Frozen AEther has very little synergy with the rest of the deck

Greater Auramancy the card is good and great enchantment protection but it is not needed here

Sphere of Safety not enough synergy for the deck, I would say good in a 20+ enchantment deck, otherwise just use Ghostly Prison or Norn's Annex

Hedron Archive the card draw is nice but you have card draw built into your commander, I would use the 3 cost mana rock that taps for 2. Worn Powerstone

Burnished Hart maybe, good ramp for your colors, but is just a maybe

Solemn Simulacrum very good, but I think you can have a better card in the spot, no real way to abuse/recure him

Vampiric Tutor great card but more of a legacy card. I would use Demonic Tutor which also has no card disadvantage

Mystical Tutor same as above, Merchant Scroll

Enlightened Tutor same as above Idyllic Tutor

Cut 3 lands (dont need fetches, they are nice but not a necessity Polluted Delta , Marsh Flats , Flooded Strand , Prismatic Vista , Silent Clearing )

Some notable cards I would include are Sphinx's Revelation , Suture Priest , Auriok Champion

Crested Sunmare is an auto-include in any Oloro deck. Such a good card.

If you're looking to have a fairly interactive deck with Oloro at the helm, I recommend any creature that does things when you gain life. Oloro naturally pushes you in the direction of control, which is fine for some, but I think something more along the lines of midrange is more fun for a newer player as I have found from personal experience. Archangel of Thune , Angel of Vitality , Serra Avatar , Drogskol Reaver , and Resplendent Angel are all great examples of these types of cards. Karlov of the Ghost Council is also an amazing card that is easily abused in Oloro.

If you're looking for more lifegain and drain stuff, Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a really good one, as is Vizkopa Guildmage , Suture Priest , Twilight Prophet , and Exsanguinate .

I can't really think of anything else off the top of my head but from one Oloro player to another, I hope you have fun.

Syr Konrad, the Grim works well in this deck. Why Suture Priest though? It's a similar effect to what you want, but it isn't quite. Pitiless Pontiff is a little low-impact, but it's a sac outlet (like you need another) and can surprise your opponents sometimes. Witch's Oven also very low-impact, but worth a few seconds consideration.

Hey brotherbaker would you be open to suggestions for this deck?

Such as cutting the Soulmender s and putting in some Soul's Attendant s?

Cutting some of those Artifacts and Enchantments and making room for some Suture Priest s and Chalice of Life  Flip?

Life Gain was one of the first decks I made when i got back into Mtg. It was a lot of fun

I only see a couple of black cards. Do you want it to be black and white or just white? I would figure that out first. If black and white....

Suture Priest instead of Soul Warden you are going to be the one making creatures you don't need them to put creatures in the field to gain life, but punishing them for casting creatures imo is better. Plus it works with Exquisite Blood which i would also get Sanguine Bond like someone else mentioned.... because its infinite. Also Blood Seeker , and Blood Artist if you plan on wiping their creatures or even yours.

If the deck is budget and can't afford fetch lands, Windswept Heath is cheaper than all the fetch lands and can fetch your plains, which includes the shock lands. For mana base you could get rid of the cards that say land and grab Plains/Swamp for example Godless Shrine . There is also the lands that enter and gain you life.

I would include Anointed Procession in any white token deck, especially since it makes Cathars' Crusade tick

maybe Divine Visitation ?

I appologize for not knowing some of the names. I am a green player, I could tell you all sorts of cards if you were green white, but thats not your color scheme

A soul sister deck would give your friend a bit of trouble. If he's using Krovikan Mist , he's got a pretty heavy creature list. Could use more info on his playstyle. I wager he's going straight up aggro using dudes like Phantasmal Bear , Vapor Snag and Phantasmal Dragon but I could also see him doing something more control-like with Riftwing Cloudskate , Draining Whelk , meloku the cloud mirror and Counterspell since it sounds like he's pretty annoying.

A mid-range life gaining deck sounds like it will consistently give you more turns to play bigger threats and overall be winning more games. Blue has a lot of problem solving cards so I wouldn't rely on a single card to win you a game, especially if it can get countered. I'd lean more to redundancy and playing relevant cards.

Strategies that use creatures like Soul Warden , Thragtusk or making a deck around that new card Bishop of Wings since angels can block flyers or Suture Priest or Gray Merchant of Asphodel

First bring your land count down to 35, 37 at the most.

I suggest removing Reveal in riches. Without the ability to play it at flash speed the odds of playing it on your turn and having it still on the board by the time your turn comes around again is slim to none. Cathars' Crusade , has nearly no value in a aristocrats build. Teysa, Orzhov Scion , she is best used as a commander for an infinite combo build. Suture Priest , unless you are going for some lifegain win con this seems pretty useless. Cliffhaven Vampire , it has nothing that synergizes with your commander. Mortify , don't need it so long as you have Archon of Justice , Anguished Unmaking and Utter End in your deck. You could add Generous Gift if you wanted to. Unmake , creature target only, leaves it limited in it's use.
