Funkydiscogod, Boza, both of those cards are good, but they do not reward their owner for sacrificing a creature (by causing their opponents to lose life) nor punish them for failing to do so (by making them lose life).

Also, the original card did not cause the creature to tap if its controller failed to sacrifice a creature, so I do not wish for mine to do so, either, because that would make the creature useless, in addition causing loss of life.

Furthermore, the long wording for the triggered ability was also used on One Thousand Lashes, so I am not the first player to use it.

If you want to inch towards a more drain and gain over several turns here are a few ideas you might want to consider

Stab Wound, Pillory of the Sleepless, One Thousand Lashes, Visions of Brutality, Agent of Masks, and Sinister Possession

If you want to proceed along a more lifegain based creature buff type thing then you might want to consider

Fiendslayer Paladin, Authority of the Consuls, Fumigate, Blind Obedience, and Ajani's Pridemate

Our decks are kinda similar? Some cards I found useful:Karlov of the Ghost CouncilWhip of ErebosOne Thousand LashesOrzhov KeyruneI wouldn't do Blood Baron of Vizkopa. Does better in Orzhov than in Esper decks.

Pillory of the Sleepless is STRICTLY better than One Thousand Lashes, and like 5 cents more. Also, manabase could use work (though I know the money pains).

This is a big improvement, but I did some playtests and I almost always start missing land drops after turn 3 or 4, unless I get Land Tax or Weathered Wayfarer. In one particularly frustrating game, I had Solemn Simulacrum in hand, but was unable to get above 3 mana by turn 6, so he never saw play. In another game, I had the same scenario with Gilded Lotus.

These are some cards I think you could cut to speed things up, either by replacing them with lands and rocks, or with more efficient cards.

Debtors' Knell: It costs so much, and does nothing until your next turn (making it wide open for removal.) It's also your most expensive card, yet it isn't central to your winning strategy. In my experience, this card is only good if you can cheat it onto the battlefield. At 7 mana, I'd much rather have Rise of the Dark Realms for two more and just call it a day.

One Thousand Lashes: I'd rather pay half as much for Darksteel Mutation.

Spiritual Asylum: Orzhov is resilient to spot removal anyway. Lightning Greaves for your most important pieces.

Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath: I don't see how any of his abilities are super relevant. In most cases, the net result of casting him is that you get a vanilla 5/5 flyer for 5 mana. That's not great.

Liliana Vess: 5 mana for a tutor that puts something on top of your library. You can do better. With so few creatures, you shouldn't expect any planeswalkers to last more than one go around the table, so they need to be able to do big things the same turn you play them, like Sorin Markov.

Athreos, God of Passage: You don't have many creatures. The ones you do are pretty much all bombs, so your opponents will just pay to keep them in your yard. I can see him maybe draining for 6 life in a game, which is okay, but it's not spectacular.

Spelltithe Enforcer: He's not bad, but he isn't worth 5 mana in my book. Personally, since you're going for pillow fort, I'd much rather have Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker.

Norn's Annex: This card can buy you some time, but it's the weakest pillow fort card you have.

I highly recommend going up to at least 37 lands and 6 rocks. As it stands here, you will rarely be able to play more than one spell per turn with this curve, which is important when you want to set up two-piece combos like Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood.

Also, you have very little draw here. I'm counting Phyrexian Arena, Greed, and Erebos, God of the Dead, and that's it. You have great ways of tutoring out Necropotence. I would recommend adding that. If you can keep your hand full, you won't need to replicate your efforts with so many copies of cards that have similar effects.

Lastly, I would recommend adding Expedition Map to help you set up Urborg/Coffers.

A personal favorite of mine that could fit in very well here would be Kambal, Consul of Allocation. A wonderful low cost that still fits in with the human type you are building. Also, Doomed Traveler may be a decent low cost addition.

Additionally if you want a little more control you can toss in a mix of One Thousand Lashes or Pillory of the Sleepless

Good Start here. I also built an orzhov lifegain deck early on when getting into EDH.

Some cards I'd rec:Rhox Faithmender, Wall of Limbs, Beacon of Immortality, Crypt Incursion, Boon Reflection, Celestial Mantle, One Thousand Lashes, Pillory of the Sleepless, Tainted Sigil, Chalice of Life  Flip, Marble Chalice,

Planeswalkers:Ajani Goldmane, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Sorin, Solemn Visitor.

I used Karlov of the Ghost Council instead of Obzedat. He's a ton of fun to play with. If you want to see my deck: Soul Shakedown Party
