Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Discussion

phosphorous? Purphoros, God of the Forge?
Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is pretty good for this kind of idea. use creatures that when they etb they make tokens like Grave Titan or Ponyback Brigade. Thesquishy has a solid example of such a deck Alesha Re-animator.

I don't like Angelic Page, he has to to use his ability, where Exalted is immediate. He can pump a blocker, but not sure the +1/+1 is worth it.
I'd probably rather have a Neurok Stealthsuit (Shroud) over a single use Favor of the Overbeing (Vigilance/Flying). Even if you don't have the for attach, just pay equip. It's not bad, but Exalted/Shroud/Hex are more valuable in single removal scenarios, especially if your sorcery +'s them. Have to reply on the protection spells to save them.
Skarrg Goliath CMC7 Bloodrush at least is instant, Enlarge you'll have to be sure to have the CMC5 + a protection spell (or shroud/hex) before engaging that. Why does it have a monster kitten in the pic!
You should have lots of blockers (the exalted crew), Guardian of the Gateless is a flying blocker, but dont think you need this ability. Palace Guard is even worse with no flying, Fog instead it's the same thing pretty much. Since neither has Exalted anyway.
Banishing Light is similar to Oblivion Ring and doesn't carry the $2 burden of Journey to Nowhere. If you planning on Infinite Combo off of the the ETB/LTB of Journey to Nowhere then keep it, if not, I would just go with Banishing Light (even though it can't infinite combo)
Pentarch Ward feels missing, it gives Pro-Color of your choice, the best part is it draws a card to replace itself (and you can still choose white). Never hurts you because of the draw, unless they remove the creature in response.

How about dude tribal where all the cards just seem like cool dudes or female tribal I think that ones self explanatory maybe use Alesha, Who Smiles at Death for the commander

Not saying it wouldn't make a solid deck, just that I don't think it is enough on its own for a cEDH deck. Adding a recursion trigger would certainty help, but the trigger on combat damage would be a huge drawback. As of the current list, only one creature in tier 2.5+ has an ability that triggers on combat damage--Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder. Yidris has everything it needs to make that work--trample, an ability which gives you card advantage, and access to cEDH's best colours.
Making it an on attack ability would go a long way toward making a competitive creature, but, at that point, we're just recreating Alesha, Who Smiles at Death. While it would be possible to make a better version of Alesha justifying the lack of Black, the card would not be particularly exciting.
In all fairness, looking at my late-night rattling off of ideas, I do not think any of my suggestions would be enough on their own either. Given the prevalence of extremely swift combos, something more debilitating might be necessary. Since Red/White will never be as efficient at card draw/other aspects of the game, perhaps instead our hypothetical commander should take lessons from what Red and White does well. Placing either Blood Moon or Aven Mindcensor's ability on an aggressively costed commander would be a strong place to start. After all, if you can't beat your opponent's at their own game, you can always break their advantages.

@seshiro_of_the_orochi Thanks! I did consider Zurgo Bellstriker and I think you're right that I should get them in there so that a turn 2 Mindblade Render could start drawing me cards. I considered Brighthearth Banneret too and originally decided cost reduction wasn't as important in a deck that effectively tops out at 5 CMC, but the cost reduction would help me play multiple small creatures in a turn and use up the extra cards that I'll draw. I think that's a good idea and I'll probably try to get them in there. Flamerush Rider doesn't do much, you're right, it's gone! Ignition Team is in there because Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can bring it back, and it would be quite large in a multiplayer setting (and scary with Double Strike) but I think you're right that it should be cut. Cutting Zurgo Helmsmasher I could see, basically all he does is whack really hard but he'd die to removal real quick; he does hit really hard though. Garna, the Bloodflame is the one I'm most reluctant to cut, she can save all my dudes when someone board wipes, and she's great as a follow up to Last One Standing. Thanks again for your suggestions, I think they'll make the deck quicker and better!

Can I suggest Alesha, Who Smiles at Death as another way to synergise with cards that fill your graveyard, as well as recurring your creatures who died? Additionally, it works well with Avalanche Riders (from the sideboard) as a recurring land destruction strategy.
As for removal, I would personally go with more Lightning Bolt and Lightning Helix than Path to Exile. The rationale is that they offer direct damage that would help you close the game out (since you are most likely the aggro deck). But of course I understand that Path hits everything and is a cleaner answer.

Marionette Master is exactly the kind of payoff I was looking for. I think when I build this it will be with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death so I can actually just cheat the marionette master (and other combo cards) out. All those others that have been mentioned may make a spot too
