firon94 Good targeted suggestion, funny you should mention the card its the one card i think about everytime i go to remove a card to add one... When i do the thoughts that comes to me are a few...
Board wipe prevention
When Thrumming stone goes off and my life is low i can sac to gain life, to dig the deck and cast anything needed
Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose is kinda like him if that's the card you were referring to but there is a difference. Vito Makes people lose life when i gain life, does nothing when my creatures leave the field.
I'm in the middle of commenting on your Genesis wave deck. Which also happens to be a favorite of mine.

I'd say green is, in 60-card, the best for huge bursts of life.
White has lifegain tacked to creatures, so it's also pretty good in 60-card.
If you want lots of real life gain that works MD, you want Black. In 60-card you get Sovereign's Bite, Collective Brutality and Alms of the Vein. In EDH and 60-card Aristocrats builds, you get Blood Artist effects.
But did you know that artifacts are pretty darned good at gaining life? A lot of the best lifegain engines are artifacts.

Whip of Erebos -> Nightmare Shepherd The whip looks better than it actually is. I don't usually attack so the "lifelink" aspect is basically useless. The reanimation effect is too expensive, The Shepherd looks more efficient at what it is supposed to do.
Phyrexian Altar, Tombstone Stairwell -> Ashnod's Altar, Nim Deathmantle The point here is to include an infinite combo with creatures like Sengir Autocrat, Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Chittering Witch. Basically you can keep recasting the creature thanks to the Nim Deathmantle by sacrificing the tokens to the Ashnod's Altar. With a Blood Artist effect on the table is game over. Not the most efficient combo in here, but a solution that may become the backup plan.
This is the closest built from the final version of the deck i had in mind when i started building it. The last two changes would be Phyrexian Arena -> Necropotence and Necroskitter -> Contamination. I don't know If i want to get there because this deck looks pretty good imo as it is now.

Blood Artist is a staple in anything where you want things to die. Theres also the payoff for soul sisters Serra Ascendant which is just generically good in commander. Free sac outlets are your best friend Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder do the trick and provide decent value. You're gunna have a rough time finding removal more efficient than Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares. Lastly, though it's a bit gimmicky and everyone has done it Sanguine Bond with Exquisite Blood is an easy way to end things if you're into that.

you have tons of ways to benefit from sacing creatures, but you’re never actually gunna have that many creatures to sac. With only 1/3 of the deck being creatures, and with no way to recur them, it’s going to be hard to gain traction. Something like Gravecrawler would go a long way here.
the full playset of Demon of Death's Gate feels excessive. Drawing a second one is almost certainly a dead card. Running more than 2 in the deck feels risky to me.
have you considered more cards that like to be around lots of corpses? I’m referring to stuff like Blood Artist & friends.
21 lands feels on the low side, considering you have 3 & 4 drops. However, in this instance id say don’t add more lands, just drop those 3 and 4 drop cards for more cmc1 and 2 creatures, so you can capitalise off your decks aggression

Looks like a standard casual build. I'll reccomend running Nature's Claim, Assassin's Trophy, Blood Artist, Lesser Masticore,Footsteps of the Goryo, Protean Hulk, Apprentice Necromancer, Necromancy, Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - though a few of these I'll only suggest running them if you're looking to up the power like hulk and mikaeus the unhallowed
