I really like the look of this deck from a casual multiplayer perspective!!! The one problem i have with it though is that it looks like it's very low on consistency and card advantage because of that the deck is weak to board wipes and faster combo decks.Cards I would add to the deck are Cultivate / Kodama's Reach, Patriarch's Bidding, March from the Tomb, and Aura Shards. These cards along with any tutors you can afford will increase consistency and recovery in the deck. It may also be beneficial to have a focused sub theme so there's more synergy than just rally and 5 color fun stuff. Some good options for ally sub themes are equipment, aristocrats,tokens, and +1/+1 counters

Okay, there are a couple different routes you can go then. You can go with a sort of re-animator theme with cards like Rally the Ancestors, March from the Tomb, Immortal Servitude, Return to the Ranks, and Dawn. If you then combo these cards with things like Cliffhaven Vampire, and Ondu Cleric it can wind up raking up a lot of damage. For example, if you cast a Rally the Ancestors on 3 and return to play 2 Ondu Clerics, 1 Cliffhaven Vampire, 1 Kalastria Healer, and 1 Hada Freeblade, you wind up doing 20 damage to your opponent, gain 55 life, and wind up with a 5/6 Hada Freeblade for the turn. This style of deck would be interested in pretty much just using all your allies as blockers and looting through your deck as fast as you can so you can cast your re-animator spells for massive value. There is also the option of introducing some sacrifice elements like Viscera Seer with Zulaport Cutthroat in conjunction with Rally the Ancestors to further pump your damage output, kill your allies to prevent the exile trigger from rally, and scry into more combo pieces.

Kabira Evangel is a nice way to get your swingers like Hada Freeblade and Oran-Rief Survivalist through. Kazandu Blademaster is one of the best swingy allies in my opinion. I also would consider a few Captain's Claws for more Rally triggers.

If there's still space, I also would suggest a few Ondu Clerics. With one on the field when you play another Ally, you'll gain two life. With two, you'll gain 6. With three, you'll gain 12. With a full playset, you'll gain 20. Lantern Scout and Talus Paladin are nice as well.

I personally would prefer Join the Ranks over Allied Reinforcements mainly because of the instant speed of it. If someone pulls a boardwipe on you, you can get two more Rally triggers in response.

You also could consider adding a slight splash of black so you can run cards like March from the Tomb.

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.

Jaruun I liked this deck so much I just picked 98% up. Gonna run it in a store tourny in a couple of days. Missing Ally Encampment for now though. With a few practice runs against my aggro deck, if your draw is weak it gets mauled by turn 5. Thinking about adding 3x Dazzling Reflection to replace 2x March from the Tomb and 1x Bontu's Monument.Also running with the 3x Authority of the Consuls.Thanks for the great deck, just got back into magic after 15 years... so I'm really far behind.

One last note- I know this is intended as a budget deck, but if one can afford it, I think a pair of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar would be sweet in place of March from the Tomb. Having him drop a 2/2 Knight Ally token every turn with the triggers going off would be sweet! Then you could sacrifice the token(s) to Altar's Reap!

On the subject of card draw, I think Altar's Reap is infinitely better than Live Fast. It's instant speed, costs less, and your ability to sacrifice a creature would trigger more drain effects from Zulaport Cutthroat and Cliffhaven Vampire. Having creatures in the graveyard isn't a big deal since you have a pair of Dusk / Dawn and March from the Tomb in the deck, right? ;)
