If they are going to Just the Wind Ormendahl when I put him on the field I probably don't have mana to cast a second spell. Flipping Westvale Abbey Flip is 6 mana which is pretty high. I don't think waiting til turn 8 or later seems that great.

I built my own version of this deck from your ideas here, and after playtesting it, I found that it can take a while to get the Prince out and it might be worth having. Additionally, it has rebound which would allow Ormendahl to have even more evasion for two turns

Demonic Pact feels like a dead card often enough that I actually don't cast it in fear of not being able to sac it later. Pious Evangel Flip is good in the with Hangarback Walker but not Demonic Pact. You don't get the value that you want. If you cast Pious Evangel Flip after Demonic Pact and you are playing a competent opponent then you will not keep it around long enough to use it with your Demonic Pact putting you that much closer to losing.
The deck just doesn't run enough creatures for the deck to want Pious Evangel Flip. It doesn't really do much other than sit there waiting to flip but other wise you really aren't gaining any life from it. It isn't even a good way to get rid of Demonic Pact since it doesn't allow you to sac right away.
Hanweir Militia Captain Flip is kind of in the same boat as the Pious Evangel. There aren't enough creatures to make this work on a consistant basis. This card is really good in my friends U/W human deck. It's scary good in that deck. (the blue in his deck is for Dragonlord Ojutai and Reflector Mage. Mix Ojutai and always watching and you have a winner)
All in all I was doing some revisions and cut the Demonic Pact, Pious Evangel Flip, Angelic Purge, and the Hanweir Militia Captain Flip. Added in some spot removal of Dead Weight, Grasp of Darkness, Secure the Wastes, Stasis Snare, and Silkwrap.
It felt a little better but still really slow. My friend suggested maybe trying the new avycn and seeing how she does in the deck.

Well I've been jumping back and forth between this deck and a Jund Deck that you can find on my profile or going here http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/Jund Midrange/
It seems to be doing okay I just need to tweak it a little.
