This is two different decks fighting each other for space.
The other is Mono-White lifegain. Ajani's Welcome, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Authority of the Consuls, Archangel of Thune, Ashes of the Abhorrent for the sideboard, maybe Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Lone Rider Flip, perhaps, as a finisher, Nyx-Fleece Ram is stunningly potent against fast creature decks, in a similar vein to the also-pioneer-legal Wall of Essence.
I think your first step in making improvements to this deck is deciding which of these your deck wants to be.

Excellent Aetherflux reservoir! Suggestion based around my friend's Oloro deck God Wont Let Me Die 2 - Bloodbond Vampire - Children of Korlis (This basically gives you two shots from Aetherflux Reservoir. - Cliffhaven Vampire - Defiant Bloodlord - Famished Paladin - Felidar Sovereign - Serra Ascendant - Twilight Prophet

Dont know what you are trying to do with the deck since you have several cards for others builds in here.Dont see a use for Bloodbond Vampire since you not gaining much life.Bloodhusk Ritualist for my deck wasnt that good. Kheru Bloodsucker not worth since you dont have my creatures for it.No reason for him at all unless its a fillerSkeletal Changeling.Chainer's Edict feel like there are better things that do this. Planar Bridge tutors are better. Not the best for how you have this deck built right nowBlighted Fen. Geier Reach Sanitarium dont use lol. Piranha Marsh use a Swamp. Not worth it Sorin's Thirst. Wound Reflection great card but not made for this deck.
better land drawMikokoro, Center of the Sea
artifact: Sword of the Animist

This really looks like two separate, decent decks, mushed together into one deck that doesn't really feel like it knows where it's going. It's cool, but picking a lane would likely make this considerably stronger.
If you're mostly trying to lean into the lifegain triggers with beaters like Ajani's Pridemate and lots of little life gain like Soul's Attendant, you're actually aiming for something akin to the old competitive deck Soul Sisters. I'd definitely make a few of the following changes:
-Trade out Bloodbond Vampire for Archangel of Thune. It costs one more mana, but in return you get a creature that already has flying, has lifelink on the creature, and whenever you gain life it buffs every creature you have in play, instead of just itself.
-Trade out your recursion for single use token makers like Spectral Procession. You get more creatures for less mana, meaning more triggers for your new life gain creatures.
Alternatively, if you want to lean more into vampires... well there are a few ways to do it. My main suggestion would be to swap over to mono-black or B/R, but there are also good white vampires now. That particular design space is wide open still.

I'm going to make hella recommendations for cards here. I'm not really sure what your budget is so I'll include cards that fall into the budget and non budget categories (Non budget mostly being a reasonable price, not the most optimal cards that tend to cost a ton of money.)
Mana Base Show
Next is your mana base, you have the Ally Encampments which is good, but I would look into picking up a playset of dual lands to round out the manabase a little more. My go to budget option is: Scoured Barrens
Deck Focus and How Many Copies to Play Show
TLDR: Every deck has themes that it uses to acheive it's goals, a deck can have sub-themes as well. For example, this is a Drain Deck with life gain and ally sub-themes. Almost every card should in some way compliment AT LEAST one of these strategies, Ideally every single card compliments the main theme, and builds upon one of the sub-themes. However, exceptions can be made. The question you have to ask yourself is: Does this card compliment my main theme? If not, is this card strong enough on it's own to warrent weakening my main theme
I'll give you the following advice, but I'll be vague so you can apply the theory yourself. I think that you have too many copies of Ondu Cleric but I don't think you should drop all of them. You should have at most 4 cards that cost 5 Mana. Cards that only serve to gain life are worth running only if they get incredibly powerful.
Cards you should know exist Show

Hello! What do you think about concentrating on life-gain theme? Your commander is really great. So you can add many cards with ETB effects for example: Ajani's Pridemate, Bloodbond Vampire, Defiant Bloodlord,Archangel of Thune,Karlov of the Ghost Council.

SynergyBuild, what do you think of the possible addition of Leonin Warleader? Maybe replacing the Bloodline Keeper Flips? Although that would get rid of the Indulgent Aristocrat/Bloodline Keeper Flip combo of creating a bunch of powerful vampires... However, it would create another avenue for more lifelink to beef up Ajani's Pridemate, Bloodbond Vampire, and Serra Ascendant.
