Enchanted creature has lifelink. (Damage dealt by the creature also causes its controller to gain that much life.)
Firstly, you've got way too many cards, drop it down to 60 and you'll find your games will turn out more consistent and ultimately better.
I'd probably look at splashing white for this deck. The best lifegain cards are white. You could consider Vampiric Link as it stacks with the lifelink ability. There are also a fair few expensive cards in here so something like Crypt Ghast would be hugely beneficial, especially considering it has extort.
With white splashed in you could consider some other decent cards like, Archangel of Thune , Rest for the Weary , Lifelink , Felidar Sovereign , Serra Ascendant , Wall of Reverence etc.. there is an endless list, and it'll open up the variety of cards you can choose from hugely.
Oops.. almost forgot Divinity of Pride
I like, and take this with a grain of salt as I'm only new to the game but perhaps you could add Sanguine Bond and some dual lands to take down opponents faster? You've already got some black symbols in there (granted you don't have to pay for them with black) but that would open up opportunities to maybe utilize Scholar of Athreos as you only have two Ephara's Radiance to consistently tap Oreskos Sun Guide anyway.
Also, from what I can gather, only Lifelink and Shielding Plax stop this deck from being standard. Shielding Plax is fantastic and a little harder to find some to replace it with but for Lifelink maybe you could use Mortal's Ardor ? Same cost and only works for one turn but is an instant, give a +1/+1 buff as well as lifelink which could go hand in hand with trying to taking opponents out quicker with Sanguine Bond . As for Shielding Plax maybe add another Gods Willing and something else or perhaps Crypsis for one cost less and only protection from creatures but is an instant and gives you a blocker.
You can also enchant an opponents creatures with Spirit Link to essentially neutralize the damage, provided your health doesn't go below zero before the resolution of the ability.
Truth be told I probably wouldn't put these mainboard, but sideboard. Give yourself a lot of 1 drop aura options.
Terese Nielson. Anything by her, pretty much. Enter the Infinite , Eternal Witness , Lifelink , Angel of Jubilation , Basandra, Battle Seraph , Call of the Conclave , Despise , Dismember , Dryad Militant , Elder of Laurels ... I could go on.
Valentine35: Thanks for the input. While it may seem weak in some decks, I feel this deck can properly abuse Righteous Authority . I'm gonna try it out at least before cutting it. While this isn't all out control, I need to keep my opponent from using pesky things that hurt my deck (and believe me it is hard with the contorl I have in my other EDH decks). I may go down two lands, but the Gilded Lotus stays since it helps with ramp. Lifelink helps as well, but may drop it if I see it is unneeded.
