There are too many filterlands - there is a large chance of drawing only in the opening hand.

7 lands that can produce G the first turn is perhaps barely sufficient, but only 3 that produce U is not enough to fix bad opening hands with Ponder.

The deck is also depending a lot on enchanting something with Shield of the Oversoul in order for the opponent to say "gg". Sadly, there are lots and lots of cards that can deal with that being played maindeck in the meta.

Your deck isn't faster than Kithkin and RDW - so it depends on gaining tempo advantage by cards like for instance Stoic Angel, Kitchen Finks and Rhox War Monk. Your only chance is to strengthen that aspect of the deck.

Against control, neither this deck nor the one having the changes I propose will have the slightest chance of winning. Bant needs extensive sideboarding against control, as well as 4 gaddock teeg and lots of stuff to protect him.

First, minimize number of Shadowmoor filterlands - you have to mulligun if you get filterlands only in your opening hand. Another mulligun chance which is obviously no good at all.

Second, your mana curve is too concentrated on 3. I reckon creatures like Steward Valeron or Wilt-Leaf Liege.

Third, Stoic Angel is metagame call. If you see many kithkins then you put it into mainboard. Otherwise try something else in that spot. Also I reckon Remove Soul than Hindering Light.

I tested this list today, its not good the best vs QNT. Hindering Light is a CUT. Maybe Jace beleren main. I will think about a Bant aggro Control :=)
