Doomed Traveler Discussion

Eloniel Lurrus is alright, but I don't think any of the CMC < 2 permanents in the deck are worth recurring only once per turn. I already have Phyrexian Reclamation and the Reassembling Skeleton which do a better job. Massacre Wurm is still in the combos since unfortunately, right now I can't edit the description. Every time I save a new description, the editor deletes half of it. I've been waiting to see if it fixes itself, but it hasn't yet, so eventually, I'll have to get the admins' attention. I like Hell's Caretaker but it seems very slow and costly. Cards like that die quickly in my meta, and I don't like playing such slow cards.
sub780lime Personally, I like 1-drop fodder like Garrison Cat more than 2-drops like Tithe Taker. The extra abilities tacked onto two drop fodder don't interest me compared to the tokens they make on death. Since I'm mainly aiming for the tokens, I'd rather them be 1 less mana. That being said, I don't think I'll include the cat since Hunted Witness and Doomed Traveler have been enough.

Everyone's deck will vary depending on their own financial situation but you are welcome.
Your creature base can be improved. As a rule of thumb for creatures generating tokens creatures with a CMC of 1-2 create one token and creatures with a CMC of 2-4 create 2 tokens.
A Planeswalker that is just made for a deck like this is Liliana, Dreadhorde General.

Garrison cat is similar to Doomed Traveler and Hunted Witness, with Teysa on the battlefield they give 3 death triggers for only 1 mana. They are the "best" card that give 3 death triggers, the others ones cost 2 mana (Orzhov Enforcer, Doomed Dissenter, Tithe Taker, Carrier Thrall, Imperious Oligarch) you could argue about the purpose of token flying, deathtouch, 2/2 but from a cost for deathtrigger perspective it's strickly better.

Nice suggestion valentin74, so I'll walk you through my thoughts:
The way I view Yahenni, Undying Partisan is as a sack outlet with the upsides of additional beatdown and being hard to remove, whereas Recruiter of the Guard would be a tutor, so it's a bit hard to compare directly.
But let's first check what the Recruiter could get: Combo pieces: Both Reassembling Skeleton or Nether Traitor and Pawn of Ulamog All drain effect creatures like Blood Artist Sack outlets Woe Strider and Carrion Feeder Card draw: Midnight Reaper, Grim Haruspex and Mentor of the Meek Stuff I can sack: Doomed Traveler and alike, and if our graveyard is full Hallowed Spiritkeeper.
So actually it seems like Recruiter is indeed a versatile tutor and a card that I should probably include. I am not sure what I am going to cut for it though. Probably either Yahenni or Woe Strider. This is a meta call on how many destroy all creature wipes you see, as Yahenni can survive those and get's more powerful in the process, giving a bit more beatdown. Strider has the upside of doing something more useful when sacking, coming with a token himself and the escape ability if we really need that sack outlet. For now I'll swap out Yahenni. Thank's for the suggestion!

Hey, this is a very cheap deck. Are you not able to spend a little more? A $20 upgrade could really help your deck.
Even though have a low budget to work with there's still several upgrades you could make. Some upgrades to consider are to take more advantage of Teysa's ability to give you additional die triggers when a creature dies.
Good budget cards, $1 or less each, to consider adding:
- Command Tower: one of the best lands to multicolored decks in Commander.
- Caves of Koilos
- Tainted Field
- Orzhov Basilica
- Ash Barrens
- Doomed Traveler: Spirit token.
- Ministrant of Obligation: Spirit tokens.
- Tithe Taker: Spirit token.
- Requiem Angel: repeatable Spirit tokens.
- Reassembling Skeleton: good creature to sac since it can reanimate itself.
- Woe Strider: sac outlet and repeatable scry.
- Cartel Aristocrat: sac outlet.
- Grim Haruspex: draw when a nontoken creature you control dies.
- Mentor of the Meek: draw when a 1/1 Spirit token is created.
- Archon of Justice: exile permanent.
- Plaguecrafter: all players sac a creature/Planeswalker or discard a card. Can sac Plaguecrafter to itself.
- Fleshbag Marauder
- Reliquary Monk: destroy opponent artifact or enchantment.
- Dutiful Attendant: creature recursion.
- Soul Warden: gain life when Spirits are created and when other creatures including your opponents ETB.
- Soul's Attendant: same as Warden.
- Dreadhorde Invasion: with a sac outlet is a repeatable source of token or a token that grows in power/toughness.
- Diabolic Tutor: budget unconditional tutor.
- Read the Bones
- Talisman of Hierarchy: two drop mana rock.
- Orzhov Signet: two drop mana rock.
- Kaya's Guile
- Crush Contraband
- Dusk / Dawn
I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.

Have a Similar Demon worship/human sacrifice with some extra synergies. Basically, it generates small tokens to feed the demons, but also generates huge flyers. Starting with 2x Ravenous Demon Flip and 3x Demon of Catastrophes, cheap and lethal, just because you can get short of tokens. 2 copies of Rite of Belzenlok, wich generates creatures to sacrifice and at the third turn since you cast cast it, generates a huge flying 6/6 Demon token with trample. My main token generator creatures are 4 copies of Doomed Traveler and 2 copies of Thraben Doomsayer. I use 2x Skirsdag Flayer as a crature removal wich at the same time triggers Skirsdag High Priest ability (4 copies). Which is great. Tokens generators spells:3x Lingering Souls, 4x Gather the Townsfolk, 2xPromise of Bunrei, 1x Increasing Devotion.Some more synergies: 2 copies of Teysa Karlov, witch doubles tokens when Doomed Traveler dies, also giving vigilance and lifelink to ALL you tokens, including the demons generated from Rite of Belzenlok and Skirsdag High Priest, which is pretty solid. The rest of the Deck includes removals: 2x Bone Splinters, 4x Mortify. 2x Altar's Reap also feed the Sacrifice/Trigger mechanism giving extra cards. 2x Westvale Abbey Flip for flavour and, of course, a 9/9 flying, lifelink, Indestructible hasted finisher!
