Darkest Hour Discussion

Im guessing you're intentionally staying away from the Darkest Hour combo? If so, good for you, it's a fun new take. Personally, I love the combos though.

I've been testing a deck similar to this for a while. My thoughts:

Green Sun's Zenith is pretty bad. Okay, it's a 8 mana Protean Hulk that increases your chance to draw it, but imo 8 mana is too much and I mainly played Hulk with some reanimation spells. I would definitely add more reanimation spells (or just choose Natural Order over it), such as Dance of the Dead or Necromancy, which were mentioned in earlier comments.

Boonweaver Giant is must-in, because it's a one-card-instant-win, honestly. You just need ANY sacrifice card (and you use 4 of them iirc). If you are lucky enough, you can set a 2nd turn kill (even 1st, if your hand is perfect). Of course, if you choose to play Giant, you need more reanimation spells.

I added one more combo to my deck - Teysa, Orzhov Scion + Darkest Hour + Blasting Station. You have several tutors for artifacts/enchantments so this combo should be pretty good.

The rest of the deck is really cool!

Blasting Station is infinite damage with Darkest Hour and teysa.

Love how the only win condition is the 13 life one I too am looking to make a troll zur deck. Some of my combos areDarkest Hour and Absolute Grace
Intruder Alarm and Season of the Witch and Indestructibility
Mana Vortex and Oath of Lieges

vegaslights I like the Aetherworks Marvel idea, but as told by my LGS judge, Darkest Hour states that all creatures are Black, so you cannot sac them into Teysa's first ability, however, when you do sac them they make 1/1 white spirits that become 1/1 black spirits due to Darkest Hour.

As much as I like the combo between Archangel of Thune, my deck is very centred around having expendable minions that you can sac into Teysa's first ability so that you can hold control over the board.

I have a Teysa deck too!:Midst of Winter (Teysa EDH)I love it. I have had it for a few years so I have tweaked it mostly to my meta but here are some super performers I didn't see on your list that have been in mine before:

Ashnod's Altar CAN NOT recommend enough. Aetherworks Marvel Two Teysa activations is easier than you think. Blasting Station Piece 1. Darkest Hour Piece 2. Archangel of Thune While not in my build, yours is more life-gain-y so she is a valid use of 20 dollars.

Dictate of Erebos Two are better than one.

All the Best with keeping your friends form having creatures!

Neotrup on Question concerning a a cards ...

A card's color is normally determined by it's casting cost. Any black symbol in the casting cost, such as in Olivia, Mobilized for War's cost (she's black-red), will normally make a card black. If a card has a color indicator located left of the type line, like Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip, it uses that to determine color instead (he's black). If a card has an ability that redefines it's color, like Bearer of Silence, it uses that to determine color (it's colorless). If an ability of a spell or permanent redefines color, like Rise from the Grave or Darkest Hour, that color is used instead of or in addition to the color(s) of the card. Rise from the Grave would make Thada Adel, Acquisitor blue-black, Darkest Hour would make all creatures on both sides of the field just black.

Thanx for your comment, CaptSillva.

I'm well aware of Darkest Hour power level in Teysa, but I am trying to keep this deck from going infinite (due to my playgroup, and the ammount of my other combo-EDH decks) and leave it more creature-based (occasionally Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle do combo off, but it's not the main win con.)

Divinity of Pride, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Serra Ascendant - those are nice fatties, probably will replace Abyssal Persecutor with one of those.

Ranger of Eos is great suggestion. I wonder how i missed that one. Will try to get him ASAP.

Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant - they are nice human tribal cards, but I do not think they are what I am looking for. Champion of the Parish is too slow for a fatty, and Thalia's Lieutenant has some dissynergy with Skullclamp
