Alesha, Boonweaver Wanna Be

Commander / EDH*



My Alesha Who Smiles at Death EDH deck, Combos abound!

Main Win conditions are

Reveillark + Karmic Guide + (Mirror Entity/Sac outlet) + (Falkenrath noble/Blood Artist)Reveillark + Karmic Guide + Goblin BombardmentReveillark + Karmic Guide + Altar of Dementia

Kiki-Jiki + Zealous Conscripts

Anafenza + Redcap

The idea is that this deck attempts to make this combo happen with buried alive and alesha's natural recursion, and with a back up plan of value creatures that can recurred to grind out the game until the combo can happen.

You may be asking why not just play boonweaver karador? and to that I say, yeah you're probably right, but I want to do something with mardu, and something a little more friendly, and my meta, although competitive is not so cutthroat as to call for a karador list. So I wanna have fun ya know? anyways let me know what you think!

Giving your opponents a fresh 7 cards is very risky, so i am not a fan of Wheel of Fortune and its friends. Also, they make Living Death a very risky spell by filling your opponents' graves. In my version of Alesha, i play Mindslicer, Necrogen Mists and Bottomless Pit instead, as the effect is hard on lots of decks, but Alesha is explosive and provides so much card advantage that you can easily handle it. Some cards that i found great but don't see in your list are: Feldon of the Third Path, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Obsidian Battle-Axe, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Weathered Wayfarer, Ranger of Eos, Siege-Gang Commander. Instead you play Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Burnished Hart and Ashnod's Altar, but have relatively few ways to actually make use of all the extra mana. Finally, i think you should include creatures that you can tutor up and use to fight specific threats. Reliquary Monk, Manic Vandal, Keening Apparition, War Priest of Thune or Necrotic Sliver can destroy artifacts and/or enchantments in case that's necessary. If you are worried about lands, Fulminator Mage is the best option, though Avalanche Riders and Ravenous Baboons are more budget friendly. Graveyard interaction could come in form of Agent of Erebos or Faerie Macabre.
Potential cuts: Darksteel Plate, Iroas, God of Victory, Falkenrath Noble, Darksteel Ingot.

Oh, i forgot to look at your lands. Shizo, Death's Storehouse is an absolute must, and Slayers' Stronghold also felt very good to me.

Also, your creature count seems low. If you want to make best use of Alesha, something like 35+ creatures would likely be a better number.
