Definitely love Alesha, our first magic Trans commander, my one big observation here is that your deck runs an underwhelming number of low cost creatures. So you're not able to maximize Alesha's utility as a reanimator as it currently sits.
I would consider cutting some of your more costly creatures, as well as the spells Lich's Caress (too costly for what it does), Knight Watch (I know you have a knight subtheme, but it's overpriced for its payoff), Fell Specter (you're not running enough discard effects to make it worthwhile), Dwarven Priest (Better off replaced with a different life gain utility like Daxos, Blessed by the Sun / Soul Warden / Suture Priest etc).
A powerful add for your deck could be Cathars' Crusade

ok, cut the following:
Noble Purpose, Defy Death, Entreat the Angels, Angel of Grace, Angel of Sanctions (for Christs sake just run Path to Exile ), Avacyn, Guardian Angel, Serra's Guardian, Segovian Angel, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun (you're not going wide when you play one expensive angel a turn), Angel of Dawn.
Add more efficient angels, and add better removal/board wipes.

why so many wipes? with so many permanents what are they good for? just because Bishop of Wings would leave a few Spirits? it can't be that.
and what are the tutors for?

It's your boy Jason.
Here's a bunch of cards that should be less than $1 that I think could be possible additions. Feel free to ignore me. Also this is Zach: Zjadler and this is Stephen: icefrigi if you want to check out their decks.

I use Impassioned Orator in my MTG Arena Lifegain deck, as well as Daxos, Blessed by the Sun that you also are already running. Depending on how this deck plays (I've not tested it) you might want another creature with a similar effect.
Also, I've found that Sacred Cat is quite good synergy for Daxos in particular, since you can get 2 casts and 2 deaths out of each one you include (total of 4 lifegain triggers from Daxos, 2 from Orator).
Speaker of the Heavens seems like he'd be a solid addition here, and
Finally Light of Hope can be useful for getting to your activation count on Resplendent Angel, and it's got added utility as well for some enchantment hate and potential to save a creature from something like Shock tipping over the last damage to kill it off.

Reznorboy - Good day to you!
I am not really sure what benefit there is to playing Instants and Sorceries over creatures to produce tokens. I could see playing Saproling Migration over Emmara, but the effect is more or less the same.
One of the things I attempt to do with my decks is have them each possess a different game plan. I see the appeal of abusing enchantments, though I already have an Enchantress Deck in Karametra and, as for Bastion of Remembrance, an Aristocrats Deck in Adun Oakenshield. I am an aggressive player at heart, and this deck was meant to embody that. These game plans are fun, but the aggro style is distinct.
Now, however aggressive I like to be, I love secondary game plans. Carnival of Souls is a card I have wanted to abuse, though never got around to experimenting. It works well with the deck, given the horrendous number of tokens it spews, yet I do not have many solid cards in here with which I may spend all that mana. I am open to suggestions on that part.
Yes, tutors. I own multiple Demonic Tutors, so perhaps I should add one...
Thank you very much, and I would love further guidance with Carnival of Souls. Black is more of a splash in this list, so I may need to rework most of it.
Have a lovely day.
