Hey, nice version of Teysa. I don't know if it's great or that competitive, but fine for casual.
Budget is obviously a concern therefore my card suggestions will be within the budget. With only two tutors (Intent, Diabolic) to get Darkest Hour and only two sources of repeatable draw (Mentor, Skullclamp) going to have a difficult time out valuing your opponents or even keeping up with them. My advice is expand on Skullclamp since it's your best source of card advantage with sac outlets and tokens. Include more ways to get Skullclamp and recur Skullclamp?
- Open the Armory
- Beseech the Queen : Skullclamp and Hour are both one drops making this a reliable tutor for one of them.
- Sun Titan : can reanimate Skullclamp or Hour.
- Restoration Specialist : can recur both Skullclamp and Hour.
Repeatable draw to consider adding:
Other cards within the budget to consider adding:
- Caves of Koilos
- Ash Barrens
- Esper Panorama
- Temple of Silence
- Shambling Vent
- Talisman of Hierarchy
- Karmic Guide
Cards to consider cutting:
- Forsaken Sanctuary
- Orzhov Guildgate
- Scoured Barrens
- 2x Plains
- Beckon Apparition
- Intangible Virtue
- Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
- Archetype of Finality
- Drana's Emissary
- Anointer Priest
- Spark Harvest
- Commander's Sphere

I'm thinking you'll want to maximize on artifacts that are sacrificed in order to reap great benefit.
If you want access to some great ramp for you deck, Tooth of Ramos and Heart of Ramos will allow you to get 2 mana from them. After they are sacrificed, if Gerrard dies you get them back for free. Now I'm not sure on the technicality / legality of it, but I believe Horn of Ramos , Skull of Ramos and Eye of Ramos can also be used in your deck. Their errata text contains the mana symbols, but the physical cards do not; They list the color by name, not by identification. So I believe they are legal in all decks, regardless of colors.
- Arcbound Ravager can go full beast mode
- Burnished Hart is an obvious must
- Boros Cluestone card advantage
- Boros Locket more card advantage
- Cataclysmic Gearhulk is a recurring boardwipe
- Dreamstone Hedron gives you massive card advantage
- Glaring Spotlight amazing finisher
- Hedron Archive more card advantage
- Hope of Ghirapur lock on a single player
- Idol of Oblivion finisher
- Krark-Clan Ironworks explosive turns
- Kuldotha Forgemaster tutors
- Life Chisel life
- Lotus Bloom ramp
- Lotus Petal more ramp
- Metalwork Colossus free cast
- Mind Stone card advantage
- Mindslaver and I can not stress this enough, Mindslaver
- Mishra's Bauble card advantage
- Phyrexian Dreadnought bomb and you get back your artifact creatures
- Ratchet Bomb disgusting one-sided removal if you put 2 - 3 charge counters on it to blow up stones
- Universal Solvent awesome spot removal
- Wayfarer's Bauble ramp and deck filtering
Probably a few I missed but there you go.

hello mr. durtee i just wanted too say hey cool nice deck but your playing too many creatures like what if you get field swiped dude?? haha wouldnt that be crazy any way you should make it a landless stacks control prison combo storm deck with blue i herd those were good okay thanks you john bye
I'm going to try to order these from my most to least recommended.
Mirror March: I get making token copies, even if it's only nontoken creatures. What I can't get behind is costing 6 and STILL HAVING A 50% CHANCE OF DOING NOTHING.
Spirit Bonds: Ignoring the weak payoff of the spirit token (at least by edh standards), paying five mana and sacrificing a specific creature to protect one guy for one turn is pretty lame. You can't even protect your seance tokens because they're spirits.
Mercy Killing: If you choose an opponent's creature, they get the tokens. If you choose your own guys, you're going wide at the cost of two cards.
Eyes of the Wisent:
Emrakul's Evangel: I can't see what he does other than act like a one-time sac outlet that you have to wait for. 3/2 is going to be pretty close to what you're usually sacrificing anyway.
Huatli, Warrior Poet: Her token is cool, but her other abilities are really weak for the cost. Also she got a tiny booty.
Caller of the Claw: He'd be like a backup Fresh Meat if he counted the tokens too. 1 less mana for 1 less p/t would have been alright. Too bad.
Summoner's Pact: Kind of a weak creature tutor since you aren't playing toolbox or gunning for combo. Only green too.
Hornet Nest: Deathtouch flyers are good, but you don't have a way to damage it yourself and you probably have bigger threats than getting hit by birds.
Hoofprints of the Stag: Unless you add a lot more draw, these stags take forever to come out.
Godsire: Nice token, but he's got no haste or protection, which means you have to wait for the token while this dumbass sits there waiting to see if anyone around the table wants to remove him. Could be alright if you cheat him out reliably.
Regisaur Alpha: Neat to make a token copy of, but just under the bar on his own.
This is all in no particular order.
Marisi, Breaker of the Coil : Lessens combat shenanigans and potentially makes it so nobody attacks you ever again. also good with Gahiji.
Ohran Frostfang : Nobody wants to block you and you draw because of it. Even better considering all the trample you have.
Selesnya Eulogist : Might be the cheapest repeatable populate out there.
Dragonmaster Outcast : You wanted flying tokens, here they are. Also it's a cat with tits, classic.
Feldon of the Third Path : It's another Seance, but it doesn't exile and the token gets haste. MY GUY.
Flamerush Rider : Token copy maker.
Thragtusk : Don't say no to Thragdaddy. One of the only cards that can react to Biff.
Voice of Many : This man says draw three and you know it.
Precon Garruks ( Garruk, Primal Hunter ): Garruk.
Assemble the Legion : So I heard you run doubling season. But really, you know what this does to games.
Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker : Splinter Twin backup. Makes infinite tapped kikis with helm, in case you needed that.
Huatli, Radiant Champion : Easy to gun for the emblem, with an alright mid ability
Nacatl War-Pride : Forcing blocks means the rest of your creatures get through, or that you can divvy up the copies to other players. Gets really crazy the next turn when you populate one of the tokens. Absolutely insane if you get an additional combat.
Heroic Intervention : Boring, but necessary
Teferi's Protection : Extra boring, but even more necessary since it's the only answer to biff out there that isn't countering it.
Selfless Spirit : Not as boring since you can make a token copy of it for repeat use.
Baloth Cage Trap : Wow, when does anyone play an artifact in edh?!?! stupid card
Sneak Attack : Cheats creatures out with haste at instant speed for one mana and puts them in the grave to seance afterwards.
Survival of the Fittest : Puts big boys in grave, and any creature you want in hand.
ok thanks for coming to my ted talk bye

@: Already found 11 ideas to put in. Each w/ their own purpose of sacking. I suppose the fact I can't find something to Draw a card Via Saccing a Sap means I guess Utopia Mycon should be cut as mana regardless? What would be good here?:
Or is Fungal Plots fine?
Only after this will I feel ready to end this debate of Naya...

Recommend including Weathered Wayfarer, potentially over Tithe. While Tithe Does get 1-2 immediately, I think the continued value of WW, on top of the "get any land" surpasses the immediate value of Tithe. Potentially both work including.
I add Wayfarer's Bauble to practically every non-green deck I play these days. It curves so nicely and is a fine opening hand play, and even works fine after your geddons.
Recommend adding Angel Miracle card. A fine finisher for late game to add to your suite of instant wraths and other X spells.
Angel of the Dire Hour and Sunblast angel or another two wraths that have come in handy for me. I like the instant speed abuse, especially late game where you just don't use all your mana.
I'd move that Norn on over into the yesboard.
Oath of Lieges? Eh.
The minor anthems are so bleh.
Karn, the Great Creator I don't think is super valuable here.
Generous Gift over Swords, Path, etc?

I've got to disagree. The statue on Idol of Oblivion looks like the one on the left of Shrine of the Forsaken Gods . The armored and helmated one that looks like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre . Not the robed and "crowned" one that looks like Kozilek, the Great Distortion Although you can see the spikey halo that the "crown" evokes better on Kozilek's Return . If it is one of the three Old Gods of Zendikar it is definitely Ula.
