Ravenous Chupacabra Discussion

There are some real sub optimal choices here.
While I love the classic Royal Assassin and Bounty Agent is cool, they both don't work well with Alesha as she reanimates her creatures tapped and attacking. That means these creatures have to not only survive combat but also a trip around the table before they ever get to do anything after reanimation.
They're basically strictly worse than stuff like Ravenous Chupacabra, which you also have in the deck. I'd hunt down some more Enters the Battlefield style effects like the Chupacabra instead of ones that require tapping to activate.
Hanweir Garrison is another really cool card, with Hanweir Battlements but it's important to note it doesn't trigger on reanimation because it enters the battlefield already attacking. Keep it if you just want to trigger the Meld effect, but Something like Siege-Gang Commander is just better if you want to make tokens.
I don't think Tunnel Ignus is worth playing at all unless you have a friend who only plays Lord Windgrace or Tatyova all the time or something.
Burnished Hart is a fantastic addition to this deck. Often I find it better than Solemn Simulacrum as an early game value engine, because it has the ability to sac itself.
I tried to keep all my suggestions reasonably budget friendly. You've got a real diverse and interesting Alesha tool kit, and I think you can stream line it with minimal expenditure. Have fun playing Alesha! She's my favorite commander.

Crossbow Ambush for Geralt's crossbow.
Giant Warthog is a... well a boar.
Ravenous Chupacabra reminds me a lot of the rabid, mangey dogs you find across Velen.
Screeching Harpy is pretty self-explanatory. There are lots of others, but the art on this one is pretty on-point with the Witcher.
Chorts and Fiends kind of look like Baloths and those kinds of beasts in Magic. Nessian Demolok is particularly close, but there's also Baloth Woodcrasher, Blastoderm and Garruk's Companion, among many others.
Werewolves... Take your pick. However very few werewolves in Magic depict them quite like they are in Witcher. They're so gross, painful and deformed in that game, so maybe you can choose some based on that.

looks like a pretty sweet deck! Is there a format you are more used to? What kind of meta are you playing in?
Personally would try to limit the amount of instant and sorcery cards you have since Muldrotha, the Gravetide can't too much about them. I also am a pretty strong believer in having close to 36 lands

Greater Good (might help to have a sac outlet to be able to reuse etb triggers from your creatures or to get some final use in the event of a board wipe, plus I think it's got great synergy with graveyard play

Just some quick off the top of the head Mire Triton Gorging Vulture Buried Alive Final Parting Bond of Discipline Apprentice Necromancer Syr Konrad, the Grim are all super budget friendly cards that are functional in reanimation decks. I like to mill as fast as possible with 2 drops and use stuff like Reanimate and Animate Dead to get out big pay off cards like Sheoldred, the Whispering One or Vilis, Broker of Blood to the field earlier than later but they arent all budget. I also like Meteor Golem or Ravenous Chupacabra in mill decks because once they are in your bin you can grab them any number of ways, and even though their stats arent great you can always feed them to your Blood for Bones to either destroy something else (they go to the bin before the ability resolves so you can return the creature you sacrifice) or you can put it back in your hand to hard cast later. I really like graveyard decks theyre fun even when you lose.

Sire of Stagnation fits the landfall theme. He's straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.
Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will further help you abuse ETB effects each turn. Bounce Ravenous Chupacabra each turn to keep the battlefield clear, draw 2 extra cards per turn with Baleful Strix, put 2 more lands in play with Wood Elves, or continuously wipe the opposing board with Massacre Wurm.
I'm seeing a lack of tutors with this deck. I imagine some are too expensive like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor, which are amazing. Others in the form of Rune-Scarred Demon, Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower really help the deck find pieces and continue to accelerate their board state without sacrificing anything. Btw, Bellower can find Empath.
Bojuka Bog provides graveyard interaction without affecting consistency. Swap it out for a swamp.

Bojuka Bog will provide extra graveyard interaction without affecting consistency.
Tatyova, Benthic Druid is a great 2 way threat... lifegain and card draw.
Sire of Stagnation is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.
Fierce Empath is a great tutor effect for this deck, especially late game. Add Woodland Bellower and you can net 6 cards off 1 creature cast. Use the 2nd trigger for Wood Elves. 2 lands + 2 creatures on top of the extra 2.

I kinda like Temur Sabertooth instead of Bramble Sovereign just to save its self and other creature you could also switch Strionic Resonator with Birthing Pod. I didn't think about it but it's a good include. Ravenous Chupacabra I like more then Shriekmaw cause it costs less for the body and hits any target but you can switch it out for preference. Bojuka Bog is good too
