tcooke2 What if I take out Sadistic Hypnotist and put in Cartel Aristocrat for just a strictly cheaper sac outlet.

Then take out Satyr Wayfinder for Felidar Guardian as an additional means to combo and an additional 4 cost creature (a surprise tool that will come in handy later)

I can take out Qasali Pridemage for Birthing Pod as an extra reusable tutor (especially fun with any line that includes Felidar Guardian because it allows you to fetch and sacrifice the Felidar Guardian on the same turn.

But as for Body Snatcher, I'm not sure what I should take out

Emeria Shepherd, Bounty Agent, Righteous Aura. Ethereal Absolution and Increasing Devotion seem like cut-able cards. i would also try to fit in Hanweir Garrison. and if you add in a Cartel Aristocrat or Viscera Seer you have an infinite combo with Sun Titan + Fiend Hunter

Other 2-drop creatures in place of Shanna that you could consider:

Humans for human tribal:
- Precinct Captain
- Cartel Aristocrat
- Chief of the Edge (Hero is a Warrior)

Strong Abzan 2-drops:
- Fleecemane Lion - Bronzehide Lion - Grim Flayer

Token Value: - Imperious Oligarch
- Corpse Knight

A few overlap, e.g. Grim Flayer and Imperious Oligarch are also human. Of this list, I think three really stand out: Grim Flayer fits both of your strategies (multicolor and human), but I'm not sure you'll ever get delirium. Fleecemane Lion isn't a human, but it is multicolor and it's the traditional strongest 2-drop in Abzan. And Corpse Knight, which isn't human but works extremely well with Hero because it doesn't specify nontoken.

I'd go with Corpse Knight if you want to stick to a 2-of, but Fleecemane Lion would make an extremely powerful 4-of.

Hey, this is a very cheap deck. Are you not able to spend a little more? A $20 upgrade could really help your deck.

Even though have a low budget to work with there's still several upgrades you could make. Some upgrades to consider are to take more advantage of Teysa's ability to give you additional die triggers when a creature dies.

Good budget cards, $1 or less each, to consider adding:

I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.

dusterGGG I like Pitiless Pontiff because it offers deathtouch alongside functional indestructibility, but you may be right, in my playtests lack of that one mana when I have putted something like Teysa Karlov or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord on turn 4 often meant that I couldn't use Pontiff when I really would like too, and since Cartel Aristocrat can also work almost infinitely with Cruel Celebrant I guess it's a better one here, since I already have Orzhov Enforcer to take down big creatures. I will probably get it with my next order on cardkingdom and than I'll update this deck, thanks. As of Yahenni, Undying Partisan , I don't really need attackers in this deck since I can either overflow opponent with spirits or just drain him with Cruel Celebrant and I prefer 2 CMC over 3. So I guess Cartel Aristocrat it is.

Consider Cartel Aristocrat over Pitiless Pontiff . Free sac engines are almost always better than ones that cost mana, and protection will also let you swing with it if you want. Yahenni, Undying Partisan is another good sac engine with high survivability that can also be a good attacker.

A cheap removal spell in this deck would be a Bone Splinters this of course depends on your meta.

Falkenrath Noble is another good card that also punishes other players who try to set up their sac engine and moves you toward your goal of winning.

I know it is a little pricier at $2ish but a Swords to Plowshares will be invaluable at keeping you alive.

I like Kambal, Consul of Allocation I didn't even know about that card. It doesn't synergize as much with the deck (except for it being a two power card) but it is a nice deterrent.

I dislike Ankle Shanker in this deck because his deathtouch/first strike ability don't trigger when you bring him onto the battlefield from the graveyard tapped and attacking. Which is a HUGE bummer.

I want to get the Archetype of Finality for my deck as well that is pure value in Alesha.

Overall I like it, you have all of the essentials in here. The biggest thing that I notice though is that you don't seem to have that many sacrifice outlets for this deck to get your infinite Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit + Murderous Redcap combo off. I'd recommend Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar but those are pricey af and I can only recommend if you REALLY like this deck. But there are plenty of cheap ones that I run!

Bloodflow Connoisseur

Bloodthrone Vampire

Cartel Aristocrat

Dark Privilege

All of the above are under a dollar in price and able to get that sac engine up and running for you.

Anyway I know this was a lot but I hope that it helps you have a good deck here. Enjoy it!

Have you thought about Painter's Servant / Darkest Hour to combo with Teysa, Orzhov Scion .

Or Blasting Station / Cartel Aristocrat / Carrion Feeder as free repeatable sac outlets.

Nim Deathmantle also combos real nice with Ashnod's Altar. Karmic Guide plus Reveillark also make for a fantastic Infinite loop for you Blood Artist effects plus the ability for standalone utility as recursion pieces.

Altar of the Brood makes for a low cmc finisher for infinite loops as well.

In general I strongly recommend lowering your average cmc to present more early game relevance.

Also a couple specific Planeswalkers help with a backup plan when primary combo fails and you gotta go token beatdown.

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar immediate ult, buffing all dudes and impossible to remove.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad again immediate emblem buff.

Ajani, Strength of the Pride that 0 ability ult is easily obtainable and puts us in a prime position to win.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion board wipe, massive token producer, and back-breaking ult with token swarm.

Thumbs up and an upvote for the Primer.
