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.

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.

Jaruun Yes I ran 3 Authority of the Consuls A few of the issues that came up. Was when their creatures either had double strike or they just exiled my enchantments/artifacts as I put them out. I often found myself needing to block with my creatures just to survive till turn 6, while hoping for a Dusk. The creatures I found to be most useful were Kalastria Healer and Cliffhaven Vampire. I think a better drain option is to switch out Ondu War Cleric and Zulaport Cutthroat for something like Chaplain's Blessing, Dazzling Reflection, Expedition Envoy or Battle at the Bridge. I will trade out Live Fast for Resourceful Return or Renewed Faith.
What I might try and go for is getting 1-2 Cliffhaven Vampire out then using instant spells to trigger drain. I know Live Fast was a way to get energy for Aether Hub but I added a couple Evolving Wilds to get plains if I need them. I also added two Sunscorched Desert.

thanks for the quick reply :)
i have a another question that i forgot to include earlier:
can i exile Kalastria Healer with the rest or does it need to be on the board when all other creatures return for its ability to work? same goes for Cliffhaven Vampire kinda.. do they need to be on the board when all the creatures return for them to trigger?
or can i exile them all and everything will happen? i get life for every ally that returns and all opponents get damage for every life i get. even though Kalastria Healer and Cliffhaven Vampire are entering the battlefield at the same time as the creatures that are supposed to trigger their abilities. :)

Obze Nephylos one thing to consider is that Panharmonicon not only interacts with Kalastria Healer but also, and more importantly Trespasser's Curse which i can use to punish my opponents playing zombies, token decks, etc. It's actually quite strong. a lot of people miss the wording on Panharmonicon that its not just creatures that you control that cause it to trigger but your opponents as well. And yes Eerie Interlude is a great finisher.
