Sigarda's Aid Discussion
1 day ago
Not sure I really see the "combat" portion of your deck. You are only running 8 creatures other than you commander. Has it worked out okay to be that light on creatures? I've been afraid to run that few creature in a deck and would love your input. I would figure you have to wrath a lot to not look wide open.
If you find that you need more creatures try out a few of these: Leonin Shikari is Lightning Greaves best friend. Auriok Windwalker is also useful here. Puresteel Paladin and Sram, Senior Edificer love all the equipment goodness you have going on; more card draw. Kemba, Kha Regent , you haz jewelry? I make mor katz.
Another card to think about is Gleam of Authority . A friend of mine had a lot of success using that with your commander. They just had to be careful about when to tap and remove hexproof.
I'm not really sure what cards to suggest cutting, but if you are looking to make changes it is probably to remove some of the universal vigilance. I think you have that ability in a lot of equipments already so you may not need that Brave the Sands and Always Watching package.
Sigarda's Aid is a great card and it helps you get around the equipment costs. I do love the double strike and unblockable package you have going here. I like to Venser, the Sojourner when I get ready to alpha strike.

the_odysseus thanks for the suggestions! I won't disagree with you on most of these (especially Phyrexian Altar , which I totally need to add), except to say that I don't really claim to be THE ideal way to build Teshar, or indeed a final product. It's very much a work in progress as I try to fine-tune the gears that make it work, as it were, which is fun for me. Martyr's Bond I could see being good in a less combo-focused, more value-oriented build of Teshar that tries to play the long game, but in my version I'm more interested in just stalling and discouraging people from hurting me than actively going after them like that. As far as I can tell Sigarda's Aid would only help me combo at instant speed with Bone Saw because you can't use the others' sac triggers at instant speed anyway, right? I've considered Shimmer Myr though. And I don't have that many of them anyway. I'm not a huge fan of non-repeatable one-shots like Silence , and initially had Grand Abolisher in the deck until I realized that most of the time I drew it, it was a dead card that I never felt I needed to protect my combos. The point of the combos and the deck is that it's so redundant that you can always recur things that get blown up or just restart the machine with a different gear.
I know it seems like sacrilege to skip Enlightened Tutor , but that's a recent subtraction actually. I realized that I only had one enchantment in my deck to search and only ended up getting artifacts that I probably could have gotten anyway through comparable draws, so I decided to cut it in favor of additional sac outlets and see how things worked out. If I decide I want it again, I'll add it back in. And like I said before, non-repeatable one-shots are something I try to avoid in this deck, so Stoneforge Mystic seems to trump Steelshaper's Gift for now.
Aven Mindcensor and Ghostly Prison are indeed good, but neither does much to help my combos and as I said with Martyr's Bond , I think they have a place in a more value-focused, less combo-oriented version of Teshar. I also didn't feel the Soul Sisters were needed if I had Aetherflux Reservoir because it's even a bit more versatile while accomplishing the same thing and being a win-con.
I personally feel Winter Orb is a little too unfun, even for me, but I'll admit it probably would be a good choice--although it makes me uncomfortable that it slows me down too. Lastly, Academy Rector is a card I've always felt was more like a one-shot than repeatable value, and plus you can't bring him back with Teshar anyway, thus his exclusion.
In summary, I don't think you're wrong about any of these suggestions--I'm just not sure some of them fit well in this sort of deck, necessarily. But I could be wrong, and I should probably try them out! Like I said, work in progress here. Hope I made some kind of sense. Thanks!

Martyr's Bond ? Sigarda's Aid seems good, allowing you to combo at instant speed. Grand Abolisher and Silence help protect you while comboing off, and Soul Warden or Soul's Attendant gains you infinite life with infinite etb's. Some stax pieces like Winter Orb might help slow down the game while you wait to combo off, and Aven Mindcensor is quite good. Academy Rector might be outside of your budget, but it can get you your sacrifice outlet enchantments. Ghostly Prison is good. Lastly, Phyrexian Altar is relatively cheap now.

If going for the voltron route, would highly recommend using cards like Shielding Plax , Curator's Ward , Vanishing , or Flickering Ward for protection. Sigarda's Aid is also amazing to cantrip off every players turn to get that constant card advantage. Sram, Senior Edificer and Argothian Enchantress are two other enchantress for the 2 cmc slot that can be considered.
Feel free to take a look at my brew as well for more ideas!

Great to see another Tuvasa player, I am definitely a fan of her! She is slowly creeping up to be one of the most entertaining decks to play!
Some cards I would recommend off the bat are Mystic Remora , Shielding Plax , Pemmin's Aura , and Vanishing . The biggest thing about Tuvasa is the need to protect her, after that it's all about the card advantage she gives. So cards like Sigarda's Aid is a real gem, if you can afford it I would also recommend considering Leyline of Anticipation as flashing in cards at all turn makes full use of Tuvasa's ability.
Lastly one great card to run for constant proc is Flickering Ward , in conjunction with any of our flash effects she does so much and can draw and protect as well.
If you want to gather some more ideas here is my curent decklist:

Like the deck +1 from me.
Staff of Nin is good for the extra card draw.
