you might want Black Market for ramp and Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact to ensure your opponents don't have creatures.

Gotcha, if Black Market is a meta call then by all means.

Black Market fits the meta of my playgroup. We have two guys that play lots and lots of tokens ie Prossh, Skyraider of Kher. but for the sake of generality It's not a bad drop. I've been on the fence about Core Prowler and I think you are absolutely right

Considering it's a 4-color deck, I don't think it's realistic to think you could consistently cast Phyrexian Obliterator. Relying on Chromatic Lantern to be able to cast it just isn't good imo.

As for what to take out...I'm not a huge fan of Black Market, as I feel it would be too hard to get value from it. Also, Contagion Engine seems like a strict upgrade to Core Prowler. Other than that, I would probably just take out some of the weaker infect creatures if you wanted to add other cards.

Have you considered Bravado and/or Betrothed of Fire? Could work very well as additional power boosts for your commander in addition to his ability. Beyond that, I can't recommend Rancor highly enough ;) have you considered Black Market for the mana ramp here?

I can tell just by looking at this briefly that this build has been improved over time as it looks very refined. As I am not experienced with this commander, take my comments with a grain of salt as you are more of the expert here.

I wonder if you could make use of more token producers - specifically ones that make at least 3 1/1 creatures at a time in order to use Teysa's first ability on demand if she's the only creature in play. Cards that come to mind include: Sengir Autocrat, Benevolent Offering, Increasing Devotion, Entrapment Maneuver, Spectral Procession, Martial Coup.

I think you could explore morbid a little more, some cool ones include Skirsdag High Priest, Reaper from the Abyss, Tragic Slip. Tragic Slip could improve your mana curve by replacing Murder.

I think more card draw effects would be nice. I'm very surprised to not see Mentor of the Meek in here. I would argue that Read the Bones is strictly better than Painful Lesson. But overall I would consider adding a few more, some that come to mind that play well are: Damnable Pact, Skeletal Scrying, Blood Divination, Altar's Reap, Ancient Craving.

I think you could use more mana ramp. Besides mana rocks, you could take advantage of treasures with cards like Pitiless Plunderer.

Not sure if you've thought about focusing on strong cards that care about low CMC. Besides Mentor of the Meek, other cool cards could be added (some would even interact with Teysa): Unearth, Sun Titan, Reveillark, Citywide Bust.

Fun cards that come to mind that you could add:

Lastly, a few cards I think could possibility be cut for any of the above (I am often eager to cut high CMC cards btw):

  • Treasury Thrull - a good effect I'll admit, but I'm just not thrilled with the 6 CMC. If reviving creatures is your main goal, something like a Hell's Caretaker's effect for less mana might be better.
  • Voldaren Pariah  Flip - at her cmc with that effect, I think I'd rather run a board wipe instead
  • Vizkopa Confessor - looks like a fun card, but I don't like the CMC.
  • Profane Command - I don't know that this should be cut, but I'd encourage you to really ask yourself which modes you typically use because you might be able to get a card with the desired mode for less mana. If X spells are a way for you close out the game, you could consider Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire.
  • Tamiyo's Journal - looks like a fun card, but idk about the cmc, requires a long game before providing lots of value.
  • Tainted Sigil - I've never seen this card before, does it pay off well? I just don't like that people can see it on the board.

Overall, very impression decklist - glad you rebuilt it. Eager to face it next week.

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!
