greyninja on Tymna & Kraum: three heads are better than one!

Thank you AleCarbo98! I appreciate your comment and upvote!

What's funny is that I did have Tidehollow Sculler and Sin Collector in my original list! Controlling abilities that leave behind a body can be very powerful

Ultimately I couldn't tell if they made enough impact in a multiplayer setting. Usually I'd make them toss away a boardwipe or combo piece; but then that person might focus solely on you because they were singled out

If I take this to french 1v1 I'll absolutely run all three. They hurt much more with only one opponent. I'll need to get my hands on a v.clique at some point lol cheers!

Really good deck! +1

Playing aggro i think that you need to know your opponent's hand, so i suggest you discard creatures like Tidehollow Sculler, Sin Collector and Vendilion Clique to discarding his resources and at the same time putting creatures on the board.

I hope I was helpful.

First off, nice to see you again. Second, I figured I would have to address all these issues again. I know that the CMC is heavy, it was before I had to rebuild the deck. I totally forgot about Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so that will be something to go in. If somebody is giving me trouble then Vizkopa Confessor and Sin Collector can take care of some of their key cards (looking at you combo and control players). Revenant Patriarch may seem underwhelming, but it has really helped me before. Once when I used it against an Aurelia, the Warleader voltron deck I was able to buy some time so I could ult my Liliana Vess to take them out. Agent of Masks and Yahenni, Undying Partisan seem underwhelming, but they work great with the other cards in the deck.

Thanks for the help!

One thing that really stood out to me was that the average CMC is ~4, and there are only 4 ramp cards. That's higher than my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck and it has plenty of high-CMC bombs!

There aren't too many options for ramp in BW, but you'll find plenty of ramp in black. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers go together amazingly. Basalt Monolith is a nice, quick 3 mana. Orzhov Cluestone, Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone and Hedron Archive all provide ramp early game, and can be cracked for draws late game.

As for cuts, I'd recommend Vizkopa Confessor and Sin Collector since single player discard is low-impact in multiplayer games. Agent of Masks, Yahenni, and Revenant Patriarch are either mediocre or don't really follow the deck's game plan.

Hope this helps!

Oh, sorry yugo0075! I didn't see your comment. I think that that is certainly true, but I think the reason Kitesail Freebooter works well enough in humans is because it is a human - the creature type matters a great deal. It growing other creatures and getting larger itself with no added mana investment is the reason Kitesail Freebooter performs so well in that deck. While I know that you suggest it in addition to Tidehollow Sculler, the difference between the two is rather great in this build. Tidehollow Sculler can be flickered in response to its ETB trigger to permanently exile something from your opponent's hand and then take something else afterwards normally, meaning that in the late game you can milk value from it, something that you can't really do with Kitesail Freebooter. Tidehollow also has a different, more broken way the card is structured/worded. If I play Tidehollow Sculler and my opponent wants to remove it in response to the ETB, whatever I select from their hand gets permanently exiled because the leave the battlefield trigger is triggered before the card is exiled. With Kitesail Freebooter, you can kill it in response and all you get to do is look at their hand. Lastly, and probably most importantly, Tidehollow Sculler hits all nonlands, so creatures are getting hit as well which is super important, while Kitesail is limited being a Duress on a stick. What I like out of the sideboard for these matchups is the Sin Collector which gives a similar, more permanent effect that is reusable with flickers (albeit doesn't deal with Lingering Souls as well or lower my curve). I have been considering putting another in the sideboard or moving it from the sideboard into the mainboard in place of the Blade Splicer. Thanks for the comments, let me know if I missed something!

While they would be pretty decent in the deck it's just not something I really want to do. I had Grave Betrayal in here and was thnking about Dictate of Erebos at one point, but decided to cut in favor of Grave Betrayal. I'll think about your suggestion though!


I agree! Teysa decks are strange, especially the ones where the other Teysa is at the helm. I know that the deck is a little cmc heavy, but I've had games where I couldn't play something until like turn 6. However, with so much mana open people weren't really attacking me for fear of removal.

As for your suggestions those cards have been working for me fine. For example: Revenant Patriarch did awesome against an Aurelia voltron deck, and Sin Collector and Vizkopa Confessor can be really detrimental to a control player (or anyone who I feel is getting too powerful).

Thanks for the suggestions!

Hooray for a Teysa deck that actually feels Orzhov-y! Too many Teysa (especially the other Teysa) end up feeling like some strange Izzet contraption. This deck feels like an Orzhov deck should, and I like that about it.

However, my biggest complaint against the deck is how mana-hungry it is. With an average CMC of over 4 and a commander that costs a whopping 7, I'd really consider running more ramp/lands. Beckon Apparition, for example, can be cut for something like Vessel of Endless Rest, which will still annoy your reanimator opponents, while generating mana for you to use.

Revenant Patriarch should probably be a Kami of False Hope, which is cheaper and easier to recur, since it puts itself into the graveyard for you.

Souls of the Faultless looks like it would be good, but seems like it will get ignored without flying or reach.

Personally, the fact that Sin Collector and Vizkopa Confessor only target one opponent makes me usually want to cut them, because in a typical 4 player game, your average opponent has lost 1/3 of a card, and you've used 1. But if your playgroup is typically on the smaller side, or you know you have problems with a specific combo deck, then they can be used, but Sadistic Sacrament is probably better at that effect.

Lastly, I'll give a shout-out to one of my favorite cards, Martyr's Bond. It's Grave Pact, but for nonland permanents!
