If you're going for tribal "you win" cards in esper there is always Test of Endurance.

spicy idea: could run Galvanoth.
Love the stuffy doll idea.

Wow I am behind on comments!
Deck updated everyone! Check it out!
thrane Hi! Thank you! I have considered all of those! Shielded by Faith will be tested out soon, the rest I don't like. Sunbird's Invocation in particular I find interesting but am hesitant to try it. It costs a lot mana-wise for inconsistent results. I covered Sunbond in the primer: "This deck isn't really all that into attacking or going tall, and the two-for-one potential makes me nervous." Thanks for the comment!
Furiosto thanks for the commant! I went over him in the primer: "The "you win the game if you have X life" cards: Felidar Sovereign, Test of Endurance, Celestial Convergence and cards like them are boring ways to win. I've played with them, and every time they are played they either do nothing, warp the game in an unfun way, and/or actually work, winning me the game in the most anti-climatic way possible. I want to win the game. I don't want one of my cards to do it for me."
Rabid_Wombat Hi! I don't run enough colored spells to make them all that helpful. With so many artifacts and spells like Lightning Helix that they don't help, I feel I'm better served by a Coldsteel Heart and the like. Thanks!

I dig it.. But need some sort of win condition or.. maybe something like Mechanized Production or Test of Endurance if you had some sort of life gain mechanic.. Or even 1 unblockable creature just to get through and ping opponents.
Other than that, I also really like Overwhelming Splendor for this deck

Treasonous Ogre is some of the best ramp a life gain deck can have, it will cover all your generic and red costs.
Book of Rass will provide card draw, goes great with the ogre and a really high life total for drawing more than you will ever need.
Well of Lost Dreams more cards!
I'm sure there are more things that give an effect for spending or having a high life total. Try scryfall's advanced search looking for things that include "pay" "life" scryfall allows you to only include things that match the commander's color identity.

Ok so here is my problem with Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance. Yes they are good win cons but IMO I would get rid of them. I know that if I were playing against that deck it would annoy me personally if you played that because it's just a me thing especially if you go to ramp city early game. But also a few options to look at is basically all the Ajani planeswalkers. Most of their skills are based on your life total. Also for early game protection do a Ghostly Prison and maybe an Enlightened Tutor to search for something you need.

It's a good idea, but I don't know how well it actually fits. It's a very high cost and a long suspend. It works with Aetherflux Reservoir Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance, but unless i have Vedalken Orrery it's hard to see it work. If i don't have any of those 3, it definitely keeps me alive, but in my mind it's a lightning bolt for 9 mana.
I'll keep it in mind when i get to do some actual tests and do some edits though, thanks for the suggestion
