Keep pulling those foil mythics!
Another question about strategy: Are you trying to use life gain as a means to an end, or as an end in itself? Do you use the lifegain cards to fuel Well of Lost Dreams , Dina, Soul Steeper , Mortality Spear , and friends, or do you want to finish a round with 50+ life?

It's weird to not see Sunforger in here. Maybe add in Make a Stand , Unbreakable Formation and Akroma's Blessing for some protection. Well of Lost Dreams , Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip and Chain of Plasma on one of your creatures go infinite with your commander. If you target a Stuffy Doll or Brash Taunter with it, you can kill at least one player, even all of them with Taunter. Finally, Stormwild Capridor could become infinitely big in that combo.

Maybe try Beacon of Immortality ? It can draw you lots of cards with Well of Lost Dreams , and it can potentially one-shot people with Sanguine Bond . Another great card here would be Alhammarret's Archive .

Bolas's Citadel can be kind of like draw
then add Alhammarret's Archive with the extra card draw and life gain

I could definitely try running both of those in place of the 3 cmc ones. It would probably help smooth out the early game.
As for the +1 counter payoffs, I’d probably find a slot to add Heliod, Sun-Crowned back in if I find i want more of it.
As always, thanks for the input!

Hey! I'm back with some more food for thought:
I also feel like some more lifegain payoffs could be nice. You only need a few (payoffs suck without their respective enablers, ofc), but Well of Lost Dreams , Cradle of Vitality , or Serene Steward could be fun.
I love the direction the deck is going, keep it up ;)

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!
