Firstly you should really cut it down to 60 cards, Ashen Rider is the first card that can come out as you will never get the chance to play it. You should also focus your creatures and spells a bit more. Chose the ones you absolutely need (Vampire Nighthawk is a god starting point) and use those. Seeing how you are playing Cliffhaven Vampire I would suggest Drana's Emissary and Gifted Aetherborn. You could also use more Lingering Souls. And get rid of the illegal cards.

-4Aether Vial, +4Sanguine Bond-2Cliffhaven Vampire, +2Falkenrath Noble The Cliffhaven were just not have a good impact. However, the Blood Artist seemed to annoy a lot of folks. Hence the swap to the Noble.

Exquisite Blood will not be added.

Thinking of -1Tithe Drinker and +1Bloodbond Vampire. She seems to get the most attention from the opponent.

Vampire Cutthroat is a sneaky little bugger. Performed well so far.

Lifegain? I always lie to run Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond (or Defiant Bloodlord or Cliffhaven Vampire instead of or in addition to Bond). Pulls the win outta know where, plus these effects never hurt when you are gaining life anyway. You are in white so enchantments are easily tutorable. In particular, Plea for Guidance can grab both the enchants in one go, but it is kinda expensive mana-wise. Enlightened Tutor is probably the standard, and for good reason.

I am considering running a few Kambal, Consul of Allocation and a few other tweaks before I give up completely. He's not an ally, but he is just as effective because he punishes your opponents for doing anything besides casting creatures. If you have a Zulaport Cutthroat along with him and your opponent wants to kill something, a 6 point life swing is a heavy price to pay to kill one creature. Declaration in Stone really hoses this deck if they target your Kalastria Healers, but learning to use your Ally Encampments wisely can get around this.

I am not a big fan of Chaplain's Blessing, because even with a Cliffhaven Vampire, you're only dealing one damage to your opponent. You gain 5 life, sure, but gaining life doesn't win you the game. I'd rather play a card that does more than prolong the inevitable and maybe slap my opponent on the wrist IF there's a Cliffhaven Vampire in play, but that's just me. Seems like having a card that does something to my opponent is better, such as Battle at the Bridge. I do like Expedition Envoy over Ondu Cleric early game, but I cut Cleric for something else, so it doesn't apply in my case.

RavenlordUA To be honest, I gave up on it. It just doesn't work competitively. In Standard Showdown it's 4-15. The only reason it won 4 times was because I was playing someone with a terrible deck. I also tried it with Ob Nixilis Reignited. If I survive to turn 6 or more I find myself hoping to top deck anything that can keep me alive one more turn.The best combo I got though was -36 + 18. I had two Panharmonicon and used March from the Tomb to bring back two Kalastria Healer and a Cliffhaven Vampire. But good luck living that long against a decent deck. On a side note, I had a lot of compliments on the deck.

I would recommend adding Cliffhaven Vampire in to the deck. It allows for a combo to trigger with Exquisite Blood and it resolves when your opponent is at 0. but also He can boost your effects for when you gain life.

Nephylos I started running 4 Dazzling Reflection I added one Altar's Reap also and I found it very useful. I added 2 Prophetic Prism and they are great for the draw and potential mana. I went against my aggro deck earlier before making changes and lost every time. But after making the changes I went 5-1 winning 5 straight before the first lost. I got rid of Ondu War Cleric and replaced it with 4 Expedition Envoy Because they are just 1 mana to cast it makes for a good early block or a good combo if you have 1-2 Kalastria Healer and a Panharmonicon. I have 1 Battle at the Bridge and it came in handy in two matches.

I've won a bit without the Panharmonicon also but I love it when I get 2-3 Trespasser's Curse out early then get a Panharmonicon. It's an easy win from there. Chaplain's Blessing has been a lifesaver too. I have 4 of them and it's nice to also do a bit of damage if you have a Cliffhaven Vampire out.
