Change Notes:

Out: Bishop of Rebirth
In: Oversold Cemetery
Oversold Cemetery is way cheaper to cast then Bishop of Rebirth . It doesn't need as much conditions to be met, aswell.

Out: Butcher of Malakir
In: Purphoros, God of the Forge
Included another win condition with Purphoros, God of the Forge in exchange for a really expensive vampire which doesn't help the most important part of the deck.

Out: Fetid Heath
In: Fellwar Stone
Since the mana curve was lowered, one land can be cut for another piece of ramp.

Out: Kalastria Highborn
In: Gifted Aetherborn
Swaped out one vampire for another stronger one with important keywords.

Out: Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
In: Knight of the Ebon Legion
Changed another costly vampire for a cheaper one with strong upsides.

Out: Mathas, Fiend Seeker
In: Erebos, God of the Dead
Use life as a reassource with Erebos, God of the Dead , it's also way less specific then Mathas, Fiend Seeker 's effect.

Out: Bloodtracker
In: Expedition Map
Took out a costly vampire which has a specific effect for another piece of ramp, which is especially great for some of the utility lands (e.g. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth & Cabal Coffers ).

Out: Kindred Dominance
In: Vampire of the Dire Moon
Included another cheap vampire with strong keywords and took out a expesnive boardwipe.

Out: Sorin, Grim Nemesis
In: Throne of the God-Pharaoh
Swaped an expensive planeswalker for a cheap artifact which can act as a win condition.

Out: Boros Charm
In: Etchings of the Chosen
Swaped out a one time protection for a repeatable one.

Out: Vanquisher's Banner
In: Bolas's Citadel
Bolas's Citadel doesn't draw you cards, but you can even cheat vampires into play from the top of your deck.

Change Notes:

Out: Exquisite Blood
In: Cruel Celebrant
I want to increase my vampire count. Exquisite Blood is really strong, but it's a 5 mana enchantment which does nothing when it hits the board. There are other cards in this deck with the same flaw. But I felt like choosing to cut this one for Cruel Celebrant is the best way to go, since the main purpose of Cruel Celebrant is to drain some life.

Out: Diabolic Intent
In: Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord
Tutors are huge and powerful. But I want to tune this deck a bit down for now. The abilitys of Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord are really strong too, even though it's not tutoring, it helps to pump your vampires and cheat mana.

Out: Oversold Cemetery
In: Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord
I liked Oversold Cemetery 's effect, but it was really situational. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord can bring creatures back and buff your vampires. That's why I switched them out, since Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is increasing the value of our vampires.

Tylord2894 on W/B Teysa Commander

Okay, so after looking at this deck for a while, considering its sideboard, and adding some cards that I use often for similar strategies, I've come up with a list of edits (well, actually three lists).

Before I get to those, I would like to explain what I found. Firstly, I like the idea behind the deck. Token strategies are always a great way to make a casual deck that can scale to be for optimized. I love the afterlife keyword as it lends itself to this optimization really well. But there were several less-than-savory card choices in here. The two biggest issues that I saw are ones that I see a lot (and full into too). The first of these is that many cards have a very high cost-to-value ratio. That is, there were several cards that cost too much (mana) and do too little for it. Elgaud Inquisitor is a fantastic example. While Elgaud Inquisitor is on-theme with their on-death triggered ability, that is all they have going for them. The lifelink isn't super useful, and the CMC is WAY too high. They are only a 2/2 too boot. Second off, theme isn't the same as function. I understand that there is a vorthos element to this deck, but since this deck isn't a full tribal deck, I think it's better to focus on ways to make the good parts of the theme work great.

I saw lots of cards that were life gaining cards ( Pontiff of Blight , Impassioned Orator , Riot Control , etc). This deck can make a lot of tokens which Tesya gives lifelink. You need not worry about life gain card. The strength of your creatures that make tokens when they die is that you can easily recur them in W/B. In the lists below, there are many cards that give added value to dying creature or make killing your creatures more ways to die. Lastly and most importantly, you had ZERO ramp and ALMOST NO card draw. THESE ARE THE TWO MOST FUNDAMENTAL ASSPECTS IN EDH!!! You NEED to have them!!! You can not rely solely on the one land drop and card draw. I've listed several cards that assist the main strategy and draw you cards (things like Dredge and Altar's Reap ). As for ramp, there is almost no good ramp outside of green. That only means that you have to look harder. Mana rocks are a must. I only have three in the lists, but they are absolute must-haves. Next, I put in several cards that give you mana in other ways. Most of them align themselves with the main strategy ( Ashnod's Altar , Soldevi Adnate , and Pawn of Ulamog to name a few). Similarly, I added cards that draw you cards from creatures dying. There is one card that I would like to point out in particular, Erebos . The important part of Erebos is his last ability. You pay and 2 life to draw a card. Life is a resource, and you'll be making plenty of it. Be sure to spend it. There are lots of cards that help you turn life into various things, like Bolas's Citadel (which I almost put in and still think has a place here). I would encourage you to look into them. Lastly, I would remove 6 lands. You have other ramp now and don't want to be flooded all of the time.

Here is the list of cards that I would remove:

I understand that there is a budget to this deck, so I've split my suggestions into two lists. The first is all cards that are cheap and should keep you under budget. The second list of cards is for later edits. If you want to spend more money on this deck, those are the cards that I would recommend buying.

As you're read through these, you might notice that a lot of these came from your sideboard. There are lots of good cards in there.

I hope you enjoy these changes. Just remember that casual decks don't have to be un-optimized.

Ripwater on "Marked For Death" - Teysa, Orzhov Scion

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

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with everyone safely (yes, even that 0/1, why not), untap each creature at the most opportune time for pseudo vigilance, and still deal combat damage in most situations.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (obvious face value of the card), it untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt (great for getting +1+1 counters from Drana, Liberator of Malakir to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step). I'd replace Cathar's Crusade, it does nothing for your current board, cost a ton of mana in aggro, and requires gas to get it to do anything.

As far as the decks inherent card draw weakness goes, consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Necropotence .

Austere Command , Oversold Cemetery , and Diabolic Intent are all worth considering also.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration, it's one of the top rated Edgar lists on the entire site. There's also over 130 comments worth of feedback and suggestions to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

P.s. you have Stromkirk Noble in here twice.

This combination of full tilt aggro with everyone available to block makes Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 really good here (note: 'until your next turn') and it more than offsets a few of my next suggestions.

As far as the decks inherent card draw weakness goes... get Skullclamp in here then consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , Twilight Prophet , and Necropotence . Protecting your board also prevents topdeck mode get Boros Charm in here.

Austere Command , Cover of Darkness , Oversold Cemetery , and Diabolic Intent are all worth considering also.
