Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Discussion

All I know is that this new ruling really mucks up my Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Tiny Leaders deck.

Best answer to field wipes is to wipe the field first.
But if you really wanna be aggro you could try Karn, Silver Golem. doesnt seem like an aggro commander I suppose but I've lost track of how many times I ended games by animating 20 artifacts and turning them 90 degrees. Its tough to keep instant speed board wipe ready for that. Still you need indestructible to back it up, things like Soul of New Phyrexia and Eldrazi Monument really help, soooo many destroy artifact effects...
Saskia the Unyielding is a great aggro commander lacking only blue gives you everything you could possibly want and more. Plus you can actually do enough damage to close a game with aggro.
Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is a good aggroish commander though tends more towards combo for a competitive list. she does allow easy reanimation cheaply to recover from a wipe. i find it is much easier to reanimate after a wipe then it is to always hold onto an answer for a wipe. you wont always be able to have Boros Charm available so bringing stuff back is much easier.

what Dave_Icaria says, mostly. Besides, your current set-up is very vulnerable to disruption, because the cards rely on each other so much. Little experiment: Try goldfishing, but assume that you are Thoughtseized on turn 1 for your best card, that your best land is Ghost Quartered on turn 2, and your best creature is hit by a Lightning Bolt at the worst possible time in turn 3 (I like this test, as all of these things is something you can expect in modern, even if not in the same game). See if you still have a coherent game plan.
If you don't play this competitively, it still needs a bit of adjustment.
You can go more burn-like or more creature-like, but either way, what you have now has too high variance. If you want to go more burn-like, add a Monastery Swiftspear, a Lightning Bolt, a full set of Lava Spike and remove anything that doesn't directly try to kill your opponent (Center Soul for example, is useless in an aggro deck mainboard).
Other cards that are too slow: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death. Played at 3 cmc in a deck with no acceleration, attacking in turn 4, and then eating up another 2 mana to use her special ability, which may or may not be relevant. And she has toughness 2.
Both of the gideons are too slow for actual aggro. Making tokens is a grindy process. You might win that way, but then you need a more grindy plan, where you build up advantage on the board over several turns.
If you really want to do something funny, that could work well, you could go for much more prowess. Add more Monastery Mentor, a full set of Young Pyromancer, and stay with 4 Monastery Swiftspear. Add to that as many cheap spells as you can, both something a bit unusual (hint: phyrexian mana is your friend) and the best one-cmc spells in modern (Lightning Bolt, Path to Exile). It's not a fully competitive deck, but I suspect that it could do quite well at fnms.

Thanks for the kind words landofMordor! So after I said I was looking for two more sac outlets, I decided to put Carrion Feeder in to give a try, I am wanting to get my curve as low as possible so that the deck can pick up a little bit quicker. I'm going back and forth between Scarland Thrinax and Bloodflow Connoisseur. My struggle feels a little silly; I love the flavor text on the Thrinax and I like that he enters the field as a 2/2, but the Connoisseur feels like it may be a slightly easier cast since I only have to have two colorless and a Swamp. I'm thinking I may just buy both and try each out to see which fits better since they are cheap cards. I'm glad you like the Phytotitan choice so much! I really like it, and have wanted to make use of the card for a while but didn't see where he would be useful. Enter Kresh. I was play-testing yesterday and had a silly amount of counters on Kresh because I had Death's Presence, Kresh the Bloodbraided, Phytotitan, and Carrion Feeder on the board. It was glorious.
I'm not sure I agree with you on the Rakshasa Deathdealer being a weak point, I'll need you to clarify your logic on that one. I like the fact that I can pay his regenerate cost and sac him to feed Kresh just to do it again. I don't know, I may find in games that I want that mana for something else. We shall see. In playtesting, I was actually less pleased to see Reaper of the Wilds. Again, I may change my mind after playing some actual games. I don't plan on changing too much until after I have tried it out beyond taking out Fireshrieker for either a sac outlet, Mycoloth, or Sifter of Skulls. And Terastodon will be coming out for Bane of Progress, like I said in my previous comment.
Out of the counter synergy cards you suggested, I think I like the Ridgescale Tusker the best out of the budget choices. I really.... really.... like Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, but then I am a big fan of repeatable stuff in my EDH decks. I may end up caving and purchasing a copy of her, it depends on when she rotates out of standard. I could not find a date on that.
Oh yeah, I was really curious what your thoughts are on Kumano, Master Yamabushi, Ulvenwald Tracker, and Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet. I'm not sure how I feel about the Tracker, 1/1 creatures always feel so fragile to me. Especially in a world where you have Atraxa and people that run Contagion Engine..... I hate the Engine. Especially when playing my Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck.
No worries on your response time! I have entirely too much time on my hands man. I got out of the Army last year and right now I am just going to school two days out of the week and interning at a chiropractor's office 3 hours a night 3 days a week. Idle hands are the devil's playground and all that ya know.

Hey DarkEclipse18, thank you for your kind words!
If you're talking about that new Dusk || Dawn card from Amonkhet, yes, i have high hopes for that!About your card suggestions, Strionic Resonator is already in the deck and insanely versatile for both doubling Alesha, Who Smiles at Death triggers as well as the triggered abilities of her friends.As far as Panharmonicon goes i'm a little undecided. It does insane things in my Brago, King Eternal deck, but in this deck "only" 16/35 of my creatures have ETB-triggers, i'll propably have to play test it, but my guess it's a little too conditional.
If you're playing an adjusted version of my list, let me know, i'd be interested in your tweaks.
