They're not exactly fling effects, but Dying Wish & Essence Harvest could do things for you. You'd need a way to sac/kill the creature for the aura, but the other doesn't require losing the creature.

APPLE01DOJ on Is mono-black viable. What do ...

Dying Wish attached to Desecration Demon or Fling effects. I think there is a black card that does this.

CyborgNate on Black\White Lifelink Deck

I've been playing for a few years now (though casually and never in tournament), and I used this model as a basis a deck I built recently. I did make a few changes, however, since I'm cheap and didn't want to dish out over $80 for Magic cards. Here's what I did:

Removed: 1 Avacyn, Angel of Hope, 2 Obzedat, Ghost Council, 3 Sin Collector, 2 Tithe Drinker, 2 Vampire Nighthawk, 4 Sign in Blood, 1 Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, 3 Elixir of Immortality, 2 Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, 1 Murder, 2 Plains, 2 Swamp, 2 Dying Wish

I took these out to either help reduce cost, or to focus the deck a little more. I'm still considering putting Sorin, Lord of Innistrad in it, at least one, but I haven't yet. If you kept the Elixir of Immortality, it'd probably still be a good help. In fact, most of the cards I took out would still be helpful, I just swapped them for my own tastes. I think you'd be best off leaving out the Sign in Blood though. It doesn't seem like it would really be that useful.

Added: 1 Exquisite Blood, 1 Sanguine Bond, 2 Wall of Limbs, 2 Noble Purpose, 2 Path of Bravery, 1 Chalice of Life  Flip, 4 Orzhov Basilica, 2 Knight of the Holy Nimbus, 2 Nantuko Shade, 4 Ajani's Pridemate, 2 Suture Priest, 2 Gift of Orzhova, 2 Angelic Skirmisher

These changes have been working out pretty well for me so far. Ajani's Pridemate is a relatively cheap card that is extremely powerful in any life gain deck. I threw in Wall of Limbs because I like defenders and their sacrifice ability can make a good endgame if you're struggling. Most of these other ones just give more life gain and lifelink to everything. Knight of the Holy Nimbus and Nantuko Shade were thrown in as good side creatures. Those wouldn't necessarily need to be there.

You made a good deck here. I hope my own thoughts and adjustments help out.

This is the list of cards I would suggest. Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Spire Tracer, Dying Wish, Alpha Authority, Dark Confidant, & Forced Adaptation.

These are recommendations for going the aggro enchant route. update and let me know where you are trying to go. Explain your thinking on cards that way we have an idea of how to help.

TheSurgeon on Why are you hitting yourself?

I have a deck similar to this (not posted yet) I run Perilous Myrs instead of Infectious Hosts. It gives you an option to do 2 damage to c/p and only costs 2.
Also, Mortis Dogs might be a nice addition especially with Dying Wish.
Please check out some of my decks here. For more ideas.

Doomed Traveler, Path to Exile, Murder Investigation, Dying Wish and for a better sac outlet look into Bloodthrone Vampire because you can feed your tokens into it then sac themselves to themselves for a really nasty Dying Wish or a ton of tokens with Murder Investigation as well as a huge mill from Altar of Dementia
