Whenever you cast a historic spell, return target creature card with converted mana cost 3 or less from your graveyard to the battlefield. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)

Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle Discussion

Zoetic Cavern can replace Mistveil Plains to save about $2. Hall of Triumph instead of Altar of the Brood for another few dollars savings. I'm not sure what the incidental milling Altar of the Brood really does for this deck, plus it may end up making you a target with the table hate. Sublime Archangel could be replaced with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle to save another few and allow you to recur a few dead ETB creatures and trigger a few more zombies.

That's all I found in a short time, let me know what you think, should cut about $6-8

Alright so this is where things get difficult lol. Right now the deck has some semblance of agro and control but its currently being bogged down by things that don’t contribute anything or enough to warrant their spot. I’m going to suggest a lot of cuts and for each one I’ll offer a decent replacement that will not only make all of our lives miserable but also contribute to making the deck far more resilient and difficult to stop. Creatures to cut

Creatures to Add

Noncreature Spells to Cut

Noncreature Spells to Add

Now what these additions will do is smooth out your mana curve and make you come out swinging far more quickly in more consistently. The additions include another outlet to go infinite through Sword of Feast and Famine and Aggravated Assault . They also contain multiple ways to tutor up Helm of the Host and win. Combat Celebrant and Godo, Bandit Warlord each go infinite with helm and Godo will tutor for it himself and place it straight onto the battlefield.

We also tighten up your control package with cheap removal and creatures that limit what you’re opponents can do. I can provide more explanations in person if you like.

Remember these are only suggestions lol But if you try them I think you’ll like how much faster the deck pops off.

NoNeedToBragoBoutIt on Teshar - Weenie Apostle

Thanks a lot for your kind words and freaking 12 upvotes VietMoneys, i'm flattered!

I get your curiosity about sac outlets, the problem is as follows:

a.) Mono- doesn't come with a lot of free sac outlets - if you have any others, i'd be more than happy to hear about them (if they qualify considering b.). Currently i'm considering Altar of Dementia , due to the fact it can fill my gy and double as top deck-tutor disruption.

b.) My playgroup frowns upon infinites (i'm cool with that) and both Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar combo waaay too easily. With this type of deck it's more or less impossible to avoid all combos (e.g. more than 1 -artifact + etb/die recursion/bounce option + free sac outlet + a value engine, say Cathars' Crusade ) but i try to avoid them enough not to look like bending our house rules on purpose.

Karmic Guide + Reveillark are similarily problematic as described under b.) when combined with a free sac outlet. Plus, they don't qualify to be recurred with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle . The only exception to said parameter right now is Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite because she's a great non-infinite win con. I'd like to keep it that way.

Sun Titan is a nuts card, yet in this deck he's easily outclassed by the 10-ish recursing/bounce effects due to the simple fact i'm not blinking, i'm recasting things. For a total of i can usually recurr twice. Plus, he can't be reanimated by my commander.

You'd be surprised how well this deck actually works without its commander, because of the extreme redundancy of engines. Typically i start flooding the board until the setup is right to drop my commander. Significantly later than i planned when brewing the deck.

Anyhow, thanks again for the input, i'd be more than happy to hear about your feedback on my other decks. I'll have a go at yours, for sure.

Keep brewin'!

Have you thought about any sort of legends matter cards in here? I can see Urza's Ruinous Blast , Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , Blackblade Reforged , Thran Temporal Gateway , Jhoira's Familiar , or maybe even Traxos, Scourge of Kroog . I know these are a bit slow for what you're going for but they are some fun things to think on.

Ripwater on Orzhov Legendary

Have you considered Arvad the Cursed ? I might even play him as your commander, since he gives an anthem effect (+2/+2) and drop Athreos in the 99. Honestly Atreos shines when he protects low CMC creatures. I don't think you will find a lot of people not paying the 3 life when 1 of your, often very powerfull, creatures dies. Next to that you play black and have a range of (under $9) tutors to fetch him.

You could throw in a little token/lifegain theme as support (very Orzhov) and play your deck as the guild extorting people and if they don't pay up exile their creatures. (Then Atreos might be super on theme again).

Legendaries I would run in a token/lifegain theme are: Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim Teysa, Orzhov Scion Karlov of the Ghost Council Kambal, Consul of Allocation Obzedat, Ghost Council Teysa Karlov Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts Regna, the Redeemer / Krav, the Unredeemed Ghost Council of Orzhova Vona, Butcher of Magan Aryel, Knight of Windgrace Elenda, the Dusk Rose Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder Yomiji, Who Bars the Way Whisper, Blood Liturgist Darien, King of Kjeldor Heliod, God of the Sun Brimaz, King of Oreskos Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle Oketra the True Elspeth, Sun's Champion Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Kaya, Orzhov Usurper Eight-and-a-Half-Tails

Support these guys with the following cards: Soul's Attendant Soul Warden Dictate of Erebos Grave Pact Smothering Tithe Ethereal Absolution Dawn of Hope Skullclamp Suture Priest Blood Artist Zulaport Cutthroat Crested Sunmare Regal Bloodlord Pious Evangel  Flip Authority of the Consuls Blind Obedience Anointed Procession Hidden Stockpile Vindictive Vampire Twilight Drover Mentor of the Meek Priest of Forgotten Gods Pitiless Plunderer High Market Shizo, Death's Storehouse Divine Visitation Intangible Virtue Attrition

A few sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar

And ofc, you have your generic Orzhov stuff like Path to Exile , Anguished Unmaking , Utter End , Wrath of God , Merciless Eviction

What maybe would also work are all the Afterlife dudes like: Ministrant of Obligation , Tithe Taker

Of course all of this above is just a suggestion. I think in this way you can easily you can keep the Legendary theme alive in your deck, but point in a bit more towards the Orzhov Syndicate. (wich in my opinion is an awesome guild!!) I think I kept a bit on a eye on your budget of $9 a card. If I missed a few my apologies.

5c0r910n Ahh ok, I forgot about Serra Disciple . Chromatic Lantern was only in there to reach 5 colors for Chamber Sentry , but now that it's 4 colors I can probably add a Mox Amber or two or three and use the Treasure tokens to get there, considering I have a decent amount of Legendaries. Mox would also be another good 0CMC Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle trigger.

Dive Down would be a good sideboard card, especially with the Mox Amber and Lazav, the Multifarious or Rona, Disciple of Gix out.

Thanks, 5c0r910n!

Yeah I took a break from Standard, and when I started looking at the new cards I realized that Judith would be nuts here haha :D

Is the bird thing Sai, Master Thopterist or Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle ? Judith is supposed to replace Sai, but Teshar is a part of the combo. Although I'm leaning towards making this a Grixis list, splashing white for Teshar and stuff like Revival / Revenge . What do you think?
