Looks like your land-base could use more W sources and fewer B sources.
I think you can go down to 36 or 34 lands, bring in some utility lands (like High Market), fetches, shocks, and other kinds of dual lands and still be okay.
With the spaces you have left, think of other utility creatures, perhaps. Razaketh, the Foulblooded, for example, would make good use of your extra life as a tutor. Ghost Council of Orzhova and Obzedat, Ghost Council come to mind, as well.
Greed would be a good card-draw enchantment given your life-gain.
Bring some mana rocks into your artifact pool (like Orzhov Signet), a few board wipes into your sorceries, some spot removal (especially exile effects) into your instants, and maybe a synergistic planeswalker or two, like Elspeth Tirel or Sorin, Grim Nemesis.

cut Wall of Omens, Wall of Reverence, Archangel Avacyn Flip, Whip of Erebos, Archetype of Courage, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Orzhov Signet, Akroma's Memorial, Congregate, Odric, Master Tactician and Crystal Ball. Then choose a subtheme, walkers or lifegain. For walkers add 2x Oath of Gideon, Oath of Liliana, 2x Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, 2x Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Elspeth Tirel and 4x Fumigate. Alternatively go pseudo soul sisters, adding 3x Soul's Attendant, 3x Archangel of Thune, 3x Soul Warden, 2x Lingering Souls and maybe Auriok Champion

I love this combination of commanders. Nice list!
Greed might be good for card draw since you gain so much life, as well.

I'm looking for advice on the last white rare slot in my cube. Currently I have Elspeth Tirel there as a placeholder. Idk if she is the best option, but she ended up going in after testing Stoneforge Mystic with little success.
My cube is limited to Zendikar block through Return to Ravnica block and M11 block through M14 block. The cards currently in my white section are...
- Baneslayer Angel
- Blade Splicer
- Day of Judgment
- Gideon Jura
- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
- Hero of Bladehold
- Restoration Angel
- Sublime Archangel
After looking up cards in the aforementioned sets I found that the other options didn't seem too promising, but hopefully I am just missing something. I know it may be difficult to give advice without playing my cube, however I am hoping prior experience with the suggested card will compensate.

Okie dokie! So, heres What Id recommend:
Mana. Your land base is fine, though 38 is a little much for a creature heavy deck, since you want cheap and fast dudes. Id say cut one of each basic land, Horn of Greed, and Thaumatic Compass Flipfor the three signets in these colors, Sol Ring and Hedron Archive. Dont forget sad robot, Solemn Simulacrum!
Board wipes! Instead of Release the Gremlins, Vandalblast is a bunch better. You dont have to spend as much for basically the same effect, minus the tokens. Wrath of God can replace Death Grasp, and Wear / Tear is better than Hide/Seek.Mortify And Boros Charm would also work great. Finally, instead of Profound Journey, Living Death is great - a wipe + instant advantage if a lot of your cards are in the grave.
Tutors and planeswalkers!Instead of Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Sun's Champion makes tokens AND can wrath, plus a buff as an ultimate. Always awesome. Sorin, Grim Nemesis is a bit costly, but can also work as a Dark confidant, for opponents LP instead. You DO need more tutors, as I noticed. Increasing Ambition is a pet card of mine, and Diabolic Tutor is a classic. Even Faithless Looting can give you some cheap card advantage early on. What you could replace for those is up to you, though, if anything.
Combos and jank creatures!One card you should throw in is Ashnod's Altar - getting rid of cheap tokens for mana ad damage is one thing, but if you add a can like Banisher Priest and sacrifice it upon entering, the thing you Target will be permanently exiled. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death would be another cool addition for graveyard shenanigans, and by default, her pal Master of Cruelties would come out to play. Then theres the big girls: Aurelia, the Warleader and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight are just awesome. Hero of Bladehold and Hero of Oxid Ridge are great because of their attacking abilities, and Iroas, God of Victory always ensures protection. While were on gods, Purphoros, God of the Forge + a frequently forgotten card, Assemble the Legion, lets you slowly gain an advantage. Or, just go with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscriptsfor a short and sweet win. Just in case, theres always Panharmonicon for all your jank ETB needs.
Phew...I THINK thats everything off the top of my head! Lol

I run a token deck myself, and I use Boon Reflection in conjunction with Cradle of Vitality because it allows you to ramp up creatures to insane levels, especially with the amount of passive life gain. But you can also use it with Angelic Accord to ensure you hit 4 life gained per turn to get a 4/4 angel token.
That and with how insane it is with Elspeth Tirel means that you actually have enough lifegain in the deck to make Boon Reflection work. Especially if you're using something that gives all creatures lifelink, OR you can use it to double the amount of cards you draw with Well of Lost Dreams
