I know this looks like a pile of jank. This is one of the most fun and powerful decks I've played. It is quite hard to play well and will reward you for making good decisions.
A few basic tips:
Avoid exposing Alessi to removal that doesn't cost a card like Vara's Favor or Heart of the Vault.
Don't commit too much onto the board against a deck with sweepers. Take your time, you usually have inevitability.
On 7 power, you can merchant for parliament to get 2 owls.
It is often correct to save seek power, either to trigger Alessi or delay choosing a color.
