Darkest Hour turns all your creatures into black creatures including Teysa's tokens so you can infinitely loop token sacrifices

Are you that guy that plays Darkest Hour? You should be.

That's exactly right. However, right now your deck is labeled Standard on the website. You can fix this by clicking edit, then changing the format. If you are looking for removal, then in black you can go with Dismember, which you can reliably cast for 1 cmc. At two cmc, I am a big fan of playing a mix of Go for the Throat and Victim of Night (although with your split you may find Victim tough to cast on turn two). White gives you access to some of the best removal in modern with Path to Exile. May I also recommend Spawning Pit. It gives you a chance to go infinite combo with Darkest Hour, Blood Artist, Tesya and any other black creature the moment it goes down. Killing Wave could also be fun. As far as card draw goes Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, and Dark Confidant are all options (the confidant would also give you a black creature to sacrifice, and would probably do much better for you than Doomed Dissenter). Unfortunately these all add to your price tag as well. Either way, this looks like a fun deck when it goes off! You'll have to let me know how it ends up playing.

Probably the most expensive EDH deck I've seen overall.

But I do love the list after only reading a few cards. I like the fact that it's not combo. Teysa was my first "competitive" build with every other card being a combo piece and that's kind of why I stopped playing her. BUT, I'm thinking of rebuilding her :)

I'm really curious how Darkest Hour interacts with Divine Visitation since both are basically replacement effects, hmm

*Even though I've read that Darkest Hour is a continuous effect? Idk. I just started reading about the layer system and I'm no judge lol

Anyway, Nice List!

SynergyBuild on tuvasa Tier?

No I don't play Tiny Leaders, well, I tried it, but took the deck apart because apparently using all of black and whites tutors to find Darkest Hour and Blasting Station in my Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck was okay, but when I found out how to build a tiny leaders varient of Hermit Druid, no one wanted to play against me.

Here is how it works, Hermit Druid your deck into your yard, and flashback Memory's Journey, hitting Yawgmoth's Will. I usually also hit Gitaxian Probe too. If you have a lot of mana, you can even flashback Think Twice to draw a card, however I normally mill myself out and flashback Journey on upkeep so I don't care.

Cast Yawgmoth's Will, and start storming off from the yard, with Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, and all of the efficient mana rocks that net mana. Then cast any number of combos. I usually go for Regrowthing back a Dramatic Reversal, casting Isochron Scepter from the yard, imprinting it, making infinite mana, casting Laboratory Maniac from the yard, casting my commander (Thrasios, Triton Hero, with Tymna the Weaver as the partner), and drawing to win.

The deck obviously could win with just IsoRev combo, with the commander, and won averagely turn 3. With all of the tutors and ramp legal, without Force of Will for my opponents to respond as easily (with Swan Song, Flusterstorm, Spell Pierce, Counterspell, Pact of Negation they can, but not as easily), the format dulled to a cEDH format with less interaction. Really sucked too, because it had so much promise.

That was back when I played around 4 years ago. I started ~5 years ago, but stopped 3 years ago. Started back up in late Amonkhet where I saw a booster box (or bundle?) in a store and remembered it. Got back in and though I sold my standard playabled, ended up that a lot of my other cards were great in commander, like Serra's Sanctum and Earthcraft, which I thought were only cool little tid-bits of MTG history at the time.

Neotrup on How soon do static effects ...

4 months ago

For an example of a static ability, lets say Darkest Hour and Crovax, Ascendant Hero enter the battlefield at the same time, possibly as the result of a Genesis Wave. Crovax's ability immediately starts apply to himself (as he isn't white), making him a 3/3. There is no period of time in which he's a 4/4, so Kavu Lair would not trigger off him entering.
