Hey, welcome to TappedOut :) Saw your forum topic asking for help. Very nice first deck. I'm here to give advice therefore I'm going to suggest a lot of upgrades. I hope this doesn't upset you as this is by no means a slight on your deck building.

Orzhov is a really hot guild right now for causal Commander because of Teysa Karlov. Tymna is one of the best Orzhov creatures in Commander, but to abuse her ability you want evasive creatures because they have to do combat damage to opponents to draw cards. Consider expanding on the theme of tokens, Spirit tokens (afterlife) and other flying tokens/creatures? Tokens are good with Teysa as well as Ravos since he's an anthem. Teysa gives tokens lifelink which is helpful to regain life after losing it to draw from Tymna.

Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider adding:

  • Caves of Koilos
  • Tainted Field
  • Reliquary Tower : staple land, no max hand size is helpful when playing and utilizing Tynma as well as Skullclamp.
  • Luminarch Ascension : powerful card in multiplayer Commander since it looks at each opponent's end step. Repeatable source of 4/4 flying tokens is amazing.
  • Doomed Traveler : combines with Skullclamp and Teysa to draw lots of cards.
  • Tithe Taker : same as Traveler as well as makes it harder for your opponents to cast spells or activate abilities during your turn.
  • Aven Mindcensor : staple white creature, tutors are a huge part of Commander this prevents your opponents from using them effectively. Flying helps with Tynma.
  • Reveillark : staple white creature, combos with Karmic Guide and is very good with Teysa. Can reanimate Teysa/Tynma as well as creatures with afterlife. Good with recursion of Ravos.
  • Karmic Guide : staple white creature, combos with Reveillark to reanimate lots of 2 or less power creatures. Good with recursion of Ravos.
  • Spectral Procession
  • Lingering Souls
  • Blind Obedience : helps to clear away some blockers to do combat damage to opponents. Mana rocks are huge part of Commander and this prevents your opponents from using rocks the turn they play them. Extort is nice to gain some life and make opponents lose life.
  • Spirit Bonds : repeatable way to make flying tokens.
  • Edgewalker : Tymna and Ravos are Clerics this reduces their mana costs. Tymna costs only one mana and Ravos three mana. There's also a lot of other Clerics here.
  • Pitiless Plunderer : creates treasures, very good with Teysa and a sac outlet. Works with tokens.
  • Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim : sac outlet and repeatable exile. With Edgewalker she's free to cast.
  • Soul Warden : gain life when creatures ETB (enter the battlefield) even opponents creatures, tokens ETB when they're created.
  • Soul's Attendant : same as Warden.
  • Sun Titan : staple white creature, reanimate any 3 or less permanent when ETB or attacks is great.
  • Swords to Plowshares : staple white removal, exile is very helpful in Commander.
  • Crush Contraband : exiling any two artifacts or enchantments at instant speed for four mana is good.
  • Orzhov Signet : two drop mana rock.

Can add all these cards for about $25. All for less than one Demonic Tutor , haha :)


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • New Benalia
  • Forge of Heroes
  • Basilica Bell-Haunt
  • Ghost Council of Orzhova
  • Loyal Unicorn
  • Necrotic Ooze
  • Regal Bloodlord
  • Skeletal Vampire
  • Syndicate Guildmage
  • Visara the Dreadful
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Hero of Precinct One
  • Pitiless Pontiff
  • Perpetual Timepiece
  • Blessing of Leeches
  • Open the Graves
  • Consecrate / Consume
  • In Garruk's Wake
  • Pull from Eternity
  • Mortify
  • Sorin, Grim Nemesis

Good luck with your deck.

Thank you DRmagic2017

Tithe Taker and Baird, Steward of Argive are very good cards, but I'm more or less planning on getting attacked, so I don't think I'm going to put them in.

Selfless Spirit , Conqueror's Pledge , Pennon Blade and Stoneforge Masterwork are very good tips for which I am very grateful to you, I will definitely think about them I just have to think about which I throw out for them. Maybe you have some suitable suggestions.

Westvale Abbey  Flip and everything that goes with it, I would immediately include it in the deck, but I believe that Ormendahl, Profane Prince is considered a black creature, so I can't include it in a white commander deck. For the same reason, I also decided against Archangel Avacyn  Flip.

Hi! I like the deck and Soldier tribe is among my favorites. Just some ideas. Lands: Eiganjo Castle for more protection, Westvale Abbey  Flip as an alternative wincon. Creatures: Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip (turns into a Planeswalker easily), Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip (more tokens to transform Westvale Abbey  Flip), Selfless Spirit to protect your army, Tithe Taker ( Grand Abolisher looks much better but Tithe Taker is a Soldier), Baird, Steward of Argive (an element of pillowfort strategy), Selfless Squire - to protect yourself. Sorceries: Conqueror's Pledge for more tokens. Artifacts: Pennon Blade and Stoneforge Masterwork . Good luck!

I'm adding in some Pitiless Pontiff s instead of Tithe Taker s. With all the tokens that will be coming into play, I'm going to use Suture Priest until the price of Seraph of the Scales comes down.

I like what I see but... I have some opinions

Your creature selection is weak, there are better cards at your desposal than what you are using.

And since most of my suggestions, and most of your creatures are either soldiers or humans...

You also have a tokens subtheme, all of which are soldiers or humans:

Also I feel like you are missing some really good creature/boros cards

If you are going to play Equipment tutors, you should be playing these;

Maybe not all of them but one or two for sure.

Lastly I think you may have just two too many mana rocks, you aren't playing 3 colors.

You're going to have a lot of dead cards in you hand if you run that many copies of your legendary creatures. Consider also playing some sort of discard/draw engine to filter out the cards you don't need at the moment, like Faithless Looting . Also since you're in red, you pretty much have no reason to not play Lightning Bolt . Other than that I think your mainboard is solid.

For your sideboard: You'll want graveyard hate first and foremost right now, so I'd go with Relic of Progenitus , or Rest in Peace .

I'd go with two copies of Settle the Wreckage as well. Great sweeper, especially since you'll just end up destroying what they put down anyway. If you think the drawback is too much, at least put Lightning Bolt in the sideboard instead if you're not gonna run it on main.

Since you're in both red and white, I'll suggest three Wear / Tear . Really versatile.

Maybe you can get something to protect your creatures against control decks, so something like Brave the Elements might be good for you. Alternatively, you can sideboard in other creatures like Tithe Taker or Grand Abolisher against control decks to tax them further.

Since you have a ton of lands in the deck, it might not hurt to throw in a couple Banefire on the sideboard against decks that you can tax fast and build yourself up. With a deck that's 28 lands, you'll have more opportunities than you think.

You'll wanna cover yourself up against burn, and your best option is Leyline of Sanctity .

Lastly, a couple Damping Sphere for spellslinging decks and tron.

With a sideboard like that you'll have answers to everything, especially since your mainboard already shuts them down.

Hope this helps!

multimedia on Teysa

Hey, this is a good start. For upgrades consider adding more cards that give you repeatable value when creatures die especially draw?

One of the best upgrades to consider is Skullclamp . This card is amazing with Teysa and tokens because when the equipped creature dies you draw four cards, yes four cards. There's a large amount of low mana cost creatures who create a token when they die; with Teysa they create two or more tokens. These cards give you three or more possible creatures to equip Skullclamp too.

Doomed Traveler for example can draw 12 cards, three different equips for 3-5 mana depending on if you already have Skullclamp/Traveler on the battlefield or not. You already have Elenda and she's the kind of token value you want when creatures die or when she dies. Other cards that can be repeatable draw when creatures die are Dark Prophecy , Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper . Prophecy triggers when tokens die.

Cards to consider adding:

Reveillark (Lark) + Karmic Guide + no mana cost sac outlet (Ashnod, Dementia, Seer, Feeder, etc.) is an infinite combo that includes a infinite dies loop (Lark and Karmic loop each other). Lark is a great card with Teysa because if it leaves the battlefield as a result of it dying (evoking it, being saced, being killed by opponent, dies in combat) then it will trigger Teysa or other cards dies abilities. With Teysa if it does die you can reanimate four creatures with power 2 or less instead of two, but you don't actually need Teysa to combo with Lark.

This combo is powerful with Cutthroat and Artist since then it's also a win condition. It's also a win condition with Dementia as the sac outlet by milling all your opponents decks. Ashnods makes unlimited colorless mana. Solemn you draw your deck and put all your basic lands onto the battlefield. There's many other cards you can add that do different infinite effects with this combo. What's great about Lark and Karmic is they're good cards with or without the combo.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Ancient Stone Idol
  • Aryel, Knight of Windgrace
  • Knight of Sorrows
  • Laquatus's Champion
  • Pitiless Pontiff
  • Priest of Forgotten Gods
  • Death's-Head Buzzard
  • Sangromancer
  • Black Cat
  • Gleaming Barrier
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Whisper, Blood Liturgist
  • Dowsing Dagger
  • Bankrupt in Blood
  • Revival / Revenge
  • Exquisite Blood
  • Sanguine Bond

Good luck with your deck.
