Enchant creature you control
Whenever enchanted creature deals damage, you gain that much life.

As long as the object it’s enchanting remains legal, an enchantment can swap controllers as many times as you want. Since Indestructibility can enchant any permanent, it will remain on that permanent when your opponent gains control of it.
Now if it said something like Spirit Loop , it would fall off because your opponent’s newly acquired aura is not enchanting a creature they control.

Maybe focus a bit less on equipment and more on auras. That way opponents can't cripple you by wiping out one or the other.
I'd look at the creatures with Bestow. If your boss dies you get a creature and if not its an aura.
If your opponents use auras, Crown of the Ages is fun.

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!

@DuTogira Personally, I disagree about Splinter Twin stifling diversity in the Modern meta. Before its ban I was running a homebrew Mardu deck that had an incredibly favorable win-rate against Twin. The deck's win-rates also varied amongst the other decks in the format with its worst matchup being burn. Ever since Twin's ban aggro has swarmed the format outpacing my deck harder than before.
My homebrew deck's most defining piece was utilizing an Evershrike in the graveyard and using a Spirit Loop or Rancor to make it a constant presence in the late game. Graveyard strategies weren't as common back then either as I believe Living Death was the only significant graveyard strat at the time, so most decks wouldn't dedicate too much room to graveyard hate. With Twin gone other faster and more efficient graveyard strategies arose and graveyard hate out of sideboard became all the more frequent which made winning games 2 and 3 much more difficult for my deck. Not only that but those graveyard strategies that couldn't exist with Splinter Twin around ended up getting Faithless Looting banned. As a non-blue deck Faithless Looting was the glue that kept my deck together as getting a certain 5-CMC creature in the grave and an aura in hand is difficult and slow enough as it is. My deck could handle Jund/Abzan's hand disruption and their Scavenging Ooze 's, but with much more graveyard hate, more aggressive aggro decks and no Faithless Looting I would argue banning Splinter Twin killed my deck even though I never used that card in the first place.
I feel the banning has only diversified aggro and phased out slower decks like mine that had better win rates against Twin and BGx. I also think it's a false positive as there have been a huge slew of new modern-viable cards that have been printed since Twin's banning. The format was going to grow regardless of if Twin were to be banned or not, the real question was by how much? I also feel like there have been many more cards printed during this time that could be made excellent sideboard cards against Twin than there have been new cards printed to help with Twin's strategies. I remember the times when Combust was one of the answers used at stopping Splinter Twin and then they printed Rending Volley which took countering the strategy even further. Since then I've seen more and more cards printed in Standard that I feel could further help in keeping Twin in check today more than it ever was before. These are cards printed after it's banning that could be used against it now if it were ever unbanned: Sinister Concoction , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Unsubstantiate , Spell Queller , Authority of the Consuls , Lost Legacy , Fatal Push , Harsh Mentor , Trespasser's Curse , Tocatli Honor Guard , Rampaging Ferocidon , Kinjalli's Sunwing , Kitesail Freebooter , Cast Down , Assassin's Trophy , Unmoored Ego , Dovin's Veto , Force of Negation , Force of Vigor , Veil of Summer , Fry , Aether Gust , Brazen Borrower , Hushbringer , Deafening Silence , Mystical Dispute , Drown in the Loch , Wilt and Necromentia . I've likely missed a couple more due to how many sets have been released since and there will always be more cards that will be printed in future that can disrupt the strategy too. Since there have been many new deck archetypes that have emerged and been developed and improved upon over the many years in a non-Twin environment I'd like to see how they'd stack against Twin now just to see if it really is still an obstacle.

War Room: Not bad! ChannelFireball's article covers most of it; fine in e.g. mono- or even mono- to make things a bit more reliable
Thalisse, Reverent Medium: it's not quite Anointed Procession in the command zone, but I like it. Strionic Resonator triples the number of created Spirits. Temporary tokens from Tombstone Stairwell and Lightning Coils still count. Finally, it doesn't specify creature tokens, so with Pitiless Plunderer and a sac outlet, in response to each turn's trigger, you can sac the Spirits of the previous turn to get Treasure, only to have those Spirits replaced by new ones!
Vow of Torment: took me a second to parse that the point of this was further the deprecation of intimidate.
Promise of Tomorrow: More experiments in card advantage! I like the art and name, very hopeful and wholesome.
Ghen, Arcanum Weaver: the art for this looks more to me than anything, but whatever. Enchantments with ETB abilities are obviously nice, e.g. Act of Authority, Demonic Lore, and Sage's Reverie (no Induced Amnesia and Hatching Plans in the 99 tho, sorry). Spirit Loop-styled cards and enchantment tokens from e.g. Daxos the Returned can be used for sac fodder. Sagas can be recycled (you can loop Fall of the Thran if you really want to).

If you haven't seen Aspect of Mongoose before you probably haven't seen the others. There are three per color i think. Launch, Cessation and Spirit Loop, Sluggishness etc. Recasting enchantments that fit your deck is as good as card draw sometimes.
