There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.

Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

Slaughter - seems good with extort stuff

Esper Panorama - more fetch lands!

Righteous Cause, Patron of the Kitsune - life gain off anyone attacking

Consuming Vapors - kill spell and life gain

Well of Lost Dreams - card draw!

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant lots of life gain

Disciple of Bolas - do this with a big Sunscorch Regent then draw into Aetherflux Reservoir to kill somebody lol

maybe more lose life draw cards nonsense like Sign in Blood, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Corpse Augur, Hoarder's Greed, Night's Whisper, Promise of Power, Wretched Confluence

I hope you get to enjoy the fun of finding hidden gems in all the cards you have sitting around! Let me know if you want to debate any cards!!!

anything with extort that's at least a little good. Basilica Screecher, Kingpin's Pet, Treasury Thrull, Thrull Parasite or Pontiff of Blight

Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough

Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble

Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy

Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.

Contemplation, combo off!

Disciple of Griselbrand, or Disciple of Bolas let you convert a big karlov to something else

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

Patron of the Kitsune and Righteous Cause are VIP's with karlov

Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white

Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov

Soldier of the Pantheon

Suture Priest

Vampiric Rites

Vizkopa Confessor

Wingmate Roc

Exsanguinate is good

Well of Lost Dreams and Alhammarret's Archive are nifty but expensive on the $budget$

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

budget cuts might include, Ajani Goldmane, Lightning Greaves (this might be Swiftfoot Boots), Angelic Chorus

Some possible cuts

Rupture Spire, Shimmering Grotto, Transguild Promenade - two color decks don't need to slow down this much for mana fixing

Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander

Bond of Agony seems bad, maybe Exsanguinate

Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?

Doom Blade could be Go for the Throat if your meta/budget allows for it

Darksteel Ingot, Orzhov Cluestone, Orzhov Keyrune could be cut for a 2 mana rock, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Star Compass. Maybe one of those

Blind Hunter, Blood Tithe, Agent of Masks, Certain Death don't seem strong enough

As best I can gather, you seem to be heavily focusing on the +1/+1 counters part of your commander, which is interesting.

Considering you want to beef up your creatures, it may be an idea to sideboard or mainboard a boardwipe or two, and since you're going to have huge creatures, I think Blasphemous Act would be a good one for you. Especially useful for dealing with your opponents casting annoying little deathtouch 1/1's.

Warstorm Surge also combos very well with token generation, especially if said tokens ETB with +1/+1 counters already on them.

Also since you have quite a few cards that focus on ETB triggers I really have to suggest Strionic Resonator and Panharmonicon which will wombo combo insanely well together and with cards like Warstorm Surge and Cathar's Crusade, not to mention Purphoros. Together with those 5 cards, it really would only take you generating 5 1/1 tokens in your upkeep to kill someone from full health. And if you put more focus on token generation, I would suggest the brand new Amonkhet card that was spoiled recently called Anointed Procession and it's older green version Parallel Lives. Assemble the Legion may also be of use to you since you already have proliferate engines in your deck, and along with Doubling Season and the other two token buffers I just mentioned, you will have a great deal of tokens.

For lifegain, you could also consider True Conviction and perhaps some graveyard recycle for late game Archangel's Light. For a creature as well for lifegain, Patron of the Kitsune would work well, and you'll get multiple triggers per attack off your Archangel of Thune

Keep in mind, most of these suggestions will change the nature of the deck and how it plays rather than improve what's there. So take these suggestions with a grain of salt before thinking about buying these cards.

They trigger separately. If events cause an ability to trigger multiple times simultaneously, the triggers aren't combined into a single ability. They're all put onto the stack as separate objects and will resolve separately from one another. In your example this can matter a lot, as it affects how Patron of the Kitsune interacts with cards like Ajani's Pridemate and Archangel of Thune.

With the card Patron of the Kitsune, the second ability reads "Whenever a creature attacks, you may gain 1 life."

Does this ability trigger separately for each individual attacking creature on the board? ( 3 attacking creatures, 3 separate ability triggers of +1 life ), or does it see 3 attacking creatures and add 1 trigger of +3 life?

I am against fog effects in general unless they do a bunch of other stuff as all it does is by you a turn. If you are facing aggression from multiple opponents it doesn help either. As for your general, Atalya isn't the best life gain commander out there. A good commander doesn't necessarily mean a better deck but there are other options if you decide you want to have one with more of an impact here are a few others you could consider:

Mono White: Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Gerrard Capashen, Cho-Manno, Revolutionary, Patron of the Kitsune

white/green:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Dragonlord Dromoka

White/Black: Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Obzedat, Ghost Council, Kambal, Consul of Allocation

White/Red: Brion Stoutarm

If personally I had to make a lifegain deck with any commander, I'd probably do Ayli, karlov, kambal or Rune-Tail. Any of the ones i listed would also be defendable choices though.
