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.

Thanks for the input! I actually have Hangarback Walker , Phyrexian Altar , Requiem Angel , Hallowed Spiritkeeper , and Dark Prophecy sitting aside. I definitely see a need for more stuff to chop. I will look at Pitiless Plunderer .

I recommend a few cards, Pitiless Plunderer can help you combo or just ramp fast. your deck could also use some more tokens to sacrifice as you lack a lot of creatures that are good if they die. speaking of which Hangarback Walker could really help out with the quite a few needing things to die and this guy makes plenty. Phyrexian Altar also can help get you cast your deck and is a great sac outlet. Requiem Angel allows for a lot for combos with infinite sacs. Hallowed Spiritkeeper more things to die. Dark Prophecy is good but can kill you or mill yourself out so be careful but is great otherwise.

Okay, so after looking at this deck for a while, considering its sideboard, and adding some cards that I use often for similar strategies, I've come up with a list of edits (well, actually three lists).

Before I get to those, I would like to explain what I found. Firstly, I like the idea behind the deck. Token strategies are always a great way to make a casual deck that can scale to be for optimized. I love the afterlife keyword as it lends itself to this optimization really well. But there were several less-than-savory card choices in here. The two biggest issues that I saw are ones that I see a lot (and full into too). The first of these is that many cards have a very high cost-to-value ratio. That is, there were several cards that cost too much (mana) and do too little for it. Elgaud Inquisitor is a fantastic example. While Elgaud Inquisitor is on-theme with their on-death triggered ability, that is all they have going for them. The lifelink isn't super useful, and the CMC is WAY too high. They are only a 2/2 too boot. Second off, theme isn't the same as function. I understand that there is a vorthos element to this deck, but since this deck isn't a full tribal deck, I think it's better to focus on ways to make the good parts of the theme work great.

I saw lots of cards that were life gaining cards ( Pontiff of Blight , Impassioned Orator , Riot Control , etc). This deck can make a lot of tokens which Tesya gives lifelink. You need not worry about life gain card. The strength of your creatures that make tokens when they die is that you can easily recur them in W/B. In the lists below, there are many cards that give added value to dying creature or make killing your creatures more ways to die. Lastly and most importantly, you had ZERO ramp and ALMOST NO card draw. THESE ARE THE TWO MOST FUNDAMENTAL ASSPECTS IN EDH!!! You NEED to have them!!! You can not rely solely on the one land drop and card draw. I've listed several cards that assist the main strategy and draw you cards (things like Dredge and Altar's Reap ). As for ramp, there is almost no good ramp outside of green. That only means that you have to look harder. Mana rocks are a must. I only have three in the lists, but they are absolute must-haves. Next, I put in several cards that give you mana in other ways. Most of them align themselves with the main strategy ( Ashnod's Altar , Soldevi Adnate , and Pawn of Ulamog to name a few). Similarly, I added cards that draw you cards from creatures dying. There is one card that I would like to point out in particular, Erebos . The important part of Erebos is his last ability. You pay and 2 life to draw a card. Life is a resource, and you'll be making plenty of it. Be sure to spend it. There are lots of cards that help you turn life into various things, like Bolas's Citadel (which I almost put in and still think has a place here). I would encourage you to look into them. Lastly, I would remove 6 lands. You have other ramp now and don't want to be flooded all of the time.

Here is the list of cards that I would remove:

I understand that there is a budget to this deck, so I've split my suggestions into two lists. The first is all cards that are cheap and should keep you under budget. The second list of cards is for later edits. If you want to spend more money on this deck, those are the cards that I would recommend buying.

As you're read through these, you might notice that a lot of these came from your sideboard. There are lots of good cards in there.

I hope you enjoy these changes. Just remember that casual decks don't have to be un-optimized.

Rally the Ancestors exiles the creatures you bring back, so they don't "die", and they don't trigger "on death" abilities.

Instead of Doomed Traveler , Hallowed Spiritkeeper , or other "on death" creatures, maybe add some creatures with good "enters the battlefield" abilities.

Rally the Ancestors seems more appropriate with cards like Ravenous Chupacabra (although that's a lot of mana... just an example) and Panharmonicon .

I like the deck, thanks for sharing!

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.

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

Flesh Carver , Hallowed Spiritkeeper , Kokusho, the Evening Star , Yosei, the Morning Star have been surprisingly strong in my list and would probably do work in this list too.
