Thanks for the feedback, I'm happy that you like my deck :D You are right about the lands. I'll look into more dual lands but unfortunately I can't add Marsh Flats ...because it costs too much money(Which is a shame because it would have been a great card to combo with Hidden Stockpile :( For the same reason it would be hard for me to add Bitterblossom . Maybe I'll put one in instead of one of my Athreos since they both cost a lot? While I do LOVE my 4x Gift of Immortality since they protect my key creatures while creating an immortal blocker that procs all my on-death effects(and its the card that made me want to make this deck xp )...I can't deny the power of Hidden Stockpile . Its ability to sacrifice my own tokens at will is great when fighting someone who knows what you're going for...Plus free tokens ^^ So ill trade a gift for a stockpile.

I was wondering...do I need to worry about drawing cards? If so, a Mentor of the Meek would do wonders here, but I really don't know what I would take out for it -_-' .

I was also thinking about replacing my 2x Tragic Slip with Grave Pact for unlimited removal. I know it costs 4...but it just seems so good...would that be a good move?

You could use more Faeries. Typically, you want to go for a minimum of 30 tribe members in a tribal EDH deck. You might also want Muddle the Mixture , Dimir Infiltrator , and Shred Memory to grab your Oona's Blackguard and Bitterblossom , seeing as the deck really ticks with those two cards in play. Along those lines, Notorious Throng and Knowledge Exploitation are also good. You also need more early-game ramp. Talisman of Dominance and Dimir Signet seem like givens.

As for what to cut, Cryptic Gateway doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It's a 5 mana artifact that lets you tap two creatures to play a card with a maximum CMC of 4. Likewise, I love Rite of Replication as a card, but what are you copying that's worth the mana? Followed Footsteps seems awfully mediocre, and Tree of Perdition doesn't seem to go great with a deck that's going to be slowly draining the opponents over a number of turns. You also seem to be pretty heavy on creature removal. Do you really need Cast Down, Doom Blade, Murder, Go For the Throat, Tragic Slip, and Imprisoned in the Moon with three Wraths and Control Magic?

This is a neat deck. I like it a lot. If you could afford it I recommend Godless Shrine and Marsh Flats if only to increase the consistency of your mana base, since I noticed quite a few of your cards are really color demanding. I almost want to say that Hidden Stockpile is good enough to be a 4 of, and if you get the fetches, they will trigger revolt for you :) if this change is made I would recommend cutting 1 copy of Gift of Immortality , and honestly I could see all 4 copies of Gift of Immortality being cut for a few of the other cards in your maybe board, most likely Bitterblossom since a free token every turn is fantastic and offers a secondary win con OR amazing chump blockers, and the life gain taken from Blood Artist negates the life loss all together. This is a really cool deck I think you did a great job.

Dimir House Guard and Fleshwrither are creatures that can both tutor for cards you need or be sacrificed for your benefit. Pitiless Plunderer is a nice creature that benefits from your creatures dying. Krav, the Unredeemed is another card that helps you sacrifice faeries from Bitterblossom . Rhystic Study is also a good card draw engine.

Amazing deck and presentation! Looks really pleasurable to pilot. I love all the synergies you've built between Haakon and Elenda.

Here comes a few suggestions I've in mind :

+1 btw!

I like this list. A lot. Going to build my own this weekend.

Bitterblossom , Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Ophiomancer for the cheap and repetitive token generation.

Flesh Carver fits great with Teysa. Speaking of... Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts ?

Entrapment Maneuver seems really good in this strategy.

Hour of Reckoning better than day of judgment.

Dark Depths , Gargoyle Castle and Kjeldoran Outpost land tokens.

Rebuff the Wicked and Imp's Mischief Orzhov strong blue effects

Well hello there Weiss ;P

It's always nice to see another Teysa Karlov deck, and the token route is definitely a fun one.

If you want any other ideas I also have my own deck: May We Never Part | Teysa Karlov EDH | PRIMER

I hope that this helps!

Hello I certainly don't mind giving some suggestions, I do see that you have received some excellent feedback already, but I will try to add what I can to this.

I figure this deck you're wanting to keep on the budget side am I correct in assuming? Regardless, I can see some areas where you can make significant improvement without spending too much $. The mana base is what i'm talking about here, I think you have a fine land count but what you can do is include some non-basics. Here are some to consider: Command Tower , Secluded Steppe , Orzhov Basilica , Temple of the False God , Myriad Landscape , Vault of the Archangel , Isolated Chapel , Temple of Silence , High Market , and Bojuka Bog . Of course there's others beyond this if you want to spend more like Cabal Coffers , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Godless Shrine , Marsh Flats , etc but these are obviously more expensive.

But yeah, your commander is a bit on the costly side, and you could do with some more ramp here. For one thing, with so many basic lands here I think you should consider adding Land Tax .

I would swap Harvester of Souls for Midnight Reaper .

Then, some other individual cards that I think would help here would be the following: Athreos, God of Passage (Was my first deck originally and is such a useful card here especially when paired with Teysa Karlov ), Emeria Shepherd , Bitterblossom , and Priest of Forgotten Gods .

I wish I could offer more but I must get back to studying. Whenever I can, I will try to suggest some cuts that you can make possibly for some of these suggestions. The lands should be an easy part however to decide. Well I hope that some of this is of use to you for now.
