Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Deathmonicon - Teysa Karlov Aristocrats EDH

First round of changes in pre-playtesting (substituting a bunch of cards since I’m waiting on some in the mail)! Extra thanks to hkhssweiss for helpful suggestions!

-1 Fumigate +1 Kaya's Wrath

Costing one less matters, and Kaya’s Wrath is such a cool card flavorwise. The additional life gain from Fumigate is negligible.

-1 Phyrexian Rebirth +1 Living Death

Rebirth was too expensive and the token pretty much died immediately. In went my favorite chaos boardwipe, and boy can our deck abuse it. Chuck everything in the bin (including our commander) before casting it to make everyone go “uh oh”.

-1 Forsaken Sanctuary +1 Necropotence

Yeah, I was pretty stupid for not shoehorning in this ridiculous card advantage machine. I was initially skeptical about triple black and losing discarded cards to exile, but I found as long as they weren’t my combo pieces, I usually didn’t care. I always had surprisingly high mana, so I could cut a budget land.

For the future, will be considering cutting Gate to the Afterlife and God-Pharaoh's Gift for Diabolic Intent and Smothering Tithe .

I would add Resplendent Angel, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Regal Bloodlord, Fountain of Renewal and one more Ajani's Pridemate

I would also replace Forsaken Sanctuary with Isolated Chapel

You should also probably have more control/creature distruction like Nightmare's Thirst, or Invoke the Divine

most of this is assuming that this is not a budget deck.

I recently made a life gain deck if you would like to take a look

Maybe you should consider some mana-fixing lands so you won't be color-screwed: Scoured Barrens, Orzhov Guildgate, Forsaken Sanctuary, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Secluded Steppe, Barren Moor.

For your lands, I would recommend you run 38. This number should be a mix of utility, mana fixing, and basics.

Utility: Reliquary Tower Homeward Path

Mana Fixing:

Fetches: Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds

Tri Color: Arcane Sanctum, Esper Panorama, Command Tower

Scry Lands: Temple of Deceit, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Silence

Bounce Lands: Azorius Chancery, Dimir Aqueduct, Orzhov Basilica

Check Lands: Drowned Catacomb, Glacial Fortress, Isolated Chapel

Gain Lands: Dismal Backwater, Scoured Barrens, Tranquil Cove

Guildgates: Azorius Guildgate, Dimir Guildgate, Orzhov Guildgate

Tap Lands: Forsaken Sanctuary, Meandering River, Submerged Boneyard

P.S. Hour of Devastation is not allowed in your deck.

multimedia on B/w menagerie

Hey, good ideas here. I haven't seen Gruesome Menagerie without green.

Consider 4x Knight of Grace and 3-4x Knight of Malice? These Knights have potential with Menagerie and they're very good two drop creatures with or without each other especially Grace. Dauntless (one drop), Grace/Malice/Freebooter (two drop), Plaguecrafter/Isareth/Reaper/Resplendent (three drop); this is a good combination of creatures to reanimate with Menagerie. Consider 4x Forsaken Sanctuary? There's a wide range of white and black creatures here, more dual lands can help to consistently make or casting costs.

Good luck with your deck
