Alseid of Life's Bounty Discussion

Alseid of Life's Bounty would make a better replacement for you than Court Cleric since he can double as protection for a more important creature (like your Vito). Especially since you're not even running an Ajani walker for his extra +1/+1
I also like Vampire of the Dire Moon instead of Banehound. Haste on a 1/1 isn't really a huge deal, and having a Deathtouch option in addition to their Lifelink means they can double as genuinely threatening blockers still (unlike the hound).
Hopefully these suggestions help you along a little bit. None of them are particularly costly to order singles of either (since that's a big consideration for my own decks).

Vampire of the Dire Moon gives you some removal and lifelink. I would go down to at most 2 each of any legendary creatures you have. Maybe more for Vito since he is integral to causing damage when you gain life. I would replace all Indulging Patrician with Healer's Hawk. You can get them out way faster and having a flying lifelink buffed sooner is better. Then you can use Alseid of Life's Bounty for his sacrificing instead to keep your big hitters alive.

You seemingly have a lot of cards that have some lifegain, but don't do much for your plan in the long run, i.e. Light of Hope, Consecrate / Consume and Revitalize. Ajani's Pridemate and Bloodthirsty Aerialist want continuous ways to gain life, which is best achieved with early lifelink creatures such as Alseid of Life's Bounty and Speaker of the Heavens - the last of which also cares about you gaining life.
Luminous Broodmoth is a strong card, but it usually wants sac outlets to really shine and it adds no synergy to the lifegain theme.
Ethereal Absolution is another juicy card, but again, it has no synergy and often times doesn't impact the board enough for a 6-drop.
I get that you want as many lifegain triggers as possible, but playing a ton of lands that enter tapped might make the deck too slow. Having a good mana base and strong synergy between your spells should be sufficient. I'd swap them for shock lands, unless you're running on a budget.
Having an avg. cmc of almost 3.5, you normally want 1-2 more lands for the sake of consistency, or lower the curve.
Honestly, most of the good lifegain cards are in white right now, so using that as a base and "splashing" the other colors in would probably be the way to go.
Hope that helps. Good luck with the deck!

Alas, the name is lost on me but I did enjoy the concept. The Great Henge doesn't synergize well with Hushbringer and since you're more likely to draw the latter. I am a huge fan of the Henge so I ended up sideboarding Hushie and adding 3 Alseid of Life's Bounty and another Henge. He's a 1-drop which also allows you to negate some removal of an early creature or protect one from a wipe plus he has lifelink. Cool concept and nice work!

The CMC of the deck is really high, how about Growth Spiral to help you ramp out? Alseid of Life's Bounty can also really help to protect your combo, but dies to Shatter the Sky (although it can keep your Champion alive through the wipe if you choose to sac it that way...). Grafdigger's Cage might be worthy of sideboard.

At first, I thought you were on a budget but then I saw the price of Luminous Broodmoth and now I'm confused. If you are on a budget, there's nothing wrong with that. But if you aren't then you shouldn't be playing Evolving Wilds over either Temple of Silence or Temple of Triumph (at the very least). And if you really aren't on a budget, Fabled Passage is basically a better Evolving Wilds.
Still on the topic of your mana base, are you having any issues casting Winota, Joiner of Forces? Because the way your mana base is currently, it would like you would. At the very minimum, I would recommend at least 1-2 basic Mountain to ensure you can cast her when you find her. That being said, the rest of my suggestions:
Reverent Hoplite is way too expensive (mana-wise) for 20 lands. I would either add more lands so you can cast it when you don't have access to Winota or pull 2 copies. Otherwise, that's a cool card to pull out with her effect.
Personally, I don't care much for Necropanther because it doesn't have many mutate targets so it's generally going to be a 3/3 for 3. Which isn't bad, but isn't good either. I would recommend replacing it with Raise the Alarm which is good for two reasons: firstly, it is an instant, meaning you can cast it after your opponent has cast Shatter the Sky, Deafening Clarion or some other wrath effect. Secondly, they aren't humans so they trigger Winota's effect.
Your list is interesting, and I would love to hear how it plays and see where you take it. May you never flood and have fun playing!
