First of all, with this high CMC you need 24 lands.

While I understand you are trying to sacrifice your creatures for beneficial effects, the high converted mana cost of your deck makes it kind of hard to work with.

Here are some lower cost creatures that could be good:

Augur of SkullsBasal Sliver (mana accelerator to cast Ruthless Deathfang faster)Bile UrchinBlind ZealotBlood BairnBloodthrone VampireCarrier Thrall (mana accelerator, 2x creature)Corpse HaulerDeath CultistDemonic Taskmaster (need tokens spawn everyturn)Devouring SwarmWestvale Abbey  Flip This is a must have.Disciple of Griselbrand Save yourself.Doomed Necromancer Worth it.Eldrazi Skyspawner Mana acceleratorFont of ReturnFume SpitterGnawing ZombieGutless GhoulMerciless ExecutionerMortician Beetle -------> Cause why not.Nezumi Bone-Reader ControlPawn of Ulamog mana acceleratorQarsi SadistQuest for the GravelordThoughtpicker Witch controlThrull Surgeon controlVampiric RitesVoracious Null

Skirsdag High Priest Isn't this amazing?

I would say skulk, fear/intimidate, and landwalk abilities.

Vampire Cutthroat, Cover of Darkness, Blind Zealot, Trailblazer's Boots.

Alesha needs a good number of creatures to work best, i think you should definitely play more than 30. Some suggestions (not all of them creatures): Ponyback Brigade, Duplicant, Karmic Guide, Blind Zealot, Buried Alive, Bone Shredder, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Siege-Gang Commander, Marsh Flitter, Filth, Nahiri's Machinations, Skullclamp, Swords to Plowshares, Hanweir Battlements.
I think you should cut Hold at Bay, Avenging Arrow, Show of Valor, Safe Passage, Messenger's Speed, Lava Axe, Great Teacher's Decree, Flurry of Horns, Spite of Mogis, March of the Returned. None of those are good cards.
As far as protection of Alesha goes, Emerge Unscathed and Center Soul seem like two good options that you are missing, rebound makes them better than Gods Willing.

I had a couple more ideas for you, some are a little pricey though: Mother of Runes is super cheap, has lots of synergy with Alesha, but is also great in case Alesha is not there.
Nahiri, the Harbinger allows you to dig through your deck, discard creatures to get them into play on the cheap via Alesha, incidentally answers creatures, artifacts and enchantments, and even has a relevant ultimate ability.
Reliquary Monk is not quite Reclamation Sage, but close enough.
Blind Zealot works great with Alesha, and is also cheap enough to just cast it.

I would make the deck revolve more around Marchesa, protecting her via shroud/hexproof while abusing the Dethrone ability to make unblockable creatures bigger and bigger. (basically, I would go more aggro...)

Flavor-wise: Bite of the Black Rose, Vial of Poison, Crown of Doom (fits with Dethrone and it can't come back to you), Whispersilk Cloak (Marchesa loves the touch of whispersilk)

Stab them in the back: Benthic Infiltrator, Deathcult Rogue, Dimir Infiltrator, Invisible Stalker, Latch Seeker, Mindmelter, Neurok Invisimancer, Shadowmage Infiltrator, True-Name Nemesis, Stronghold Overseer (<3)

Potentially useful creatures: Mardu Shadowspear (annoying), Flesh Carver (sac outlet and more), Blind Zealot, Shadowborn Demon.

I could find some use/space for: Marchesa's Smuggler, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Indulgent Tormentor, Defiler of Souls, Prince of Thralls, Merciless Executioner, Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis, Olivia Voldaren($$$)

UGH: Butcher of Malakir, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos

Unleash!: Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, Carnival Hellsteed

Sac Outlets: Demonmail Hauberk/Grafted Wargear, Barrage of Expendables, Blazing Hellhound, Culling Dais, Bloodthrone Vampire, Vampiric Rites, Tymaret, the Murder King

Marchesa + sacrifice enabler +: Act of Treason, Threaten, Traitorous Blood, Word of Seizing, Conquering Manticore, Dominus of Fealty, Harness by Force, Mass Mutiny, Molten Primordial (it even has a crown!), Zealous Conscripts, Slave of Bolas, Soul Ransom

Draw Engines: Staff of Nin, Greed (remember dethrone won't work if you are the one with most life), Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, Bloodgift Demon

Removal: Murder, Syphon Flesh, Killing Wave, Innocent Blood, Bone Splinters

Extras: Glaring Spotlight, Invisibility/Aqueous Form, Teleportal, Rakdos Riteknife, Reign of the Pit, Soulblast (finisher?), Ring of Xathrid, Treacherous Urge, Jinxed Idol

Chaos: Rite of the Raging Storm, Whims of the Fates

There's some sweet removal for Orzhov like Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate, Utter End, Unmake, Silence the Believers and Mortify.

Some of my favorite creatures in my own Athreos deck are Kami of False Hope, Karmic Guide, Blind Zealot, Ashen Rider, Vampire Hexmage, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

Oh, and Phyrexian Reclamation is great. Garuntees you get the creature back one way or another.

Also, the Kami is just fantastic. It's great at sending big attacks at someone else, and is easy to recur. Especially with an ally or someone low on life.
