Looks like a fun mutate deck! I've also had success with cards like Raving Dead and Virtus the Veiled . It won't end the game, but the look of terror on opponents when they realize the creature has both deathtouch AND trample makes for some fun games!

If you're going for a more aggro & attack based Alesha build, I highly recommend using a Menace sub-theme. My Alesha deck was more aggro-focused at first, but I recently rehauled it to be more Aristocrats/Combo. Menace can help your creatures get through for damage. I'd suggest checking out:
For evasion help
For creatures that "hit heavy" despite their power, especially if they have Menace or other evasion:

Thought more about this and there's still tons of options for this deck really. In my previous comment I mention how you may want to double up on Extus's effect with stuff like Ravos, Soultender but there's also enchantment options that may be a little harder for your opponents to get rid of. Stuff like Debtors' Knell and Palace Siege can also be useful enchantments to help you bring useful stuff back to cast multiple times. Crackling Doom is also a pretty good card that you could add as a substitute for any of the kill spells. A possibility for this deck could also be to reanimate some troublesome creatures for your opponents like Master of Cruelties Raving Dead Virtus the Veiled or Dire Fleet Ravager to help make killing your opponents with the sorcery easier. More boardwipes that only affect your opponents would also be good so something like Ruinous Ultimatum can help make the job a little easier. Other boardwipes such as Slash the Ranks Austere Command Merciless Eviction and Martial Coup give you some more options and not only target creatures but other pesky permanents as well.

Looks like mean ol' Torgaar is back at it again!
Unfortunately, the ruling on Wound Reflection only activates if the opponent lost life. With the wording on Torgaar, the life total of the target player simply becomes half, not actually dealing damage or any loss of life.
Another mean card to look into is Raving Dead , does the same kind of thing as Virtus the Veiled . I run it in a mutate deck and I can say giving either of those creatures a power bump and trample is mean! So something like Loxodon Warhammer or Shadowspear .
Another route to look at Torgaar, Famine Incarnate is to consistently stabilize yourself at 20 with his ability. So things like Conjurer's Closet are an interesting option to keep at 20 in the late game.
A different way to go about this is to go with some instant speed or enchantment abilities that trigger when your creature dies. You already have Kaya's Ghostform in the deck, some other cards could be Supernatural Stamina , and Abnormal Endurance . These also can double up on some of your other creature ETBs if you play these in response to the creatures activation of self sacrifice or a board wipe.
While a little pricy Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools also seems to want to do what the deck wants, creating tokens, sacrificing them, and getting out your commander from the command zone!

Thanks for the advice. I took your suggestions into consideration and although I did already have Eternal Witness in the list I added the others. As well as Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle. I removed Viridian Zealot for Caustic Caterpillar, Caller of the Pack for Sakura-Tribe Elder, Raving Dead for Plaguecrafter, and honestly can't remember what for Viscera Seer lol. Geth, Lord of the Vault's utility at getting opponents artifacts and creature made him hard to part with and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief being able to kill indestructible but I'm always open to more suggestions and thank you for taking your time to help.

Forcing people to attack means no blockers pretty frequently. You have the colors for Virtus the Veiled, Raving Dead or Quietus Spike. Master of Cruelties is less useful because if you can't attack with all creatures you have to attack with the most possible.
