gw1108 I think I agree on the mana ramp and lands. I'd like another 1 land and 2 ramp, just having a hard time deciding what to cut to get it.

However, devils advocate on the card draw, with Midnight Clock, Pull from Tomorrow, Bident of Thassa, Distant Melody, Skullclamp, Mentor of the Meek, Sire of the Storm, Ethereal Investigator, Bygone Bishop, Ghostly Pilferer, Drogskol Reaver, do I really need more card draw? Do the creatures not count as much for card draw since some of them have a bit higher CMC?

Thank you for the feedback, I look forward to your response!

Surprised not to see Tocasia's Welcome Bennie Bracks, Zoologist Welcoming Vampire Mentor of the Meek or Rumor Gatherer in the mix. Grand Crescendo

I'm gonna put Mondrak in the 99 of my mono-white tokens deck.

Crow-Umbra on Alesha combo

Totally understandable sadsapphic. I recognize that my play-style preference is that I tend to shy away from paying into activated costs; I think I preferred to have the extra mana up for removal/interaction when relevant. Kind of funny how Mentor of the Meek was a "pricey" card at one point as White's premier draw option. I think I eventually replaced Mentor of the Meek in my Alesha deck with Welcoming Vampire since the Flying chump blocking was helpful to have.

I did a nostalgia driven update of my old Alesha list in the past month or two with pretty much all the cards I suggested in my last comment, plus Preston. I've kinda considered proxying up the stuff that it shares with my Isshin deck, and adding her back into my rotation.

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.

I think Linden, the Steadfast Queen could yield you a ton more life than some of your other lifegain options; especially considering you intend to win through combat. Mentor of the Meek could be another interesting draw resource for you.

I presume Liquimetal Torque is in here to combo with something? Please remove it as you have no artifact tutoring in this deck, so chances of you pulling off the combo you're hoping for are extremely slim.

Crow-Umbra on Alesha, who keeps playing cards

Happy to see more people giving Alesha a try. She was also my first venture into graveyard shenanigans.

In regards to the sluggishness, what about your deck feels slow? Your deck looks like it could use a little more draw, & maybe some slightly faster ramp (at quick glance).

I think Boros Signet & co, and Talisman of Conviction & co could replace some of your 3 mana rocks.

Some cool draw pieces that can fit in:

Hope these suggestions are helpful. Alesha is a really fun commander.
