I'd run the deck closer to a soul sisters deck. Here is the decklist I'd run:
4x Soul Warden
Something like that, it would be cleric heavy soul sisters, but lifegain and tokens too.

Zelpoke I wish i could play Serra Ascendant but it's too slow in this version of soul sisters. If i want to play it i need more bursty lifegain, and i will most likely have to play Martyr of Sands to get myself up to 30 life quick enough for it to matter. And then to keep martyr effective enough i should play mono white souls sisters, instead of the B/W shell i'm running. My life gain is sadly too slow and if i'm lucky i could have a 6/6 ascendant on turn 3-4, but at that time my Ajani's Pridemate's are usually bigger. i might experiment with martyr and ascendant in a later version of the deck (martyr proc? maby?). But thanks for the input :)

@KCSS4999 Felidar Sovereign docent work in this build. BUT there is a similar deck called Martyr Life that uses Martyr of Sands to get a ton of life very fast, that the card does work in.

Match Report 01/18/2018
Games 6 - 2
Matches 3 - 0
Match 1 - Win - Burn
I gained a bunch of life. Duh. Match over. It was actually a little closer because I didn't have a Martyr of Sands in my opening hand but it worked out.
Match 2 - Win - Skred Red
So game 1 I conceded to Stormbreath Dragon - protection form white is pretty good.... In the second and third games a Nevermore on the dragon mad it much easier and I pulled out both postboard games. In the Orzhov build I'm unsure if Castigate would be as good.
Match 3 - Win - Affinty
I was able to sweep the board and block with endless streams of Squadron Hawk. Once Emeria, The Sky Ruin was online he conceded both games. I did lose the second game to a really fast hand where he played all 7 cards on his first turn.
We were the only 4 people there. Outflank Games in Fairfield isn't doing very well with their Modern tourneys.

I have actually and along with Martyr of Sands and the entire maybe board. So many good things and such limited space. I can give it some test runs and see if I like it main board (would make a sweet combo with Serra Avatar or the avatar Ajani Goldmane makes for his ult.) In either case I can add it to the maybe board so it doesn't get forgotten about. Thank you for the feedback!
