Jaxis, the Troublemaker

Legendary Creature — Human Warrior

, , Discard a card: Create a token that's a copy of another target creature you control. It gains haste and "When this creature dies, draw a card." Sacrifice it at the beginning of the next end step. Activate this ability only as a sorcery.

Blitz (If you cast this for this spell's blitz cost, this gains haste and "When this creature dies, draw a card." Sacrifice this at the beginning of the next end step.)

Well I have it to keep the tokens made from cards like Flameshadow Conjuring and Molten Echoes like I do in my Jaxis, the Troublemaker deck, but I don't get them often enough. I'll likely sub it for something else.

Always happy to see another Alesha player! She was my favorite and longest running deck for a while before I took her apart about a year ago to build my Isshin deck.

All in all your deck looks fairly solid and like you have most of the core components that a more combo focused Alesha deck would want. Pulling off the Master of Cruelties resurrection with Alesha once is definitely a favorite memory from my time playing it.

I'd recommend checking out Jaxis, the Troublemaker if you like Preston, the Vanisher for getting additional token copies and value. Jaxis fits really nicely with Alesha's general game plan and does some solid work of filling your yard and also drawing with Blitz.

Although it may sound counter-intuitive, I'd actually recommend swapping out 2-4 lands for some mana rock ramp, like the cycles of Talisman of Indulgence or Orzhov Signet or even something like Hazoret's Monument. 40 lands is a bit high for a deck that isn't necessarily Landfall focused, or utilizing a higher land count as part of its strategy. Being able to cast mana rocks can be helpful on those earliest turns. Besides ritual spells and treasures, mana rocks are the next most helpful way for the non-Green color combos to try and keep pace on ramp.

Crow_Umbra on Alesha combo

Happy to see another Alesha combo deck. She was my old favorite before I converted the deck into Isshin about a year ago. I like your primer and think it's well-written and covers all the most important details for piloting the deck. I have a few recommendations for your consideration, in case you're looking to make swaps:

  • Gamble - Another tutor if you need one. I think the price has dropped a bit since it was recently reprinted in the Coin Flip Secret Lair deck.
  • Loran of the Third Path - Potentially repeatable removal with Alesha, and also a political draw piece.
  • Tocasia's Welcome - About 21 of your 34 creatures (including Alesha) would trigger it.
  • Welcoming Vampire - About 29-30 of your 34 creatures (including Alesha) would trigger it. I think this or Tocasia's Welcome could potentially replace Mentor of the Meek.
  • Jaxis, the Troublemaker -Can net you some additional token copies of stuff in a similar vein as Preston, and has additional upside to help you loot and draw.

I hope these suggestions are helpful. All in all your deck and primer are both solid.

Alesha has received some cool new tech in the past year that I'd recommend checking out:

Not new tech, but also worth looking at:

I hope these suggestions are helpful.

Your Alesha deck is off to a fairly solid start. She is an old favorite of mine, and probably one of my longer running commander decks before I retired her last February.

In terms of newer cards I've had on my radar for Alesha nostalgia reasons, I'd recommend checking out:

Best of luck with your brewing. Alesha is a lot of fun, and has plenty of avenues for build options as you get deeper into upgrades.

Happy to see more Alesha players! I have a few suggestions for your consideration. I think your deck looks solid, but a handful of cards could pull it together a bit more:

Alesha is an old favorite of mine! Happy to see more people playing her

Crow_Umbra on Alesha Aristocreanimator

Nice deck! Alesha received a lot of cool tech this year.

I'd recommend maybe swapping out Mentor of the Meek for Tocasia's Welcome, especially to run in tandem with the Welcoming Vampire in your 99. It looks like about 20 of your creatures, including Alesha, would trigger it.

Professional Face-Breaker could also play well with the Pitiless Plunderer in your 99.

Lastly, Jaxis, the Troublemaker and Preston, the Vanisher can get additional token copies for Alesha, and synergize both with her discard and reanimation sub-themes present in most of her decks.
