Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim Discussion

Thanks Firebones675 for the comment. I used to have Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim in my previous build of this deck and rarely got above 30 life. I never was able to use her exile ability of opponent creatures. I replaced her with Kambal, Consul of Allocation which can trigger other abilities. Also, I need to sac creatures to use Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and the goal around this deck is to keep the Allies on the field and/or exile / return them. I may reconsider if I see a good amount of life gain with the changes. I may consider Felidar Sovereign maybe as a replacement for the Angel. It is worth looking into.

Ryjo I sure did. The only problem with that is that Emrakul's Evangel doesn't do us as much as Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. I've won games strictly off of the lifegain Ayli/Zulaport combo gave me. It also doesn't work well with Blisterpod or Catacomb Sifter.

Thank you Orion93 for the comment.
Vehicles - With the ban on Smuggler's Copter, I'm not overly fussed with the pressure of vehicles, I'd happily use my life total as a resource to soak a vehicle hit and replenish my health with lifelink creatures the following turn. As soon as Always Watching hits the battlefield I'd feel comfortable with stabilising my health pool with Gisela, the Broken Blade and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet aggression, and then block vehicles with first strike damage from Gisela, the Broken Blade. If the pressure is extensive, I'd chuck Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim under the bus to stabilise the board. If Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is on the board the vehicle would then be exiled.
Control - Very much agreed this is a problem. I've tried to sideboard in a way that deals with control... indirectly. Rather than hard countering removal spells, you take them and use low cost menace zombies Relentless Dead to indefinitely return to the field to fuel Kalitas and to attack with directly to chip away at the opponents health (menace is pretty good against control). I had considered going Esper, opening up blue but... I resigned to the fact you can't hard counter everything, therefore the Relentless Dead method will suffice to 'exhaust' removal spells.
More than happy for your feedback on these decisions, thanks again.

Honestly I think this deck would be so much better as orzhov. There are so many better leywords on it and with the new set coming out you can add Gifted Aetherborn which is 2 mana for 2 keywords and from other sets there isAyli, Eternal Pilgrim and Rancid Rats and more! So good deck but since red doesn't do that much for you by way of keywords I think you should go orzhov or at least mardu!

Eerie Interlude and Long Road Home seem good here. Can do it after you block but before damage, in response to a removal spell/board sweeper or just for value. also Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim seems decent as well.
