Hey man! Welcome to magic. I have a few suggestions... feel free to ignore any/all of them.

  1. Dorks are one mana creatures that tap for mana. A lot of the time people don't like them, because before you play with them you don't realize how absurdly powerful they are; people are wrong. I highly suggest running at least a handful of these guys, like Llanowar Elves, Elves of Deep Shadow, Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic... In general, ramping turn one is REALLY strong, since it lets you play a turn ahead of everyone else. Though they aren't one mana, you could also consider some cards like Priest of Titania or (if you're rich) Bloom Tender, which are also pretty strong.

  2. Slate of Ancestry is an interesting card to consider. You're running a lot of creatures, so I think in general using Slate of Ancestry will be card-positive for you. Note also that if you discard a creature card with it, Meren of Clan Nel Toth can just get it back for you.

  3. Plaguecrafter: This guy is messed up, and he gets you an experience counter from sac-ing himself. Also, once you're at 3 exp, you can just keep recurring him.

  4. Abrupt Decay/Assassin's Trophy: Personally, I like Abrupt Decay more since I play in a meta with a lot of counterspells and low-to-the-ground decks, but both are good. Being able to kill any card type is generally pretty powerful.

  5. Casualties of War/Windgrace's Judgment: Like (4), these can kill anything. I am preferential to Windgrace's Judgment because it's an instant, but again, both are powerful cards.

  6. Nature's Claim is a really efficient piece of spot removal for things like Rest in Peace, Grafdigger's Cage or Leyline of the Void. I suggest running it.

  7. If you're in a counter-heavy meta, Veil of Summer is an absurd card.

  8. Finally, running Ancient Tomb is worth considering. It's pricy, but the price is lower these days than it has been in a while; the ramp it offers is really, really good.

Cards I'd consider cutting:

Eldrazi Monument: Your experience may be different from mine, but I feel like this card is probably a win-more type thing in that it's only really good if you're already winning the game. You're probably better off just running card draw by something like Phyrexian Arena or Slate of Ancestry.

A few lands: If you run the dorks mentioned in (1), generally people don't play more than 33 lands.

Butcher of Malakir: The effect is good, but you already have Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. I think the third piece of redundancy is probably too much.

Black Sun's Zenith: Like Butcher of Malakir, I think you have plenty of ways to make your opponents lose creatures already. You're probably better off running more universal removal, like Windgrace's Judgment.

Algae Gharial, Flesh Carver, Scavenger Drake: While these aren't bad, you can probably do better. I think overall they don't have enough punch to end up in a final decklist.

Also, since you're a new player, I'd like to point out edhrec.com is an excellent resource I use a lot. You should check it out if you haven't already.

Good luck!

SufferFromEDHD First off, love the username haha. Secondly thank you for the suggestions! Did my best working them into the deck list. I didnt know about Flesh Carver but Hallowed Spiritkeeper I've had my eye on at one point, just wasn't sure at the time about fitting him in and guess I just forgot about it. You're right about Yosei, the Morning Star though, while it isn't the best in other decks it does fit perfectly well considering Teysa is the commander. Thanks!!

Kokusho but no Yosei, the Morning Star ?

Flesh Carver and Hallowed Spiritkeeper have been MVP in my list. Highly recommend.
