Yes that was what I meant. Zombies are best when the whole deck is meant for them. My suggestion? Take everything Alesha does into account and focus on it exclusively. She is aggressive, run aggressive creatures/ enchantments/ artifacts (Whispersilk Cloak, Fervor, Gratuitous Violence, Urabrask the Hidden). She recurs things, run recursion enchantments/ spells (Debtors' Knell, Reanimate, Marshal's Anthem, Return to the Ranks, Ravos, Soultender). She does a lot, so run protection enchantments/ artifacts/ spells. (Any of the Swords, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Archangel Avacyn Flip)

@KeelHaul10 I do have a primer in the works but wanted to put the deck up to be seen until it is done. SO far this deck has functioned in two ways. Early game aggression with Concordant Crossroads and Elvish Piper shenanigans have won me matches. Heavy board presence as early as turn 3 and 4 has set me to being a target in my play group and thanks to Meren, the only time I dont come back from board wipes is when I am occasionally short on lands (I usually sit on 5 lands and 1 mana rock before winning "early game"). My late game answers speak for themselves but as for combos that I will wait to show in a fully written deck analysis.

Here. Try this link.
Also, get temur out of your mind cause you will never get a proper theme of such things with that color combo.

Fetches like Entomb and Buried Alive can work wonders with your commander and be done near instantly with her ability. Illusionist's Bracers would also do you well to double that trigger. Consider focusing on your commanders abilities instead of trying to make a deck themed to something not as relevant to her playstyle.

Commander / EDH
My latest iteration of my favorite commander and am looking to make it stay consistent and maintain a viable threat even in the mid game (its early and late game have both paid off well.

Erebos is the best all around black commander for anything honestly. Card draw, indestructable, late game threat and stops lifegain decks by existing.

Okay, one last important question for you. What do you want to do with this deck. When you play a game with your friends and choose this deck, what is your intent on achieving victory?
You want stax and etb effects. Here are a few essentials that are affordable: Yisan, the Wanderer Bard (rank up those counters fast for tutor), Captain Sisay (tutor potential wincons/ essentials), Weathered Wayfarer, Rhystic Study (good for any deck with blue).
Stax (aka evil crap): Gaddock Teeg, Aven Mindcensor, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Dovin Baan, Dueling Grounds, Silent Arbiter, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Ward of Bones, and Fatespinner are a small number of cards I can think of off the top of my head.
ETB effects: Panharmonicon (an essential!), Palinchron/ Peregrine Drake, Deadeye Navigator (infinite mana with Palinchron/ Peregrine Drake), Karmic Guide and Reveillark (can infinite etb triggers), Sun Titan, Woodfall Primus, Protean Hulk, Aura Shards (good stuff here), Solemn Simulacrum, Avenger of Zendikar, terastadon, Wood Elves, Eternal Witness (prob a first grab for etb cards), Mulldrifter, Coiling Oracle, Wall of Omens / Wall of Blossoms, Gilded Drake, Soul Warden / Essence Warden / Soul's Attendant, Venser, Shaper Savant, any cards with cloning effects I could go on.
Do any of these call out to you? Its not wise to just pick and choose, know what you want to do overall and hone in on the cards that fit and synergize the best from there.
