Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts Discussion

bomley20 on MarChairSa (chair tribal)

1 week ago

You can add Demonic Tutor if you want a tutor. They have a promo with a guy sitting on a throne in the background. You can also try Throne of the God-Pharaoh if you have a lot of tapped creatures each turn. You could also have Sorceress Queen to make it easier to kill things in combat or with burns. Vengeful Pharaoh and Marchesa's Decree can help deter attackers if you don't have Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts. Feel free to look through my chair deck for anything else that may help you build your own chair deck: Please have a seat. There aren't too many of us that want to build something like this.

Vossul on Oloro's dissociative identity disorder

1 week ago

Fun looking deck. Ive had an evolving Oloro deck over the past year with a lot of thievery and deterrents to attacking me, in hopes to be the last man standing in multi-player games. On the deterrent side I found Dread, Teysa, Envoy of Ghostsand No Mercy are very effective at scaring people away. As your life total grows, it seems to increase their feeling of futility. BTW great deck name! I coincidentally went with Oloro: The Passive Aggressive for mine. Fitting since Oloro is certainly a little bit nuts. Good luck and happy playing!

Falkrun on Orzhov Sangromancy

2 weeks ago

I've actually been toying with the idea of cutting all my enchants down to one each, save Phyrexian Arena, which I'd keep at three...then dropping four Diabolic Tutor and two Diabolic Revelation in. Then I could tutor for the revelation and use it to pull whole combos into my hand. Perhaps I could cut the keyrunes in favor of two Souls of the Faultless? Also, I'm thinking of swapping Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, and dropping two of the Vizkopa Guildmage (since I only need one to combo, and I could tutor for it) in favor of two Phyrexian Obliterator. What do you think?

And thanks for the help, by the way. :)

precociousapprentice on Marchesa, Political Queen of Pillows

That sounds very positive MegaMatt13. I was anticipating Mathas, Fiend Seeker not doing what people were saying he would do. I feel like he could be exploited as a commander, but likely he will not fit in a lot of 99s.

I can't wait to see Disrupt Decorum in action. I have high hopes. It is not quite Insurrection, but it is close, and actually has a slightly different effect in that the attacks come on other people's turns, sequentially exposing them to counter attacks. It will be a player in both our decks.

I have looked at Underworld Connections several times. It is obviously very close to Phyrexian Arena, but you have to activate it, alleviating the danger of accidentally killing yourself while imposing a small price to use. I still think that it doesn't have the raw power of Necropotence, but it is probably a great incremental card draw, and may be better than most other options.

I should probably add a section into my deck description detailing cards like Erebos, God of the Dead, Dread, Rune-Scarred Demon, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, or other big bomb wincons with added value that can be subbed in depending on meta. Erebos, God of the Dead is probably a total beast against lifegain decks, and adding it simply as a bomb with added card draw is reasonable enough. I traded for one at one time specifically for adding into Queen Marchesa's army, but I never played it.

I love that the core of our decks are super similar, but the trim around the edges is quite different. I am going to put your deck into my inspirations section. Anyone looking to make a Queen Marchesa political control deck should probably look at both decks for a more complete understanding of the archetype.

Spirit_Logan on Mathas, Fiend Seeker Deck

2 weeks ago

I'm working on a new Mathas, Fiend Seeker Deck where everyone attacks each other. The ideas I had so far were: putting C17 curses on people, attacking tax (Ghostly Prison, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs), things like Disrupt Decorum, or if things get bad, Goblin Spymaster+ Blazing Archon . If you have any ideas, please comment. There is a Curses/Enchantments subtheme.

BS-T on Game of Thrones (Marchesa Primer)

3 weeks ago

Really enjoyed reading the Decklist, Primer and Comments. I've been looking for a deck to use Avatar of Slaughter because it just seems so ... brutal. I love it.

I'd be interested to know if you've considered any of these cards and why or why you wouldn't use them; Master Warcraft/Melee (too much of a one off?), Brutal Hordechief (too much mana?), Invasion Plans (TOO much of a sh*t storm and potentially unfavorable?), Odric, Master Tactician (not enough creatures of your own?).

Do you find that your opponents mostly end up tapped out and defenceless so Odric and the Hordechief aren't so much help?

Similarly to Odric, how has Skirsdag High Priest suited you - with only 22 creatures (obviously aside from Assemble the Legion and occasional Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts/Queen Marchesa)?

Morbid_Empress on i need help picking my ...

1 month ago

Now that the new vampire commanders have come out and i know what they are im trying to decide on a commander.

Im trying to make a deck thats budget and casual at least to start with id probly want to upgrade it later as i play with it more and see how it plays.

Anyways these r the commanders i like at the moment and im not sure how to narrow this list down.

I cant decide on playing a deck with Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Teysa, Orzhov Scion,Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge,Kaalia of the Vast, or edward markov.

the teysas have some of my favorite art in magic the gathering and let me play orzhov my favorite color combo. Id probly play teysa scion as a token deck with sacrifice themes. which was a similar to one of my first ever mtg decks i built so nostalgia.

id run teysa envoy as some sort of orzhov control deck that wuld let me stall until i could play big orzhov bomb cards that have really cool art imo.

alesha id play similar to little teysa but with less of a token focus and more sac and recur. i dont like her card as much but i still like it and i like the access to red.

kaalia would be cool cause i could play big demons and angles but i probably wont run her unless i manage either sell some cards or trade for her. and i heard she can be unfun for casual. Though its not like i want to run her to be op i just like angel and demon cards a lot.

jeleva i like for a similar thing but for giant instant and sorcerys, and spell combos.

edward markov was actually a bit disappointment. But vampires are my favorite tribe. and i already have some tribal support. so i might just do that if the rest of the precon is good.

so like how do you narrow down what commander to choose and are any of these like unfun for causal or really hard to build on a budget cause that would help me narrow it down.
