Just a hint if you come looking for help in the future :)
The first thing I would like to add is that you are playing way too much land. In a 60 card deck with a steap mana curve, you probably only want 24-25 lands. Now your deck is currently 64. That's not too bad, but if you could shave it down to 60 that'll be doing yourslef a sall favor. (Consistancy is just lovely.)
Secondly, I can spot a few cards that I either find too bad to play, imo, or doesn't really fit your strategy too well.
Ajani's Chosen The card is perfectly reasoable as is right now, if not a little too clonky, but if you decide to take my advice on the Mantra's it's probably not playable afterwards.
Felidar Sovereign Awesome as it is, seems like a very unlikely wincondition for you. If you ever get to a point where it would win you the game, you are probably already winnning.
You have a couple more cards, that I'm a bit unhappy with, but are reasonable for the moment being.
Thirdly if you want to play a slower deck, you have to be able to interact.
If you can't answer the things your opponent does from time to time, you are going to lose to a lot of combo decks.
Fourthly: Here are some cards I hink you should look into, priced around the 1$ mark, or less. (If you want that lifegain theme to stick)
Qasali Pridemage Realy powerful card, that happens to be a cat, and can sometimes "interact" with opposing gameplans.
More Ajani's Pridemate - It's a great finisher, if you have some lifegain.
Condemn - Cheap creature removal.
More Blossoming Sands, fixing mana gaining life.
Blessed Alliance - Everthing goo in this world.
Eidolon of Rhetoric - put this in your sideboard, you wont regret it.
You are more than welcome to ask me for advice if you need an experienced player for something :) and good luck.

@VesuvanDoppelbanger I am aware of Muddle the Mixture but i feel as though it slows down my clock with little compensation. This deck certainly can win via a Zur's Weirding lock but it primarily wins via burn and Myr token spam. So proving space and spending mana on a card that does not protect or ensure my core strategy would be baseless. As for Ajani Goldmane I will think about it. I feel that should i require pumping I would be better served using Gideon, Ally of Zendikar as he better synergies with my core plan. Life gain is merely a means to survive against long term strategies in which my Zur combo must be utilized (that and it completely shuts down most burn and aggro decks).

Zur's Weirding is such an underrated card, glad to see it used here.
Muddle the Mixture might work for grabbing 2CMC pieces, if countering sorc/inst isn't needed.
Tremors, Charm, Chamber, Champion, and Return are all targetable w/ that.

More like a Elspeth Tirel, or Elspeth, Knight-Errant. Even an Elspeth, Sun's Champion for a control matchup. Ajani Goldmane is a fun option for lifegain/creature buffs as well. Ajani, Caller of the Pride is another that is fun to use the -3 on a 5/5 Gideon.

Added the suggested Boros Charm to my Sideboard.
This will allow you, to safe your creatures (and all the good enchantment, aswell) from the considered Boardwipes. I think it is even worth a slot in the main deck, by now I just can't decide on which card to exlude for it instead.
Again, thank you so much for your comment kingboo3000, I really apprechiate it!
I will also look after other card draw mechanics to speed the deck a little further. Didn't found anything just yet.
For the suggestions of the Planeswalker: I also gave them a though, even before gigagloin mentioned them. Sorin, Grim Nemesis is interesting. I just don't really like his +1 ability, since this deck is some kind of agro and showing your opponents which cards you draw might be a big disadvantage, somewhere down the line. The +1 ability is also not really strong, because as kingboo3000 mentioned in his comment, my deck is fairly low on converted mana costs, which will make the +1 ability draining only few life points out of my opponents. But since it is EDH, this might still be a good thing. Will have to test it.
For the other two Planeswalkers, Ajani Goldmane and Ajani Steadfast, they might also be pretty good. I'm just not sure which part of my deck should be cut. I will think about it and get back to it, when I got an better understanding of the deck and which cards are really key and essential.
Same goes to you gigagloin, thank you really much for your comment and your suggestions! Looking forward to more tips and card evaluation.
Wish you all a good day :)

Not sure about their strength myself but I you want to include more planeswalkers I think Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Ajani Goldmane and Ajani Steadfast might add some value. Sorin provides additional card draw, planeswalker removal and many vampires if you can trigger his ultimate while the Ajanis can generate lots of +1/+1 counters quickly.
