Elenda, the Dusk Rose should be in the deck.
Remove Sadistic Hypnotist only because de it’s not an instant speed sac outlet.

KibaAlpha I agree, Ashen Rider and Darien, King of Kjeldor could go. Gotta disagree on the Grand Abolisher , though. Lots of spellslingers and "nope" decks in my meta, and it has saved me the trouble of being hit with a counterspell or Maze of Ith . I like the idea of seeing Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite in there, and I have a Phyrexian Reclamation lying around. Burnished Hart is a good staple, and I need to get my hands on an Anguished Unmaking . Thanks for the tips!

I would do the following if I was building a deck around both abilities of Teysa Karlov .
Check out the creatures from Ravnica Allegiance with the "afterlife" trigger.
Add, Phyrexian Reclamation , Malevolent Awakening , Bontu's Monument , Burnished Hart , Knight of the White Orchid , Crypt Ghast , Anguished Unmaking , Generous Gift , Ethereal Absolution , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Having counters in a deck with Burning Inquiry seems ambitious. I’ll experiment with trimming Ilharg, the Raze-Boar and Ashen Rider for Pact of Negation . The other creatures are more important to OTKing, which we’ll want to be doing so as to not die to Pact.

So I got to playtest and play with a few of the changes I made last night.
First thing's first: Experimental Frenzy , Ghirapur Orrery , and Gauntlet of Power out on the field together is absolutely nuts. Also had a Madblind Mountain for when I hit my third land like 8 cards down. Absolutely swimming in mana. I wasn't expecting Experimental Frenzy to perform as well as it did, even if I didn't have the Gauntlet it would still have been potent. Damping Engine resoundingly out for Mana Web . Sure, it was nice having the Engine to slow my opponents down a tad, and sac a mountain so that I could just Crucible of Worlds it right back, but I really would have preferred the Web when playing against Baral, Chief of Compliance . I took out Mycosynth Lattice , Goblin Welder , Treasure Nabber , Hellkite Tyrant , and Spine of Ish Sah , and didn't feel their presence missing at all. Shared Animosity was immediately removed by Ashen Rider
How do you feel about Chandra, Torch of Defiance ? I also really want to make a spot for Goblin Wizard but my deck is really starting to compete for spots, I don't feel like there are any dead cards 99% of the time, and I probably don't need him anyway.

I recommend double-sleeving if you're using original dual. :-)
Also, I recommend removing:
Armageddon --> LOL, you just wanna [Armageddon + Teferi's Protection]
Temporal Mastery --> Temporal Manipulation is good enough.
Torrential Gearhulk --> You don't get much value from blinking this, unless you have reliable instant-speed blinks that I'm missing.
Jace, the Mind Sculptor : Maybe add more raw card advantage or filters to get rid of excess mana, instead? (But shoot, Jace is Jace, so there's that).
Brago, King Eternal : This is great, but requires both board state and combat dmg to really take advantage with it.
Spellseeker : I count 9 possible fetches. I don't think you get your value in. I would only keep this in if you're running the Dramatic Scepter combo.
Bolas's Citadel Give it a playtest. I think you might need a little more top deck matters, but your commander can help.
Spark Double NAS-TAY!
Oath of Kaya Spot removal/life gain.
Massacre Girl Board wipe on a permanent. You can always blink her the same turn to get the ball rolling. Also gets around indestructible.
Ashiok, Dream Render Stops opponents searches, mills, and can be reset by Aminatou
Deadeye Navigator gives you some evasion AND instant speed blinks.
Peregrine Drake why not?
Mystic Remora you can blink away the cumulative upkeep
Reflector Mage Bounce Removal
Disinformation Campaign : Double Card Advantage. Hits your opponents hand, and gives you a card.
Liliana, Dreadhorde General : This is a maybe. If you have aminatou when it hits the battlefield, you have potential of forcing players to sac 4 creatures that turn. Situational, but powerful. Probably have better stuff at the 6 drop.
Ashen Rider : Another maybe. Benefit of exiling ANY permenant is worth looking into. 8 CMC is harsh though.
