nothing like flamerush, mostly just ~ attacks it gets (see Boros Elite)

Combat Celebrant is arguably a faster aurelia (combo on t4) but its much more fragile/blockable

Conduit of Storms  Flip, Hardened Berserker and Herald of War make things cheaper / mana

Knotvine Paladin has some potential as you can stack the triggers so your stuff is all untapped (similarly Xenagos, God of Revels, Sublime Archangel

I played Alesha briefly myself, you can take a look at the list i built here.
If you want to remove more cards, Hardened Berserker, Boros Elite, Bloodsoaked Champion, Zurgo Bellstriker, Wojek Halberdiers, Griffin Dreamfinder, Act of Treason, Launch the Fleet and 1-2 basic lands would be my suggestions.
A few cards that allow you to sacrifice creatures for value would likely be useful, for example Goblin Bombardment, Blasting Station, Altar of Dementia, Grim Haruspex or Goblin Sharpshooter.

All right so like I said last night, you want threats that work great with both Collected Company and Nahiri, the Harbinger. Also you have a little bit of an ally sub-theme going on here... I'm not sure if that's the best way to go but I'll list quite a few creatures for you to consider in your build.

  • Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip: 3 mana, and if you're using Nahiri it's likely late enough in the game that you can flip her and in doing so leave her on the field.

  • Vryn Wingmare: You have a really low spell base and a fairly cheap costing one. It is a good flying threat and can seriously disrupt an opponent's tempo.

  • Caustic Caterpillar: Good utility creature, not game winning but I'd consider him for the sideboard.

  • Dragonmaster Outcast: Stupid good late game value, he also helps attract removal away from some of your other creatures and only costs one

  • Thraben Inspector: Great little weenie that gives you card draw later in the game when you want it.

  • Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit: Stupid good value for obvious reasons. Also note that you get to pick the order for CoCo so always lay this one down first if you decide to add it in.

  • Consul's Lieutenant: Obvious value here, double white is sad, but CoCo helps a lot with that.

  • Citadel Castellan: Nice value, not the best target for Nahiri but can be pretty powerful in it's own right.

  • Crater Elemental: Nice sac ability, really devastating late game if you fetch it with Nahiri after you've got a lot of creatures out.

  • Deathmist Raptor: 3/3's with Deathtouch are never to be underestimated. Especially if your deck is capable of bring it back with Den Protector.

  • Hardened Berserker: This can offset Vryn Wingmare really well and can just ramp out a lot of value for you.

  • Kolaghan Forerunners: Another card to help scale off the number of creatures you have, Veteran Warleader would be a better fit though if you keep the ally sub-theme.

The deck seems rather solid and if CoCo wasn't about to circulate out I might have tried to build it. Hope these creatures help give you an idea for improvements.

The deck looks pretty good, but I don't entirely agree with okolnir's suggestions.

I would cut all of the copies of Ravenous Leucrocota, Volcanic Geyser and Hardened Berserker (they just don't pull their weight enough), and up the number of copies of your big creatures (Balefire Dragon in particular). Archetype of Aggression needs to have more than one copy :)

Omnath, Locus of Mana is actually a pretty nasty card and deals a LOT of damage, but has no evasion or protection or anything. He's almost more useful for saving mana than for attacking.

I'd also consolidate a bit and move up to 4 copies of most of the cards (many cards have redundant functions here; I'd choose just one to do a job).

What kind of decks do you play against? The description doesn't tell too much about your goals with the deck, unfortunately.

I like it! You get a +1 from me.

No, I'm studying library science :D Yes, I just exalted your deck, but I have a few suggestions:

Hardened Berserker can help you fill your battlefield faster.

Iroas, God of Victory is a monster, on aggro it is even better.

And I know Rubblebelt Raiders is half green, but it is a +1/+1 counters machine and you can pay only red!

I think you could invest more on battle tricks, it's a very aggresive deck, but you have very few strategy counters! Something like Make a Stand to protect all your creatures and fortify that double strike beasts of yours.
