MindAblaze on Decision Paralysis

I’ve reached an impasse and need your suggestions. Any you make will be valuable.

I’ve been...hoarding cards lately, ordering playset after play set of things to build with, and now that most of them are here I don’t know what exactly to do with them. I’m really in need of suggestions because I can’t make a decision. Below is a list of cards that I have desire to make into something(s?);

Wildfire Eternal

Thought Gorger

Mogg Fanatic

Nahiri's Wrath

Sickening Dreams

Prized Amalgam

Diregraf Captain

Whispering Madness

Psychic Corrosion and,

Flayer of the Hatebound

Obviously I have more cards than this to supplement whatever the plan ends up being and I don’t expect to fit them all together, but if you have any suggestions then shoot. I’d greatly appreciate any ideas. Apparently I’m a netherbeast who has developed the retardations and can’t build a sixty card deck anymore...

I've run Tezzeret's Gambit in similar lists. Have you looked at splashing red or blue instead of white?

Red gets you Vexing Devil and Devastating Summons alongside haste enablers. Blue gets you Cloudfin Raptor and Pongify alongside the usual blue stuff.

With a fetch base you can even start looking at even wilder cards- Bloodhall Ooze and Slitherhead, Thought Gorger and more. Just depends on where you want to look for synergies- +1 counters have been printed on a lot of good cards over the years.

Thought Gorger could be a good top end threat, since Lord of Extinction would put it way over budget.

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!

Thought Gorger, Avalanche Riders, Solemn Simulacrum, Mindclaw Shaman (maybe you had him I don't remember), Angel of Invention, Ravos, Soultender, Archetype of Finality all seem like must haves.

I'm 70% built. Have finished the deck but have most of it sleeved already.

ClockworkSwordfish on Alesha and Angry Little Dudes

A good trick for getting more punch out of Alesha is to run guys who have more power than their printed stats might indicate. For instance, Arcbound Overseer has 0 power when he's in the graveyard, but as soon as you return him, he's attacking for 6! Other examples include Clockwork Dragon, Drakestown Forgotten, Nighthowler, Sewer Nemesis, Thought Gorger, Ignition Team, Crovax the Cursed and Workhorse. Your opponents will be surprised how often "2 or less" won't feel like it!

Other cards that fit your general strategy include Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and Unearth, which can return a lot of the same cards as Alesha. You might also want more removal, such as Bone Shredder, Ravenous Baboons and Garza's Assassin. Good luck!
