Boon Reflection Discussion

In this scenario, one player has 20 life and another player has 10 life. The player with 10 life controls both Boon Reflection and Wound Reflection and then casts Reverse the Sands, giving themselves 20 life and the other player 10 life.
Is each player considered to have gained or lost life, in this scenario? Will the abilities of the enchantments work with redistributing the life totals?

Too many lands. Cut 3-4.
Ajani's Mantra is bad.
Ajani's Welcome isn't needed here in my opinion, if you really want this kind of effect put in Soul's Attendant since it gives you life off of Cleric of Life's Bond. I probably wouldn't add either though.
Brave the Sands probably not worth it.
Cradle of Vitality . Even worse than Boon Reflection. Costs 4 mana to get it out and then requires a 2 mana investment everytime for not that much payoff.

Right off the cuff I would cut Blood Seeker , Voracious Vampire and Brave the Sands as they dont help you win with your life shenanigans. Keeping 1 copy of Blood Seeker may be decent against token or creature decks but that's up to you. Blood Burglar to me seems like a sub-optimal version of Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tithe Drinker so I would swap those. If you have the wallet, Exquisite Blood makes you go infinite with Vito so its an easy swap with Boon Reflection and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is insane, especially when combined with cards like Champion of Dusk and Sanctum Seeker . Indulging Patrician and Silversmote Ghoul is a path if you can consistently get to 3 life each turn. Some copies of Fatal Push or Heartless Act may do you some good because spot removal is nice in modern. You could also be spicy and go Abiding Grace + some decent one drops like Knight of the Ebon Legion , Indulgent Aristocrat , Guul Draz Assassin , Guul Draz Vampire and Vampire Cutthroat . That aside, Nighthawk Scavenger , Blood Artist , Legion's Landing Flip, Legion Lieutenant , and Drana's Emissary seem like they would fit nicely. I might cut some Cleric of life's bond as well, because its almost purely overshadowed by faster growing cards like Ajani's Pridemate and Sprite Dragon atm. I might also consider cutting 1 Boon Reflection and 1-2 lands to fit the mana curve a little more nicely. A lot of these are just pure suggestions, so the choice on what path is up to you. All in all, very cool deck. I am a big fan of trying to make Vito work, I hope you are successful in your journey and I hope this helps.

I really like this theme, I have a similar one called Angel cleric lifegain from which I’m drawing suggestions.
The way I see it your win-condition is “gain lots of life and then attack with Angel of Destiny ”. So you need to gain lots of life.
I would go 4-of Righteous Valkyrie and Speaker of the Heavens , and add 4-of Bishop of Wings as another method to gain life when angels enter the battlefield. Then, I’d consider some cards for gaining life. Revitalize and Renewed Faith are both good, but I really love Rest for the Weary because you can easily turn on your Speaker on turn 2 and then start pumping out angels.
Other cards to consider include Resplendent Angel to add another angel each turn, Boon Reflection or Rhox Faithmender to double lifegain, or perhaps even Entreat the Angels as an alternative win-con that will also net you life if you have one of the many “gain life with angels” out on the battlefield.

Your average CMC supports going to 35 lands.
There is no reason to not put in Smothering Tithe unless its to expensive price wise.
Teferi's Protection should go in if you can afford one.
Boon Reflection might be something you want to consider.
