A simple change that should give your creatures more attack power would be to drop 1 each of Giant Killer, Linden, the Steadfast Queen and Selfless Savior to bring in Felidar Retreat and have your creatures gaining +1/+1 counters with every landfall.
I would at least build a side-board around Basri's Acolyte, Basri's Solidarity, Griffin Aerie and Speaker of the Heavens with life-gain instants like Light of Hope and Revitalize. Yes, I know that you have run out of card slots and you might have to drop 2 creatures to enable the major change that can get you generating a range of useful token creatures.

owenger Thanks for your comment! Revitalize gives only 3 life,it's not work good with Angelic Accord,i prefer Healer of the Glade,cost only one mana and it's a creature. Fountain of Renewal it's too much economic expensive(0.52 euro price trend in magiccardmarket)in this deck the limit it's 0.30 euro. And it's not suitable in this deck, it works much better in Vampires gain life Pezzent. If you want, look at my other decks too and tell me what you think ^^

Those are some excellent suggestions, defamagraphy1. I might trade out Archfiend's Vessel for Dire Tactics and Revitalize for the Light of Hope as I have card draw from Taborax, Hope's Demise. Thank's so much for those suggestions. They'll be added to the deck in the near future.

I watched a guy do this and he ended up with 23/23's on the board when paired with Heliod's life link ability. It pairs really well with Taborax too, but I can see why you wouldn't want to use them. Light of Hope is another possibility in place of Revitalize. It doesn't offer you a card, but it does give some mainboard flexibility, costs less, gives more life, blows up and enchantment and can almost turn on a Taborax leaving you mana to spare.

Alright. I want to start off by saying thank you for all of these suggestions MrBoombastic. Now here are my responses:
Taborax, Hope's Demise was something that I always thought about putting in my deck, but replacing Grimdancer isn't something that I want to do. The main reason being the deathtouch counter, which has saved me more times than I can count on my hands when I playtested this deck. If anything, I might replace Expedition Healer and one of the Indulging Patrician for it, or Cling to Dust and 1 or 2 Revitalize depending on needs.
Impassioned Orator is indeed a direct upgrade. Only thing being... it's Core 2020, which is rotating out, so sadly not going to make it in the deck.
Hallowed Priest is indeed an arena-only card as it's part of the Arena Beginner Set, which isn't standard legal anyway. It's really just a reprinted Ajani's Pridemate.
In my personal experience, I have never run more than 23 lands at any given time if the deck itself isn't centered around the lands. My friends will also tell you the same thing. I'm not saying you're wrong, it's just my personal preference. And I'm not having any land troubles so far so I'm good for now. (And it's Radiant Fountain, not Hallowed Fountain)
I definitely agree with your statement, but in this particular case, I'm doing perfectly fine right now. I'm currently not having much, or any, consistency issue, so why fix something that's not broke. And I'm not having trouble choosing what to get rid of either, I just don't feel the need to do so right now. Should I find consistency issues in playtesting, I'll change up the deck, but until then, the disclaimer is staying.
Anyway, hope that clears some stuff up, and thanks again for your suggestions. If you have anything else you want to suggest or questions you want to ask, let me know.

Would be pretty cool to see a proper cleric deck in Standard. I like the idea and have some suggestions:
One of the things the deck is missing is some card draw, which Taborax, Hope's Demise brings alongside some strong beats and potentially even lifelink. He's also a great target for your Heliod, Sun-Crowned counters. I'd swap Grimdancer for him. You might want to start out with just 3 copies though and then maybe add a 4th if he's good enough to not mind drawing multiples.
If you're playing on Arena, Hallowed Priest is both a cleric and synergizes well with the lifegain strategy. Apparently they don't have it in the TappedOut database. Maybe because it's an Arena-only card.
Both Emeria's Call and Agadeem's Awakening are great substitutes for lands. Unless you're on a budget, I think you should almost always play some amount of these instead of lands. Maybe 2 of each for a start. Just remember that they should be played as lands that once in a while double as a lategame bomb, if you have the mana for it.
Looking at your curve, I think you want more lands. Probably at least 25-26, including possible flip cards. Also needed if you're adding Hallowed Fountain, as they will otherwise make for some awkward openers where you're missing a color.
Definitely only play 60 cards in your deck, always. There's never any really good reason to play more than the minimum amount, as that makes for the most consistency. Having trouble cutting cards? Find some candidates for the worst cards in the deck and cut out some number of them, until you're down to 60. I suggest all the spells in this case. Cling to Dust is mainly a sideboard card against Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath and Revitalize doesn't do much either.
Hope that helps. I feel like putting something together on Arena myself now.
