Considering gravepact, replaced Read the Bones with Dark Prophecy for more synergy with sacrifice

Not a bad start. I do have a few suggestions for you and I'll try to keep things budget friendly (so no low hanging Teferi's Protection ).

Draw: Easily the most important thing in the deck. Drop your 1 time draw like Read the Bones and consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Twilight Prophet . I run all the permanents (Skullclamp and Champion of Dusk) but also have Necropotence and Herald's Horn .

Finishers: Door of Destinies does nothing for your current board, requires gas to essentially feed it afterwards, and it costs a lot for aggro. Consider Reconnaissance (2nd post just for this card) and Shared Animosity .

Board Protection: Rather than Unbreakable Formation, consider Boros Charm which protects all permanents. Scapegoat is also nice as it allows you to dodge hard to dodge wraths (-X-X, sac, exile, etc.). Granted Scapegoat's a little better if you run Purphoros, God of the Forge .

Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down, I can help suggest cuts. In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Not a bad start and good job keeping your avg. cmc. down on a budget. I do have a few suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.

FINISHERS: Coat of Arms helps everyone and can easily backfire. Door of Destinies does nothing for your current board, requires gas after to get it to do anything, and it costs a lot of mana in an aggro deck. Consider...

Shared Animosity - Self explanatory and gross.

Mirror Entity - Anthems and +1+1 counters are added on top of base P/T.

Reconnaissance - My favorite finisher here. It allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat. Drop Throne of the God-Pharoah if you add this... they're a severe nonbo together.

CARD DRAW: Drop your 1 time card draw like Read the Bones. I run all of the below cards, they're needed. Consider...

Dark Prophecy (and Necropotence if you have one), Skullclamp , Greed , Twilight Prophet , Champion of Dusk , and Herald's Horn .

I have several suggestions for you but this is a pretty good start.

Anthems-

Stromkirk Captain

Finishers- Coat of Arms helps everyone.

Shared Animosity

Reconnaissance - Allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.

Mirror Entity - Great mana sink... plus anthems and +1+1 counters are applied after.

Draw- This is probably the most important thing in this deck. I literally run all of the below cards plus what you run... it's needed.

Dark Prophecy

Necropotence

Greed

Herald's Horn

Twilight Prophet

Champion of Dusk

Anti-Wrath- 2nd most important category after draw.

Teferi's Protection

Scapegoat - helps you recover from hard to dodge wraths (exile, -X-X, sac, tuck, etc.) and get your eminence triggers again or with Purphoros you can bounce your board to finish everyone off outside of combat.

TDemers on No Time to Die Teysa [Primer]

Thanks for the suggestions KibaAlpha, much appreciated!

I decided not to run too many one-use spells like Dark Ritual , Bubbling Muck and Lotus Petal and keep the deck more midrange. I'll get a better feel for the need to add aggressive ramp after I get more playtesting under my belt.

I just removed Endless Cockroaches and Pious Evangel  Flip, will consider re-adding if I find myself missing having creatures to play/sac and/or more aristocrats.

Not a big fan of Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Malevolent Awakening , I struggle to see what I would remove in their place that would improve the deck.

Greed I like, I really hesitated removing Dark Prophecy as I am concerned it could easily kill me if I don't draw a Vindicate . ( Midnight Reaper is much better since I can simply sac him if needed).

I saw your Teysa deck when I was looking around for ideas early on, great work and thanks again.

You're severely lacking in repeatable draw. This commander has a tendency to blow though your hand pretty quickly. Consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , Herald's Horn , and Necropotence if it's in your budget.

Anti-wrath cards can also make a huge difference. Boros Charm and Scapegoat are your 2 best budget options but Teferi's Protection is your best option by far if you have one.

Got a few suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category.

Grixis Staple: Chaos Warp is Grixis' best answer to enchantments by far. Don't let problematic enchantments like Solemnity or Rest in Peace wreck your day.

Card Draw: Dark Prophecy , Necropotence , Rhystic Study , Midnight Reaper , and Skullclamp .
