These two are my fave generals! It's nice to see them pop up. Looks like you got all the essentials. I love this pair so much I actually made two lists for them haha. You can check mine out at these links if you're interested: tuned // budget.
The only thing I would recommend making room for is Sunbond. Unlike the other auras, this one still makes Tana bigger even if she gets blocked, and the boost sticks around after Sunbond gets removed.

So you've chosen mono-white, traditionally seen as a weaker colour in EDH thanks to a lack of ramp and draw. But not does it gain life, and you can work with that! First up, some creatures that care about lifegain (if you're not going full stax you'll need decent bodies to block and close out the game if your win-cons get removed): Ajani's Pridemate; Angel of Vitality; Archangel of Thune; Gideon's Company; Heliod, Sun-Crowned; Serene Steward; Serra Ascendant; Serra Avatar or Twinblade Paladin are all decent at this while Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Sun Titan are staples for a reason. I'm not convinced by the Runes, they're cool but a completely dead draw if your opponents aren't playing that colour. Other options might be Ajani's Welcome, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Crackdown; Cradle of Vitality, Dawn of Hope; Path of Bravery; Smothering Tithe and Sunbond. The Reservoir is one of your best ways to win, so being able to search it up with Enlightened Tutor or the more budget Inventors' Fair and Tamiyo's Journal would be good. Other cards that might be good inclusions would be a wrath or two; Tithe/Land Tax; Debt of Loyalty; Lapse of Certainty; Selfless Squire; Rebuff the Wicked; Voidstone Gargoyle; Generous Gift; Emeria Shepherd; Exile and maybe some of the many Ajanis, Elspeths or Gideons. Finally, I reckon that 35 lands may even be a few too many, especially as most of them are basics. Might be worth cutting down to 30 and looking for some utility in cyclers/Emeria, The Sky Ruin/Detection Tower/Evolving Wilds etc. Could probably trade Path of Ancestry away too - it doesn't do much for you but is actually quite valuable!

Looks good! These may interest you: Scrapyard Recombiner (finds ballista), Mindless Automaton, Crystalline Crawler, Palace Jailer (this card is woefully underplayed. Jailer is interesting because you can flicker/reanimate it to stack the effect, exiling multiple creatures until you lose monarchy. and it provides card draw in white!), Cauldron of Souls, Luminous Broodmoth, Cradle of Vitality, Sunbond, Angelic Accord, Regna, the Redeemer, Bonders' Enclave, Throne of the High City, Tome of Legends, Bonder's Ornament, Ajani's Welcome, Karn's Bastion

Cool deck! You might like these: Cauldron of Souls, Luminous Broodmoth, Scrapyard Recombiner (finds Walking Ballista or Triskelion), Recruiter of the Guard, Sunbond, Cradle of Vitality, Angelic Accord, Regna, the Redeemer, Lapse of Certainty, Conqueror's Galleon Flip, Tome of Legends, Throne of the High City, Arch of Orazca, Bonders' Enclave, Toymaker (can turn Aetherflux Reservoir into a dude, then you can give it lifelink and win the game), Karn, Silver Golem, Karn, the Great Creator

Hey jlw157 - this is a good start! Lifegain decks can be a lot of fun. The main piece of advice I have would be to add more ways of turning your lifegain into offense. At the super-budget level, that probably means running the full playset of Ajani's Pridemate, at least two or thee Serene Steward, and possibly a couple of Sunbond. There are also a couple of fantastic budget cards in the last few sets for decks like this - see, especially, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun and Linden, the Steadfast Queen.
