Not sure if this should go in physics of chemistry will ask here anyway
Edit: As in, if I have an alloy made of two metals, will the Young's modulus of the Alloy always be between the Young's modulus of the two metals?

Of course it does.

My limited knowledge of alloys tells me that alloys are tougher than their constituents. However, I think this refers to hardness and not tensile strength so there's no good reason to think this is that general.

I would however, expect the Young modulus of an alloy to be different from either material with 99.999% certainty

I would expect it to be higher than either of them with more like 60% certainty, and the chance of it being lower than both as very low.

(Numbers reflect my confidence, I don't know very much about this though. They do NOT represent some survey of all alloys, of which exactly 0.0001% happen to be identical.)
