Orzhov Cluestone Discussion

One thing that really stood out to me was that the average CMC is ~4, and there are only 4 ramp cards. That's higher than my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck and it has plenty of high-CMC bombs!
There aren't too many options for ramp in BW, but you'll find plenty of ramp in black. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers go together amazingly. Basalt Monolith is a nice, quick 3 mana. Orzhov Cluestone, Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone and Hedron Archive all provide ramp early game, and can be cracked for draws late game.
As for cuts, I'd recommend Vizkopa Confessor and Sin Collector since single player discard is low-impact in multiplayer games. Agent of Masks, Yahenni, and Revenant Patriarch are either mediocre or don't really follow the deck's game plan.
Hope this helps!

You're going to want to speed up the deck a little bit by removing 2 or 3 lands, and adding in a few more mana rocks as replacements. With 39 lands, you're probably going to feel mana flooded. Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Star Compass, Thought Vessel are good 2 cmc mana rocks, Commander's Sphere, Orzhov Cluestone are color fixing/cantrips later on in the game.
You probably want about 8 sources of card draw, currently you only have 3. Consider Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Ancient Craving, Ambition's Cost, Promise of Power, Dark Tutelage, Necropotence. Cheap card draw will also help smooth out your land drops during the early game, and give you more gas later on in the game. Personally, I found Well of Lost Dreams to be too slow. Grave yard recursion is also card advantage: Phyrexian Reclamation, Chainer, Dementia Master
As for the deck itself:
What do you consider to be the main win condition? It looks like you're trying to go for a pillowfort strategy with life gain/drain, so you probably want some cards like Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, Sphere of Safety, Righteous Aura, Thaumatic Compass Flip to protect yourself even more. Lifegain still loses against commander damage, so you might also want some more spot removal: Royal Assassin, Dark Impostor

Dragonskull Summit and Unclaimed Territory might be good cards you can use in place of some of the shock lands. I understand the utility of a shock land, but have never been a fan of pinging myself every time I want to use a land for mana. I tend to use lands that benefit me if they are coming in tapped like Akoum Refuge, Bloodfell Caves and Scoured Barrens. Temple of the False God might warrant a spot in this deck.
I agree with enpc suggesting lowering your lands down to about 37. I run Edgar Markov comfortably on 37. You could also include Rakdos Cluestone, Boros Cluestone and Orzhov Cluestone for both mana and card draw.
Hope some of my suggestions helped!

Eternity Vessel will go well with Aetherflux Reservoir. Drogskol Reaver, Ivory Cup, Celestial Mantle and Kambul are all good cards for an Oloro Deck. With eternity vessel, the cup, and celestial mantle in play I can get 75-200 life all day unless my opponent is running a harsh deck like slivers.
Drop the Orzhov Cluestone and Orzhov Keyrune. They are both too costly for their mana production. Consider Tablet of the Guilds.
These are just my recommendations based on playing Oloro as a commander.

Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough
Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy
Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.
Contemplation, combo off!
Honor the Fallen - on theme graveyard hate that's also a combat trick
Mastery of the Unseen this needs a lot of mana to be great, but maybe you'll get some good use out of it. It's kinda iffy though
Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white
Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov
Exsanguinate is good
Use all the life you gain for benefits, like card draw! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections
or recursion Phyrexian Reclamation
Some possible cuts
Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander
Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?
