not totally sure what you feel like doing with your deck so I can't make too many suggestions about the deck other than probably cutting some lands for other cards and adding in more mana ramp since you have pretty much none, mana ramp is a bit hard in a deck that doesn't use green but there are some options
i think you could replace Sigil of the Empty Throne with Angelic Accord since your deck is to gain life, it sort of utilizes it. You could also use an Archangel of Thune to weaponize lifegain, or use the Sanguine Bond +Exquisite Blood combo it might not be friendly but it isn't that bad
you could add in tutors:Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen is a decent card for 3 mana mid game Sorin, Grim Nemesis is fairly good here i'd think but better if it hits a higher cost card, i dont think he'd live long enough to pump enough value out though.
not very easy on the wallet but solid rock here: Mana Crypt
Any color ones: Manalith, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Doubling Cube(doubles all the Mana you have for 2), Cryptolith Fragment Flip(doesnt really flip though), Corrupted Grafstone, Gilded Lotus, Fellwar Stone

Beseech the Queen as i think it is more flexable then diabolic tutor allowing for a potentially cheaper price if all you need is a kill spell and if you need a bomb spell you can still get it

I'm gonna go ahead and assume that when you wrote "every so often" in your description you made a mistake (every so often means occasionally). If that is so, you might wanna go ahead and fix that. Also, you might wanna consider playing Beseech the Queen. The black mana should not be a problem, and since you are probably going to have a lot of lands on the battlefield, you should be able to pretty much get any card in your deck with it.I would think about cutting the Urza lands, since the probability of having them all on the battlefield is pretty slim, I think. Most of the ramp spells you are using are searching for either basics or a particular type of land (i.e. Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, Forest), and I doubt that you are going to want to use your tutors to get lands.

At Profet93, I just checked out your deck and it definitely looks really nice!!! I almost went the creature-less route on this one but it would screw with my playgroup's meta a bit too much and would draw a lot more hate. I'll leave some comments on your page.
Shizo, Death's Storehouse is not needed here because Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed already has horsemanship making him virtually unblockable. I have not come across another horsemanship user and the card would not be useful enough with my other creatures to merit a slot.
I like Overwhelming Forces more than Decree of Pain because of flavor and it being a much more political card. Sometimes you only want to knock down one unruly opponent. Also, it has no effect on your board-state (aside from drawing you extra cards).
Trading Post is a possibility. I'll need to test this out.
My grief with Corpse Dance is that I need to keep track of the order of my graveyard. Once people start seeing cards in my graveyard, everyone wants a look and which creature is the "top" creature becomes a blur. I love the card, but the added logistics make it frustrating to use. It might make a return soon and, if so, I'll cut out Necromancy. I'll probably also cut Reanimate in favor of Chainer, Dementia Master.
Snuff Out is there for flavor. I have the version with the Liliana art as well as the Liliana version of Demonic Tutor and SDCC versions of the usable Liliana planeswalkers. I could probably cut it for a foil Karn Liberated, but it has scored me some sweet kills.
Thanks for the advice!! It is definitely greatly appreciated. Always glad to run into another Xiahou Dun user!

Clues get sacrificed, not tapped. They're not around for Paradox Engine to do anything to. They don't come into the battlefield tapped, and you don't tap them for their ability. Nothing in your current decklist taps for anything other than your lands.

I can help, but can you help me after that too? Im pretty new to magic :)
First of all I think you need more tutors, Diabolic Tutor or Beseech the Queen if you want to stay on a budget, second of all where are the Azor's Elocutors? Im not saying every Atraxa deck needs one but... it helps a lot! Kalonian Hydra and Armorcraft Judge are two other strong +1/+1 synergy cards and you can also think about adding vivid lands for more mana of all the colors (like Vivid Meadow).

Decided to add a Godless Shrine to the land base so I can add Stony Silence and Apostle's Blessing to the sideboard. Also, added Tombstalker to the main board. With how many 1-2 cmc instants and sorceries I'm running, delve made sense. Made a couple other changes to the sideboard to help shore up some weaknesses.
I'm debating getting rid of Beseech the Queen and Goldnight Castigator, but I have no idea what to sub in. Thought about Goblin Dark-Dwellers for the Castigator, but I wasn't sure about Beseech. Yes, it's a decent tutor, but I always end up feeling like I wasted my turn if I have to use it to find Heartless Summoning.
