Pontiff of Blight Discussion
2 weeks ago
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?

So you cant count on lantern to come up every game. its better to just have a good mana base and some fixing for consistency. Prismatic Lens is not ideal but can be used to this end. Sorry about how I came across. I've been playing oloro since he came out, he was my first commander.
Other advice I have, you dont have enough draw to make use of Alhammarret's Archive. You gain enough life with Oloro that making 4 instead of 2 is negligible. Think about adding Night's Whisper Read the Bones Ponder Brainstorm Preordain. They really shine with the archive. Also if you want to keep all of your walls maybe put in Pontiff of Blight he can be devastating with Oloro since you can activate Oloro's ability on each extort trigger.

I see you have some extort effects. Have you considered Pontiff of Blight? Might be a decent way to get additional value out of all of your smaller creatures as things go in to the late game.
Also, if you find that you're routinely at 50+ life, it's possible that Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim would be good. That may be less viable if you're not running a fair amount of tokens, though. It may very well just not fit in this list.

Commander is usually a slower format, where it's not too difficult to get a lot of mana. For this reason I wouldn't focus so much on very small creatures that won't do anything. You have to remember that players have 40 life and if early game the only thing you will do is chump-block with something like Vampire Cutthroat you won't get very far...
To play with Razaketh, the Foulblooded I would play stuff that doubles your mana, stuff that takes advantage of dieing and then either go tokens or go reanimator style. A must have I think is Crypt Ghast, because with some artifact ramp you can get him out turn 3 and your commander turn 4 (also he has extort so he can gain you life). Another card to heavily increase your mana is Cabal Coffers, I'm certain there are a few others.
As you can see there is quite some ramp available. For this reason I would only choose the very best cards among the ones you listed. Bloodsoaked Champion goes very well with your strategy, the same counts for Blood Artist, Supernatural Stamina is a nice little combo with your commander.
As you want to take advantage of stuff dieing I would not go all out on your commander, but also have other sac outlets, like Yahenni, Undying Partisan (which is on your list), High Market, maybe even Nantuko Husk or something similar.
How about you make a complete list so that we can help you in finding synergies with the rest of the cards (I'd love to see your enchantments, artifacts, etc).

I have a Queen Marchesa deck, Divine Decree, that builds tokens and continuously pokes away at opponents with those tokens while padding myself with pillows. some of the win cons are Sublime Archangel, Pontiff of Blight, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Westvale Abbey, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. I don't generally think of it as control but the amount of creature kill I can do without a field wipe I suppose it may as well be control.
A friend of mine runs Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and usually combos off but sometimes he just recycles his grave into his library so many times he is able to kill everyone without comboing. he just pokes everyone over and over and over and over... well you get the idea, those games go really long though.

You've got a nice build for sure. May I suggest cutting some of your lands that ETB tapped: Ebon Stronghold, Everglades, Leechridden Swamp, Piranha Marsh. The reason for this is that they don't really have much of an impact, while coming into play tapped is a huge downside.
Finally, if you're looking for some lifedrain I would suggest Pontiff of Blight, as it grants extort to all your creatures.

Exsanguinate is another nice lifedrain card.
Paradox Haze is another card that interacts well with Oloro.
Koskun Falls is another pillowfort enchantment you can run.
Another life doubler is Boon Reflection.
I also personally do not really like Sublime Exhalation, but since my playgroup tends to play Avacyn, Angel of Hope, you can keep it if you want. I was going to suggest sweepers like Merciless Eviction or Cyclonic Rift.
Sorin, Grim Nemesis also interacts well with lifegain decks.
