Teysa, Orzhov Scion Discussion

You should choose between Orzhov Aristocrats or Soul Sisters. It's holding you back from exploiting Blood Artist, Athreos, God of Passage, and Teysa, Orzhov Scion. I believe it would be best to ditch the lifegain theme, focus on creatures that you benefit from sacrficing such as Doomed Traveler and Doomed Dissenter

Your creatures dying punishing your opponents is good but I feel you lack fuel for the stacks approach and your commander in general. With that in mind I have some token generators that might help with that: Abhorrent Overlord, Evangel of Heliod, Captain of the Watch, Cloudgoat Ranger, Geist-Honored Monk, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Infernal Genesis, Leonin Warleader, Ophiomancer, Pawn of Ulamog, Secure the Wastes, Sengir Autocrat, Skirsdag High Priest. I have tried to choose creatures that were efficient in general and gain value with reanimation.

A couple of useful creatures to consider as well: Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Teysa, Orzhov Scion.

Neat ideal with the two faced deck.

The truth of the matter is, I'm not sure what color(s) I am. However, if I got to choose, I would want to be .

Characters who I tend to find most interesting could easily be placed into these colors:

These are characters who are ambitious, cunning and ruthless in their pursuits of power and influence. However, they're also characters who have their own code of ethics and concern for an inner circle that they're willing to do whatever it takes to protect. These are qualities that I respect, these are qualities that I wish to emulate into my own life. This is the reason I think I'm .

Fallerup on JLK's Shadowborn Apostle l Game Knights #18

On the show where they did the deck tech for this, they talked about adding more Shadowborn Apostles. like 30 or 32, but what do you take out? say you want 30, then you take out Bontu's Monument and what Zulaport Cutthroat? I would take those out, but also take 2 more out and add Falkenrath Noble & Westvale Abbey  Flip (Ormendahl, Profane Prince), but which 2, that is the question. also, Archfiend of Dispair is a great addition, I agree, but only vs lifegain decks, otherwise it doesn't really matter. Teysa, Orzhov Scion like before mentioned in comments here is fantastic.

No I don't play Tiny Leaders, well, I tried it, but took the deck apart because apparently using all of black and whites tutors to find Darkest Hour and Blasting Station in my Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck was okay, but when I found out how to build a tiny leaders varient of Hermit Druid, no one wanted to play against me.

Here is how it works, Hermit Druid your deck into your yard, and flashback Memory's Journey, hitting Yawgmoth's Will. I usually also hit Gitaxian Probe too. If you have a lot of mana, you can even flashback Think Twice to draw a card, however I normally mill myself out and flashback Journey on upkeep so I don't care.

Cast Yawgmoth's Will, and start storming off from the yard, with Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, and all of the efficient mana rocks that net mana. Then cast any number of combos. I usually go for Regrowthing back a Dramatic Reversal, casting Isochron Scepter from the yard, imprinting it, making infinite mana, casting Laboratory Maniac from the yard, casting my commander (Thrasios, Triton Hero, with Tymna the Weaver as the partner), and drawing to win.

The deck obviously could win with just IsoRev combo, with the commander, and won averagely turn 3. With all of the tutors and ramp legal, without Force of Will for my opponents to respond as easily (with Swan Song, Flusterstorm, Spell Pierce, Counterspell, Pact of Negation they can, but not as easily), the format dulled to a cEDH format with less interaction. Really sucked too, because it had so much promise.

That was back when I played around 4 years ago. I started ~5 years ago, but stopped 3 years ago. Started back up in late Amonkhet where I saw a booster box (or bundle?) in a store and remembered it. Got back in and though I sold my standard playabled, ended up that a lot of my other cards were great in commander, like Serra's Sanctum and Earthcraft, which I thought were only cool little tid-bits of MTG history at the time.

BS-T on Looking for a token commander

I like the Teysa, Orzhov Scion idea, if only because someone at my prerelease mentioned combining Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Divine Visitation for maximum hilarity.

If you want aristocrats though you should do at least BG. Mazirek, Slimefoot, Proshh, Ghave would all be great.

This should help give you some ideas.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion is a good one in black as is Ghave, Guru of Spores and Slimefoot, the Stowaway

Hey, I use quite a few of these cards in my Black/White Exile deck, in fact up until recently it was similarly almost a legend build. Few suggestions that I considered before going another direction.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim : A great low-mana legend with Deathtouch for dissuading attacks as well as a complement of other abilities, this was on of the last ones to be replaced in my Exile deck.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion : This one pairs extremely well with the ability granted from Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts "big Teysa" (as I call her). I still run both Teysa versions in my exile deck due to how well they play off one another. The tokens granted by "big Teysa" can be sacrificed mana-free with "little Teysa"'s ability, and get replaced with mono-white tokens that can (if needed) be re-sacrificed against another target.

Dark Ritual and/or Culling the Weak : You have a few tagline keywords marked for this deck, but as it stands it is not Modern Legal anyway. Both Dark Ritual and Culling the Weak are Legacy Legal though (what I typically play), and being unsure what format you're striving for, they may or may not be a good fit to help you crank out "big Teysa" a bit sooner. Being as your deck is flagged for Modern, however, the site will not allow me to issue a recommendation for either one beyond a mention here.

Beyond that, you've got some solid cards in here, I'd recommend just playing with the deck as many times as you can to see which win conditions seem most prevalent and then re-vamping to focus on those.

Also, running just 1x copy of a card in a deck is generally a poor idea without some kind of search-card to find what you need or a good draw capacity to cycle through the library (except, of course, for EDH 'Commander' format, where 1 copy is the limit). You already have a few multiples on the list here, as well as a 61-card build, so I'm assuming this is not meant for EDH 'Commander'. Select your more reliable and powerful cards and add more copies so that you can more consistently pull off what you need for win conditions.

You can check out my deck titled "Exile Everything!" if you want a few more suggestions to work with the two versions of Teysa. Kudos on using her, by the way, she's one of my favorites and also is not a very common power card to run across in decks. I very much appreciate seeing another build utilizing her.
