Very nice! Great layout and description!

Have you considered Pathbreaker Ibex over Siege Behemoth or Thunderfoot Baloth? Not exactly the same effect but it could get real nasty with a big stupid creature like Malignus.

Glistening Oil and Tainted Strike seem food if you're willing to play infect. Goes great woth skittles and big dumb monsters like Malignus.

Alright some cuts.

Primeval Protector 10/10 vanillas that can get chumped by Soldier tokens feels bad man.

Vastwood Animist Not a fan of turning lands into creatures. Plus it's only ever going to be like a 4/4 because by the time 4+ allies hit the battlefield, you're either going to have the game in hand or someone is going to blow up the board.

Undergrowth Champion Not a lot of synergy here.

Gisela, the Broken Blade Bruna, the Fading Light I know everyone wants to live the dream, but if you're really focused on Allies I just think this isn't the deck to do it in.

Avenger of Zendikar Craterhoof Behemoth Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Gahiji, Honored One Malignus I put all these here in the same pile cause they fit into what I call "Good Stuff" that detracts from what I think the overall strategy of the deck should be. For me Allies is a deck that accrues value every turn by dropping one creature after another in a synergistic chain. These guys are at the top of the chain but either for me feel "Win More" which I'm not a fan of, or feel like they do something different than what the deck really wants to do. Just my two cents.

You need more creatures in this. I love Saskia but you gotta pummel your opponents with her. I would recommend Xenagos, God of Revels in this, he's just good all around but man, with Saskia he'd be a little monster. Malignus is also another recommendation, you can knock two birds with one stone if you have Saskia, Xenagod, and Malignus. Also remove some Planeswalkers, you could get by with like four but eleven is a bit much. You're gonna wiff all the time with Xenagos, the Reveler with so few creatures and so many planeswalkers.

Happy Deckbuilding!

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Malignus are an instant win. I did 40 damage using it and my opponent's eye's popped out of his head! This deck is INCREDIBLE! Amazing job!

Malignus is another EDH staple. Specially when paired with Curse of Bloodletting.

Erebos, God of the Dead is probably the best help against pesky life gain decks, for it does not prohibit you, as well as provide some card advantage.

Leyline of Punishment, Forsaken Wastes, Havoc Festival, Stigma Lasher, Sulfuric Vortex and possibly Witch Hunt, may help against those life gain decks, that might be a problem for you.
