Thanks for the +1 and the suggestion, I will add Painter servant in the main and Darkest Hour in the maybeboard.

Very unique deck idea, I like it. The only thing I can seem to think of is Painter's Servant . That plus Elephant Grass would disable all attacks. It would also however render Murkfiend Liege useless. If PS is too much, Darkest Hour does the same.

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.

Tree of Perdition and Transmutation won't work with how state based checks and the stack works. If the tree is dead you can't have it switch its toughness with a life total, similarly if it was moved to any other area of the game before the ability resolved. You can use things like Frogify if you cast it at instant speed, I think. I know an anthem effect to make it a 1/14 beforehand would be the best bet. Or something like Soul Separator should work.

The Wall of Shards + Tainted Remedy thing is definitely cute. I'll consider it but I can't see me justifying take anything out for those two cards. If I get an Exquisite Blood , I'll be putting it in my Vampire deck I'm building before this deck. I prefer to have solid things that can work without comboing off. The only really dead card in this deck is Darkest Hour and I mean dead as in, it doesn't do anything helpful outside of the combo.

I don't know how much you want but I'm going to recommend some cards as a Teysa, Orzhov Scion fan.

Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation is great in EDH to start the board over all over again. Merciless Eviction is something you should definitely keep in the deck by the way.

Anointed Procession is really good for doubling up on token effects. Requiem Angel and Field of Souls can be really nice too. Army of the Damned can provide a lot of bodies to work with. I've won with Army of the Damned and Maw of the Obzedat before. Storm Herd is an absolute beast too.

Two artifacts that you should consider are Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar . These can let you go infinite if you also get a Darkest Hour or a Painter's Servant . I have a Darkest Hour in mine, can't justify the price of the Painter's Servant yet. Either way both of those Altars are great with or without going infinite.

Illusionist's Bracers are great on Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Maw of the Obzedat should you include one as well. Three tokens to exile two creatures? Yes, please. In theory, if you have a Maw with the Bracers out and you Storm Herd at 40 life, you can sacrifice 5 of them and have 35 11/11 flying pegasus. Great card, I think it's underrated.

Also consider getting gravepact and/or Dictate of Erebos and maybe a Martyr's Bond too. You may not exile creatures with Teysa when they're out because of the way the stack works and if you sacrifice three creatures they'll sacrifice theirs before Teysa can exile it, but it's extremely good to keep your creatures out and have everyone else open.

Seraph of the Scales would make for a very solid addition since the Afterlife mechanic gives you white/black tokens, goes great w/ your commander.

Also -- although this deck seems relatively budget -- if you've got the coin, Painter's Servant can serve as another copy of Darkest Hour for the combo.
