Teysa, Orzhov Scion Discussion

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.

Hi, thank you for your advices, they're precisely what i needed! First of all i know that the description is rough and approximate, when i'll arrive to 100 cards beeing sure i'll fix it once for all.
Fetid Heath , Phyrexian Tower and Diabolic Intent are surely better, and are in my wishlist for now, but i'm already investing in my Kaalia deck and except for some budget utilities (like Wake the Dead ) i prefer to wait.
Talking about the cutting (that was my biggest problem):
Cathodion is effectively the first card to remove
Pitiless Plunderer and Geist-Honored Monk have both better alternatives ( Pawn of Ulamog and Sengir Autocrat ). The second was in for giving more possibilities to get a Nim's piece of Combo and a Xathrid Necromancer target. But i think you're right and i'll cut both of them.
I think that Felidar-Restoration + Corpse Knight could be a solution if i can't pass from graveyard ( Rest in Peace & co.), but effectively it's less synergical with Teysa and all the deck. So I'll cut them.
Cutting all this i go to 100 with Teysa Karlov and Elenda, the Dusk Rose still inside: the second is not a good token generator neither is useful with his lifelink, maybe adding a Doom Whisperer to going through the deck looking for missing card? The second is a redundant, if i go infinite i don't need it, but don't you think that in a bad moment of the game a double Teysa, Orzhov Scion or Skullclamp or giving lifelink and vigilance to all the generated tokens could be a good topdeck?

Hey, most of my suggestions were for multiplayer Commander where opponent disruption is very powerful since you have minimum three opponents. In 1v1 Commander especially if you're mostly just against your wife then I don't think more disruption is the direction to go. Making it so your wife can't play cards, use her cards or interact with you will not be fun for her.
I think aristocrats and life drain are the best causal directions to go with Orzhov because Orzhov colors have the most cards that have synergy with these themes. I however don't think Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts is a good General for aristocrats. Not when there's better Orzhov options such as Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim . Both creatures who are sac outlets and in the maybeboard. Aristocrats need two main things a sac outlet and reanimated/recurable creatures. You want your General to be able to do one of these two things which Teysa can't do. Other than Blood Artist the aristocrat theme is more your creatures dying not your opponents. Teysa's ability and the main theme of your deck is to kill your opponents creatures not your own.
As a General for a Voltron theme Teysa is unrealistic as the primary creature to equip to. Which in my opinion means that Voltron is not a good strategy with Teysa since you want to be equipping your General to do Commander damage. If you're just using Teysa as a win condition and equipping her with a single equipment then that's fine, but that's not Voltron.
In my comment I said other than Lashwrithe . Lashwrithe can be a win condition when equipped to Teysa which can equip for free (4 life). It's an equipment that doesn't require a creature to be good because it creates a creature when it ETB. In Commander, decks spots are few, taking up spots with equipment when you're only wanting to equip to a seven mana creature is not helping your deck. Instead use the spots with cards that work better with your overall deck's strategy.
If you play an aristocrat theme then Teysa shouldn't be the win condition of your deck instead it should be a combo with an aristocrat to drain your opponents. For this reason Teysa is not needed as a General because she's not going to be part of any aristocrat combo you use. When playing combos you want to use your General as part of a combo which helps with consistency of being able to assemble the combo (one less card you have to find).
If you're playing 1v1 Commander not multiplayer Commander then single discard that only affects one opponent are good. Hymn to Tourach can be powerful in 1v1. If you're choosing to change your deck into aristocrats then don't play Hushbringer :) It's hate against aristocrat strategies since it shuts down dies effects and ETB effects. Not to give her any ideas ;), but Hushbringer is a card your wife should play against you since it will demand an answer from you.

Nim Deathmantle also combos real nice with Ashnod's Altar. Karmic Guide plus Reveillark also make for a fantastic Infinite loop for you Blood Artist effects plus the ability for standalone utility as recursion pieces.
Altar of the Brood makes for a low cmc finisher for infinite loops as well.
In general I strongly recommend lowering your average cmc to present more early game relevance.
Also a couple specific Planeswalkers help with a backup plan when primary combo fails and you gotta go token beatdown.
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar immediate ult, buffing all dudes and impossible to remove.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad again immediate emblem buff.
Ajani, Strength of the Pride that 0 ability ult is easily obtainable and puts us in a prime position to win.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion board wipe, massive token producer, and back-breaking ult with token swarm.
Thumbs up and an upvote for the Primer.

I don't know how much you want but I'm going to recommend some cards as a Teysa, Orzhov Scion fan.
Planar Cleansing or Hour of Revelation is great in EDH to start the board over all over again. Merciless Eviction is something you should definitely keep in the deck by the way.
Anointed Procession is really good for doubling up on token effects. Requiem Angel and Field of Souls can be really nice too. Army of the Damned can provide a lot of bodies to work with. I've won with Army of the Damned and Maw of the Obzedat before. Storm Herd is an absolute beast too.
Two artifacts that you should consider are Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar . These can let you go infinite if you also get a Darkest Hour or a Painter's Servant . I have a Darkest Hour in mine, can't justify the price of the Painter's Servant yet. Either way both of those Altars are great with or without going infinite.
Illusionist's Bracers are great on Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Maw of the Obzedat should you include one as well. Three tokens to exile two creatures? Yes, please. In theory, if you have a Maw with the Bracers out and you Storm Herd at 40 life, you can sacrifice 5 of them and have 35 11/11 flying pegasus. Great card, I think it's underrated.
Also consider getting gravepact and/or Dictate of Erebos and maybe a Martyr's Bond too. You may not exile creatures with Teysa when they're out because of the way the stack works and if you sacrifice three creatures they'll sacrifice theirs before Teysa can exile it, but it's extremely good to keep your creatures out and have everyone else open.

I'm coming in with a lot here. Not going to say what to take out due to how much I am recommending, sorry.
I'd say Soul's Attendant is strictly better than Warden but running both isn't bad either. I like Attendant for when people play anti-life gain cards like Rain of Gore and others. Of course, Phyrexian Altar is a second altar that's a great sac outlet whenever you need it. Consider cards like Dictate of Erebos and Martyr's Bond , I see you already have Grave Pact on the maybeboard. Teysa Karlov is a great card to get too but consider Teysa, Orzhov Scion .
Also, you definitely should go for an Anointed Procession . Too good of a card for any white deck with tokens. This deck is already looking great though.
