Oloro makes some decent points, get the deck to 60 totals cards... right away. I would suggest increase your land. Depending on which way you take this deck, you'll need at least 22, maybe even 24 if you put some of the bigger casting cost spells. I don't know what kind of budget you're working with, but Canopy Vista and Fortified Village are legal through September 29 of this year, and Scattered Groves is good for the next 2 years. They are some good options for your mana base.

Cast Out is a great removal spell- I agree and think you should you run them.

The stuff about the energy is ok, but it could change your deck configuration substantially. Green has some great energy cards like Bristling Hydra, but then you would ned to add the energy support cards like Attune with Aether, not just the land.

Cards that just give you life aren't very good. The better approach are cards that give you life AND present other options. For example, Blessed Alliance gives you the option to get 4 life (to flip your rider), or act as some removal to make them sack a guy, or even a surprise combat trick to untap 2 of your guys (one of which could be the Glory-Bound Initiate mentioned earlier)... OR you could mix and match them as you need. It's a versatile card that is way better than the Chaplain's Blessing.

Also, Oakenform and Dusk is a nom-bo. Your going to kill whatever you enchant if you have to cast it... If you're looking to play ramp spells, it's probably better the instant\ sorcery type. If you do want to play the board wipes in the main deck, then you'll want some recurring creatures- any with the embalm mechanic or the new eternalize would be good.

I think what you have listed here is several deck ideas tossed together. And in order for you to be successful, you need to focus the deck to do 1 or 2 things really well. I know you want to play with life gain, so you could do an energy theme and look for some life gain cards there... or you could focus on the cards that have life link and just use pump spells on them, or you could go heavy tokens with Anointed Procession and Anointer Priest.

Either way, good luck with it.

Mighty Leap is bad because it takes up space that can devoted to removal but I too have used it for simple evasion so that is why people are telling you it is bad. First things first get to 60 cards it makes your deck so much more consistent, I know you like Oakenform but it can go. Lifegain isn't really a thing in standard now outside of abzan tokens but this is an interesting deck. First off, the most important thing for a deck to be competitive is to have some form of removal. Cast Out is currently the best option available to you as it has the versatility of being able to cycle when you don't need it. Aethersphere Harvester is another card that could be interesting in your deck but then you also need 4 Aether Hub and probably Servant of the Conduit. I would get rid of Long Road Home for Anointer Priest as that would trigger when you embalm Sacred Cat You could also look at the Glory-Bound Initiate + Always Watching interaction; swinging for 5 lifelink each turn can really gain you a lot of life. If you have any questions let me know.

If you want to go green try Brood Monitor it will allow you to trigger Eldrazi Displacer when it enters without Panharmonicon allowing for infinite etb triggers and entirely new combos for cards like Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit or go for a soul sisters aproach with cards like Anointer Priest Soul's Attendant Soul Warden which can combo with Aetherflux Reservoir.

I think that without the Winding Constrictor the Walking Ballista and the Animation Module aren't very good now ...

You could try the Anointer Priest, Sram's Expertise, Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Pull from Tomorrow (very good with the Improvise artifact).

okay, wow, I like this general idea for a deck. Nice Job! The biggest problem I see is that you have a lot of cards that synergize nicely with token decks, without including much token generation itself. Although things like Bone Picker is SUPER satisfying if you can cast it for one black mana, it doesn't make any tokens itself, which is sorta the point with zulaport tokens decks. Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim are both great sac outlets, I might add one or two more of them for consistency, unless you find you are drawing them enough (you wanna make sure you can kill off your tokens anytime so a board wipe or certain spot removal doesn't ruin your plan entirely)Anointer Priest provides value with tokens, but i think the extra life she gives you isn't worth the efficiency you could be getting with other cards, not to mention her embalm cost is pretty expensive for it's value. (Maybe try Pious Evangel  Flip in her place if you like the life as I think his flip is sort of like a Zulaport CutthroatNext you need some better token generation. Things that make your board really wide really fast. Servo Exhibition Sram's Expertise Angel of Invention even Visionary Augmenter for budget. This should increase your consistency in token generation much more. And then once that is reliable you can worry about proper removal. lemme know if this helped, I like these kind of concepts so I'll try and keep in touch with this one if you find it becomes more consistent!

P.S. This is probably bad advice, but I always liked Hope Against Hope for these kind of wide decks, especially with the militia captain and Thalia's Lieutenant, just don't get two for one'd :)

I like the deck, but Dusk//Dawn will be a major issue.Personally I'm leaning more towards Paradox Engine, Mirage Mirror, Anointer Priest as Pride Sovereign makes a good impression of Hidden Stockpile ie Sam Black's Abazan Tokens. Maybe with Vizier of the Menagerie as a Transverse target black could be cut to turn into this G/W tokens.

I like the theme of Eldrazi, but I think you need a few more Eldrazi producing cards than just Wharf Infiltrator and Extricator of Sin to make it worth it.

I say take out Sacred Cat for Anointer Priest if you want life gain; but I personally prefer Labyrinth Guardian to both of them because of it's strength.

I highly recommend replacing Spell Queller with Angel of Sanctions because the angel fits the theme much better and has more synergy (especially with Anointed Procession.
