eastly on Ally Drain

I'm going to make hella recommendations for cards here. I'm not really sure what your budget is so I'll include cards that fall into the budget and non budget categories (Non budget mostly being a reasonable price, not the most optimal cards that tend to cost a ton of money.)
Mana Base Show
Next is your mana base, you have the Ally Encampments which is good, but I would look into picking up a playset of dual lands to round out the manabase a little more. My go to budget option is: Scoured Barrens
Deck Focus and How Many Copies to Play Show
TLDR: Every deck has themes that it uses to acheive it's goals, a deck can have sub-themes as well. For example, this is a Drain Deck with life gain and ally sub-themes. Almost every card should in some way compliment AT LEAST one of these strategies, Ideally every single card compliments the main theme, and builds upon one of the sub-themes. However, exceptions can be made. The question you have to ask yourself is: Does this card compliment my main theme? If not, is this card strong enough on it's own to warrent weakening my main theme
I'll give you the following advice, but I'll be vague so you can apply the theory yourself. I think that you have too many copies of Ondu Cleric but I don't think you should drop all of them. You should have at most 4 cards that cost 5 Mana. Cards that only serve to gain life are worth running only if they get incredibly powerful.
Cards you should know exist Show
PS: You have 61 cards rn

So from what im getting this seems to be forming around multiple instances of gaining life, which then proc's OTB effects. With that in mind I have a few suggestions:

Just a quick question: why is Trophy Mage in here? The only targets are Chromatic Lantern and Orzhov Cluestone. These are not an ideal target. Something more like Sword of Light and Shadow or Sword of War and Peace. That would synergize great with all the lifegain. Also, Serene Steward works great in my lifegain builds.

Just lower the mana curve for modern, u got to many win card and missing utility cards.all of this is only my opinion, your deck is already nice and spicy but i this there is to many pay and tap + instant at 2-3 mana

Looks pretty darn incredible to me; +1!
You seem to go for budget, but just in case that it's just a coincidence that this deck is so cheap, I would probably switch out one of the Augur il-Vec's and one Serene Steward to bring in two Serra Ascendant's. There are so many ways for you to get to 30 life quickly, that these will really pay off.
Have a nice Christmas and End-Of_Year celebration!

@Despite_Myself: Your feedback is appreciated. Chandra's Ignition is already in the deck, but I will consider side boarding Temur Battle Rage for 1v1 matches with friends. Arguel's Blood Fast though I think you miss the point of the cards inclusion. It is a better for of Greedthat utilizes the extra life as a no penalty cost much like my commander and cards like Toxic Deluge, Necropotence, Erebos, God of the Dead, and Dark Confidant.
