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 :)
