Dropped 3 Soul Warden For 3 Ajani's Welcome for more board stability vs creature destruction and board wipes. Added 2 Dawn of Hope, Amazing difference late game due to card draw. Added 2 Legion's Landing  Flip for the lifelink tokens it can produce. Dropped Archangel of Thune For Resplendent Angel.

You definitely need more lands in this thing. 20 lands will not get you to your five cost angels very easily and reliably. Alternatively, you could splash green for ramp. Cathedral Sanctifier seems objectively worse than Soul Warden or Soul's Attendant. I would run those instead.

Also Soul Warden and Suture Priest would probably help too

This really looks like two separate, decent decks, mushed together into one deck that doesn't really feel like it knows where it's going. It's cool, but picking a lane would likely make this considerably stronger.

If you're mostly trying to lean into the lifegain triggers with beaters like Ajani's Pridemate and lots of little life gain like Soul's Attendant, you're actually aiming for something akin to the old competitive deck Soul Sisters. I'd definitely make a few of the following changes:

-Trade out the vampire tribal themes for creatures like Soul Warden and Auriok Champion. You'll get a lot more healing triggers, meaning a lot more growth for your beaters.

-Trade out Bloodbond Vampire for Archangel of Thune. It costs one more mana, but in return you get a creature that already has flying, has lifelink on the creature, and whenever you gain life it buffs every creature you have in play, instead of just itself.

-Trade out your recursion for single use token makers like Spectral Procession. You get more creatures for less mana, meaning more triggers for your new life gain creatures.

Alternatively, if you want to lean more into vampires... well there are a few ways to do it. My main suggestion would be to swap over to mono-black or B/R, but there are also good white vampires now. That particular design space is wide open still.

Weirding Wood sort of fits the bill. Mentor of the Meek might be decent, too, though without a robust mana base, it will be less useful and than Harmonize IMHO. Utopia Sprawl is nice, but only when you're sure to have a Forest in play to enchant with it. So here, Fertile Ground is going to be a more reliable/better ramp. I'm suggesting ramp spells because you have a lot of spells over 4CMC and only a few at 1CMC. If you don't want to take up space in your deck for ramp spells, I suggest you consider swapping out some of the 4cmc spells for 1cmc spells. A few such spells that could fit off the top of my head: Doomed Traveler, Soul Warden/Soul's Attendant/Essence Warden.

duffman24 thanks for explaining the combo to me, I completely missed that interaction when you made your previous comment and now the recommendations make a lot more sense to me as the interaction between Leonin Relic-Warder with Animate Dead and friends could be powerful. As an added bonus it would provide another way to gain an arbitrarily large life total with Soul Warden and her sisters while providing additional artifact/enchantment removal. I will really have to rethink Leonin Relic-Warder as it adds another combo backup with Altar of Dementia.

Now, if they would just print a Wayward Disciple that does not need to be flipped...

Good work on the deck! This is already remarkably close to an old competitive modern deck, Soul Sisters. I think leaning into that a bit more would be a good way to power this up.

Let's start with the elephant in the room though. Daybreak Coronet has to go. It will only enchant creatures that already have another aura, but you have no other auras, so it does literal nothing here. I'd probably replace it with Spectral Procession. Getting three flying tokens is already good, but because of your cards like Soul Warden this will also turbo charge your creatures that grow when you gain life.

Speaking of, you should probably have more of those effects. Dropping Ajani's Mantra and Ajani's Sunstriker for Soul's Attendant and Auriok Champion will give you more frequent triggers, while also triggering off of one another.
