This actually has some pretty cool ideas for a first deck.
I think you might benefit from focusing more on the noncreature spell plan than on the lifegain plan. You can certainly still have both, but having a card like Soulmender just to trigger your two copies of Sunbond seems very committal when you aren't getting other synergy out of it. If you are more interested in the lifegain plan, just let me know and I can certainly provide other suggestions.
With that in mind, some of the creatures could be swapped out for others with heroic or similar abilities. Sungrace Pegasus and Lightwalker could be replaced by Akroan Skyguard or Wingsteed Rider. Graceblade Artisan could be Tethmos High Priest or Fabled Hero. Soulmender could be Myth Realized or Favored Hoplite. Student of Ojutai could be Dawnbringer Charioteers. Nyx-Fleece Ram could be Hero of Iroas, Vanguard of Brimaz, or Monastery Mentor.
If you want to stick with the enchantment theme, you might replace the non-enchantment spells with something like Eidolon of Countless Battles, Ethereal Armor , or Daybreak Coronet. Otherwise, heroic works well with spells that have multiple targets. Some examples are Ajani's Presence, Launch the Fleet, Phalanx Formation, Blessed Alliance, Dauntless Onslaught, Shoulder to Shoulder, Tandem Tactics, Redeem, and Cauldron Haze.
Well, there's some ideas to mull over at least. Good luck with your deck man. (Oh, and by the way, card linking is done using double brackets, not double parentheses.)

True Conviction and Battle Mastery to be a dick, Medomai with double strike will net you two extra turns :O Replace some of your tapped lands with Prairie Stream and Adarkar Wastes, both of them are cheap now.
While the deck doesn't focus heavily on tax, despite the pillow fort cards and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Rhystic Study is another handy tax card and a powerful drawing engine that makes players pay one more for their spells to prevent you getting an advantage. A Bident of Thassa wouldn't go wrong in here either. If you're looking into lifegain, Riot Control might be better than Redeem.
Finally, have you considered Felidar Soverign? It's a mean way to win a game, but satisfying if your meta has a lot of combo players.
