At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal the top card of your library and put that card into your hand. You lose life equal to its converted mana cost.

Some changes im thinking about
overall these would lean the deck further into control and with the amount of card draw adds some needed increased hand size options

This should get you going
Mana fixing and Forestwalk Enabler-
Land count should come up closer to 33.

Sevinne's Reclamation since you're working with small targets Idol of Endurance really good later game draw that mostly functions parallel to Alesha to help you grind out the game and refil Agadeem's Awakening Flip is super good for multi target reanimation Lurrus of the Dream-Den seems like a great creature Dark Tutelage seems like a really good source of card draw when churning through low mana dudes Bishop of Rebirth is mostly a baby Sun Titan I Love Trove Warden for all the previous reasons
Really cool deck. Love Mardu and hatebear stax type stuff. I personally would drop the equipment and play more swarm finishers like Akroma's Will Cathars' Crusade or something similar you enjoy playing. I just feel like those are great finishers for stax type decks built around so many creatures.

Night's Whisper is 2 mana for 2 cards and considering black has lots of tutors to top it can combo well in most decks
Phyrexian Arena is a great card as is Dark Tutelage, Dark Confidant
all offer fantastic card vantage, however they don't draw the turn they come into play
they have to survive 2-3 rounds to get the card draw vs cost value and that doesn't always happen
thats what makes cards like Erebos, God of the Dead & Greed so tempting to run
yes they are higher cmc but they combo well with tutor to top spells providing instant responses to situations
while also providing the possibility of drawing 5+ cards at your opponents end step

I play a lot of black and have gotten away from both of these cards.
I find that Dark Tutelage Ruin Raider Dark Confidant and of course Phyrexian Arena and Necropotence are cards that I prefer and end up bumping out the others. I even will play Twilight Shepherd over these two.
People are afraid of paying life equal to the CMC, but your average CMC in an optimized list is going to be around 3 for your spells and then you'll have 35ish lands. So on average you'll end up paying about 2 life per card, which exactly what these two cards charge you.

Last_Laugh Thanks for the input. This is my first aggro deck so That may have been my problem in trying to barrel over a single person without protecting my investments. While Teferi's Protection is a bit out of my price range, i will consider what purpose it would serve in a deck. Scapegoat seems like a wonderful card to add though.
I wasn't sure about needing to cast my commander, but something about largely being locked out of playing him most of the time seemed like a sour note.
while i hadnt yet considered or known about Dark Prophecy, i did consider Dark Tutelage but ultimately took it out due to it killing me faster than prophecy would for less returns. Im also trying tooth and nail to avoid Necropotence solely for the price point, but i guess theres a reason for that. I do have Twilight Prophet as a must-have though.
And thank you for sharing your decklist! Funnily enough, i think you were the direct inspiration for Reconnaissance already being in my deck, which seems stupid-crazy useful for what i want to do.

Add Dark Tutelage for more draw. You can spare the life.
