K4m4r0 if boardwipes are really that common in your meta, how about using them instead of fighting them instead? Since Supreme Verdict is also a thing, why not, instead of counters, run, in addition to Heroic Intervention, cards like Ghostway, Eerie Interlude, Ajani's Presence, Dauntless Escort(though less of a blowout if they see it coming) and Selfless Spirit? Mabye not all of them, but I guess you get the point. The flicker ones are especially great with some of the ETB effects, like Wall of Omens; however if your opponents have creatures that survice a wipe too, you face their creatures without blockers.

I love this deck and the way you built it. It is effective and deals tons of damage. But there's also one thing I hate about it. You don't run enough non-walls or protection for Arcedes. My playgroup runs tons of removal and if they saw that their Swords to Plowshares will make 3 7/7 beaters into 0/7 walls, they are sure as hell going to do that. And once Arcedes dies 4 times, at 12 mana, he's gonna be nearly uncastable. I'd run at least Heroic Intervention Lightning Greaves Swiftfoot Boots and Alexi's Cloak or the likes to cheaply and effectivly protect him. Maybe even Darksteel Plate but I personally would abstain from that, since it doesn't protect against exiles, which are everywhere in EDH. Other than that, great deck!

How strong are the decks you face? How strong do you want to make it. Also Oloro can be so many things. As far as I got it, your plan is to get some life here and there, to be able to draw cards off of Oloro and then win via some combo you don't actively search for or combat damage. Also what's your budget?
First low budget steps would be to add in all signets and talismans in your color(they all cost 2 and make 1 mana right away). They are the best colored accelerators esper has. Then there's also Mana Crypt and Mana Vault if you want way too much mana quickly.
Second: Pick a strategy. If it's beatdown + refill with Oloro from lifelink then go all in for that. If you want to win via Felidar Guardian or the nifty Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond combos make sure to add in the good black tutors Vampiric Tutor Demonic Tutor and Grim Tutor for example. To gain the life for felidar maybe run Beacon of Immortality. If you don't want to go for a combo directly, then I'd suggest focus more on effective creatures. Sure the soulsisters make a life for every creature, but what if your creatures on board can't attack and you can't play any more? Also taxing yourself for each creature played might not be ideal either. A fun way to make sure your creatures are always effective are the Archetypes from theros, and all of them in esper are great! Archetype of Courage, Archetype of Imagination and Archetype of Finality are all great for a deck that wants to attack. Also True Conviction does exactly what you want in this plan :)
Tell us a little as to what you wanna do with your deck and what your meta is; then I can provide better help. Also imho you don't run enough removal but that's to be added in when we know more :)
