How about Divinity of Pride? With all the life linking stuff you shave here, he should be an 8/8 flying life linked most of the time, for only 5 mana. I’ve seen a couple decks built around the mimics (there’s a cycle of those, one in each enemy color pair) and the hatchlings (another cycle) and lieges (another cycle, enemies and allies) and stuff. This is one of the better ones in WB.

So, I would definitely work in Palace Siege, Phyrexian Reclamation, and Dawn of the Dead. Being able to recure your creatures is going to be really helpful with Ayli.
These are some creatures I run in my deck: Wall of Reverence, Divinity of Pride, Wurmcoil Engine, Archangel of Thune, and Rhox Faithmender. Some of them are pricey and may not fit exactly what your going for, but Divinity of Pride is pretty solid.
I run Proper Burial for value on sac triggers. I also like Riot Control, I have a lot of tokens in my meta so the creature count can get crazy, but depending on what decks you play this may not be a good fit.

Thank you for the input.
I see your point with Ranger of Eos but lately he has been useful in like 3 games in a row hehe, so that sometimes makes you misjudge the real value of a card.
And what about Kokusho? I have several sac outlets but not that much reanimation but I'm guessing he could work as a beater too. I'm thinking about Divinity of Pride as well.

Apothecary Initiate, Serene Steward, Soulmender and Cradle of Vitality all have issues, mostly that the effect costs mana or requires you to tap a creature. The most common life gain deck in Modern is Soul Sisters, named so for Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant. If your wanting to avoid that route then maybe a more aggro focused list with Lone Rider Flip and Ajani, Caller of the Pride.
You might also want to consider Awe Strike, Kabira Crossroads and Authority of the Consuls. Another option is you look at a mechanic like Extort, see Blind Obedience as an example. Or look at alternative (but based on life gain) win conditions like Chalice of Life Flip, Aetherflux Reservoir, Felidar Sovereign or finally Divinity of Pride.
Whatever you decide, I hope this helps and have fun brewing your deck.

Entiendo que ests tratando de traer grandes criaturas al campo, pero Divinity of Pride es demasiado lenta. parece que tienes muchas criaturas que funcionarn mejor. Cambiara Divinity of Pride por Path to Exile o Dismember si pasar 4 vidas no te preocupa. No he tomado una clase de espaol en 4 aos por favor perdname si esto sali terriblemente.

lets start off with just plain out good cards:
-Karlov of the Ghost Council this guy offers some massive creature control and gets real big real fast.
-Divinity of Pride he is just so good with the life gain you have, a 5 mana 8/8 flyer lifelink is pretty good.
Cliffhaven Vampire now if anyone casts a spell everyone loses life, except you of course.
Aetherflux Reservoir... yeah.... yep, they are dead... nice.
Blood Baron of Vizkopajust another divinity of pride
Exquisite Blood double the dmg.
Erebos, God of the Dead stop all enemy's from gaining life and a drawing outlet.
Painful Quandary make them think twice before they cast spell.
Sanguine Bond goes infinite with exquisite blood and double the life.
okay, I'm out of cards.now, It seems to me that you also have this aristocrats tokens thing going on and I don't know which one you want to go into more. though, this deck, or should I say commander, is more for a control deck, not aristocrats, or tokens. If you want to go more aristocrats, than Athreos, God of Passage and the guys commander mentioned before me are both good options. if you want more tokens, aristocrats and life gain, then Elenda, the Dusk Rose has all three in some way or another. Those are all just suggestions for you to think about, good luck!

Nice deck! I've been thinking about building Karlov and I had a couple questions about your top end choices. Personally I'm not big on cards like Baneslayer Angel and Divinity of Pride that are just big blocks of stats; how have they worked out for you? I'm also concerned Pontiff of Blight, Righteous Confluence, and Sorin Markov wouldn't give you your mana's worth. Have they performed well for you?
I have a couple cards not in your list I'm thinking about and I'd be curious to hear your opinion of them. I'm a big fan of Weathered Wayfarer in any white deck without green. Defiant Bloodlord, Rhox Faithmender and Wall of Reverence all seem like natural fits in Orzhov lifegain strategies. I recommend Ashes of the Abhorrent as dual purpose graveyard hate and extra lifegain triggers, and speaking of lifegain triggers this may be a good home for Curse of Vitality. Finally as a different top end threat I think True Conviction is really powerful here.
I saw you are trying to avoid infinite combos and chose only the Sanguine Bond half of the lifedrain combo. Has that worked out for you or have you considered swapping for the Exquisite Blood half instead? Also, if you're already playing Sanguine Bond I don't think Vizkopa Guildmage would create any infinite combos it wouldn't as well.
