Athreos, God of Passage
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to white and black is less than seven, Athreos isn't a creature.
When another creature you own dies, return it to your hand unless target opponent pays three life.

Planar Void : It is important to run graveyard hate in (almost) every deck in EDH in my opinion because of how frequently and effectively many decks in the format lean towards abusing it. This deck does have other ways to deal with graveyards with Scavenger Grounds and Bojuka Bog , but those are one shot effects and in my meta I require something that sticks around a bit more.
The nice thing about Planar Void is that it triggers on something going to the graveyard which gives me the opportunity to stack other triggers and abilities as I desire. You mention Athreos, God of Passage ; that ability would still trigger allowing you to force an opponent to either take 3 damage from something dying or returning it to your hand before the Planar Void trigger resolves.
Other things it synergises well with are Blood Artist and Phyrexian Reclamation . Blood Artist allows you to still see death triggers from other creatures dying and Phyrexian Reclamation allows you to return creatures you control to your hand while the Void trigger is on the stack.

So a few questions concerning Teysa Karlov , Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Athreos, God of Passage . First does athreos's effect qualify as a creature dying effect, meaning does a player have to spend 6 life or let me put the creature back into my hand? Secondly, if I put the creature into my hand with athreos, does it still die for teysa, orzhov scion's effect (or similar death effects)

WanderingSpirit I have looked at those cards before, but for another deck I made! I created a Vorel of the Hull Clade deck recently, looking at cloning my creatures and the likes with similar tactics.

Sorry for the spam, but I just realised that with Teysa Karlov ; Athreos, God of Passage would trigger twice, making to where your opponent(s) would have to pay a total of 6 life to not have your creatures return to your hand when they die. Just some more synergy than I initially realized.

A solid start with plenty of room for improvement.
I would drop Athreos, God of Passage . He can only potentially recur creatures at the time they die.
My personal fave for creature recur is Life Line.
Considering dropping Temple of the False God . Early game it only hinders you. There are better choices.
There are more ways to improve I can share but heading back to work now. Later today perhaps.

yooo this is just the kind of chaos-hug I want to see!
I've been sitting on a Karona, but I didn't know what to do with her... like, have you ever put her down and the table decides to name "Avatar" and 3-shot someone(you)?
Is the enchantress theme doing what you want? I'm thinking about more creature stuff. Random things like Boldwyr Heavyweights and the Hunted series seem fun.
Oh Wild Research .
If you have lands worth playing, Pir's Whim feels good.
Missing Akroma, Angel of Wrath for the lore flex.
