Teysa, Orzhov Scion Discussion

All hail the Orzhov Syndicate! Oh boy! If you like Orzhov, and you like spirits, you best get to brewing on Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts : D

if you can cook up a flavour for it, you could have a lot of fun with the old kamigawa spirits and their interaction with spirits/arcanes.

I'd love to help out more, just hit me. And the more spicifuc the questions the better I can do that ;)

Maybe run 1 or 2 Teysa, Orzhov Scion

haze on Catholicism (Teysa, Orzhov Scion combo EDH)

1 week ago

Found your deck while browsing EDHREC for ideas to update my Teysa. I think I will have to consider Phyrexian Tower, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Sadistic Hypnotist, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, and Smokestack. Aside from the land, these cards are all 4-6 mana - a mild concern. I find it hard to justify adding cards to the deck that can't be recurred by Sun Titan or Reveillark. My friends have long advocated for reducing their decks' overall mana curves, too. Have you found the mana cost of those cards to be an issue for you?

Has Smokestack been effective for you? I liked having Braids, Cabal Minion when she was legal so the Stax archetype has some appeal but, unlike Braids, Smokestack is not something my deck can recur if it is destroyed. Further, I'm thinking my deck might not always have expendable creatures to sac for Smokestack, and I'd be a little worried about having an opponent Wrath leaving me to sacrifice Smokestack or lands. So... yeah, how has it been for you?

Your deck description mentions two combos that don't quite work the way you've described:

First, the Darkest Hour + Blood Artist + Any 3 Creatures + Teysa, Orzhov Scion combo; it does not work because Teysa's first ability cannot be activated when Darkest Hour is in play. That ability requires sacrificing white creatures and Darkest Hour overrides all colors, making all creatures mono-black. Rather, you'd need Darkest Hour + Blood Artist + Any Sac Outlet + Any Expendable Creature + Teysa, Orzhov Scion

Secondly, the Darkest Hour + Sadistic Hypnotist + Any 3 Creatures + Teysa, Orzhov Scion combo is only slightly off; you just need one expendable creature, not three, to make all your opponents discard.

I really like the versatility of having the Karmic Guide + Reveillark combo in my deck and have built the deck with almost everything being capable of recursion by Reveillark or Sun Titan. I like your use of Angelic Renewal alongside Sun Titan; it's another one of those ideas that I feel I should test out. A similar option I only happened upon today (thanks to finding Milan's Teysa deck) is Fiend Hunter to combo with Sun Titan and I'm pretty fond of the idea given that Fiend Hunter can play defense in the early game and can be recurred by both Karmic Guide and Reviellark later. Have you considered Fiend Hunter, Karmic Guide and Reviellark for your deck?

Hey dude! To be honest I looked at you deck and some other ones to make this one. I had this idea for sometimes and wanted to make a modern deck with it but as I thought more and more about it it felt more logical to make a Commander/EDH deck with it :'D

Thanks for the suggestion, I like those cards but originaly I aimed at angels/soldiers/spirit tokens. Turns out I have to take what I have atm. :lSeeing how budget those cards are I might try to get them, removing Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Bruna, the Fading Light, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls and Teysa, Orzhov Scion wich are more place olders than anything else even tho I like Avacyn. I also hesitated to take the Ravos/Tana combo as commanders but I really like the idea of Saskia wich I find pretty fun tbh! I think Impact Tremors and Beastmaster Ascension would be a cool addition to the deck too!

Also, my deck is more of a "dump all the stoopid cards I have that are not in other decks", I will only have to buy a few cards, like Saskia.

Aiding on Pain & Life

I would say try to look at a Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck. It is a little more token/combo based instead of lifegain/drain, but they have a good amount of W/B cards that can go into any W/B deck.

One card I can say (depending on preference and what your playgroup allows) is Exquisite Blood . With sanguine bond, you immediately win through a loop. All you need is one life gain or an opponent to lose life.

Also, depending on your win preferences, you can run Serra Ascendant or Chalice of Life  Flip and its flip side Chalice of Death or even Felidar Sovereign .

In general, extort is more of a "bonus" than a reliable win con. Life gain is meant to be annoying, and constant. Imagine dropping a Phyrexian Processor and making 30/30's every turn, giving them lifelink, then repeating. Sound gross?

Hybrow on Shadowborn Apostles and the demons who love them

3 weeks ago

Penthoplayer I have looked at Edgewalker before, as well as Zulaport Cutthroat, they are both very tempting (Blood Artist, I lump in with Cutthroat)..

The problem with Edgewalker that I see from playtests is that I am not really worried about paying for my Shadowborn Apostles. They are pretty cheap, and after the first initial hand, I am not hurting for mana. And with Thrumming Stone, Immortal Servitude, and Rally the Ancestors I tend to not pay too much for them after the first few hands.

Zulaport Cutthroat is super tempting, the more I play this, the more I realize that I don't need 10 demons in the deck. And the direct damage/Lifegain is nice. I would also get it for the Apostles and then again for the spirits that Teysa, Orzhov Scion produces. I think I am going to have to find a spot for him, but I am thinking only 1 spot, so no Blood Artist :)

Now I just have to figure out my most useless Demon, thinking it might be Stronghold Overseer.
