Teysa, Orzhov Scion Discussion

I agree Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor. The Orzhov one has me super excited. Out of the new art Isperia, Supreme Judge and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed have my favorite art. While Teysa, Orzhov Scion isn't the best art I've ever seen, it is kinda cool (plus the flavor text is great "Spend your life betraying me if you wish. I'll simply take it up with your ghost."

I would say Orzhov ZendikariWol, but I'm biased since Orzhov is my favorite guild . . .

Outside of Azorious these guild kits look great!

Each guild besides Azorious got at least one $$ card. The Debtors' Knell and Voidslime reprints are much appreciated, but there are some other great choices here too. I do like their choices on which new cards they included as well.

My only complaint is that some of the new artwork for the legends is pretty bad (looking at you Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Zegana, Utopian Speaker ).

Masterful on Necronomicon | Teysa Karlov | Speculation Primer

2 days ago

FutureWitness I have seen many people saying she belongs in the 99 as well. The main point in favor of this is that Teysa Karlov doesn't provide any of the pieces to an aristocrats deck herself. In comparison, other commanders like Teysa, Orzhov Scion or Krav, the Unredeemed and Regna, the Redeemer provide tokens and sac outlets by themselves. This means Teysa Karlov has overall less consistency; however, she provides other valuable aspects to the strategy.

You mentioned her necronomicon effect which allows for incredible value. With the other commanders, it will be easier to get an engine going since they provide some parts, but with TK, the engine will be much more powerful. Ultimately it comes down to preference. What you've been seeing are the people that prefer consistency over power, and there is validity to that. I would say competitively, the consistency wins out. Though, in my opinion, new Teysa's ability to copy death triggers is something I definitely want in my command zone.

In the testing I've done so far, the deck has been far from under-powered, but that depends on many factors such as meta and power level. My meta is 75%, but if yours is 90%, this deck would definitely be lacking. Inversely, in a heavily casual 30-40% meta, this deck would stomp.

As for whether or not she should be your commander, its up to you. Her effectiveness as a commander is apparent, and unless you're playing in a super competitive meta, she'll do great.

willis1234 Coils is cool. It makes the death engine run a lot faster and provides a lot of tokens with Requiem Angel . However, it's very slow to get running and does nothing until the engine is online. I'll add it to the maybeboard.

I think it'll make you very happy that Elspeth, Sun's Champion is the MVP of my new Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck. She's almost always my first tutor.

First of all, thanks for the advices you gave

Then, Apollo_Paladin, Phantom General doesn't convince me much: it is, as you said, heavy on mana cost and it does basically the same of Intangible Virtue and Honor of the Pure. Plus, another downside is that it is a creature, so it's also easily destroyable in comparison to the other 2 enchantments

Not pretty sure about Teysa, Orzhov Scion, I'll playtest it and see if it fits in the deck

dragonforce60, thanks for sharing the article and for calculation that my deck is a 22-21 lander, I'll make those changes

Thought about it after commenting, but Teysa, Orzhov Scion isn't a bad drop to help your tokens cycle.

Haha definitely, I'm in love with my friend's Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck. So this new Teysa is super cool, unfortunately I don't think it makes the cut for his deck as her ability is a tad more on the win more side.

Luckily it's going to be completely spoiled in the next two weeks, so super excited to see what brews that can be formulated. Cuts can be hard but in my perspective there is an order on how I deck build. Like thinking if its going to be a casual deck, optimized tuned deck, or a competitive deck. ^^

I'm so excitedddddddd. Probably not building her (Aristocrats doesn't overly excite me), but she's getting a slot in my current Teysa, Orzhov Scion Superfriends list 99! Also getting a slot if I put Elenda, the Dusk Rose back together.
