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

So, take into account what kind of deck you want to play. Aggro? Cut the board wipes. Control? Add more removal, take most of your creatures out. I'm going to work ona n aggro gameplan since that looks like whre your deck is leaning towards.
Cut: Tragic Poet
Archon of Emeria (You are an aggro deck and want to be able to cast more than one creature in the same turn)
Djeru, With Eyes Open (you run no planeswalkers, also a bad card)
Smite the Monstrous All your sorcerys
Novice Knight you run no equipment
Now this might seem like a lot, but I will give you some suggestions for cards that will help further your gameplan
Creatures: currently you are running some really good cards as one ofs and bad cards with more copies, such as; Dauntless Bodyguard , Leonin Vanguard , Hunted Witness , Luminarch Aspirant Venerated Loxodon which is a great finisher, and Speaker of the Heavens .
Removal: If you want to go with some of the best white removal ever printed that is modern legal, but a little expensive, go with Path to Exile . If not Path to Exile would be much better than Hieromancer's Cage , Conclave Tribunal is pretty good, but I wouldn't run more than 5 removal spells since you want to be going wide with your creatures and a hand ful of removal will just stall the game and you will lose in the end. You want to end the game fast while maintaining a high life score.

I would think about including as many Soul Sisters as possible: Anointer Priest, Soul Warden, Impassioned Orator, Soul's Attendant, Suture Priest and maybe Answered Prayers. These will gain you a lot of time. There is also lump life gain like Conclave Phalanx and Dwarven Priest that work very well with all your blink effects. Peach Garden Oath is also a pretty amazing common. These creatures could easily replace many of your filler creatures, like Ancestral Statue (doesn't provide enough advantage for the cost), Aven Skirmisher, Devoted Hero, Kor Outfitter, Leonin Elder, Savannah Lions and Segovian Angel.
In your lands, you could be running a lot more non-basics to help you out. All the cycling lands, Secluded Steppe, Drifting Meadow and Desert of the True, are great options for filtering through your deck. Other good options are Idyllic Grange, Kabira Crossroads, Radiant Fountain, Remote Farm and Sejiri Steppe.
I hope some of this was helpful!

Great. Dwarven Priest could be an addition, but honestly this deck is amazing. +1

Personally I'd drop the Court Clerics for three Ajani's Welcome or an additional Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant giving you three each which gives you an open card meaning you could add another Gaze of Justice or put in three Reciprocates / Silences. You could drop the one Dwarven Priest for another Leonin Warleader or a second Shalai, Voice of Plenty.

Hey there, did you have a goal in mind for the deck or a budget that can help with card suggestions? Just from peeking at it I see a lot of flyers already and aggressive creatures.
Some basic budget instants I like for a white deck like yours would be Adamant Will or Sheltering Light for protecting your low toughness creatures. This could be used offensively or on defense to allow you to swing back strong the next turn. Gideon's Reproach for removing tough attackers or blockers without losing one of your creatures. I would run Make a Stand over Inspired Charge. I feel like giving every creature you have indestructible is better than the extra +1/+1 that you get for Inspired charge with 1 less mana to cast than inspired charge.
For creatures I would consider removing the 2 Dwarven Priest and adding 2 more Star-Crowned Stag to clear the way when attacking. Maybe Aerial Responder instead of Loxodon Line Breaker? Vigilance, flying and lifelink all in one package for the same casting cost! Daybreak Chaplain might be a good replacement for Sun Sentinel since it is tougher to kill and has the lifelink to to help you endure until you can get your high cost angels out.
Hope that helps give you a few ideas for tweaks. Good luck!

I think 24 lands are too much if you're not gonna be playing Drawing cards. I also think Dwarven Priest isn't necessary and too slow. Maybe 4 Ajani's is too much too. Cut 2 of them for Metallic Mimics, maybe..? And there are so many Amonkhet cats that I'm sad to not see in this deck. Adorned Pouncer is one of them.

I left out the lifelink cards on purpose cause they slow down the life gaining proces for making tokens or a giant pridemate. I will test Victory's Herald, I've had a few games that I have a giant pridemate but can't finish because they can block it.
I'm not really looking to make it into a modern deck. But I have taken the Dwarven Priest out, they are not so effective!
