Playing this in my local meta has been a blast. So far it's been a world of problems for

My only think with Hope is that it does have to connect. If you are up against a Talrand, Sky Summoner deck, then good luck getting in. It is also able to be blown up by something saced to a Goblin Bombardment or even a Staff of Nin.
In my own deck, I don't run nearly as many mana rocks. I could probably start cutting lands, since I usually hit alot during game play, it can get rough once in a while.
With cards like Blood Moon or Winter Orb effects, people here tend to kill you first. I also run very little land hate, in the form of Avalanche Riders. Primarily, I'll use it to get rid of lands that tap for two or stuff like a Gaea's cradle or Nyxthos to stop the massive mana ramp.
As mentioned, Rule I personally like more so than Canonist, but that is just meta based. I personally removed Gonti from my list. It was fine, but then you end up targeting one or two people and it gets harder when you purposely piss someone off.
Alesha is certainly a versatile commander. Not alot of people see a D&T build with her so it makes for fun games. My main issue is when I'm ready to try and close out a game, I likely HAVE to combo to do it, which can be a problem if you use Buried Alive to throw something like Guide and Ark in to win.

Linky to Saffron Olive's Budget R/G Land Destruction.
I highly recommend starting with that shell.
Four CMC land destruction spells are kind of "meh" in Modern. I think the only ones really worth playing maindeck are Reap and Sow, Avalanche Riders, and Mwonvuli Acid-Moss. All the others are generally sideboard material.

Hey there tatchison. I like your Alesha deck! She is my main squeeze. So I was wondering how your deck does with mana ramp and creature removal. If you are hurting in those areas, I have a few suggestions.
For removal, I like the fact that you have Fiend Hunter in here. The fact that you can abuse his wording for repeated exile of your opponents creatures is fantastic. If you like him, you can also use Faceless Butcher in the exact same way. Another creature that is great with Alesha is Stingscourger. I am a huge fan of creatures with echo in this build since they kindly kill themselves for reanimation purposes.
For a little bit of ramp, I know they are a little off budget but Sword of the Animist and Solemn Simulacrum are great with her as well. Anything to give Alesha a small little pump is totally worth it.
Two other things. In addition to a little pump, I have added Gorgon's Head to my build in place of Basilisk Collar till I can get one and I love it. I may decide to keep both in, I'm not sure yet. And I don't know what your feelings are on land destruction/theft, but I like Avalanche Riders and Herald of Leshrac to mess with my opponents
