Creature — Human Cleric
Cleric spells you cast cost (White)(Black) less to cast. This effect reduces only the amount of colored mana you pay. (For example, if you cast a Cleric spell with mana cost 1(White), it costs 1 to cast.)

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.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim
Bishop of Rebirth
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

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.

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.

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.
