Teysa, Orzhov Scion Discussion
1 week ago
It's a fun idea to play with, but wishes should generally be played only to enhance a preexisting deck. For example, Project X decks (decks built around the Crypt Champion + Saffi Eriksdotter combo) use them as an extra Saffi Eriksdotter or Teysa, Orzhov Scion, along with other helpful cards like Castigate, Dryad Militant and Abrupt Decay. I don't mean to discourage any spark of creativity in the Magic community, but just know that most people don't build decks around Glittering Wish for a reason.
That said, one idea you could incorporate is a hatebear subtheme combined with Eldrich Evolution, allowing you to pull out the perfect bear for the job. They wouldn't take up much space, since you'd only need 1 or 2 of each bear.
I'm interested in how this deck turns out! It's a really fun idea to play with.

SpecialPerson How so? All affected creatures lose all other colors and are mono-black. Teysa, Orzhov Scion requires you to "Sacrifice three white creatures", but there are no white creatures anymore. Now, if you add a sac outlet, say Viscera Seer or Ashnod's Altar, then it would allow you to activate these abilities infinitely.

Alright! Updated again!
I like the Teysa, Orzhov Scion suggestion. I think it meshes in a lot of ways. I added in Skirsdag High Priest to leverage the sacrifice mechanic a bit more as well as the one from Altar's Reap. It should give me some larger tokens too, which is nice. It also gives me more Black creatures I can use with Teysa's second ability, giving even more tokens.
I decided to try taking Gather the Townsfolk out completely so that I could go full Raise the Alarm. Do you think this is a good idea? I can't see the Fateful Hour effect from Gather being one that's as useful to me as simply being able to spawn soldier tokens whenever I need them.
I also took out Anointed Procession. I like the effect, but I only had one in and I felt other cards would be better able to more consistently contribute in that 1 slot. Is this a good choice?
For Brimaz, King of Oreskos, I just don't like that he's a kitty cat, lol. I did feel my deck could use some more "religiousy" themes though, so I put in Mikaeus, the Lunarch, who I think should be able to benefit from all the mana the Crypt Ghasts should be creating. With all my tokens, he should be able to provide some nice buffs. Or, if I just need a big body, he can do that too.
I took Doomed Traveler and Spectral Procession down by 1 as well to fit in some of the above cards. Westvale Abbey Flip went down by 1 as well, mostly because I think my tokens are overall becoming more of a threat even without the flip. I still like it as a possible route to go though.
I think that's about it as far as what changed. Let me know what you think!

As you have chosen a female high priest character replacing Sangromancer is a great idea, but I'd prefer Teysa, Orzhov Scion to Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts due to less mana cost and a more helpful ability (You won't have probelms having tokens, especially now that you have considered Secure the Wastes).
I'd reduce Gather the Townsfolk and Spectral Procession up to 2x each and add 2x Raise the Alarm. It's a good card, that puts two token, as Gather the Townsfolk, but at instant speed, so whenever you want. You can even cut 2x Doomed Traveler if you really want the other two sorceries
What about Brimaz, King of Oreskos? He fits very good in the deck and in the flavor, as he puts token when attacking or defending and he represents the sovereign of the city where this dark story happens and ignores Teysa, Orzhov Scion's plan to unbound Ormendahl, Profane Prince Flip and turn the bright city into the reign of darkness.

Consider the Following: I could just ping nine and leave you with 3 shadowborn apostles, not much use.
Possibly use Teysa, Orzhov Scion as your commander for extra removal when you kill shadowborns

I'm seeing a few challenges for this deck.
- Your ramp is having a good foundation, but you don't have a very large chance of landing a ramp spell on turn 2, if I were you I would exchange the Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot for an Orzhov Signet and a Gruul Signet, while on the topic of mana, you are playing Hour of Promise that synergizes well with Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, putting both in play at the same time.
- Your victory conditions seems to be scattered all around, you have a subtheme with planeswalkers and Parallel Lives, you have a token strategy with anthems to boost them, you have Purphoros, God of the Forge to kill people with tokens coming into play, then you have a couple of creatures which don't seem to support either of those strategies, you appear to be wanting to do too many different things.
I would consider replacing Saskia the Unyielding, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Iroas, God of Victory, Faith's Reward, Erebos, God of the Dead Beacon of Unrest, Xenagos, God of Revels, Ever After, Lurking Predators, Grave Titan.
A few suggestions on what to add instead could be something like Martyr's Cause, Retribution of the Meek, Fight to the Death, Obzedat's Aid (it can return planeswalkers), Blood Artist, Aura Shards Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Requiem Angel
In my experience, focusing on one main strategy and maaaybe one secondary strategy, is the way to get consistent performance with a deck.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion (though she does require some commitment to a wider/token strategy) seems like a profitable edition for synergies with Dictate of Erebos plus she is the best at keeping scary stuff off the board, or even threatening to. Rite of the Raging Storm could be fun for politics and fort of a more persuasive nature.
I also can't stress the need for dual lands enough in a three color deck. They can be pricey (Especially the actual dual lands and so forth) but some of them have seen quite a few reprints and can be picked up for between 2-6 dollars. These colors are also on the cheaper sideShambling Vent at 2.50Temple of Triumph at 1.00Dragonskull Summit at 3.00All the Best!
