Ajani's Pridemate could help you add some power to your board.
Radiant Fountain is another lifegain land you could use.
I would also recommend adding some 1-drops to the deck. I know it doesn't seem like much but having something to do on each turn can make your deck much more powerful. For this I would recommend Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant and Ajani's Welcome and Children of Korlis and Genju of the Fields and Goldenglow Moth and Leonin Vanguard and Nip Gwyllion and Pride Guardian and Soulmender .
Hope this helps!

Oh, now I understand why you have some expansive cards like Three Visits ! You play online! Of all the players that I asked if I could search in my sideboard with Mastermind's Acquisition , all said «yes», but I never actually tutored outside a deck's library. I asked to see what kind of players they were and it was also to do some politics (to make them wonder what I'd tutor and «get in their head») lol. I asked a judge for the «layers» and was told those rules are in the section 613 of the comprehensive rules. I went only for the part intriguing us. From what I understood, you do have to check the order of the cards when their continuous effects contradict each other. They call that the «timestamp order», but if 2 layers enter at the same time, «dependancy» is checked. Usually the last effect «wins».
You could add some wheel effects in your game to make it harder for your opponents to find responses once you have set a winning combo. Many are in the chaos list I posted, like Teferi's Puzzle Box .
Since a couple of your cards change life, I would have suggested to add Platinum Emperion , but you wrote that you are avoiding pillowforting in this deck. It could be something to tutor with Living Wish , Death Wish (and regain the life lost with Tainted Sigil or Children of Korlis ) or Mastermind's Acquisition in your sideboard if you're in deep shit? haha

I always say this before building a deck. Draw is the most powerful mechanic in magic Spirits. That's why i have so much, the right amount of tutors + draw give you consistency. The ADD ratio should not bother you as much as long as the ones you are running help you to your wincon. I actually surprised to not see Recruiter of the Guard Imperial Recruiter and Sneak Attack btw.
weezel Life should always be considered a resource in commander, but if its that much of an issue to you Serra Ascendant & Children of Korlis should be looked at as well as Blood Artist which can be looped with to win. I think its a mistake to take out Gamble, its definitely worth unless you do not use your graveyard as much.

Hi friend. I run a version of this deck with Selenia, Dark Angel and have really considered Licia for red.
There is an upcoming combo in this wheelhouse you may be interested in. Start with a Bolas's Citadel in play. Then Cast Doomsday . The cards you will pick (hopefully there are still in you deck) are Aetherflux Reservoir , Children of Korlis , Tainted Sigil , a land, and Beacon of Immortality .
Depending on your life total after halving it you may want more 1 drops than anything. But the plan is to make it so Beacon of Immortality is the only card in your library and you keep casting it off the top. You gain infinite life. Aetherflux Reservoir , Sanguine Bond , or Vizkopa Guildmage finish off your opponents.
I know this is a lot of cards you are not currently running. Just wanted you to have all the tools you might need.

Necropotence and Necrologia because not having unlimited card draw is for those other foolish colors with their rules and their home owners associations, also Children of Korlis since you need at least one child to push off your glorious orzhov lawn and to help pay for that unlimited card draw.

Thanks again all.
Yep, I got it. Been toying with random lifeloss ideas for awhile and discovered Pain's Reward the other night. Just took me awhile to figure out how exactly one would achieve say a million life--thanks! Love Sanguine Bond , but not the mana cost... Vizkopa Guildmage or both maybe for kitchen table madness!
The deck I'm working on atm is very low cost and consists of different wincons. Children of Korlis and Pain's Reward might appear, but would be appearing for different reasons. But hey, if this million life thing were to ever happen in a game, it'd be hilarious. Might have to also make a really fringe deck that abuses all of these intricacies!

Though you seem to have got my meaning already, I'll put this here for clarity:
Even though you "have" 20 life to start, you can lose more than you have. If you bid, say, 120 life and win, you will lose 120 life, going to -100. Sacrificing Children of Korlis will cause you to gain 120 life (since that's how much you lost this turn, barring other effects), going back to 20.
Sacrificing two Children of Korlis would work. Tainted Sigil would have to be combined with something else to get more than 120 (other players would have to lose life for you to go above that amount).
Sanguine Bond sounds like ridiculous fun, and is perfect for the "I lose 5000 life but don't lose because of this card here. Oh, by the way, you're all dead."

@emask Just to add a final point of clarification, because I feel the subject isn't fully cleared. So to recap - you cast Angel's Grace or Phyrexian Unlife and now can't lose the game. Then as you are at 40 life cast Pain's Reward and bid a million life, which resolves and your life goes to minus 999 960 life. Saccing Children of Korlis now will gain you million life and set you back to 40 life, which was your life total before the bid. So the only way to achieve the million life dream is to add additional effect into this equation which is what I originally suggested.
Lets come back to the example - your life total is minus 999 960 life and you cast Oketra's Last Mercy or Resolute Archangel so set your life to back 40 which also gains you a million life, which is important if Sanguine Bond is present. And now finally you sacrifice Children of Korlis , which makes you gain a million more life and make your life total 1 000 040.
P.S. For extra umph activating Tainted Sigil , after you have gained a million life with Children of Korlis and killed someone with Sanguine Bond will net you 2 million life and then make someone lose 2 million life as well. Some might call it overkill, I call it style points ;)
