If I was there, I am not alive now or I would not be alive now.(indicative or subjunctive usage)

  1. If I was there yesterday, I am not alive now or I would not be alive now.
  1. If I had been there yesterday, I am not alive now or I would not be alive now.

Which one between 1 and 2 is more widely used among native English speakers?

p.s.: The focus of the question is : If I was there vs. If I had been there

Answer

Native English speakers would say

If I had been there yesterday, I would not be alive now.

You could change now to today as both are talking about days and it sounds more natural.
