Curse of Vitality Discussion

Some curses are better than others. I'd cut Curse of Vitality for sure, it won't really influence other people that much. Curse of Shallow Graves is pretty situational as well, and Curse of the Bloody Tome can actually help the opponent.
Navigator's Ruin i'd only run if you really want to mill, and Kaya's Ghostform won't often help as much as you like. I really don't see what Shield of the Realm wants to do here, nor Strider Harness .
I'd cut the guild lockets and replace them with the signets.
For some cards to add, i'd recommend at least looking at Bident of Thassa for card draw, Sigil of the Empty Throne , Etchings of the Chosen , Smothering Tithe , Intangible Virtue , Divine Visitation , Etherium Sculptor , Magus of the Moat , and Sphere of Safety
I can come up with some more suggestions if you like, these are just off the top of my head

Also, my planeswalker has a fun combo with Retraction Helix . Infinite untaps, but your opponent gets infinite untaps as well, so kinda risky.

-- Divine Intervention - replace with a full wipe, rather than something that lets your opponent keep their best creature.
-- Leonin Arbiter - with the amount of searching you do, I'd re-think the search denial, as it hinders your own searching for lands too.
-- Jedit Ojanen of Efrava is just... not the greatest. He's pretty lackluster.
-- Curse of Vitality is very minor lifegain.
You have an awful lot of slow lands, that come in tapped. Canopy Vista is pretty much strictly better than a Guildgate.
Soul's Majesty should be replaced with Rishkar's Expertise - it's one mana more, but can't be countered by killing the target, and it lets you cast something in your hand (even if it's not one of the things you drew).
I find Hunter's Prowess is outclassed by its uncommon counterpart, Hunter's Insight - it lacks the +3/+3, but the instant speed means you can just choose any unblocked creature, your opponents not getting the ability to block the target more to deny you cards. Also, it's 2 mana cheaper.
I'd try to find a slot for Rancor - it's a recurring way to grant trample, and +2/0 for one mana is sweet.
Lightning Greaves has screwed you over so many times in our games. Consider Swiftfoot Boots instead? The two differences are it costs mana to equip, at the trade-off of you can still target the creature later on without opening a vulnerability window with re-equip/etc, or locking you out of targeting it if it's your only creature.

In my Marchesa deck i like to run the curses ( Curse of Opulence , Curse of Vitality and Curse of Disturbance ) and Rite of the Raging Storm to spread hate among my opponents. Not the best cards around but if you just want to have some fun i reccomend them.

Okay, I see now.
If that's the case, then I would start with Sphere of Safety and adding more enchantments to bolster the pillow-fort plan. Blind Obedience , Authority of the Consuls , Darksteel Mutation , Grasp of Fate , Citadel Siege , Prison Term , Curse of Vitality , Martyr's Bond , Gideon's Intervention , Oath of Lieges , Martial Law , are Exclusion Ritual are all good. Norn's Annex is a "yes," from me, dawg. Baird, Steward of Argive , Orzhov Advokist , Peacekeeper , Windborn Muse , and Glacial Chasm , might be decent, as well.
You'll probably want to go up to at least 37, if not 38 lands, since it sounds like you don't want to be missing land drops.

So from what im getting this seems to be forming around multiple instances of gaining life, which then proc's OTB effects. With that in mind I have a few suggestions:
