Faithless Looting Discussion

I like the idea here, especially the Ankle Shanker, Falkenrath Marauders and Tajic, Blade of the Legion that take advantage of Alesha's ability. You seem to have a high curve for a deck that probably wants to come out swinging. I would increase your copies of Alesha, Who Smiles at Death to four, and then cut one of the aforementioned cards she works well with. Because both Tajic and Ankle Shanker's abilities trigger when they attack, they don't trigger from being returned to the battlefield with Alesha's ability, so I would look to cut one of those two. In their place you should add some smaller 1-2 drops, a la Daring Skyjek, Firefist Striker, etc. Furnace Scamp and Emberwilde Augur look like they could be good with Alesha. In order to get your higher CMC cards into your graveyard for Feldon and Alesha to reanimate, you ought to consider discard spells like Faithless Looting or even Buried Alive.

Some of you may have seen this already in the spoilers:
While Impulse is strictly better, this is a much welcome addition to Modern. We now have access to a instant speed draw spell that digs deep with no restrictions.
This isn't a spoiler thread, but rather I'd like to discuss the implications of having a smaller Impulse on the Modern format. In the past, Impulse was a Pro Tour winning card a la Prosperous Bloom back in '97. Hell, you'll still see the odd Impulse played every now and then today.
I think the other obvious place this card goes is in Scapeshift. While it's not Dig Through Time, the fact you can consistently cast it on turn two is key. Take my opinion with a grain of salt, however, since I've never piloted Scapeshift.
I'm hoping this is enough to see combo diversified more in the Modern format beyond all these tempo and control hybrids. Hopefully, things don't go Treasure Cruise status.
Lastly, for those wondering why this would see play and not Telling Time: unfortunately, Telling Time doesn't tuck two unwanted cards to the bottom. Sometimes, you strike gold with two cards you want. Other times, you can hit three lands when you don't need anymore than just the one. Impulse and now Anticipate fix this. You're actually hitting a much more consistent draw by tucking two cards to the bottom.

Guys, Tiblat is AMAZING. Haven't you all heard of Faithless Looting? Tibalt gets discarded to FL like a champ.

Is this budget?
Also worth noting Faithless Looting isnt just a discard enabler.. which is why its run in dredge with red. :P Thought Everyone seems to like // Dredge lately.
A +1/+1 counter, that Is nice that you can discard.. Or a hand that isnt playable that can either dig your combo up through scry, or just start plinkering your opponent with sacrifices..
Just ideas though. Since this isnt traditional dredgevine. :P

If you're willing to splash green there's Signal the Clans.
If you're willing to splash black there's alot of tutors you could use, although they're mostly expensive and black heavy.

I just saw Sundial of the Infinite the first time the other day in a Geist deck... it never hit me it would be a good fit with these elementals. I was never really happy to see Faithless Looting when I drew it since I never had two cards I wanted to ditch. Wild Guess should be better.
