Nice options! I wrote a primer for my version recently, maybe you can give it a look as well

Gotta say I love the variation in yours in comparison, made me think about a few things.
Also, I highly recommend running a Gift of Immortality, can’t tell you how many times it’s saved my ass.

I have made cleric deck my self with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim as the original commander but generally found Ravos and Tymna better due to card draw. That said there are some recommendations I have found from personal experience with Ayli you may find helpful. I generally found I had two main issues with the deck and it was gaining enough life quickly to bring Ayli online and then having enough bodies to act as fodder for said ability. With that in mind I will try and make suggestions that generally forward those causes.
Lifeline, I cant recommend this enough it does EVERYTHING your commander wants, while it may allow for opponents to benefit at first, reaching the magical 50 life exile enabler for your commander is easy then you can start exiling the problems. As an added note you can use things like Fiend Hunter or Containment Priest to keep your opponents from taking advantage of it, just sac Containment Priest in response to the Lifeline triggers to prevent your self from getting hosed.
I assume your exclusion of Exquisite Blood with Sanguine Bond in the deck is intentional, if its not I would add it as its a win combo. If you choose to not add in Exquisite Blood then Beacon of Immortality can be quite funny when added to Sanguine Bond.
Remorseful Cleric Excellent graveyard removal and in tribe.
Conspiracy should be added to go with Rotlung Reanimator as all your creatures become clerics including tokens. This means you can sac tokens to make more tokens, in short its one of the holy grail's your commander wants for sacrificial fodder.
Skirsdag High Priest, sacrifice something make a 5/5 flyer once a turn seems helpful.

SynergyBuild, that's perfect. Thank you! I don't know how I missed that land in my searches.
The white counter spells weren't for a quasi removal as much as they were for protecting my setup, especially when it's all getting activated. Gift of Immortality is also there both to protect Ob Nixilis, Unshackled or bring Fertilid back after I use him up. Do you think these are wasted card slots?
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen would be a fantastic add! Not just on flavour, but he'd work with the The Gitrog Monster/Crucible of Worlds package. I could use another "play an extra land" card, perhaps. Now that you mentioned more demons, I have a Rune-Scarred Demon which is one of my favourite combos with Pattern of Rebirth. If I have Ob Nixilis already and Fertilid already in play, he could be a great third option to bring in so I can find another key card.
I do like the idea of a another win-con. I appreciate diverse gameplay. While the instant win cards aren't as enjoyed in our format, Liliana's Contract could work and I'm going to start giving other options some serious thought.

I would fix your mana base first. Average EDH decks have 45 mana sources, and Tiana definitely needs it, so consider more lands or rocks like Gilded Lotus/Boros Cluestone/Commander's Sphere/Fire Diamond/Marble Diamond etc etc. Fiery Mantle/Dragon Breath could replace Mark of Fury/Goblin War Paint? Guise of Fire/Bonds of Faith/Prophetic Ravings could replace Bloodshed Fever/Hammerhand/Cartouche of Zeal? Graceblade Artisan is a great duplicate of Champion of the Flame, it could replace Favored Hoplite/Call To Serve. If you want more combat map control you could run Goblin Spymaster/Overwhelming Splendor. Immolation/Inferno Fist are good duplicates of Ordeal of Purphoros.
Other than these replacements, I think you made a fine deck. I would include more finishers like Shiv's Embrace/Splinter Twin/Elemental Mastery/Burning Anger/Battle Mastery, or include a combo with Battered Golem/Paradox Engine/Endbringer/Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. I think some weaker finishers in this deck right now are Giant Spectacle/Lightning Reflexes/Madcap Skills/Lightning Talons. And I think Gift of Immortality is alright, but it doesn't protect your auras in extension if a creature-only board wipe happens, so another indestructible spells would be better.
I like the neat combo of Pariah and Tiana, and your enchantment based draw engines + Auratog/Faith Healer is another neat combo. Curse of Opulence is a great include, it's a one drop that adds influences damage away from you and toward your 120 combined life goal. Umbra Mystic/Anax and Cymede/Heavenly Blademaster are also great includes!

Oh this is a fun one! What is your goal with this deck? Spit out tokens and make them big? The only thing you have to worry about with her on the field are mass destruction and mass sac effects like Dictate of Erebos. I would consider Eldrazi Monument, Mother of Runes, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant,Hero of Bladehold, Crystalline Crawler, Hangarback Walker, Mindless Automaton, Bloodspore Thrinax, Bramblewood Paragon, Hardened Scales, Curse of Predation, Gyre Sage, Walking Ballista, Cradle of Vitality and maybe Oreskos Explorer, Sun Titan, Gift of Immortality, Sunbond, and Prowling Serpopard. Sorry, I felt like maybe I was listing abit I don't want you to feel like I'm trying to build your deck. I know it can take the joy out of building for some people :) Anyway, good job so far and happy tuning!

Okay so I have two different decks that might help you. If you want me, once again, to go more in-depth, I certainly will and I would be happy to recommend specific additions. I'll actually be recommending specific cuts right here.
Ajani, Caller of the Pride is not very good. It's suuuper slow and while it does put counters on things, its mana is weird and frankly you're not gonna be casting it on turn 3. It's totally not worth casting after turn 3 and barely worth casting on.
Cathars' Crusade is probably not worth it, especially for the few creatures you're casting AFTER turn 5.
Gyre Sage is so suboptimal, like you're really not putting that mant counters on it early-game, and in the late game it does almost nothing.
You're gonna cast Predator Ooze on like turn 5 or 6. Not. Worth. It.
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is not very good. It's just a mana dork, and yeah eventually it's big mana, but like Gyre Sage, you'll just play your hand and then you're living on topdecks the rest of the game.
Skullbriar, the Walking Grave isn't that good. He'd normally be useful if you were bringing him back from the graveyard, but you're... not.
Octopus Umbra is a decent card but it's not the best in this deck. Not only could you use it better elsewhere, but there are better cards you could put in its place here.
Ghoulcaller Gisa is, once again, not bad here, but there are just better cards- ESPECIALLY in the 5-drop slot!
Bear Umbra is another really good card, but really it could be used better in other places and better things could be put in its place here.
Gift of Immortality is weak in general, and even worse here.
Your entire grave recursion package is kinda shoehorned in and would be better in its own deck. Maybe build Muldrotha, the Gravetide?
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is meh, and here it's a genuinely confusing addition. It's a fine card but it's just not a good addition here.
Deathbringer Regent is fine I guess, but once again, this deck is just not the place for it.
So once again, if you want me to drop some specific cards to replace my suggested cuts, I will certainly go into more detail. But for now, happy brewing and have some deck links!
