Whenever you gain life, draw a card.

What do you think about Well of Lost Dreams or Dawn of Hope to take better advantage of cards like Spectrum Sentinel or Daxos who will often gain life on your opponent’s turns? I had them both in my original list, but found I was mostly gaining life on my turn and wanted the extra slots instead of redundancy. Food for thought though.
If you do add the Horizon Chimera and Drogskol Reaver combo, be sure to leave a few mana open to Valorous Stance your own Reaver to stop it! Or have Thassa's Oracle out before you start! Would hate to die in an unstoppable loop hahaha love it
Please give an upvote to my Shanna deck if you can!

You can also definitely drop 2-3 lands with your mana curve,

They are considerations of course. However a lot of them require me to build too linear like with adding Epicure of Blood and Cliffhaven Vampire. They’re absolutely great cards and if I wasn’t trying to be more adaptive in my deck building style and wanted to fine point the lifegain/loss strategy I’d absolutely add them. Same goes for Oloro, Ageless Ascetic lovely card but I don’t want to focus exclusively on lifegain/loss strategy. I know most people say to focus exclusively on a specific strategy but that’s just not my play style anymore. I like versatility and surprise! Haha
Lich's Mastery and Drogskol Reaver are great cards and easy wins. But I just don’t like playing like that with my friends so I stay away from those sort of things. I have added Peer into the Abyss and Necrologia as quick wins but more fair in my opinion.
Bone Miser and Psychosis Crawler are in my consideration pile in my deck box actually haha so you’re right on the money there! I’m also considering Shabraz, the Skyshark Flip. I think I may be adding Sakashima the Impostor to my ninja deck now that you mention it.
Shadow of the Grave is a lovely card. I just always cut it at the final round of cuts for some reason. It’s in my maybe pile in my deck box though for sure. I still have to play test and work out the kinks of gameplay. So it may still make the cut in the end.
Bag of Holding would be lovely if it weren’t so easily destroyed. It’s also counterintuitive to the reanimator subtheme I have going in the deck.
Thank you so much for all your suggestions! It definitely reinforced some of my considerations :)

Hi wideline1414! Right now, I am trying it out. It does have a few synergies with my Commander and a few cards in the deck. If I were to add back in Drogskol Reaver it would cause an infinite loop that would deck myself. If I had Jace, Wielder of Mysteries out at that time, it would be an instant win most likely. I don't know if Queza will stay in at this moment, just trying it out for now.

I think the key thing with Oloro is figuring out the direction you want to take him, as he can be played many ways. In any deck, you want to gain life and use life as a resource to do what your deck already wants to do. So, in addition to some of the cards you have here, people tend to play things like Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, Dawn of Hope, Eye of Vecna, and Cosmos Elixir that draw cards off of lifegain or pay life to get cards. They then try to multiply these effects with cards like Teferi's Ageless Insight and Alhammarret's Archive. The Soul Sisters (Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant do a lot of work towards gaining this life as well.
Beyond that, there are several approaches towards winning. One is the pillowfort control/disruptive aggro approach. This type of deck uses pillowfort cards like Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Norn's Annex, and Crawlspace or Sphere of Safety (if you have a lot of enchantments) in order to keep attackers from messing with you. They then use counter-spells and removal to keep other players from winning, and win by attacking in the air with large creatures who often have lifelink, with cards like Dream Trawler, Serra Ascendant, Archangel of Thune, and Drogskol Reaver being optimal choices.
I'll post the other option in a second.

Drogskol Reaver for sure
Monastery Mentor if they had partner
Mantis Rider for fun.
Orcish Lumberjack for even more fun.
If there's already strict upgrades actually out there then I'll just claim it's for nostalgia's sake,
But also let me know what they are haha
