drew my Phyrexian Obliterator in response though and dragged the game out a bit. im not sure if my friend wouldve played the same way as you wouldve but he made the right call letting me sac your stuff to rid obliterator and let Eternal Witness save the day. my deck lost.
Game 3: an early Sagu Mauler was beating me down and i couldnt use my Gatekeeper of Malakir to get it sac'd because of the freaking birds, myLiliana, Heretical Healer Flipwith a lashwrithe traded blows to keep me alive though untill i got to turn it into the planeswalker side and win via revive Sidisi, Undead Vizier to get a second Phyrexian Obliterator (the first one got exiled) Akroma, Angel of Fury WAS on the field to trade with obliterator but i had a lucky Dismember to make her a 1/1 for trample win VERY CLOSE GAME that went quite a bunch of turns.
game 5:Thought-Knot Seer comes out super early and gets flashed back by Restoration Angel asap. my hand gets crippled and i proceed to lose the game with nothing but my cant block for shit Bloodghasts out to watch.
The deck is actually pretty good,with a little luck in the opening hand it rolls really strong. but the thing i noticed is that it does get disrupted quite easily. Akroma, Angel of Fury doesnt seem like the strongest card for its value maybe? sure it hits like a truck and has semi protection but white and blue arent the scariest colors when it comes to killing beaters. it does dodge Dismember tho so thats something.
Wall of Omens im iffy about. sure when flickered you get to draw even more but its only a 0/4 though. is it really worth the slot?
iv been playing with Westvale Abbey Flip in my deck, its not the strongest card nor do you flip it very often (rarely actually) but it does provide an additional win con lategame when you can afford to sac the Birds of Paradise and whatnot.
you removed Stonehorn Dignitary which i can see why, but it does somewhat improve the aggro matchup in my opinion, maybe secret sideboard tech?
anyway, thats all i have man. thanks for sharing your decklist on my post its a great deck and hella fun to play. best of luck

At the very least, I would try to find room for Thousand-Year Elixir as that pseudo-Haste can be very key to ensuring you get value from your commander ASAP. Not to mention untap triggers are pretty great, so Magewright's Stone can also be a pretty powerful inclusion. And the ability to untap your general cranks up the value of cards such as Molten Primordial exponentially.
And let's not forget that Scuttling Doom Engine is just downright hilarious in this kind of deck. I'm also not sure why you would run Expedite over Hammer of Purphoros, as the latter is static and can even give you more fling targets should you start to draw into excess land. And speaking of land, Command Tower>>>>>>>Rupture Spire
As for things to cut, War Elemental, Invincible Hymn, Living Inferno, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Sunblast Angel, and Astral Cornucopia seem to be really slow cards for what they do, while cards like Stonehorn Dignitary, Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, Bull Cerodon, Dragon Hatchling, Reroute, Wing Shards, and Desperate Ritual just look too low impact/situational to keep.
Anyway, those are just my impressions on the deck. It looks really fun and I hope you find my suggestions helpful.

I'll suggest another possible approach to this deck. I've personally made a g/w flicker deck and had some success with a few possible cards you may want to consider.
First and foremost, you want the prime flicker target: Thragtusk. This card does it all. Gives you board presence, gives you a decent body, stabilizes your health. He's nuts.
As for what to possibly remove? I'd consider getting rid of Eldrazi Displacer. You want your creatures to have an immediate impact, and waiting a turn to flicker another creature to get extra value out of it is too slow for modern.
Also, maybe I'm just blind, but how do you plan on casting Akroma, Angel of Fury? Do you need 3/4 of your birds of paradise? Why is it in the deck? It doesn't really synergise with flicker theme. Neither does Sagu Mauler for that matter.

n0bunga: Thanks for the fast response! Here are my thoughts on those:
Archetype of Finality was an attempt to make sure Alesha (and the reanimation target) survives combat. Did you not find it useful enough in that role?
I see your point on Azorius Justiciar.
I have Stonehorn Dignitary in here already, but I thought it might be handy to have Blinding Angel for redundancy (and since it has evasion, it might stick around to keep one player locked down while I use my recursion on something else).
Awwwww, I like Dauthi Mindripper to make Alesha into ": Target opponent discards three cards."
Kor Cartographer was there to grab Shocks, and the Flagstones/Crucible/Stack combo is WAY too much money if I plan to build this IRL.
I also see your point on Noosegraf Mob. Getting ten power for 2 mana is pretty sweet though...
Netherborn Phalanx is too conditional, I guess...
I can't afford Fulminator Mage. For now, Goblin Grenadiers will have to take that slot. There is frequently someone with no creatures in my meta, though, so I think he'll go through a reasonable amount of time.
Oppression is so viciously fun, though. And I don't plan to cast many spells, since much of my deck works by recursion from the GY...

Okay, let's get at 'er. Let's weed out the ones that offer the least amount of misery and perhaps contemplate more hate:
Let's cut the non-staxArchetype of Finality - deathtouch is nice, and I thought of this in my alesha build but ultiamtely it's not going to be something you buried alive or entomb for.
Azorius Justiciar - similar reasons as above.
Dauthi Mindripper - discard is nice, but we can get meaner
Kor Cartographer - ramp is fine, but we've mana rocks for this, and and I'll be perfectly honest I was never in need of it. If you want to go that route, Flagstones of Trokair, Crucible of Worlds and Smokestack can help recur that.
Noosegraf Mob - not feeling this, you've the ability to create 5 zombies as sac fodder, which I totally get, but I feel we can do more, or that your other creatures do more outside of token gen.
Netherborn Phalanx - contingent on others always having a creature. I'd rather you board in Reveillark to complete the Karmic Kombo.
Vampire Hexmage - unless you're planning on going Dark Depths, I'm not too keen on this dude.
Rotting Rats, Delirium Skeins, Oppression - I like the idea of these. Their detriment is your benefit, but Wild Guess helps you in that you choose when you discard, and you draw from that. Nahiri, the Harbinger could also benefit greatly here. She's card advantage and filtering, removal and a useless ultimate we don't care for.
Possibility Storm - Why's this here?

My first suggestion would be to just stop playing with him altogether until he agrees to stop playing that deck.

I took out one Stonehorn Dignitary one Anticipate Saheeli Rai and one Eldrazi Displacer. Isochron Scepter is currently not in my possession so I will stick with 4 Path to Exile. Helps with nasty stuff like Wurmcoil Engine.@AugustEarth Thank you for the +1! I play Venser in my Atraxa Deck but 5cmc for repeatable blink is too much and I don't see how I can pull off the ultimate... His minus is negligible seeing how Akroma, Angel of Fury tramples!
