This is the only thing I could find but there may be some more

Looks pretty good! Here are a couple of things that come to mind:
You only have a few ally cards in the deck. As a result I'm worried that the ones that require multiple allies to be in play to be useful such as Agadeem Occultist and Drana's Chosen will often times not be as relevent as you hope. If you're not planning on adding other allies, i'd probably cut them. Additionally, I saw you put a combo with drana's chosen in the description but i don't understand how it works (it's possible i'm just missing something though). Assuming you had a sac outlet and either a second thornbite staff or Conspiracy (to make the tokens also be allies), i could see it working but since the staff only untaps one creature and you need to tap two allies to make a token (the chosen and another ally), you appear to be limited by the amount of allies already in play.

I can't recommend General Tazri enough. The deck is kind of reliant on Sea Gate Loremaster, But it works fine without it, and my current build is about $120. The deck is STUPID powerful though, as I beat my friends two thousand dollar Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck 5 times out of 10. There are also many wincons, as I've won by damage, gaining life until everyone scooped, decking someone, and stealing someone's sheoldred with Agadeem Occultist. It's also a super fun deck to play. I've been playing it for a couple months now, and I haven't been in a boring game with it.

I will start off by linking the TappedOut Ally Primer. I will also link my 2 current Ally decks Here and Here. I have personally played Allies since the OG Zendikar -- my lists are different from the ones found in the primer and offer a more mid range take on the traditional ally lists you see which are typically much more aggressive.
As for your list specifically, you seem to want to go the aggressive route. As such, cutting the allies that have higher costs will speed up the deck -- as well as the allies that just offer utility. Bala Ged Thief, Agadeem Occultist, Hagra Diabolist, Halimar Excavator, Harabaz Druid, Kazuul Warlord, Ondu Cleric, Sea Gate Loremaster, Seascape Aerialist, Tajuru Archer, and Tuktuk Scrapper would be the allies I would cut -- in addition to Panharmonicon, and Unified Front. In their place, Akoum Battlesinger, Firemantle Mage, Kabira Evangel, Kazandu Blademaster, Oran-Rief Survivalist, Reckless Bushwhacker, Taurean Mauler, and Umara Raptor. Again, these suggestions are for more aggro focused approach. If you are looking for something else, let me know and I can better tailor any advice or answer questions about interactions.

My personal philosophy with Ally decks is that you have to go all in or nothing. Then again, that's just me, you do you.
You may need to explain to me why Stoneforge Acolyte is in here, since I see no equipments. If you are using it for the Rally triggers, there are quite a few other better choices.
Unless this is a casual deck you play against your friends with, you should probably try throwing several other win-conditions. If you want, you can make this an Esper () deck and throw in Unified Front, Hagra Diabolist, Agadeem Occultist, or Bala Ged Thief.

Again the deck I am running is somewhat budget so hitting 5 mana only happens if I get a decent hand, i'm me deck i do have Agadeem Occultist but only 2 because I have a couple go for the throats for budget removal. I also have got 2 Bojuka Brigand as filler and another attacker as I can't see me keeping many blockers. In my meta there are a lot of board wipes and tribal decks going around, (also one really pesky bogles deck) I am considering Golgari Charm as a utility card to get rid of any particularly strong enchantments or keeping my board state alive if i dont have any March from the Tomb. But all in all i am really enjoying allies and hope to build this deck to its highest potential. One last question though, what should i use in Sideboard?
