At the beginning of your end step, if you gained 3 or more life this turn, create a 2/2 white Griffin creature token with flying.

Soul Partition force an opponent to eat Kambal tax on an artifact, enchantment or planeswalker.
Feed the Swarm is awful when you have access to white. Maybe Vanishing Verse or Vindicate.
Kunoros, Hound of Athreos brutal hatebear. You are in Orzhov and not running reanimator. Take advantage of this. The lifelink feeds your strategy.
Archivist of Oghma and Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim are on theme.
Mirage Mirror Orzhov clone.
Angelic Accord is awesome. Griffin Aerie is not.

This deck feels really good at churning out low-cost enchantments, so any constellation effect would probably be pretty good. Setessan Champion is good since it gets buffed and gives you more draw (which you're clearly fond of), and Archon of Sun's Grace is a good way to make an army of 2/2 flyers. Hallowed Haunting or Katilda, dawnheart martyr would also totally work.
I would also suggest something to reward you for all this draw, but all of the cards I can think of to do this are blue or on paper. I know for a fact white can do this, but Idunno.
Honestly, this looks like a borderline life gain deck, so throwing in Archon along with Nexus Wardens (Or that one white spirit from the D&D set whose name I cannot recall for the life of me), Heliod, Sun-Crowned, and maybe Cleric Class or Griffin Aerie to tie it all together. Granted, that's quite a few new cards and it may as well be a new deck, lol.
P.S. I've been meaning to make a lifegain/enchantment deck for a while, so that probably explains the two paragraphs of cards, lol. P.P.S Colossification is always fun.

Here are some enchantments you can throw in that fit in with the theme of this deck perfectly. If you're attacking with little weenies with your commander out you are essentially trading 1/1's for more 1/1's, 2/2's, 3/3's or 4/4's with flying.
Angelic Accord: Note this happens at EACH end step. So if you can gain 4 life either by blocking with a lifelink creature with 4 power or gain 4 life on your opponent's turn you spit out another 4/4 angel.
The Book of Exalted Deeds: 3/3 angels? Weird but hey, free angels! Also gives an effect that prevents you from losing and your opponents from winning.
Griffin Aerie: Gain 3 life on your turn, win a free 2/2 griffin with flying
Valkyrie Harbinger: Again this is at EACH end step. 6 CMC though but creates 4/4 angels.
Regna, the Redeemer: Also EACH end step but is for ANY lifegain. Spits out 2 1/1's but is also 6 CMC
Resplendent Angel: for a $21 angel if you gain 5 life at EACH end step you will get a 4/4 angel. Aggressively costed at a low 3 CMC.

Celestial Colonnade is only really played in hard-control decks that generally lack any other practical ways to win. In general, i'd say ditch all of your taplands and just ru basics. You'll find that a land coming in tapped will trip up your tempo faaar too often, and with your current card selection I don't see you having many issues at all just running basics anyway. If you are wanting a better manabase on a sudo-budget, I'd suggest getting cards like Glacial Fortress, Adarkar Wastes, and Seachrome Coast. You want to avoid lands that enter tapped at all costs.
Warden of Evos Isle and Watcher of the Spheres don't look like they'll do too much as they won't be able to reduce the cost of a lot of your team (i.e. Skycat Sovereign, Healer's Hawk, Watcher of the Spheres, realistically Sephara, Sky's Blade). I'd think it would make sense to reduce the number of these you're playing (personally i'd ditch Warden of Evos Isle entirely)
a playset of Squadron Hawk should be useful here.
As Foretold does almost nothing for you here, I'd suggest ditching it. Griffin Aerie should probably also be ditched, because there are just too few ways to get value from it in your current list.
Creature based lists like these oftentimes can't make good use of countermagic, like Absorb and Counterspell, because they're using their mana on their turn to play creatures. I thing you would be better off playing proactive-spells instead of reactive ones. Stuff like Path to Exile is going to get you a LOT more value, because it lets you keep playing aggressively on your turns, without having to slow down so much for countering stuff.
Modern decks should always aim towards 60 cards. While running 64 might not seem like much more, it will make your hands & draws weaker overall, and create less consistency. I would suggest strongly to aim to get down to 60 cards (there are a lot of suggestions of stuff to remove above so should be an easy job)

As someone who started playing the game with a Core Set 19 Ajani planeswalker deck, lifegain is a theme that always appeals to me. Lathiel definitely has some potential to be a great lifegain commander! There are some cards I'd definitely recommend, though.
- The Ozolith to help you retain some counters if some creatures get killed. It can dump them on a creature right before combat as well.
- Inspiring Call, Abzan Falconer, Pridemalkin and Tuskguard Captain are all cards that synergize well with +1/+1 counters. Pridemalkin and Tuskguard Captain do the same thing as Crowned Ceratok but for one mana less.
- Ajani's Welcome, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Impassioned Orator and Lunarch Veteran Flip for more soul sister-like effects
- Angelic Accord, Griffin Aerie, Resplendent Angel or any other "If you gained X life this turn make a token" cards.
- Some more removal. Whichever ones you prefer, really.
- Sigarda's Splendor, Well of Lost Dreams and Alhammarret's Archive for some more lifegain card draw.
KBK7101 on Did I just solve white's …

My main problem with the whole card draw topic is that white is the only color that can't do it. "But white isn't supposed to--", right, I get that.... but it's the ONLY color that can't. Blue can draw cards every turn from various means. Black can draw stupid amounts of cards in short bursts dependent on paying life or sacrificing creatures (Vilis, Broker of Blood, God-Eternal Bontu). Red can use rituals and treasures etc to make use of some "Exile cards from the top of your library" effect alongside it's plentiful discard and draw effects. Green can outdraw literally every other color with ETB triggers (Elemental Bond etc), cast triggers (Beast Whisperer etc), and the stupidity that is power triggers (Return of the Wildspeaker etc.) White is the only color that can't do it. It would be a different argument if, say, green or black lacked its draw power. It needs something. I understand that it "Doesn't want to" but it needs... something. The custom cards up top are a good way to fix that, though I doubt they'd ever print something like them.
Since white is so high on lifegain, I'd love to see more cards like Griffin Aerie or Angelic Accord, but with card draw instead of tokens. Again, probably will never see print, though...
