LadyZ, thanks for comments.
Maybeboard for this deck is some randome stuff near vampire theme from my card pool. So, I indicated that it is possible to advise cards not only from there. And I don't consider Duskmantle Prowler or Famished Paladin too.
Think I don't need Anguished Unmaking right now. In our playgroup I don't see deck with graveyard interaction. So don't need change simple "destroy" on "exile".

If you're going lifegain, I'd look at Dawn of Hope for some card draw. Champion of Dusk is another way to help there. Anowon, the Ruin Sage is pretty nice for vampire tribal. Anguished Unmaking is almost strictly better than Mortify . And if it's not out of your price range, Luxury Suite comes in handy if you play multiplayer. If you're just doing 1v1 though, it's not that great. Best of luck!

Times are changing!
With Modern Horizons, now seems like the time to make a few key changes to hopefully not only improve the consistency of the deck but also add in a few new fun tools.
Old and busted:
Squandered Resources : I can see why this is appealing in the mass land destruction or fast mana decks, but honestly it didn't play out great in this build because the finishers aren't exactly that fast, or a few extra mana is unlikely to change the outcome (one or two Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is usually enough, and not only that, far more consistent with searching effects).
Luxury Suite : The mana base is slowly taking the desired shape, as before it was very much mirrored on all three colours with very few red or black cards. I've found consistently that a R/B untapped source is underwhelming and does very little to help ramp out early game and there is an oversaturation of fixing already present.
Rakdos Carnarium : Same issue as above, I used to feel that the third bounceland for the bounce effect was enough, but looking at the results I feel like this is an easy cut, the R/B fixing is good enough in this deck to not need to warrant another.
Drownyard Temple : while it may seem an easy addition, the effect has been lacklustre, at best a sac outlet for The Gitrog Monster or Glacial Chasm at best, but that doesn't feel like a consistent or effective gameplan.
Nurturing Peatland : G/B mana fixing, draw a card, easy include.
Mina and Denn, Wildborn : Am testing this out mainly because unlike Wayward Swordtooth it has a secondary ability that may be of use for interactions like protecting Glacial Chasm from removal, while also allowing a second landfall trigger if needed or simply as a way to pitch a land to Lord Windgrace ticking up.
Wrenn and Six : I'm big on this planeswalker in this particular build because Exsanguinate , Torment of Hailfire , Splendid reclaimation, Hour of Promise , Windgrace's Judgement and Scapeshift are all prime targets for recursion with retrace. The tick up is relevant, and the tick down...well like Lord Windgrace 's ultimate we'll just forget about that one and move on.
I have a good feeling about all these changes, let me know if there are any changes you would also suggest ( Tectonic Reformation was on the cards, but can't see another good target to cut and am unsure whether it is just another situational enchantment).
The land base has gone down for 42 to 41, but this should not massively effect the consistency of land drops.

New day, new thoughts!
After mulling over War of the Spark for some time I think that some minor improvements can be made to the deck with at least one of the new utility lands and perhaps a new creature. For your consideration:
Blast Zone : Difficult to interact with, potential mana sink, fantastic target for recursion, good political card. Main point against is that if you use this to replace a coloured source of mana this does increase the likelihood of those disappointing off colour starts. Originally I was considering Sheltered Thicket as a potential cut but also Rakdos Carnarium has become increasingly apparent as just another bounce effect rather than having a mana-fixing angle. Another potential cut is Drownyard Temple as while in theory it may seem like a no-brainer inclusion based upon the card text alone, I can barely count on one hand the number of times this has actually been an effective play apart from possibly ramping a single land.
Evolution Sage : I was skeptical and remain so that this has much of a place in the deck as the only effective target would be proliferating on Lord Windgrace which I don't think is a solid enough reason to justify any cuts to make this inclusion.
Squandered Resources : I don't think you can really justify this in the full 100 anymore as often it has ended up as a pitch to windgrace or desperation sac outlet instead of trying to find an actual win condition. In terms of enabling big mana, it seems far more reliable to go on the search for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers because at least you can copy Cabal Coffers with Thespian's Stage and Vesuva whereas Squandered Resources is a one-and-done type investment unless you have the Splendid reclaimation in hand. I think this may be the cut to try out Mina and Denn, Wildborn .
Rakdos Carnarium , Sheltered Thicket and Luxury Suite : I think the deck has been leaning a little too heavily on rounding out the mana base when it has been progressively moving away from red. I believe that one of these is a prime cut prospectively for Nuturing Peatland when Modern Horizons drops and also for Blast Zone .

Hey, your deck is great, but where's Command Tower ? Nice primer lots of work went into, it's well organized and written :)
Upgrades to consider:
- Command Tower > 1x Swamp
- City of Brass > 1x Plains
- Luxury Suite > 1x Swamp
- Enlightened Tutor > Ravos, Soultender
- Selfless Spirit > Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord
- Yahenni, Undying Partisan > Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice
- Palace Jailer > Twilight Prophet
- Cruel Celebrant > Phyrexian Arena
Enlightened Tutor has many powerful cards that it can tutor for especially a sac outlet, Skullclamp or Reconnaissance . Cruel Celebrant is another aristocrat. Selfless Spirit is a nice support creature with Alesha and Lark. Palace Jailer can be reanimated by Alesha, gives you the monarch (your end step draw) and can exile an opponent's creature; that's a lot of interaction for a four drop. Yahenni, Undying Partisan is a fantastic sac outlet in Commander because board wipes are going to happen with multiple opponents. He's also a another creature sac outlet which is important with Alesha. Only currently having Seer as the only creature sac outlet is risky.
I don't think Ravos, Soultender is worth playing he's another five drop and his recursion is worse compared to Lark and Guide's reanimation who are also five drops. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is lackluster compared to all the other reanimation here because many creatures you want to reanimate have high CMCs which doesn't play well with his -X ability. Out of all the four drops Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice doesn't do much. It's nice that she can be reanimated by Alesha, but why would you choose to reanimate her out of all the other creatures? I don't think she's worth playing for that reason. Twilight Prophet has a powerful ability, but only if you have the city's blessing which without a token strategy is slow. I'm not a fan of Phyrexian Arena in Commander it's too slow. I think you're much better off getting draw from creatures with Alesha especially with Skullclamp . Good luck with your deck.
