I'm also fond of interactions between opponent's cards with my own. Nothing quite satisfies like casting a Dissension in the Ranks on a pair of deathtouchers. Or a situation like, I'm swinging with a 3/3 first strike and a 2/2, they get blocked by say, a 4/4 and a 3/3 respectively, Dissension kills off the 3/3 and leaves the 4/4 low enough for first strike to finish it. I just love cards like that in general.

Hey guys do you think that replacing 1 Victim of Night with Nameless Inversion and the 2 Unearth with 2 more Ghoulcaller's Chant would be good? Doing so I'd be able to take back the inversion from the graveyard to play it again, being it also a zombie card

I have been brewing different takes on reanimator (most private) and playing against myself using another deck on this site, most decks didn't make the cut due to being incosistent. In my opinion the main problem of reanimator is the prevalence of blue in the format and bounce spells like Vapor Snag. If at least your crusher died you could exhume it back, having it in your han on turn 3 is bad, really bad. That is why the for latest iteration of this archetype I moved over to golgari Tortured Existence using Songs of the Damned and drege/Pit Keeper to relentlessly place little guys into the battlefield. I have more cretures than they have removal/bounce/counters so in the end the board is mine. Crypt Rats help wrath away boards and players and Gnaw to the Bone makes sure there is no chance for an aggro deck to kill before I have everything set up to win.
My personal recomendation is that you brew the deck however you prefer but forego that many big eldrazi. Gurmag Angler has great synergy with discard and fetch-lite lands like Ash Barrens or Terramorphic Expanse. It also dodges doom-blade which is nice. If you splash blue you can have Striped Riverwinder which dodges targeted removal and happily jumps into your graveyard on command. In Rackdos colors you have Horror of the Broken Lands with synergy for discard Ingot Chewer for affinity and some other fatty with cycling or evoke I don't remember. Personaly I would also drop cathartic reunion as the heavy control meta makes it read "discard 3 cards including a card named cathartic reunion and spend 2 mana to bait a counterspel". Also if you are running red and discard for your reanimator list Dragon Breath can easily make you win a turn earlier and dodge all that pesky sorcery speed removal and letting your oponents untap.
Have fun with the deck, I would be very interested to see where this takes you as I haven't tried brewing Rakdos reanimator...yet.

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!

"4 Claim / Fame The new card can rebuy DRS, Dreadnought, Bob, and Hunted Horror (16 Targets); +2/+0 and haste can crack a game open. This card is a psuedo reanimate for your deck."
4 Unearth could also go into this slot if you prefer a one mana card. Fame does great things to win you the game out of now where, but unearth is more efficient all by itself.

Trtl - Apprentice lets you ramp into Razaketh, while Priest is a free creature.
Gigi - First, Deathmark is probably a meta card, so that can come out for Priest. Codex Shredder seems too mana intensive to be relevant and can be replaced with Sacrifice. Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead were probably meant to reanimate Sidisi, so they can be replaced with Unearth (to get a cheap creature to tutor again) and Bob.
