Doomed Traveler Discussion

Hey, you've optimized well for your first Commander deck. Can take it even further though to reduce the avg. CMC which is high at 3.4. Get this into 2.5 or less territory.
Cards to consider adding:
- Viscera Seer : sac outlet.
- Carrion Feeder : sac outlet.
- Dark Ritual : ramp.
- Doomed Traveler : good interaction with Teysa and Skullclamp.
- Phyrexian Reclamation : creature recursion.
- Talisman of Hierarchy : ramp.
- Orzhov Signet : ramp.
- Tithe Taker : good interaction with Teysa and Skullclamp.
- Ash Barrens
Cards to consider cutting:
- Scoured Barrens
- Field of Souls
- Burnished Hart
- Ashen Rider
- Twilight Drover
- Open the Graves
- Pious Evangel
- Smothering Abomination
- Martial Coup
Without having a way to consistently get Rider into your graveyard and more reanimation Rider is too much mana. Hart is too slow of ramp and it doesn't trigger Teysa when it sacs itself. Coup, Open, Field, Drover, Abomination and Evangel are too slow and there's better five, four, three drops here.
Good luck with your deck.

Each one would only get you one trigger.
When Doomed Traveler dies, its ability triggers. Because a creature dying triggered the ability, Teysa Karlov 's ability causes that ability to trigger a second time. Copying the triggered ability with Strionic Resonator isn't causing any additional triggering, just duplicating the triggered ability, so it won't implicate Teysa's ability again.
Basically the way Teysa and Resonator are worded, they are each worth +1 copy of the triggered ability.

If I have Teysa Karlov and Strionic Resonator in play and a Doomed Traveler in play and the traveler dies, can I use the resonator to copy the ability, allowing teysa to copy both triggers, or would each one only get me 1 trigger

I don't know who you play against, how it goes, or how the deck really performs so I can't really say. My initial thoughts point at
Raise the Alarm
I also noticed Costly Plunder as something I'd replace but specifically for its place I'd put in a Necropotence . For the creatures I suggested Imperious Oligarch , Seraph of the Scales , Doomed Traveler and whatnot are things I immediately notice. Karlov isn't guaranteed to be out. Afterlife is nice and all but it only goes so far when you could get something else like control out of those three I mentioned. I don't know how well afterlife pays off for you though, I haven't messed with it in my EDH yet. More tokens are always nice but I feel like there are better options than most afterlife creatures. I was hoping for better afterlife from Ravnica Allegiance.

hey, Endrobot! you asked me to come up with some cuts for the deck in return for upvotes, so here I am! hmm tough decisions here.. theyre all very synergistic, but I'll do what i can to the best of my ability. Reassembling Skeleton works well because you can sac,bring back and repeat as long as you have the mana but he doesn't have a death trigger. Hunted Witness , Doomed Dissenter , Doomed Traveler , Imperious Oligarch & Orzhov Enforcer are great low cmc creatures that synergize really well with teysa, but maybe theyre just not inpactful enough for EDH? i dont know you dont want to cut too many low cards. Plus, they all make tokens when they die and with teysa out, they make double tokens, with lifelink and vigilance so maybe just a few of those? maybe Batwing Brume ? its a cool effect and i see the synergy but i would put in a Path to Exile instead? Smothering Abomination works well too, and card-draw is essential. but his ability doesn't double trigger with teysa. plus, it seems like you have plenty of draw. Pitiless Plunderer is good..good ramp..but if youre gonna run him id throw in a Revel in Riches as an alternate win-con. but what Kiba said: it is better at flash speed. a Vedalken Orrery would be great if it wasnt $30. i only own one now im considering putting it in my teysa build instead of my new chainer deck. hmm more cuts more cuts... if youre gonna keep your deck low to the ground and not take out all of those two drops like i said (which cutting low cmc cards may be a bad idea, i'll admit) then you could afford to cut a couple lands? you have ramp with Solemn, the hart, all the rocks and the plunderer. it shouldnt be too bad cutting at least one or two lands. especially with the new mull rule. Sorry. I'm all over the place with my suggestions. I certainly hope I was atleast some help. Please let me know what you end up doing! im curious now. and i like what you got here, btw. +1 from me!

Hey, think about how you can get more value out of Teysa with the token strategy?
I'll give you four card examples within the budget to mull over:
- Doomed Traveler : dies ability.
- Ministrant of Obligation : dies ability.
- Luminarch Ascension : repeatable source of tokens.
- Spawning Pit : sac outlet, repeatable source of tokens.
I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

I really want to get some Priest of the Forgotten Gods for the deck. I’ve considered Judith, the Scourge Diva and Cruel Celebrant but initially dismissed the life drain effect since I like be more aggressive with cards like Falkenrath Aristocrat . I’ll definitely look into getting a few copies of them both.
I thought about using Fatal Push , but for my playgroup meta Tragic Slip is going to more effective against my groups Dino and indestructible focused decks. Spark Harvest replaced Bone Splinters since my playgroup uses a lot of planeswalkers. Dreadbore could be good so I’ll keep an eye out for those as well. My main goal is to get two more copies of Falkenrath Aristocrat and focus on sacrificing the humans like Doomed Traveler and Hunted Witness . Seraph of the Scales is awesome, but is also out of my budget. I like having Martyr of Dusk just in case my opponent has a way around Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet ’s zombie engine and it’s saved me a few times. Same with Shamble Back but I am looking for a better alternative since I don’t always have a creature ready to exile for it.
Thank you for the recommendations!
