I won't hold it against you, but Selenia, Dark Angel is quite fantastic. You just have to incorporate a few extra tools into your deck. Some examples being Soul Conduit and Platinum Angel. Use Selenia's ability (Only cost is paying life so you can "In response to her ability, activate her ability") to put yourself low (or kill yourself if you have any ability to keep yourself alive) then switch your life total with another player killing them instantly and putting yourself back up quite a ways.
Regardless, I love me some B/W Angel decks.Kaya, Ghost Assassin would be good in this along with any of the Sorins. If you end up with a higher CMC deck, Sorin, Grim Nemesis wouldn't be too terrible as he hits all opponents for your "draw".
Maybe Fumigate over End Hostilities? Also, it looks like you're trying to gain life off creature deaths? Devour Flesh is ok, but it gives life to the player who lost the creature, not you. In that case you might be better off just running Swords to Plowshares.
Not sure how helpful any of this was, but good luck on your endeavour sir/ma'am.

I didn't realize that EDH had to have exactly 100. I've been playing this format for years and didn't know that. I do overflow a little bit from time to time going with 100 cards in the 99 or 101, but I never knew it was an actually enforced rule that it was to be exactly 100 cards. That's crazy I never knew that, haha.
I have to disagree with you on Soul Conduit. This deck can be very taxing to myself for lifepoints, and considering I don't have any creatures to block with, I often times win games either around 10 life or with less than 10 life. Given this circumstance I love keeping Soul Conduit in my deck as an option to keep myself alive, especially when I have so many options between different players in a multi-way format. I think this deck definitely calls for Soul Conduit. Esepcially considering I can use it multiple times and that games can end up going a long time with this deck, being a prison control, that is.
Mycosynth Lattice is counterproductive to me a lot of times, because my general, Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed, clearly only recurs cards... This means that with everything being colourless (even in my graveyard), I'm not actually able to recur anything from my grave anymore.
That being said, however, its usually a late game card that I end up using when I pull off an infinite mana combo so I can play my whole hand. (I often times have a large hand even in the end game with the deck). But I can appreciate how unnecessary it can be.
I will play test without the Lattice, but I firmly think that Soul Conduit is too useful to me in a deck as taxing on life total as this one is.

MagicalHacker there's also a great trick with Treasonous Ogre and Soul Conduit...you can use the life loss ability to pay for the life exchange, which makes it a 4 mana two card combo. Quite awesome imo.

It seems Tainted Remedy is the strongest card in this deck, or let's say the Card that screams "Combo" the most, so you better exploit it in the best possible way. Arbiter of Knollridge probably kills all opponents at once with this Card and I'd go looking for more Cards, which include lifegain for everyone. I'm sure there are some but I don't know any names...maybe search for "each Player" or "all Players" and "gain life" and hopefully you find some more tricks.
Aetherflux Reservoir is a perfect killer with Oloro and Words of Wind creates a huge amount of life very fast (5 life for every 2 mana in your upkeep with Oloro). You should consider Soul Conduit for more life exchanging tricks, maybe Hatred as well. what's better than using your life as a resource for overpowered spells and abilities and then give your low life total to someone else?

Dude this is awesome! Maybe Soul Conduit to exchange lives at the best moment?
