When Hallowed Spiritkeeper dies, put X 1/1 white Spirit creature tokens with flying onto the battlefield, where X is the number of creature cards in your graveyard.

I recently built Teysa Karlov but I'm liking the idea of a sac outlet as the commander.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion , Bloodchief Ascension , Grave Pact , Deathbringer Liege , Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Hallowed Spiritkeeper , Ministrant of Obligation , Tithe Taker , Westvale Abbey Flip. To name a few suggested cards. I have a fairly budget version of Teysa here Teysa, Death Tyrant Inexpensive, and a much more costly version here Teysa, Death Tyrant.

Love the deck - been wanting to make a similar one for a while. accordianing suggestions to avoid filling the page.
Roc Egg - double dips as well, making multiple 3/3 flying tokens when it dies with your general on the field.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad - pumps out lifelinkers, pumps out emblems. double win.
Hallowed Spiritkeeper - the bigger the graveyard, the bigger the swarm
Anointed Procession - Double up on tokens. works with Treasure & Clue tokens too
Wurmcoil Engine - double dips into a on death trigger
Hangarback Walker - double dips into, you guessed it, a death trigger. sensing a theme in my suggestions...
Pitiless Plunderer - gives treasure tokens on you creature's death.
Revel in Riches - gives treasure tokens on enemy creature's death, and an alternate win con
Sacred Mesa - also triggers a sac proc each turn you keep it around
Hidden Stockpile - a sac outlet that grants creatures.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion - pumps out tokens 3 at a time, or wide down the fatties. or both.
Twilight Drover - make tokens when tokens die. the cycle continues.
Custodi Soulbinders - makes tokens based on how many creatures were in play.
White Sun's Zenith - EoT mana dump for all the tokens. follow up with general cast, swing.
Entrapment Maneuver - force a solo attacker to die, makes tokens. handy little overlooked combat trick.
Lingering Souls - kind of a staple of Orzhov spirits, was kinda supprised not to see it.
Luminarch Ascension - stall to make stupidly cheap angels.
Shadows of the Past - lets you dig quickly through your deck with aenough death effects. doubles as a recurable life drain effect once your yard is deep enough
Sangromancer - death is life. who knew?
Bloodchief Ascension starts out small, but starts draining hard once it gets rolling.
Vampiric Rites is a solid, cheap card draw engine for tokens.
Thallid Soothsayer is it's legged, slightly more expensive brother (no life gain, but no black mana cost. more expensive, but has legs. bit of give and take, really)
Seraph of the Scales - this card is solid, if not amazing, so I was rather suprised to not see it here.
Yosei, the Morning Star - either lock down 2 opponents for a turn, or one opponenet for 2 turns. either way is a solid win.
Archon of Justice - exile a threat on death. simple enough.
Ashen Rider - triggers coming and going, but kinda pricey mana wise. worth looking at if nothing else.
Kokusho, the Evening Star - drain ALL THE THINGS!
Solemn Simulacrum - goes in most decks, didn't see it here so I figured I'd mention it.
Vindictive Lich - gives alot of options for a single death effect.

Revel in Riches is a back up win con that I'd like to keep. and I mainly used Flesh-Eater Imp as a target for my opponents to remove or I slide in some quick infect damage. but it won't hurt for him to go. Athreos, God of Passage + Hallowed Spiritkeeper + Deathrender = infinite tokens as long as they choose not to pay cost of Athreos, God of Passage especially if Teysa Karlov is on the board.

Hey, this is a good start. For upgrades consider adding more cards that give you repeatable value when creatures die especially draw?
One of the best upgrades to consider is Skullclamp . This card is amazing with Teysa and tokens because when the equipped creature dies you draw four cards, yes four cards. There's a large amount of low mana cost creatures who create a token when they die; with Teysa they create two or more tokens. These cards give you three or more possible creatures to equip Skullclamp too.
Doomed Traveler for example can draw 12 cards, three different equips for 3-5 mana depending on if you already have Skullclamp/Traveler on the battlefield or not. You already have Elenda and she's the kind of token value you want when creatures die or when she dies. Other cards that can be repeatable draw when creatures die are Dark Prophecy , Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper . Prophecy triggers when tokens die.
Cards to consider adding:
- Grim Haruspex
- Dark Prophecy
- Midnight Reaper
- Doomed Traveler
- Reliquary Tower
- Hunted Witness
- Hallowed Spiritkeeper
- Tithe Taker
- Hangarback Walker
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Demonic Tutor or Diabolic Intent or both
- Enlightened Tutor or Open the Armory or both: Enlightened is more expensive price because it can search for any artifact or any enchantment where as Armory can only search for Skullclamp.
- Karmic Guide
- Viscera Seer
- Carrion Feeder
Reveillark (Lark) + Karmic Guide + no mana cost sac outlet (Ashnod, Dementia, Seer, Feeder, etc.) is an infinite combo that includes a infinite dies loop (Lark and Karmic loop each other). Lark is a great card with Teysa because if it leaves the battlefield as a result of it dying (evoking it, being saced, being killed by opponent, dies in combat) then it will trigger Teysa or other cards dies abilities. With Teysa if it does die you can reanimate four creatures with power 2 or less instead of two, but you don't actually need Teysa to combo with Lark.
This combo is powerful with Cutthroat and Artist since then it's also a win condition. It's also a win condition with Dementia as the sac outlet by milling all your opponents decks. Ashnods makes unlimited colorless mana. Solemn you draw your deck and put all your basic lands onto the battlefield. There's many other cards you can add that do different infinite effects with this combo. What's great about Lark and Karmic is they're good cards with or without the combo.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Ancient Stone Idol
- Aryel, Knight of Windgrace
- Knight of Sorrows
- Laquatus's Champion
- Pitiless Pontiff
- Priest of Forgotten Gods
- Death's-Head Buzzard
- Black Cat
- Gleaming Barrier
- Butcher of Malakir
- Whisper, Blood Liturgist
- Dowsing Dagger
- Bankrupt in Blood
- Revival / Revenge
- Exquisite Blood
- Sanguine Bond
Good luck with your deck.

It's kind of funny. I've seen quite a few Teysa builds floating around(including my own) and they all seem to look alike. I like the idea of Teysa, and plus my playgroup wont see her coming from a mile away.lol Good looking deck you've built. Might I suggest Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Hallowed Spiritkeeper and possibly Yosei, the Morning Star ?

Hey TheSimikBOat, thank you for commenting. Hallowed Spiritkeeper is already in the deck. Hidden Stockpile seems like a good fit but I wonder if it is better then the token makers or sacoutlets I already have. The low CMC is really good but it needs some setup to get going. Which card would you cut for it?
