Angels and Demons

I want to make an Angel and Demon deck so i used little pieces of paper as substitutes since they are so pricey.  If this deck has some good potential I will buy the cards I don't have yet.  The idea is simple.  Ramp into huge creatures.  It kind of started off as a joke but it has actually done really well against my control and aggro decks.  I'm just curious how you guys think it will do on friday nights because I always get crushed with my other decks.  Oh and the lands have actually never been a problem for me.  I've tried about 10 games or so and I always manage to do just fine with so few lands.  

Creatures:

4 x Arbor Elf
4 x Sublime Archangel
4 x Restoration Angel
4 x Angel of Serenity
4 x Avacyn, Angel of Hope
4 x Griselbrand
3 x Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis
2 x Harvester of Souls

Sorcery:

4 x Farseek
4 x Ranger's Path

Artifact:

4 x Gilded Lotus

Lands:

3 x Plains
3 x Swamp
4 x Overgrown Tomb
4 x Temple Garden
4 x Sunpetal Grove
i think you have too many griselbrans and avacyns also somberwald sage would help alot IMO
You have nothing to wipe off O-rings or Detention spheres and Terminus would be the funniest thing against this deck..
I had the sage in there but there was just too much ramp.  What would you suggest to take care of o-rings and terminus?
The choices are all suboptimal because each card wants to function in a completely different type of deck.

Restoration Angel interacts negatively with other Angels

Sublime Archangel wants to be very specifically in token decks with evasive options.

Angel of Serenity, Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Griselbrand all want to be in reanimation strategies, or super grindy control decks.

Nefarox wants to come into a deck very specifically to hose Hexproof and attack with multiple Exalted triggers.

Chupracabra wants to be in a deck with the likes of Bloodthrone Vampire and lots of "kill your stuff" spells.

So what kinds of ideas do you have for an Angels and Demons deck?  I agree with the Restoration Angel and Harvester of Souls.  The other 5 seem to all work well on there own so wouldn't they work just fine together?

You also want removal spells to slow the game down, more land to have better opening hands,  and ways to protect and reuse your creatures. Unburial Rites too. That means you have to make cuts.
