Ministrant of Obligation Discussion

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:
- Doomed Traveler : dies ability.
- Ministrant of Obligation : dies ability.
- Luminarch Ascension : repeatable source of tokens.
- Spawning Pit : sac outlet, repeatable source of tokens.
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.

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.
