I’ve played a number of games now and the deck is a lot of fun! This is the first deck (basically) of mine that has counter-magic in it, so I’ve had to reassess my playing habits, but otherwise it’s loaded with weird interactions that sort of pilot themselves. The commander is really important to get out there, as it will build you a 2/2 Army pretty promptly, and you need to draw a lot in order to get a good amount of theme on the table. Confessor matches up nicely with the draw/discard effects, and your first clue on your turn will get you two cards each turn. The color-hate (like Justice and Sanctimony) can be sort of feels-bad so a few of the games I’ve just sat on them (only justice, come to think of it). Library of Leng and Ivory Tower are always a great team, and Island Sanctuary is buttressed well by drawing on other people’s turns. The downside I hadn’t considered with that, though, is you’re still pretty weak to flying. I managed to use Abbey Matron in the best (only?) way, blocking and then pumping, which sort of felt like unlocking an achievement. Restore the Peace is great both against tokens that are beating you up AND against big baddies that block your 2/2s. Martial Law is one of the best answers to fliers and other trouble, almost like an Oblivion Ring that you can re-target every turn. This post is getting pretty long, so I’m going to wrap it up... but I think you get the notion ;p Thanks for asking MagicMarc!!

Im not sure if the deck needs it but maybe Ivory Tower could help you regain some life

jonny909090 I run a similar Commander deck Mortivore, Consuming Aberration, Black Vise, Forced Fruition and my 2 favorite card combo Peer into the Abyss with (what you already have) Sphinx's Tutelage (or any similar mill/draw cards) and to hold my deck over I like to use cards like Venser's Journal and it's lesser counter part Ivory Tower

(I don't know how to remove my previous comment)

I do love a good lifegain deck : ) The one I built a while back is a variation of 60 card soul sisters with Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant gaining me life from Lingering Souls or afterlife creatures like Seraph of the Scales or Orzhov Enforcer all to power up a Bloodthirsty Aerialist

Revival / Revenge is a great versatile card, and my favorite lifegain combo is to use Selenia, Dark Angel with Sanguine Bond and Tainted Sigil Selenia is a great flying blocker that your opponent will never actually get rid of, bond is bond : ) and sigil can actually save you in a pinch, but when you put them all together, it's a kill one player combo. Stacking Selenia triggers can be fun when it works : )

But again, I use this in 60 card, so not sure how applicable it is to commander. I also really like Ivory Tower or Sun Droplet just for constant gain effects for Bloodthirsty Aerialist but I'm not sure if it would work in EDH.

Best of luck with the deck! Looks pretty awesome.

since every single life counts, consider Seraph Sanctuary and Radiant Fountain . Not much of a difference, but hey it's something.

Also Ivory Tower popped up my mind, but I don't know, if it fits this deck.

I would not mind reprints of Phyrexian Tyranny , Iron Maiden , and Ivory Tower in this set, mainly because I need them for a deck that I am building.
