Cool deck! But there is something you should know; Divinity of Pride is illegal on mono white commander decks since it has black hybrid symbols in his cost, even though you can just spend white on it.

Vault of the Archangel would be a good add if you plan to go wide. For planeswalkers, the B/W Sorins are usually a good fit for token decks, just pick what you feel is fit. Additional sac engines are usually good for Teysa such as Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar it gives you free sacs with mana which just snowballs out of control especially with a skullclamp or a pitiless plunderer out. If you want further removal, Dictate of Erebos is a must for a deck like this. Martyr's Bond is a bit expensive to cast but has an overall better effect. If you really want to focus on "death" triggers, add more zulaport-like cards such as Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble, Vindictive Vampire. Divinity of Pride seems out of place and doesn't really do the deck any good. You're deck will be too slow and inconsistent you need to up your mana rocks to around 8-12 to ensure to at least draw it in your opening hand or to at least have two in the early game asap to get you going. I also see no early draw engine or draw cards so maybe you could try cards such as Altar's Reap for cheap draw and sac trigger in one.

Don't know why it didn't catch this but I'm pretty sure Privileged Position counts as green too, and Divinity of Pride also counts as black, and therefor can't be in this deck. Other than that looks like a fun deck

In terms of competitive play Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista is considered the strongest life-gain combo (its a bit on the expensive side though). As seen here https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/im-walking-on-sunshine/ For your win condition Vizkopa Guildmage can situationally be cheaper than Sanguine Bond.
While there isn't much combat in competitive EDH, the 2 creatures that stick out to me are Serra Ascendant and Tymna the Weaver. Building on their styles of life-gain Serra Ascendant could easily be parred with Divinity of Pride, Resplendent Angel and Felidar Sovereign. Tymna the Weaver is an incredibly oppressive draw engine that synergizes with token-esk strategies. In modern, there is a fringe deck generally referred to as Soul Sisters that uses Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant in conjunction with small creatures to generate life gain triggers. With this, you can draw cards with Mentor of the Meek, Skullclamp, Dawn of Hope and Alhammarret's Archive. Other notable synergies include: Ajani's Pridemate, Angel of Vitality and Archangel of Thune.
Here are some recourses I use to build decks:

Board wipes that seem "on theme" and white "ramp" to consider. Kaya's Wrath Fumigate Retaliate Austere Command Decree of Pain Martial Coup Merciless Eviction Descent of Dragons Angel of the Dire Hour Magister of Worth Sunblast Angel Boreas Charger Oreskos Explorer Surveyor's Scope Solemn Simulacrum Sword of the Animist Verge Rangers Smothering Tithe Sword of Feast and Famine Dowsing Dagger Flip
Queen Marchesa doesn't have a clear single way to build so you have lots of options. However, I feel like said you want to play her like the Kween she is and create a royal court full of politicin' and group interaction to make all the boys whine. I don't think you want to discourgage people from taking the monarch from you, more encourage them to swing others IE: NO Ghostly Prisons, YES Teysa effects. Punish the ones who swing you only after the fact and reward the ones who swing others. There is a lot listed!
You will also want to get retake the throne each turn and lets face it, the Assasin's won't always get through Dauthi Embrace Dauthi Trapper Nether Shadow Nether Traitor Soltari Visionary Changeling Outcast Tormented Soul Break Through the Line Ferropede Gingerbrute Key to the City Whispersilk Cloak Trailblazer's Boots Zhang He, Wei General Yellow Scarves Cavalry Wei Night Raiders Wei Scout Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior Shadow Alley Denizen

Here's what I've decided/sacrificed out for now:
Deathgreeter - Already have blood artist added, decided to cut for now
Divinity of Pride - Left it out as I added Serra & Walking Ballista, also very high CMC
Generous Gift - Better removals in the deck, so did not add
Necropotence - Pure $ call, deck is already getting up there
Extort Cards (i.e. Thrull Parasite, Basilica Screecher, Tithe Drinker) - I want to keep these for now as I like having that as an additional source of LG, especially because I've added more low CMC in this update
Spirit Loop - I think too much value and makes Karlov too scary, the return to hand is delicious.
Swords to Plowshares - Left this out purely to make sure I have enough mana.
I think now what I am gonna do is play test this a LOT to see if it balances well before I cough up the $
P.S. Guys - I can't thank you enough. This has been such a cool experience. You guys have put so much effort into this.
If you'd like to catch a remote game, I have been playing games on the PlayEDH server on Discord, my username is RageRoo182#8105, feel free to add me if you'd like to play a game!

So LordBlackblade - in summary:
- How do I remove those 5 remaining lands and what should come in their stead?
- Some potential cuts include Ranger of Eos / Night's Whisper / Hedron Archive / Solemn Simulacrum
- I REALLY want to get Syphon Mind in this deck
Also: There is a myriad of creatures I need to find ways of adding:
Protection Bois - Mother of Runes
If you were me, what would you do? :D

And it looks like spoilers don't work in comments, at least not for me! So much for keeping things neat. Anyway, here's what I wanted to say:
Esper Panorama - Seems unnecessary in a two color deck. If you build it right, color fixing should never be a problem
Geier Reach Sanitarium - You have access to better card draw effects in black
Kabira Crossroads - One time life gain doesn't make up for coming in tapped
Memorial to Folly - This one is just okay. The effect is alright, probably not worth losing a land for in my opinion
Orzhov Guildgate - I personally avoid tap lands like the plague, they slow you down to much in my opinion
Radiant Fountain - One time life gain doesn't make up for this not producing colored mana
- Curse of Fool's Wisdom - This really screws over one opponent, but what you should be shooting for is stuff that does "splash damage" so to speak, remember, you will usually have three or more opponents in a game.
Armillary Sphere - This one is just okay. Ensures you hit land drops, but doesn't boost you
Bontu's Monument - I don't feel like you're running enough creatures for this effect to pay off
Fountain of Renewal - "On your upkeep" effects seem really powerful, but on a multiplayer format, your upkeep happens less often relatively speaking. It's not terrible for the cost, but I'm sure we can do better
- Final Parting - I don't think you have enough graveyard interaction to make this better than other tutors
Ranger of Eos - This can only snag four of your creatures. Granted those creatures are pretty good for your strategey, but I personally don't think it is worth it
Murder - There are definitely better kill spells we can find
Ray of Distortion - Not bad, you're definitely getting that choice is key in EDH; however, I think there are a couple better options to choose from
Sun Droplet - This card is a sleeper! Not that it says each upkeep, helping you stack those sweet, sweet Karlov triggers
Talisman of Hierarchy - I love the talismans. Great rocks in any multicolor EDH deck in my opinion
Read the Bones - One of my favorite black draw spells. Card selection plus draw is generally very powerful
Syphon Mind - A critically underplayed draw spell in my opinion. Puts you up quite a few cards on each opponent
Blood Artist - This guy does work in so many situations. Usually an auto-target in most metas, that just goes to show how powerful the effect is
- Return to Dust - Gives you options and can snag two cards for one. Considered a staple in some circles
(I've been on this site a long time and I still haven't figured out the quirks of coding on here all that well!)
