Whenever Martyr's Bond or another nonland permanent you control is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, each opponent sacrifices a permanent that shares a card type with it.

Martyr's Bond Discussion
1 week ago
Looks like a cool deck, Orah seems like the commander clerics has been looking for for a long time. Combos are interesting, would suggest leaning into a couple of the more concise ones while cutting out any cards that would be dead outside of them like Shuriken. Also your lifegain combos become much more deadly with a Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose so would recommend those along with a Blood Artist type effect or two. Celestial Gatekeeper seems like an odd choice, not sure if it's worth. If you want the body then Butcher is very good but I find that Martyr's Bond does a lot of work for aristocrats. Also Burnt Offering is fun ramp but Culling the Weak might be better value since there's not a ton of creatures above 5 mana in there. This is definitely a meta call too but with undying combos and Mikeaus in there, a Solemnity might be worth along with some light lifegain tax like Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Anyway, hope that helps

Looks like we got a little over-excited and have 2 Field of Souls in the list too. No problem, there's a whole bunch of goodies we can put in instead. Just Ikoria, the most recent set, had amazing cards like Bastion of Remembrance, Luminous Broodmoth, Garrison Cat, Dire Tactics, and Serrated Scorpion.
A few organizational things...feel free to simplify it down even further if you'd like. You can put all lands in one category, all removal (exile, board clear...think anything that interacts with something an opponent has that is a problem) in one (this would be a good place for your Leonin Relic-Warder. Also, double check your category for Martyr's Bond :P However helps you think about the deck best.
One thing you could use is more ramp in the early game...a few rocks (since only green gets the land-based stuff and the mana dorks). Orzhov Keyrune, Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy, or maybe a few fetch creatures such as Knight of the White Orchid, or Boreas Charger. Otherwise, I think we just need to test.

Already run enough Blood Artist effects that Bastion seems unnecessary. I like that it's harder for your opp's to deal with, but I dislike that it's a bit harder to recur it. Mothra's great value but you need to run Solemnity to combo off with her. I'd prefer both in a more stax enchantment focused build with Academy Rector/Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos/Martyr's Bond

Martyr's Bond to kill off opponent's creatures
Whisper, Blood Liturgist for a sac trigger plus a little recursion
Viscera Seer for a good free sac trigger

Vault of the Archangel would be a good add if you plan to go wide. For planeswalkers, the B/W Sorins are usually a good fit for token decks, just pick what you feel is fit. Additional sac engines are usually good for Teysa such as Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar it gives you free sacs with mana which just snowballs out of control especially with a skullclamp or a pitiless plunderer out. If you want further removal, Dictate of Erebos is a must for a deck like this. Martyr's Bond is a bit expensive to cast but has an overall better effect. If you really want to focus on "death" triggers, add more zulaport-like cards such as Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble, Vindictive Vampire. Divinity of Pride seems out of place and doesn't really do the deck any good. You're deck will be too slow and inconsistent you need to up your mana rocks to around 8-12 to ensure to at least draw it in your opening hand or to at least have two in the early game asap to get you going. I also see no early draw engine or draw cards so maybe you could try cards such as Altar's Reap for cheap draw and sac trigger in one.

Correcting some changes:
I replaced Martyr's Bond with Adarkar Valkyrie. Although the aforementioned spell is very strong, it is more reactive, and I need a more proactive deck, the valkyrie is a very strong recursion piece and can combo with Thornbite Staff and Death Cultist. In turn, I removed Priest of Forgotten Gods to add Death Cultist.
There was the addition of the Chromatic Lantern for mana correction
