hoardofnotions on Alesha, Who Smiles at Death..... and Savings

Vona's Hunger could be better than doom blade or unlicensed disintegration.

Swords to Plowshares might be able to fit in on the budget

Custodi Soulbinders could be fun to swing out on a full board

Magmasaur repeatable board wipe?

Seekers' Squire could explore for value

Banewhip Punisher is repeatable creature kill

Emissary of Sunrise probably to expensive CMC, but i think i like explore in your deck

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden most of your creatures have 2 power, this seems great!

Herald of Leshrac if you wanna be mean, but funny at the same time!

Solemn Recruit could get big fast

Taurean Mauler could get big fast

Vampire Hexmage planswalker hate

Rally the Ancestors could be clever. get your combo into the grave, play this and win!

Mask of Memory help filter your draws

I wanna re-suggest Key to the City and Vampiric Rites. card draw is good

Dauthi Mindripper might be better than delirium skeins

Maybe cut

drana, liberator of malakir for budget reasons

Hi, I have a Gitrog deck of my own. What I think would improve your deck:
Mesmeric Orb It's a bit pricey but amazing with gitrog as the milling is done one card at a time.
Gaea's Blessing If you happen to mill it you'll shuffle Graveyard with Library, this is a the third layer of protection to avoid milling myself to death which happened to me several times before with previous builds of this deck.
Key to the City Discard a card to smash your opponent with Gitrog or your biggest creature, was it a land? the draw a card, and another on your upkeep. This card has become a staple of many of my decks.
Roar of Challenge kill up to six creatures of an opponent thanks to Gitrog's Deathtouch.
Constant Mists I almos feel bad using this card with Gitrog... almost!
Spitting Spider and Grotesque Hybrid to have some dissuade flyers of coming my way and another land sac outlet and discard outlet.
Stinkweed Imp another great flyer dissuader with high Dredge, I don't run it anymore on this deck because discarding it over and over to Skirge Familiar and finishing the game with Exsanguinate wasn't my playstyle, so I took most of the dredge and discard outlets.
Herald of Leshrac Hi, can I borrow your land for a while... ups, it broke!

You can check the rest of my deck here Deadly Gitrog

Needle Specter Blighted Agent(Infect creatures could be a sub-theme here) and Invisible Stalker come to mind.

You can also use TScarabG to get around impractical costs with powerful abilities. Herald of Leshrac and some of the Leviathan and Kraken cards fit this.

Hi!Great deck! +1

I think that You should add Entomb. It is a very good tutor on instant speed for Alesha's reanimation ability

Duplicant is a legal target for her ability and he is a good removal tool. Herald of Leshrac for more mana denial. And why You don't run Demonic Tutor/Gamble and Thoughtseize?

Another good stax/protection cards - Grand Abolisher, Stranglehold

Coward_Token on Aleshatralala. Back and forth from the graveyard.

Did a quick 3-or-less-power search on Gatherer with Alesha's color identity and started from the highest CMC, see if there's anything that interests you below and disregard any crap.

Herald of Leshrac lets you ramp with style, although it needs to survive its initial fight to do so. Also, might draw too much hate

Kinda depends on your taste and/or meta, but the more aggressive Ankle Shanker can replace Archetype of Finality

Thief of Blood is a situational but potentially powerful answer vs e.g. planeswalkers

Raving Dead seems fun, especially since Alesha can direct its initial attack. Dunno if it's going to be worth it over time though

ClockworkSwordfish on Weenies Who Smile At Death

If you want some late game punch, the trick with Alesha is to run creatures who are much bigger than their printed stats suggest! For instance, Arcbound Overseer, Clockwork Dragon, Sewer Nemesis and Ignition Team all have 0 power while they're in the graveyard, but much more when they come into play. It can almost feel dirty, but nothing beats the feeling of paying two mana to reanimate your Pentavus.

Other creatures worth considering include Garza's Assassin (you can kill a creature every turn!), Thought Gorger for the potential size and ability to discard other reanimation targets, Ravenous Baboons, Herald of Leshrac, Flayer of the Hatebound, Epochrasite, Clone Shell, Bone Shredder, Nighthowler, Murderous Redcap... plenty of nasty creatures that have good synergy with Alesha.

To protect your commander in combat, it might also be nice to have ways to give her deathtouch. Basilisk Collar is the classic, but note that Archetype of Finality can be brought back by her ability!
