I like your take here. I think you've made some good decisions on inclusions. Some things to think about though...
Aside from providing some redundancy to your reanimation game plan, Sun titan provides infinite enter and leaves the battlefield triggers with Fiend Hunter and a sac outlet.
Fiend hunter enters, targets the Sun titan. If Fiend Hunter dies, sun titan returns, targets the Fiend Hunter, which enters and Targets the Sun titan.
Sun titan also provides some late game land ramp with cards like Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse or Wayfarer's Bauble and also provide non-creature reanimation for important non-creature cards like Reconnaissance and Altar of Dementia if they get removed.
Ankle Shanker's ability doesn't work upon reanimation by Alesha as she enters already attacking. Unless it's a pet card, I'd drop it.
You only have 7 Swamps, including dual lands with the Swamp type. Crypt Ghast just doesn't have enough to work with and should be cut.
I find Dimir House Guard to be severely underplayed in Alesha decks. It has evasion to help keep it alive, discards itself, and tutors for any number of great cards. Need a field wipe? Dusk / Dawn. Ramp and card draw? Solemn Simulacrum, More Mana? Smothering Tithe. Evasion? Iroas, God of Victory.
Anyway, good luck playing the best commander who smiles at death ;)

Kinda a weak card maybe, but Dimir House Guard can transmute into a variety of useful cards in your deck. I'd love to run another Puzzle Box in this deck. 3 mana is steep, but it's not as bad as Diabolic, and if you need it, it's a 2/3 fear I suppose.

Dimir House Guard has the text "Sacrifice a creature: regenerate Dimir House Guard" Does this mean I can only sacrifice a creature to him when he would be destroyed? Or that I can sacrifice any of my creatures to him at instant speed whenever I want and just letting the "regenerate" clause fizzle? Asking because I'm thinking about an interaction with Necrotic Ooze and having an altar on a stick works perfectly

Boza: Hey sorry for the delay, but I kept getting distracted by "real life" this week. Now that I've got time, I love the idea of using the cow! =D
Also, I felt like the Cow, Grave Scrabbler and Stinkweed Imp needed more ways to get "online." The only card in the deck that can discard other cards is Tortured Existence, and at 4/60th of the deck, if you don't see it, then I feel there should be a backup redundancy for the combo.
P.S. I think this deck may be listed as "Standard" because the site told me all my suggestions weren't legal in Standard.
