Phyrexian Reclamation Discussion
1 week ago
Heya lorre, looks pretty good! I been helping my friend tune their Teysa deck, and Phyrexian Reclamation should be added in as well as possibly more tutors for Skull Clamp. Having access to Skull Clamp or a draw engine is essential for Teysa to get her working smoothly~
I would recommend cutting Priest of Forgotten Gods being cut for Reclamation, as she was always a bit too slow in play testing and a dead card when it matters.
Just some thoughts after playing some games last night as I haven't updated my Teysa list since the official release date :3

Argivian Find , Auramancer , Restoration Specialist . Auramancer and Specialist don't have to tap to recur and are good with creature reanimation/recursion such as Reveillark , Sun Titan , Phyrexian Reclamation , etc. Sun Titan can reanimate 3 CMC or less enchantments.

Mox Amber might be a little tricky, but most of the time your commander is easily cast and it will provide 1 mana. I think it maybe needs a bit of playtesting to see if it works out.
Yeah if you play enough lords then a akromas memorial is the better option. Also Coat of Arms you only want to play when you go really really wide, like krenko does. Other than that I think its too big of a risk. Better option is Eldrazi Monument I think, cause saccing a dude wont hurt you that much!

Drtongue Yeah that would work with Teysa out as a budget board-wipe, but there are better options that don't require Teysa on board. I'd rather play basic white wraths since they're unconditional, but Night Incarnate does work with Phyrexian Reclamation so there's that.

In regards for tuning for competitive play, if going all out the fast efficient mana rocks. The standard usual Mana Crypt , Mox Diamond , Chrome Mox , Sol Ring , Mana Vault should be included. All tutors for consistency ex. Vampiric Tutor , Demonic Tutor , Diabolic Intent , Imperial Seal , Grim Tutor , Enlightened Tutor , Worldly Tutor , and I would also include Idyllic Tutor .
Next would be your main avenue for balancing your combo pieces. You need the life gain, so running all your soul sister effects are priority. I would run pretty much only the one drop ex. Soul Warden , Essence Warden , Soul's Attendant , and Deathgreeter . Both Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat doubles as your win cons when you have every thing set up. You also need to set up ways to proc Ghave when your Carnival is on the field so in goes Ivy Lane Denizen , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Juniper Order Ranger , and Champion of Lambholt . All of these ones can lead to infinite triggers and than infinite tokens.
Card draw is fairly important, so the usual engines are in ex. Sylvan Library and Necropotence . With having non-token creatures dying, you have them listed but they will also go in, ex. Midnight Reaper and Dark Prophecy . Dark Confidant will also go in with the low CMC curve. Skullclamp will also be an outlet for you as well to draw out your whole deck. You can test it out but Mentor of the Meek can be an outlet as well.
Protection for your combo pieces are important. Riftsweeper should be included and Pull from Eternity only if you are dealing with a lot of exile effects. Silence has always been super helpful, and since there will be a lot of enchantment type effects you can consider running Greater Auramancy in conjunction with Sterling Grove . Sterling Grove also helps tutor for Carnival when needed.
The rest of the cards can be filled with either similar effects, interaction, or advantage.
Now going for your "Carousel" effect with Athreos. For this you would have to go with the infinite mana route, I would be adverse in going this route as it dilutes too much of the "Carnival" route. With the infinite mana you would need to add in cards like Phyrexian Altar , Ashnod's Altar , or Earthcraft in order for you to gain infinite mana. With that as well you need cards that will bring your creatures back to the battlefield or hand, so Phyrexian Reclamation , Corpse Dance , Disturbed Burial can be considered.
There can be probably more things I can think of but accept this short response before I take a more indepth look at it when I not sleepy lolol

Holy, bushido_man96... Aluren is wild! I’m running almost all creatures 3 and under then have Phyrexian Reclamation and was looking at adding Athreos, God of Passage into my cEDH version. I’ve played a game where I had Dark Prophecy and Viscera Seer plus Teysa Karlov on the battlefield... in a deck with 33 low cmc creatures... this is nuts! Gold nuts!

Great deck! Definitely a showstopper.
While running Rooftop Storm and your general zombie theme.. would it be more beneficial to have Sidisi, Undead Vizier instead of Rune-Scarred Demon ? Adding a Phyrexian Reclamation to those two allows for repeatable Demonic Tutor with 2 life each.
