Anointed Procession wouldn't help enough here, it wouldn't do much at all unless your making big construct tokens which are usually enough alone. This deck is all about putting creatures on the table and can't afford to take a turn off for anything less then a board wipe or lots of card draw.

Very interesting brew. 2 of my favorite standard cards are Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter and Sylvan Advocate. I love Oviya because she seems so innocuous and people rarely want to waste removal(even if they do I am normally more than happy with that trade) on her and then she starts making 5/5s and 8/8s and the game is over quickly after that. Advocate is just so good and has kind of been forgotten the past several standard seasons since Collected Company rotated, but it is still a very powerful magic card. While it is colorless, I would consider adding Hostile Desert to take advantage of Advocates ability. I think you will have plenty of lands to exile since you probably discard some lands with Stern Constable and once you are at 6 lands attacking with a 5/6 is pretty insane. I know you mentioned Thraben Inspector above, but having the extra card draw seems more valuable than the extra point of power from the gargoyle. And while not a huge deal, triggering revolt for the Narnam Renegade would be a nice bonus. Just something to consider, but if your current list works then it works. Nice deck and Happy Brewing!

Thanks for the suggestions, Hostile Desert is interesting, but the manabase is actually strained already, the deck could use even more green mana for Lifecrafter's Bestiary and it's too heavy into white to cut any Plains, also The dual lands need a lot of basics to enter untapped. I've tried a Westvale Abbey Flip and found it's not worth giving up the land spot.
I've tried Thraben Inspector several times now and found that it's only good when things go bad. When things are going as statistically expected the deck draws so many cards that the clue isn't worth much at all. Also consider the deck is generally strong against control and Thraben Gargoyle Flip is better against aggro.
Generally I'm not going to be in favour of any card that dilutes the decks main strategy, part of that strategy is low-variance reliability as opposed to some higher-varience combo.

Bygone Bishop seems like he would fit well, he acts like extra copies of bestiary that can swing

Bygone Bishop is interesting, but I think I'd only want the extra card draw against Control decks which would love a big creature target. At 3 mana it's a way bigger target then anything else in the deck.

I really like the build, upvoted! I was going to recommend Prowling Serpopard for the sideboard, but then I realized your opponent isn't really hurting your Dusk / Dawn plan if they counter your creatures and put them into your graveyard.
