Dark Petition Discussion
1 day ago
Talisman of Dominance seems real loose, same with Diabolic Revelation. I think Chromatic Sphere and Dark Petition might be more efficient for you, even in big mana decks. DR seems too win-more and slow, and with all the super fast aggro makes talisman really shaky. Thoughtseize eventually will be better in the side too.

These kinds of decks are good metagame answers to midrange beatdown decks. You'd be out of luck if the opponent plays something with hexproof, or protection from colored spells or has ways to protect their critters. I don't know what to do about that, except maybe Fleshbag Marauder, since if it's your only creature you can fling it in response to its ability.
Also, if the opponent is playing a creatureless combo, you're kind of out of luck. I really feel like you'd need something to do if the enemy doesn't have any creatures you can control. You need creatures that don't mind being flung at the enemy. Why does the horribly unplayable Kathari Bomber come to mind? We need better suggestions.
It seems like you'd need some ramp to make your spells really worthwhile: you'd need 5 mana to cast a Mark of Mutiny and Altar's Reap which is more or less just a Slave of Bolas or a cheap entwined Grab the Reins. Sure, you have Expertise and the cheap one, but you're still looking at turn 3 minimum.
Now...Blood Funnel might be the weirdest thought I've had all day. Pair it with Bloodghast, Prized Amalgam and others, so all your spells get to be cheap, but, more importantly It gives you a way to sacrifice their critters. Imagine you cast a Dark Petition to get a Languish or other toolbox spell, and you can cast it immediately (provided you have the bodies to sac for it). Alternatively, you run permanents that make tokens like Bitterblossom, but I'm just brainstorming.
This would give you things to do while you take control of their critters. There are tons of possibilities with Blood Funnel, since it makes every spell is also a potential sacrifice outlet. And, you'd want the revolving door graveyard for your sacrifice stuff. I don't know how many of these ideas are any good.
If nothing else Miren, the Moaning Well as a one-of land.

A few tidbits starting with a golden rule: Don't play Tibalt. He is a waste of space in the deck. for what you are doing with this deck you will want planeswalkers that can help you set up your commander some as well as help get the deck flowing/ make blockers. Jace, Unraveler of Secrets is good if you cant afford Jace, the Mind Sculptor. Chandra, Flamecaller for draw and tokens. Ob Nixilis Reignited for card draw and creature hate.
A lot of your counterspells ar every situational and seem like they would be dead in your hand a lot of the time. You may want to scrap most of them for some more reliable kill spells. Scour from Existence, Hero's Downfall, Go for the Throat etc. would be good.
Drastic Revelation is aweful, aweful, and more aweful. It hurts you more than you may think unles syou benefit heavily on discard. You'd rather get a Phyrexian Arena, Staff of Nin, or even a Wheel of Fate / Wheel of Fortune *for budgetless people.
We could get into tutors but the only budget oen worth anything in commander is Dark Petition so start there.

Zholto Thanks for the tip! I was looking at it, and seeing what I could fetch up with Dark Petition... Turns out, you're right. 5 mana is a bit much for a tutor, even if I get 3 of it back, mostly because the BBB restriction on it means I can barely cast anything that I tutor up with it. Probably going to be replacing it with Putrefy so I can have some main-deck artifact hate and creature removal.

Always a fan of Thragtusk. Shame doesnt see more modern play. Dark Petition Just doesnt seem that great. Really slow, and most of your cards that would be important to use are over the 3 mana is refunds back in my opinion. I havent played tested this out, but I like the unique idea. +1

I was resolved not to comment on this deck, because I play Teysa IRL, and I'm certain I have enormous biases about how Teysa can and should be played (The fact that you're not running the Teysa + Nether Traitor + Phyrexian Altar infinite mana combo hurts me.), but I think I need to drop by just to give you this recommendation:
Until Raz gets banned, he's basically a must-include in this deck. Here's why.
First tutor: Darkest Hour. Play Darkest Hour. Tutor for every card you desire. Win.
The fact that he's a tutor and a sac outlet is just beautiful.
That said, I fully expect him to get banned in six months, so don't get attached. But so long as he's available and you're the face of Teysa combo, you should have him in here.
Also, just general advice. I don't think think the 0-drop creatures help you very much. When you had Attrition and Mind Slash in here there was an okay chance of them being helpful, but now the only value you get off of them is if you happen to have Phyrexian or Ashnod's to turn them into mana. There's enough here already that you're likely to always have a creature to go off with Teysa.
I'd cut all four for Raz, Bloodghast, Nether Traitor, and Skullclamp. (Skullclamp is the super important one here, since it's draw, which you need; it combos with any infinite mana sac loop to draw your deck, thereby acting as extra wincon; and it turns Doomsday actually viable as opposed just a really risky tutor for Darkest Hour.
You also have enough instants and sorceries that Dark Petition is probably better than Diabolic Tutor.

Lim-Dul's Vault is a great cheap tutor. Also Dark Petition and Beseech the Queen. I would take out Everflowing Chalice and Chromatic Lantern rocks that cost 3 and produce 1 are super slow. Add Talisman of Dominance Talisman of Progress and Fellwar Stone at minimum. Other good choices that are cheap are Mind Stone or Prismatic Lens.
