Doomed Traveler Discussion

Yeah the problem with mono-w decks that are slow is you are going to struggle losing tempo against faster decks and experienced players - by the time you get your big threats out, theyve already either killed you or are set up to kill you. Here is what I suggest -
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a must for any modern deck with alot of the same color. This can help you ramp substantially

This is what a deck built around Anointed Procession / Parallel Lives (and you need both to avoid extraction effects) would look like Anointed Procession - demo. You would use Fog or Ethereal Haze to stall your opponent and build counters on Luminarch Ascension or the planeswalkers Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar . You have cheap one drops that make tokens Doomed Traveler and Centaur's Herald . There is even a card that protects all your stuff Privileged Position and an incase of emergency Gather the Townsfolk . You have Adorned Pouncer and Honored Hydra in your sideboard because after the first game your opponent will remove any graveyard hate and add enchantment and planeswalker hate, what form this hate takes will depend on the deck you are playing against...
Decks which want to use tokens aren't tribal decks, in fact they rarely have creatures other than a few basics to keep them alive. My first demo deck, Procession of 9 Lives - Demo was essentially a tribal aggro deck, which is what your deck is at the moment. This new demo deck is an Anointed Procession deck, there isn't a cat to be seen in the main-deck and it plays very differently to your deck...

Im a big fan of mid-rangey mono color tribal decks, but here is some advice if you want to make it work more consistently and be generally more successful even in a very casual table top setting:
Curve in modern is king!
If you look at the curve for your deck and the average CMC in general, its very very high and its going to take several turns to even start getting your big angels out. This is an issue because at most you will be playing one threat per turn, and by turn 4 your control opponent will have more than enough mana and cards to stop them from hitting the board, your aggro opponents will have killed you, and faster mid range decks will have set up the board to a point where you are behind the rest of the game.
Solutions: Splash green for ramp ( Llanowar Elves , Birds of Paradise ) or find more cards in the 1 and 3 slots that are defensive. Current build is desperate for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Defensive/tax/solid cards in white you can use would be stuff like Leonin Arbiter , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Thraben Inspector , Doomed Traveler , Student of Warfare .
Interacting with your opponent is key!
Currently the only removal you have in your deck is Ixalan's Binding , which costs a large amount of mana considering it only removes a single target. Lucky for us we are playing white and have alot of great removal. Path to Exile , Fragmentize , Oblivion Ring . If I was playing this deck, my biggest fear would be my opponent would play something like Ensnaring Bridge because i'd only have a 32% chance of drawing Ixalan's Binding by turn 5 and thats spooky!
Hope this helps. tl;dr is I'd lower the average CMC, add more removal and ways to interact with the opponent

Doomed Traveler is always a good first turn- it can die as a chump blocker, and then you get a flying blocker as well with Spirit synergy! Kami of False Hope is great at any point to protect yourself.
I hope this helps! Let me know what you're thinking, I'd love to help more. :)

Wargru I had a similar comment on my reddit post, so I'm going to copy my response:
Not sure where you read this (I can see now that the misconception seems to be that Teysa says 'permanent'), but Teysa is the first card printed that uses the term “dying” in place of dies. While no rulings have been released about her yet, this likely means creatures are still permanents while dying, thus her ability works with cards with Afterlife and cards like Doomed Traveler. It seems odd to release Teysa with such an ability if it doesn’t combo with the Orzhov mechanic of the set (especially since her other ability does), therefore I’m working under the assumption that it does. If you’ve seen some official rulings released about her that confirm what you’re saying, I’d like to see them. Otherwise, only the release of the set will tell.
To quote BlazingRagnarok from his MTGSalvation comment:
"If that were true, death/leaves the battlefield triggers wouldn't work at all, since permanent abilities do not function outside of the battlefield unless another zone is specified. The game uses something called last known information to allow such triggers to function, which allows Teysa to double other creatures' death triggers. When afterlife triggers, last known information says the creatures with afterlife were permanents on the battlefield, so Teysa copies their triggers."

Yeah the original build had cards like Doomed Traveler, Voice of Resurgence and Hunted Witness. Still need to tinker with those ideas because then having something like Rally the Ancestors becomes a valuable card.

you can still use CoCo midrange just the backup of rally is too good. If you want a fun idea, but would require a different build. Can try tokens around Teysa Karlov. if i wanted to have fun with Teysa prob not competitive you could use Stitcher's Supplierstill. It mills 6. Also Tidehollow Sculler if you can play it and sac it you get them to remove 2 cards forever. Also double procs from your burn creatures could be fun. Don't forget creatures like Doomed Traveler are good cards that proc twice. If you want to play with the new Teysa try it without Elenda, the Dusk Rose and maybe 1x Athreos, God of Passage so your curve isnt so high and if you rally it wont cost as much
