Suture Priest Discussion

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

D'oh! I initially had the Judge's Familiar countering Rings of Brighthearth , but tried to dumb down the question to streamline it, and forgot to change the other "Rings" in there, which should be referring to the (now) Suture Priest .

For ages, I've been under the impression that once the stack starts to resolve you can't add back to it, but recently I was told different, so I need more clarity.
Say I have four Judge's Familiar on the battlefield, and my opponent has five available mana and casts Suture Priest , which I intend to counter using my eyrie of Judge's Familiar . I've been under the impression that in order to guarantee I counter the Rings spell I would need to sac and put all four Familiars on the stack before anything resolves. But I learned that I can do each separately...? Wait for one to resolve, see what my opponent does, then use another if needed? Additionally, I was informed that I can't stack them anyway, without someone else adding to the stack first, because once I put one on the stack the permission has to go around the circle before I can do anything else, and once it gets back to me it resolves before I can do anything anyway... is this correct as well?

Looks like a fun starter commander! Black White lifegain is a definite fun archtype to build, maybe work up towards something like Karlov of the Ghost Council or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic ! I know starting out budget is important as you don't want to invest in cards you might not like, so I've made the recommendations with that in mind!
Spirit Loop seems like it could have a home in your deck, as it's a consistent 2cmc spell that you can keep casting and getting back to trigger your commander.
Well of Lost Dreams Dawn of Hope Cosmos Elixir Are all sources of card draw that synergize with your lifegain gameplan! Your commander's colors are notoriously known for lacking card draw and ramp, so these might help keep you in the game!
Blind Obedience seems perfect for your deck!
Lurrus of the Dream-Den offers consistent recursion and allows you to cast lower cmc permanents. Kami of False Hope could also pair with this really well, as it's basically a fog effect that you can cast for cheap over and over!
In your current list, it appears a little removal light (which to be fair is meta dependent). since you're playing white, you have access to cards like Darksteel Mutation and Reprobation , which can be a headache for your opponents to deal with if you enchant their commander. Also Victimize is a great catchall removal spell.
For cuts, I'd recommend evaluating your cards in terms of whether they actively win the game or help you do what you want. In your current list Fortified Rampart I've found to be underwhelming and doesn't further your gameplan. I'd also recommend replacing the following: Star-Crowned Stag Skeleton Archer Reaper of Night Kor Scythemaster Inspiring Captain Hailstorm Valkyrie Gargoyle Sentinel Fiend Binder Angel of the Dawn Courier Griffin Silverflame Ritual Chaplain's Blessing Splendid Agony Djeru's Renunciation Sinister Possession .
That being said, it can sometimes be fun just trying your best with whatever cards are lying around! Hopefully the suggestions can give your deck a little pep!

Lots of changes in this revision:
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is out for Heliod, Sun-Crowned . Heliod will make things bigger and bigger as we gain life, which may help us with a combat win, which is all Elesh norn really did, but also can stack a ton of counters on one creature to sac to Altar of Dementia . Yay mill wins!
Cavalier of Dawn is out for Skyclave Apparition . Apparition was a great suggestion by muddbones and is more abusable than Cavalier. Lowers the cmc curve, and I am not going to miss the possible enchantment recurral. We got that covered.
Odric, Lunarch Marshal is out for Mardu Woe-Reaper . Odric helps with combat wins, but Akroma's Will does it better, and doubles as protection. I hardly ever swing for the win anyways, and the reaper is another cheap creature, and it’s ability will be triggered by ever zombie God-Eternal Oketra makes. Should keep graveyards nice and empty and help against decks that rely on them being filled. Did I mention it gains us LIFE too? Sweet card.
Return to Dust was dropped for Suture Priest . I keep going back and forth with Return... I’ll probably find another spot for it, since I’m a but light on non-creature removal anyways, but for now I wanted more Soul Warden effects. The bonus damage to opponents is nice too.
Austere Command and a Plains were dropped for Ancient Den and Flagstones of Trokair . Den is mostly for turning on Inventors' Fair to tutor out a win, and flagstones synergizes really well with Lotus Field .

Thank you for your feedback. Erebos, Bleak-Hearted would be a perfect addition, Arcane Signet and Mind Stone also. Who do you think i shut cut? First thought where Suture Priest , Shalai, Voice of Plenty and maybe Kambal, Consul of Allocation as he needs your opponents to do special stuff.
