First of all, I like your idea of gaining life in tandem with card draw. Life for the sake of life buys time, but that is about it.
Second, your mana curve is not bad either (and congrats on keeping it 60 cards!). You have a rough equivalency of white and blue cards paired with a rough equivalency of land.
That being said, I see a lot of cards of which you only have one copy. There is a value in being flexible, but you also must have a pretty solid strategy. Gaining life and drawing cards is great, but you have to have something to do with it. So, I would cut some of the cards with one copy (consider how often they actually come up in your games). Put 4 copies of a card (1 drawn about every 15 cards) that you want to see each and every game, 2 copies of cards you want most games, and 1 copy of cards that give you a good benefit even if the opponent destroys it the next turn (although counterspells help that a little). If there is a one-copy card you just cant convince yourself to get rid of, put it in your sideboard and try it out for a few games.
I would cut (blank) for the following reasons:
Evolving wilds: You generally don't need that in a 2 color deck, you'd rather have an untapped land. Pristine Talisman: Unless you can get 2 or 4 copies in your deck, if not, sideboard it. Felidar Cub: sideboard it and replace it with another Erase. Djeru's Renunciation: Replace with a "Bounce" Spell like Boomerang. Works offensively and defensively
As far as card suggestions go, pick your poison.... More: Mana Leak, Rune Snag, Reliquary Tower Some: Divinity of Pride, Soul Warden, Suture Priest, Angelic Accord, Tranquil Cove, Dictate of Kruphix, Blue Sun's Zenith, Rapid Hybridization, Spellbook, Whispersilk Cloak, Aqueous Form
TL;DR Don't build the deck too "flat" by having only one copy of essential cards, sideboard what you cant cut, and add some of these low-cost options to the deck. Remember: a lean deck is a successful deck. You can also get some good benefits from Scroll Thief if you can give it lifelink. Paired with Aqueous Form, you get a good glimpse of your top card before you draw it. Mana flooded? Scry it away! Mana thirsty? Scry away the high cost spell you would draw!

As for the post you made:
Really should have a split of em (fatty/recurable), they kinda serve different purposes. Someone might give you a better number but ~3 recurable creatures seems like enough, it really depends how consistently you get over 50 life in your games.

The 4 spirit avatars are probably worth mentioning too, if hybrid mana still counts as mono-black. Deity of Scars, Ghastlord of Fugue, Demigod of Revenge, and Divinity of Pride. Excellent if you're trying to get heavy black devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Demigod in particular is brutal.

A friend of mine built a god deck and was having trouble with devotion so he included some of the following and they really helped.
He only runs 3 or 4 of them but most of them are interesting options to run. Fist of Suns is also really nice in his deck.

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.
