Consider adding the following -

Waves of Aggression - Combat win-con.

Heartless Hidetsugu - Win-con with Gisela, Blade of Goldknight .

Aurelia's Fury, Master Warcraft - Kill-con with Serra Avatar.

Might replace the minor spot-removal in this deck...

DragonKing90 is correct, and as stated, the Gatherer entry also explains how it should behave.

Rhadamanthus is also correct, in that there is a difference between a characteristic-defining ability and a static ability that creates a replacement effect.

Cards like Tarmogoyf and Serra Avatar have characteristic-defining abilities, so ruling 604.3 applies:

Ruling 604.3 Show

Cards like Sewer Nemesis and Minion of the Wastes have static abilities that create replacement effects, so ruling 208.2b applies:

It depends on exactly how the value of * is determined. For cards like Tarmogoyf and Serra Avatar, the ability is constantly updating * to the appropriate value. For cards like Sewer Nemesis or Minion of the Wastes, where the value of * depends on a choice or some other condition that's undefined while the card is in the graveyard, then * will default to 0 while it's in the graveyard.

if you go to the gatherer, it is explained there. under the rulings for Tarmogoyf and Serra Avatar, the rulings state that their abilities work in all zones, not just the battlefield. so in the case of Tarmogoyf, if there are 3+ card types in all graveyards, it cannot be reanimated by Alesha

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can of course, reanimate creatures in your graveyard with power 2 or less, but can she reanimate cards, like Tarmogoyf, or Serra Avatar that each have * as their power?

Awesome looking deck! You could consider throwing in a Serra Avatar or two in as an alternate finisher. Also, Luminarch Ascension could be a beast in your deck!

One question: did you consider Condemn, Transmutation,Serra Avatar or Vizkopa Guildmage? Or even Task Force, Nomads en-Kor, Diamond Valley and Animal Boneyard? All those cards are worth to be considered for your deck :)
