Massacar I tried out Edgewalker and loved it. Thank you for the recommendation!

Edgewalker would be extremely good here.

I would also say with your CMC where it is you could probably afford to cut a land or two from the deck.

I'd take a look at this deck. Edgewalker is really good for a shadowborn apostles

I definitely agree with GoblinElectromancer's suggestions - Clerics were given a lot of new tools to actually win the game in the new set, rather than be supporting characters. I think you need 4x Angel of Destiny, 4x Fiend Hunter, and 4x Cleric of Life's Bond as a good lifegain and removal core. I also recommend 4x Soul Warden.

Here are some other good Clerics in addition to the above that you should consider. In general, I think going a lifegain, rather than a damage prevention, route will be more successful for you. There's a reason they've moved away from damage prevention in white.
Auriok Champion
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim
Bishop of Rebirth
Bygone Bishop
Edgewalker - but please don't buy any now, as they've spiked and will go back down.
Giver of Runes/Mother of Runes
Mangara, the Diplomat
Selfless Spirit

These cards I think are weak that you can definitely cut for new cards:
Daru Healer
Oriss, Samite Guardian
Pulsemage Advocate
Shieldmage Elder
Ancestor's Prophet
War Report

I think this list would benefit greatly from more cleric cards like Edgewalker and the like to give you more creatures that interact with your list and can be played sooner. Also edgewalker on its own makes your commander cost 2 colors less.

@Arthaiser: Correct, I only have creatures on the list that are known to perform at least decently or that are the only ones in that color combination (like the Wedges and Shards). Edgewalker has a cool ability that can be built around but doesn't provide an immediate engine or win condition, which is important for a lot of decks to function. Not saying it is a bad commander, but it has to find a way to do those things without the commander which puts it at a disadvantage against decks that have those things baked in.

Phyrexian Arena is better than Herald's Horn .

Anguished Unmaking is better than Utter End based on cmc reduction.

There is no excuse to not play Dark Ritual in this build.

Secret Salvage is worthless. I’ve attempted it in my own build many of times and it’s not as good as you’d think. Drop it off the Maybe board.

Carnival of Souls is a wonderful redundancy for Edgewalker .

Check out my Athreos build, Athreos, The Children of Shadows

I tried out Secret Salvage once again and was reminded of why I took it out the last time. Being left with all my Shadowborn Apostle in my hand is only good if I can play all or a large portion of them, or have no max hand size. The games rolled out with Edgewalker being killed off shortly after resolution and my life total to low to justify Carnival of Souls to help out in any way. Having to discard so many with no Immortal Servitude available for back up, or Necropotence on the field is an awful feeling.
