I feel like this is one card away from an infinite combo. Something that says when an opponent loses life you can that much or something. But I don't think a card like that exists at common. But a suggestion for you would be Deathgreeter. The thing that I noticed though is that you have a lot of ways to gain/drain life but no way of making the creatures necessary to do that though. Something to consider would be creatures that when they enter or die makes a token. Something like Doomed Dissenter or cards with afterlife. Although the only playable creature with afterlife is Imperious Oligarch. Other creature that might be good: Doomed Traveler, Lazotep Reaver, Wakedancer, Fourth Bridge Prowler, Fume Spitter, Dusk Legion Zealot.

I would probably cut Epicure of Blood, five mana is just too much, and I would go down to at most 2 Suture Priest. I would even go as far and say cut him because you want more creatures like the ones listed above, this is because you don't really need 12 copies of that effect even if he does a bit more. The main thing this deck wants to do is play out creatures that gain u life which in turn will damage your opponent.

Also while you're kind of on to it already, more cards which discourages your opponents from casting their stuff so that you have more to work with: AEther Barrier, Aura of Silence, Aven Mindcensor, Frozen Aether, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Land Equilibrium, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Mana Breach, Overburden, Suture Priest

Never considered this your commander before but they seem pretty fun. There's honestly not much I would change, this is a pretty solid list. Just for the hell of it though here are some cards you may or may not like:

Ajani's Pridemate, Alms Collector, Boon Reflection, Drannith Magistrate, Masako the Humorless, Rebuff the Wicked, Speaker of the Heavens, Suture Priest, Weathered Bodyguards.

I recognize this next bit is by no means a budget option, but Extraplanar Lens coupled with snow lands in mono decks offers some pretty killer asymmetrical ramp, assuming nobody else is running the same snows as you.

I like your deck! Hope this is of some use to you.

Mxnst3r Suture Priest could be another alternative to Soul Warden. I know it costs more, but it has the added benefit of punishing your opponents for getting creatures as well.

I'm surprised no Suture Priest.

I think a good include would be Goldnight Commander. It pretty much buffs all your boys infinitely if played right.

I'd honestly cut Knight-Captain of Eos to add Spore Frog. For the cost you pay, I don't think the tokes are worth it. Plus Spore Frog will leave you with mana to cast more enchantments.

Suture Priest and Anointer Priest will round out the Soul Sisters package. And, honestly I don't know if Teysa Karlov is necessary, seeing as how you don't actually have all that many death triggers to worry about, or all that many token creators to really benefit from her token buff. And you definitely don't have enough equipment or auras to be able to effectively run Sigarda's Aid.
