Field of Souls
Whenever a nontoken creature is put into your graveyard from the battlefield, put a 1/1 white Spirit creature token with flying onto the battlefield.
Field of Souls Discussion

This is not a fully optimized list. It lacks a lot of fast mana, and generally has a lot of 'do-nothing' cards: the monuments, Oketra's Monument , and Bontu's Monument ; Field of Souls ; etc. That said, the deck is very interactive and incredibly strong when games go long.
Because the mana curve is relatively low, we are able to recur Gutterbones , Relentless Dead , etc. for card draw while still interacting with our opponents and assembling a win condition. The altars: Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar are game winning threats that go infinite in combination with Teysa, Orzhov Scion and one of our recur-able threats. A free sac outlet, and Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Gray Merchant of Asphodel goes for infinite drain. There are many other loops that can be made with our aristocrats...too many to list. I would encourage anyone adapting this list to play test a lot and familiarize yourself with the deck before taking it out for a spin with your play group.
Our protective equipment Swiftfoot Boots , Lightning Greaves , and Whispersilk Cloak are in the deck to protect Krav and/or Regna to preserve their ability to generate value. Because they are so expensive, if they are removed, it really sets the deck back, so be careful about when you deploy them--especially Krav.

If you're looking for cards to cut to reduce your cmc, then:
Sadistic Hypnotist -- it's a nice effect, but you can't combo this, you don't have a reanimator shell, and you're not exactly a discard-focused deck. Is too dependent on other specific cards.
I'm not super sold on Seraph of the Scales as a commander card. I've not seen it played so I may not be the best judge.
Several of your 5-6 drop enchantments and sorceries could easily be swapped. Martyr's Bond does a little bit more for you than Grave Pact , depending on if you have one of your three treasure-generating cards out, which themselves are dependent on other things in order to create any treasure tokens. Not sure if the potential synergy is worth it.
Black Market will be nice in some cases, but will otherwise result in either a) unused mana or b) a blowout if anyone points removal at it. It's too undependable a source of ramp, especially because it limits your usage of the mana to your main phase. That you don't have a reliable mana sink with which to use the mana is even less ideal. More efficient, consistent sources of ramp will work better in its slot.

Some of these cuts below are for efficiency to reign in your cmc, others because there are better cards. Are you looking to make a lifegain-matters deck or a tokens/aristocrat deck? You have a ton of lifegain sources that situationally come into play.
Consider cutting some of the permanent-based sources of card draw for things like Night's Whisper or Sign in Blood . Harvester of Souls is great, especially with Teysa on the board, but it costs 6 mana and can potentially draw you into nothing. Or it may give underwhelming returns for the amount of mana you have to pay into it.

Thanks for the suggestions! I generally stay away from the signets and I'm pretty confident with my mana base right now, but I'll definitely keep those in mind, especially Magus of the Coffers because that could go great with Torment of Hailfire .
Mimic Vat could work, but I'm not sure I'd fetch for it. I like Dawn of Hope . Field of Souls and Open the Graves I feel would miss a lot because most of my field is tokens. I like Luminarch Ascension but that would make me a target unless it was a turn two drop.
Yeah, it was the first thing I thought of when I though of treasure tokens lol. I might change the name.

I like the idea of the deck, lots of sacrifice outlets and token generation and it plays well into your commanders strength so good work there. The changes I would consider making are those to your mana base, adding three more lands and Orzhov Signet , Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus . I would also add Magus of the Coffers and Expedition Map to 'double up' on cabal coffers. Some value adds to consider are Mimic Vat , Dawn of Hope , Field of Souls , Luminarch Ascension and Open the Graves . The animations you have chosen make me think you should name the deck "Scrooged", keep up the good work.
