Hey there ExtraEasy,
Thanks for your comment and compliment. I'm getting pulled to red due to the good boardwipes ( Deafening Clarion ) I might have in my sideboard, as well as a good 4-drop Angel. I am considering dropping Red, but it'll come down to how useful it is in the sideboard.
Hey there 9-lives,
Thanks for your comment. I considered Oketra's Monument when the deck was originally just Red-White. However, I decided to add Green for Dromoka's Command , more effective ramp, and Once Upon a Time . I don't think that Oketra's Monument is objectively better than my current ramp choices, as it costs one more, and without T1 Llanowar, then I'm forced to use T3 playing a ramp card instead of playing a Resplendent Angel or Angel of Vitality .

Crested Sunmare is an auto-include in any Oloro deck. Such a good card.
If you're looking to have a fairly interactive deck with Oloro at the helm, I recommend any creature that does things when you gain life. Oloro naturally pushes you in the direction of control, which is fine for some, but I think something more along the lines of midrange is more fun for a newer player as I have found from personal experience. Archangel of Thune , Angel of Vitality , Serra Avatar , Drogskol Reaver , and Resplendent Angel are all great examples of these types of cards. Karlov of the Ghost Council is also an amazing card that is easily abused in Oloro.
I can't really think of anything else off the top of my head but from one Oloro player to another, I hope you have fun.

The only modern competitive lifegain deck I know is soul sisters.

Looks pretty good. I think you should definitely find room for Vizkopa Guildmage . You can activate her second ability multiple times (even in response to the first lifegain trigger), resulting in huge drains for every life gained during the turn!
You might like these too: Storage Matrix , Uba Mask , Angel's Trumpet , Regna, the Redeemer , Sunbond , Cradle of Vitality , Slaughter , Dingus Staff , Ethereal Absolution , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Angelic Accord , Resplendent Angel , Revival, Syphon Mind

Hey, interesting budget version of Atraxa.
Atraxa is your best source of life gain with her lifelink because the damage she does to a player is also Commander damage. She already has evasion (flying) meaning you're most likely going to be gaining life when she attacks. Gaining life while at the same time potentially killing your opponents. I would focus more on Atraxa and beefing her up which then in return makes cards that benefit from gaining life better. Counters are a fine way to beef up Atraxa because they also interact with her proliferate. Consider including more ways to get counters on Atraxa?
Cards within the budget to consider adding:
Ancient, Escalation and Advokist are repeatable sources of counters to put on Atraxa. Even though Escalation and Advokist put counters on an opponent's creature Atraxa is still going to be bigger and more powerful. These cards and Ancient can beef up Atraxa quickly. A big reason to add Climb is Winged Temple of Orazca . It's a win condition land with Atraxa.
Draw and Tutors
Ramp that can make any color of mana is very helpful when playing four colors with a budget manabase. Adding more of it lets you ramp into Atraxa faster.
Value from Gaining Life
Sunmare and Resplendent are repeatable sources to make big tokens when you gain life. Resplendent is very good with Lyra Dawnbringer . Well is good when you're consistently gaining life, turning that life gain into drawing cards.
- Llanowar Wastes
- Yavimaya Coast
- Sunken Hollow
- Prairie Stream
- Canopy Vista
- Woodland Cemetery
- Sunpetal Grove
- Opal Palace
- Ash Barrens
The Pain lands (Llanowar, Coast), Battle lands (Vista, Sunken, Stream) and Check lands (Woodland, Sunpetal) are upgrades for the Bounce lands. The Battle lands are good with Basic lands and Farseek to be able to search for a dual land. The Check lands are good with the Basic lands and the Battle lands. If you cast Atraxa with Opal then she ETB with a counter on her ready to proliferate.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Azorius Chancery
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Dromar's Cavern
- Golgari Rot Farm
- Orzhov Basilica
- Selesnya Sanctuary
- Simic Growth Chamber

i see that you heavily focus on gaining life in your deck, but don't utilise it a lot (except for having a ton of life). the only cards that benefit from you having/gaining much life are, as far as i can see Resplendent Angel , Ajani's Pridemate , Dawn of Hope , Storm Herd and Ajani, Strength of the Pride .
if you really want to play around gaining life/having a ton of it, i would recommend Sanguine Bond , Felidar Sovereign , Greed , Ambition's Cost , Night's Whisper , Defiant Bloodlord , Phyrexian Arena , Epicure of Blood and/or Exquisite Blood .
remember that life is a resource in this game. just gaining a lot of it makes it harder for you to lose the game, yes, but you should also trie to use it to win the game.
if you are looking for any other kind of inspiration, feel free to check out my kaalia deck:
