You have exactly one white card in this deck. There's legit no reason to strain your mana base to go esper. If you want mill, go with Sygg, River Cutthroat. He's easy to cast and provides you with advantage. As it stands, your deck is far too slow. You've got to keep in mind that Tiny Leaders is essentially Delver - The Format. Most decks, even the control ones, have efficient ways to put out the beats. They'll run you over fast.

+1 :) I saw a deck abusing Waste Not in combination with Burning Inquiry and Pyromancer Ascension. A couple of Thought Scour could be good too if you want to keep it Grixis while filling up your graveyard to get an active Ascension faster :)

@Countertop: T1 Fetch, eot get a tapped blue shockland, T2, play a black land, Thought Scour yourself. Also, there's been a lot of situations where I've had 15+ cards in my yard. It actually clears up cards for Tasigoyf's activated ability.

What's the Serum Visions for?
Just curious, 4 Cryptics no Esper Charm ?
I would say 4x Think Twice
0 Serum Visions - card has little to no value in Esper Control.
If it's just delve fodder, it's counterproductive. And Thought Scour is better. But canyrips aren't really what you want here.

Surgical Extraction is nearly useless when you don't have any ways to force discard / mill your opponent out. Run some targeted discard spells like Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek, splash blue for Thought Scour or just take out Surgical Extraction to make room for something else. (And speaking of discard, Blightning begs to be played in a deck like yours)
Some way to give Alesha hate is important - the opponent won't simply leave her be until she can attack next turn. Heck, if you want to go all in with this strategy, play Mass Hysteria. It's crazy, it's suicidal against aggro, but it works.
Simian Spirit Guide and Heartless Summoning could help you get Alesha on the board on turn 2 rather than 3. The Guides are a must have for any red combo deck, and HS doesn't kill any of your creatures (and their power is kinda irrelevant, so who cares about the -1/-1 effect?).

I like the deck, by the way. Just asking how it has been performing for you before suggesting anything.

What would you recommend taking out for the extra 2 Thought Scour?

U/R storm is a vary popular deck, which is why a fair number of competitive decks run Leyline of Sanctity, which destroys storm. Your deck (like most storm decks) is of course very good, its just you lack an answer to your main problem. You have Blood Moon in the sideboard, but it won't be enough. I also kinda agree with you in that Lightning Bolt should be in the mainboard - for 1 mana it deals 3 damage (how much more could you ask for), but on the other end I think having 4 Thought Scour in storm can be very powerful, as it provides fuel for Pyromancer Ascension, for so long as you target yourself. All in all, a great deck, but it could use some improvement.
