Creature — Human Cleric
You have shroud. (You can't be the target of spells or abilities.)
True Believer Discussion

I've yet to find a solid replacement for Shalai, Voice of Plenty . There are cards that protect your permanents and cards that protect you but generally not both. Leyline of Sanctity gives you hexproof, but not your stuff. Same with Spirit of the Hearth . Ivory Mask is pseudo-shroud. True Believer is cheaper, both are less useful than hexproof. Along those lines Amulet of Safekeeping doesn't give hexproof, but it'll probably keep you from being targeted arbitrarily in multiplayer from its tax, and it also slightly debuffs tokens. Didn't work well for me when I tried it but it was a neat idea. Maybe could be sideboarded in against people who like to spawn tons of 1/1 ankle-biters? idk
Consider Avacyn, Angel of Hope to defend your permanents. It's not hexproof, but destruction is the most common type of removal and she prevents that.

In response to your questions HyperViper191:
Tutors can never hurt if you want to go that route, card draw and finding key pieces are always relevant (I just don't run many tutors for personal reasons).
If you create a lot of tokens and your deck is more token based then include Divine Visitation ! In token heavy Teysa decks it can be really powerful.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask! I'm also working on a more budget build using cards from my collection, so when I finish I'll let you know if you want to see it. I'm glad you like the deck!

Or you can go the ultimate jank route and use cards like Lapse of Certainty ^^

Only thing that protects you from that is cards that protect you like True Believer or Leyline of Sanctity . Other than that you have to rely on effects like Volrath's Stronghold , shuffle effects like pitching Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to grave, or cracking Elixir of Immortality . Last resort measure is also Pull from Eternity but that's a long stretch.

Really like the deck. It seems like a very solid initial draft, not really sure why you have it flagged for needing/wanting help.
The only 'hatebear-y' stuff that I can think of to suggest are Bounty Agent, Mother of Runes and True Believer but all are pretty dependent on your meta. The Believer can be good if you face spell intensive or combo opponents, the Agent can shine against people playing expensive commanders or anything that runs things like Paradox Engine or Helm of the Host

Hey man. Your list seems okay on paper, but I've been playing Saffi for almost 3 years now, and can see a lot of problems that your list is sure to run in to in a real game.
Immediate changes I would make:
- Naturalize >> Nature's Claim
- Angelic Renewal >> Survival of the Fittest
- Scattered Groves >> Brushland
These cards will accelerate your deck more than you know.
Furthermore, you should make slots for better pieces of protection, as other decks at the table that run more advantageous colors like Blue and Black, and will surely out-pace you, even at full power. Sylvan Tutor is an instant include to speed you up, as are Summoner's Pact and Chord of Calling. You lands that enter tapped should be replaced with better options, such as Mana Confluence and/or City of Brass, as color fixing is a must. That being said, Glacial Chasm should be there to protect you and be your best Crop Rotation target. For creatures to protect yourself please consider: Aegis of the Gods or True Believer, and Tajuru Preserver.
Lastly, I would drop the Skullclamp/Mentor of the Meek package. You're taking up too many card slots devoted to something to is inefficient is terms of mana usage. If you really want to get card draw down, please use Soul of the Harvest (and check out how Loyal Retainers gets you there with Soul and with Fecundity).
All in all this is a fairly solid list, but don't be afraid to check out mine!

Selfless Spirit helps against board wipes.

Swords to Plowshares over Reciprocate, as it is a budget option, and is the best creature removal in the game, apart from some minor cases where Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Chain of Vapor, and Path to Exile are better, all in specific decks.
Soldier of the Pantheon is a really powerful card I would suggest, dependent on who you play against, like Dragon Hunter, but it can't be dealt damage by a multicolored creature or spell, and can't be blocked or targetted by one either, so it ends up that you can effectively get free wins against some decks!
Obviously, Recruiter of the Guard and a bunch of one-of cards like Palace Jailer, Sanctum Prelate, True Believer, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and other 'hate' cards that almost instantly win against the right deck can be good, but isn't cheap to build.
War Priest of Thune can be good against enchantments, Accorder Paladin for a more aggressive strategy, Knight of the Holy Nimbus if you go against removal heavy decks, Riders of Gavony against any tribe, and Imposing Sovereign for fun. Even Field Marshal can be sweet!
