A good trick for getting more punch out of Alesha is to run guys who have more power than their printed stats might indicate. For instance, Arcbound Overseer has 0 power when he's in the graveyard, but as soon as you return him, he's attacking for 6! Other examples include Clockwork Dragon, Drakestown Forgotten, Nighthowler, Sewer Nemesis, Thought Gorger, Ignition Team, Crovax the Cursed and Workhorse. Your opponents will be surprised how often "2 or less" won't feel like it!
Other cards that fit your general strategy include Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and Unearth, which can return a lot of the same cards as Alesha. You might also want more removal, such as Bone Shredder, Ravenous Baboons and Garza's Assassin. Good luck!

Another few possibilities: Noosegraf Mob, Zombie Master, From Under the Floorboards (if its not too much work), Ever After, Dark Salvation (also may be too much work), Undead Alchemist, Lotleth Troll, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Diregraf Colossus, and Drakestown Forgotten.

Hey there! Thanks for looking at my deck (Let 'em Die [Primer: Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker])! Here's some general suggestions for you:
Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are amazing token producers. The eldrazi tokens they make can be used for mana ramping, and can sacrifice themselves for death triggers. Neat! I'm testing out the Fabricate abilities of Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Marionette Master as well.
Smothering Abomination, Harvester of Souls, and Grim Haruspex are great for generating card draw for every creature that dies. Vampiric Rites is a 1-drop enchantment (kinda hard to remove) that gives you card draw. Maybe take out the one-time use spells like Read the Bones for these.
I personally like Deathgreeter over Bottle Gnomes, and it has pretty consistently done a higher amount of life gain. Zulaport Cutthroat is a must-have, IMO. It's often my quickest wincon. Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Falkenrath Noble are good for this too, if you have ways to reduce their power to recur them.
You do have a fair number of things with >1 power, or that boost their power. I might recommend Plagued Rusalka, Fume Spitter, and/or Necropede as ways to reduce the power of your bigger creatures, or as a form of removal against your opponents. Maybe instead of Drakestown Forgotten.
You have a lot of discard effects (which is good!), but several of them are sorcery speed (Sadistic Hypnotist, Brain Weevil, Augur of Skulls) or need to be paid for (Drainpipe Vermin). Or that don't recur at all Sadistic Augermage. I might recommend more stuff like Noxious Toad, Mesmeric Fiend, or Disciple of Phenax. That can be used on each opponents turn.
Scarblade Elite doesn't work unless you have another Assassin in graveyard, and only up to 4 times max, and doesn't even recur itself under Shirei. And I like Dutiful Attendant over things like Death Denied or Gravepurge. Maybe look into Living Death as well?
Hope that's not too much info! Welcome to the Perpetual Weenie Murder Club!

B4BY3ATER I have the same problem when I play Marchesa, the Black Rose. Disciple of Griselbrand works wonders on that field. Also I've reuploaded my deck with some great additions. Scourge of the Throne, Bearer of the Heavens and Insurrection are game winning cards in a Marchesa, the Black Rose Deck. Drakestown Forgotten is also a great card the longer the game lasts. Being able to deal with pesky indestructibles and Pumping itself up by dying over and over.
Besides that I'm currently working on a Grenzo, Dungeon Warden deck.
