This is how I want my deck to look :3
Will be ripping stuff from your list like Panharmonicon I can get some use out of this.
Rebirth can wipe and leave you with a big token to populate on (I know it's a little heavy for a wipe though)

Some of the cards you're running you may run into problems with as you test your deck out. Gifted Aetherborn is great in formats like standard, but in Commander it's harder to make use of a small creature that doesn't impact life totals very much. Perimeter Captain has the same issue. If someone is attacking you, it's probably because they have the advantage in the combat step so blocking once with your defenders before they die won't help a lot. Wall of Essence and Souls of the Faultless have the same issue, although out of all of them the souls of the faultless seems like the best if you were to keep one. Serra Avatar can be chump blocked and you have no way to reliable give her lifelink, so she's a big card that doesn't do much. Student of Warfare really doesn't seem to fit the lifegain theme of your deck. Axis of Mortality doesn't seem to fit your deck either. If your deck is working right, you will have the highest life total. So why change it with someone else? And there isn't much advantage to swapping opponent life totals either. Fatal Push just doesn't cut it in a format like commander with big finishers. Same with Summary Judgment. I'd take out Cradle of Vitality as well since your deck mostly about triggering small incidental pieces of lifegains and not huge swings of it.
I suggest removing these cards just so you can have more lands. A good rule of hand I use for commander is that you run 32 lands + 1 land for each color + 1 land for your commander's converted mana cost. For you, that'd be 36 lands. This is very flexible, btw. I would suggest Rogue's Passage being one of those lands because your commander can get very big. You can just kill somebody with those 21 points of commander damage if you'd like. Two other great cards are Bloodchief Ascension and Phyrexian Processor. They seem to work well with your deck. Just make sure to have another 4 mana to at least activate the processor once before it's destroyed.

Good suggestions, thank you both!
Yes, card draw is something I feel like I need more of. I had already considered Dawn of Hope and Shamanic Revelation, but my experience with the former is that it is too slow, and as for the latter, I'm concerned that it would draw me too many cards. However, Mentor the meek and Lifecrafter's Bestiary are both worth a look.
I also had already considered Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and while, yes, that ult is wildly tempting, it feels like I don't need it. On the other hand, Panharmonicon seems like it might be even more useful for the deck than Primal Vigor; it costs one less and only grants its ability to me. I know their effects are very different from each other, but do you think that I would benefit from swapping them?
Phyrexian Processor and True Conviction are both also definite maybes. I do already have somewhat of a mana curve issue, but had recently been suggested Endless Horizons, which will help a lot to deal with that. I'm sure that I can find a way to fit them both in here.
As for the commander, Shalai, Voice of Plenty is useful in more situations than Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. I think of Trostani more as just a redundancy of what many other cards in the deck do. Shalai is important for protecting the many planeswalkers, so I want to be sure to get her out every game.
Thanks again! Cheers!

Interesting deck, though it could really benefit from having some additional card-draw/card advantage options. Some ideas on this would be:
- Dawn of Hope: gives tokens with lifegain AND allows you to draw cards (for a price); win-win.
- Mentor of the Meek: works well because most of the creatures in your deck aren't high-powered.
- Shamanic Revelation: card draw, and potential life-gain, in one neat package.
- Lifecrafter's Bestiary: free scrying and card draw if you pay a small price when summoning a creature.
There are more options, but we're not sure what your budget is, so we have refrained from mentioning these.
We were surprised to not encounter the following cards in your deck:
- Panharmonicon: this doubles the effectiveness of a loooooot of ETB triggers in this deck.
- Phyrexian Processor: you will have life to spare for this one, and tokens generated with it will most likely result in you gaining more life.
- True Conviction: shouldn't this be an auto-include?
- Ajani, Mentor of Heroes: because his ult is funny.
Have fun and good luck with this brew. Ow and as a side note, wouldn't Trostani make more sense as your commander?

I am playing Ayli as kind of combo deck:

I would definitely suggest adding in Mimic Vat. It's incredibly flexible, and you can Populate the token and keep that copy. The tokens from Desolation Twin and Phyrexian Processor can be hilarious with Trostani. Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage can Populate multiple times so I'd try to find a space for it. And Phyrexian Rebirth is a great wrath for this deck.
I agree with the first post regarding Explosive Vegetation. I'd personally run Rampant Growth, but if not I'd recommend swapping it for Circuitous Route since it can also find the guildgate, or Skyshroud Claim since you get those lands untapped and it can find duals (in which case I'd also add in Scattered Groves and Temple Garden if possible).
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the big token doublers: Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, and Rhys the Redeemed. But since this is a deck for someone else who's new to the game I can understand why you might not want to include those. But they're always worth mentioning for anything that churns out tokens.
I hope some of that helps : )

So I like this deck but, it seems like the deck is making a lot of small tokens. If you want to go this route have you ever considered Rhys the Redeemed as your commander? Also, these might be a few good cards to give you bigger tokens to populate with Trostani and also syngergize with your lifegain abilities; Angelic Accord, Resplendent Angel, Phyrexian Processor, Ajani, Strength of the Pride and, Mimic Vat. You might also consider adding these card draw abilities, Dawn of Hope and, Idol of Oblivion. Overall, I think you have a good deck here!
