Ministrant of Obligation Discussion

canderson107 there's nothing wrong with that! It's a great card. I have been on the fence about Altar of Dementia but I already have Pitiless Plunderer and Reassembling Skeleton so I might as well try and fit it! Yeah yours is very token heavy. I like that afterlife mechanic. Feels great when you chop a Ministrant of Obligation with teysa and Divine Visitation out and net 4 Angels and tons of triggers.

FullmetalWes I figured I could cut out Hunted Witness and just have playsets of Mentor of the Meek for more consistent card draw Ministrant of Obligation for better Afterlife and Orzhov Enforcer for more blockers with Deathtouch, but I haven't gotten around to playtesting it just yet.

If you really want an indestructible type effect, you'd probably be better off going for Unbreakable Formation than Sheltering Light and Adamant Will as it protects all your creatures and can give them a buff and a decent attack step if you use if offensively instead of defensively.
I'd also personally run more cards with afterlife or an afterlife-type effect, like Orzhov Enforcer and Ministrant of Obligation so you can get extra value when those creatures die. Then you have even more creatures to lose for even more value.
Also if you want a higher end threat, Seraph of the Scales would be another good inclusion as its a threatening body on its own and if it dies you still get some value from it.
I've been quite interested in building a deck like this one, this might be the inspiration I need to actually build it.

I love Teysa decks! My reccomendation is to replace some of the token generating spells with creatures that generate tokens on death triggers. Cards like Orzhov Enforcer , Ministrant of Obligation and Doomed Traveler , really anything cheap with the Afterlife keyword. I would also recommend some cards that get you cards back from the graveyard, Whisper, Blood Liturgist is great for this as she also functions as a sacrifice outlet for you and Dutiful Attendant is great as it's triger doubles with your commander.

Genesis26 I dare say Priest of the Forgotten Gods is the best sacrifice outlet we have in standard right now. It's the go-to turn 2 play BECAUSE it's summoning sick, so it's got to be played as early as possible. Besides, even if it didn't have summoning sickness there's nothing to sac on turn 2. On turn three, we can follow the priest up with another expendable creature body ( Ministrant of Obligation is ideal) and sac it + the turn one play for value. This, however may not even be the ideal play, since we really don't even want to start saccing things in the early game; it's better to wait till the mid-game for more value with Teysa or Visitation.

Have you considered Arvad the Cursed ? I might even play him as your commander, since he gives an anthem effect (+2/+2) and drop Athreos in the 99. Honestly Atreos shines when he protects low CMC creatures. I don't think you will find a lot of people not paying the 3 life when 1 of your, often very powerfull, creatures dies. Next to that you play black and have a range of (under $9) tutors to fetch him.
You could throw in a little token/lifegain theme as support (very Orzhov) and play your deck as the guild extorting people and if they don't pay up exile their creatures. (Then Atreos might be super on theme again).
Legendaries I would run in a token/lifegain theme are: Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim Teysa, Orzhov Scion Karlov of the Ghost Council Kambal, Consul of Allocation Obzedat, Ghost Council Teysa Karlov Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts Regna, the Redeemer / Krav, the Unredeemed Ghost Council of Orzhova Vona, Butcher of Magan Aryel, Knight of Windgrace Elenda, the Dusk Rose Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder Yomiji, Who Bars the Way Whisper, Blood Liturgist Darien, King of Kjeldor Heliod, God of the Sun Brimaz, King of Oreskos Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle Oketra the True Elspeth, Sun's Champion Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Kaya, Orzhov Usurper Eight-and-a-Half-Tails
Support these guys with the following cards: Soul's Attendant Soul Warden Dictate of Erebos Grave Pact Smothering Tithe Ethereal Absolution Dawn of Hope Skullclamp Suture Priest Blood Artist Zulaport Cutthroat Crested Sunmare Regal Bloodlord Pious Evangel Flip Authority of the Consuls Blind Obedience Anointed Procession Hidden Stockpile Vindictive Vampire Twilight Drover Mentor of the Meek Priest of Forgotten Gods Pitiless Plunderer High Market Shizo, Death's Storehouse Divine Visitation Intangible Virtue Attrition
A few sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar
Of course all of this above is just a suggestion. I think in this way you can easily you can keep the Legendary theme alive in your deck, but point in a bit more towards the Orzhov Syndicate. (wich in my opinion is an awesome guild!!) I think I kept a bit on a eye on your budget of $9 a card. If I missed a few my apologies.

For RNA : Biogenic Ooze Angelic Exaltation Unbreakable Formation Ministrant of Obligation What do you think? Or maybe change a lot and make it about Hero of Precinct One with Heroic Reinforcements Join Shields , etc.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion , Bloodchief Ascension , Grave Pact , Deathbringer Liege , Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Hallowed Spiritkeeper , Ministrant of Obligation , Tithe Taker , Westvale Abbey Flip. To name a few suggested cards. I have a fairly budget version of Teysa here Teysa, Death Tyrant Inexpensive, and a much more costly version here Teysa, Death Tyrant.
