Curious about some of the cards you run and your thought process for them and if they work well.
Hope seemed like a decent card, but unless you got a way to possibly deal damage to multiple people, picking on one person seemed...rough. Spirit was a card I did consider. While we (Alesha players), cant recur it, having it tutorable is something nice. Have you ever run into issues where you yourself screw yourself over, unable to draw additional cards?
Pox seems like an interesting card. Sort of a board and hand 'reset', giving you a chance to discard cards, start picking people down to lower life totals ect. Another "doesn't it hurt you" effect is Blood Moon type effects. I considered them (ugh the expensiveness of them though -_-), but havent decided to pull the trigger.
As for upgrades, I personally like Rule of Law over Ethersworn Canonist. Reason being is because if you play against an artifact deck, it just REALLY sucks to have to try and deal with it while you personally cant do much. It also combos with Possibility Storm, another way to really screw with Blue players (trying to cast a counterspell and instead gets a Brainstorm or an inoperable High Tide when they dont want it) and as stated, with Rule of Law effects, players cant cast spells from their hands, meaning only graveyard recursion (like Alesha) or stuff being cast from the grave will work.
One thing I personally am having trouble with in my build is keeping cards in my hand. I usually end up not having cards and unable to really do much. My other issue was I was playing alot of cards that targeted me, like Hokori, Dust Drinker. Would love to get some additional input from another Alesha player. My build is based off of a Death and Taxes Primer so I'd like to get another set of eyes on it :3

First I would like to welcome you on T/O!
Perhaps you have seen it already; this place is a great community where great decks and ideas come to life. If you ever need help with any deck, then there are usually several people willing to help you. Just ask :)
While I am here, let me give you a few suggestions for your deck:
- Tamiyo, Field Researcher : Does it still fall within your budget?
- Rhystic Study : A great draw engine
- Willbreaker : Perhaps not into your theme, but so powerful!
- Hokori, Dust Drinker
- Ghostly Prison : Seems missing here
- Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer
- Windborn Muse : Pillowfort creature
If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)
Have fun on T/O!

Luminarch Ascension seems out of place.

An old deck that I used to run against my friend's control decks was an Uril, the Miststalker deck that ran some hate bear type cards and a land destruction sub-theme. The general plan was to ramp early; use cards like Grand Abolisher, Vexing Shusher, Spellbreaker Behemoth, and Cavern of Souls to get Uril past counterspells; slap down an aura or two so that Uril could win in a few swings; and then blow up all my opponents lands so that they couldn't cast spells like AEtherize or Cyclonic Rift. 1v1 the deck worked well but fell short in group games.
Another commander that may work out well is a Derevi, Empyrial Tactician voltron deck. Derevi's ability means you can but her into play at instant speed, dodging counterspells, and potentially tapping down mana for counterspells at the end of the opponent's turn. If she gets killed, you never have to worry about having to pay commander tax to put her back into play. Hero's Blade works great with Derevi, giving you an instant speed 5/5. Grafted Wargear is also useful because is equips for free and you can move it to another creature if you need to sac Derevi to get her out from under a Pacifism type effect. Any expensive equipment you may already have like Sword of Feast and Famine or Umezawa's Jitte are also great. Since you are running white, you once again have access to hate bear cards and Stax effects to back up your aggro plan. Competitive Derevi decks aim to lock down opponents' mana with cards like Winter Orb, Stasis, and Hokori, Dust Drinker while untapping their own mana with Derevi's untap ability and a bunch of creatures.

Boonweaver combo is not that reliable. I have no means of searching for him other than Pattern of Rebirth (which can be searched by Academy Rector, Enlightened Tutor, and Idyllic Tutor) or Eladamri's Call. MOREOVER, I have no means of searching for a sac outlet other than Enlightened Tutor.
Land destruction can be searched up in a few ways. The creatures Linvala, Keeper of Silence and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite can be tutored by Sisay, Eladamri's Call or Pattern of Rebirth. Living Plane can only be tutored by Academy Rector, Enlightened Tutor, and Idyllic Tutor. I love this combo and will keep it because it was the main reason I made the deck (as you can tell, I love land destruction). This combo has caught off many by surprise and it is always nice to watch somebody scoop from frustration.
Karmic Guide/Reveillark are both great cards on their own. I included sac outlets for both boonweaver and the guide/lark buddies. I want to remove the 3 artifact sac outlets because my only means of searching for them are Enlightened Tutor. Moreover, taking into account how prevalent artifacts are in EDH, I figure by removing them, I can make more room for other cards such as Kataki, War's Wage. I suppose there is a reason Boonweaver is used in Karador and not Sisay as black offers creature (and other) sac outlets.
Survival --> Loyal retainers --> IonaI LOVE THIS SO MUCH! I don't care about removing someone from the game. They should have colorless removal such as Duplicant or many other cards. I MIGHT want to remove Iona, Shield of Emeria and/or Avacyn, Angel of Hope to lower the average converted mana cost. HOWEVER, I am more inclined towards removing Dragonlord Dromoka and Sigarda, Host of Herons as they seem meta dependent.
Regarding Mana Dorks....
Hokori, Dust Drinker (goes well with cradle and can slow my opponents), Kataki, War's Wage, Sylvan Caryatid and Voyaging Satyr and I need 3 more cards. You mentioned Selvala 2.0? Are you referring to Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and if so why? You also mentioned Thalia, but which one are you referring to, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (which seems very underwhelming late game and still minimal early-mid game or Thalia, Heretic Cathar which is more relevant throughout most parts of the game?
I apologize for the long response. What are your thoughts on this?

I like the idea but I feel like there is something missing. I'd honestly like to run a Crib Swap or something just to have some hard removal, or splash black and run Esper Charm. Think Twice could also provide some instant speed draw. As for spirits, with the stall and instant speed, Celestial Kirin is a legitimate option, as is Hokori, Dust Drinker with the aether vial or Windborn Muse. Kira, Great Glass-Spinner could provide some neat protection. all told, good luck and hope it all works, its a little tricky to judge without the sideboard.
