Ah, life gain! A strategy as old as time, so what a splendid choice in deck!

May I recommend such effects as Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble ? They seem to slot in perfectly.

Beacon of Immortality can propel you far ahead, often to the point of team-up. (Use with care)

As for card draw, Necrologia and Necropotence churn through a library quickly, and Well of Lost Dreams can draw quite a few cards in short time. I would definitely make room for that any of those.

Killing Wave is a befitting board wipe for a strategy such as this, especially one with few creatures.

Phyrexian Processor can be a finisher with efficacy, but that's a personal choice.

Blind Obedience can slow down your opponents vastly whilst upholding your life-gain schemes.

Crypt Ghast is fine ramp that, again, can gain life.

At last, Chainer, Dementia Master is a card I love all too much and gets out of hand very quickly.

Let the Nightmare Go On..: My decklist for Chainer. :)

Conquer all with 200 life.

Bitterheart Witch too tutor a specific curse with a sack mechanic such as Bone Splinters or Killing Wave or Porphyry Nodes or Spark Harvest

Grim Haruspex is useless in this deck as rayami prevents death triggers. Also Rayami's main weakness is an opponent forcing you to sacrifice him. Assault Suit gets around that plus gives haste, and lets you toss him around the table to spread commander damage. I would recommend more voltron artifacts too. I've seen a lot of decks neglect them because Rayami is fueled by creatures but its important to not neglect them. Remember, Rayami's big disadvantage comes from the fact that when a creature comes on to the field, you want to sac it most of the time, leaving you with just Rayami during your opponents turn. Get around this with some restrictive effects. Propaganda and Crawlspace are good. Try maybe adding Glacial Chasm to give you a stall period to build your board perhaps. Killing Wave can be a great mana sink if you don't mind throwing your own stuff away. Came here from the facebook group and your list looks solid, but theres always improvements to be made. In the new upcoming set theres an artifact creature that give vigilance reach and protection from multicolor. And has a cheap cmc of... X. Good addition. Think about some creatures that have a good amount of keywords like swiftwing and nighthawk that are under 3 or 4 mana. Theres plenty already here but theres more to be found in the old vaults haha. Solid list though, man!
