Collective Effort would also work to tap your guys, but for more utility

Thanks WItC ! Really appreciate the feedback! it's just so hard for me to take out a card like Chaplain's Blessing being that it's only ! Especially since the deck is about life gain! However, I do agree that the Spawnbinder Mage may be a little expensive for its effect. I may go ahead and take that out and maybe replace it with Call the Gatewatch so I can easily fetch my Ob Nixilis Reignited ?!

@iAzire Sorry thaht I forgot to reply, I'm gonna play the deck again this weekend. The deck worked pretty well last time with the deck list above. I also bought Deadeye Navigator and all the other cards I thought I could probably use.
I'm thinking about removing Obelisk of Urd, Adaptive Automaton, Spawnbinder Mage and also maybe Veteran Warleader and Angelic Captain. They aren't helpful as it seems to me. I will probably include deadeye, Brago, King Eternal, Conspiracy, Flameshadow Conjuring and Progenitor Mimic. I'm gonna playtest the deck as it still is tomorrow again and will decide afterwards.
Did you finsih your deck yet?

Waaaay too many cards. The closer to 60 the better.
You might want to ditch these ones: Allied Reinforcements, Drana's Chosen, Emeria Shepherd, Kor Entanglers, Relief Captain, Resupply, Spawnbinder Mage, and Zulaport Chainmage. Those ones, among a few of the others, are definitely not worth including. You should also cut down to 22 or so lands.
Things to consider doing: add another March from the Tomb or a Rally the Ancestors, x4 Zulaport Cutthroat, x3 Drana's Chosen, x4 Cliffhaven Vampire, x2 Drana, Liberator of Malakir, x4 Kalastria Healer, etc.
There are a lot of these decks floating around. They work really well but the must be fine tuned.

So this was my 3rd pre release EVER, and I won!! XD
My promo was the beautiful Linvala, the Preserver, and pulled: General Tazri (which in hindsight I should have added to my deck but whatevs), Undergrowth Champion, Void Winnower, Stone Haven Outfitter and some other off colour rare.
SO naturally I went Esper Lifegain Allies, as there were plenty of great cards in all of those 3 colours (but very little in anything else).
MVP went to Linvala, as I often ended up behind in board presence and life as I had to stall out the opponent until I could drain them for game. To this effect, + was the best combo of the deck, and Spawnbinder Mage was great for the stall. Also pulled great removal, with two copies of both Stasis Snare and Oblivion Strike, as well as one Roil Spout and Searing Light, the latter of which I took out after discovering most decks there had more big stuff than anything. Prophet of Distortion was best one drop, as he provided much needed draw power- often times I drew an additional 2 cards per turn, which landed me my bombs and combo pieces. Void Winnower was an amazing finisher.
Round 1: Loss-Win-Win. This was against my friend there, who is almost usually better than me.
Round 2: Same again, Loss-Win-Win. My loss here was due mostly to me missing out on essential scrys from my two Seer's Lanterns. Also, World Breaker exiling both of my Unknown Shores kinda killed me with my distinct lack of at the time.
Round 3: Loss-Win. We went to time in the second round, as both of us ended up stalling the other to death. Which, broke my heart, when, upon emerging from the tank, I found out everyone had ordered pizza and I didn't even realise o-o also this guy was who came second, with the exact same score as me. He was definitely better than me, so the fact that I duelled him worked in my favour (something to do with how all the people I had faced were in top 8, whilst fewer of his were)
Round 4: Win-Win. Completely effortless. The guy was running esper as well, but nothing he did seemed to be... relevant.
I pulled from my prize packs: Oath of Nissa, Oath of Gideon, two Eldrazi Displacer (but the foil one I traded for Matter Reshaper and Deceiver of Form), Hedron Alignment, Sea Gate Wreckage, Zendikar Resurgent , Munda's Vanguard and Thought-Knot Seer, Deepfathom Skulker and Gladeheart Cavalry.

Jwari Shapeshifter to copy one of your allies? Captain's Claws for steady Ally input..Oath of Gideon and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar?Spawnbinder Mage to tap your enemies creatures with some tokens...Obelisk of Urd to pump just your own creaturesStoneforge Masterwork also for an unbelievable pump
I think that's everything for the moment, I hope I could help you with this :)
