This is a super cool deck. Lot of fun. One thing that im not sure how you feel about, but Phenax, God of Deception is very fitting along with cards like Nighthowler, Mortivore, Sewer Nemesis, etc. I've had great luck with it (especially if i have a token or two from Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. Phenax makes it way easier and more consistent to trigger Sidisi).
What's interesting is with this layout you have here, Sidisi doesn't make or break the deck. A lot of options here for win conditions. Great stuff.
My favorite so far is to Traumatize myself, sack two lands for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Flashback Dread Return for Mortivore or Nighthowler (sometimes both or Body Double) and mill them with Phenax, God of Deception tap trigger or kill them with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord mana ability.

slaftergames, that is a very good point and I feel silly for missing that. I'm going to set this to casual for the time being until I can find a good modern-legal replacement.

Baleful Strix is not legal in modern, so you will not be able to play that unfortunately.
looks like you have 80 cards in the deck, so I would take out Mortivore, Nemesis of Reason, Tidehollow Strix, Typhoid Rats and 8 lands. that should make the deck more consistent. also, i'd play Muddle the Mixture, Spell Pierce, or Mana Leak over Dash Hopes, because 5 life for something a Tarmogoyf, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Gurmag Angler, Snapcaster Mage, etc. is next to nothing when your main win con is mill.

Cards like Lord of Extinction are an interesting idea, though I am hesitent due to my graveyard hate package. He/she is also a bit out of my price range for this deck (any card over $5 I already own), but I do have the more budget friendly Mortivore and Lhurgoyf.

Haven't looked much into building around Alesha myself. but this looks like a fun build. I think I would try to incorporate more of the x/x power/toughness creatures to explode out of your graveyard like revenant: Geist-Honored Monk, Keldon Warlord, Lost Order of Jarkeld, Malignus, Minion of the Wastes, Mortivore, Serra Avatar, etc.
As a lover of black and reamination, personally I would probably take this in a zombie direction, but that would just be my take.

Rooftop Storm Do it!
Crow of Dark Tidings, Mindwrack Demon, Stinkweed Imp, can help you throw other shit into your graveyard. Sidisi, Undead Vizier tutor that is a zombie. Crypt of Agadeem, Living Death. Corpse Harvester. Forgotten Creation. Mortivore. Havengul Runebinder. Nephalia Drownyard. Haunted Fengraf.

Aside from the Phyrexian Dreadnought already mentioned, you wouldn't go wrong adding a number of the under-costed black creatures (demons mostly) that come with a significant downside to offset the difference.
For example, Abyssal Persecutor is a 6/6 flying trampler until you want to kill someone, then it becomes a horde of zombies with Gisa. Or, cast Demonlord of Ashmouth, immediately sac it to Gisa, then use one of the zonbies to pay its cost when it enters the battlefield again due to undying.
