Prevent all damage target spell would deal this turn. You gain life equal to the damage prevented this way.

To answer the question, shinobigarth has it right. Hallow will prevent all of the damage that Star of Extinction would have done, to anything. So for each creature and each planeswalker than Star of Extinction would have dealt 20 damage to, you will gain 20 life. If there are 5 creatures on the battlefield and zero planeswalkers, you will gain 100 life.

Okay so I'm going to go through these from least to most obstructive to the deck
Option C: Retire the deck, this would require no edits so the deck isn't technically changing, if you did this (please don't by the way) your meta is fast so you would want to play either an agro deck or burn to keep up and give you the best chance of success.
Option A: Adding green could do a lot for the deck and it would retain the enchantment focus however adding green would make the mana base significantly more expensive, more on that to come. The inclusion of green would most notably give access to Utopia Sprawl and Eidolon of Blossoms. The former would accelerate the deck and provide it with a way to keep up with faster decks, the later would provide a card draw engine. If you went this route I would drop Gideon's Intervention and Wall of Omens to make room for the new additions. The biggest change here however would be the mana base, you would need to have a fetch/shock setup 4x Flooded Strand, 4x Windswept Heath, 1-2 Misty Rainforest and then 2-3 Temple Garden, 3-4 Hallowed Fountain, and 1-2 Breeding Pool, 1x Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, Razorverge Thicket, maybe Minamo, School at Water's Edge, and you probably also want 4 Ghost Quarter in there. If you go this route I'll draft an example mana base so you can get a better idea.
Option B: The deck would basically be a whole new deck if you went this route, it would probably be built around Thing in the Ice Flip, with cantrips such as Serum Visions, as well as a collection of prevent damage spells including Holy Day, Ethereal Haze, Angelsong, Riot Control, Hallow and Luminesce in the side, and most importantly Isochron Scepter to get repeated use out of the prevent damage spells. Again green could be added here but this deck would have a low curve so Fog isn't necessary. The core prison pieces would stay Ghostly Prison, Luminarch Ascension, Nevermore, Runed Halo, Detention Sphere, Path to Exile but just about everything else would be cut or be in serious consideration of being cut. This concept is something I haven't really seen before so I can't attest to its power but it seems like it could be good with the power of Thing in the Ice Flip (this deck would also likely run some counters like Remand).
I would personally go with A or B because I think the deck could work but if you chose to retire it I'm more than happy to help you find a new deck, just I feel this deck is almost there.

Maybe Hallow would be worth considering for noncreature decks like burn?
I think Ethereal Haze is your best fog. Properly timed, it can stop a creature from killing you in a noncombat way. You should get 4 of those.
Do you have enough card draw to make a Venser's Journal worthwhile? A one-of Retaliate might be worth a few laughs, since they're probably going to be swinging all in against you every turn; skip the fog for one turn, and instant wrath them.

I recommend Swan Song, Oblivion Ring, Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Condemn, Ethereal Haze, Holy Day, Hallow, Comeuppance, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Pithing Needle, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Teferi's Moat, Azor's Elocutors, and Reverence.

Hallow would be fun with it, even though its useless in most other cases i guess

How about splashing white for Pay No Heed effects? Hallow, COP: Red, Personal Sanctuary..... you could cut the emperions to just the Colossus. Might be more consistent. Especially Hallow, that's the best one by far.
