Haazda Marshal Tithe Taker Ministrant of Obligation The Circle of Loyalty are all i'm seeing that have the potential of being worth it. Possibly an afterlife deck could abuse this mechanic, but I don't think mine could.

Hey, this is a very cheap deck. Are you not able to spend a little more? A $20 upgrade could really help your deck.

Even though have a low budget to work with there's still several upgrades you could make. Some upgrades to consider are to take more advantage of Teysa's ability to give you additional die triggers when a creature dies.

Good budget cards, $1 or less each, to consider adding:

I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.

sub780lime I took out Massacre Wurm, Athreos, God of Passage, and Priest of Forgotten Gods for Nightmare Shepherd, Ministrant of Obligation, and Victimize. Aristocrats has so many good cards that every cut really hurts, but honestly, I'd take out any of these three for Shepherd. It's such a good card and basically another copy of Teysa.

Added Phyrexian Altar and Anointed Procession and took out Debt to the Deathless and Open the Graves . I have Ministrant of Obligation somewhere, I just haven't taken the time to look for it. Do you guys think Whisper, Blood Liturgist is what should come out? I like the recursion, but he is a little slow.

you actually do have an infinite combo hidden in here whether you know it or not

With Teysa out, Ministrant of Obligation makes four extra bodies, five including her. Phyrexian altar means you get 5 mana from saccing all them. Phyrexian Reclamation only costs 2 to bring the ministrant back to hand, and she costs only 3 mana. It's a lot of work to get it going and it's sorcery speed, but you really can infinite this

I really like Ministrant of Obligation in Teysa decks as getting 4 black and white spirits out with one death is amazing value. I find Whisper, Blood Liturgist to be a bit slow for my deck so I cut her out and replaced with a Phyrexian Altar though of course that can get spendy so that is up to your discretion.

Anyways, I love it! Nicel

Hey, think about how you can get more value out of Teysa with the token strategy?

I'll give you four card examples within the budget to mull over:

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Tips. If you have recommendations I think I'd like something which can recover some value if all the spirits get taken out or if I'm ending up suiciding some lifelink tokens for Dawn of Hope . I basically added Impassioned Orator originally because opponents playing Ethereal Absolution was giving me head-aches and at least allowed me to throw Ministrant of Obligation onto the board for a minimum of 3x card-draw events off Dawn of Hope as they all come onto the board and immediately die while waiting for a Conclave Tribunal or something. Rising Populace is at least a cheap option, and the synergy with Teysa Karlov is nice but I'm hesitant.

Or maybe skip a Final Payment and just go for Kaya's Wrath and recover some tokens if the game gets stuck?
