Hi, KaraZorEl, thank you for the comment, feedback is always appreciated. However, it seems you have completely misunderstood the intention of this deck. This isn't an abzan midrange deck, this deck is about suddenly winning the game out of nowhere.
Hexdrinker just straight up wins the game if left unchecked.
I will give you that Murderous Rider is the weakest link mainboard right now, but there's no other creature with converted mana cost 3 or less than can just straight up kill a creature or plainswalker like that.
Castle Locthwain is actually turning out amazing. I need all the card advantage I can get, and the Horizon lands are great, but they die when used. I don't care about the loss of life or I wouldn't be playing Modern with shock and fetch lands.
I already have Abrupt Decay, and that can kill everything with converted mana cost 3 or less. Despark gets rid of anything that costs 4 or more, thus covering every mana cost that exists in magic. No need for anything else.
Wheel of Sun and Moon gets played a ton! It is perfect grave hate tech against the usual suspects like Dredge, Phoenix, Jund, and Yawgmoth, but also works wonders against Urza because it doesn't hate just on creatures. It stops the Thopter Sword combo in its tracks.
And lastly, never, ever Gaddock Teeg. The two biggest parts of the deck are Collected Company (a spell with converted mana cost 4 or more) and Chord of Calling (a spell with converted mana cost X in the casting cost). Why would I want to handicap myself like that?

This is FearDReaper from MTG Salvation. You asked me for my thoughts:
Dack's Duplicate never really preformed all that well for me. Imo clone effects are overrated. Phantasmal Image and Phyrexian Metamorph are also kinda meh in my experience. These guys were so much better before they changed the legend rule.
I haven't played my list in a while but if I reforged it I would definitely be trying Greven, Predator Captain. He seems to fit the deck like a glove and brings some phenominal card draw to the table.
Are you comboing with Murderous Redcap? If not I don't think he's a great include. In its place I would run Ravenous Chupacabra. If you are comboing with redcap, id still try to find a place for Chuppy. He's just sooo good
A few more cards I would add are: Herald of Secret Streams, Captivating Crew, Syr Konrad, the Grim, and Olivia, Mobilized for War (I see you have her in your maybe board but in my experience she is really good)
Lastly, idk how casual/competitive your playgroup is but if you wanna be really mean you can play Jokulhaups. I wouldn't recommend it if your group is more casual though as they will absolutely hate you lol.
Feel free to pick my brain more. Preferably on this site

I think this is an awesome deck! I do have a couple of suggestions though. the sacrifice outlets (Blasting Station, Altar of Dementia, AKA your wincons) are too few in the deck. Also, i would suggest maybe splashing a little black for maybe a Murderous Redcap for a win with any sac outlet at all. Flesh-Eater Imp is a good sac outlet and a wincon provided that you get the rest of the combo pieces. Also, between Noble Hierarch and Birds of Paradise you could probably throw in at least 2 Fabricate to get your sac outlets. Another card that's fun with this kind of deck is Chronozoa. Similar to Fabricate it wouldn't be impossible to just slide one or 2 into the deck, but chances are you wont need them. I was going to recommend Dark Depths but haha BANNED that was awhile ago i don't know why i didn't remember. My only suggestions are more sac outlets or some more ways to find them like Fabricate. Great and original idea, +1 from me!

I like it. I also have a Prossh deck feel free to check it out! One card i would like to suggest adding to your list is Murderous Redcap as it goes infinite with Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Rhythm of the Wild +1 from me :)

Yeah I've loved the idea of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker ever since Splinter Twin , and obviously since it came out in champions itself. I've just been too obsessed with this deck since Collected Company came out. I've been so loyal I still have both Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Anafenza, the Foremost ! Lol. In regards to Cabal Therapist , it was a tough choice. Cabal Therapy is one of my favorite cards / combo catalysts in legacy. So to see it printed on a stick in modern was a dream come true. But now the deck is so tight knit and everything in it is basically a game winning piece, the only ones that have stuck around that arent winners are the Ranger-Captain of Eos and the Murderous Rider . The captain can search for Walking Ballista for Heliod, Sun-Crowned or Devoted Druid , and can save a few creatures on my side by sacking it during my opponents upkeep. Murderous Rider sticks around as my only form of true interaction besides Walking Ballista and Murderous Redcap . It was a tough choice, but the weakest link.

Hey, Ursaromg, thanks for checking in :D. Hell yes I'm still playing this deck! I've experimented with a few different modern archetypes to see if there's anything else I like out there. I've come up with a few I actually like to play as decks for fun, but this deck is just way too good to ever not be my main. It's basically always in a good position. There is a lot more creature decks in the meta, so having good creature defense and offense is always important. I'm always putting lots of creatures out there that can act as blockers in a pinch, but can also attack if my opponent doesn't have creatures like they should. I basically get to play a bunch of the best creatures in their colors and mana slots until I suddenly win the game. Glittering Wish has all of a sudden gotten better because now it can protect against Surgical Extraction , which has become all too popular. Most of all, I love playing decks that go infinite. This one can do it in so many ways. I keep a Melira, Sylvok Outcast in the main for infect game one, but it can all of a sudden win me the game if I get either Viscera Seer or Carrion Feeder out with either Kitchen Finks or Murderous Redcap . Obviously Vizier of Remedies is better because it can not only enable the persist combo, but give me infinite green mana with Devoted Druid . With infinite green mana, I can win with Rhonas the Indomitable or Shalai, Voice of Plenty when that happens, and both of those creatures work remarkably well on their own without the mana as well. Of course, I can also win with wishing for Impromptu Raid or with Walking Ballista as well. Which brings me to Heliod, Sun-Crowned . Not only does it combo well with the life I gain through my creatures and combos by itself, but with Walking Ballista , it is a two card win combo. Giving Walking Ballista lifelink with Heliod, Sun-Crowned 's passive means that the second Walking Ballista is big enough to survive losing a counter, I win with infinite damage again. The deck is way too addicting, nothing but win cons. Oh, and Hexdrinker is a win con by itself :D

Hey, nice version of Alesha. I too switched to Alesha from Teysa :)
I play Alesha with infinite combos, here's some observations I have made while playing. You might be aware, but it's not mentioned in the deck description that Karmic Guide + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + sac outlet is another infinite combo. It's infinite hasty Guides as well as infinite die triggers of Kiki.
For the Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit + Murderous Redcap + sac outlet combo you can replace the sac outlet with an aristocrat. Redcap can do damage to itself which kills itself triggering persist. When Redcap ETB you can stack the triggers so Anafenza gives it a +1/+1 counter before it targets itself with damage resulting in infinite die triggers of Redcap.
I'm not a fan of Judith, the Scourge Diva when playing Kiki combos. Kiki makes a token of the creature it copies and Judith doesn't trigger when a token creature dies. The other aristocrats do trigger when a token creature dies. Kiki is a huge reason to want to play combos with Alesha as General therefore any cards that have dysergy with Kiki I would avoid.
With Corpse Knight you can infinite combo with Kiki and win without having to attack. This is helpful since if you want to combo with Kiki and attack with the infinite copies of the creature then you can't use Alesha's reanimation that turn to enable the combo because Alesha has to attack to reanimate. Knight also works with all the other creature infinite combos since those combos too are having at least one creature repeatedly ETB. Knight opens up other avenues to winning with Kiki combos without attacking at instant speed with Necromancy or Apprentice Necromancer reanimation. I don't play Necromancy because of budget, but that's not a problem with your deck.
Altar of Dementia just like Goblin Bombardment as a sac outlet is a win condition with combos without needing an aristocrat. This is helpful because it speeds up the assembly of a combo since now you don't need a sac outlet and an aristocrat instead you just need Dementia to win.
- Kiki + Guide + Dementia
- Kiki + Guardian + Dementia
- Lark + Guide + Dementia
- Warder + Animate + Dementia
Blasting Station is another sac outlet that can be used to win without needing an aristocrat. I don't play it because of budget, but that's not a problem with your deck. Razaketh, the Foulblooded is a busted card in Commander as a sac outlet combo enabler and in my opinion it's very good with Alesha as General because she can repeatedly reanimate fodder to sac to tutor. Guide is great with Alesha and with Razaketh because it can reanimate and be repeatable fodder to sac.
Good luck with your deck.
