Hey I am not sure what the power level of your playgroup is, but I have a few suggestions.

One card you should consider cutting is Arlinn Kord  Flip and if you really want to play a planeswalker include Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. He is more on flavor and can give you value even if he dies after only one activation.

When it comes to removal, consider adding Krosan Grip, Anguished Unmaking, and Utter End. Also a boardwipe or two would be good. I like Living End a lot.

Also, I would up the land count to at least 36 and add Kodama's Reach.

When it comes to allies, I would cut some out to make room for lands. I suggest cutting Angel of Renewal, Coralhelm Guide, Goblin Freerunner, Drana's Emissary, Makindi Shieldmate and some of the Changelings.

Also, add more card draw engines like Vanquisher's Banner, Phyrexian Arena, or Rhystic Study.

Here is my list. It isn't budget, but the creature base and most of the spells are affordable.

This card

5 mana for a 4/4 with a potential combo pieces attached to it

There were also these cards which is in the core set.


a continuous drain effect, you'll need to pay of course but still... whoho

oh yes

A flying 2/2 which drains 1 life and the opponent loses 1 life.

I Really like drain effects, they are dirty as hell and when you least expect the effect then it already has drained 8 life and gained you 8 life.

I've built a ally trigger deck with Kalastria Healer which focuses on the same principles, play allies such as Bojuka Brigand, Makindi Shieldmate and Ondu Cleric which gets triggers.

Ally Drain

what do you guys think? am i crazy or just bloodthirsty for this creature :3 ?

Heyyy :) +1, I really like your deck. But I noticed some things :)

You haven't got a chance to react on spells or creatures your opponent casts, maybe a removal like Doom Blade or something like this would help?I think you'll get a problem with Makindi Patrol and Makindi Shieldmate, together they are pretty useless. Splash for another colour, maybe you'd like an Umara Raptor or an Oran-Rief Survivalist? It would also make your deck more aggressive.

I also created a Pauper Ally Deck 1hour ago, still trying to improve it :)) :

Pauper Allies, together we are one

Also, get rid of Expedition Envoy, Joraga Bard, Makindi Shieldmate, Munda, Ambush Leader, Nylea, God of the Hunt. You need card draw, try out Wheel of Fortune or Magus of the Wheel for a good start. Also, you need a ton more ramp than you currently have, especially considering that you're running green, which can be amazing for card draw as well. Eternal Witness is nearly essential for any green deck too.
