Dawn of Hope can combo with Fountain of Renewal but Fountain is a meh card. You can use Treasure Map Flip, I personally used to doubt this card but people will literally counter this with a Syncopate which shows how much advantage it gains you. There's also the simple draw spells of Discovery / Dispersal which you already have listed, Revitalize / Ritual of Rejuvenation , and Sword-Point Diplomacy .

In general, my feedback is that you have too many one-shot lifegain effects for small amounts (1-3 life). These don't do enough - you have to have multiple other cards on board before they really help you/hurt others.
Cards to cut:
- Angel of Mercy - Angel of the Dawn - Angel of the God-Pharaoh - Seraph of the Suns - Serra Angel - Urgoros, the Empty One - Vampire Sovereign - Dark Ritual - Healing Grace - Fountain of Renewal - Manalith - Prowler's Helm - Behind the Scenes - Ill-Gotten Inheritance - Trespasser's Curse - Dovin Baan
A few cards to think about adding:
Last, I'll just note that Oloro is already not a beloved commander, and you're playing a lot of counter magic. You might want to think about inserting some W/U pillowfort, cause everyone is going to be coming for you.

Thanks for the comment The_Dark_Adonis,
Yes there is a clear weakness here. If you play Guttersnipe late in the game, when you are re-playing 4 or 5 instants per turn (using the effect of Feather, the Redeemed ), it becomes a very strong card. It does, however, add very little value to the early game. Torch Courier is a strong first turn play that adds nothing later in the game. Skirk Prospector could work as an early chump-blocker, or give you 1 extra red mana - nice, but certainly not a game-changer.
I started this deck with Tajic, Legion's Edge and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice in that slot, but wanted to reduce the mana curve and increase tempo. Another option that I did consider was to replace Guttersnipe with Ajani's Pridemate and try to bring in Moment of Triumph or Fountain of Renewal . That would give you a spread of creatures that collect +1/+1 counters before attacking behind Adamant Will or Sheltering Light . I suppose that the biggest reason that I didn't go down that road is that I wanted to try to keep a balance between and .
There is clearly room for improvements, which will hopefully become clear after a few rounds of play-testing at FNM's, or even in Arena

You should build a full sideboard of 1-off artifacts if you plan to use Karn, the Great Creator and you should sub out some shocks and swamps to play 4 Interplanar Beacon as the only black you run are planeswalkers. A list of sideboard artifacts are as follows Arcane Encyclopedia – card draw for control, Explosive Apparatus – Bad removal, Navigator's Compass – life gain, Damping Sphere – Anti Izzet phoenix, Fountain of Renewal – Burn, Sorcerous Spyglass – Walkers, Helm of the Host – maybe ok? Magistrate's Scepter – control beater, Meteor Golem – good but expensive removal, Orazca Relic – versatile, Sentinel Totem – graveyard hate, Silent Gravestone – graveyard hate, Skyscanner – replaceable blocker, The Immortal Sun – win-con, Transmogrifying Wand – repeatable removal, Treasure Map Flip card advantage. Please look at and comment my deck when you have time.

Working on a similar theme, I came up with a / version of this deck (W L G) that seems to work quite well. Gideon's Company would work well in your deck, then to hit your life-link triggers, Fountain of Renewal might add value.
