At the beginning of your upkeep, you gain X life, where X is the number of cards in your hand minus four.

Your deck can't run Akoum Refuge, Bloodfell Caves, Dismal Backwater, Jungle Hollow, Jwar Isle Refuge, and Scoured Barrens, because they all have mana symbols outside of your commander's color identity. Color identity also applies to mana symbols in the card description as well.
If you really are set on lots of life-gain for cheap I'd recommend Ivory Tower and Bloodchief Ascension since having a hand of 50 lands is 45+ life gain with Ivory Tower and your commander already puts quest counters on bloodchief ascension since it forces your opponents to lose life per upkeep.

I got a hold of 3 Thoughtseize's so in place of the forth one I put Ivory Tower, which I feel has good synergy with this deck. This deck is almost legacy legal which in that case just take out Necropotence and put in Phyrexian Arena or something similar. The deck is pretty competitive with the exception of obvious better replacements being Go for the Throat or Vindicate instead of Ultimate Price and a better mana base but I feel I did the best I could for my budget.

saw your deck on commander thread, cool deck! looks fun to pilot. really unusual to see someone go for lantern/control in the 100 card singleton format. here are some quick comments;
i used to play Telepathy but i just realized politically it made me enemy number one.
most people apply a disproportionate amount of hate/removal towards cards that give other players control of their cards (relative to the impact that it can have on their own boards).
because of this you might want the ability to flash in your general at an end step, so you're most likely to get an upkeep trigger. cards like Flash, Vedalken Orrery, Leyline of Anticipation, Winding Canyons will allow you to do this.
another thought about Zur's Weirding - this card can be a powerful lock if you have the best boardstate and enough life. consider some sort of Necropotence/Venser's Journal/Ivory Tower situation to have enough life/power to lock out a table of four with zur's weirding. otherwise, if you play it while someone else is ahead you might throw them the game.
finally if you want to go in on mill, some mill cards that come to mind are Keening Stone and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. and you might want to consider packing some graveyard hate because some people have enough graveyard recursion/value that mill helps them out - Bojuka Bog and Relic of Progenitus are decent.

Some things you could cut:Chalice of Life Flip it hits only one opponent and 5 damge isn't taht much if you have to deal 120 in total.Ivory Tower it just gains you maybe(!) another 3 Life a turn and nothing more.Isperia, Supreme Judge I'm not sure if it's a meta call but if you want the just the card draw try Rhystic Study and/or Mystic Remora.Crawlspace If it's a meta call fine otherwise it's just not good.Dimir Cluestone maybe witch it for a Thran Dynamo if you're on a tight budget otherwise try to include all the fast mana you can. ;)Also try to finde a home for Vizkopa Guildmage
Landbase:I really dont like the cyclelands if you dont run crusible you should cut them and just play basics also you will rarly activate Windbrisk Heights so the exiled card will 99% of the games be a dead card.

Khalni Gem you can find a better rock i think. plus this doesnt ramp you. it leaves you at parity. id only play this if you were playing a landfall deck. besides 4 is a little late to be ramping.
Spiny Starfish? i love the flavor but not sure what its doing here.
Thassa, God of the Sea shes awsome but one scry a turn isnt really worth the slot and you dont have the devotion to make her a creature. plus you dont have anything worth making unblockable.
Mana Breach can be kind of a nonbo with the rest of the deck. if you are staxing their lands down, this lets them always have one to replay untapped.
Lim-Dul's Vault is meh. it lets you stack your deck but at the cost of life and you dont actually draw the card.
Words of Waste you dont really have enough draw to make this worth it.
Ivory Tower same as above.
Venser's Journal i dont know if this is good enough. its 5 mana and by the time you can cast it you are going to need to be casting wraths, maintaining stax or trying to combo off. plus the life gain doesnt happen immediately. and again, ou dont have enough draw
Felidar Sovereign too easy to destroy. you have no ways of flashing it in.
