Creature — Human Monk
Geist-Honored Monk's power and toughness are each equal to the number of creatures you control.

Ah nice deck! I have a couple of suggestions you might appreciate. The first one revolves around your lands and ramp. Personally, I believe the following should have a spot in your deck.
- Wooded Bastion
- Windswept Heath
- Fortified Village
- Horizon Canopy
- Razorverge Thicket
I also like to run some multi lands, and if you want to try that out too, I would consider the following
- Exotic Orchard
- Ancient Tomb
- Mana Confluence
- Fabled Passage
- Yavimaya Hollow
- Reflecting Pool
- Prismatic Vista
- Forbidden Orchard
- Gemstone Mine
- Gemstone Caverns
There is also the concept of ramp! Some ramp I always love to run are
- Birds of Paradise
- Nature's Lore
- Lotus Petal
- Oracle of Mul Daya
Now usually lands are ramp are my expertise, but I happen to be building an emiel deck as well! Because of that I have some suggestions that you might find interesting. So first off, Brood Monitor goes infinite with emiel! When it enters, you get three eldrazi tokens which you can sacrifice for . You use that three to flicker the brood monitor with emiel, and get another three tokens which you can use to flicker it again. This gives you infinite enter the battlefield triggers. If you have your Soul Warden or something better, this can gain you infinite life. Another thing that can go infinite is if you use Ashnod's Altar. Any creature that creates 2+ tokens, with the Altar, and Emiel gets you infinite as well! If the creature creates three or more tokens when it enters, you also get infinite tokens. The possibilities here are limitless! If you have Aura Shards you destroy all your opponents artifacts and enchantments, if you have something that makes them lose life, or mill, that's also infinite. You can just go crazy and win fast. Some cards that create 2+ are....
- Regal Caracal
- Hornet Queen
- Geist-Honored Monk
- Deep Forest Hermit
- and many others!
Anyway, there are many ways to go infinite with Emiel, and I recommend checking them out if your into that sort of thing. Also do consider the land and ramp options, they could help you out a ton! If this does help you out be sure to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH), upvote them if you like them, and give me feedback if you want! Anyways, I hope this helps you out, good luck on your deck, (unicorns are amazing!) and have a great day!

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:
Deep Forest Hermit
Ghave, Guru of Spores
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner
Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:
Birds of Paradise
Embodiment of Agonies
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)
And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:
...all seem like good includes.
Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.

Hi, thank you for your advices, they're precisely what i needed! First of all i know that the description is rough and approximate, when i'll arrive to 100 cards beeing sure i'll fix it once for all.
Fetid Heath , Phyrexian Tower and Diabolic Intent are surely better, and are in my wishlist for now, but i'm already investing in my Kaalia deck and except for some budget utilities (like Wake the Dead ) i prefer to wait.
Talking about the cutting (that was my biggest problem):
Cathodion is effectively the first card to remove
Pitiless Plunderer and Geist-Honored Monk have both better alternatives ( Pawn of Ulamog and Sengir Autocrat ). The second was in for giving more possibilities to get a Nim's piece of Combo and a Xathrid Necromancer target. But i think you're right and i'll cut both of them.
I think that Felidar-Restoration + Corpse Knight could be a solution if i can't pass from graveyard ( Rest in Peace & co.), but effectively it's less synergical with Teysa and all the deck. So I'll cut them.
Cutting all this i go to 100 with Teysa Karlov and Elenda, the Dusk Rose still inside: the second is not a good token generator neither is useful with his lifelink, maybe adding a Doom Whisperer to going through the deck looking for missing card? The second is a redundant, if i go infinite i don't need it, but don't you think that in a bad moment of the game a double Teysa, Orzhov Scion or Skullclamp or giving lifelink and vigilance to all the generated tokens could be a good topdeck?

Tempest Caller can let you tap out an opponent's army for the finishing blow.

If you want more wincons via blinking (outside of stax, anyway), you'll need effects that generate creatures. Some of them are Myr Battlesphere , Genesis Chamber , Drowner of Hope , Whirler Rogue , and Geist-Honored Monk . Several of these cards are good not just because they make tokens, but because they also are useful beyond their ability to just make tokens. Brago gives you an incredible amount of mana and draw in a single turn, so his ability to produce a lethal amount of creatures shouldn't be underestimated.
