Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Not sure what kind of advice you're looking for because the deck is bad, but you know that already. Consider more hatebears? Increasing the pillowfort/opponent disruption strategies and decreasing everything else? Teeg is a good Commander for hatebears. You already have a few good ones Ouphe and Honor Guard, but consider more? Instead of playing a lot of lackluster creatures play hatebears that can both attack and disrupt your opponent. You can build a hatebear/pillowfort strategy on a budget especially since you already have Ghostly Prison

Cards ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

Lands:

Win Condition:

  • Luminarch Ascension : win condition when you have established a pillowfort and have your opponents disrupted. Repeatable source of 4/4 Angels that gets around many hatebears and disruptive enchantments/artifacts.
  • Sun Titan : can reanimate lots of different hatebears including Teeg, disruptive enchantments/artifacts or Wasteland/Strip Mine.

Hatebears:

Other:

If interested in these suggestions I offer more advice including potential cuts. Good luck with your deck.

Leonin Arbiter aka cat jesus is amazing against anydeck with fetchlands, espcially if you can vial him in response. there are better cards than Steppe Lynx for you to play. Fiery Justice is bad there has to be better removal for you in white.

Nice seeing the less common tribes being given attention. Looks like you have done a good job finding the staples that fit well with Kemba.

I have a few suggestions despite this:

More red/white hate:

Price of Glory

Aven Mindcensor

Loxodon Gatekeeper

Imposing Sovereign

Tectonic Instability

Stranglehold

Sulfuric Vortex

Blood Moon

Bedlam

Heat of Battle

Heat Stroke

Onslaught

I see you are already running some creatures like Leonin Arbiter that does what Stranglehold does, but thought i throw the suggestions out there anyway.

Another option for ramp which I'm sure you are well aware of is Smothering Tithe .

And i would personally run Vandalblast over Mogg Salvage unless it works well in your meta. Dont get me wrong it’s a sweet way to cheat cmc but it’s very contextual.

Maybe Assemble the Legion or Crescendo of War for funsies?!

Why choose Aven Mindcensor over Leonin Arbiter ??

Suggestions:

-- Divine Intervention - replace with a full wipe, rather than something that lets your opponent keep their best creature.

-- Relic Crush - replace with Sylvan Reclamation - exile is better, and can be cycled for a land if running short.

-- Leonin Arbiter - with the amount of searching you do, I'd re-think the search denial, as it hinders your own searching for lands too.

-- Jedit Ojanen of Efrava is just... not the greatest. He's pretty lackluster.

-- Curse of Vitality is very minor lifegain.

-- Nissa's Pilgrimage could be replaced with Kodama's Reach or Skyshroud Claim

You have an awful lot of slow lands, that come in tapped. Canopy Vista is pretty much strictly better than a Guildgate.

--Move Mirari's Wake to the main board. You should always run that. Same with Swords to Plowshares which is strictly better than Condemn. Aura Shards should likewise go into the main deck.

Soul's Majesty should be replaced with Rishkar's Expertise - it's one mana more, but can't be countered by killing the target, and it lets you cast something in your hand (even if it's not one of the things you drew).

I find Hunter's Prowess is outclassed by its uncommon counterpart, Hunter's Insight - it lacks the +3/+3, but the instant speed means you can just choose any unblocked creature, your opponents not getting the ability to block the target more to deny you cards. Also, it's 2 mana cheaper.

I'd try to find a slot for Rancor - it's a recurring way to grant trample, and +2/0 for one mana is sweet.

Lightning Greaves has screwed you over so many times in our games. Consider Swiftfoot Boots instead? The two differences are it costs mana to equip, at the trade-off of you can still target the creature later on without opening a vulnerability window with re-equip/etc, or locking you out of targeting it if it's your only creature.

Yeah this does’t feel like a tax deck at all. You need Thalia, Guardian of Thraben to actually tax their cards, and Leonin Arbiter alongside Ghost Quarter to tax their lands. At the moment you’re not really “taxing” anything - i suggest a rename of the deck?

This isn't a Necropotence deck or a Death and Taxes deck.

Necropotence refers to the card itself, and decks built to abuse it, where Death and Taxes are white weenie aggro decks that have creatures that disrupt the opponents, with cards such as Dryad Militant , Mother of Runes , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Leonin Arbiter , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , etc.

Can you remove those tags? I was looking for Necro decks and found this.
