Can add all these upgrades for about $14. Most of these cards do something when other creatures die which triggers Teysa. Repeatable abilties and effects are very good in Commander.
Nonbudget cards to consider adding:
If you like some these suggestions I offer more help.
Good luck with your deck.

Vman, I've cut the taplands. I agree with your assessment and after a quick test, I found the build worked. Thanks for the suggestion!
CaptDan, I agree with cutting Wayward Swordtooth . What other Dinosaur would you put in? (not Carnage Tyrant though because I can't spend 20 bucks on a card) Also, I've found that I don't really need more than three Remorseful Cleric because I can always just sacrifice a Thrashing Brontodon to destroy Fall of the Thran . I love Sumala Woodshaper because it ramps and gets my enchantments too! What would you cut for it?

Hey! If you want to improve the odds of having your combo online on turn 5 or 6, you need something to make sure you get both combo pieces most of your games. Remorseful Cleric should be a 4 of. Fall of the Thran , I guess you don't want 3 in your starting hand!
You should play something like Sumala Woodshaper to dig into your library.
The rest of your deck should support this combo. I'll remove, for example, the Planeswalker from it.
For the ramp part, I think you should cut some ramp, cut the Wayward Swordtooth , and have other things to ramp too like the biggest dinos.

Thanks for the suggestions, hkhssweiss, I'm a big fan of Oversold Cemetery and Necromancy . I'm thinking, if I did go heavier toward reanimation effects, whether that also sends me toward wanting to run larger creatures to dump into my yard as reanimation targets -- or if the deck would work well enough just using them for recursion and value.
I do know that I don't particularly want to dump the money into the usual targets of Blightsteel / Eldrazi / Praetors. The same budget concerns go for Teferi's Protection . Love that card, though. Razaketh, the Foulblooded is pretty much the main reanimation target right now, since he can then tutor up any of my wincons with 2-3 fodder creatures to sac.
Remorseful Cleric is going in as a strong piece of repeatable gravehate, but the other slots are somewhat flexible. I'll consider your suggestions for sure!

TheNocholas -- I actually just ordered a copy of the new Teysa not long ago. Though I will say I'm not sure of what I would cut to make room for her. Another add that I have coming in is Remorseful Cleric .
I also have a Kaya lying around, and while I like her, I'm not sure I can justify a spot in my list for her.
Do you have an eye on any potential cuts or underperformers in my deck? Orzhov aristocrats is such a well supported archetype that the viable card pool is so wide.

You're welcome. At the moment I'm also trying to work on this button, would you be so kind and check, if my upvote-button in the description section of my Saheeli's Ironworks (KCI) does work?
But I'm not only here for your coding, I've also tested your deck. I think it does work well in a multiplayer-game. You're never the main threat on the board (for your opponents) until you get in the position of dealing high damage. I'd recommend Settle the Wreckage , it works well with your Land Equilibrium , maybe Magus of the Balance or an early Restore Balance . Shimmer would definitely create some hate against you, but could be useful. Standstill is very effective for control decks, because in normal case you'll get some card draw for cheap and also hinder some opponents in their board development. In the Maybeboard put something in against Graveyard-decks like Remorseful Cleric , but this depends on your play group.

Hey nice list! I’ve been considering something along these lines with kaya as the finisher. Have you considered a few multi purpose cards like Remorseful Cleric which acts as a body and graveyard nuke and also Phyrexian Scriptures which is a board wipe and also a graveyard nuke? I feel they might work really well here

Hey, nice budget deck.
There's a few noncreature cards here to consider upgrading with better budget options. All my card suggestions are are less than $3 each.
- Commander's Sphere > Mardu Banner
- Talisman of Indulgence > Rakdos Cluestone
- Animate Dead > Dutiful Return
- Day of Judgment > Fumigate
- Terminate > Walk the Plank
- Chaos Warp > Unlicensed Disintegration
- Boros Charm > Feat of Resistance
A very good budget interaction with Alesha is Karmic Guide + Reveillark . These give you a way to quickly reanimate your aggro army if it's stopped in the mid game. These two creatures together or by themselves can be a reanimation engine for your 2 or less power creatures. Guide can reanimated by Alesha. Buried Alive is excellent at setting up this combo by tutoring for and putting Guide, Lark and another creature such as Anger or Zulaport Cutthroat into your graveyard.
To successfully loop Guide and Lark you'll need a sac outlet such as Viscera Seer or Carrion Feeder , etc. What the sac outlet lets you do is sac Lark thus triggering its leave the battlefield ability letting you reanimate two 2 or less power creatures from your graveyard. Since Guide has 2 power it can be reanimated by Lark, then Guide can reanimate Lark and continue the loop until all your 2 or less power creatures are reanimated.
Adding Cutthroat to this combo can kill all your opponents. Anger as long as its in the graveyard and you control a Mountain gives all your creatures haste. With it reanimate all your creatures before you attack and then attack with all your creatures in one turn. Haste is very good with an aggro strategy as long as you have ways to get Anger into your graveyard.
Here's a few budget lands to consider adding:
- Command Tower : every multi-color deck in Commander should play this land.
- Nomad Outpost
- High Market : sac outlet.
- Caves of Koilos
- Tainted Field : works well with a lot of Swamps.
- Graven Cairns
- Smoldering Marsh : works well with lots of basic lands.
- Foreboding Ruins
Other cards to consider adding:
- Skullclamp : one of the most powerful budget cards to play with Alesha.
- Mentor of the Meek : good draw with 2 or less power creatures.
- Remorseful Cleric : opponent graveyard exile, flying.
- Militia Bugler : can be a repeatable way with Alesha to find and get creatures into your hand.
- Mirror Entity : mana sink to make your 2 power or less creatures much bigger for the turn.
I have other suggestions, but I'll stop here. I offer more help; if you like some of these suggestions I'll help you to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.
