I've been playing on and off for the past 7ish years. I started off primarily playing casual Modern, and have been playing EDH for about a year now.

In regards to my play-style, I like to try to balance fun and optimization, even if that means the deck is not an 8/10 or super optimized. I try to aim for "Casual but optimized where applicable".

I tend to stay away from combos as the primary focus of decks, and utilize them more as additional win-con options. The idea of always tutoring & playing towards the same combo lines is kind of boring to me. I like knowing the options are there if I wanted to lean into them more.

Any decks visible on my profile are what I'm currently playing in paper, and anything else in my "View All Decks" is a retired list or a WIP.

If you want an idea of my meta check out our page Mages of Magic Meta.

No prob, glad you liked the suggestions Jeepod! I used to run all of those cards in my Alesha deck, but recently switched her up to be more combo/aristocrats focused.

I almost forgot to suggest Behind the Scenes as another way to grant some blanket evasion. Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner can also help with both getting your smaller creatures through, as well as filling up your yard and keeping your hand fresh. Kinda sucks she can't get Alesha through, but works for any of your other small dudes.

There's also Zephyr Boots coming out in Strixhaven for some additional looting effects

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:

Nice deck! I've occasionally considered turning my Siona, Captain of the Pyleas deck into full Sigarda, Host of Herons Voltron.

Have you ever used Concerted Effort ? I like to run it in my Voltron builds so my board can benefit from any of the keywords on the Auras I have out.

Said on Alesha Goblins...

Overall, your deck looks good! It looks like you have 2 Siege-Gang Commander in your list. A couple cards you might want to consider in its spot might be Molten Echoes or Goblin Gardener (more meta call if you have troublesome lands in your meta).

I would also consider checking out Valakut Exploration over Outpost Siege . It has the advantage of getting the exiled cards into your graveyard at end of turn, & pings for damage as well.

I would also suggest putting in Pyre of Heroes or Herald's Horn over Coat of Arms . The damage buffs are cool and all, but sometimes you want to get some additional advantage or filtering options.

I also run Alesha, & she's one of my favorite commanders. Check out the list on my profile if you're interested.

Glad you liked the deck mathemagic314, it's a lot of fun to play. I'm definitely keeping an eye on some of the UG stuff from Strixhaven, like Echoing Equation and Double Major . The clone sub-theme adds a fun twist to how we can create Mutate stacks.
