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.

Hey I have some hopefully new ideas for you. I'm not going to focus on EDH staples like upgrading removal spells and mana because you can figure those things out easy enough on your own. I like to focus on lesser known synergy cards and combos. Quietus Spike & Scytheclaw are brutal on unblockable creatures. Desolation Twin makes the biggest tokens in the game. Mimic Vat, Blade of Selves, and Phyrexian Processor are unique token creation cards. Hour of Reckoning can be a basically one sided wrath. Phantom General and Intangible Virtue are great for token decks too and so is Rootborn Defenses. I hope that was helpful, happy gathering!!

I definitely need to add Aurelia, True Conviction and Wound Reflection, just have to pick them up. I was also looking at Lone Wolf for the same reason you suggested Siege Behemoth and Outmaneuver; great cards for what I'm trying to do here.
I really like the idea of using Boros Reckoner, Spitemare -- and especially Arcbond with something like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in play -- to deal out damage on the defensive.
I have a Quietus Spike I could move to this, and also picked up a Scytheclaw recently but didn't run it after realizing the damage is not being dealt by the creature, so Saskia doesn't copy that damage. But then again, if I'm swinging at Saskia's target, they're taking a huge hit before Saskia deals her damage, so assuming the opponent as full life, I'd need 4 damage to get though with one source to double damage it's fatal: 28 (4x2+20) from combat, then 16 from Saskia. Hm, I'll have to playtest these and reconsider.
Great suggestions, thanks Rzepkanut!

Hm. I am not totally convinced by Semblance Anvil or Prototype Portal because of the 2-for-1 potential of imprint. Maybe cut one of your voltron pieces of equipment like Scytheclaw? A different cut might be Ghostly Prison since you are probably going to create a healthy number of chump blockers, or Ethersworn Adjudicator since it costs a cumulative 8 mana before you are using its Mortify ability.
I'm a little surprised not to see Trinket Mage or its buddies. They are good tutors for you and only have one in their cost, so are easy on your 4-color base.

I thought about Havoc Festival for a long time. My problem with it is "players." My deck takes A LOT of life to gain advantage. Necropotence, Phyrexian Purge, Erebos, God of the Dead, Greed, Phyrexian Arena, Ob Nixilis Reignited, and Mana Barbs. I don't mind hurting myself to hate my opponents more, but I believe I need lifegain. I settled for Scytheclaw instead. Also, with Havoc Festival you will become a serious target. You will need to make sure you have protection to stay alive. At least with Scytheclaw I can try politics to stay alive by making a deal not to attack someone.

I'd highly recommend: Quietus Spike, Scytheclaw and Daretti, Scrap Savant. You have too few mountains, only 3 in the 99 deck. You won't be able to cast your commander, believe me. Overall is a nice deck +1.

You could consider something more along the lines of what I ran for Anya: Of Angels and Shadows
Since the goal for Anya is to get one or more opponents to <20 life as quickly as possible, it's key to get damage through, especially with Quietus Spike and/or Scytheclaw. I personally went with shadow and equipment route as almost no one runs shadow, making those creatures effectively unblockable, plus if someone lacks flying you can toss it on an angel such as Anya if needs be.
