Path of Bravery
As long as your life total is greater than or equal to your starting life total, creatures you control get +1/+1.
Whenever one or more creatures you control attack, you gain life equal to the number of attacking creatures.

so some other lifegain options are
Authority of the Consuls - gains life every time an opponent plays a creature and taps that creature down, letting you swing in. Obviously dependent on your opponent here.
Path of Bravery - gains life everytime you swing, which should hopefully be often and buffs your creatures for it.
as for Bonds, I was surprised to find that there aren't that many cards in white that tap all creatures your opponent controls. The only cheaper option with that effect is AEther Shockwave . If you're looking for a mass lifelink, an alternative would be Ondu Rising .

Here's a tip: don't put any value on that competitive meter. While the meter might give you some rough estimate of where your deck is at, it is generally very inaccurate (for example, people have made joke decks that play off-color lands/spells and have a 100% competitive rating while top-tier competitive decks may not reach 100% on the meter) and should definitely not be used as a criteria to base your card choices off of. And while it's true that Path is the premier white removal spell, it's not like excluding it will make your deck noticeably less competitive. In the end, your deck's capability to win games relies on its overall construction, not the presence of a single card, however good that card may be.
I think a life gain weenie deck like yours is better off with the sisters and Spectral Procession than Chalice of Life Flip/ Path of Bravery / Rest for the Weary . The sisters are much better with Ajani's Pridemate than Martyr of Sands, which only triggers it once on sacrifice. Being that Pridemate and Serra Ascendant are your two most potent threats and the inclusion of the sisters will also help with activating Serra Ascendant, they are better for the overall plan of the deck than the Chalice and Path of Bravery. Spectral Procession is good with the soul sisters, makes great blockers, and is also a potent threat in itself. Tokens help a lot in the midrange/control matchups. I'd start testing with 6 soul sisters and 4 Spectral Procession and go from there.
As for a replacement for Path, I'd suggest On Thin Ice , from Horizons. It's sorcery-speed but is the same cmc and doesn't give your opponent a land, which is a pretty big upside. It's the perfect budget replacement for Path imo. They're also reprinting Snow-Covered Plains and friends, so I believe it comes out at about $18 for the lands and On Thin Ices, quite a bit cheaper than 4 Paths.

I have more if you want to. But first of i want to ask what will be the focus of your deck? One big creature? lifegain stuff? Depending on what you want from your Deck there are better options for some of your cards. I would advise, to go wider instead of bigger. This would also help to generate even more tokens with March of the Multitudes and spiral out of control. that being said...
Also Intangible Virtue (although the vigilance is great) and Path of Bravery feel kind of not impactful. I think, when you play an anthem-effect it should possibly be a game ending threat like Beastmaster Ascension already is. For example the allstar Craterhoof Behemoth .
Are you on a budget? There are some good cheaper options in: Triumph of the Hordes , Cathars' Crusade . Oh and I don't understand your decision to include Elfhame Druid , because you have no kicker spells. how about Avacyn's Pilgrim instead?
Keep it up and please tell us how your deck worked in your league. And I am sorry for my bad english, I am not native.

Gleam of Battle for Lightmine Field -a 6 cost enchant should really do more then this, u want it to really effect the board. this enchant does that!. i will warn you when considering this one, it screws you over bad if someone keeps killing your commander, but hes pretty hard to remove..
Hyena Umbra for Legion's Initiative , if your lookin for a little buff for ur junior guys this card here will help all of them! and its second ability i believe will save your men from a boardwipe, or u other combat tricks like block then sac it and they will return while still blocking trampless creatures!
in my last post about land i missed Sacred Foundry which is expensive but was just reprinted and will only go up in price. very excellent upgrade.

Just did a little browsing through an old casual lifegain deck I used to run, I came across Serene Steward which could be a lot of fun here, as she's both cheap and would be providing Ghave with constant counters to continue to fuel his abilities. Path of Bravery is also a fun card, though I'm not sure if it would work as well here because by looking at the deck it seems you won't be attacking with enough regularity to warrant the card slot.
