Whenever another creature dies, put a +1/+1 counter on Elenda, the Dusk Rose.

When Elenda dies, create X 1/1 white Vampire creature tokens with lifelink, where X is Elenda's power.

If you really want to incorporate tokens into your aristocrat deck, it’s gotta be Karador, Ghost Chieftain . Why? Cuz white. White means Intangible Virtue , it means some badass artifact/enchantment removal, and it means a lot of really solid B/W legends in the 99 ( Teysa Karlov , Athreos, God of Passage , Krav, the Unredeemed , Regna, the Redeemer , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , most of the Sorins, there’s more but whatever).

Other suggestions would be to remove Ashen Rider it’s to expensive. You have Archon of Justice and that is enough. You don’t need both.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose should be in the deck.

Remove Sadistic Hypnotist only because de it’s not an instant speed sac outlet.

Other death trigger life loss cards need to be added Vindictive Vampire , Pious Evangel  Flip.

To help get lands in to play you should look at Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

To help better control your opponents creatures I suggest Dictate of Erebos and gravepact

I have my own build of Mardu Aristocrats & I am very impressed with it. It has a likelyhood of beating every popular deck in the meta. I would recommend taking out Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Midnight Reaper , Teysa Karlov , 2 Dreadhorde Butcher , & putting in a fully playset of Priest of Forgotten Gods & Hero of Precinct One . I would also recommend taking out Gutterbones & replacing him with Reassembling Skeleton since he combos off so much better & costs 1 less total mana overall to bring him back. Would also recommend Heartfire since it can win the game on the spot, as well as Liliana, Dreadhorde General . She is a win condition. I'd also recommend putting in a playset of Pitiless Pontiff since she is a fantastic sac outlet. A one of for the Split card Revival / Revenge is good too. Just some suggestions.

Kresh the Bloodbraided and Elenda, the Dusk Rose can be pretty awesome as well. Also, Krav, the redeemed is strong as well.

You’re welcome.

I have no problems with Bontu the Glorified as a sac outlet. 1 colourless and 1 black should never be an issue. Even Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is easy to have the right mana for.

Smothering Tithe helped immensely in ramp and colour fixing.

Only issue I have with Land Tax is the land goes to your hand not on to the battlefield. It only ensures you play nice fair magic with dropping 1 land a turn when playing Orzhov.

Oketra's Monument a card I’ve considered myself. However it falls in to the same category as Open the Graves , Ogre Slumlord , Requiem Angel and several other similar cards.

For me personally not enough value from it as a token generator.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose is in my opinion the best token generator in a aristocrats death trigger build.

Field of Souls you could slot as each non token creature you sac creates a token, it’s cheap and it would trigger twice from Teysa Karlov .

I’ll go over my suggested cuts after work.

Because Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Arcades, the Strategist , are two of my favorite commanders, here's this:

Nahiri, Wallraiser

Legendary Planeswalker - Nahiri

+1: Create two 0/1 colorless Wall artifact creature tokens with defender.

-2: You may sacrifice a creature with defender. If you do, add X , where X is the sacrificed creature's toughness.

-7: Each creature you control with defender gets +6/+6 and gains trample, haste, and vigilance until end of turn, and can attack this turn as though it doesn't have defender.

This card can be your commander.


Mash together two more of my favorite commanders, Ramos, Dragon Engine and Muldrotha, the Gravetide .

Life_autonomous I had a sac outlet to buff out Elenda, the Dusk Rose when she had 10+ counters I sacked her to get what should of been 20+ vampire tokens but with Divine Visitation out i got all angels. I did this on the end step prior to my turn. Needless to say 20+ 4/4's with lifelink were fun to have. I would recommend more free sack outlets. Also Krav, the Unredeemed and Regna, the Redeemer are fun.
