+1 from me!

How strong are the decks you face? How strong do you want to make it. Also Oloro can be so many things. As far as I got it, your plan is to get some life here and there, to be able to draw cards off of Oloro and then win via some combo you don't actively search for or combat damage. Also what's your budget?
First low budget steps would be to add in all signets and talismans in your color(they all cost 2 and make 1 mana right away). They are the best colored accelerators esper has. Then there's also Mana Crypt and Mana Vault if you want way too much mana quickly.
Second: Pick a strategy. If it's beatdown + refill with Oloro from lifelink then go all in for that. If you want to win via Felidar Guardian or the nifty Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond combos make sure to add in the good black tutors Vampiric Tutor Demonic Tutor and Grim Tutor for example. To gain the life for felidar maybe run Beacon of Immortality. If you don't want to go for a combo directly, then I'd suggest focus more on effective creatures. Sure the soulsisters make a life for every creature, but what if your creatures on board can't attack and you can't play any more? Also taxing yourself for each creature played might not be ideal either. A fun way to make sure your creatures are always effective are the Archetypes from theros, and all of them in esper are great! Archetype of Courage, Archetype of Imagination and Archetype of Finality are all great for a deck that wants to attack. Also True Conviction does exactly what you want in this plan :)
Tell us a little as to what you wanna do with your deck and what your meta is; then I can provide better help. Also imho you don't run enough removal but that's to be added in when we know more :)

How does Beacon of Immortality work out in here? I just don't see it being that useful to winning.
Skullclamp I enjoy in my Ayli deck if I need more cards but life isn't as important.
Sword of the Animist has never disappointed me. Early game I slap it on Ayli and grab a few extra lands. Late game I slap it on a creature I'm about to sacrifice and swing at some one then sack pre combat damage (no enemy that way). For +2 mana you get +1 life and fetch a land.
Sangromancer has been a great life gain card for me. Creatures are always dying so why not get some life for it. It's even better if your playing against someone else who does a lot of scarify of there own.
Here is my deck Ayli, Eternal board wipes if you want to look over it for more ideas.

not sure if Beacon of Immortality counts as "gaining life", might want to talk about it to your playgroup beforehand.

Hey, xoxoxo! Use this stance to make a enemy think before their act: Beacon of Immortality doubles your health, Archers' Parapet grants you defence, losing one other's life, Phyrexian Obliterator damages the same amount it has back, and Vesuva copies a land for stance at, altogether forming the true Supreme Card. All other lines of cards required for any similar stances will not come through. Add them on, and lend me away to know.

Hey, Grimaptor! Use this stance to make a enemy think before their act: Beacon of Immortality doubles your health, Archers' Parapet grants you defence, losing one other's life, Phyrexian Obliterator damages the same amount it has back, and Vesuva copies a land for stance at, altogether forming the true Supreme Card. All other lines of cards required for any similar stances will not come through. This will improve it for now.
