I am wondering if Brave the Sands when Liesa, Shroud of Dusk is on the battlefield (or any lifelink creature for that matter) would mean she gets double the lifelink since she can block 2 creatures at once. Am I reading how this interaction would work correctly or can she block 2 creatures but only get up to 5 lifelink?
Thanks in advance!

Too many lands. Cut 3-4.
Ajani's Mantra is bad.
Ajani's Welcome isn't needed here in my opinion, if you really want this kind of effect put in Soul's Attendant since it gives you life off of Cleric of Life's Bond. I probably wouldn't add either though.
Brave the Sands probably not worth it.
Cradle of Vitality . Even worse than Boon Reflection. Costs 4 mana to get it out and then requires a 2 mana investment everytime for not that much payoff.

Right off the cuff I would cut Blood Seeker , Voracious Vampire and Brave the Sands as they dont help you win with your life shenanigans. Keeping 1 copy of Blood Seeker may be decent against token or creature decks but that's up to you. Blood Burglar to me seems like a sub-optimal version of Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tithe Drinker so I would swap those. If you have the wallet, Exquisite Blood makes you go infinite with Vito so its an easy swap with Boon Reflection and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is insane, especially when combined with cards like Champion of Dusk and Sanctum Seeker . Indulging Patrician and Silversmote Ghoul is a path if you can consistently get to 3 life each turn. Some copies of Fatal Push or Heartless Act may do you some good because spot removal is nice in modern. You could also be spicy and go Abiding Grace + some decent one drops like Knight of the Ebon Legion , Indulgent Aristocrat , Guul Draz Assassin , Guul Draz Vampire and Vampire Cutthroat . That aside, Nighthawk Scavenger , Blood Artist , Legion's Landing Flip, Legion Lieutenant , and Drana's Emissary seem like they would fit nicely. I might cut some Cleric of life's bond as well, because its almost purely overshadowed by faster growing cards like Ajani's Pridemate and Sprite Dragon atm. I might also consider cutting 1 Boon Reflection and 1-2 lands to fit the mana curve a little more nicely. A lot of these are just pure suggestions, so the choice on what path is up to you. All in all, very cool deck. I am a big fan of trying to make Vito work, I hope you are successful in your journey and I hope this helps.

Everdawn Champion and Seraph of the Sword seem like perfect blockers. Other cards like Hundred-Handed One and Watcher in the Web . Also theres cards like High Ground and Brave the Sands help out big time as well. Someone mentioned Stuffy Doll I think that's a great one. Someone mentioned Guardian of the Gateless that card and all the cards that allow you to block multiple creatures go great with Godsend . Theres so many great blockers. Someone mentioned Ophiomancer , that's a fantastic suggestion.

Alesha is also one of my favorite commanders, and one I've spent a lot of time tinkering on. I think your list as you have it now has a lot of similarities to the list I had about a year ago. Here are some additional suggestions for your consideration:
Reconnaissance or Ghostly Prison or Authority of the Consuls or Dolmen Gate or Blind Obedience --> Brave the Sands - Reconnaissance can be especially helpful when attacking with Alesha and using her ability, since you can remove her and the reanimated creature from combat. The other enchantments mentioned are also helpful for putting up some defense, and putting your opponents at some kind of pacing or taxing disadvantage. Dolmen Gate is also helpful in a similar vein of Reconnaissance.
I hope this feedback is helpful. No worries if these suggestions don't line up with your budget or what your playgroup is cool with.

Your deck seems a little unfocused. For example, you're running Stoneforge Mystic (a non-Human btw), but not enough bomb Equipment to take advantage of her value.. Also, it's hard to tell exactly how you plan on winning in face of a stalled boardstate (outside of Odric).
I suggest dropping the Aristocrat stuff from the 98 (but keep the Xathrid Necromancer ), as well as a boardwipe or two, and replacing them with some fun (Voltron) toys for Kitty.. One equipment in particular is Vorrac Battlehorns , as it renders creatures with Menace effectively unblockable..
On the Tribal side of things, Champion of the Parish & Gallows at Willow Hill are worth considering. Brave the Sands is a thing. And finally, since you're a Mardu deck that likes to go wide, you may really appreciate Fervent Charge . Pair that with repeat combat effects (ex. Aggravated Assault ) for maximum value
