Chhris while Mina and Denn, Wildborn would fit in the deck I already have 2 Artifacts that give trample. And honestly I think I have enough mana dorks and ramp spells to compensate for what her other ability would offer. Keeping Tithe Taker in also puts my opponents in a bind which is what I added him for. He is a possible removal but not for Mina and Denn. Thanks for your suggestion and feel free to

Another fun and relatively inexpensive card to pair with Teysa is Revel in Riches . With her out, you'll get twice the treasure tokens for each creature you kill on your opponents' boards. Not only does this help fix your mana, but it gives you an added win-con as well. If you can afford to splurge a little more for it, this pairs exceptionally well with Smothering Tithe as well to potentially get more treasures if your opponents choose to be stingy with each draw. Open the Graves , Doomed Traveler , and Tithe Taker are also nice options for token generating death triggers that are pretty cheap.

My first thoughts are either Mirari's Wake or Tithe Taker . Wake only because as as voltron-style build, it's be harder to reach that 20 power requirement.

Also, I am a fan of a lot of the Ravnica Allegiance afterlife cards like Tithe Taker , Imperious Oligarch , etc. Hunted Witness too.

i think running a playset of both Tithe Taker and Teferi, Time Raveler is a bit overkill, having a teferi in hand or on board makes the other teferi's and tithe that you have are useless/

I think Fblthp, the Lost doesn't really have a place in this deck,

I think you might want to replace the above with a god enternal, i think kefnet and oketra can both work.

Hi MgStrange

Due to the recent spoilers my approach to Teysa Karlov has changed definitely. I do not see her at all in the Sideboard for two reasons mainly. The first one is that she's much more niche than all the other Sideboard cards like Duress or Tithe Taker . The second reason is that post-sideboard, most decks will bring Cry of the Carnarium which is effectively a wrath against this deck that exiles the creatures.

That being said, I did consider to make this deck slightly grindier due to both Cruel Celebrant and Mayhem Devil , and thus create a board state that you bring up God-Eternal Bontu and drain them a ton. In that case, Teysa can easily represent lethal! So, with the new cards in the set, she might even be a Mainboard consideration.

Thanks for the comments a bunch! And have fun brewing! :D

Jeez, is this what Standard’s gonna look like now? Every deck is superfriends? Yikes.

On the plus side, this deck is absolutely disgusting! Love the mainboard Tocatli Honor Guard . The only thing I can even think of is to maybe run Tithe Taker in the main? I don’t know.

List seems solid. +1

Hey, looks good. Interesting strategy of getting value from life gain with Teysa, but where's Skullclamp ? :)

Consider more mana rocks to potentially ramp into Teysa faster? More mana rocks are also good with several of the higher CMC creatures here. Consider expanding on the getting value from gaining life gain strategy, it makes your deck more unique.

Cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider adding to expand on the life gain:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Swamp
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Orzhov Basilica
  • Priest of Forgotten Gods
  • Yosei, the Morning Star
  • Xathrid Necromancer
  • Disciple of Bolas
  • Orzhov Enforcer
  • Ogre Slumlord
  • Severed Strands
  • Killing Wave
  • Open the Graves

These cards are by no means bad cards they just have less impact then other cards in your deck and they cost too mana for what they do.

Good luck with your deck.
