Seems like you don't really have a win-con other than creature damage, which sometimes wont work if you're playing a token deck or something of that sort. you're gaining a ton of life, so I've got a couple suggestions. Aetherflux Reservoir is a great card for life gain decks and lets you shut down your opponents immediately, and it's especially easy in commander. One of my playgroups favorite combos is Wall of Reverence+Serra Avatar, lets you double your life total every turn. I's also recommend Detention Sphere, good to take care of commanders. some other cards are Venser's Journal and Well of Lost Dreams, as well as Alhammarret's Archive and Maze of Ith. I'll probably think of more suggestions in a sec. Great deck tho!

Cool creature list. I also love seeing Fractured Identity.
Have you tested with Authority of the Consuls or War Tax? Well-Laid Plans might be fun. There are funkier enchantments, too, but they would keep you from casting multiple spells per turn to trigger Reservoir.
Cyclonic Rift might test well.
Since you want to cast spells to trigger Reservoir, Arcane Laboratory is probably out, as is Rule of Law. However, you could add creatures with life-gain triggers like Nyx-Fleece Ram, Wall of Reverence, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Suture Priest, and Healer of the Pride, along with an Archangel of Thune, for value. Maybe also Beacon of Immortality and Invincible Hymn. A Felidar Sovereign?

I recommend Serra Avatar, because with Wall of Reverence and Sanguine Bond out, you double your life total each turn and deal that much damage to an opponent directly. pretty fun combo, one of my friends' favorites.

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.

@chadsansing: Liliana, the Last Hope, Auriok Champion, and Archangel of Thune are all too expensive for this deck, and Pious Evangel
Flip seems like a worse and more expensive version of a lot of cards already in the deck. I have though been looking into Nyx-Fleece Ram, Wall of Reverence, and Authority of the Consuls and they seem pretty good.
@KINGofORESKOS: Vona, Butcher of Magan seems like an amazing removal option and as a vampire it would help with Blood Tribute. The only downside is the cost. I already own most of this deck and am looking to change it, but I am trying to keep most changes at most a dollar or two and I already have pretty strong removal. This definitely is a card I will keep in mind for future upgrades though
