Archon of Justice Discussion
1 month ago
Hey, Caves of Koilos , Concealed Courtyard and Shambling Vent are more budget dual lands. Esper Panorama can search for a basic Plains or Swamp. Reliquary Tower is very good when drawing a lot of cards. Consider adding more cards that can search for Skullclamp? Games where you have Skullclamp are going to be much better than not therefore having more ways to get Skullclamp directly into your hand is pretty beneficial. For budget consider Open the Armory , Diabolic Tutor and Relic Seeker ?
Requiem Angel , Viscera Seer , Reveillark , Archon of Justice are all budget upgrades for cards here. Requiem is a 5/5 flier can be a finisher and in combination with another token producer, a sac outlet and Teysa can make a lot of Spirits. When Reveillark leaves the battlefield as a result of it dying it triggers Teysa getting to reanimate 4 creatures with power 2 or less which is good with afterlife creatures. Justice is a 4/4 flier who when it dies can exile any permanent; exile two permanents if it triggers Teysa.
Cards to consider cutting:
- 2x Plains
- 2x Swamp
- Orzhov Guildgate
- Butcher of Malakir: don't need her since you have Dictate of Erebos .
- Martyred Rusalka
- Plagued Rusalka
- Pious Evangel
- Xathrid Necromancer
- Harvester of Souls
- Final Payment

Love the deck - been wanting to make a similar one for a while. accordianing suggestions to avoid filling the page.
Roc Egg - double dips as well, making multiple 3/3 flying tokens when it dies with your general on the field.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad - pumps out lifelinkers, pumps out emblems. double win.
Hallowed Spiritkeeper - the bigger the graveyard, the bigger the swarm
Anointed Procession - Double up on tokens. works with Treasure & Clue tokens too
Wurmcoil Engine - double dips into a on death trigger
Hangarback Walker - double dips into, you guessed it, a death trigger. sensing a theme in my suggestions...
Pitiless Plunderer - gives treasure tokens on you creature's death.
Revel in Riches - gives treasure tokens on enemy creature's death, and an alternate win con
Sacred Mesa - also triggers a sac proc each turn you keep it around
Hidden Stockpile - a sac outlet that grants creatures.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion - pumps out tokens 3 at a time, or wide down the fatties. or both.
Twilight Drover - make tokens when tokens die. the cycle continues.
Custodi Soulbinders - makes tokens based on how many creatures were in play.
White Sun's Zenith - EoT mana dump for all the tokens. follow up with general cast, swing.
Entrapment Maneuver - force a solo attacker to die, makes tokens. handy little overlooked combat trick.
Lingering Souls - kind of a staple of Orzhov spirits, was kinda supprised not to see it.
Luminarch Ascension - stall to make stupidly cheap angels.
Shadows of the Past - lets you dig quickly through your deck with aenough death effects. doubles as a recurable life drain effect once your yard is deep enough
Sangromancer - death is life. who knew?
Bloodchief Ascension starts out small, but starts draining hard once it gets rolling.
Vampiric Rites is a solid, cheap card draw engine for tokens.
Thallid Soothsayer is it's legged, slightly more expensive brother (no life gain, but no black mana cost. more expensive, but has legs. bit of give and take, really)
Seraph of the Scales - this card is solid, if not amazing, so I was rather suprised to not see it here.
Yosei, the Morning Star - either lock down 2 opponents for a turn, or one opponenet for 2 turns. either way is a solid win.
Archon of Justice - exile a threat on death. simple enough.
Ashen Rider - triggers coming and going, but kinda pricey mana wise. worth looking at if nothing else.
Kokusho, the Evening Star - drain ALL THE THINGS!
Solemn Simulacrum - goes in most decks, didn't see it here so I figured I'd mention it.
Vindictive Lich - gives alot of options for a single death effect.

Consider Ravenous Chupacabra Orzhov Locket Junk Diver Dead Man's Chest Big Game Hunter Settle the Wreckage Angel of Condemnation Fiend Hunter weird way to actually permanently exile creatures with this since it's two paragraphs and has 2 triggers on the stack. Flickerform Puppeteer Clique not sure but may be able to permanently steal with this if you exile it with a different card so it's not in when the exile trigger goes off. Didnt look up the interaction/rules. Triad of Fates slow but works perfect for what you want. Maybe Body Snatcher this one is kinda a stretch-ish.

If you like some these suggestions I offer more help.
Good luck with your deck.

I value low curves for a personal deck building as I come from a more competitive meta, so cards I find inefficient are cards like:
- Ethereal Absolution
- Debtors' Knell
- Obzedat's Aid
- Entreat the Dead
- Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
- Pontiff of Blight
- Maw of the Obzedat
- Butcher of Malakir
- Angel of Despair
All these cards are a bit too clunky and don't provide much additional benefit with running in strategy with Teysa Karlov. More die trigger effects or spirit production are great, so I would recommend more cards like Archon of Justice or sac outlets and die triggers that provide card advantage like Grim Haruspex . Just my perspective imo, it is your deck :P
Hope that helps! ^^

You could use Adarkar Valkyrie to immediately returned a creature that just pulled double triggers to play to sac again for more 'fun'.
If your creatures are dying you will probably want Dictate of Erebos and/or Grave Pact to make your opponents lose creatures too. If you're saccing Abyssal Gatekeeper then they'll really have a hard time keeping peeps on the board.
Archon of Justice exiles its target on death so removing 2 problematic creatures must be even better plus gives you some oomph in the air to close out the game. Ashen Rider will get any target, coming or going but watch that CMC.
Merciless Eviction exiles so can be good or bad [anything affected isn't 'dying']...you will profit more if your boardwipes are destroy effects so maybe Austere Command is a better substitute.

Sorry About the Delay.
So far I have a few suggestions:
Karmic Guide : Can be some helpful recursion
Gilded Drake : This could be fun, especially if you start bouncing him back to your hand! He is expensive though, so that could be a problem.
Wall of Denial : A solid wall if you ever need it
Akroma, Angel of Wrath : Just a big beater
Angelic Arbiter : A good way to control the board
Archon of Justice : Some good removal
Consecrated Sphinx : A good card, will draw some hate though (but better they use removal on him and not Isperia).
Linvala, Keeper of Silence : Some good control if you run into decks with a lot of this.
Sphinx of Magosi : Not the best card, but I personally like it. It's fun to play, and it can give you cards while it gets bigger.
Tidespout Tyrant : An absolute must in this deck
Yosei, the Morning Star : Some more good control
Venser, Shaper Savant : More good bounce
Dissipation Field : If your fliers don't discourage people from attacking you this definitely will, especially since they know you can name cards.
Gitaxian Probe : Amazing for this deck
Telepathy : Same as above
Favorable Winds : Good support
Reliquary Tower : This is a staple in all my EDH decks
I hope that this wasn't too overwhelming. If you need any more help just let me know!
