Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts Discussion

DrkNinja, while I do reeaaalllyy agree with your card suggestions, I should have stated first that this is a budget deck. Hahahahaha. Sorry.
I just started magic a few weeks ago, and I have inherited from my brother his Trostani EDH deck, and as long as I keep to myself for the first few turns and stay alive, I automatically win, with huge creatures all over the field hitting 2-3 people in one turn and dealing lethal to them. But I wanna change that for a bit and try to create a deck of my own playstyle.
I agree that most of my cards don't really have much worth come mid or late game, but I find it fun trying to keep others from winning. I also checked your deck and I found really good stuff to consider bringing over here to mine.
Cards I'm considering:
*Cards I have in extra
Though some of your suggestions such as Curse of Opulence and Curse of Bloodletting are really good, I don't think it's legal for me to put it in an esper themed deck. Also, Curse of Shallow Graves doesn't really do much for me, I'd rather put in Curse of Disturbance , as I also get a zombie whenever that player is attacked. I know that it's weird, but I would try to minimize each opponent's gains from my enchantments too much. Incentivizing them to attack another player is good, but them getting 2/2 zombies who can hit me too, would be real bad.
Vedalken Orrery is reaallyyy good for this deck but it's priced up way too high for me. This is the first time I've heard of Forcefield , and no. I wouldn't be able to afford it, and if I could, I definitely wouldn't be downgrading everything else in this deck. Ahahahahahaha
Any suggestions as to which cards I could do without?

So first iteration of my yenett deck was put to the test. 3 games, 3 wins. Worth mentioning i'm playing only in paper and that our LGS is small and deck are rather casual (i believe strongest decks are like 6/10 in term of power). We tend to play long games. My build runs 38 lands (21 basics, 1 fetch), and 10 even cards. Cannot provide decklist yet. My build isn't very focused on single target removal. Thou i need to add some removal for enchantments/artifacts. No Future Sight, Sensei, Soothsaying. Rise of the Dark Realms, Anguished Unmaking i have in other decks.
Even cards are : Strionic Resonator (damn this one is strong), Swiftfoot Boots , some 2cmc mana rocks, Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Smothering Tithe (Can this get ban already?), Overwhelming Denial .
Since this is "casual", only wheel effect im running along this Smothering Tithe is Dark Deal .
Liliana Vess performed really well. I don't have Animatou. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is probably fine addition to the deck. Dream Cache is probably better than Frantic Search? Living Death is too risky in my opinion.
Ethersworn Adjudicator was really good in my games.
Examples of odd cards im running: Herald of Leshrac , Artisan of Kozilek , Brilliant Ultimatum , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Blatant Thievery , Void Winnower , Inkwell Leviathan , Mind's Dilation , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Platinum Angel , Angelic Arbiter
If You want to improve Yenett and make deck real nasty , extra turn spells are probably way to go (Nexus of Fate might be really strong). Old Ulamog and New Emrakul are also Odd cards. Magister Sphinx , Enigma Sphinx , Mother of Runes , Iona, Approach of the Second Sun can also be very good.
Hope this helps a little and i'll see another Yenett video on the channel :D

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
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.

Lol. I know I said I was looking for more suggestions, and No Mercy is awesome!!! I didn't know that card existed and that's really cool. It's gonna be a headache to decide what to take out, but I like the idea of having stuff attack me then die, because it did. I already have Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts but this is a fine new addition to the deck, thanks and have a good one :D

I like this list. A lot. Going to build my own this weekend.
Entrapment Maneuver seems really good in this strategy.
Hour of Reckoning better than day of judgment.

I value low curves for a personal deck building as I come from a more competitive meta, so cards I find inefficient are cards like:
- Ethereal Absolution
- Debtors' Knell
- Obzedat's Aid
- Entreat the Dead
- Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
- Pontiff of Blight
- Maw of the Obzedat
- Butcher of Malakir
- Angel of Despair
All these cards are a bit too clunky and don't provide much additional benefit with running in strategy with Teysa Karlov. More die trigger effects or spirit production are great, so I would recommend more cards like Archon of Justice or sac outlets and die triggers that provide card advantage like Grim Haruspex . Just my perspective imo, it is your deck :P
Hope that helps! ^^

Personally I was going to go Esper to have access to cards like Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts and GAAIV. However, sultai does seem EXTREMELY strong for pertitioners.
Not sure how anyone feels about this, but what about 4 color? We could run Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as commander. Although, it would probably be wiser to run a partner pair. I agree with everyone else here on the cards. Bloodbond March , Thrumming Stone , and Secret Salvage would all be very strong. Since this most likely will be tribal we have access to things like Harsh Mercy , Kindred Dominance , Patriarch's Bidding , etc.
I also second the idea of that EDH group.
Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts occurrence in decks from the last year
Commander / EDH:
All decks: 0.02%
W/B (Orzhov): 0.5%
