Teysa, Orzhov Scion Discussion

enpc on Finding Graveyard Theme Commanders.

As mentioned by zelian12, to get maximum bang for buck with this card you're probably going to want give yourself access to white (though I don't think that it does work with Fiend Hunter ) as there are a lot of good reanimation targets in white.

Ghave, Guru of Spores is not bad as he provides a sac outlet on the commander. Karador, Ghost Chieftain is one of the go-to reanimator decks. You could also look into Teysa, Orzhov Scion if you didn't want green (but who doesn't want to run Saffi Eriksdotter ?).

I strongly suggest the OG Ravnica legends, most of which are powerful but overshadowed by later printings within their guilds. Sure, two of them ( Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and Teysa, Orzhov Scion ) are among the more highly played commanders, but I was thinking more like Lyzolda, the Blood Witch , or Ulasht, the Hate Seed , or Savra, Queen of the Golgari , or Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran . There's a lot of originality to be had in those decks, and a ton of customization and deckbuilding, plus you get the bonus of someone going "Woah, I've never seen a _ deck before!" basically every time you sit down to play.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth , Karador, Ghost Chieftain , and Teysa, Orzhov Scion are all proven quite capable of being built to any power level.

The recent unban of Painter's Servant has me eyeballing Teysa, Orzhov Scion more and more. She makes a strong commander without combo and ridiculous with it. Plus the pay off on her is exiling opponent's creatures. Anytime anything slightly scary looks at you just snap your fingers and it is gone.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion is good. And you can include Teysa Karlov in the list.

sonnet666 on engine out, painters servant in

1 week ago

Making all cards one color has a variety of niche combos that do busted things:

  1. Painter's Servant + Iona, Shield of Emeria was a spell lock. One of the reasons it was banned in the first place.
  2. Painter's Servant + Grindstone is effectively, ": Target player loses the game," and can go in any deck.
  3. Painter's Servant + Hibernation is basically Upheaval , another card banned in EDH. Since this version is so cheap and an instant you can cast Hibernation in response to your own spell, and then win the game with whatever problem creature you have on an empty field. It's also as easy to tutor as Dramatic Scepter.
  4. Painter's Servant + Deathgrip = Off color repeatable counterspells (there's a green version of this enchantment I can't remember).
  5. Painter's Servant + Compost = Makes you draw anytime any card touches your opponent's yard.
  6. Painter's Servant + Animar = Protection from everything.
  7. Painter's Servant + Teysa, Orzhov Scion = Extra Darkest Hour for sac loops.

Anyway, none of those were the reason Flash Hulk has become more powerful. It's just that Paradox Engine decks were one of the few things in the cEDH meta that could compete with Flash Hulk, so now that it's banned Flash Hulk decks are basically uncontested.

DemonDragonJ on Why is Teysa, Envoy of ...

2 weeks ago

Teysa Karlov has quickly become one of the most popular black/white generals for EDH in this game, and the first incarnation of the character, Teysa, Orzhov Scion has remained popular, as well, but her second incarnation, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , is considerably less popular, which I find to be unfortunate, since that version is my favorite of the three.

Why is that? Is it because her mana cost is very high? What does everyone else say about that?

Raging_Squiggle on Teysa triggers interactions with athreos

4 weeks ago

Any creature entering the graveyard from the battlefield will trigger any death triggers. Thanks to Teysa Karlov , those death triggers will trigger twice.

For Athreos, if another creature you own dies, he will trigger (twice if Teysa Karlov is in play). Each trigger will resolve one at a time, so for the first one, your opponent may choose to pay 3 life or let the creature go back to your hand. If they choose to pay 3 life, they (or another opponent) must then choose to pay 3 life again or let it go back to your hand. If they choose to not pay the life for the first trigger, the second will become redundant, as the creature will have been returned to your hand already. (Though an opponent may still choose to pay the 3 life just because).

And secondly, yes, even though the creature returns to your hand, it still died trigger Teysa, Orzhov Scion 's ability.
