Crow-Umbra on Aleshé
3 months ago
Hi there, I saw your deck on /r/EDH, and thought I'd offer some pieces of feedback, as I've been brewing and playing Alesha a lot these past few months.
Personally, I'd suggest removing both Grenzo and Chainer, as they aren't super consistent, and their abilities can compete with Alesha's activated ability. If you want repeatable discard, I'd suggest Perpetual Timepiece and/or Sands of Delirium. Perpetual Timepiece can also be an insurance piece against graveyard hate. Also, you may want to replace Ashnod's Altar with Altar of Dementia, since you can either self-mill or ping opponents.
In a similar vein as the suggestions for Grenzo and Chainer, check out Twilight Prophet as a potential replacement for Mentor of the Meek. Mentor's activation may compete with Alesha in early turns.
Also, I'd suggest Smothering Tithe over Greed, since opponents usually don't pay the Tithe cost in earlier turns. Similarly, Curse of Opulence can help you ramp and shift a target to someone else's back.
Shifting Shadow can help filter through your deck and also fill up your graveyard
You may want to consider replacing Elenda with something like Noosegraf Mob or Chittering Witch. Elenda may get hated out before she gets big enough for a decent pay off. Noosegraf Mob will "punish" opponents for just playing as they normally would, and can be recurred, and Chittering Witch will always ETB with at most 3 tokens (or however big your games usually are). Chittering Witch also has a sac outlet that can be used for removal, but does compete with Alesha.
If you'd like, check out my Alesha deck Awkward Eye Contact with Death. My build is a bit more of combo/go wide with evasive creatures if combo fails or isn't online yet. I run stuff like Impact Tremors and Syr Konrad, the Grim, to get group-slug damage off of ETBs and LTBs. In my description, I also have some links to other Alesha decks I used as primers, and there is some good feedback in my archived comments.

Noosegraf Mob can get out of hand pretty quick if not dealt with. Duplicant can be used as repeatable exile with Alesha. I see you have Master of Cruelties, but have you met its cousins Ebonblade Reaper and Raving Dead . +1 from a fellow Alesha Fan, so much fun and a versatile commander they can be.

Raving Dead is a gross card as well. Sorry, I'm done now.
