's with. good match up against Snakes, delerium, and control decks. I went Blue red though when I realized I needed sideboard for Copy Cat as well as Aggro such as Spirits and Vehicles in the form of Incendiary Sabotage and Shock and I only added Aether Hub and Spirebluff Canal and that made my deck far more competitive when I played gameday and tied for 1st twice only loosing to a spirits strategy one day and 1-1-1 a Jeskia control. The deck is very fun you get to drop 2 10/10's turn 5 essentially free consistently and because simple destroy target creature spells arent as popular(ie fatal push, and direct damage) the typically survive. fun, flashy, and cheap.

I like the morph theme, with the manifest and the Ixidron! That's some neat tech, looks like lots of fun.
I'd advise against Ancestral Statue - going infinite isn't as much fun as it sounds. It's just anti-climactic, and makes everyone else at the table feel like they've wasted all the time that they'd invested into an otherwise fun game.
See if you can find some more reliable card-draw. This looks like the kind of deck that easily runs out of gas. Mind's Eye is pretty solid, and there are some great mana-rocks that turn into cards when you're done with them (Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Commander's Sphere)

As for Batterskull... it's really annoying for some decks (mostly Burn, but also control) to deal with. That's pretty much the reason it's in there.
