Something I would suggest: Revenge of Ravens. It does the same thing as blood reckoning, but you gain a life for each attacker on top of the life loss. That being said, nice deck.

Hey first thanks for your comment. from my experience you rarely get attacked, if thantis is out, they are scared to make it even stronger and attacking me with these 1/1 tokens is a bad move because of cards like Revenge of Ravens.
You are right the karoo lands are bad, you think i should run myirad landscapeMyriad Landscape and some more basics? the filter lands and even sylvan library are out of my budget sadly. i luckily got my hands on the shocks.
I think i will run gaze of granite instead of decimate, totally forgot about this card. i will try again phyrexian arena, but wasnt impressed last time i used it. will try rhythm of the wild too, lets see how it works. steel hellkite would be a great addition but i dont like this card flavor wise.

okay firstly add a Mountain to your land base, it allows you to get a red source out of your deck with Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse cut a swamp for it because your land count is perfectly fine for an aggro deck now let's get to the meat of the feast I would cut Zombify for Tortured Existence you only get a mana discount for 8 of the cards in your deck and the repeatability is much better. Sign in Blood should be replaced with Read the Bones digs deeper for 1 more mana. cut Hierophant's Chalice for Heraldic Banner. cut Sorin, Vampire Lord for Ob Nixilis Reignited, and if you cut that one you should cut Sorin's Guide which should be replaced with Cordial Vampire. if you can swing it Captivating Vampire is very good and I can guarantee it will make the deck much better. Bladebrand out for Champion of Dusk super strong and could help you win the game. cut Vampire Neonate for Indulgent Aristocrat. Breaking Point out for Underworld Connections repeatable card advantage. Ill-Gotten Inheritance out for Dark Tutelage again repeatable card draw. Revenge of Ravens out for Bad Moon. and lastly Tribute to Hunger out for Intangible Virtue.
now these are all suggestions and they are just a start, and I tried to keep all the cards around a buck or less besides Captivating Vampire

That is very mean. I like it. Maybe try adding something like Ghostly Prison or Revenge of Ravens to keep you alive until you can fire off the combo. Chandra, Awakened Inferno could provide a way to deal damage that doesn't depend on you doing anything- if you can give an opponent 2 of the emblems and delay the game for a bit, you should win pretty easily. And, unlike the burn spells you have, she is uncounterable.

I would personally cut Pacifism for Glorious Anthem if there is one guy with some beater swinging at you there are better options not to mention your tokens most likely can chump block it. I would also cut Revenge of Ravens for Anointed Procession the token generation is much more feasible but this also varies by your playgroup, do you have 1 or 2 players who consistently swing ith 3+ creatures every turn? It might be worth to keep but this card is really only good against those players. In my own playtesting I have found Mace of the Valiant to be unreliable and also doesn't do anything the turn it is put on the field because of that I would recommend cutting it and replacing with Divine Visitation. As for Idyllic Tutor a good cut would be Winged Words they are about the same mana cost but where winged words draws you two cards idyllic tutor grabs that EXACT enchantment you need.

Ah, what is there to dislike about life gain? The deck looks sweet, however, I do have some suggestions.
Whilst Exstort is a lovely mechanic, I feel as if many of these creatures are lacking. Basilica Guards, Kingpin's Pet, Knight of Obligation, Thrull Parasite, and Syndicate Enforcer all just have egregious stats. Similarly, Resplendent Mentor is a five Mana 2/2 that doesn't do something immediately unless you have a board state.
Armillary Sphere doesn't do much. You probably prefer to cast your commander than paying four and finding two basics.
That's all from me. Good luck!

So, what do you mean by "centered around Teysa"? If you want to work with her protection from creatures part, you probably want to build this like a voltron commander deck and run stuff like Lightning Greaves or Shadowspear to give it hexproof, then have some enchantments or equipment to pump it. If you're going with her ability to destroy creatures, maybe a deck that forces your opponent to attack and punishes them for it? Revenge of Ravens, The Akroan War, etc. maybe? If you just want a random BW deck there's a lot more competitive ways to build it, but I'm guessing you're going for cheap/fun, in which case I would try the force attack angle, but it's your choice. Let me know what you want to do, and I can look into ways to streamline the deck from there.
