Teysa, Orzhov Scion Discussion

AwesomeJMS5 on Don't Teysa Me Bro

Hey, I've got my own Teysa Deck that I love to play with, which is focused heavily on combos and comboing. If you wanted a good tutor to help get your combo pieces, I'd recommend Diabolic Revelation since it can tutor many things at once. Also, seeing as you have both Karmic Guide and Reveillark, you should know that as long as you can sacrifice them, they go infinite with each other.

Seeing as you have a few cards that are already close to comboing together, I thought I'd also recommend a few cards that can help you go infinite, if that's what you want to do. Your Requiem Angel, when paired with Divine Visitation cycles infinite tokens for infinite death when you sacrifice creatures. You also have the older Teysa, Orzhov Scion which, when paired with Darkest Hour does the same thing and cycles infinite tokens.

Those are my main suggestions if you want to complete combos. Divine Visitation and Darkest Hour. As for a good tutor, Diabolic Revelation is pretty good. Finally, Blasting Station and Altar of Dementia are both good sacrifice artifacts that will allow you to do a ton of damage to your opponents or mill them out.

I hope these suggestions are useful, and good luck with your Teysa deck in the apocalypse!

There's definitely better commanders you can play without breaking the bank if you want to break your uncommon rule:

TK_Tyrant thanks so much for the comment and question. Very glad someone is able to enjoy the deck like myself. I'm still learning whats working and I would say the deck really wins of it's synergy so it kind of hard to pick but I have some favourites! First should mention with Athreos its very easy and possible that the super good combo cards and threats will be owned by your opponents so just slap a coin counter on whatever looks good. I think the main win conditions are from cards like Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Cruel Celebrant, and Corpse Knight. These cards are nice with the sacrifice synergy and spirit tokens. I always try to throw coin counters on these type of cards so they stick around. Some more single stand outs are Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Teysa, Orzhov Scion. Yawgmoth is a sac outlet letting you draw to find more synergy. He also is great for killing things. Teysa has been doing work everytime she's hit the board. She's great removal on a stick, lets me sac things for zulaport triggers and makes more tokens at the same time. Lastly one of my recent additions and favourites has to be Mirror Entity. Makes all the little tokens into big threats. Also makes them all spirits or humans if the need arises. This with Piper of the Swarm is amazing and hilarious and is portably my favourite combo so far. Thanks again for the comment and hope the deck keeps working out for you!!

Teysa, Orzhov Scion could be a nice fit in here with all the afterlife you have, and then with all your tokens, Ethereal Absolution has some potential. And then Elenda, the Dusk Rose is just made for this deck.

Abyssal Gatekeeper is the equivalent of a Merciless Executioner but for death triggers. Ancient Stone Idol makes two beefy tokens on death. Cavalier of Night is nice removal and double revival on its own death.

I feel like the moxes don’t really fit here too well. You need to have Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as must-run token planeswalkers. I would also seriously look into Vindictive Vampire, Woe Strider, and both of the Athreos gods.

Also, Giver of Runes seems out of place here. Is there really a point? Weathered Wayfarer is also a somewhat odd choice. You’re at 36 lands and are only in two colors - one being black. I don’t think you need this kind of land tutor (but that’s just me).

There are some other things I’d change (I used to run Teysa, Orzhov Scion for a very long time and enjoyed her before I switched to Teysa Karlov), but I don’t want to sound mean or anything like that. It’s a nice deck, but some of the choices give me the try-hards (like the moxes for example). But hey dude, if you dig it and it brings you joy, keep doing what you’re doing!

Hey, you're welcome.

In my opinion the reason to add Guide is give you a combo win with aristocrats. You're right, Guide doesn't trigger Teysa, but the interaction of Guide + Lark creating a dying loop is one of the best interactions with aristocrats. I agree with you, tokens and dying effect strategies are good with Teysa Karlov as Commander. These strategies are much better with her as Commander than aristocrats strategies because Teysa herself is not a combo piece for aristocrats.

My advice is expand on the token theme and dying effects that interact with tokens and reduce the aristocrat strategies. Mirror Entity is a card to consider adding since it can pump tokens and Teysa to huge amounts or be a sac outlet to trigger a lot of dying effects.

I played Teysa Karlov aristocrats for a while, but switched to Teysa, Orzhov Scion as the Commander because Scion is an actual combo piece with aristocrats.

Cards to consider cutting:

Significant changes made.

Moved the deck even further away from token generators and more towards self recuring non-token creatures. Also reduced the average CMC to 3.10.

KibaAlpha, I would love to get your feedback on my latest edits if you can spare some time.
