Path of Bravery
As long as your life total is greater than or equal to your starting life total, creatures you control get +1/+1.
Whenever one or more creatures you control attack, you gain life equal to the number of attacking creatures.

Angel of Glory's Rise is a winner for Darien decks, currently it will resurrect 75% of your creatures (and the bonus zombie interaction is fun too). Sun Titan is also great repeatable resurrection, bringing back a current 64% of your permanent cards.
Mirror Entity is a cool card to think about, it adds to your human/soldier count and acts as a mana-sink late game to turn your army into buff dudes (either to attack with or survive damage-based removal such as Hour of Devastation)

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.
Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.
Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.
Banisher Priest is good.
Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.
Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.
Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.
Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.
Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.
Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.
From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.
Welcoming Vampire is good too.
Feat of Resistance is nice.
Gods Willing is good.
Aligned Hedron Network is good.
Font of Vigor - see previous comment
Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned
Also consider Sphere of Safety.
I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

Your deck is like a classic Soul Sisters. On these last years, some new good stuff came to improve this deck. I'm obligated to recommend you some cards:
- Ranger-Captain of Eos: Like Ranger of Eos, but exchange card advantage for 1 less mana and some sort of control buying you a turn against some combos, like Gifts Storm and Ad Nauseam decks, for example. Good to sidedeck, but you can also run some copies on main deck along with the original Ranger of Eos.
- Voice of the Blessed: As soon as possible, exchange all your Ajani's Pridemate, especially because it's a monowhite Soulsisters, unless you're playing it on Selesnya variants. Obvious reasons.
- Ajani, Strength of the Pride: The best planeswalker for Soul sisters, by the way. His first and last loyalty abilities are really helpful, also his second loyalty ability gives "Ajani's Pridemate" tokens. An unsanswered Ajani can win some games, so if possible, run 2 or 3 copies.
- Castle Ardenvale: Land with token generation. Good especially on late game (issues as card advantage for short hands, no spells remaining and/or mana flood).
Some other stuff too:
- Daxos, Blessed by the Sun: Another soul-like card. Lifegain events are triggered both when creatures ETB or dies, for 1 more mana and is legendary. Like Auriok Champion, it won't die to Lightning Bolt.
- Solitude: An alternative to Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares.
- Path of Bravery or Force of Virtue: Alternatives for Honor of the Pure.

From my experience playing with Tethered Griffin, he's gonna need some more help to get going reliably.
I would cut the Crown/Scepter (I feel they're a little clunky as a whole, especially if we're not playing the set, and a bit wordy/confusing) and add in some more enchantment support. I'm going to try to keep the complexity lower-ish, but you can see the direction I'm going.
A final option could be checking out some fun auras with Transcendent Envoy + On Serra's Wings , and Shielded by Faith . ( Eland Umbra , Benevolent Blessing , and Spirit Mantle could definitely get there down the line, but I feel they're a bit more complex mechanically for a beginner than a lot of the other mechanics showcased.)
Topping the curve with a Griffin Dreamfinder or two might be a fun way to pay off the heavier enchantment load and emphasize the griffin/enchantment link.

This looks amazing! You should add Path of Bravery , youll gain ridiculous amounts of health with all those 1/1 soldiers attacking!

Desolation Twin = Too slow, I would remove it.
Angelic Accord: Not enough lifegain in the deck to make it worth.
Path of Bravery: Meh, mostly you will be attacking with a creature or two so not worth. Only at the very end will you swing with a lot, but at the very end your life total doesn't matter too much.
Embalmed creatures are zombies so stuff like Eternal Skylord works really well.
Cloudblazer is a great target for copy target creature spells.
Lazotep Plating Hexproof is a great save something card and you get a little bonus with the amass.
Forsake the Worldly Great removal plus cycling option. A personal favorite.
Fact or Fiction Great because you get to search the top 5 and get a few into hand. Sneaky trick though is that you can embalm any creatures that go into the grave. It's a win win.
Embalmer's Tools I think it makes embalm cost 1 less and remember that embalm creatures are zombies so you can mill others or yourself to get more creatures to embalm. Almost like drawing a card if you mill an embalm creature.
Throw in your Geist of Saint Traft?

Alright, so i have some spare time currently and will try to give you some more advice.
Dead Man's Chest - Funny card, but not really on theme with your deck as far as i can see
Path of Bravery - Does to little imo, but i have never seen it in play, so it may overperform
Skymarcher Aspirant - Even if you have ascent, its only a 2/1 flyer for one mana
Paladin of Atonement - Same reasoning as for Path of Bravery
Bloodcrazed Paladin - The fact that it does not have trample makes it a lot worse than one might think
Queen's Commission - Not a bad card, but one of the weaker ones imo
I think you are running too few sacrifice outlets, especially since you are a vampire tribal and need creatures to die for your commander. You already have Yahenni, Undying Partisan, but there are also Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia, Blood Bairn, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Indulgent Aristocrat, Voldaren Pariah Flip and Bloodthrone Vampire (No particular oder, but free sac outlets like Viscera Seer are great!)
I really like your deck idea and think that you already are on a great way. If i were you i would abondon the life gain theme and focus more on being an aristocrat deck since your commander heavily suggest you to do so (and also because it is really powerful), but i guess lifegain is more flavourfull with Vampires :)
Good luck with your deck!
