Please evaluate this deck. It seems to work extremely well against most decks I've played against.

This is a red-white protection deck. It is entirely flying, and the main creature types are Angels and Dragons.

On the dragon side, I run Steel Hellkite, which enables me to tap X mana when attacking destroy all permanents with CMC X a player control if the attack dealt damage to that player. I also run Rimescale Dragon which allows me to tap a target creature and put an ice counter on it, immobilizing it until the ice counter is removed. I use Imperial Hellkite 's morph effect to bring either Steel Hellkite or Rimescale Dragon to my hand.

On the Angel side, I run several effective cards. First, Angelic Arbiter prevents opponents from attacking if they have cast spells and from casting spells if they have attacked. Avacyn, Angel of Hope , as you all well know, makes all permanents I control indestructible. Finally, my most epic combo in the deck, is Concerted Effort and Pristine Angel . I use Concerted Effort to give all creatures I control Pristine Angel 's protection from all colors and artifacts. Then, I play any creature with vigilance. From this point forward, I can attack directly with every creature.

This deck is a high-costing deck, mana-wise, so I recently added more mana to it, as well as went from 2 quicksilver amulets to 4. I have yet to test this minor revision in a real game.

I would suggest cutting down to 60 cards... maybe read this article http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/rc/188But I do see how this deck could beat new players as it can have a good end game with some early defense.

Thanks Demarge. I was thinking, perhaps, of removing the red part of this deck. The Angel side seems pretty strong without it. That would cut the size. And perhaps I can add some better cards to it :)
