Mortify or Hero's Downfall? I can't decide which to use. Suggestions?

Wasteland Strangler is only really good in BW death and taxes. It's bad in hatebears (too slow and can't be relied on by itself) and frequently gets sided out in the Peaceful Processor build I'm running. Purely because a 3 mana sorcery bolt does like nothing. I'm probably going to remove them for Hero's Downfall (because I already run Abrupt Decay, Path, Maelstrom Pulse and Go for the Throat) to make the tron match-up better.

Very nice looking deck. It's very well tuned. Few suggestions on cuts: Greenwarden of Murasa is expensive and not really one of my favorites for that effect. I'd prefer to just shuffle everything back in to your library. Hornet Queen I don't understand the inclusion. Rune-Scarred Demon you're already running Sidisi and Demonic Tutor. Viscera Seer I'm not sure I understand why it's here other than to act as a sac outlet. If that's the case, I'll suggest some other cards I think are better. Splinterfright Better in a Tasigur deck, I would think. From Beyond I would cut it. Awakening Zone is better here in that it comes out a turn earlier and you're not running Eldrazi. If you were running Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre I'd feel better about this card. (I'm going to get hate for this...) Damnation is an expensive Wrath of God and, for this deck at least, Living End would be better. Spider Spawning I don't Anticipate you needing that many tokens.

As I said earlier, this deck scarily well tuned already. Most things I would suggest are already here. A few others though which you might want to try out:

Hero's Downfall: You're likely to have trouble with Planeswalkers.

Primal Command: Rune-Scarred Demon is great and all, but you are mostly playing from your graveyard. This is faster.

Strands of Night: Make that swamp a creature and you'll love this card.

Dryad Arbor: It's forest that's a nymph. You want it.

Black Market: Good ramp. Especially for this deck.

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre: Shuffles your graveyard, destroys stuff when you cast it (like Planeswalkers) and is scary.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest: Pair with Greater Good.

It's worth noting that Hermit Druid & Sol Ring are banned in French EDH, so you'll want to cut them off that gets big in your area. Anyway, I hope my insane ideas for cutting are helpful.

Why Murder over Hero's Downfall in the main?

Olivia Voldaren, Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Vampire Nocturnus. Olivia Voldaren might be a bit expensive, but it's worth it. Also some spot removal like Hero's Downfall, Dreadbore, or Terminate would benefit this deck.

Here are my recommended kill spells for a budget Alesha build:

Hero's Downfall
Aura Blast / Hide/Seek (One or both)
Murderous Cut
Swords to Plowshares
Vandalblast / Rack and Ruin / Rakdos Charm (Mardu Charm if there are goblin players near you, otherwise Rack and Ruin or Vandalbalst)

Also since mardu's best strategy is playing cheap cads, and many other combos need lots of mana to work (especially comapred to how little your cards cost) I recommend:

Akki Blizzard-Herder + Goblin Bombardment
Razia's Purification

Nice. I have a cold, so I didn't go to FNM last night.

In a former incarnation of this deck, back when it was Dimir, I ran Dark Petition as a "black, control Chord of Calling" because it could go grab Hero's Downfall, Bile Blight, Infinite Obliteration etc and then cast those cards with the extra mangoes. I don't MD Infinite Obliteration because I don't think it's so great against aggro, but since aggro has gone so far south since rotation, it might be a viable MD option.

You could consider Dark Petition too if you aren't already running it, grab-and-cast Ruinous Path, Foul-Tongue Invocation, etc.
