Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts Discussion

Anfalas on EDH Kambal Extortion

The sideboard at this point is kind of a null-factor - mostly for cards that I can't decide on. The exceptions are; Bloodbond Vampire for the large-creature trope; Festering March for creature control (the self-recurring -1/-1 to opposing creatures is golden); Gift of Estates for land gain if I find that things aren't running quite well enough; Vampire Hexmage for Planeswalker or +1/+1 counter control; and finally, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts is strong deterrent from attacks. The others are nice, but I'm really not sure if they're what I need.
As for how I'd switch them in, I'm not entirely sure - it'd be a case by case basis, depending on what the situation calls for (and how lazy I am at the time). I'm still trying to figure out how to fit the other cards I'm searching for first, haha.

I think Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts would also fit in this deck. She keeps opponents from attacking you and she can attack them without big risk.

And great Deck!

Interesting build, Vintague. I've always had an affinity for Tribal decks.

This is just my humble opinion, but your deck seems a tad crowded in the 3 CMC slot. I'd look for some 1 drops to help smooth out your curve and get you the board earlier. I highly suggest Kami of False Hope. Gives you some protection from combat damage coming in too fast while you build. Topplegeist is a decent early or late since it get's a body on the field early, and can tap down something late game if you need to come through for damage.

It seems like this deck would function without Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts. She doesn't close out the game, and it seems your spirits do just fine without her. Something like Devouring Greed seems like you could sac your line and seal the deal, or if you wanted to remove black (making your mana more consistent), you could add Phantom General giving you something for the 4CMC slot, and giving all those spirit tokens a nice buff.

ok so some super cheap sugestions for you are Angel of Deliverance Ankle Shanker Banefire Marchesa's Decree Merciless Eviction Skyline Despot and my favorite Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts teysa in particular is cool because shes unblockable vigilance that if a creature takes the monarchy it gets destroyed, and you can always get it back

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts Strong protection, destroys creatures that deal damage to you, can't be blocked and produces 1/1 spirit flyer tokens. Just a thought, and it fits your theme!

I think the enchantment idea is fun but I don't get all of the 1 ofs. It seems that with so much variety and only 1 tutor you'll never be drawing into what you need when you need it. I think the deck needs Idyllic Tutor or just shave off a lot of the very conditional cards in place of 4 ofs of the better ones. For example Things like Burnished Hart and Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts seem like weak links, but things like Mesa Enchantress and Eidolon of Blossoms provide great value.

Uril, the Miststalker Can be strong, fun and easy on the wallet.

Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief Is a super neat general with removal, plus pump. Mana intensive though.

Kemba, Kha Regent Now kemba can do lots of really funny stuff. Lifegain/Token Army and one of the more powerful artifact/enchantment colors.

Omnath, Locus of Mana A strange kind of voltron, but you wanted fun. He can do voltron in a less traditional way, but he can do it.

Geist of Saint Traft Voltron that makes angels everywhere.

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind OOOooh boy lazav, not your usual guy. But turning him in to "Lazav, the Ceaseless Hunger" or "Lazav, the stormtide leviathan" it really just depends of your opponents, sky's the limit.

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts I mean things can't block her, and your opponents will second guess attacking you. It can be fun and strong.

Sisters of Stone Death The usual thing people do with her, is gorgon tribal... Why do that when you can swing, steal stuff, and abuse your giant creature? This one is pretty mana intensive, good thing she's got green.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped He takes a little bit of fandiddling with your graveyard and deck, but I've been told he can be fun and rewarding.

Tajic, Blade of the Legion If you like pissing your opponents off by constantly using board wipes this is the man to play, or Zurgo Helmsmasher maybe even Sapling of Colfenor just make sure to use Worldslayer in any of the 3
