Before that even...
Now let's get to business...
Recently, I wanted to "Even the Odds" as MTGGoldfish does for some things that are meant to be truly impossibibble (Yes, I spelt it wrong on-purpose for a reason better than yours.) when it comes to Orzhov beating a certain Animar, Soul of Elements , which has full protection over a Syndicate known for their Currency Creation, & Religeous Scorn over Poverty. That said, I'm trying to make said EDH deck for the purpose of beating Animar (Be it "Unfitting" Morph Tribal, Mass Creature casting, & just making Animar stronger each time.); but this story doesn't end here. I actually also want it to be just as capale at beating that as with at least some others. Where do my problems start? The Commander thyself; I just don't know what commander in the Syndicate to use that isn't just another Life-Manipulation, or mass grave manipulation. I don't want to use any creature that one can overuse the amount of all at the same time (I abhorr you Shadowborn Apostle .), I just want a strategy that works.
Here's what & has that you might not know:
Time Magic: - Temporal Extortion (Although only one in this case, it can be reused...)
That said, I'm going to need stuf better than this for the Orzhov Syndicate to conquer Nature, & ruin its army as well. I really would like some suggestions for this. Maybe the cards above are not that good to you, but at least I have something. I believe my Landbase is fine as it is. What do you think should be changed though?
(& why am I acting like a goldfish on a frying pan?!)

Withering Boon and Song of Freyalise are sweet, underplayed tech, especially for Golgari Elves. Kudos for using those. I'm working on a Nath deck for one of my kids and I'm definitely going to borrow from your list.

Are they cedh viable? Nah probably not but you’re guaranteed to get someone asking to RTC because they just don’t know wtf it is, and that makes me moist.

Oh, you want examples? Heap Doll is the type of stuff this deck runs. 1 mana watses of a card that only occasionally could give value with the 5 mana commander with no immediate impact on the board.
Oh, but at least the numerous 1 mana do nothings are at least only 1 mana, right? Workhorse has something to show you.
Do you want to actually know what 'control' it has? No countermagic in mono-black (Unless Dash Hopes or Withering Boon are going be your fancy) so it has to have serious removal, yep, this list runs all of the cEDH classics like Fume Spitter , the mana efficient card draw in the form of Harvester of Souls , yep, and hate pieces like Sorceress Queen .
Also, Tasigur, as Mighty_Darknut said does have some very efficient interactions, but I am still going to stick by my word that Divergent Control is the best permission control list in the format, a link is at BUGR Divergent Control. It uses Notion Thief and Whirlpool Warrior as its combo target, and I while am more a fan of Kiki-Exarch it it's place, it does do work.
Other powerful permission control lists are Tasigur, GAAIV, Baral, and Rashmi.

goldlion Yes! I always find myself one short of a turn before I need to combo out on T2/3 so I might need to do some re-tuning. The one thing I love about my deck is the pure consistency, this is my favorite deck to play that can be on par with true Maximum Power/Competitive commanders. Plus I haven't seen any other Teneb decks like this one that's been tuned or optimized, I'm fairly proud of this one as well as my Intet deck (although I'm still in a dilemma on optimizing my Intet one right now, currently JohnnyCRO and SynergyBuild has been giving me great ideas to re-tuning her).
@ SynergyBuild You made me laugh haha!, I love off color counterspells that are jank, but you are right if it works...IT WORKS!
My best friend wanted to make a 5C deck with ALL the counterspells to troll people haha!

I know right! There is so many...I was so caught off guard with another one of my friend using Lapse of Certainty in his mono-white deck...I know we all know Mana Tithe and Withering Boon but dang was I surprised...

I absolutely love Teysa, she is a blast to play as there are so many ways you can play her! Here might be a couple suggestions that may help. Contamination and Bitterblossom is a nasty way to shut down your opponents and if you have Teysa on the field the sac tokens provide you fodder for Teysa's ability, although the cards are quite on higher end side. Plaguecrafter is another recent addition that is a direct upgrade to Fleshbag Marauder. Mindblade Render is a great way to add in more card draw as we are quite limited in the Orzhov colors. Buried Alive is another great way to fill up your graveyard, and the direct upgrade Entomb is also great although quite pricey. One cheap reanimation spell I would recommend would be Dance of the Dead and if you have the budget, Reanimate which is getting reprinted in Ultimate Masters, Necromancy is also a great one. Dread Return also has plenty of synergy with Teysa.
Silence can really mess up people and has quickly becoming a staple in any deck build involving white. Withering Boon and Lapse of Certainty has been great LOL cards that people would never expect. Body Snatcher is also a double up on Karmic Guide that can lead to more combos.
Hope these can help ya and feel free to ask for any advice as I play against my friends competitive Teysa deck often :P
