Trading Post - 4 life each turn, and bunches of synergy options.

Hey I saw your link on FB!
Since your wincon is combo, I suggest you add something to protect it against removal or counterspells such as Imp's Mischief. It's SO versatile and should be in most black decks. Stop counter spells, redirect removal, change extra turns, etc....
For my own understanding, you use ivory tower in conjunction with necro, and greed to draw cards and gain life to draw more cards? How has that been working out for you? Also, what are your thought for Erebos, God of the Dead replacing greed? You have to pay twice the amount of mana for card draw, but it's indestrucitable and stops life gain strategies (Oloro). Not recommending this per se but curious to hear your input on this.
How do you deal with artifacts and enchantments? All I see is gate to phyrexia which is great, but I feel there are more broad answers you could utilize in black to help mitigate your weakness or artifact and enchantment removal. Suggestions include the following.... Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated, All Is Dust, Nevinyrral's Disk,Oblivion Stone. Other budget options include Scour from Existence, Ratchet Bomb, Unstable Obelisk, Spine of Ish Sah
Something to note re: Spine of Ish Sah is that it synergizes with Trading Post. Trading post can add redundancy to contamination (bitter blossom, reassembling). The post also helps you create blockers in a pinch, and provides artifact recursion (should you need it).
You seem to run a lock of deck hate cards. I'm assuming you're versing combo? If so, you might want to lower your AVG CMC to help race against them, especially against storm (or those decks that are not creature based)
I love Xiahou Dun and am always finding more ways to tinker with him. If you want some more inspiration, feel free to look at my deck Xiahou Dun Deck (note sideboard/wishboard for other potential additions).

You guys ever hear of a swap meet? ;)
Swap Meet enters the battlefield tapped.
: Swap two creatures you control. (To Swap, exchange all states between these two permanents. States include tapped, untapped, attacking, blocking, equipped, enchanted, and the target of any spell or ability. Swapping does not move counters, zones, or damage.)
And no, it doesn't involve a fishbowl full of car keys <3 it's an event where you can bring things like power tools, car parts, guns, and art and swap owners of it. Basically one giant garage sale where you trade for property rather than cash.
Pick one: Make a brand new Trading Post or make a new card using Swap. I made a few alterations to what can and can not be moved around.

I would look into some card draw, since you are running low CMC cards such as Signal Pest, Springleaf Drum, Ornithopter, Memnite, and Mox Opal. That's twenty cards at CMC 1 or lower, plus twenty free lands...Maybe Expose Evil (clues are artifacts, so any investigate cards would work), Pirate's Pillage, Frantic Salvage, or Origin Spellbomb.Serum Tank would run well, as would Tamiyo's Journal or Trading Post.You could also run Nahiri, the Harbinger for a control/search element.

If you wanted to streamline it a little more, I'd say
remove one Nyx-Fleece Ram it's just a wall/life gain anyway
remove a Trading Post because it's an inefficient token generator
That puts the deck at 61 or 62 depending on the how many Soul Warden you removed
Not a regular white player but if there is an enchantment that lets you draw cards, I'd consider it

Also I realized that you have almost no draw. Black has a lot of card draw. Don't be put off by the lifeloss tacked on to a lot of black card draw spells (Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, Promise of Power, Night's Whisper, Damnable Pact, Greed, Erebos, God of the Dead. You'll need 6-8 draw spells. Looting effects on creatures and Key to the City, Trading Post are also good to suddenly drop a juicy reanimation target into your GY at your opponents' end step.
