I'd definitely drop Implements of Sacrifice and Treasure Keeper, and recommend dropping Cathodion, Order of Whiteclay, and Feldon too. Seems like it could use more sac outlets like Arcbound Ravager, Goblin Bombardment, Culling Dais, Dark-Dweller Oracle, Fanatical Devotion, Jinxed Idol, Krark-Clan Shaman, and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. I'd also think about any of the creatures that make Treasure when they enter or die, Brass's Bounty, Smothering Tithe, Hangarback Walker, Hoarding Dragon, Scrapyard Recombiner, Servo Schematic, Bloodfire Infusion

In hindsight, that may be a bit too mean... and also reliant on drawing three cards... You can also consider Illusions of Grandeur , Jinxed Idol , or Aggressive Mining (Maybe also Transcendence as well).

Yo, just wnated to point out that Jinxed Idol and Rust Elemental is absolute garbage in this deck becasue they enable your opponent to sacrifice your donations.

Other cards in white that deal damage to you are rare, but some colorless cards exist for the job, here all of the ones that come to mind:

The white part of the Odyssey utility threshold lands: Nomad Stadium

Grand Coliseum and City of Brass

Mana Vault and Mana Crypt are even better than usual here!

Staff of Nin xDD to deal damage to you!

Ankh of Mishra would be amazing!

Off of that staff one I though of Blasting Station ... there is some infinite combo there, right?

Jinxed Idol might not be so jinxed after all!

Ancient Tomb is amazing as well.

That is all I have for that... now for some finishers once you have the life/token engine going!

Well of Lost Dreams / Mentor of the Meek ? They would do a fair amount of work in terms of drawing.

Felidar Sovereign / Archangel of Thune - normal lifegain shenanigans.

Jazal Goldmane / Cathars' Crusade / Coat of Arms / Mirror Entity / Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - normal token shenanigans.

Anointed Procession for more fun?

Divine Visitation too...

Ashnod's Altar / Phyrexian Altar would be good value

Slate of Ancestry on that note.

That's all I got... other than random anthem effects like Dictate of Heliod , but that would be too weak IMO.

I feel like Grisly Salvage should outperform Strategic Planning most of the time.

Alternative sac outlet would be nice too- Spawning Pit and Jinxed Idol are cheap iirc.

Corpsejack Menace is great, but have you considered either Hardened Scales or Winding Constrictor? If creatures are gaining more than one counter at a time, Corsejack gives the biggest reward. Undying creatures return to the battlefield with only one counter. Both of these cards have lower CMCs and provide the same reward for undying triggers.

Since this deck's average CMC is only 2.5, the mana ramp provided by Arbor Elf isn't strictly necessary. Have you considered filling that slot with another synergy, like graveyard play with Scavenging Ooze or Varolz, the Scar-Striped, token farming with Gutter Grime, or another sacrificing source AND direct opponent damage with the amazing Jinxed Idol?

This deck only has 5 cards which activate activate the ever important sacrifices, 3 Bloodflow Connoisseurs and 2 Altar's Reaps. That's not much. Adding a little extra with a few Jinxed Idols might help.
