Sadly your commander and deck need to fit for the companion to work, which is why currently only a few commanders work with Lurrus, that fit both Lurrus into the color identity and fit the commander into Lurrus's companion requirement, namely the following:

Killian, Ink Duelist, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, and Will the Wise all work on their own, as well as the following partner variants in Miara, Thorn of the Glade with any of the following: Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel, Keleth, Sunmane Familiar, and Akiri, Line-Slinger, or the variation from the new Friends Forever when pairing specifically Will the Wise with Lucas, the Sharpshooter.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but their companion criteria exclude each other from being in the deck. If Mulato is the companion, Kulato isn't allowed in the deck and vice versa. Commanders themselves aren't excluded from the companion criteria, that's why Lurrus of the Dream-Den can only be a companion for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Karlov of the Ghost Council or Killian, Ink Duelist.

So running one as a commander, or even just in the 99, means that the other is not allowed as a companion.

Authority of the Consuls slows opponents and helps your lifegain strategy

Fumigate is a good wipe for life gain, I would replace your Realm-Cloaked Giant

Witch of the Moors

Serra Ascendant

There are a bunch that I feel like would be fun, though possibly busted, together.

Two big pairings for me, Zedruu the Greathearted with Blim, Comedic Genius and Lonis, Cryptozoologist with Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer

Also just in general my playgroup has been floating the idea that you can pair up two legends that don't have partner, BUT they have to actually be connected by lore. So pairings like Ixidor, Reality Sculptor and any of the Akromas. Ghoulcaller Gisa and Stitcher Geralf, Karlov of the Ghost Council with any version of Teysa. The legends might pull your decks into different directions, but could make for interesting deckbuilding as you try to make them work together.

Karlov of the Ghost Council is an INSANE card for a deck like this when you combo it with ajani. its pricey, but kicks major ass. I'd look into cheaper dual lands like Caves of Koilos and Temple of Silence . They both work pretty well for me

Vizkopa Guildmage huge in decks like this. I might consider replacing some Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord with Sorin, Lord of Innistrad for the vampire and life gain theme.

Kaya's Guile and Mortify are super strong here too. perhaps consider ditching Vampire of the Dire Moon and Vizkopa Vampire for Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk since those 1 drops are easy targets for cheap removal.

Rhox Faithmender , Cradle of Vitality and Dawn of Hope all great additions as well

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!

On the first look, your commander can filter through your deck fairly consistently, so some reanimation spells like Dread Return Unburial Rites Victimize might work out for you!

Revival / Revenge and Light of Promise are both fun cards that offer some utility and can get out of hand.

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!

Soul Warden Soul's Attendant and Suture Priest are decent lifegain triggers, as they trigger on each creature entering the battlefield.

Blind Obedience seems perfect for your deck!

Vampire Nighthawk Indulging Patrician Basilica Bell-Haunt Angel of Vitality are creatures that seem to fit with your gameplan.

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.

Colored mana seems at a premium in your deck, so I'd also look into getting some cheaper artifact ramp like Marble Diamond and Charcoal Diamond .

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!
