Creature — Human Wizard
: Target creature gains lifelink until end of turn.
: Whenever you gain life this turn, each opponent loses that much life.
Vizkopa Guildmage Discussion

Looks pretty good. I think you should definitely find room for Vizkopa Guildmage . You can activate her second ability multiple times (even in response to the first lifegain trigger), resulting in huge drains for every life gained during the turn!
You might like these too: Storage Matrix , Uba Mask , Angel's Trumpet , Regna, the Redeemer , Sunbond , Cradle of Vitality , Slaughter , Dingus Staff , Ethereal Absolution , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Angelic Accord , Resplendent Angel , Revival, Syphon Mind

With all this life gain, it’s fun to drain your opponents by paying Vizkopa Guildmage second ability multiple times.

I play a very strange Oloro combo deck if you wanna check it out.

I'd trade out
and put in a
Debt to the Deathless
. I run it over Exsanguinate in my Teysa because I don't mainboard my
and it helps me close out games still. So even if your Darkest Hour is getting countered/exiled/whatever you can have an easier time winning with that. If you slap a
it makes this even more insane. And Bracers is also already good on Teysa trading 3 tokens for 2 creatures rather than 1. Say you spend 7 mana on Debt, 3 on Vizkopa with Bracers, with 3 opponents in the game. That's 3 on Debt for 6 life but you'll gain 18 then Vizkopa activates twice and they lose 36. That's 42 life loss to each opponent. It can also work well whenever you gain a lot of life in a turn like Soul Warden and a token dump.
I would run Carnival of Souls since you already have Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant and if both are out, it's free black mana whenever creatures hit.
I'd trade a boardwipe for Merciless Eviction because it can handle indestructible and hexproof creatures with exile. The only downside is worrying about a counterspell. Also, maybe Storm Herd in place of Increasing Devotion ? I don't know how fast the decks you play against are but if you mana ramp enough Storm Herd usually has more value. Also consider Black Market for mana ramp in a Teysa deck.
I know I'm suggesting a lot but wanted you to consider some of your options, I know some of my suggestions don't really have something directly to take out with them. This deck seems very good and competitive I'd say.

Exquisite Blood will give you a secondary win can using Vizkopa Guildmage secondary ability and comboing that to infinity. Dimir Infiltrator Muddle the Mixture Shred Memory Can help you tutor the guildmage. Brainspoil can help you tutor the enchant.

Zur's Weirding might be good here. Also, Cradle of Vitality with big lifelink creatures seems stronk! And last but not least, Vizkopa Guildmage is surprisingly deadly in lifegain decks. You can activate her ability multiple times, creating a stacking Sanguine Bond effect (except even better than Bond since it hits all opponents).

1 Welder isn't a combo piece. It is recursion.
2 You said you challenge me to find a scenario where making piles was more beneficial and I gave you one without much thought. TBH the untapped monolith is less likely than double welder.
3 My point wasn't that it was equally likely for piles to be as strong as choosing. The point was that it is possible for piles to be stronger in some scenarios. Therefore it is not as simple as "choosing is stronger".
4 If you don't like multiple copies of the same card let's do an Oloro EDH deck (again off the top of my head).
Lili needs to deal with both a hard lock and the combo that the lock allowed them to get out. The one making the piles gets to decide if the picker gets to deal with one or both.
The point isn't that these scenarios are likely. It is that they exist and therefore the statement "choosing is always better than making piles" is false.
I am done giving scenarios in which you can make make piles so that either win or neither win. You were unaware that the situations exist and that is fine. You are now trying to act as if you had stopped at saying they are corner cases and didn't "challenge" me to prove what I said was true. They are corner cases. But they exist.
