Ally Encampment Discussion

Thanks for the suggestion, TheRedGoat. I already considered and rejected Ally Encampment because I decided it was overall worse than the rest of the mana-base but, on second thought, it's actually probably more useful than Sliver Hive. If you're interested, you can find the ban-list here.

Ally Encampment? I sorta know the format you're building within, but I'm unfamiliar with the common interactions or ban lists (if any).

Nice Budget-ish deck! I also love allies and have been playing them as my primary deck(s) since the original zendikar. One upgrade I would make is Aether Vial. I didn't like the idea of Aether Vial at first, but it really makes all the difference in the world. Could even speed up your clock to turn 3 with a good hand. It also plays incredibly nice with Ally Encampment -- paying 2 mana to return an ally to your hand only to vial it back in at instant speed. Can make for some stupid plays with dodging removal or triggering Kabira Evangel for the protection. Ideal aggro hand might play like:
Turn 1: Aether Vial. Turn 2 Kazandu Blademaster, vial in Hada Freeblade. Turn 3: Hada Freeblade, vial in Akoum Battlesinger, Surge Reckless Bushwhacker. Should be 29 damage swinging in turn 3. Also works with Expedition Envoy instead of one of the Hada Freeblades.
I have a Mardu version that also splashes black for Claim / Fame. Even if your opponent interacts with you, you are still able to pop off turn 3.

There are 3 great aliies at common and uncommon in white, Hada Freeblade, Expedition Envoy, and Kazandu Blademaster. You can use Ally Encampment and Unclaimed Territory as 5c lands. Akoum Battlesinger lets you attack for the win. One of the best ways to win with allies is to use your Ally Encampments to bounce your cheap allies over and over to trigger your best allies.

In my opinion, you got to much going on here and not enough "straight-lined" synergy. Do away with Halimar Tidecaller and anything with "awaken". Do away with Auriok Windwalker, Stoneforge Acolyte, Steelshaper's Gift, Stonehewer Giant and all the artifacts. Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper seems like a loner in this deck, ditch him.
Where the allies really shine is in their enter the battlefield abilities like rally. Consider putting in Munda, Ambush Leader, Kazuul Warlord, Hada Freeblade, Firemantle Mage, Highland Berserker, Munda's Vanguard, Relief Captain, Kazandu Blademaster, Talus Paladin...etc. I run a boros ally deck hence the colors of the cards mentioned above but there are literally dozens of ally creatures with the rally ability.
