Nim Deathmantle to save and trigger creature ETB's

Dread Presence could do some work here, especially if you add Scapeshift and/or Splendid Reclamation with Urborg out.

Burglar Rat if you want to really be mean.

Enral: I mean, it WORKS I suppose, after you get infinite draw, but I just preferred going with the classic Ashnod's Altar / Nim Deathmantle combo after drawing my deck. It's less vulnerable and requires no dead pieces.

probably one of the best sac combos out there is Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle , with anything that says 'create two tokens' (for infinite tokens), or something like Geralf's Messenger for an insta win

A change log has been made for todays changes. I took your advice and removed Ravos and Whisper, adding in Chainer, Dementia Master and Nim Deathmantle instead. I also changed out some "dead" cards to better the deck I feel. Can always put them back if I want them XP

If you were looking to add Citadel and/or Aetherworks Marvel, I'd consider removing Kaya's Guile , Rotlung Reanimator , Decree of Pain . Kaya's Guile I'm not sure why its there. Instant speed "Exile Graveyards" and make people sac a creature? I honestly don't see you ever paying 6 mana to make a 1/1 and gain 4 life. There are better "exile graveyard" type effects. Sure, most of them do yours too, but if someon is about to win then whats worse? Even Leyline of the Void would be stronger I feel.

Rotlung you only have two Clerics; Rotlung and Pious Evangel  Flip. So I'm not sure why it is being run over another token generator/draw effect/reanimate type cards.

Decree of Pain, while it is card draw, is a feel bad at 8 mana. Even cycling only kills your creatures and draws you a single card.

Quick tip: I would replace for example Ravos, Soultender and Whisper, Blood Liturgist for Oversold Cemetery and Nim Deathmantle

Also Wurmcoil Engine feels a bit off theme, he is just there because he is value, but in no way has any synergy with Teysa, Orzhov Scion , he is probably what remains of your old deck ;-)

Also I run more Blood Artist effects, so Vindictive Vampire and Pious Evangel  Flip. These effects are basically your wincon if you don't go onto the Darkest Hour tour. It makes people think again about playing a board wipe and gives more value to your boardwipes when you play them if needed.

From war of the spark we also have Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord and Liliana, Dreadhorde General wich have amazing synergy with what the decks wants to do and that is being an aristocrats deck.

And ofcourse from modern horizons the new Yawgmoth, Thran Physician sack outlet and card draw and removal, it's basically everything orzhov wants...

At one point I cut Divine Visitation as well, since I found it too mana intensive and often to reliant on having a boardstate. Wich often can be a bit of a problem, since Teysa draws sooooo much hate. (wich is understandable) I replaced it for more recursion.

I do like your addition of Living Death and I'm gonna give it a go with that card as well. Since we mostly exile threats, I don't think whatever comes back is that much of a problem for us :)

And about darkest hour. It's up to you if you want to play it, it takes the deck from a nice deck to play against to full on combo. I kinda like that, I have the card and depending what powerlevel I'm up against I put it in or not. It's like a switch you can turn on and off. ".Darkest Hour I feel will need to be slotted in eventually for combo potential, but I gotta have something to combo it with, whether its Altar of Dementia or a Blood Artist like effect." - You already play it hahah. You just need teysa and a sac outlet and your done. One of the altars means infinite mana, Dementia is everyone is milled, one of the blood artists and everyone is dead, Gravepact/dictate the board is empty, Carrion Feeder is infinite big, Viscera Seer you scry for your wincon. And even without Darkest Hour that is why you want to run more of these blood artist effects and recursion to keep your guys on the board.

Also....where is your card draw? It feels like your gonna fall into the orzhov trap wich is being without a hand and without enough recursion you will slow down quite fast and the other decks will get the upper hand. 1 Midnight Reaper and 1 Grim Haruspex are not enough to stay dangerous..

Hope these tips will help you a bit

And otherwise if you want this is my decklist with what I play: Teysa, Orzhov Scion: a Dance Macabre

Shyachi33: Thanks for the comment!

It's... cute? Honestly, the real issue is that 1) I have no interest in running Triskelion in this deck, since he's utterly useless outside that combo, and 2) I have very few ways to protect that combo from counterspells or removal in mono-black, and if it's disrupted I'm SOL.

I suppose in this deck I could run a pile like Defense Grid / Contamination , Ashnod's Altar , Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Nim Deathmantle , Zulaport Cutthroat , with Yawg providing the method of draw... But then the question is whether it's actually NECESSARY, ya know?
