Sorry to spam another response, I just read your updated deck description, and I think your gut feeling on removing the +1/+1 counter sub-theme is correct. If you want your creatures to connect, you could use stuff like Spirit Mantle or equipment with Deathtouch or "unblockable", like Basilisk Collar or Whispersilk Cloak to help sneak damage through. Key to the City is a piece of tech used by many Alesha lists as a means to push damage through and also get cards into the yard.
Another fun subtheme I played around with is to recur creatures that punch very heavily if they connect, like Virtus the Veiled, Raving Dead, and the infamous Master of Cruelties. At one point, I had a Menace subtheme with stuff like Goblin War Drums, Sonorous Howlbonder, and Labyrinth Raptor.
Alesha has a lot of tech available to her, to the point of being a bit overwhelming. I think by the time I retired my Alesha deck, I had tried out like 3-4 build variations. Towards the end, I realized the deck worked better (for me), when Alesha wasn't the primary aggro and reanimation option.

Rankle, Master of Pranks really has the perfect abilities but I'm not sure how to sneak him past enemy defenses to deal combat damage to a player. The Stronghold Rats come with shadow, so it was an easy pick. I do have Whispersilk Cloak but that's about it. At my LGS, running flyers is the norm. I have no idea if that's how it is at most places, so it may be more of a local quirk that makes Rankle harder to benefit from.
I swapped out a basic for Mikokoro, Center of the Sea.

Neat deck. I like the theme that you are going for. Here are a couple thoughts:
Maybe a few more ways to ensure your creatures connect? Any of Cover of Darkness (a bit pricey), Fear, Trailblazer's Boots, Changeling Outcast, Dauthi Voidwalker, Access Tunnel (most of your stuff is small), Whispersilk Cloak, or Prowler's Helm could work.

Not an aura but Whispersilk Cloak is an equipment you can equip that gives Shroud. Almost identical to hexproof. I believe the difference is the creature can't be the target of ANY spell from opponents OR yourself.

That's true, you do probably need some protection. Thankfully, green loves hexproof. Also, you're 100% right about Neverwinter but it's still not a terrible deal.
Treefolk Umbra, Snake Umbra, Boar Umbra, Spider Umbra, and most importantly, Bear Umbra are all of the green totem armor cards that will protect against destroys and combat damage. Some of them are great, others so-so, I'll let you decide.
Alpha Authority is a good one, especially since hydras love trample.

Interesting list! It seems like you are trying to go somewhat voltron which I find odd.
I don't think Magnetic Theft is needed.
I'd suggest Brilliant Restoration over Tiana, Ship's Caretaker. My problem with Tiana is that she has to be out when your stuff is destroyed. Brilliant Restoration get everything and is a great top deck.
Cards I'd consider adding: Blind Obedience, Court of Ambition, Court of Grace, Crawlspace, Curse of Conformity, Curse of Disturbance, Curse of Fool's Wisdom, Curse of Opulence, Curse of Silence, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Ghostly Prison, Mesa Enchantress, Monologue Tax, Torment of Scarabs, Trespasser's Curse

The Sword of _ and __ cycle is expensive but very strong if you wanted to add those.
