Indulging Patrician Discussion

To stay more in black, I would consider some sort of vampire sacrifice, counters, and/or lifedrain strategy. Your black cards that could work well in such a deck would be Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Embodiment of Agonies , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Mortician Beetle , Souls of the Faultless , Castigate , Disentomb , Gerrard's Verdict , Revival / Revenge , Despark , and Grim Return . Most of the other black cards are at least playable as well. The only two I'd cut in most circumstances are Underworld Dreams and In Garruk's Wake . The former needs more build-around while the latter just costs too much to be a consistent boardwipe.
Cards I'd look at adding for such a build might be Gatekeeper of Malakir , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Sangromancer , Dictate of Erebos , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Victim of Night , Indulgent Aristocrat , Pawn of Ulamog , Grim Haruspex , Silversmote Ghoul , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Malakir Cullblade , Blood Artist , Urge to Feed , Feast of Blood , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Archangel of Thune , Cruel Celebrant , Drana's Emissary , Indulging Patrician , Malakir Bloodwitch , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanctum Seeker , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Pious Evangel Flip.

Looks like a fun starter commander! Black White lifegain is a definite fun archtype to build, maybe work up towards something like Karlov of the Ghost Council or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic ! I know starting out budget is important as you don't want to invest in cards you might not like, so I've made the recommendations with that in mind!
Spirit Loop seems like it could have a home in your deck, as it's a consistent 2cmc spell that you can keep casting and getting back to trigger your commander.
Well of Lost Dreams Dawn of Hope Cosmos Elixir Are all sources of card draw that synergize with your lifegain gameplan! Your commander's colors are notoriously known for lacking card draw and ramp, so these might help keep you in the game!
Blind Obedience seems perfect for your deck!
Lurrus of the Dream-Den offers consistent recursion and allows you to cast lower cmc permanents. Kami of False Hope could also pair with this really well, as it's basically a fog effect that you can cast for cheap over and over!
In your current list, it appears a little removal light (which to be fair is meta dependent). since you're playing white, you have access to cards like Darksteel Mutation and Reprobation , which can be a headache for your opponents to deal with if you enchant their commander. Also Victimize is a great catchall removal spell.
For cuts, I'd recommend evaluating your cards in terms of whether they actively win the game or help you do what you want. In your current list Fortified Rampart I've found to be underwhelming and doesn't further your gameplan. I'd also recommend replacing the following: Star-Crowned Stag Skeleton Archer Reaper of Night Kor Scythemaster Inspiring Captain Hailstorm Valkyrie Gargoyle Sentinel Fiend Binder Angel of the Dawn Courier Griffin Silverflame Ritual Chaplain's Blessing Splendid Agony Djeru's Renunciation Sinister Possession .
That being said, it can sometimes be fun just trying your best with whatever cards are lying around! Hopefully the suggestions can give your deck a little pep!

jamesmac42, I'll add Resplendent Angel to the maybe board, as it works well both playability and thematically, but Indulging Patrician is a perfect example of the cards I'm looking for in this deck, which is synergistic passive drain. Ideally I'll be able to fit both in at some point.
fuxx, thanks for the upvote! I have been asked about this card before (perhaps not on TappedOut), and I don't run it for a couple reasons; it has a cmc of 5, which is awkward when the commander costs 5, I don't run the most creatures so a lot of the time I wouldn't make full use of the recursion, and people dislike saccing a creature every turn (just look at how people react when you drop a Sheoldred, Whispering One).
The goal here is to be able to hurt people while staying under the radar, and wait until we get to the point where we hurt them so much that they can't stop us even if they wanted to. People value their permanents much more than their life totals for most of the game.

Santiago1011 have you considered running Resplendent Angel over Indulging Patrician? It’s a little more mana restrictive, with the added cost of having to gain two more life to trigger, but I think it could provide more utility. Plus, Liesa, Shroud of Dusk hits for 5 anyway!

BW keyword soup tribal? BW keyword soup tribal! May I introduce you to keyword soup all-stars Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , and Indulging Patrician ? Also, another pet card of mine, Oketra's Monument which gives you tokens with vigilance and reduces the cost of your commanders! I'd say cut the aristocrat cards seeing how you minimal sac outlets. Also, if your goal is to just overwhelm people with keywords, Thalia's Lancers is a great choice because you can tutor out Odric to finish the game.

Here are my recommended 5.
Obzedat, Ghost Council: Lack luster at 5 mana and difficult to cast with 4 pips. It also only hits 1 opponent.
Defiant Bloodlord: Costs too much and you already have sanguine bond and too other effects that do this.

I'd cut Alela, as I'm pretty sure she has exactly nothing to do with your strategy, as well as the aforementioned Indulging Patrician. Baleful Strix as without bounce effects it just cantrips for little additional value, Pristine Talisman--three mana rocks aren't worth the tiny bit of life it'll give you. And maybe Blood Tribute as you don't have a staggeringly high amount of vampires. That last one is up for debate, though.

Indulging Patrician seems kind of lackluster in commander.
