Vizkopa Guildmage Discussion

Sorry for the hiatus everyone, it's us college-folk's spring break. Thank you for the new lists!
@rumpy I put your list under "Other" temporarily. Please feel welcome to make a case if you think your deck belongs in the "Most Optimized" slot instead :)

I see the deck seems to also want to amass tokens, so Anointed Procession would be a good one to look in to. If you want lifegain, while keeping your CMC the same, replace Sacred Cat with Soul Warden as it will net you life when creatures ETB. Vizkopa Guildmage can act as a replacement for the Sanguine Bond+Exquisite Blood combo, so you can remove Tavern Swindler. Want to stop Haste creatures? Then Authority of the Consuls is right up your alley!

Nice deck! I've been thinking about building Karlov and I had a couple questions about your top end choices. Personally I'm not big on cards like Baneslayer Angel and Divinity of Pride that are just big blocks of stats; how have they worked out for you? I'm also concerned Pontiff of Blight, Righteous Confluence, and Sorin Markov wouldn't give you your mana's worth. Have they performed well for you?
I have a couple cards not in your list I'm thinking about and I'd be curious to hear your opinion of them. I'm a big fan of Weathered Wayfarer in any white deck without green. Defiant Bloodlord, Rhox Faithmender and Wall of Reverence all seem like natural fits in Orzhov lifegain strategies. I recommend Ashes of the Abhorrent as dual purpose graveyard hate and extra lifegain triggers, and speaking of lifegain triggers this may be a good home for Curse of Vitality. Finally as a different top end threat I think True Conviction is really powerful here.
I saw you are trying to avoid infinite combos and chose only the Sanguine Bond half of the lifedrain combo. Has that worked out for you or have you considered swapping for the Exquisite Blood half instead? Also, if you're already playing Sanguine Bond I don't think Vizkopa Guildmage would create any infinite combos it wouldn't as well.

Love the deck! Here's some random thoughts.
Vizkopa Guildmage is also fun.
Wall of Shards Has the chance to be ridiculous
I actually have a Martyr-Proc deck that literally started out as a Tainted Remedy deck, but ended up taking the fundamentals and adding a ton more lifegain. Check ti out! WB Martyr Pain & Proc

I like the idea of a vampire subtheme, it unintentionally works very well with what I feel like you're trying to do, and there's a ton of great support and synergy from the precon and ixalan stuff.
