Here are some upgrades that could be made,
Unbudgetizing the manabase, playing cards like Godless Shrine to help increase consistency in mana.
Serra Ascendant can easily find a place in this build.
Other options that I don't know what to replace with are Ravos, Soultender, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Noxious Gearhulk, Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Debtors' Knell, Sorin Markov, and Liliana Vess.

Lands look fine, but there could be space for 1 or 2 Shambling Vents.
the only card, I'm really sure shouldn't be there, is Vampire Nighthawk. It's lightning bolt range, and doesn't do anything for your lifegain plan until it can attack. Maybe they should be Raise the Alarm?

Sunbond is insane in this deck! It lets you combo with well.. everything! It's its own power generator! Attaching it to Archangel of Thune also lets you double its power every turn. Ajani's Pridemate is an excellent 2 mana beater that excels off of profiting from extra life! However both of those choices subject you to being targeted eventually at the table c:

They trigger separately. If events cause an ability to trigger multiple times simultaneously, the triggers aren't combined into a single ability. They're all put onto the stack as separate objects and will resolve separately from one another. In your example this can matter a lot, as it affects how Patron of the Kitsune interacts with cards like Ajani's Pridemate and Archangel of Thune.

So I note you haven't considered lands as yet. For casual play the common/uncommon tap lands are ok, however the rare lands can get expensive. For your deck and theme I would suggest Scoured Barrens and Blighted Steppe.
Soul Warden is a card you will want, probably over Deathgreeter alternatively Perimeter Captain might be an option. Falkenrath Noble is probably too slow, consider cards like Lone Rider Flip, Gifted Aetherborn, Blood Artist, Ajani's Pridemate or Voracious Hatchling. For a finisher a card like Blood Baron of Vizkopa or Divinity of Pride would fit.

So... what is the exact way, you want this deck to win in? Going wide, with many creatures (Crusader of Odric indicates this)? Then you need something that gives you many creatures on the table. Gaining a lot of life? That's also a way, but I don't think you go at it very efficiently. Soul sisters with token generators are simply better. However: drop the "many creatures matters" approach and focus on life-gain, because your creatures aren't cheap so you will not outnumber your opponent anyway. A 3/3 Seraph of the Masses is neither particularly intimidating, nor likely to win you a game.
Mainly, it looks like you are going for creatures with abilities that trigger from lifegain. But where is Ajani's Pridemate then?
Also, if you want to do something that could be a bit funny and fit with your deck: Blind Obedience and Deathbringer Liege. No, it's not particularly competitive (which I think this isn't to begin with - it seems very casual), but it's so funny when it succeeds. Tithe Drinker goes well with this plan.
