Suggested card replacements!

maybe cut 2 mana rocks in addition to the earlier notes I provided.

Thought Vessel --> Loxodon Warhammer

Worn Powerstone --> Gut Shot

The warhammer gives lifelink, super! Gut shot is nice cause you can fix your life total before switching 1, point for casting or 2, or 3 points if you target yourself for free.

Suture Priest --> Wall of Shards

Same drop slot and you stop opponents being able to manipulate their own life total by playing creatures.

Fireball --> Electrodominance

One more mana, and you get to cheat out Triskaidekaphobia or Axis of Mortality at instant speed.

Ill-Gotten Inheritance --> Necrologia

Too slow, and necrologia lets you draw a bunch of cards.

Marchesa's Decree --> Blood Celebrant

Again, you don't want them to fix their own life total themselves. Blood celebrant lets you fix your own and fixes mana, so good.

Syphon Mind --> Vexing Devil

I know you like the multiplayer discard, but I think vexing devil is better in this slot.

Swords to Plowshares --> Snuff Out

This is really up to you, I like the idea of trading life for creature removal but your mileage may vary.

Akroma's Vengeance --> Return to Dust

You run way too many tech enchantments that you want to be able to get back.

Chainer's Torment --> Restoration Specialist

not worth the life you put into it. Rootborn Defenses --> Unbreakable Formation

Just a strict upgrade IMO.

Lands:

Tainted Field Tainted Peak Spinerock Knoll Battlefield Forge Caves of Koilos Sulfurous Springs Mistveil Plains

cut basics? I like them because you can bring your life down, fix mana, cheat things out, and get instants back into your deck...

Changes Out Agent of Erebos - other ways to remove cards from graves. Crystal Chimes - to 1 sided Sengir Nosferatu - out Suture Priest - good but gives a market on your head early on. Thespian's Stage - out for Swamp.

In Teysa Karlov - tokens love this Revival / Revenge - handy Ethereal Absolution - removal from graves, good buff Smothering Tithe - awesome Swamp - back to basic

To try Kambal, Consul of Allocation

I feel as if you should move Ghoulcaller Gisa from the side board and consider Elenda, the Dusk Rose especially if you add the pact effects.

I recommend cards like Sheoldred, Whispering One or Sun Titan over Reya Dawnbringer .

If you're looking for more token cards I'd suggest things like Spirit Bonds , Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Ophiomancer , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Secure the Wastes , etc.

If you want some other win cons I'd consider: Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Pontiff of Blight , Cathars' Crusade , etc.

If you want to ramp up your ability to control the board cards like Meekstone do the trick

Useful utility cards: Phyrexian Reclamation , Dawn of Hope , Crypt Ghast , Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , Mentor of the Meek , Suture Priest , etc.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is another sac option

Hey, I suggest including a significant life gain theme or change to Azorius or Esper Commander. You say you don't want to play life gain, but the problem is your playing Orzhov which is the guild that does life gain as a strategy very well. To use Teysa to make Spirits like you're wanting to do you have to take a lot of combat damage (life loss) from your opponent's creatures. You want life gain to offset the damage you're taking to make Spirits. Without having a lot of life gain it's difficult take advantage of making Spirits with Teysa. Orzhov is really a guild about life gain, using life as a resource and sacrifice; these are the three strategies that have the most support.

Cards to consider adding:

Most of my suggestions are for life gain, but most of them can benefit from tokens or tokens can benefit from them.


Instead of Orzhov with Teysa as Commander for Spirits consider Azorius with Geist of Saint Traft or Brago, King Eternal as Commander? Both Traft and Brago are more expensive price than Teysa, especially Traft, but they're Spirits. Having access to blue is great if Spirits are the theme you're going for. White gives you the Spirit token theme and blue gives you Spirit Lords; who can pump up all your Spirits and/or give them other abilities:

These are the tribal payoffs in blue for Spirits. Black has a few really good Spirits (Karlov, Bloodghast, Ghast, Lingering, Divinity, Obzedat), but there's no payoffs for playing actual Spirits like what blue has.

Another option is Esper with Oloro, Ageless Ascetic as Commander. Esper gives you the good Orzhov Spirits and Azorius gives you the Spirit Lords as well as a life gain Commander to take advantage of Orzhov strategies.

Good luck with your deck.

Athreos is not usually a life gain sort of commander, but its your deck. Here are some cheap suggestions for life gain sort of things:

Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood combo (exquisite is expensive)

Killing Wave this is a very interesting card. only really good in Athreos, as they have to lose life to keep what they want then potentially lose more to keep your creatures in the grave.

Vizkopa Guildmage

Felidar Sovereign good meme

Divinity of Pride

Debt to the Deathless

Authority of the Consuls

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant or Suture Priest

Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat

Sorin, Grim Nemesis

all of these are solid options

as for expensive cards ill only say 2:

Archangel of Thune

Serra Ascendant

woooo
