Sure thing. Sorry that took a while:

Out:

In:

Mana base(33 is enough at this average cmc):

That's what I'd do and then playtest it and go tweaking. Hope that helps and also that it wasn't too brutal. For real tweaking please add a list of decks you play against or how a normal game looks like(amount of combo decks, creature decks, control decks per game). You do run lot's of creature spot removal, but I let that in, since you might need it.

Angel's Grace is the best fog effect. It should replace Angelsong

If the goal is Scepter Silence to get to Approach twice, you need different Counterspells.

Mana Leak will fall flat on turn 8.

And Hindering Light is a great card for a sideboard but won't protect your Approach.

I would swap those and the Mana Leaks out for Negate and Remand

I think you are trying to do too many things with this deck. Jeskai Control is a pretty well-established archetype, there's no real need to change it this much in my opinion. The only creatures you need in this deck are the 4x Snapcaster Mage, I'd get rid of everything else. You also have too many shock lands, not enough total lands, not enough color variance, and not enough basics to play around Blood Moon, Field of Ruin, etc. I'd go with 4x Scalding Tarn, 4x Flooded Strand, 2x Hallowed Fountain, 2x Steam Vents, 2x Sacred Foundry, 3x Celestial Colonnade, 3x Island, 2x Plains, and 2x Mountain. Then without all the creatures you can run boardwipes, I'd go with 2x Supreme Verdict and 1x Wrath of God. 3x Cryptic Command, and, to shake things up, 3x Nahiri, the Harbinger and 1x Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.

You're running a lot of questionable spells; I'd cut 4x Hindering Light (too specific), 4x Failure (kind of just like a worse Snapcaster Mage) and 2x Momentary Blink for 4x Opt, 2x Spell Snare, 2x Mana Leak, 2x Logic Knot, and 2x Electrolyze.

buckeyetron I know, I just didn't want to feel like I was taking attention away from this deck.

Spazik008 Prison-style, with Jenara, Asura of War mostly for the colors. Kismet and Winter Orb, supported by Garruk Wildspeaker, Armageddon, and relevant Borderposts. Fill out with some control like Counterspell and Hindering Light and get ready for hate. I'm a control player at heart.

These are my suggestions on what cards to cut. Feel free to agree or disagree:

Hanna, Ship's Navigator

Tezzeret the Seeker

Mechanized Production

Most artifacts in the deck are not worth tutoring/reproducing. In the case of Tezzeret, your mana rocks should be on the field to cast him, not the other way around. The ship's navigator is slow and is better replaced by high greater utility graveyard effects such as Regrowth. You will never win with Mechanized Production and there are both better copy effects out there and no need to use them in this deck. Norn's Annex, Contagion Engine and Contagion Clasp are the only reasonable target in the deck. Mana rocks are better off having more variants of the same thing then this card, Tangle Wire will screw you over, and it doesn't interact with Darksteel Reactor.

Spread the Sickness - Too much cost for the Splice onto Arcane effect. You're better off with 2 separate cards.Hindering Light - If you need to remove a counterspell pick this one. Its niche and heavy on devotion.
Deepglow Skate - This card is in the same realm as proliferate, but on the opposite end of the spectrum. It wants a narrow focus whereas proliferate wants a wide effect (ex. Avenger of Zendikar vs. Master Biomancer).Thrummingbird - A unreliable low impact card. You would need to cast this as a sorcery speed, pass your turn, protect it from 100% damage because it is a 1/1, attack with it and have that attack resolve hitting the opponent directly.
Kor Haven - This card does not give colored mana in a 4-color deck where mana fixing is very important. If you are planning for the paid effect I would suggest Maze of Ith instead.
Thassa, God of the SeaRestoration Angel

These two cards don't interact with your deck. For Thassa, God of the Sea refer to the above Geier Reach Sanitarium and for Restoration Angel you need strong ETB triggers.

Debtors' Knell - This is a 7 costing card. The objective of the deck is to cheat out a biggy by T3,4,5. At this turn, you should either be hard casting the creature or refreshing your hand for another reanimate combo.Noxious Revival - EDH is a slower format and therefore rewards higher impact effects. This card gives you one card after one turn. In contrast, you could be running a more impactful card like Seasons Past. It can give you 10 cards for cost 5.Time Warp - Taking extra turns is cool, but it doesn't fit with the playstyle of your deck. You don't ramp hard enough to gain benefit from its effect and it has negative synergies with cards such as Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. At worst it is Explore and at best Atraxa, Praetors' Voice gets to proliferate twice.

HAHAHA oh gosh, I did call her a him :s woops. Thanks for the advise.

As for the land, Yea I see your point. So currently I Have 24 land. I might consider putting 1 more in, but you may be interested to know that I haven't had a problem with land and I think the reason is because I draw deeper into my deck with cards like Serum Visions and Wall of Omens and Hindering Light. These all have effects that let me draw deeper into the deck, bringing my land into my hands slightly faster then usual. I know that the mana-curve on this deck it large though, which makes it slow and sluggish, but it's about as low as I can get it.

Thanks for the feedback though, I will play test and see how often I get baneslayer out ;) aiming for a turn 5 drop if possible :) S/he's the whole reason I made this deck if we are begin honest.
