Haha I understand the struggle entirely! Personally, I'm only running a handful of non-creature-based removal, and they are less reactionary and more game ending in the form of Living Death, Cyclonic Rift, and In Garruk's Wake. I'm currently only running a single non-creature-based form of spot removal in Go for the Throat, but have found a lot of success in creature-based options like Nekrataal, his new and improved version of Ravenous Chupacabra, Shriekmaw, and Bone Shredder.

I'm preparing a deck with Alesha and your's looks pretty much like what I have in mind.
You probably know already, but creatures that enter the battlefield attacking won't trigger "Whenever this attacks" type abilities, they must be declared attackers for that to happen. So if you bring Ankle Shanker or Tajic, Blade of the Legion with Alesha they won't do their thing that turn.
I'm always trying to find a good deck to use Sunforger, this may be it.
These colors have bad card draw, Ghirapur Orrery would be good on this deck.
You could swap Palisade Giant for Protector of the Crown lower toughness but it gets you card via monarch, the deck is quite aggressive so getting the crown back shouldn't be a problem, or you can just animate him again.
That doesn't work that way. Master of cruelties' ability doesn't have a target, it just affects the defending player, even if that player has hexproof or shroud. If you copy the ability it will still be affecting the defending player, you can't choose any other.
MoC's ability is a triggered ability and you won't be able to duplicate it with the Illusionist's bracers, they only work on activated abilities that are always written in the form "Cost: Effect."
In your deck Illusionist's Bracers would only be useful with Feldon of the Third Path (technically also work with Kytheon and Mirror entity, but copying their ability is redundant). I dont see the Bracers on your deck list so I guess you took them out already.

Thanks PraetorDragoon! 5 CMC is a bit worse, but I think I will change the Nekrataal and the Ravenous Chupacabra for some copies of the Shriekmaw, then. The point of them is just destroying the creatures, anyway.

I'd argue that Gonti, Lord of Luxury fits better for jack - the whole ability to use an enemy's deck against them, along with deathtouch, and a hint of class.
For Crawler, there needs to be some built in regenerate - Slith Bloodletter and Mortivore come to mind, but if you wanted to keep it legendary, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade works too. Masticore fits more for the acid spitting aspect, but not so much for the growth / adaptation.
Burnscar feels like Jaya Ballard, Task Mage
Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni as a non-general version of bonesaw?
just tossing out ideas, seeing if anything sticks. Not finished with worm, only around chap 27 at the time of posting this. glad to see another story-based deck around!

Daring Demolition is basically pay 4, destroy a creature. I don't ever think I've seen a vehicle in a game of EDH.
I'd look to put a removal effect on a Power 2 creature so Alesha can bring it back.
Banewhip Punisher - Recur it from graveyard, then pay 1 black, sac it to kill a creature. Mad value!
Big Game Hunter - Discard from hand, pay 1 black, kill a power 4 or greater creature. Then recur later in the game.
Final-Sting Faerie - More situational
Garza's Assassin - Amazing. Bring back with Alesha, sac it, kill a nonblack.
Nekrataal - same deal as above

Srhike, thanks for the suggestions. I think Curtains' Call may be better in my playgroup though. I already have some conditional removal like Nekrataal and Attrition. I want some instant speed removal with no strings.
Themysteriousone, good suggestion. I don't own a copy but it looks cheap to pick up. I'll consider getting a copy and finding room. I may have enough self-recurring creatures in here but more playtesting will figure that out.
, nice suggestions. Only reason I haven't put in Grim Haruspex in yet is because I've prioritized cards that care about anyone's creatures dying and not just my own (like Harvester of Souls). However Grim Haruspex may still be worth it. I like its cheap casting cost and I do have a fair number of non-token creatures of my own dying.

brandonsperry25 Thanks for commenting! Here's what I think;
Archetype of Courage: great idea with the low powers, I'll figure out a way to slot it in!
Spear of Heliod Puts my creatures in range of a few of my power-related board wipes, not gonna include.
Thanks for commenting! Link me to your deck when you get the chance to post it!
