Deathgreeter Discussion

Seems pretty solid. If you add Deathgreeter it can do some really silly stuff with Archangel of Thune and Teysa.

Useful death triggers: Blood Artist , Kalastria Healer , and Zulaport Cutthroat are basically Falkenrath Noble . Vindictive Vampire is another similar effect that may work for you. Deathgreeter , Grim Haruspex , Abyssal Gatekeeper , and Midnight Reaper also have nice interactions with all the death triggers.

I noticed Dictate of Erebos you can also try Grave Pact

Wake the Dead is an instant speed mass graveyard recursion that allows you to abuse all those death triggers again.

I think Nether Traitor is a must in an aristocrat deck. Maybe you could also give Dark Prophecy a shot since it doesn't require the creatures to be non-tokens like Grim Haruspex does. With how much lifegain you're currently running, I wouldn't be too worried about the downside. If it really is worrisome, maybe throw Deathgreeter .

Other cards I'd consider are Smothering Abomination as well as Ophiomancer . Considering how Ophiomancer is written, you basically grant Yahenni indestructible permanently all the while keeping a 1/1 deathtouch chump blocker.

As for your other concerns in letting Yahenni hit your opponents, I'd recommend Whispersilk Cloak , Hot Soup , Suspicious Bookcase , Trailblazer's Boots and Loxodon Warhammer (I'd assume your Yahenni gets huge so it being blocked no longer becomes an issue, + massive lifegain is always fun).

Then again, equipments make for a more voltron based Yahenni, which is not what you're trying to do. Either way, thought I'd share :)

Have fun !

Mausoleum Secrets is great. You can easily get a bunch of creatures in your graveyard for this spell because they come back anyway. Desecrated Tomb works well with your commander. Deathgreeter likes it when things die.

Bone Shredder kills himself off with echo while continuously killing off other creatures. Eliminate the Competition and Malicious Affliction also give you more kill spells.

And why not? You can use Meekstone , too.

I like that interaction between Old Teysa and Twilight Drover . I'm definitely going to put old Teysa in in place of Blistergrub . I'll probably drop Pitiless Plunderer for the rites. Twilight Drover is going on the maybeboard. I'd like to get Athreos and Deathgreeter in the deck first. I appreciate the feedback. It helps a lot to look over a list with a different perspective.

Generally your card selection here is at too high a mana cost, no 1 mana spells is a big deal, especially when, off the top of my head; Viscera Seer , Mortician Beetle , Deathgreeter , Quest for the Gravelord and Thoughtpicker Witch all exist. Modern is a fast format, spells which cost 4 or more mana need to have significant impact to be playable, spells that cost less need to be the most efficient version. For example, you might think that these three cards would be ordered in playability thus: Murder > Victim of Night > Fatal Push , the opposite is actually true Fatal Push is the best of the 3, it is one of the best removal spells in Modern... In a deck focused on sacrifice though Tragic Slip is also a good choice.

Cards like Grim Haruspex , Skirsdag High Priest and Bone Picker are ideal for this sort of deck as you net an additional benefit from the sacrifice. A card like Scavenger Drake can't be played until turn 4, Mortician Beetle is potentially there on turn 1. If you want a finisher in this sort of deck Demon of Death's Gate would be a classic option. Cards which can return themselves also have value Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton would be examples.

Try to organise the deck so that you have more 1 drops, than 2, more 2 than 3 etc, keep in mind though that functionally Bone Picker should be a 1 drop in your deck, so there is a little wiggle room. I hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

Xynarth on Queen of the Orzhov [[Teysa Karlov Combo Build]]

BlueBat93 I think it's the right call to remove the lifegain aspect, since there are no double triggers on them.

If ever you go that route again, I would recommend Deathgreeter instead, and Moonlit Wake.

As for Blood Artist, he's alright. But even with Teysa, you 'only' target two players. It could still be good though with the right engine on the board.

Some more cards I think are interesting:

Mana: Black Market (absolute must, I find), Pawn of Ulamog (non-token though..)

Token generators: Flesh Carver, Hangarback Walker, Lightning Coils, Ogre Slumlord, Requiem Angel, Hallowed Spiritkeeper, Spawning Pit (sac outlet that allows you to rebuild somewhat)

I mostly highlighted the generate X tokens since you'll be doubling your token generation. If put alongside Anointed Procession, you're quadrupling your creature count.

Recursion: Gift of Immortality. Cauldron of Souls, Nether Traitor (another Reassembling Skeleton almost), Mimic Vat (allows you to disrupt your opponents as well as enables some shenanigans on your own board), Lifeline (another must, I find, considering your deck prioritizes things dying as much as possible)

Card advantage: Jar of Eyeballs, Gate to the Afterlife, Inheritance

The 'must-adds' in my book are Black Market, Nether Traitor, Gift of Immortality and Lifeline though. The rest are food for thought mostly :)

Hope you're having fun, Aristocrats is always hilarious fun to play ^__^

Rather than Stitcher's Supplier and a whole bunch of Rally the Ancestors why not play Perilous Myr, Deathgreeter, Festering Mummy, Tenacious Dead, Doomed Dissenter, Relentless Dead, Gravecrawler, Bloodghast, or Dread Wanderer. These all allow for more of an "aristocrats strategy" rather than a reanimator-esque strategy. Repeatable affects or payoffs for sacrificing creatures is what you want in aristocrats. Stitcher's Supplier is better in decks like bridgevine or Dredge
