+1 from me! Looks fun. I like a lot of your choices like Shabraz, the Skyshark, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, and Ivory Tower.
What do you think about Well of Lost Dreams or Dawn of Hope to take better advantage of cards like Spectrum Sentinel or Daxos who will often gain life on your opponent’s turns? I had them both in my original list, but found I was mostly gaining life on my turn and wanted the extra slots instead of redundancy. Food for thought though.
If you do add the Horizon Chimera and Drogskol Reaver combo, be sure to leave a few mana open to Valorous Stance your own Reaver to stop it! Or have Thassa's Oracle out before you start! Would hate to die in an unstoppable loop hahaha love it
Please give an upvote to my Shanna deck if you can!

I often find War Tax and Flood are playable, especially if I usually am not the most threatening deck (and thus are less targeted depending on groups), either can very much ruin a deck's day. There is also Mass Diminish that can either neutralize a threat or make someone super vulnerable, in addition to just being the funniest way to use resources most of the time. I feel like there are a few situations you'd prefer Polymorphist's Jest, but Mass Diminish's shockingly long duration means it can do crazier stuff in my experience.
You might want good old Ivory Tower in here, not sure if you play in a meta where people win via non-infinite combat/damage, obviously a stinky garbage fire if everyone plays infinite combo.
Since you'll often have extra cards, not sure if Dreamscape Artist as a repeatable Blue Harrow matters enough (it's slow but the untapped lands make it 'cheap' ramp), also nice with Graveyard utilization.

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!!

Remove Battlefield Medic and Doubtless One
Your ramp is good but if you change you land base a little it could be better with Three Visits, Nature's Lore, Crop Rotation
Land base Savannah, Scattered Groves, Arctic Treeline, Windswept Heath, Myriad Landscape, Gaea's Cradle
War Room and Bonders' Enclave will draw on a land
One thing I would recommend is not mixing green ramp and white catchup ramp. The white ones just get hosed. You could fix this by running lots of ways to change the amount of lands you control. Strip Mine, Wasteland, Dust Bowl, Selesnya Sanctuary

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 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.
