I've made several versions of EDH decks around the Teysa's and token spawns. Some neat stuff you can do;

It's your boy Jason.

Here's a bunch of cards that should be less than $1 that I think could be possible additions. Feel free to ignore me. Also this is Zach: Zjadler and this is Stephen: icefrigi if you want to check out their decks.

TriusMalarky on Lifegain cards

On the note of lifegain, life is far and away one of the least important resources in the game. It's only relevant against aggro or if you are actively using it as a resource with, for example, Ad Nauseam or Sign in Blood.

There are two main reasons to include lifegain: either you get advantages with cards like Ajani's Pridemate, Griffin Aerie, Resplendent Angel, etc., in which case you mostly want creatures with lifegain or Fountain of Renewal. Otherwise, you're looking at effects like Lone Missionary, Arashin Cleric or Life Goes On/Chaplain's Blessing as sideboard cards against aggro.

A simple change that should give your creatures more attack power would be to drop 1 each of Giant Killer, Linden, the Steadfast Queen and Selfless Savior to bring in Felidar Retreat and have your creatures gaining +1/+1 counters with every landfall.

I would at least build a side-board around Basri's Acolyte, Basri's Solidarity, Griffin Aerie and Speaker of the Heavens with life-gain instants like Light of Hope and Revitalize. Yes, I know that you have run out of card slots and you might have to drop 2 creatures to enable the major change that can get you generating a range of useful token creatures.

If we can get more consistent early game life gain, then the combination of Speaker of the Heavens and Griffin Aerie can start generating a number of useful tokens. Although I really like Angel of Destiny it might be a little slow to reach a win-con.

I view Tavern Swindler and Feed the Swarm as the weaker cards in the deck that can be removed for 2 Light of Hope and 3 Speaker of the Heavens. If you are going to use Hagra Mauling  Flip as a land, then you still need Heartless Act for some extra removal. I think that we probably still need to add some extra life gain.

I love Griffin Aerie in this deck, and Heliod, Sun-Crowned also works wonders

You could definitely add some pay offs for your life gain triggers like Dawn of Hope, Well of Lost Dreams, Cliffhaven Vampire, and Boon Reflection.

There are also tons of other cards that get counters when you gain life such as, Sunbond, Light of Promise, Ajani's Pridemate, Wall of Limbs, and Bloodthirsty Aerialist which can all become problems very quickly since its per trigger of life gain.

You could also look into more spells that trigger at the end of turn if you gained a certain amount of life. Resplendent Angel, Regna, the Redeemer, Regal Bloodlord, Angelic Accord, the new Witch of the Moors, and Griffin Aerie.

And then adding more consistent forms of life gain will let you get more triggers therefore making you a bigger threat. Drana's Emissary, Shattered Angel, Soulmender, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Ajani's Mantra, Ajani Goldmane, and Palace Siege.

Finally, I've seen enough people win with Felidar Sovereign not to recommend it to any life gain deck.
