Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I'm not fully sure whether you want a Kokusho-focused deck with a lifegain subtheme, or a lifegain-focused deck with a Kokusho subtheme, so I'll give you tips for both:
You generally want a lot of ways to find your Kokushos, as well as ways to return them from the graveyard, so I'll focus on those two.
- Diabolic Tutor
- Razaketh's Rite
- Makeshift Mannequin
- Exhume (not Modern legal)
- Animate Dead (also not Modern legal)
- Rise from the Grave
- Obzedat's Aid
- Dread Return (also not Modern legal)
- Ever After
- Fearsome Awakening
- Karmic Guide (also not Modern legal)
If you're focused on more of a lifegain theme, I'd go with some of the following:
- Nyx-Fleece Ram
- Sun Droplet
- Tithe Drinker
- Ajani's Pridemate
- Survival Cache
- Felidar Sovereign
- Lone Missionary
- Chalice of Life Flip
- Aetherflux Reservoir
Regardless of which version you're actually looking for, I would also recommend adding in some more removal, probably at least 5 copies total of the following: Doom Blade, Murder, Oust, Condemn, Dismember.
In any case, good luck with your deck!

meowndabout, I have been torn about the fact that this list is very, very long, yet more expensive cards like that one are missing from the list (even though their high cmc is not because of their inefficiency, but rather to balance out the fact that they return cards directly to the battlefield; in fact, I almost always would rather have Zombify over Raise Dead)
So I gave it some more thought, and I think if this list is going to be useful, it has to be short enough that it doesn't show too many strictly worse cards but also long enough to include the best ones.
I'm in the process of updating the list, and will tag you again when it's done.
Thank you for the comment, because the mere question about Obzedat's Aid led me down a path of inquiry and discovery to refine this list.

Hm. Whilst I like the idea of Gisa and Geralf and reviving my creatures, I don't see myself doing that often here, as I mostly derive creatures from non-creature cards, and as such, they may hurt me more than help.
And as for Stir the Sands... you're probably right. It is a bit iffy to have out there, so I think I'll remove it for now.

What about some Cemetery Reaper or Gisa and Geralf? I sadly need to say that i dont like Stir the Sands because it is so expensive, also if you cycle it its meh in my eyes. Also Rise from the Grave could be swaped with Zombify for a cheaper revive if you want. I hate expensive cards because often you dont have enough mana to play more then one card in a bad situation...

I would use the big spells at least that bring them all back like Living Death and Patriarch's Bidding as well as Rise of the Dark Realms. Some good single recursion cards are Zombify and Fearsome Awakening for flavor. Necromancy and Animate Dead are great cards as well.

Forgotten Creation is a great card. I would put it in the deck from the maybe board. It can do two things: draw cards and stack your graveyard. To the second effect I would add more cards like Living Death such as Twilight's Call or Zombify to recur creatures from the grave.
