I took a few ideas from you as I was building my deck. I ended up with a fun list that I am pretty happy about. Although the goal was to have it play on a more casual table, I am gonna drop it here since it might be helpful to other people:

Aminatou Blink-Control-Drain

I've added a few more aggressive wincons to drain other players' life such as Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Obzedat, Ghost Council

nice thank you. i have added chain veil into my deck and have Baleful Strix and Obzedat, Ghost Council to combo with it. the strix can draw your deck and the ghost council can win the game with your chain veil combo

I like the deck! I think I would put in Vona, Butcher of Magan For taking away game changer cards from opponents. I also noticed that this paired with Exquisite Blood is a big game over.

Have you thought about: Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim -could work well with Sanguine Bond and Resplendent Angel -sacrifice the angel after attacking if you have not gained enough life or at the end of opponents turn Drana's Emissary -sit back and watch them slowly die or combine with Anguished Unmaking - - if you have extra life to spare it is a powerful card Kambal, Consul of Allocation -good against creature-less or creature-deficient decks Obzedat, Ghost Council - don't need a defender? Deal 2 damage/gain 2 life each turn after attacking! Also works well with Fatal Push Vizkopa Guildmage - Whenever you gain life, deal equal damage to opponent. With a lifelink creature and Sanguine Bond that is triple damage. Intervention Pact - they won't see it coming Scholar of Athreos - no limit to this ability

These cards may not have lifelink, but may pair well with the deck.

Personally I feel like I would want Kambal, Consul of Allocation as the commander over Obzedat, Ghost Council. Kambal costs less meaning you can get him out earlier, and his trigger can happen many times in one turn cycle whereas Obzedat can only drain once every turn cycle. Kambal seems to be the better choice to me, but it’s up to you.

Also you may want to have Blood Artist in here. It’s another Zulaport Cutthroat type effect except it happens whenever any creature dies, not just your own creatures.

Exquisite Blood would be a great card here if you ever are looking to expand the budget. It’s pretty expensive but it’s very good, and it makes an infinite combo with Sanguine Bond to immediately win you the game.

Authority of the Consuls could also be a good inclusion since you’ve got Blind Obedience in here already.

You could also use cards such as Necropotence and Phyrexian Arena to get some extra cards off your high life total; both these cards are incredibly strong, especially in decks with some lifegain to mitigate their (relatively small) downside.

Azor's Gateway  Flip (flips to Sanctum of the Sun) could also be a stellar inclusion here. Since you’ll be gaining lots of life you can generate absurd amounts of mana with the Sanctum and then you could use it with Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless to finish off the game.

Scytec Obzedat, Ghost Council looks good, i'm trying to turn this deck into a discard/life gain life drain deck.

Just seen your comment Argy, if you want the truth its because I was briefly taken over by the spirit of the Obzedat, Ghost Council for a bit.

Took a few experiments to purge myself.

Obzedat, Ghost Council is good, also Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. you could also add some big eldrazi (Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger) if you want to be super budget. Other than that I think the deck is very nice
