Creature — Goblin Assassin
When Murderous Redcap enters the battlefield, it deals damage equal to its power to target creature, player or planeswalker.
Persist (When this creature is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)
Murderous Redcap Discussion

Maybe add Murderous Redcap shenanigans? Works best with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed which isn't the cheapest suggestion but Metallic Mimic works if you name either goblin or assassin. Flayer of the Hatebound may be in the realm of what you're looking for as well.
You already have some good sac outlets but you may want to add Viscera Seer .

The power that your talking about and the fact that it would compound on itself is the difference
These are the best comparisons I could find.
Murderous Redcap is a 2/2 for 4, who could be abused, but would need infinite ETB to even be worth it, plus it only triggers off of himself.
Gibbering Fiend is a 2/1 for 2, that only deals 1 damage when it ETB, but to each opponent. Again, would need to be infinite to be relevant, and otherwise isn't good, and only tiggers off of himself
Forge Devil very simply 1/1 for 1, with a 1 dmg ETB, BUT it's 1 dmg to you as well.
Flayer of the Hatebound is a very similar effect, but it's only on very restricted Graveyard ETB effects.
Now Impact Tremors is a great card, but only because it is triggering off of all of our creatures entering the battlefield or potentially going infinite.
To my knowledge there isn't anything quite like what we are talking about, and it's simply because it becomes that much easier to abuse. Most of the commonly abused ones are giving infinite mana, infinite draw, or infinite tokens, which don't win right away. This is direct, compounding damage. Yes there are other things that can be abused,but this would be a unique level of jank.

Porphyriclycan: Indeed there is. Most importantly, I've switched back to Murderous Redcap as the commander because Garna wants you to play her with a more patient, midrange/control strategy, while the deck i built wants to be aggressive and fast. Being able to use the commander as removal/extra damage that leaves a body on the field is more in line with what the deck wants to do.

Taxes is always an enjoyable archetype. For one person at the table, at least.
You have the Reveillark + Karmic Guide loop implemented into the deck, along with Murderous Redcap as a finisher, but Gonti, Lord of Luxury can fulfill the same role of ending the game whilst having more utility on the early turns.
For a deck with thirty-five lands, Temple of the False God seems slightly hopeful and inconsistent. You mentioned difficulty with coloured mana in the deck description, so Grand Coliseum could be fine.
False Prophet has always been one of the single strongest cards in my Alesha deck, so I would include it.
At last, Sire Of Insanity can lock down the entire game in your favor. It leaves your opponents out of solid answers for your board and leaves the way to triumph.
That is all, my liege.
For my own decklists on the archetype, here you are if you wish to peruse: Alesha, Grave Engine Within the Confines of Law
Fare thee well and rejoice in crushing them all.

I like the idea, i build some decks similar to this, but with the difference that the comandant is Shattergang Brothers , that is less recommended but i like it more. Some suggestions are:

Thank you. I have Grumgully, the Generous and Catacomb Sifter in a binder. Definitely putting those in. I'm going to go pick up Nim Deathmantle and Murderous Redcap tonight. I'm also thinking about Furnace Celebration , maybe Triskelion .

Going infinite in Jund is easy and fun. Any of the persist creatures (e.g. Murderous Redcap ) go infinite with Bad Mike or Grumgully, the Generous . All you need is a free sac outlet like Ashnod's Altar .
You can take a look at my Sek'kuar deck here for some inspiration.

Massacar Thankyou for the suggestion. You are right that they could exile the Murderous Redcap , but Comet Storm does not go infinite with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Viscera Seer . If it were just the one combo, then sure, I would add Comet Storm , but having a card that goes infinite in more than 1 way is more important then playing around a specific form of interaction.
