I don't want to make Crucible Lands (HOU) public yet, because it features a leaked card. But I shared it out to you and Argy and you should be able to see it. If you get a chance, I'd VERY much appreciate your thoughts. Seems to have kind of a slow start, but this a BRAND new archetype to me, so I'm not sure if it needs more more ramp, or Control, or what. No worries at all if you can't get to it, and thanks tons if you can!

Okay. First thing is first. If you want to be running six and seven drops in modern, you need one of three things. Either be 1) a ramp deck but if you're doing that why aren't you playing tron, 2) be a control deck, or 3) be cheating them into play. This deck is none of those things. Soul sisters is traditionally a much more aggro/midrange deck, so usually, anything above five mana is usually out of the question. Alternatively, if you want to be RELIABLY casting these expensive spells, you would need more like 27 to 29 lands. Check out this article, or this article for my reasoning behind that.
Second thing. Consistancy. If you want to have a reasonable fighting chance from game to game in any format, you need a TON of redundancy. Take a look these top tier decks for instance. The only deck that has a one of in the main board besides lands is burn, and its a hyper conditional creature. You currently have 14 one ofs in your main, meaning that your deck will be wildly different everytime you play, so your deck will hardly ever have a "favorable" matchup, as you can't predict that cards that you will be drawing.
Now some thoughts on some specific cards.
Honor of the Pure. Seriously why are you not running this card. This card is great in multiples, anthems your entire team, and allows you to beat down with more creatures. It's actually just better than either Always Watching or Spear of Heliod.
Lingering Souls requires a black splash, but Spectral Procession, Triplicate Spirits, Secure the Wastes, or Midnight Haunting all allow you to create armies of tokens, all of which trigger the sisters, growing your pridemate, and with Honor of the Pure, help chip away at the opponent's life total.
If budget isn't a concern, Auriok Champion is broken in this deck, having protection against the two most relavent colours of removal, AND acting as another copy of a sister.
To help with the control decks, cards like Proclamation of Rebirth allow you to get your most relavent creatures back from the grave (sisters and serra ascendant), while cards like Dusk / Dawn or Return to the Ranks also get back the pridemate. However, control decks or decks with sweeper have and always will be a tough matchup for sisters. Brave the Elements or Selfless Spirit like clayperce mentioned do help though.
Windbrisk Heights gives you a source of card advantage, as the deck can usually get to 3 attacking creatures fairly easily, while sisters NEEDS Ghost Quarter to have any sort of a chance against tron.
Hopefully some of this helps!
