oh geeze, forgot about mechano spiders and manakin.

Bosh, Iron Golem fits if you wanted to keep with the legendary idea I mentioned for manakin, the idea of destroying another tinkerer's work for gain. Hex Parasite falls into a symilar vein, along with Psychosis Crawler and Myr Welder. perhaps Pentavus for the whole shooting off parts and recoiling them?

Noxious Gearhulk, Solemn Simulacrum, and Rattleblaze Scarecrow fit for mechano-spiders

Yes, the same is true for Master of Cruelties and Raving Dead their attack conditions are avoided while their effects still matter, all good targets for Buried Alive.

I think the overseer is a good card, but would be better had I more artifact creatures to benefit from modular more. As it stands I have only 2, I realize there are other's like Pentavus and Triskelion, but then I think it starts going in a different direction and I'd need to compensate further for that sub theme.

Not sure about Anger as Alesha brings them back tapped and attacking as it is. Even if I grab say Karmic Guide +1, or Siege-Gang Commander for tokens, before you get to the ability you have to declare your attackers because of some priority ruling or some such I believe. So the tokens or anything else that comes in cannot be declared even if they have haste.

Thanks for the suggestion, always appreciated. I'll have a look at yours as well.

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.

Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

ClockworkSwordfish on Weenies Who Smile At Death

If you want some late game punch, the trick with Alesha is to run creatures who are much bigger than their printed stats suggest! For instance, Arcbound Overseer, Clockwork Dragon, Sewer Nemesis and Ignition Team all have 0 power while they're in the graveyard, but much more when they come into play. It can almost feel dirty, but nothing beats the feeling of paying two mana to reanimate your Pentavus.

Other creatures worth considering include Garza's Assassin (you can kill a creature every turn!), Thought Gorger for the potential size and ability to discard other reanimation targets, Ravenous Baboons, Herald of Leshrac, Flayer of the Hatebound, Epochrasite, Clone Shell, Bone Shredder, Nighthowler, Murderous Redcap... plenty of nasty creatures that have good synergy with Alesha.

To protect your commander in combat, it might also be nice to have ways to give her deathtouch. Basilisk Collar is the classic, but note that Archetype of Finality can be brought back by her ability!

ShadowAblaze,okay so i pulled the other one, Emperor's Vanguard in a booster last night. any idea's on that one too? im not sure aboutPentavus either, i like the fact that he's a token producer that can combo with Primal Vigor.

Thanks for your suggestions patrikl. I considered Gate to the Afterlife when it was printed but never tried it; I'll give it a second look. Triskelion and Pentavus were in the original deck list and eventually removed for less expensive creatures. I still try to avoid infinite combos, and Nether Traitor adds very little to the deck on its own.

You know what could be amusingly powerful in this deck? God-Pharaoh's Gift.

Reanimating Pentavus as a hasty 9/9 would be fun.
