Imperious Oligarch Discussion

In playester, Imperious Oligarch makes the wrong token, a Spider instead of a Spirit.

I definitely wouldn't remove Tithe Taker for Garrison Cat, but I see your point and if there's a desire to lower the curve further, I do agree the others could be swapped out, especially Imperious Oligarch.

Garrison cat is similar to Doomed Traveler and Hunted Witness, with Teysa on the battlefield they give 3 death triggers for only 1 mana. They are the "best" card that give 3 death triggers, the others ones cost 2 mana (Orzhov Enforcer, Doomed Dissenter, Tithe Taker, Carrier Thrall, Imperious Oligarch) you could argue about the purpose of token flying, deathtouch, 2/2 but from a cost for deathtrigger perspective it's strickly better.

Other 2-drop creatures in place of Shanna that you could consider:
A few overlap, e.g. Grim Flayer and Imperious Oligarch are also human. Of this list, I think three really stand out: Grim Flayer fits both of your strategies (multicolor and human), but I'm not sure you'll ever get delirium. Fleecemane Lion isn't a human, but it is multicolor and it's the traditional strongest 2-drop in Abzan. And Corpse Knight, which isn't human but works extremely well with Hero because it doesn't specify nontoken.

I don't know who you play against, how it goes, or how the deck really performs so I can't really say. My initial thoughts point at
Raise the Alarm
I also noticed Costly Plunder as something I'd replace but specifically for its place I'd put in a Necropotence . For the creatures I suggested Imperious Oligarch , Seraph of the Scales , Doomed Traveler and whatnot are things I immediately notice. Karlov isn't guaranteed to be out. Afterlife is nice and all but it only goes so far when you could get something else like control out of those three I mentioned. I don't know how well afterlife pays off for you though, I haven't messed with it in my EDH yet. More tokens are always nice but I feel like there are better options than most afterlife creatures. I was hoping for better afterlife from Ravnica Allegiance.

hey, Endrobot! you asked me to come up with some cuts for the deck in return for upvotes, so here I am! hmm tough decisions here.. theyre all very synergistic, but I'll do what i can to the best of my ability. Reassembling Skeleton works well because you can sac,bring back and repeat as long as you have the mana but he doesn't have a death trigger. Hunted Witness , Doomed Dissenter , Doomed Traveler , Imperious Oligarch & Orzhov Enforcer are great low cmc creatures that synergize really well with teysa, but maybe theyre just not inpactful enough for EDH? i dont know you dont want to cut too many low cards. Plus, they all make tokens when they die and with teysa out, they make double tokens, with lifelink and vigilance so maybe just a few of those? maybe Batwing Brume ? its a cool effect and i see the synergy but i would put in a Path to Exile instead? Smothering Abomination works well too, and card-draw is essential. but his ability doesn't double trigger with teysa. plus, it seems like you have plenty of draw. Pitiless Plunderer is good..good ramp..but if youre gonna run him id throw in a Revel in Riches as an alternate win-con. but what Kiba said: it is better at flash speed. a Vedalken Orrery would be great if it wasnt $30. i only own one now im considering putting it in my teysa build instead of my new chainer deck. hmm more cuts more cuts... if youre gonna keep your deck low to the ground and not take out all of those two drops like i said (which cutting low cmc cards may be a bad idea, i'll admit) then you could afford to cut a couple lands? you have ramp with Solemn, the hart, all the rocks and the plunderer. it shouldnt be too bad cutting at least one or two lands. especially with the new mull rule. Sorry. I'm all over the place with my suggestions. I certainly hope I was atleast some help. Please let me know what you end up doing! im curious now. and i like what you got here, btw. +1 from me!

you could try a few cards if you want to go with the life gain path, Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is great for giving the rest of your creatures lifelink and some reanimation from him on say elenda could be good. next, your deck has a decent amount of creatures dying and you have poison tip archer, so then you could try Cruel Celebrant to gain off of that. another good card is Bond of Flourishing , you get to look for a card and gain some life. you could consider Ajani's Pridemate as well, gets real big real fast. lastly, if you added some more sacrifice fodder like Imperious Oligarch then you might be able to add something like Priest of Forgotten Gods but that might not fit into the deck.
