Hey, you're welcome.

In my opinion the reason to add Guide is give you a combo win with aristocrats. You're right, Guide doesn't trigger Teysa, but the interaction of Guide + Lark creating a dying loop is one of the best interactions with aristocrats. I agree with you, tokens and dying effect strategies are good with Teysa Karlov as Commander. These strategies are much better with her as Commander than aristocrats strategies because Teysa herself is not a combo piece for aristocrats.

My advice is expand on the token theme and dying effects that interact with tokens and reduce the aristocrat strategies. Mirror Entity is a card to consider adding since it can pump tokens and Teysa to huge amounts or be a sac outlet to trigger a lot of dying effects.

I played Teysa Karlov aristocrats for a while, but switched to Teysa, Orzhov Scion as the Commander because Scion is an actual combo piece with aristocrats.


Cards to consider cutting:

king-saproling on Toshiro's Samurai Guide - Harikiri Those Instants!

Slaughter could be interesting since it not only triggers Toshiro, but it has buyback so you can recur it indefinitely (even if you cast it using Toshiro's ability). Imps' Taunt works in a similar way and is an interesting form of disruption for mono-black.

Necropotence exiles all my cards i discard, which would interfere with the reanimator theme, so i skipped that.

I ran Night's Whisper , Sign in Blood and Ancient Craving at first, but i wanted repeatable card draw and preferable not in sorcery speed. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Greed are often enough, Ob Nixilis Reignited and/or Wretched Confluence and Vilis, Broker of Blood and Phyrexian Arena should be enough card draw in most cases.

Looks like a fun list. Have you considered Wretched Confluence over Ob Nixilis Reignited ? Confluence can get you 3 cards in a single turn vs the 3 it takes with Ob. If you don’t need the cards it can still kill a most creatures or get you back something out of your graveyard or any combination of the above.

Yes, I would recommend cutting those 2 sorceries. Diabolic Tutor you can keep if you want - it's much better than Barter in Blood . Wretched Confluence is something you could cut instead. It doesn't do enough at all for 5.

Bolas's Citadel is a great card and you should run it.

Okay, i found a few things i'd take out:

MINUS

  • Endless Atlas Black has way better options to draw cards.
  • Underworld Connections Is funny, as you can enchant your opponents lands, but i don't think that was the plan here. Generally slows you down by 1 mana when used, which is bad, even with untapping effects, it's still not good.
  • Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip This also slows you down a lot and pays off way too late.
  • Dark Prophecy Your opponents can pretty much always see this coming, and it relies on a setup.
  • Priest of Forgotten Gods Also slow and relying on a dozen conditions, is a creature though.
  • The Elderspell You're not running PWs, so you can't fully make use of it's effects.
  • Abhorrent Overlord Sadly it's not devotion for colorless :(
  • Inverter of Truth I know this guy's an eldrazi, but this is sort of anti-synergetic with your deck.

Here's the cards i'd take in.

This is some of the best carddraw black has to offer and in the entire game, makes your deck faster and more consistent in getting these eldrazi running:

PLUS

Depending on your playgroup and since you mentioned liking long games, here's a favorite when you've got trouble dealing with that combo.deck:

Sadistic Sacrament or Hymn to Tourach

Hope that helped ;)
