Tainted Field Discussion

Hey, this is a very cheap deck. Are you not able to spend a little more? A $20 upgrade could really help your deck.

Even though have a low budget to work with there's still several upgrades you could make. Some upgrades to consider are to take more advantage of Teysa's ability to give you additional die triggers when a creature dies.

Good budget cards, $1 or less each, to consider adding:

I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.

Hey, I like your version of Athreos and it has a much higher budget than your Niv deck, nice Scrubland :) There's not a lot of versions of Athroes yet to compare too, but there's some really good interactions here especially Nightmare Shepherd and Mangara of Corondor.

Puppeteer Clique can steal an opponents creature from their graveyard, attack with that creature, at your end step stack the triggers to first put a coin counter on that creature then exile it, returning it to the battlefield under your control.

Eldrazi Displacer can be repeatable exile of opponents creatures for three mana. Steal any opponents creature at your end step at instant speed after you put a coin counter on that creature. Displacer would require more colorless mana sources from lands and mana rocks: Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Talisman of Hierarchy, Mind Stone, Tainted Field, Esper Panorama, Ash Barrens. Displacer can also protect you from an opponent creature attacking you since if you blink an attacking creature it will leave combat and ETB tapped. Can also use the blink with politics.

Plaguecrafter and Fleshbag Marauder are powerful creatures in multiplayer Commander who can sac themselves or another creature you control who may have a coin counter. These creatures are good with Mimic Vat which would give you a repeatable creature at instant speed who can make all your opponents sac a creature. Vat can pair nicely with many board wipes since you can imprint an opponents creature.

Good luck with your deck.

I know it's minor, but I like two-drop mana rocks over three-drops when I can get them-- Talisman of Hierarchy and Orzhov Signet and Star Compass. Bontu's Monument is kind of like ramp for your black creatures and also gives you incidental life gain/drain.

Bojuka Bog is a nice graveyard-hate piece with little downside and Tainted Field comes in untapped and will usually give you colored mana. Caves of Koilos is also nice coming in untapped and Silent Clearing gives you the option for card draw when you need it.

Working in some on-theme card draw will help you find your threats and answers. Dawn of Hope synergizes nicely with what you're doing. Icon of Ancestry is pseudo-card draw that buffs your creatures. With all the life you're gaining, Underworld Connections is a nice source of card draw that doesn't really hurt. I also like Marchesa's Decree since you're already running enchantments to discourage your opponents from attacking you and the monarch is a fun mechanic.

Anything that lets you get more activations out of your commander or protect your commander--Illusionist's Bracers, Swiftfoot Boots (to use her when she comes out), and Etchings of the Chosen.

Settle the Wreckage and Kaya's Wrath are some efficiently-costed wraths if you must wipe the board.

Triskaidekaphobia could be an interesting alternate win-condition.

Suggested cuts: Arvad is kind of expensive and has payoffs with only 4 cards in your deck (including the commander) Cast Down doesn't let you deal with your opponents' commanders. Life gain that doesn't do anything but gain life like Sanguine Sacrament and Beacon of Immortality. Impale (Murder is cheaper, Mortify is more versatile, exile effects might even be more efficient)

Meachman on Ghave Breaks the Board (Not the Bank)

Nice budget lands in the colors include Tainted Field and Tainted Wood which have a nice upside of coming in untapped.

Unbreakable Formation is nice protection that can sometimes synergize with your counters. Maybe Shalai, Voice of Plenty helps, too?

jakaeser on Mardu EDH Test (Cheap)

Here's a some more staple cards you should consider:

Removal

  • Vandalblast is arguably the best artifact board wipe in the game.
  • Blasphemous Act is a must-run in any red deck. It's red's best board wipe, hands down.
  • Bedevil has a very specific casting cost, but the payoff is its flexibility.
  • Rakdos Charm – never leave home without it. Modal graveyard hate, the ability to really mess up a token swarm deck, and at worst targeted artifact removal is too good not to run.
  • Darksteel Mutation to make their commander a bug.

Lands

Ramp

Other

  • Goblin Bombardment is one of my favoritest free sacrifice outlets. Sac outlets are way more flexible than you'd think – someone going to blow up your board? Make them eat however much damage. They want to steal a creature? How about no. Someone plays something like Imprisoned in the Moon on Alesha? Sac her first before she's a land forever more.
  • You could also consider blink effects like Ephemerate and Eerie Interlude as multi-function board protection and ETB abuse.

I'm sure I'll be back with more recommendations later ;)

Hey, nice budget version of Teysa.

Cards to consider adding:

Consider more ways to take advantage of Reveillark, Karmic Guide and Sun Titan? Altar of Dementia + Lark + Guide is infinite opponent mill combo that doesn't require an aristocrat to potentially win. Mill all your opponents or self-mill yourself until you find an aristocrat to win since you can reanimate it with Lark.

Lark + Guide + Blood Artist + Viscera Seer is one of the best Orzhov aristocrat combos and Buried Alive can tutor for and set up this combo by putting three of the creatures into your graveyard to reanimate them with Lark. Animate Dead + Leonin Relic-Warder + Artist is another powerful aristocrat combo. Warder enchanted by Animate creates a loop of Warder dying.

Fiend Hunter combos with one of Lark, Guide or Sun Titan since it can exile your own creature. Add a sac outlet and aristocrat to create a dying loop of Hunter. Animate Dead and Angelic Renewal are good with Sun Titan since Titan can reanimate them. Titan + Renewal is a combo with a sac outlet and aristocrat to create a dying loop of Titan. Open the Armory can tutor for Skullclamp or Animate Dead.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Ravos/Tymna commander

Hey, since your deck is low budget consider adding more cards to take advantage of your best card? Your best card is Tymna :)

You have the right idea with wanting to add Kunoros and Kambal. Kunoros because of menace evasion, lifelink and it's a hatebear. Kambal because he can be a repeatable source of life gain. With Tymna you want more creatures who have evasion so they can more easily do combat damage.

White has many good budget flying creatures. Hatebears who fly and can also disrupt your opponents are good in multiplayer Commander: Aven Mindcensor, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Hushbringer, Tomik, Distinguished Advokist, Archon of Absolution. Flying creatures who can create flying tokens: Emeria Angel, Archon of Sun's Grace can be repeatable sources of flying creatures. You also want more repeatable sources of life gain to safely keep triggering Tymna: Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Wingmate Roc, Answered Prayers.

Cards that create flying tokens are nice to go wide which helps to attack more than one opponent. Spirit Bonds and Sacred Mesa can be repeatable source of flying tokens. Lingering Souls, Spectral Procession, Battle Screech, Midnight Haunting create flying tokens. Entreat the Angels can create a lot of 4/4 Angels. With more creatures with flying then you can play Sephara, Sky's Blade who has a powerful effect for flying creatures, has lifelink and other flying creatures reduce her casting cost.

Other budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:

I offer more advice including what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice budget version of Teysa.

Karmic Guide and Reveillark are excellent with the Aristocrat strategy. They can reanimate each other and with a sac outlet they make a dying loop with each other. This loop also lets you reanimate all the 2 or less power creatures in your graveyard with Lark. Adding an aristocrat before or reanimating one during the loop can be a win condition.

Lark triggers Teysa when it leaves the battlefield, if it left the battlefield as a result of it dying, letting you reanimate four creatures. Even without Guide Lark is worth adding because of the interaction with Teysa.

Buried Alive and Final Parting are budget tutors that can setup this interaction. Altar of Dementia is a two drop budget sac outlet that can infinite mill your opponents with Guide + Lark. Or use Dementia in combination with Guide + Lark to self-mill yourself until you mill an aristocrat to reanimate with Lark.

Caves of Koilos , Isolated Chapel , Tainted Field , Ash Barrens , Esper Panorama , Orzhov Basilica are budget Orzhov lands to consider adding.

Good luck with your deck.
