Enchanted creature has lifelink. (Damage dealt by the creature also causes its controller to gain that much life.)
Since this is modern, it is really easy to build the deck. The 16 reatures you hjave are perfect. 19 lands, including 4 terramorphic expanse and 1 island.
4 arrest, -12 umbras (they are terrible and your creatures have hexproof, so totem armor does nothing).

As a self described Johnny-Melvin I love both obscure combos and alternate formats, So I'm enjoying this project immensely.First some classic combos:Nomads en-Kor /Spirit en-Kor /Martyrdom + anything which triggers on targeting by abilities.
Cephalid Aristocrat ->self mill
Another combo including Freed from the Real ,
Also good with Judge of Currents is Seeker of Skybreak /Tidewater Minion + Runed Stalactite /Amoeboid Changeling /Blades of Velis Vel /Imagecrafter /Mistform Mask /Shields of Velis Vel /Trickery Charm /Wings of Velis Vel
Daru Spiritualist + Barrenton Medic makes an infinite toughness creature as above and also inifite untaps as with Morselhoarder, with infinite damage prevention as a bonus. (They can also double as a targeting source for Cephalid Aristocrat)
Newer sets provide more combo pieces too.with Vintage Masters we get Skirge Familiar which makes infinite black mana via:
+Tortured Existence + Wild Cantor + 3 of Aurora Eidolon Enigma Eidolon Entropic Eidolon Sandstorm Eidolon Verdant Eidolon (I just noticed for the first time that WUBRG order is alphabetical in this cycle. That's neat)
Infernal Caretaker + Grave Scrabbler + sac outlet +9 zombies Ashnod's Altar would and work as the sac outlet and take the place of 4 zombies. (This may be a lot of cards, but it's doable in monoblack)
Heliod's Pilgrim provides another search effect,
Anyways, looking for these was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed it. I hope someone finds some more that we've missed or new sets contain cool common cards that go infinite.
I have a simular deck using the same strategy "High Evasion". It's currently standard and cycling out soon which I'm very sad about. It uses all the best standard low cost flyers 4Hands of Binding and 4Thassa's Rebuff . I will make the deck on tapped out if you want to see it
I will attempt to speed up your deck, as well as keeping your theme of "hexproof and high evasion"
I feel that hexproof is strong, especialy in modern, because there are so many removal spells, Slippery Bogle is a great choice although I still don't like that it can be blocked. There aren't any enough great Auras turn two that make this little guy scary enough to not block.
I feel that there are too many Auras
-3Lifelink +3Augury Owl ... I feel that scrying will help speed the deck, let's get in for damage sooner so you won't have to worry about life points, adding pressure to your competition will be your defense.
Maybe because not hexproof/not to your initial theme
Akroan Skyguard is really strong if not answered, but weak against burn
Courier Hawk fat body low cost flying vigilance is nice
Drogskol Captain is nice, but geist is just better. Would I add it in? tough one, I don't know yet, its slow
keep in mind that I have not bothered to search for any enchantments for this deck, just creatures and spells I remember off the top of my head. I'll add more tips if I feel inclined to.
Also, Lifelink is really nice on unblockables. I know it's W, just putting it out there as something to think about.
